Green the holiday season!!

Ahhh the holidays!! This time of year is great for kids, but all of the holiday d├ęcor that comes with it can be laced with lead and other toxic chemicals.  Pay special attention with holiday lights, painted ornaments and nativity characters.

Some lights even have a lead warning on them!! Lead, lead, lead.  Most of these decorations are made out of the country where we don't know exactly what has been used to make them. When children touch them, the chemicals get on their fingers and then the fingers in their mouths.  While we all still decorate, just beware or opt for safer things like wood or felt.  You can even make decorations out of salt dough, felt, twigs, pinecones and branches or anything found in nature.   Once your kids have helped decorate, make sure they wash their hands to remove any toxic chemicals from store bought decor!!!

Paleo Rosemary Flax Bread!


We have been experimenting with the Paleo diet for a few months and really feel great eating this way.  One recipe I created with a little trial and error is a Paleo Rosemary Flax Bread!! Kids love it and it is Candida Diet friendly. 
Rosemary is also thought to protect your body from the effects of EMFs!(electromagnetic frequencies)  The flaxseeds have great benefits of omega 3 essential fatty acids too.  All of the ingredients I used are organic of course!


Paleo Rosemary Flax Bread

1/2 c coconut flour

1/2 c almond flour

¾ tsp baking soda

5 eggs

4 T Rosemary and 1-2 drops Rosemary oil from Young Living

3 T gold flax seed

2 T brown flax seed

2 t Himalayan sea salt

8 T butter(Kerry gold) melted

Mix ingredients, add melted butter . Put in buttered loaf pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Keep spring and summer insects away with outdoor spray!

Spring has sprung and so have the bugs!!!  I am not a fan of creepy crawly things especially if they land on me.  I have been taking the kids outside to play once or twice a day so we see lots of little creatures.  In order to keep them at a distance I have been making an outdoor spray on the top of my head and rubbing on my hands and exposed area.  Just a drop or two is all I seem to need to keep us playing without annoyances.  I do this with the kids as well if we are going to be out where we may be playing in the grass or woods. Last summer it worked so well when we went for our late afternoon or evening swim free of any outdoor issues.

I am so impressed by how well this stuff works!! It is all natural..NO CHEMICALS which are toxic.  Purification is a blend of oils, Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Melaleuca and Myrtle.  It is also good to apply it to owies if you should get attacked.  I also throw a few drops in the washing machine to take out odors.  It has many uses!!

Ammo to boost your health during winter months...Thieves!

We eat really healthy in our home.  We also rarely get sick...maybe a sniffle or a sneeze here or there.  On occasion, a mild fever may pop up.  Besides having a great diet to support our health, we use Thieves products by Young Living.
The story behind Thieves is that a band of thieves applied a blend of special herbs and spices when they were robbing people stricken by the plague.  This special blend kept them healthy. This blend is composed of clove, rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus  and cinnamon bark.  Today we use it in the diffuser or applied to the feet since the feet get to every cell in the body.  I keep our home stocked with all the products for use daily.  It has become our non-toxic way of life!
There is also a hand sanitizer, hand soap, soap, dental floss, mouthwash, toothpaste and spray, wipes and household cleaner to use around the home!
Bringing home germs is not an issue! We recover much quicker from anything that may come our way.
Contact me to learn how you can support your family the way the thieves did without chemicals or synthetic ingredients!!

Gassy Baby....Try Dill Oil!

Before my latest addition was due, I stocked up on all of the essential oils I had read about in Debra Raybern's book, Gentle Babies. One oil in particular was Young Living Dill oil.  She lists it under Colic and describes using it for gassy tummy issues in babies.  The baby can seem irritable and uncomfortable and you are not sure why.  When my son was about 6 weeks he seemed rather upset one evening and gassy.  I immediately thought I would try it and see.  I put a little organic raw coconut oil on his back, then a drop of dill and rubbed in a circular motion.

 I could not believe how quickly he calmed down. I could not pinpoint what it was I ate to upset him.  It happened again a week or so later and the Dill oil worked like a charm.  Anytime he gets fussy or gassy my husband says where is the Dill oil!!!!  He just applied it neat without a carrier oil on his tummy instead of his back one day with no problem.  I have to say the smell is strong but worth it to have a happy baby!!!
