I feel like a rock star if I’m able to find time to get a shower every day—but that doesn’t always mean I have time to wash my hair. So for the past few years, I’ve been spending anywhere between 15-40 dollars on dry shampoo.

I’m very picky about strong scents so if I try out a new brand, it’s not guaranteed that I’ll like the smell.

So, there I am with an overpriced bottle of dry shampoo that I don’t like, but I have to use up.

Luckily, I’ve found a solution. Read More

Ooooh! Bubble bath! I haven’t taken a bath in ages but when I came across this simple recipe, I had to try it out. This bubble bath is moisturizing and smells delicious. My skin was so smooth and my husband went crazy over the smell. RAWR! This would be a really nice and easy DIY gift for a birthday or a housewarming party. I know that I could have used this when we recently moved…I would have enjoyed some silky smooth bubble bath and a nice, relaxing soak in the tub.

Ingredients:
1 cup sweet almond oil or light olive oil
1/2 cup organic honey Read More

DIY Antiseptic Ointment

This is a great DIY ointment for cuts and scrapes. It’s natural and you know what’s going in it. In other words, you can actually pronounce the ingredients. Yay for that! I also use candelilla wax, so it’s vegan friendly.

Lemon is antibacterial and has antiviral properties. Tea tree oil acts as an antibiotic and chamomile is anti-inflammatory. I made a batch with small metal containers and put them in reusable snack bags, along with a few cotton swabs, and bandages. I keep one in my purse and one in my husband’s backpack.

This ointment is a great alternative to what you could buy in a store. Enjoy! Read More

Here’s a very simple, do it yourself fruit and veggie wash. This is a natural and non-toxic spray that has grapefruit seed extract, which is a must to have on hand when living a more earth-friendly lifestyle. Grapefruit seed extract has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and even anti-viral properties.

It’s a recent discovery for me since I’m learning to live more naturally. I’ve found it has many uses and look forward to sharing more eco-friendly products with this “miracle” in a bottle. Read More
