Making Expired Breast Milk Lotion (Revised)

A year ago I posted a very exciting and popular article that detailed how to make expired breast milk lotion. I received several inquiries on separation issues. Since I'm such a nice person, I wanted to fix this for my mama friends. I want those of you making this recipe to enjoy it fully with as little issues as possible. I did more research and I've revised my recipe to account for some issues. Breast milk is a great resource for healing skin ailments. Paired with shea butter, coconut oil, and honey this concoction is sure to leave your skin feeling healthy and new. This lotion is great for eczema, rashes, and dry skin. In my … [Read more...]

This Year Make Your Smile Brilliant! {Review}

It's amazing how humbling it is when you take a good look at your teeth. Growing up my mom never put too much emphasis on dental hygiene, but rather left it up to us to take care of our teeth using her own experiences as an example. It must have worked because I never had a cavity in my childhood. It wasn't until I had my wisdom teeth removed that I even saw my first cavity. Now that I'm an adult I take brushing my teeth very seriously. I think most of us can agree that white teeth are attractive. Sometimes a good looking smile can be the cherry on top to looking and feeling good. When I was given the opportunity to work with Smile … [Read more...]

Hand Foot Mouth: Natural Cures and Remedies

Where have I been, you say? Oh, just dealing with normal holiday hustle, work, and... DUN DUN DUN! Our home has been struck with the nasty hand, foot, mouth disease. Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a viral infection that starts with a fever, then turns into a rash. The effects vary, but it's generally a children's illness. Though when the adults get it it can be either really mild or really terrible. I got the former; My husband the later. Poor guy. My son got a mild fever a few days before Christmas. When he broke out in the iconic rash we knew what it was. The fever broken and he was pretty much fine afterwards. Hand, foot, mouth … [Read more...]

Soothie Suckers: the Cool Way to Feel Good!

It's in the air: illness. We love the cold weather, but there's just no escaping the fact that a change in temperature brings on the sniffles. I, personally, have an awesome immune system. My husband and kids, on the other hand, do not. I tend to be overly protective of my household because of this, though I am not necessarily a germaphbe. Instead I try to focus on building immunities and preventative care. A new super cool way we do this is by treating the kids to Soothie Suckers. Soothie Suckers are herbal blend ice pops that support the immune system and add balance to the inner workings of our bodies. I was given a box of each flavor … [Read more...]

All-Natural Immune Boosting Elderberry Infused Soda {Say That 5 Times Fast}

So my fiance and I did a soda-free September as a part of Operation: Get Sexy. We cheated towards the end, but I do not plan to ever make soda as much of a part of my life like I did before. I wasn't sure if I could do it, but I did! And I have a secret to share to help those of you who might be struggling as you try to cut out those carbonated sugar syrups from your diet as well. Herbal soda. Yes, you heard me. Herbal infused sodas are my new thing. I just make a little herbal tea, add raw sugar, a bit of honey and BAM! I have a great alternative to those nasty, hater drinks that cost way too much. To make your own soda you'll need the … [Read more...]

Soda-Free September

My fiance and I are getting married in November. That's pretty crazy in itself. I mean after all this talk WE ARE FINALLY DOING IT! I've already sent invites and annoyed my father with all of the details 100 times. I'm getting ready to make the final payments on everything. It's getting real! We're in the 6 week window... We started way too late to get sexy for the wedding, but we've decided together to get healthy. We need to lose weight. Both of us. As a stepping stone we've decided to stop eating fast food and drinking soda. In reality that just means I live in the kitchen now, but lucky for us I like cooking (when I don't have a children … [Read more...]

Simplifying No Poo with Mirasol Farm

Guys, I have a confession: I was sick of the natural beauty routine that made my hair feel both dry and waxy at different intervals between showers. I could tweak forever and play with different methods, but I just want to live an easy life free of chemicals in which my hair still looks fabulous. In a moment of desperation I reached out to Mirasol Farm and begged them to send me more of their fabulous herbal shampoo bar. It seriously does wonders. The herbal shampoo bar from Mirasol Farm is top notch. No matter where I've bathed, no matter the water source... My hair always comes out looking and feeling fabulous. It's important for me to … [Read more...]

Adding Fun to Our Bathtime Routine with Daddy & Company

This three-day weekend was a real doozy for us. The heat down in Florida makes living in the outside world hard, even for us natives! It's a guarentee that if we do decide to venture out into the world everyone is going to come home slightly frustrated and hella stinky. The only cure is a cool shower and a nap. The kids love bubble baths, but as we get more conscious of our choices in the home bath time has suffered a little. I can't tell you how long it's been since I gave up looking for a reliable bubble bath that was long-lasting, smelled good, and also non-toxic for my little one. I thought that bubble baths were just out for us. With … [Read more...]

All health related suggestions and opinions expressed in this post are all my own. #HealthcareClinic #CollectiveBias So I just got home from my Spring Break road trip thing.

We arrived in Northern Kentucky with beautiful 60 degree weather, but before long it was below freezing and snowing. It warmed up again before we left. By that … [Read more...]
