  • 3 Best Natural Beauty Routine Swaps

    Making swaps in your beauty routine can seem daunting. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be. These three swaps can make a big difference in your beauty routine, and set you on the way to all natural beauty. 1.Moisturizer Moisturizer sits on your skin all day and is readily absorbed. It should be applied twice a day. That is why it is my top pick for a natural swap. I am all about face oils. I am currently using a mixture of organic sweet almond oil and organic castor oil as my daily moisturizer. Now this will vary from person to person. I have extremely dry, sensitive…

  • Living a Natural Life as a Nurse

    If you didn’t catch from the title I am a nurse. I have been for about a year now. I have been working in hospitals for about three. I have always known I wanted to be a nurse. I love what I do. It fulfills me on many levels. However, many times I do feel an inner battle between my medical self and my natural-living self. Every day I come in contact with chemicals at my job. There is no avoiding it. The hospital is full of so many super-bugs that Castile soap just won’t kill. We use bleach and products full of carcinogens with warning labels a mile long.…

  • 3 Great Reasons to Remove Fragrance from Your Life

    I must admit… fragrance was an addiction of mine. I still stop myself smelling all the candles in TJ Maxx when I am standing at the check out every once in awhile. But I am here to tell you cutting fragrance was one of the best and easiest things I have on my natural/non-toxic journey so far. 1.You Don’t Know What Makes Up “Fragrance” The EWG states that the average fragrance is made up of 14 chemicals, which are kept secret, and do not have to be disclosed on a products label. Since these fragrances are considered “trade secrets” companies are protected from not having to disclose this information 2.It…

  • How to Start Living a Non-Toxic Life

    This topic of a non-toxic lifestyle is the whole reason I started a blog in the first place. I am very passionate about it. I truly feel it is something that you must feel a drive for to implement into your own life. It isn’t easy. There are friends, family, co-workers who will look at you like you have three heads when you start talking about how you gave up fabric softener or windex. But I am here to tell you it is so worth it. I have been implementing a non-toxic lifestyle for the last 6 months and have seen a huge change in my life. The biggest of…

  • Beginners Guide to Non-Toxic Cleaning

    Non-toxic and natural cleaning products have been a huge trend lately. It becomes so overwhelming as to what is actually a good choice. But here is a couple of steps to make the choices a little easier. 1.Review your products Go through all your current cleaning products. If there is any type of warning label, caution sign, or anything indicating the product is dangerous…You should probably get rid of it. If it is dangerous enough to warrant a warning label do you really want to use it on the surfaces you prepare foods, or have it come in contact with you skin while you are cleaning. If your product contains…

  • Best Natural Fabric Softener

    Trying to find a natural fabric softener that fit my standards was hard. They either had too many ingredients, had fragrance, or were just too hard on the wallet. That was until I came across my holy grail… VINEGAR Would you believe it. Vinegar, plain ol’ white vinegar, is an amazing fabric softener. You’re probably thinking won’t my clothes smell like vinegar. NOPE! I have never had my clothes come out smelling anything like vinegar. As an added bonus the vinegar also helps keep your washing machine clean! So heres how it works… Depending on the size of the load put 1/8 to 1/4 cup of distilled white vinagat into…

  • What to expect

    First let me say if you are reading this any time soon…thank you! Actually if you are reading this at all I want to thank you. This is going to be an entirely new experience for me. So hang with me as I work out the bumps. I would like to set the scene, if you will, about what you can expect out of this blog in the future. I am going to be bringing you content about organic eating, ridding chemicals from your life, positive mindset, and living a rounded happy life. All of this is going to be from a perspective of a new college grad. Things will…

  • Here goes nothing…

    I’ve always had a running narrative in my head. Like I am on some hidden TV show or running a very successful Youtube vlog channel. I do neither of those things. However, I have always had a desire to share the information I find with everyone I meet. I have a passion for research and want to spread the amazing information I find. Thus a blog is born. I am a soon to be 23 year old. In deep denial that I have already been out of college a full year. I studied nursing and am now a practicing nurse. I have always had a passion for health and wellness.…
