So, you wanna’ detox your home this Spring? Fabulous! We are inundated with toxic chemicals within the walls of our homes and I know for our family it’s about replacing those items with better, non-toxic alternatives one at a time. If you haven’t gotten in on essential oils yet, they are amazing!! You can do so much with them, especially when it comes to cleaning and body care and the best part: they are safe. Simply put, essential oils are concentrated plant oils. Our “Detox Your Home” series will inspire you and show you how to make your own household supplies naturally using essential oils.

If only I had this before my Little came home with lice. Twice. Yep, good times. Shortly after I sent him off to pre-school, he came home one day with the dreaded little white ‘rain drops’ on his sweet, little head. If you’ve been there with your kiddos you know just how uncool head lice is. You have to wash everything and re-wash it and if you go the conventional way (like when we were kids), you douse your child’s heads with pesticides over and over again until they all finally die off, (thankfully, we have better, non-toxic options now that work great!). But, what if you could avoid all of this and simply prevent head lice? Enter…HEAD LICE PREVENTION/REPELLENT SPRAY. You guys! This is so easy. You need 3 ingredients in a spray bottle! Who’s in? Make up a batch of this, keep it in your cabinet and spray it on your child’s head before he/she goes off to school.
