  • Why we diffuse essential oils

    Jane Louise 10th April 2020

    Why diffuse essential oils? I used to burn candles all the time. Candle light is so pretty and makes a room feel cosy. But then I read something about burning a candle was like smoking a cigarette because of the smoke and candle wax ingredients. Now I’m not sure that is actual fact but it did get me thinking. There is no real benefit to burning a candle other than…

  • Homemade Beauty Balm

    Jane Louise 29th March 2020

    My all purpose balm recipe I made this little pot of balm and have found it really useful recently. After planting all my seeds at the weekend my hands were really dry, I slathered this on and they felt so much better instantly. It takes make up off, softens lips, works as a night time skin treat, soothes ouchies, softens cuticles….the list is long. It’s made with simple ingredients and…

  • Granola

    Jane Louise 22nd November 2019

    I made my own granola this morning. It tastes really good. I mainly made it for the boys, while I try and reduce the amount of processed cereals they eat. I’d be meaning to have a go at this since I saw the lovely Laura over on @thehomelyhaven make some. I kind of made up the recipe but it went something like this: 2 1/2 cups of oats 1 cup…

  • Homemade soft scrub

    Jane Louise 6th June 2019

    Since ditching toxic cleaning products and swapping to natural versions I’ve been on the hunt for a good scrub for my sinks and bath tub. This one may be gentle but does the job. The essential oils used have antibacterial properties and have great cleaning power. It also works well for brightening up grout too. INGREDIENTS + 2 tbsp castile soap (I used non scented Dr Bronners) + 1/2 cup…

  • Re-useable surface wipes

    Jane Louise 6th February 2019

    Truth be know. I used to use a packet of antibacterial wipes a week. I was obsessed with cleaning everything down with them. Its only since I began this journey into simpler living that I learned those wipes are really not good for our family nor the environment. They’ll be sitting on some landfill right now and we breathed in some not so great chemicals from using them. But its…
