Natural Solutions, using essential oils, for A Healthy Family

There I was at 2AM with a screaming, teething baby. I had rummaged through my medicine cabinet, coming away empty-handed to find anything to relieve her pain. That’s when I noticed my essential oil stash and oil reference guide on the back of my dresser. I had no idea if anything I had on hand would work, but at 2AM, I was willing to try anything. I quickly read through the guide and grabbed white fir essential oil. It happened to be the closest bottle that is listed, in one of my guide books as a possible remedy? I opened the bottle and took a big whiff.  “Smells just like a pine tree,” I thought to myself. I put a drop on my finger and proceeded to rub it on her gums. She pulled a nasty face like she had just been poisoned and proceeded to cry for another minute or two. Within five minutes she was resting peacefully and I was on my way back to bed in complete awe. This is just one of the many wonderful experiences I have had using essential oils with my family in the past several years.

For the love and health of Turmeric

For the love and health of turmeric, get it into your any way you can! Drink it, eat it and bath in it. Well, this may be a little extreme, however turmeric is a godsend that I just cannot do without.

Turmeric, is native to the South East area of India and grows wild and free in parts of Asia. It has been hailed for thousands of years for its medicinal, cosmetic and culinary attributes, and has a reputation as being one of the world’s most valuable and versatile herbs. Turmeric is accepted as being able to help with anti-aging, immunity, digestive, allergies, circulation, balancing blood sugar levels and vitality. Turmeric is rich in antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties putting it up there as a superfood to reckon with. Surely the people from The island of Okinawa, in Japan are on to something, they are some of the longest-lived people in the World and apparently drink a lot of turmeric tea!

Yes, we now have vegan Whoopie Pies – woo hoo

A “Whoopie Pie” is an American Desert, well to be specific it is more of a North Eastern American thing, consisting of a frosty filling smothered between 2 mounds of (traditionally) chocolate cake. Sounds delicious I know. However, usually Whoopie Pies are made with dairy products. Milk and Eggs in the cake mixture, and of course the filling is usually dairy-based as well. Definitely not vegan friendly.

Winter is her; cold day activities

Winter is well and truly here in the northern hemisphere, and with that means time spent outside is extremely limited due to the cold and rowdy weather. Combine this with less daylight hours, makes for a sudden shift in my day-to-day routine with my Son.

November, and we already have a lot of snow

As a stay-at-home-mum it’s up to me to plan indoor activities to keep my little boy entertained, as unfortunately there are going to be many days where it is just too cold or extreme to, comfortably, be outside. Take today for example, the wind is howling, and the torrential rain has not let up for hours!  Oh Summer, I miss you so.
