Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that you are actually ingesting whatever lip balm you put on your lips? That could actually be pretty disturbing, depending upon what you’re using. My recipe is safe enough to eat (though I don’t recommend taking a bite).  And it’s not only easy to make, it’s also… Read more »

One of the things I love about using Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils is that I trust their purity so much I’ll even use them in recipes we can “eat.” My girls and I had fun this morning whipping up a batch of Sweet Breath Sprays for gift giving! Aren’t these bottles adorable??? The… Read more »

You may also choose to use it as a room or bathroom freshener. I spray the guest towels in the bathroom and it lightly scents the… Read more »

All my life, I had hair that was on the verge of being oily. I had to wash my hair everyday, or it would look greasy and flat. Then I hit 40. Actually, I moved up north from the Gulf Coast and hit 40 simultaneously. Literally, our first Sunday at our church here in the… Read more »

Not sure if I should be more disturbed by the synthetic chemicals I was putting on my lips all those years, or the damaging marketing message Maybelline fed me during my teen years.
