DIY Mouthwash

Last pregnancy I went to the dentist and my very friendly hygienist informed me that I had pregnancy gingivitis. I was completely horrified but thankfully it cleared up soon after giving birth. However the bleeding, swollen and tender gums were a huge pain during pregnancy.

Premium Starter Kit Giveaway!

And the winner is Rachel J. with the email address rachel.jacobs04 at email.com

I had been curious about essential oils for a long time and I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. After looking into I decided to get started by purchasing the premium starter kit from Young Living.  The reason I trust Young Living oils is because they offers this promise – they own their farms and they run a very tight supply chain. I trust their essential oils above all others because they are pure and unadulterated and are manufactured for therapeutic use not just for smell. Overseeing every single step of the production process, from “Seed to Seal,” Young Living sets the industry standard for purity, authenticity, and potency in their oils.

10 Must Have Baby Items for the Natural Mama

I remember being a first time Mom and having absolutely NO CLUE what I was going to need for those first few months of parenting. I asked some friends and got lots of different opinions depending on the parenting style. And then I got myself even more confused by taking a tour of the local baby store where they had every baby gizmo and gadget imaginable for a newborn. Swings, bouncers, bumbos, fancy tubs, bassinets, activity mats…my head was literally SPINNING.  My husband  did our best to get just the basics and knew that if we NEEDED something the baby store was just around the corner from our house. If you are a natural mama like myself and want to be prepared for baby here are all the items we USED and LOVED during those first few months of parenthood.  Read more…
