CoroCalm

At my appointment with my naturopath in November, I told him that I was still having palpitations. He prescribed CoroCalm, 20 drops, 2-3 times a day. I was having fluttering, skipped beats & tachycardia (fast heartbeat). I started taking CoroCalm on 14 November. By the 3rd day, I noticed a huge improvement. There was a … Continue reading

I remembered seeing this natural remedy on Pinterest (I can’t find the pin right now, I’ll link it later when I find it) ***Found it! Mix 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon into 1 teaspoon of raw, organic … Continue reading

Scrubby Bathroom Cleaner

I love making my own household cleaners. When I saw this recipe for ”scrubby bathroom cleaner”, I got excited. I’ve been using baking soda, vinegar & salt for years & was ready for something different. I memorised the recipe before I went shopping. I only needed the Dr. Bronner’s soap. I made the cleaner as … Continue reading

Skin Brightener Update

I posted about a baking soda skin brightener about 3 weeks ago. I’ve been using it every morning for a few days. About a week ago, my husband said my skin looked clearer. Two days ago I noticed that my skin looked brighter! Yesterday my sister said ”Your skin looks so white!” I’m not sure … Continue reading

My First Pinstrosity

This time, I combined two ideas I found on Pinterest. One was freezing orange slices in water in a muffin pan, to make your punch bowl look nice. The other was boiling water before freezing it to get clear cubes (instead of cloudy). I decided to try these out so the passionfruit iced tea I … Continue reading

Skin Brightener

When I get my face threaded, my skin turns beetroot red & sometimes bleeds. I wish I didn’t have to get that done, but the … Continue reading

Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir

We’ve had some illness around here lately.  Pneumonia, sniffles, upset tummies.  Not sure what I’ve got but it’s not terrible.  I’ve been hearing about the benefits of apple cider vinegar for years but was hesitant to to try them because I’m particularly fond of the taste of ACV. But then I found this Sweet Apple … Continue reading

The Burgers!

I finally made these sweet potato burgers. They were super YUMMY!!  Even the Complainiacs ate them without complaining!  And they complain about 99% of what they eat, no matter who makes it, what’s in it, they’ll find something to complain about.  Li’l C ate very slowly & reluctantly.  Everyone who knew what the burgers were … Continue reading

Homemade Floor Cleaner

I made this recipe.  I used it in the kitchen & the bathroom.  I used it last Friday & the bathroom floor still looks great!  The kitchen, of course, gets more traffic.  Plus it gets food spilled on it daily.  But it looked great for a day or so! I keep thinking I added borax … Continue reading
