Since I’ve started DIY-ing more of my own personal care products, like my face care, hair care and dry skin relief cream, I figured lip balm should be next on my list to try to make on my own! A lot of lip balm recipes are a combination of coconut oil and shea butter. Many […]

Paper towels. Love them and hate them. They are so awesome in those moments when you need to grab something quickly to wipe, especially if it’s super greasy or gross and you don’t want to have to deal with trying to wash it out of a cloth. But they ARE wasteful. Even if I do […]
I jumped on the essential oils bandwagon a while ago and soon realized that I needed a way to carry some with me when I’m away from home. I wanted something relatively small that would be attached to my wallet because I don’t use the same bag all the time (depending on whether I’m going out […]
If you’ve read my Green Your Cleaning post, you know that it can be very simple to make your own natural cleaners and avoid the toxins commonly found in conventional cleaners. Today I have a guest post by Anna Aamone focusing specifically on DIY natural wood cleaners. Here’s what she has to say!

It’s official. I’m entering the world of DIY beauty. It’s a world I have avoided for some time, thinking – I don’t have time to make my own beauty and body care products. That’s why I buy them. Someone else has taken the time to do it, and to figure out what works. But NOW […]
I was really excited about the possibility of DIY-ing my own foaming hand soap with essential oils. However, I wanted to make sure that I was using glass containers for it, just to be safe – as essential oils can break down plastic and leach from it. What cheaper glass container is there but a […]
I’m thrilled to post about the finished big-girl non-toxic bed! My daughter is loving being a big girl. (Plus she doesn’t sleep half on/half off the bed anymore.) The bedframe itself is the Abbey Trundle Bed from Costco.ca (this model is no longer available, but they have alternatives), made by CafeKid.
