6 Ways I Use Holiday Essential Oils During Winter

The winter season is the perfect time to slow down, to nourish your body and mind, and to make beautiful memories with loved ones.

During this time, we do what we can to cut down on outside commitments so we can spend more time together as a family. Because my kids and I spend so much time at home during the winter,...

How To Approach Ear Infections Naturally

Because ear infections are a common occurrence during childhood, I consider myself very blessed that not one of my four kids has ever been diagnosed with one. Any time they’ve complained of an earache, I immediately approached the situation as if it were an actual ear infection — only from a natural perspective.  In this post, I want to talk a bit about acute ear infections, how you can approach ear infections naturally at home, and when it’s time to go see a doctor. Ear Infections 101 Ear infections can be caused by bacteria or a virus (Normandin &...

6 Ways I Make My Home Cozy For Fall

Fall is hands down my favorite season of the year. Not only do I enjoy the slowing of life that commonly occurs during this time of the year, but I enjoy the festivities the season brings as well. These festivities, whether they’re holidays, local festivals, or fun family traditions add to the coziness of the fall season. I’m not sure what fall is like in other parts of the world, but here in East Tennessee, fall symbolizes fellowship with friends and family as no other season does. This year, one of my goals has been to settle into my...

A St. Patrick’s Day Green Smoothie That Tastes Great!

Life with kids is never boring, especially around St. Patrick’s Day, which is one of my kid’s favorite holidays! They look forward to it every year because they get to wear green clothes (and pinch those who don’t), decorate the house with shamrocks, rainbows, and pots of gold, and eat yummy green foods at every meal. Speaking of green foods, I try to make our St. Patrick’s Day meals fun, delicious, and as healthy as I can. This year, we’re having green smoothies (recipe below), green spinach muffins, and homemade yogurt for breakfast. There will be zucchini soup and...

5 Soothing Ways To Help Your Sick Kid Feel Better

Having a sick kid stinks. Having four sick kids, all at the same time, really stinks. I should know! And why is it that anytime one of my kids get sick, all the others end up sick too?! It’s not like I’m not doing my darnedest to keep them healthy and to minimize the spread of germs. I mean, the elderberry syrup is flowing, the antimicrobial essential oils are diffusing off and on, homemade disinfecting sprays are being spritzed all over, hands are being washed repeatedly… all to no avail, it seems. And, to make matters worse, not only...
