D.I.Y Essential oil Clay bead Key chain and lanyard

D.I.Y Essential oil Clay bead Key chain and lanyard

Looking for a super simple little gift idea? Then what about making some Essential Oil Clay Bead Keychains?? I was lucky to have some ready made natural clay beads on hand.... they are raw and rough and absorb a couple of drops of Essential Oil so beautifully. You can create your own Salt dough beads.....I came across a number of recipes online...but the basic recipe is simple - Universal Salt Dough Equal Parts Flour and Salt 1/2 part warm water Mix all the ingredients - knead. The Salt…

Simply Loving These #11

Here we go again with another 'Simply Loving These' post..... a little round up of things that grab my interest online and out in the world. 1. When I first jumped into my life of Essential Oils I was fully focused on all the ways to reduce the toxic load in our home with natural options. Over time I became aware of the emotional benefits I was experiencing and I am loving exploring that further. I recently added Rose to my collection...and have been learning more about its amazing…

SIMPLE bathroom - Healthy Home Series

The bathroom is a great place to make some simple switches to healthier options. My favourite is the body wash.... its ridiculously easy to make and I can change the Essential Oils around from time to time to enjoy a new aroma. During summer we had a minty fresh batch.... but as we go into some cooler weather I really enjoy the geranium added. Plus... its so kind and gentle on the skin... it leaves it feeling hydrated and soft. Foaming Body Wash- Make in a 200ml Foaming bottle 1 Tablespoon…

Travelling with Essential Oils.... .... what to take

Travelling with Essential Oils.... .... what to take

When Oils enter your life.... there is no way you can travel without them.... they are life savers...and I am so grateful for them. In May / June this year we took a trip to Canada / Alaska which was amazing.... and of course I selected some oils to come along with us ... the photo below shows my diffuser in our Chalet room at Denali National Park. So what ...how and why ? So this is what I took.... (actually I didn't take the Correct X or TerraArmour.... but I would if I packed again) I…

5 WAYS TO LIVE A LOWER TOX LIFE

5 WAYS TO LIVE A LOWER TOX LIFE

Have you noticed the 'feeling in the air' over the last year or so..... its like people are waking up and wanting to do better. I think we are all tired of being brainwashed by advertising ... and frustrated that we cant just trust our products are safe. I know I am. Making the switch to safer options seems so simple to many of us.... but in the conversations I have each week I realise that we are all jumping on the 'low tox' train at different stations.... and for some its just so hard to…

LEMON Recipes -  for when your tree is loaded.

LEMON Recipes - for when your tree is loaded.

Every year it happens.... our tree bears a prolific crop and I'm searching for ideas on how to use them. Not bad for tree that we almost pulled out of the ground in its second year when we noticed it had grown from under the graft. But I saved its life because I liked the foliage ... I convinced Ian to keep it.... and its been abundant every year since. Here are a few recipes I found on my search..... Lemon Butter Cake - by Seasons and Suppers. (I first saw this on Instagram when Charlotte…

Healthy Home Series - Introduction and Resources

Healthy Home Series - Introduction and Resources

Welcome to the first post in my Healthy Home Series... If you have been following for awhile you will know I am pretty passionate about 'Low Tox-ing' our home (and life) . Over the last year I have been sharing this love and hopefully inspiring others to get started on their lower tox pathway as well. I was pretty carefree as child and young adult.. I felt bulletproof.... despite having chronic eczema requiring years of steroid treatment and desensitisation for a host of allergies. Fast…

SIMPLE kitchen - Healthy Home Series

SIMPLE kitchen - Healthy Home Series

Today I want to talk about the products we use in the Kitchen. These are pretty important considering how often they come in contact with our food... crockery and utensils. Keep in mind that what we out into our mouths all ends up in our body. We would never spray our food with a cleaning liquid... and yet when our food touches surfaces that have been sprayed with a chemical...its virtually the equivalent. I would much prefer to use products that are safe... and food grade... lets keep our…

Simple laundry - Healthy Home Series

Lets talk about the Laundry. Those with sensitive skin may have already made some switches in this department....I know I had. Skin reactions to fragranced detergents and softeners are very common and yet for some reason the manufacturers still think we need our wash to smell like sea breeze or orchard fresh. Washing Powder - 1 Cup Baking Soda 1 Cup Washing Soda 1 x 5oz bar of Castile Soap (I used Dr Bronners) 1 Cup Kosher Salt 30 drops Essential Oil of choice - I used Lemon Myrtle. Grate…

doTERRA - Simple changes

doTERRA - Simple changes

Here is another reason I'm in love with my doTERRA oils! The endless opportunities to simplify my personal care products with natural...'no nasties'... essential oils based DIY alternatives. I've had a lifetime of sensitivities to everything known to man.... my search for products has come at huge expense over the years and I have a mountain of barely used products to prove it. So I tread carefully and slowly when it comes to changing anything in my routine. Last week I grew tired of adding…

Essential oil infused playdough

Essential oil infused playdough

If you happen to be looking for an easy... (and delicious smelling) ...weekend activity? Then how about whipping up some playdough.....then adding a few drops of essential oils to each colour. Oh and a packet of 'plastic eyes' makes for extra fun... the littlest Mr..particularly loved them as you will see.) (I used a Thermomix Playdough recipe by Thermo Bliss...and it was super easy) I used Peppermint and Wild Orange in ours.... and it was delish! Have a great weekend...

DIY Hair Care - doterra

I decided I’m going to try this thing called ‘styling’ ... me.. with my thin fine hair who has never owned a hair styling product in my life. 😜 Its true.... I’ve never been one for product... I don’t like chemicals and I always feel that spraying them on my head doesn’t sit well with me. So this will be an interesting experiment. I have made my own DIY HAIRSPRAY.... It was so simple.... 1 cup of water 4 teaspoons sugar In a saucepan bring to the boil until sugar dissolves and then cool. In…
