How to Easily Decorate Your Home for Thanksgiving W/ Free Printables

Thanksgiving stickers

There are not so many days left until Thanksgiving and, although many of you have already started preparing for Christmas, it wouldn’t be fair not to give the Turkey Day a proper welcome it deserves. Nurturing a thankful heart is something people should strive towards all the time, but it’s always good to have Thanksgiving as a wild card and a second chance to express love and gratitude, if you don’t get the chance to do it as often as you’d like throughout the year.

Is Manuka Honey Worth The Hype?


My kids and I have been using different types of honey for years and a few years back discovered Manuka honey. I was first told about it when a friend got a third degree burn and she put Manuka honey over the burn instead of any other ointment. She was told she would need a skin graph and after a little over a month of the Manuka honey she didn’t need the skin graph. The doctor asked her what she used and she told him the Manuka honey and he just looked at her kind of strange. Either way it worked.
My daughter loves it but I have heard different stories out there that most of the Manuka honey you buy at the store is fake or very low quality. I have looked into to different brands and have been sticking to the same one now that we believe to be a high quality. I have put a link at the bottom of the article so if you want to try it out you can purchase it through Amazon. I have found its great for stomach aches in children read more….

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 Lavender Lotion Bars In The Crockpot


I made these lotion bars recently and this is actually the easiest thing to make. You can use almost any essential oil to scent it but I used lavender because I found it seems to be a universal scent that anyone likes. I would stay away from any citrus oils because of the problem with being out in the sun after applying it on your skin. It can cause a burn or rash on your skin. Anyway, this recipe calls for shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax click for recipe….
