Better Than Bleach

I love to picture myself in a field of lavender, in a flowing white dress, bare feet in the dirt, soaking in the glory of the sun. In reality, I’d look like a dirty hobo. I am a dirt magnet. I do dirty things, often. I am also very accident-prone. (I consider that a wash…

GF Banana Bread With Chia

I had some of those icky bananas, you know the kind that are a day away from the trash can for most people. Those are my favorite kind of banana. Why? Well, of course I am going to tell you. Despite the controversy over the topic, and although there has been no “credible” research done on humans, there is a very…

Natural Laundry Pods DIY

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if there was this little miracle laundry pod… (insert dreamy harp music) man-made-carcinogenic-chemical-free, that includes fabric softener and has an amazing fresh scent. One that you could make yourself for a very low cost, that would save you lots of time vs. the traditional homemade laundry soaps we see everywhere these days?! (back…

Chocolate You Won’t Feel Guilty About Eating

My family loves this recipe. Of course they loved Nutella, but this hippie could not pronounce all the ingredients and reading the amount of sugar in a 2 tbsp serving made me dizzy!  So, I set to work on a healthier version. Boy, did I succeed! Not only is this not as bad for you…

Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Gluten can cause a number of health problems, and contribute to many more, even if you do not have a gluten allergy or intolerance. For me, the focus is my inflammatory response. I love bread, but anytime I eat it I hurt all over, and my skin becomes super sensitive. A gluten free diet is beneficial for everyone though, and…

Non-Stinky-Hippie Deo

Here lately my hippie-home-made deodorant has become mighty popular. And by that I mean maybe 3 or 4 others use it. Those people are devout believers in the hippie deo, though. I have met a rash of people looking for a better option. Many people are afraid to try. Many people can’t afford the expensive store-bought non-toxic deodorants. I have worked…

Natural Soft Scrub

It is nearly springtime and that means we are itching to open the windows and deep clean our homes! Wait, you’re not excited for spring cleaning? Well, that changes things a bit. Would you be more excited if I gave you a fun, natural cleaner recipe that would make the job easier? This made me excited!…

Super Lice vs. Super Hippie!

I started calling the plague of lice that hit my home last year “super lice” because they would not die. They say lice cannot jump… ha! They say a lot of things, don’t listen to any of it 🙂 This year I learned at work that super lice is indeed such a thing, because lice are becoming…

Wavy Hair Spritz

I have curly hair. I use the term “curly” loosely. Really my hair is never the same from one day to the next. My hair is an ever changing entity that lives upon my head, over which I have little control. I spent most of my life trying to tame the beast, products and more products,…

Aftershave, Naturally

Yes, hippies shave too! And struggle with razor burn like all of the non-hippie world. I just don’t like to use all of the chemical filled shaving creams and aftershaves that help soothe my sensitive, dry skin. My rule is, as always, if I can’t pronounce it, I probably do not want it on or in my body. Let’s be honest,…

Natural Toothpaste

Toothpaste is good right? We learn from a very young age the importance of dental hygiene, and really, thank goodness! Your mouth is a gateway to your body. An infection or imbalance in your mouth directly affects your health in a profound way. We need not only healthy teeth, but healthy gums, mucosa and tongue…

DIY Natural Toilet Tab

Toilets are just plain gross.  I need help in the toilet cleaning department because I don’t like to even touch the nasty things. I used to buy bleach tablets to put in the tank to help keep the toilet cleaner so I did not have to do as much touching and scrubbing of the toilet…

Natural Cough Drops

When you are sick, it is very easy to slide into a routine of consuming processed junk and over the counter drugs just to keep up with your daily responsibilities. This is the absolute worst of times to fill your body with garbage. You need to give your body all the building blocks it needs…
