Get Rid of Growing Pains! Growing Pain Relief Bath & Massage Oil

As a parent, one of the most common ailments we see, are growing pains. It starts at bedtime (or even in the middle of the night), and keeps the whole house awake until they go away! It's rough seeing your child go through pain, no matter the severity. Especially in the middle of the night, when everyone in the house needs their sleep! It was around three years old that Syfy would wake up in the middle of the night crying in pain because his legs hurt. With small children, their sleep patterns are always changing as they grow, but we, as parents, tend to get used to the times when they are sleeping well. At this time, Syfy had been sleeping 12 hour nights with no issues waking up in the middle of the night. I was getting used to sleeping so well, and began to let the routine feel comfortable until the growing pains began, and my 8 hours of sleep went down to 3. I was desperate to find a natural solution that could help us all get back to those prized nights of sleep.  Continue reading “Get Rid of Growing Pains! Growing Pain Relief Bath & Massage Oil”

Soothe Your Sore Muscles – DIY Muscle Mender Oil & Salve

Pain is something I understand very well. I have been dealing with it for the majority of my life. I have spent the last two decades studying and testing out all sorts of pain relief medications, exercises, salves, creams, drugs, and more. The secret to my own pain relief wasn't in any pill bottle. It included ditching all kinds of foods and cosmetics that contain neural-toxins, yoga 3-5 times a week, and my own homemade herbal infused salves massaged all over my back and legs.

Let Your Herbal Goddess Shine – A DIY Herbal Infused Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

My natural hair care journey hasn't been an easy one. I have experienced everything from hair falling out when I tried the whole baking soda thing, to super oily and heavy detoxing hair that I had to wear up for a little over 2 months before it was finally done detoxing. These days, my hair is longer than it's ever been my whole life and it's far healthier than it was 2 years ago. This journey has taught me a lot about my hair, but it's also taught to me love the hair I was given. Over the last 2 years of creating my own herbal hair care products, I have found a very simple ingredient to be my star secret in my natural hair care routine. Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar!

Soothe the Sting – DIY Bee Sting & Wasp Sting Relief for Adults, Kids, & Dogs

I have always been a bit afraid of being stung by bees or wasps. I love honey bees and do what I can to not hurt them. Wasps, on the other hand, terrify me to no end. Incidentally, I got my first wasp sting ever, at the same time that Syfy also received his. Spring had just begun this year, and we were out hiking in the Oak Point Nature Preserve. I must have poked a fallen nest with my walking stick because out of nowhere there were a couple wasps angrily chasing us around in circles, until we both got stung, him in the head and me just under my eye where my sunglasses don't reach (let me tell you…that swells up a lot more than other spots!). Realizing the angry wasps were guarding our way back out of the woods, I remembered my homemade Bugs-B-Gone spray was in my backpack and pulled it out. Please don't laugh too hard, but yes, I totally sprayed the air above and in front of us with that spray, effectively getting us out of the woods without being stung again.

Calm Your Sneeze & Allergies with Allergy Annihilator – a Kid-Friendly Seasonal Allergy Essential Oil Blend

If you have ever lived in Texas, then you know the plight of the person affected by seasonal allergies. I had never really experienced seasonal allergies while I grew up in California (this Hippy is not a native Texan if you couldn't tell!), but all that changed when we moved to Dallas, Texas. At first, I didn't think it would affect me because I was feeling great while watching everyone else around me sneeze, wheeze, and complain of congestion. Two years into living in Texas and suddenly I understood what all these poor people were going through. Seasonal allergies really suck!

Homemade Electrolyte Drink – A Healthy Gatorade Alternative with Four Tasty Flavors

After a good workout, replenishing electrolytes is important, but the last place that I turn to is Gatorade. Growing up, Gatorade was a staple when we were sick or exercising. I remember whenever one of us had the flu, there was always chicken noodle soup and a bottle of Gatorade was always on hand. I myself, never really liked Gatorade. I have always found water and iced tea to be much more satisfying to my thirst. After learning just how easy it is to get electrolytes into your body through natural means, I wondered why I even needed to buy Gatorade or Powerade anymore.  Continue reading “Homemade Electrolyte Drink – A Healthy Gatorade Alternative with Four Tasty Flavors”
