    I found a recipe online for making a natural scrub cleanser. It was recommended for countertops, sinks and toilets.

    I've noticed that my hair lately has been breaking a lot more frequently-- the shower drain is filled with it after a shower! I don't have any bald spots, but I am concerned that my stress levels might be affecting my hair. I use to use a strengthening shampoo and conditioner that I bought...

    Ok, so it's getting to be that time of year. Has anyone thought about what we're putting on our (and our kids') skin? I've thought about it. A lot. I have been needing to get myself down to the store to "get me some" new sunscreen this year..... I'm done with the junky, toxic sunscreens of...
