• DIY Natural All Purpose Cleaner Spray - Simple to Make and Works Well!

    Natural Multi-Purpose Cleaning Spray – Great for Toilets!

    I started looking for natural beauty and cleaner recipes a few years ago, I found a few good ingredients and recipes that I liked and that’s where I stopped. I always meant to find more recipes for other cleaners I wanted to replace but I never got around to it. Until this weekend. I was going to clean our bathrooms only to find that we were out of toilet bowl cleaner. The last toilet bowl cleaner I bought had been “natural” (I didn’t look at the ingredients so I can’t attest to how natural it really was) and it barely worked. Honestly, I don’t think it worked, it was my…

  • Simply Earth Essential Oil Subscription Box Review!

    Simply Earth Essential Oil Subscription Box

    I’ve been dabbling in the essential oil world for a few years now. After trying a few different companies I’m still not completely brand loyal. I have a few companies that I order from regularly. In my initial foray into essential oils I tried out a number of companies right off the bat and wrote a post about the pros and cons of each essential oil company, I plan on writing an updated post soon with some more companies and thoughts added but it’s still a pretty accurate post. The one thing I have not done is order oils from some of the more expensive companies. I prefer to not…

  • Calming Essential Oil Roller Bottle Blend - great for mom and kids!

    Calming Essential Oil Roller Bottle Blend

    I love experimenting with new essential oil blends. This particular blend I made quite awhile ago and has had a lot of use in our house, can you see how empty the bottle is in the photo? That’s my proof. I wouldn’t describe myself as a naturally calm person. I’m a highly sensitive person, raising a highly sensitive and emotional child, that doesn’t result in a lot of calm in our house. I always joke that my daughter and I would make good TV if we were on the Amazing Race, the pressure would completely break us. It wouldn’t be pretty but I’m sure it would make “good TV”. So,…

  • DIY Natural Lotion - simple to make

    DIY Moisturizing Natural Lotion

    This winter is like every other Saskatchewan winter – cold and dry. We have spells of -40 weather and the furnace is running constantly, sucking all potential moisture out of our home and leaving our skin dry and itchy. It doesn’t help that we have a problem with dry skin to begin, Raeca has a long struggle with dry skin and eczema and Ephraim’s beautiful African skin needs a lot of moisturizing. So, I’ve been experimenting with some different lotions and have come up with one that we love! I originally intended to make a body butter but it turned out more lotion-y and that ended up being a pleasant…

  • The Best Headache Essential Oil Blend - perfect for roller bottles

    The Miracle Essential Oil Blend – Great for Headaches!

    I got my first essential oils three years ago. I was a total skeptic but my theory was “it doesn’t hurt to try!” Now, three years later I think I can finally put myself in the fully convinced category. Let me start off by saying that I’m not loyal to one oil company. I’ve had three companies that I’ve purchased from since the beginning and I still like all of their oils.     I purchased some roller bottles awhile ago and have been creating my own blends and wanted to share a few of them here over the next while. If you are looking to buy some roller bottles I’d…


    Saje Wellness – Pocket Pharmacy Review

    Like all my essential oil posts, I’m not getting paid or compensated to talk about certain oils or companies, I’m just as girl who started out a little skeptical about essential oils and thought I’d share my journey for any others out there that may feel the same way. You can read my previous posts about essential oils here. Two weeks ago I went to a seminar at Saje given by the co-founder of the company, Jean-Pierre. It was a very informative seminar, not because he really told us anything about essential oils that I hadn’t already heard or known but I found it so very interesting to hear his personal…
