Whiten Teeth- Naturally

June 3, 2014 4

This is one of the coolest tricks to whiten your teeth- it works like a charm. I read about using the herb turmeric to whiten your teeth at Raw for Beauty.  Skeptical, I tried it at home and actually giggled with glee because the results were obvious. So simple, here is what you do: Pick up a jar of ground turmeric. It is the consistency of ground cinnamon, but mustard-yellow in color.  Be careful, it will stain clothing!  Put a spoonful of turmeric in a small dish, add a bit of water to form a paste. Brush your teeth...

Your Curb is a Shoreline

April 16, 2014 0

City streets are a lot like waterfront property; everything that rinses off your roof, yard and driveway ends up in ponds, lakes, waterways and eventually the Mississippi River. Because of this, I can’t justify using chemicals on our lawn. We pull the dandelions, and when desperate, spot treat the stubborn weeds.  Spraying our yard over-all with chemicals several times a year just to see green grass is too high of a price for us to pay. There are options for your lawn that are ecofriendly and will give you the same results without the toxic side effects to the...

Are you really Gluten Free?

February 25, 2014 2

Many people are cutting back on gluten or going totally gluten free.  Your diet is the biggest source of gluten, but there is another source most people don’t consider. The vast majority of skincare items do contain wheat- the main culprit for gluten. Our mantra of “what goes ON your body, goes IN your body is something everyone needs to consider when choosing skincare.  The ingredients absorb into your body – parabens, gluten, chemicals and more. Why is wheat even used in skincare?  Companies find it easier to use hydrolyzed wheat in products, a proven skin conditioner, then to...

The winter blues got you down?  Vitamin D may be your answer. The only way we get Vitamin D is through sun exposure or supplementation. In the winter, we are not outside receiving the sun’s rays on our skin allowing us to produce Vitamin D in our bodies.  Vitamin D is needed to create the hormonal cascade in our bodies, effecting all aspects of health. According to the Vitamin D council, the below are some of the functions of the body that Vitamin D helps with: Immune system, which helps you fight infection Muscle function Bone health Cardiovascular function,...
