Spring Cleaning the Natural Way!

Are you thinking about spring cleaning?  It’s that time of year again!  The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and it’s warm enough out to open your windows and let some fresh air in!  Maybe you’ve begun taking out your sponges, spray bottles, face masks and rubber gloves to get going with the scrubbing.  You may be looking into a spring cleaning detox or cleansing program, and, hopefully, you’re tossing out your more-than-six-months old personal care products.  Remember:  when you’re spring[Read more]

Lemon Essential Oil

I swear I go through a bottle of Lemon essential oil every month!  I use it for absolutely everything – from green cleaning and cooking, to flavoring my drinking water and purifying my laundry or odors throughout the house (or in my case, throughout the RV that I travel full-time in with my husband, dog, and cat).  Our Lemon essential oil comes from the rind of lemons that are grown on small family farms in Italy.  I absolutely L.O.V.E. the[Read more]

Clean Living

It’s time to start thinking about where you can reduce exposure to toxins in your life.  I’m not just talking about chemicals in your household cleaning products.  I’m also referring to negative, toxic thought patterns, AND toxic things you may be putting on your skin. We live in an increasingly stressful society filled with constant negative influences.  Over the years I have incorporated ways to get rid of negative thinking.  I realized that all those toxic thoughts were taking up[Read more]
