Congratulations on your new upcoming baby! A bunch of well-meaning people will give you a lot of advice from here on out. Some of it, the stuff that resonates with you, keep in your file for later. The rest of it, the crazy stuff you would never do, just smile and nod and remember that YOU have the ultimate say in the end. You are going to be a Mom!!! Let me tell you, I was terrified of the idea of stretching my belly big enough to fit a whole baby in there. As tiny as I was, I couldn't fathom where a baby would fit. Because of this fear, I ended up slathering a mixture of the best butters and oils that I could find, on my belly every single day of my pregnancy (or at least all the days that I remembered to before I passed out in front of the TV).

It's that time of year that everyone and their brother is trying to cleanse, be healthier, eat differently, etc. It's the same story every year, and it's a great one! The world is trying really hard to be healthier and hoping that they stick to their guns and make it their new lifestyle. One of the most popular (and one of my favorite) health trends is juicing. There is so much more to juicing than just getting juice from fruits and veggies, so tonight we're going to help ease you into adding juicing into your lifestyle and hopefully clear up a few myths too!

When I am craving something sweet, I like to trick myself with sneakily healthy desserts that feed my sweet tooth cravings without all the guilt afterward. I feel like a lot of people don't realize just how easy it is to put together something sweet and tasty without all the icky stuff that you are trying to avoid with your diet right now. When it comes to making something quick to feed my midnight cravings, I always turn to smoothies.
It's the start of the new year and everyone is trying to keep themselves on track with their new healthy goals for 2016. Smoothies are definitely a big part of the health movement, and if you are trying to detox, go vegan, lose weight, or just plain be healthier, it's likely that smoothies on are your list to try out. I am right there with you! This year, with a renewed vigor for keeping my body healthy, I decided I was going to get serious about my smoothiemaking and really try harder to have breakfast every morning.
A new year means that many of us are taking a look at the healthy habits that we have in place. With every new year, I always try to make healthier choices that I am hoping will turn into habits.

In the middle of winter, my skin starts to dry out hardcore, and I start looking for more ways to get moisture into it. After a particularly terrible bout of poison ivy a couple years back, I didn't have any money on hand and really wanted something soothing like an Aveeno oatmeal bath. I decided that it couldn't be hard to make and in the end made mine way better than Aveeno's by upgrading the ingredients in my recipe!
It happened again last week! During quiet time, the kiddo was so good about playing quietly in his room that I accidentally took a short nap on the couch while I was supposed to be getting some work done. Syfy woke me with a start, grinning from ear to ear that he had caught mommy in a narcoleptic moment. For a minute there, I groggily stared at him, wondering exactly what moment it was that had done me in, but for the life of me, I couldn't even remember falling asleep. You can't blame me. I had been up since 3 am that morning, doing my job as mom, and then working at 7 am on the blog, getting homeschool done for the day after everyone is fed, walked, pooped, etc. By the time I sit down to get my own work done, I am already exhausted from the day. All I can think while drifting off to sleep unknowingly, is how does that Super Mom down the street, keep her eyes open for the WHOLE day??? I've got to have her secret.

Why are guys the ones with gorgeously long and thick eyelashes that every woman would kill for? I know that I am not the only envious one out there! I have lived my entire life with thin blonde-tipped eyelashes, that just don't show up to the party without a few coats of some good mascara. While there are some eyelash serums on the market that profess miraculous results, their ingredients are less than stellar, many of which are known carcinogens. Like all of my other beauty products, this is what led me to create my own herbal infused eyelash growth serum, instead.

I have dealt with eczema for nearly all of my life. For most of that time, it was just something that I dealt with and not something that I could get rid of. I was told there was no cure, was given all sorts of creams (many of which contained toxic ingredients that had large cautions on the tubes), and endured super itchy scaly skin that left everyone staring while I was scratching voraciously. It wasn't until Syfy started showing signs of eczema on the backs of his arms, that I began to care about finding a natural remedy to heal up our eczema. It turns out, like everything else on this natural hippy journey, the “cure” lies in your diet. Continue reading “Healing Eczema Naturally – DIY Herbal Infused Eczema Eraser Balm”
We are in the midst of the holiday season and so many of my friends are asking me what they should get their essential oil and herb loving friends and family members! This is just about the easiest question for me to answer because these are all things I would absolutely get super stoked over if I received any of these items as gifts! Of course, you might want to just try and homemake your gifts for her, him, or the kids instead!
