Death by Candlelight....

Irresistible right?? If only I knew the damage being done to my health. Read the full blog to find out why candles are just as toxic as cigarettes and some better alternatives.

Bath bombs! Avoid the chemical sh!tstorm and make your own ;)

Bath bombs! Avoid the chemical sh!tstorm and make your own ;)
Bath bombs are taking the world by storm! But sadly most are full of weirdo ingredients that you absolutely don't want to soak your delicate bits in!

A very popular brand on the market includes ingredients like Sodium Laureth Sulfate (read about this ingredient here: https://davidsuzuki.org/queen-of-green/dirty-dozen-sodium-laureth-sulfate/) and Propylene Glycol (read about this ingredient here: https://draxe.com/nutrition/propylene-glycol/).

It also lists "perfume" which can be a concoction of hundreds of toxic chemicals. No thanks!

So here's a super simple recipe that works wonderfully as you can see in this video:

  • 3 tsps EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 5-10 drops essential oils
  • Spray bottle of filtered water
