It didn’t surprise me at all when I recently read that the most effective cough syrup could not be bought in your nearest drugstore. Rather, it’s the simple yet extremely effective tonic of lemon and honey that has always been a staple in my house during times of illness. Even as a married woman, the [...]

I was reading up on the liver today and some of the foods that are excellent for liver health/detoxification. I’m happy to say that one of my ultimate favorites are on the list – artichokes!

I was in the market for a new conditioner and this Renpure Organics was talking pure, organic, green tea, chamomile, soy protein and that was all before I even got to the ingredients list. I also somewhat enjoyed [...]
Gaiam’s Cork Bath Mat is naturally anti-fungal, nonslip, and dries quickly. What more can you ask for from a bath mat? Maybe that it feels nice when you’re standing on it…I won’t make any judgments about that until those are my 2 (much girlier) feet!
For a while, I didn’t have jojoba oil on hand and I really missed it! It’s definitely my favorite oil when it comes to natural beauty.
