Natural Mouthwash

Here's one way to return to simple living. I have decided to make some of my own homemade products for my family to use such as mouthwash. The items used are natural and provide a wide variety of heath benefits, which is very important to me as a wife and mother. Not to mention, making DIY products are most often low cost over all and fun to make. Try it for yourself and reap the benefits of all natural, homemade products!

Natural Immune System Support

This Fall, I launched a Wellness Challenge for nurses and teachers, people who are most exposed to germs. I particpiated in the challenge along with a nurse and a teacher.
