Herbal Ways to Reuse Your Christmas Tree

You’ve had that lovely Christmas tree in your home for the last month or so but now Christmas is over… how sad… now you have to say goodbye to that Christmas tree.

You don’t have to just toss that Christmas tree out just yet! You can actually make quite a few goodies with those pine needles (or fir needles because most Christmas trees seem to be firs and...

DIY Christmas Bath Confetti

I was so excited when I came up with my DIY Herbal Bath Confetti tutorial. I mean it’s the easiest DIY ever and it’s such a fun thing to make!

25 Non-Toy Gift Ideas For Kids

As a person dedicated to living naturally, I try to keep the gifts that we give (and that my kids receive) on the natural side. The holiday season is an easy time for kids to receive oh so many toys, toys that light up and beep and make noise all day long.

Below I will share my gift ideas that are all non-electronic – no beeping or flashing lights here! After checking out my non-toy...

Natural Christmas Playdough

I’ve posted about making natural playdough before. I’ve explained that while playdough probably isn’t as toxic as some commercial products, it is still full of ingredients like petroleum and artificial fragrances. These ingredients are the reason why I choose to make my own playdough. However there are also a few other reasons why homemade playdough is so great; you can customize it to your heart’s content. Any color any shade you can dream of, you can make! We’ve had lots of fun with our natural playdough and since we are currently in the Christmas season, I decided to make...

Some of those things are good add ins, some are not so healthy, and some just turn that smoothie into a milkshake instead! I  like to keep my smoothies relatively simple. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that I love all things gingerbread. I’ve...
