Kicking Toxic Products to the Curb- DEODORANT

Each and every day we use products in our homes, most of the time on a daily basis, that are slowly poisoning us with toxic chemicals. Most people are under the assumption that if a product is available for sale and found on our grocery store shelves that it must be safe. That our government rules and regulations, and agencies like the EPA and FDA, are protecting us from harmful chemical exposure. Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. Our system of limiting exposure to toxic chemicals is not working and failing us miserably. Its time for us to take action. We need to start reading labels and become informed consumers! According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Top 10 Killer Household Chemicals Study the top 10 most dangerous chemicals in our home: air fresheners, cleaning supplies, dishwasher soap and dish soap. Other danger spots listed: beauty supplies and … Continue reading

Bone Broth- A Powerful Healing Tool

Bone broth, a highly beneficial, nutrient dense superfood has been used since ancient times and is considered to be one of the most remarkable foods on the planet that is made from simmering animal or fish bones. Its a powerful healing tool, often referred to as “the elixir of life.” Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said over 2,000 years ago… “All disease begins in the gut.” Modern day science is finally coming around and confirming this ancient wisdom. Sadly, most people remain unaware of how incredibly beneficial bone broth is and miss out on the opportunity to transform their health and life. When you were sick as a child, did your mom ever make a pot of chicken soup and insist that you eat it, telling you that it would make you feel better? Have you ever wondered why? Homemade bone broth has amazing health benefits and can be … Continue reading

Is Your Laundry Routine Hazardous to YOUR Health

When you think of pollution, you probably think of outdoor pollution, right? You know, the kind that is a by-product of vehicle emissions or industrial manufacturing. The kind that produces a heavy layer of smog in cities that fills the air with toxic fumes and chemicals. When I think of pollution one particular day comes to mind. Back in the 1970’s I went to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, and remember a smog alert being in effect that day. There was a dirty layer of smog hanging in the air. It hung there all day and into the night which turned the brightly lit nighttime sky orange. I kept thinking to myself how much smog there must be in the air for it to do that. It was not a pretty sight. Fortunately, since then the Federal government, along with state and local communities have put laws and policies in place … Continue reading

I Chose the Path Less Followed

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball… something that we weren’t expecting. We rejoice when its something good or exciting and never complain when that happens, right? However… sometimes good things come to us disguised as something bad, or something to be avoided and can take us down a path that we would not have chosen willingly, and many times they can leave us wondering “Why is this happening?” Because of my life experiences, I can now look back on many of these times in my life and give thanks for them because of the positive changes they produced. There certainly is something to be said for hindsight… its just hard to keep all that in mind while in the midst of a storm. One of these “times” happened years ago when my daughter was just shy of her 8th birthday and is responsible for taking me down the path … Continue reading

This also meant that I had the opportunity, no the obligation to share them with … Continue reading

Choosing the Best Carrier Oils for Your Skin Type

  When mixing a carrier oil with essential oils meant for topical use, depending on what you’re using it for, you’ll want to give some thought into choosing the best carrier oils for your skin type for best results and absorption. It’s fun to create our own creams and lotions, and doing so is a wonderful way to individualize them for our own skin type and personal use, or to make gifts for others, while avoiding all the harmful chemicals found in manufactured items. Your skin is like a great big sponge and absorbs EVERYTHING that you put on it, or emmerse yourself in. I love making my own products as it allows me to know exactly what’s going onto, and into my body.

4 Tips When Stuck on STUPID!

Oftentimes we let difficult situations or people get the best of us and then get stuck on stupid. You’re probably asking yourself… what in the world does she mean by that? Well, too often we rehearse in our mind the negativity that we’ve experienced, and replay it over and over again in our mind. It’s like listening to a broken record. For those of you of the younger generation and unfamiliar with this ‘broken record’ term, it refers to a scratch in a vinyl record that would cause the needle [or stylus] to stay in the same groove- annoyingly causing it to repeat itself, over and over again, until one bumped it a little to get it unstuck. We’re all guilty of getting stuck on stupid at one time or another but fortunately, there are a few ways that we can make a conscious decision to “bump” ourselves that can … Continue reading
