Making Healthy Choices- DIY Electric Dishwasher Detergent

Yesterday I was inspired by my friend Leah, a fellow oiler and Heaven Scent Team Member, and after hearing of her success with her homemade DIY electric dishwasher powder I decided it was finally time for me make the switch from store bought dishwasher detergent to my own homemade version. I knew that I was almost out of Cascade so the timing was perfect. She informed me that she makes her own dishwasher detergent and said regarding Cascade… “I can’t tolerate it at all! When I went to use it at my mom’s it made me seriously nauseous. I stopped using it a couple of years ago and was using the melaleuca dishwasher liquid but it is very pricey!!” I told her that one would think that any residue would be rinsed away during the rinse cycle. She replied… “Nooooo…. the heat drying usually bakes it into the dish. Put … Continue reading

Making Healthy Choices- Living Chemical Free

Lets be honest… living totally chemical free in this present day and age is next to impossible! That being said there are simple steps that we can take to greatly reduce our exposure to them and at the top of my list is getting rid of plastics. You see many of the everyday common plastics that we are using contain a potentially dangerous chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA). So you probably find yourself wondering “What in the world IS BPA and why is it so dangerous?” It’s a controversial plastic additive widely used in plastic packaging and the lining of drinks cans. It’s been shown to be a hormone disruptor and many have concerns about its potentially adverse human health effects caused by exposure to this synthetic estrogen. It has been linked to numerous issues, such as reproductive, immunity, neurological problems, and metabolic disease, along with others like cardiovascular disease, childhood … Continue reading

NingXia Red Gummie Vites for Children

Gummie Worms are very popular so it should come as no surprise that Gummie Vites (children’s vitamin) has been a big success too. But what if I was to tell you that there is a way for you to make a homemade version of this popular candy… they’re called NingXia RED Gummie Vites. I recently ran across the recipe below and was immediately drawn to it.

Making your own version gives you the ability to add other very beneficial ingredients like gelatin, one of the main benefits of bone broth; and probiotics and enzymes. Parenting is oh so rewarding but hardly ever what I … Continue reading

What’s Lurking In Your Cabinets?

Have you ever wondered what’s lurking in your cabinets as you look at the stash of cleaning products residing there? Unfortunately most household cabinets are full of harmful, toxic cleaners and many people, if not most, are unaware of the dangers they pose to our health. Our home is our sanctuary- it should be a place of rest, relaxation and wellness… a safe haven for our loved ones (including our beloved pets), and friends, not a place of environmental pollution. As we strive to create a safe, healthy environment in our home it’s important to learn what hidden dangers may be lurking there and then work to systematically remove them. Surprisingly government regulations don’t require manufacturers to list all ingredients, just those that are combustible, corrosive, poisonous, etc. Most household cleaning products contain toxic chemicals like ammonia, formaldehyde, phthalates, benzalkonium chlorid, and 2-butoxyethanol, just to name a few. Among the … Continue reading
