My Update to Non Toxic Toes for Spring and Summer!

Posted by:

Don’t you love that almost everywhere we women are getting ready to don our favorite sandals and flip flops! Time to really scrub up and get our feet polished up and pretty. Ever notice the chemical odors when applying nail polish? The Environmental Working Group and Women’s Voices for the Earth deem these smells the “toxic trio.” And each of these “toxic trio” chemicals have been classified as the most toxic by the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database that I mentioned ...

Summertime!

Posted by:

Summer to me is about lots of things that start with the letter “S”! In today’s post it was easy to select categories that have “significance” and that offer “savory accents” to our summer experiences.  Food is so much a part of what we all enjoy – food is “social” as it brings us together; the “seasonal” bounty offers us a huge range of produce we don’t see any other time of the year. Summer also means we get to ...

Self-Nourishment during Covid

Posted by:

Our days have certainly changed since my last post, haven’t they? We are living with such uncertainty. All around us though, us humans are stepping up and showing love and kindnesses in the most remarkable, creative ways! We see examples of them every day on Social Media, the news and in our own neighborhoods.

One of the greatest acts of love we’re all being asked to follow are  the staying-at-home directives. Challenging, yet it is the ultimate act in caring for ...

Celebrating Five Years!

Posted by:

Five years ago this month I started this blog. I thought I’d write a year’s worth of posts and see where it went. So here I am five years later with over a hundred posts and hundreds of loyal readers! Who knew? Five years ago, I was a 10-year breast cancer survivor. This year, I hit the 15-year milestone! I’m feeling so blessed!

I’ve tried to cover a variety of topics over the years, as healthy living encompasses so many facets ...

Where to Begin?

Posted by:

I can’t tell you how many times my readers tell me that they really want to live a more “non-toxic” lifestyle but they don’t know where to begin. They also express concerns about doing this in an affordable way. Believe me, I know. I started this journey 15 years ago. I admit it can be overwhelming, but I do have a few suggestions for making the transition easier!

I’d like to add that it’s important to give yourself a high five ...

The Spoils of Oils!

Posted by:

I use them when I bathe and shower, as room fresheners in diffusers, and as daily uplifting or calming modalities. Lots of us also love their fragrances in potpourri.  They are wonderful as part of natural cleaning products. I also use them in my Reiki practice, and I’ll bet many of you who practice yoga have experienced them in class in one fashion or another. Many of us enjoy them in herbal teas too!

Essential oils offer so much. Did you ...

It’s officially autumn and with this season I always think of pumpkins! We carve them, decorate with them and best of all, we eat pumpkin in many delicious ways!

Did you know that pumpkin:

Naked as a Jaybird?

Posted by:

Deodorants vs. antiperspirants! A tricky, personal topic but certainly important when considering one’s daily hygiene!

And don’t we all seem to need it more now that the temps are rising and we are all a little “schweddy” these days 🙂 While we need a product that works, it’s also important to find one that doesn’t list ingredients that could potentially cause health issues down the road. And how about something for the active pre-teens in our lives that is also safe! ...

Zents – Born out of Healing

Posted by:

How about a skincare company that shares this image and saying? You don’t see this every day, right?! And there are MORE where that came from-Organic, eco- and mindfulness-oriented all at the same time! Self-Care and global LOVE and HEALING all beautifully wrapped up in the world of “Presence.”

My personal journey with Zents started six years ago when I picked up an organic body oil that smelled DIVINE- light in fragrance  and yet luxurious on my body. I am extremely ...

Cosmetic Acupuncture Works!

Posted by:

Hey readers! Okay, so you know I practice what I preach :-). A year ago I wrote a blog post about cosmetic acupuncture. During my research, I was fortunate to find Dr. Martha Lucas who lives right here in Denver! I went to see Dr. Lucas with these areas of concern: facial age spots, sagging jawline, neck lines and puffy eyes.

As promised, I set up a series of 10 sessions with her a few months ago and am happy to ...
