Berkey Water Filter Giveaway!

My guess is that you are blessed with access to clean running water. We don’t really worry about getting parasites or other waterborne diseases when we turn on our tap. But while we are blessed with clean water coming through indoor plumbing, are you aware of some of the environmental contaminants that are frequently found in […]

Delightful Links – Health and Wellness


Pictured above are some of the supplies I’m using to create tutorials for the rest of the simple, homemade gifts series! It’s quite a task (but is definitely my kind of fun)!

Rose and Chamomile Bath Bags

bath bags

Rose and chamomile are great for the skin and the senses. Adding these herbs to the bath takes bathing to a new level. The herbs infuse the water, nourishing the skin. The scent of the herbs fills the air as the steam escapes from the water, making this an aromatic experience as well. For a […]

Vanilla-Almond Granola Recipe

vanilla-almond granola

A few days ago I posted an orange-cranberry granola recipe. I love that recipe and find it’s a wonderful gift because the flavors are somewhat unexpected.

Orange Cranberry Granola Recipe


Granola is an excellent gift to make with kids. The ingredients are fairly easy for them to measure and stir, and they can even help with the packaging. I also enjoy giving granola since it is a consumable gift. It’s not extra clutter, but something that can be used and enjoyed. Granola can be packaged […]

Lemon Rose Body Wash

Lemon and Rose Body Wash

This body wash works as an everyday body cleanser. It is refreshing and, best of all, it’s totally natural! It does not have a strong rose scent, but does include the benefits of roses, by first infusing the coconut oil with rose petals. This step could be skipped if you don’t have rose petals, but […]

It gently removes dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and smooth. The addition of Shea butter makes this scrub extra nourishing as it is extremely emollient and healing to the skin. Coconut […]

It’s easy for us to get tired and worn out. Often we think that a little pampering would do us good. Maybe we think a spa night with friends would be fun. We can even do it at home and have a girls night in. But then . . . It starts to get complicated. […]
