A Healthy Lifestyle

                                          Everyday is a brand new day, everyday is a journey.

Over the past five years, we've acquired a healthy lifestyle in becoming vegetarians and opting for more healthier choices in our life. That doesn't mean we don't indulge in desserts or decadent dishes. On the contrary, I have been blessed with a daughter who can make anything from scratch. It's not that we eat only carrots and celery, we determine what goes into our food. 

We're also finding out that it's not enough. We want to go further in our journey of all natural ingredients. We want to make our own toiletries and cleaning supplies. Emily has been busy searching online and compiling a notebook of all natural remedies, even trying some recipes out on herself.

I have to admit that at first I wasn't too excited, especially when I saw the list of ingredients I would need. When you go all natural, it seems one has to completely refill the cupboards with all new items. I also needed jars and containers to hold all these experiments. Plus, it's very messy or at least, Emily certainly is very messy. It was my mom who offered up a great solution without even knowing it. . . . small canning jars!

So over the next few weeks, I'll be posting some of the recipes like the one below for a natural remedy whether for use as makeup or household cleaner. 

Raw Honey Cleanser
Raw or pure honey is best along with either orange zest or cinnamon. Emily alternates between the two, but every morning and night, this has become her routine. It works well for acne prone skin, not fantastic, but helps a great deal. Please keep refrigerated any extras. Emily makes a small batch which she keeps in a small mason jar. 

Have a blessed day everyone.
