Adding Essential Oils to Homemade Cleaning Products

essential oils for cleaning

I love to make my own cleaning products.  The only thing is, they often don't have any real scent to them....that's one thing I miss about purchasing cleaners.  Or one thing I did miss, until a friend told me about adding essential oils to my cleaning products. My go-to All Purpose Cleaner (APC)  is really easy ...

Johnson’s Natural Baby Care

johnsons natural

Living more naturally is something that so many of us, myself included, are trying to do. I have to confess that before I had children, I wasn't really concerned about what I put into my body or onto my body. Motherhood changed that.  In so many ways.  Where before I loved the smell of chlorine ...

Beam Central Vaccuum Systems

Saving money on organic products

organic shampoo

With all of the chemicals and additives that are in abundance in everything, seemingly everywhere we turn, it can get overwhelming to try to find products that perform well, are effective in use, and are also safe to use.  There are sites out there to help us navigate, but I've found these are murky waters ...

I have a lot of water bottles in my house. So many, in fact, I may have been asked to not get any more. I did manage to sneak just one more in- but in my defense- it's pink...and I don't have a pink water bottle for me. So it was a ...

Taking a moment to reflect and be thankful #crystalrollon #cbias

20111125_354

With the holidays here, I think it is important to take a moment and reflect upon what we're thankful for- not just on Thanksgiving, but always.  For me, I am beyond thankful for my family, my friends, my health and theirs, and so much more.  We have been working hard with our children to focus ...

Candlewarmers.com (Giveaway)

aurora candle warmer lamp

I love scented candles.  What I'm not a fan of is having to remember to extinguish flames, nor of the residue left on my walls and in the air from burning candles.  I love having fun scents to fit my mood, the season, or the holiday, and I love when I walk into a room and ...
