I have done a LOT of research about their oils and other brands. I am NOT a doctor, and I am NOT an expert in oils. When I first started looking into using oils to help my family get healthier naturally, I had a lot of questions. I’ve found the answer to most of those questions and I thought I’d share some of what I learned with you.  1. It’s important to use high quality essential...

One oil that has become a favorite of mine lately is Birch. It’s a pretty strong oil and is actually the only one I own that came with a child lock, which tells ya something, right? Birch has some amazing properties. It is similar to Wintergreen essential oil in that they both have a cortisone-like quality and can be used to reduce pain, swelling, and discomfort in muscles, bones, and joints.  People with problems such as arthritis, rheumatism, cramps, and tendinitis have been able to find relief using this oil. Personally,...

It can be hard work getting two kids to sleep in the same room. Add in the fact that my kids are both under 3 years old, the chore gets even harder. I wrote a post awhile back with tips and tricks to getting kids to sleep in the same room, and I really have had some great success. We’re in a house now where my kids could have separate rooms if we wanted them to, but decided to leave them in the same room for now. But, I have to say, there are some nights that I regret that decision. When one kid has a hard time falling asleep, the...

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.  I can think of nothing worse than a sponge that stinks. Okay, I can think of a lot of worse things, but for the sake of this blog post, let’s pretend. I hate washing dishes to begin with, then top it off with the fact that if you don’t clean your sponge out right, it can really start to stink. When you think about the fact that that stench is from growing bacteria… it’s enough to make you sick! Not to mention the fact that a good sponge is kinda spendy, so it’s...

Remember to use the coupon code MOUSE for 10% off your order at www.sparknaturals.com. ADHD is such a hard thing for kids and adults to deal with. It has gotten the stigma of being a label that is just slapped on to kids that are a little harder to control. Many people hear that a child has ADHD and they assume that it must be the parent’s fault or that they had a lazy doctor. And many overwhelmed parents don’t know where to turn, so when their doctor suggests a pill that will fix the situation, they jump at the chance to have...
