Meditation tips

I used to be great at setting aside a portion of each day to breathe, do yoga or meditate. Then business life with 2 kids snuck up on me and my meditation routine has not been regular. I’ve been more stressed and more anxious lately, so I’ve decided it’s time to get back into my meditation routine. The problem is, … Read More

Long weekends are supposed to be fun, right? Long weekends are supposed to be relaxing, right? Long weekends are supposed to let you recharge, right?

Refreshing DIY oil blends

Summer time is full of hot days, long nights and road trips! In the winter, I enjoy blends that are warm, soothing and spicy but in the summer, I like blends that are uplifting, citrusy and refreshing!

Product Profile: Aftershave Balm

We originally formatted this product for my hunny. His facial hair is coarse and gets caught in every razor he uses leaving him with raised bumps, rashes and irritated skin. His solution for the last few years has been to never shave, just trim. Then Rachel’s man seemed to have the same problem with irritations and rashes because he HAS … Read More

Essential Oils For Camping

I love to pack a few essential oils in my bag when I travel. They take up virtually no space and can come in handy for headaches, sleep, staying awake on the road, bugs, yucky washrooms, fevers and even…hangovers when fireside drinks get carried away. These are some that I find I’m always throwing into my bag for the road. … Read More

Reverse Summer Skin Damage

We forget how high the UV index can be in Canada during the summer. You’d think in a place with almost 8 months of winter, our summers would be mild but that’s definitely NOT the case.

Support farmers market

Farmer’s markets are where we got started! Three years in, we are still out on the streets all summer. We wouldn’t do it unless it meant something to us and it means so much more than making money.

Natural muscle revovery

You don’t realize how lethargic you’ve been all winter until summer hits, the bikes are out, soccer starts & you get motivated to go for a run.
