Are you one of the 70 million people in the U.S. with insomnia? Insomnia and other sleep conditions are estimated to cost more than $15 billion in health care costs alone with another $50 billion in lost productivity. While that paints the picture of the bigger problem, on an individual basis you know just how hard it is to go about your day and enjoy life when you aren't able to get the sleep you need.
If you, like me, want to treat your sleep problems without OTC drugs or…

But when you’re creating a healthy, toxin-free bed it’s essential to know what sheets are made of and how they’re processed. Here are 4 things to consider when shopping for healthier alternatives to conventional sheets:
A label on new sheets tells us the size, fiber content, thread count and care instructions – that’s it. Unfortunately, the…Read more

As mentioned in a prior blog, I’m on a mission to “green” every part of my life. My first blog tackled beauty products and this one is about cleaning products. When I had my son a little over 4 years ago I began to realize how much I needed to pay attention to what I was spraying and rubbing all around my house. I watched him taste test everything and try to gnaw on the couch and table once he started teething….and that’s just a few of the things I noticed! I certainly wouldn’t want him…Read more

I have always loved Easter eggs. I have fond memories of creating Easter eggs as a child at my gramma’s house with my cousins. Naturally, I thought this would be a tradition to share with my little guy this year.

I used to be a self-declared ‘Product Junkie’. I loved to try new hair, skin care and make-up products all the time. Sure, I always had my tried, tested and true products, but I also would test drive new ones as they were released or based on positive recommendations. As I have gotten a bit older (goodbye twenties!), and money and time have gotten a bit tighter (hello thirties…), I have gotten away from this hobby.

It seems that a few key categories are emerging on my Whole Living Blog. Today I'm adding "My Balance" to the mix. "My Balance" posts will focus on steps I'm taking to improve my physical, emotional & spiritual health. Starting with the physical, I'd like to share a little with you about my relationship with my skin. The first major skin issue I remember was a cut across my chin acquired in Kindergarten when swinging with my belly down and arms and legs out like a flying superhero. The…Read more

OK, there are so many things to do with essential oils that this could in fact be a never ending subject, so I am going to keep this simple. One way to easily start scenting your home is to drop an oil onto a light bulb, or put a few drops onto cotton balls and place them in hidden spots. (Some essential oils, such as peppermint, actually discourage mice and other critters, flies and moths loathe Lavandin.) You can add a few drops of oil to distilled water in a sprayer bottle and use as an…Read more
If you don't have at least a couple of bottles of essential oils in your house, you are missing out on one of nature's greatest gifts. We use them every day. In fact, they are such a part of every day life they have become like wallpaper~ it has taken me this long to think about writing about them, even though I credit Lavender with keeping my sons away from most of the illnesses that travel around their circles. I also credit it for helping them fall asleep, especially when my oldest was a…Read more

According to the American Heart Association women should have no more than 25 grams of sugar daily and men should have no more than 37.5 grams per day.This may be hard for many people to do since one 12 ounce can of Coca-Cola will give you 39 grams of sugar. Not to mention that sugar is in everything! That may be one of the reasons people who need to limit their sugar intake have so much trouble doing so. As an average we ingest approx. 88.8 grams of added sugar a day!! Wow! Yogurt…Read more

Plagued by an upset stomach? Feeling like it is the last thing you need right now?
Since I was about 6 months old I have been battling back and forth with stomach problems. From surgery that young (yes really) on my stomach and intestines- it soon ended up being one of those things you learn to live with.
I have been a witness to some home remedies for an upset stomach and have added some of my own twists to the classics.
