Product Review: Chalkola Chalk Markers

I had the opportunity to try out Chalkola Chalk markers recently and here are my thoughts on it. First I like that they aren’t the old dusty type chalk that we grew up with. I still remember having to slap the chalkboard erasers together outside to clean them. These are different because its not like regular chalk these are more like markers but washable. read more…

Making Your Own Natural Dishwashing Rinse

Making Your Own Natural Dishwashing Rinse

Anyone that has purchased natural dishwashing rinse from somewhere like Whole Foods knows that it’s expensive. It’s about $5 a bottle and depending on your settings it doesn’t last you a long time. I refuse to buy the regular kind with all the chemicals in it that will sit on my plates.

Fishy Bait & Switch Continues

This Bee Product Has Enormous Benefits for Your Health

This Bee Product Has Enormous Benefits for Your Health

Various products derived from the beehive have been studied and propolis has proved to be a product having beneficial results for human health.

Propolis (Pro-before, Polis-city = defense of the city), is the resinous substance that bees gather from the leaf buds of trees and certain vegetables.

The bee gathers this and transforms it in order to disinfect the beehive, seal cracks, build panels, as well as using it as a microbiocidal agent, disinfectant and also for embalming intruders otherwise difficult to expel due to their size.

Propolis, thus, is directly responsible for guaranteeing the asepsis of the beehives, locations prone to developing viruses and bacteria, given their conditions of temperature and humidity.

Due to the great number of active ingredients present, tincture (alcoholic extract) of propolis is well known and used for its therapeutic properties, principally for its stimulant action on the organism’s defense system. Notable amongst its properties are its antioxidant and anti-microbial action, its activity as a stimulant and its healing, analgesic, anesthetic and anti-inflammatory activity.

Lavender oil for personal use, for children and for cleaning

Lavender oil for personal use, for children and for cleaning

When my kids were babies I discovered how well lavender oil helps children sleep. A particular company made a lavender scented bubble bath and right away it seemed to make my life easier by helping my children fall asleep easier. I didn’t realize at the time all the chemicals that were in the bubble bath but now there is a healthier way to get the same affect. Using a drop or 2 in your kids bath at night will help them fall asleep faster and easier at night. I have listed many different ways lavender can be used for health and around the house. Let me know if there is something else you use it for that I may have missed. read more….

How To Make Melting Shower Tablets For Colds

How To Make Melting Shower Tablets For Colds

It’s that time of year again that you may need to keep these around to fight off congestion. I tried out this recipe recently to make homemade vapor shower tablets for the shower and it worked pretty well. These are similar to the kind you can buy at the store but natural.They are easy to make and cost a lot less than the store brands.You can use any type of mold to form them or you can just form them with your hands. They are nice to keep in a glass jar in the bathroom and use them as needed throughout the winter.
