When buying fruit and veggies, always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom.

No sinus infections in the house for years.  When we get stuffed up we get relief in under a minute, and it doesn't settle or move into the chest. Inhale it from the bottle, or put a few drops on a tissue or cotton swab to carry around/ sleep with. When it is all of us I put 20 drops or so with a cup or 2 of water and simmer on the stove for a few hours. That also prevents colds from spreading(anitbacterial and antiviral). One person I know puts it in her vacuum when she vacuums.

Dandelion Puffs: These wishes just wait on a shelf or kitchen counter until a sad child needs some love and encouragement. Then, it is off with the cap, eyes squinched closed for a wish, and a big huff. This cheers children any time they're sad–and it makes me happy just to see the dandelion puffs resting in wait. So sweet... <3

Never have to fumble in the back for a dropped sippy cup again! Genius! I have a feeling I'll be making one of these in the future.

Sippy Cup Leash: Re-visited and Improved

Remember when I made the sippy cup leash over a year ago, here? Well, it needed some improvements. Before moving across the country last winter, I realized that the sippy cup leash needed an upgrade. The velcro on the old one was finicky and didn't stick as well after a while.......especially if the sippy cup was completely full and heavy. (Sorry if you made one and had the same trouble...) Anyway, I created a new one for our long trip cross-country 9 months ago, eliminating the task of…
