Herbal Bath

I absolutely love to take a Hot Herbal Bath. It is so simple to do and is one way to activate all of our senses at once.  Just by carefully choosing a specific blend of herbs, it has the ability to be stimulating, relaxing, soothing, or medicinal.  Without getting all scientific, our skin is our…

NETTLE HAIR RINSE

Nettle is such a fantastic herb for many reasons.  It is a special liver tonic that is full of nutrients and supports the immune system.  I love drinking Nettle tea on a daily basis.

SHAMPOO BARS

I just finished making another batch of Shampoo Bars.  I have been making them for years for me and my husband.  Besides having an abundant supply of shampoo in the cupboard, they are portable, save us money, completely biodegradable and have absolutely no waste for the landfill.  They usually last us for a year before…

The Pressure of a Sinus Infection

Green Juice

One of the easiest take-aways from my experience at the Wild Food Retreat with Katrina Blair was the practice of drinking 2 green juices a day. Before I eat my breakfast I have a simple, quick green juice and again later while I am preparing dinner.  I always made drinking a green beverage so complicated…
