We LOVE our diffusers in this house, and we especially love to fill them with the scents of the holidays. My kiddos love to make diffuser necklaces and ornaments….so these salt dough diffuser decorations were a BIG hit! Plus, we turned some of them into necklaces and gave them as teacher gifts!

Have you checked the label on your toothpaste lately? Sure, they advertise that it will fight germs for up to 12 hours, helping to fight plaque and tartar and prevent gingivitis, while also whitening your teeth and giving you minty fresh breath. But, there is something they are NOT telling you about that pretty blue and white swirl on your toothbrush. [Read more…]

So, I tried it for myself, starting with plain old coconut oil. Meh, seemed okay. I decided to add in some essential oils…Yowza, now we’re talking. I have tried oil pulling with several different essential oils, but the one I keep going back to is Thieves. Then I decided to make them into oil pulling chews to make things even easier and more fun! [Read more…]
Commercial oven cleaners are some of the most toxic products on the market, and if you’ve ever used one, you can understand why I now only use non-toxic oven cleaner. The chemicals in the commercial stuff stings your eyes, makes it hard to breath and can even burn your skin if you happen to get some of it on you.th [Read more…]
Got feet? Got kids? Got a husband or partner who is active in sports? Well then you KNOW what stinky shoes can be! Of course we have all had our experience with stinky shoes, but after I got married and had kids it became an entire new level of stinky shoe in my house! [Read more…]
