Detox Foot Soak

This has been a life changer for me. I have been suffering with shoulder pain for 4 years. I can’t lift anything or I can’t move the next day. Folding clothes became a problem. My shoulder was so inflamed I could only lift my arm to almost shoulder height, reaching over my head was impossible. […]


Homemade (breadmaker) Bread

Love homemade bread   January 2016, I made a New Year’s resolution to take all processed food out of our house. I made a menu, a list of ingredients and appliances I needed and headed off to Costco, Fry’s and Shar’s. I seriously spent the whole four day holiday weekend either at the store or […]


Hair Care Part 1 – No Poo Shampoo

Hair Care – Shampoo and Conditioner   I have tried using less toxic beauty products for 15 years. Tried…I never loved any of the options I found. Never loved the discount store options or the pricey salon options either. My cycle is this…find something new, use it until its gone, replace once…maybe. Usually midway through […]


Laundry detergent for sensitive skin

Laundry – All Free & Clear   One of the first steps I took…years and years ago…was switch to smell free laundry detergent. I have a mother-in-law that can’t be around any smells. I’m talking shampoo, conditioner, hair product, deodorant, perfume,  candles,  etc… Although I switched to make it easier when visiting her, I found […]

National Park #2 – Casa Grande Ruins

Drove about an hour and a half to the next closest national park, Casa Grande Ruins We stamped our passport book for the […]


Paraben Free Face Cleaner

Sebamed face wash and face cream   I have used Mary Kay Timewise set for washing my face for years.  I wasn’t perfectly happy with this product but I was content to keep using it. The biggest issue I had is that although Mary Kay makes great products I don’t believe they focus on if […]


No – Poo – Not for me

Haircare Part 2   After trying No Poo Shampoo for a week, 3 washings.  I would like to follow up, that I did not like how my hair felt. I understand that it takes 6 weeks to adjust to the No Poo Shampoo system. I guess I’m not patient enough. I came across a blog […]


Non-Toxic Foaming Hand Soap

Clean Hand Soap   I used to love the Bath and Body Works Foaming hand soap but I did not love the price. I learned about Doterra in 2011. Essential Oils are amazing. I do not promote ditching modern medicine. I suggest trying the oils first, as a first line of defense. If the oil […]
