Homemade Honey Antibacterial Balm

Homemade Honey Antibacterial Balm to the Rescue! My kids love getting scrapes and bruises. Well, more like they love to PRETEND they get scrapes and bruises and ironically all of them require a band aid and some of our homemade honey antibacterial balm (or...

The Kula Mama Holiday Gift List

It’s that time of year again!   If your house is anything like mine, holiday gift lists are being re-drafted each day, mostly by the kids! Each year I think I’m going to start early on the shopping and the homemade gift making.  And each year I wait until December and...

Homemade Children’s Cough Syrup

Man I dread those middle of the night wake ups. Don’t you? No mom likes to hear the sound of her child coughing.  Especially when the coughing starts in the middle of a peaceful slumber.  But a child’s cough knows no manners and middle of the night wake...

Homemade Sanitizer Spray

It always happens this way…. My kids finally find something to play together and peace reigns over the house.  For about 5 minutes.  Then I hear it. The telltale crash, a short, silent pause…and then…tears.  It’s a bump.  A scrape.  A bruise....

DIY Coconut Sugar Lip Scrub

As winter lingers on and on… our skin begins to feel the effects of the cold, dry winter air. Believe it or not, it’s almost February and Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Maybe you’ll actually get out of the house with a loved one if the...

Homemade Beeswax Candles

Some days it ain’t easy being a non-toxic mama.  It often feels like I’m the biggest Debbie DOWNER when it comes to products in the home.  In fact, I even took the Christmas lights off the stair railing the other day because my preschooler kept touching...

DIY Spray Deodorant with Magnesium

Making my own deodorant has been a long and winding road.  I grew up using a certain well known antiperspirant…baby powder fresh.  No matter what any natural guru will tell you, I found moving from antiperspirant to store bought deodorant a hard change.  It took...

Zen-tastic Homemade Play Dough

This summer is the summer of living out of our suitcases. People keep asking me how it’s going since we left Argentina in June with a few suitcases and no plans to move into our home until the end of August. My response is always the same: “It’s hard...

Pretty-in-Pink Homemade Lip Gloss

I have a son who LOVES lip gloss… and I love this about him.  Ironically, my daughter won’t go near the stuff and it amuses me to no end.  I think my children were born this way—my son has always loved lotions and potions and my daughter prefers no...

Better Than Botox Facial Scrub

Better Than Botox Facial Scrub Currently we are living in Argentina and while the experience has been great for our personal development, life experience and overall enjoyment—it’s been terrible for my beauty regimen.  Quality non-toxic products are hard to source...

DIY Homemade Eczema Cream

Childhood eczema can be very uncomfortable for your little one.  In my last article about eczema (holistic remedies for childhood eczema) I explained that the cause of eczema resides inside the body, and the cure for eczema does not come from an external cream.  For...

5 Minute DIY Body Scrub

I’m sure there are a few of you out there who, like me, scramble at the last minute to cover your holiday bases.  Two days ago I realized I hadn’t done anything for my friends here in Argentina.  I wanted to give them a little something, preferably homemade, to...
