Menstrual Cramp Relief Salve

That time of the month… ladies we all know what I’m talking about. Nobody likes it but it’s something we all have to deal with. At the best, it’s an inconvenience. Aunt Flo never arrives when we’d like. You might end up with lovely PMS mood swings, bloating, and so on. At worse, you can end up with menstrual cramps so bad that you are not leaving the house… make that your bed! The all too common approach to dealing with menstrual cramps is popping painkillers all day long. Other women even get on birth control just for easier...

Kid Friendly Creamsicle Toothpaste

Leave it to kids to quickly get bored with anything and everything. Even toothpaste flavors. I had been making my kid friendly strawberry toothpaste and the kids loved it… and then one day, they were done with it. “Can we have a new flavor?” “I don’t like strawberry today.” Sigh… kids these days! Or maybe my kids are just spoiled when it comes to toothpaste flavors. Kids who use conventional toothpaste probably do not get too many options. My kids, oh they are smart… they know that mommy can make lots of different toothpastes! Wait, you make your own...

This habit continues to be so important that it’s something that we teach our children to do so that they can continue having great teeth. Toothpaste is something every person needs. Adults and kids alike use toothpaste but it’s rare that children like the minty toothpaste that their parents use. Since kids sometimes...

Lavender Diaper Cream

No matter how hard you try, your baby will likely end up with a diaper rash. This of course is the reason why there are dozens upon dozens of diaper creams to buy at the store. Unfortunately, many commercial diaper creams have not so nice ingredients in them such as BHA, fragrance, methylparaben, and boric acid. There are usually many other ingrendits in diaper creams but just these four have been linked to small things like allergies (not that allergies are a small deal!) to cellular changes! In attempt to avoid the toxic ingredients, many parents choose to buy...

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...

Strengthening Nettle Vinegar Hair Rinse

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… my hair is weak. My hair has decided it would like to fall out in amounts more than I’d like to see and my part in my hair is getting wider. Why? Well I’m contributing it to hormones. At first it was post-nursing hormones. Did you even know that was a thing? I had no clue about post-weaning hair loss until it started happening to me. Then I got pregnant again and my hair was happy and growing again. Now that my baby is here and I’m months into...
