Chronic Pain and Honesty with My Children

My chronic pain and honesty with my children.

So, I've been dealing with minor chronic pain and fatigue for years. Going on the GAPS diet taught me so much about autoimmune conditions, and really listening to how my body feels... I now realize autoimmunity (at least partly) stems from having a compromised gut. I'm also not alone. More than 100 million Americans struggle with some sort of chronic pain and/or fatigue. Do you?? Another contributing factor is the fact that my back has mild curvature. Chronic back pain in addition to … [Read More...]

Homemade Herbal Shampoo

Homemade herbal no-poo shampoo recipe

Hey there friends! How are you all today? I just have to tell you about my newest creation - a homemade herbal shampoo that I absolutely love. I quit commercial hair products back in September of 2014 and I've really worked hard, and had a lot of fun (and frustration, lol) getting my hair to where I love it, and this shampoo emerged in the process. Who on earth would be weird enough to make their own shampoo? [raises hand] Me. If you're weird like this too, then you might think about … [Read More...]

Homemade Heat Protectant with free printables!

This is the easiest way to make your own heat protectant! All natural.

Sometimes a girl just needs a little heat. On her hair. Even if she stopped using commercial shampoo. Even if she wrote a post entitled, "10 Methods for No Heat Curls". It's always nice to have the option, you know? So, I haven't really been using heat on my hair for the last eight months or so, except for the occasional light touch with the blow dryer. I used to use high heat from the blow dryer and the highest setting on my straightening iron, every time I styled my hair, which was … [Read More...]

Pineapple Vinegar

How to make homemade pineapple vinegar from your leftover pineapple rind!

Are you a fan of home fermentation like I am? I want to share with you today a simple technique for making your own vinegar. Not just any old vinegar - pineapple vinegar! The great part about this is that you're putting to use the leftover rind and core from when you slice a pineapple for serving. Make sure you save those leftovers, so you can turn them into a new, homemade, FREE byproduct. (I mean, you were just going to throw them away, right?) So if you don't feel like composting them, … [Read More...]

Morning Detox Drink Roundup

Awesome collection of morning detox drinks!

So I love coffee. Really, I do - I promise. But I've found something lately that has kind of taken up the spot of Favorite Morning Drink. It tastes nothing like coffee! It is warm, but not quite in the same way. But after drinking this morning detox drink for the last few months, I have found it gives me energy and the ingredients help to naturally cleanse my body - and I am addicted. Probably not quite as much as coffee, my love for coffee is the stuff sonnets are made of. ;) But it's my … [Read More...]
