Apple Pie Smoothie

I’ve been wanting to try this apple pie smoothie for some time now but it wasn’t until this week that I took the plunge. The weather shifted to hinting of fall and suddenly I was ready for all things autumn! The great thing about this smoothie is that while it has obvious “dreaming of fall” flavor it is still a nice cool drink on a warm “still summer” day. So even if you are in the hotter regions and fall seems a long ways away, you can whip up this smoothie and imagine it’s a crisp fall day. Much...

Elderberry Syrup Plus

anElderberry syrup is the one natural remedy and immunity booster that is an absolutely must-have in my home (now we are upgrading to elderberry syrup plus but first let me explain about elderberry syrup.)  Elderberry Syrup works amazingly well. In fact, it works better than even the flu vaccine when it comes to preventing the flu because elderberry syrup protects against ten strains of the flu whereas the vaccine only focuses on a few. What’s more, elderberry syrup also helps you recover if you do get the flu or even a cold! There aren’t many medicines out there that can prevent...

Chai Spice Sugar Scrub

I remember my family getting those tetra packs of chai drinks and thinking they were crazy. I had no desire to drink that stuff. As I grew older, I remember trying a chai at a coffee shop and I was not impressed. In recent years, I’ve tried out chai tea, just the chai spice and tea steeped in water. I love that stuff!

Honey Apple Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal cookies. It’s a bit of an odd thing, considering I really do not like oatmeal! Oatmeal cookies, warm and fresh out of the oven will always be a welcomed treat for me! Honey Apple Oatmeal Cookies are a nice, healthy variation of oatmeal cookies. Warm apple, soothing honey, and comforting oatmeal makes these cookies a perfect treat for fall… or any time of the year! Cookies are generally not the healthiest thing on the block. When you are making the switch to natural living and healthy eating, well let’s just say cookies are generally frowned upon....

Rosehip Oil – The Anti-Aging Oil

Recently I’ve shared how I discovered rosehip oil and I was even daring enough to post a no-makeup selfie of me to prove just how amazing this oil is. Coconut oil often gets praised for all of it’s amazing benefits but if you ask me, coconut oil might just have to step aside when it comes to the best skincare oil! What is Rosehip Oil? If you are like me then you probably have never heard of rosehips! Apparently roses have hips… well sort of. Rosehips are the fruit of rose bushes. That’s right, roses have fruit! Who knew?...
