Dealing With Dry Skin Naturally – DIY Wintertime Herbal Whipped Body Butter

During the wintertime, dry skin is a problem for pretty much everyone out there, but it can be even worse for those working in jobs where they are washing their hands frequently. If you are dealing with dry, cracked skin, then you are likely feeling the pain of trying to heal during the wintertime! Both the Hippy Hubby and I have worked in the service industry, having to wash our hands frequently, doing the dishes with harsh soaps several times a shift, and cleaning with harsh cleaners every day. All this wear and tear was taking a toll on the Hippy Hubby's hands, so I decided to make him a body butter, but I took it a step further and infused it with skin healing herbs to help heal his hands, while deeply moisturizing his skin. It turns out, this herbal infused body butter works so well, we both use it for all our skin healing needs now.

Top Your Pies & Hot Cocoa with Dairy-Free Homemade Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

Both Syfy and I have issues with dairy and try to avoid it as much as possible these days (with the exception of really good cheese and yogurt!). I use non-dairy options instead when making all of our classic favorites! One of first things that I searched out to learn how to make, was whipped cream. I grew up in a household that believes that no hot cocoa and no pumpkin pie should ever go without at least a dollop (or more….) of whipped cream! This is law in our house and so the thought of getting rid of all of our dairy had daunted me, when I realized that also meant my beloved whipped cream. Don't be sad! There is a fantastic and super simple alternative that tastes just as great! Take it from this whipped-creamaholic that this coconut milk whipped cream is SUPER good and doesn't taste like coconut to me, at all.  Continue reading “Top Your Pies & Hot Cocoa with Dairy-Free Homemade Coconut Milk Whipped Cream”

Ditch the Bronchial Irritants & Breathe Happier w/the Bohemi Babes – Episode 10

I don't know about you, but when I hear that Febreze commercial using the slogan “breathe happier,” I tend to get all worked up over it. It is impossible to “breathe happier” when you are breathing in toxins, allergens, and bronchial irritants, all of which are ingredients in Febreze room sprays, candles, and other “air fresheners” sold on the market. I almost feel like all of these companies should be charged with false advertisement, for labeling their products “air fresheners”.
