I love perfume, it’s one of my favorite indulgences. However, there can be many harmful ingredients hidden in our favorite bottles of fragrance. With the popularity of natural fragrances on the rise, I thought it was time to start investigating an all-natural alternative…. [read more]
I’m getting so tired and fed up with this cold weather and all I want is to be whisked away to somewhere nice and hot. I’m dreaming of leaving these wet and snowy days in the past. I’m the kind of gal that loves it hot and enjoys everything summer. So I’ve finally found a way to get that little bit of summer in the middle of winter.
One of my favorite things to do is draw a nice, hot, steamy bath and soak until all my cares have vanished and with the help of SoftSoap Earths Blend, I can do just that! Getting clean has never smelled so good. The new Earth Blends smell AMAZING! There are three different scents to the Earths Blend line: Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber, Pomegranate & Plum, Coconut & Fig. My favorite is the Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber. It’s the perfect mix of scents and leaves you feeling super clean…. [read more]
2017 was a big year of transition for our family! I finished school and started work in the field of my certification. This meant leaving work in the legal field and transitioning into public education. It’s been a change that I was nervous about at first, but I’m so happy I did it. I love being a teacher and working for our local school district. It’s been a real adventure to work with such incredible kids! Nothing is more difficult, but so rewarding!… [read more]
I love going to the spa especially in the winter months! It seems not only that the weather takes a toll on my skin, it also takes a toll on my mood! Every time I go into a spa the first thing I normally notice is the smell as soon as I walk in. It is always so calming and soothing and takes me away from my everyday stresses immediately.
Since our recent move, I’ve been doing my best to rebuild our aromatherapy supplies. I like to keep an oil diffuser in each room we spend time in. Living healthy with aromatherapy is possible! I keep one going just to keep our air clean and fresh. I also like to use essential oils to keep my son from getting sick or reduce his symptoms. He does not take medicine, so I rely on aromatherapy.
What makes aromatherapy so amazing is that it is natural, effective, and so easy to use.
As a mom, it is important to keep my son healthy so he can attend school. In years past, he has missed so much school from getting sick! I also do my best to stay healthy. If I am sick, I am unable to care for my son. With his Autism, I choose aromatherapy. How are you staying healthy?
I prefer using natural ways to staying healthy in our home. Have you ever tried using an oil diffuser?
I believe that when we take care of our bodies, we are repaid with a better quality of life. That’s why it is crucial to use and consume products that are natural, organic, and wholesome…. [read more]
With winter weather right around the corner, it makes me think of ways that we can stay cozy and warm as the cold settles in for a stay. When it’s nasty outside, some people can also find themselves falling into what I call the “winter funk.” This is when you feel confined, your mood can sometimes be depressed, and it is hard to find the motivation to do things and find joy in life.
When the weather turns cold and nasty and the days start to get shorter I love nothing better than curling up on the couch under a warm afghan, sometimes with the fireplace glowing and emanating warmth throughout the main area of the house. I have a variety of personal pleasures that I like to engage in to occupy my mind and provide entertainment and contentment when it’s not nice enough to be outdoors.
There are many ways to stay warm, but here are a few of my faves…. [read more]
The benefits of essential oils are incredible! They are seriously worth looking into if you suffer from ailments such as asthma, headaches, muscle fatigue, and sinus pressure. If you’re just looking to enhance your overall well-being, essential oils are great for that too! Oils can be a great mood-booster, especially in the dull and bleak months of winter…. [read more]
There are many ways to soothe one’s soul, to feed a need inside (identified or not) to promote personal wellness, relaxation, exhilaration, peace … whatever it is that you need to make you feel complete. I have many ways to feed my soul — writing, reading, crochet, cooking and baking, among others.
The one thing that I have yet to explore in any great depth is scent when it comes to personal wellness. I dabble a bit, and by that I mean with candles and room sprays, mostly. Diffusers and essential oils are a new world for me but I’m learning a lot from Gurunanda®, artnaturals, and EO® Products about how to use them in everyday life. If you’re interested in this topic but as clueless as I am, let’s take a look at it together and see what it’s all about…. [read more]
