DIY Pool Side Protection from Chlorine

I am a Florida girl and I loooooooove the water. My family said that I would rather be in the pool than on the ground (which is probably true) but I kinda hate chemicals (I bet you had no idea). Unfortunately, in Florida almost all pools are chlorinated (boo) unlike the pools out west which are all salt water and glorious.

As a result, I did a lot of research to find the best ways to protect myself from chlorine and this is what I found...

DIY Face Wash and Makeup Remover

Face wash is important. In fact, it's something that I think a lot about. You may think that it's weird to think about face wash, but it's really actually pretty hip/cool and I'm starting a new trend so you should start thinking about face wash too!  To get you started... here are some fun facts.

Home Remedies with CBD

It's time to get busy with some DIY Home Remedy talk, but I gotta tell you something. I'm not a doctor (I'm actually a nurse which apparently means nothing to the FDA) and as such I cannot claim to cure, treat or diagnose anything, but I can tell you what has worked for me and my family. Annnnnd, what I am going to tell you is lots of awesome.

You ready?! Are you sitting down?! Well, you should be! I'm going to share some info that's going to blow your mind!!! Seriously-- it's kind of awesome, but I'm going to say a few words that may... um, well... um, invoke a certain response since it's a hot button topic. Don't judge! Keep an open mind so I can blow it, okay?! OKAY!

Now let's talk about CBD....

5 Essential Oils for Cleaning (Chemical Free)

Did you know that most retail cleaning products contain chemicals? Of course you do! But did you know that a majority of those chemicals are considered harmful? The industry isn't really well regulated and often the laws that are in place allow manufactures to hide hidden ingredients in "fragrance" or "perfume" even if it's considered "all natural". BOOOO!!!!

Did you know that 96% of air fresheners are derived from petroleum? The EPA lists the 4 most common ingredients in air fresheners as formaldehyde, petroleum distillates, p- dichlorobenzene, and aerosol propellants. YAY! That should smell amazing, right?!

If you want to find out what's in your cleaning products, you can go to the EWG's Guide to Healthy Cleaning to see how your cleaning products rate. I know when I first found this site I was shocked at how badly my "organic" and "green" cleaning products scored! That's why I became determined to make my own DIY cleaning products for my family!

5 Essential Oil Storage Solutions

I have gotten a lot of emails lately asking about how to store essential oils for travel or just for every day use.  Lucky for you, I'm completely obsessed with essential oil and I have about 10 different storage solutions at my house. Some of them I love, some of them I'm okay with and some of them I would never recommend (don't get the tacky plastic tower one-- I don't know what I was thinking).

Let me show you some of my favorite essential oil storage solutions for every day use, long weekends, travel/storage, and for the home diffuser, too!
