Let’s face it, as we get older our skin gets drier and nowhere is that more evident than the bottoms of our feet. Dry, cracked, skin, over time becomes thick and hard.

That’s why I’m in love with this Personal Care Set from Grove Collaborative. Grab your free set of Burt’s Bees cleansing towelettes + lip crayon + body lotion + Grove Collaborative hand cream with your first order of $20. Then take a...

The Best Shelf-Stable Chicken Bone Broth {Kettle & Fire Review}

We all know that bone broth is amazingly good for us. It’s packed full of collagen to help our joints, skin, and digestion, and is an integral part of all gut-healing protocols. Bone broth is something we can make at home, but it’s not always convenient to do so, and the results can be subpar (This might just be me! My broth doesn’t turn out to be super delicious). I can’t recommend buying or using most broth at the grocery store. In fact, I’ve spent much time scanning ingredients lists of broth and found all kinds of undesirable additives and even sugar!...

Why I Love Mountain Rose Herbs for DIY Ingredients

If you’ve looked over many of my DIY posts and tutorials, you’ll notice that I often recommend purchasing supplies from Mountain Rose Herbs. Since I do that so often, I thought it might be time to share WHY I purchase from, and recommend them, so much. Way back when I purchased my first DIY Body care book (in 2007), I sat down and researched where to buy ingredients. I started it with very simple stuff I could get at the grocery store, like sugar, oil, and Epsom salt, but eventually, I needed other ingredients, like beeswax to make salves, ointments, creams, and lip...

Green Up Your Laundry with Grove Collaborative

Over the last few years, we’ve made a lot of changes to make our home greener. We’ve swapped plastic water bottles for refillable ones, started buying locally grown foods, and switched to natural cleaning products. Natural laundry was another area I worked on, but it was a little more challenging. Of course, the easiest way to reduce our environmental impact would be do less laundry. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a way to do that yet (if I do, you’ll be the first to know!). Until that happens, one easy way to green up your laundry is with this FREE Laundry...

How to Quit Coffee | A Delightful Home
Congratulations!  You’ve taken one of the toughest steps towards quitting coffee:  deciding it’s time to do so.  It’s not an easy decision to make.  For many, coffee is not just a beverage, but a ritual, a trusted friend and a part of life.  I get it! But, coffee also has a dark side beyond its roast.  As you read in my recent post Is Coffee Harming Your Health? some of coffee’s ill effects include raised cortisol levels, anxiety, fatigue, irritability and food cravings. You may be thinking, “I’m going to be very irritable quitting coffee!” and that may be true for...
