Rocky Mountain Oils – Kids Kits

I’ve recently been drawn to Rocky Mountain Oils after reading up on the company itself, and reading some research done by folks who spent their time researching EO companies, using the same kind of criteria I would have if I had the time and energy to do so! In the end, it seems that RMO and I will be a good match. With that said, I have just ordered a new diffuser for our home, and their “Bug Off” EO for the kids. I also just noticed they have a Kid’s Kit of several oils diluted properly for use in a roller ball dispenser on children, and it’s on sale right now…

Clean Living on a Homestead Diet

There are so many ideas out there for how best to live and eat that it can feel overwhelming. I do believe that over the recent years (from my youth through adulthood), our food choices have left something to be desired. So many preservatives and additives that have been added in order to make food last longer on shelves, or to entice taste buds, especially of young people, simply cannot be good for us, especially in large quantities or over long periods of time, building up in our bodies.

Tracy at Our Simple Homestead had a great post the other day about Living Clean on a Homestead Diet. This is something I aspire to for myself and our family as it seems to me that if we ate more whole foods, the way God gave them to us in the form of plants and animals, we might not have some of the health issues we have.

Check out her post. Are there some ways you are incorporating a “homestead diet”? Do you grow your own food or have animals? Do you have access to a farm or market? Do you like to can or preserve foods?

Your Natural Medicine Cabinet…

Nice post by Megan of Living Whole for what to keep in your natural “medicine cabinet” as you prepare for winter colds and flu… I’m happy to say we have much of these things on hand already, yay! I’d like to learn more about silver, however. In her post, Megan addresses each of her suggested natural remedies for prevention as well as healing and getting over those nasty viruses, and even gives us links to where to find them.

Great Quick Healthy Breakfast Idea

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

I’ve made various versions of ranch dressing, including one using the extra kefir I wind up having on hand periodically, but I really like how this one is basically just the dry ingredients, kept together in an air tight jar, ready to be used for or in just about anything! I like the idea of just being able to scoop out and use what I need at the moment. A great little seasoning tip from Jenny at AuNaturale Nutrition!
