I haven't posted here for a bit. Because life. Amiright? :)
So I thought I'd do a small update and start keeping a list of THINGS I'm working on and incorporating into our life to keep my little family healthy.
Chia seeds. I put them in everything.
Still loving not washing my hair! It has taken a while to get the right ratio of baking soda and ACV, and my hair still tends to get oily quick, but I'm still quite pleased and don't see ever going back to shampoo and conditioner. We don't wash Ceil's hair (it's red and curly and thick) we just rinse hers and use an organic conditioner. I might try doing a baking soda wash on hers soon and see how it goes. She was a bit fussy the one time I used ACV on her hair (silly girl).
Green smoothies...my awesome hubby has one every day. Usually peanut butter.
Coconut oil. For cooking, eating (by itself!), using in recipes, as hand lotion, lip balm, in my essential oil concoctions, body lotion. I find it's only greasy for a little bit and then the greasiness dissipates. Also great for removing eye makeup and makeup in general. I use it all over my face--and again the greasiness dissipates and my skin absorbs the oil (very happily). But don't get it in your eye. That's weird. :)
Essential oils! I'm currently in love with wintergreen--I'm using it in my homemade toothpaste, mouth wash, and a balm I made for pain relief--works wonders!
Our diet is still not 100% organic or grass fed, but we're headed there slowly. I'm always thrilled to find organic products at my Walmart--and I swipe them up quickly so they know they've got customers who want those types of items.
Enough rambling for now...
Life is Good
Live Like You Mean It!
