Black Cherry Pineapple Dish- Weight Watchers Friendly


Easy Black Cherry Pineapple Dish

While my mom was here visiting she taught me a little trick to make an easy pineapple dish that we all really liked. The bonus is that it is weight watchers friendly, too!

Black Cherry Pineapple Dish

Grab a box of sugar-free Jell-O (black cherry flavor)

and a ripe pineapple. Core and slice pineapple and lay the pieces out flat in a dish. Sprinkle the jello on and refrigerate overnight.

We all really liked it. We took it on a picnic with us!

DIY Chemical Free Carpet Freshening Powder


DIY Chemical Free Carpet Freshener

I have been on this crazy quest to eliminate as many chemicals in our home & sharing my adventures as I go! We now make almost all our bath & skin care products (you can find them for sale on Etsy)

Today I made our own carpet freshening powder to use when we clean the house this week!

What you’ll need

1 tbsp. essential oil of your choice

1 cup baking soda

mason jar for storage

We made ours with lavender. Combine all ingredients and whisk well.

Sprinkle on the carpet and let sit 10 minutes, then vacuum!

To make sprinkling easier, you can wash & use an old spice jar.

Not only did we avoid all the harsh chemicals, we added health benefits.

Baking Soda balances PH levels & research has revealed that the essential oil of lavender may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.

DIY Yourself, Handmade & ReusableDryer Sheets


Make Your Own Dryer Sheets With 2 Ingrediants

In my quest to go more natural, chemical free I made my own dryer sheets this morning! I’ve been slowly weeding out chemical laced products from our bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. There are plenty of great reasons to ditch the store bought dryer sheets.

Just a few of the many toxins found in commercial dryer sheets & liquid fabric softener.

(and remember the fragrance clings to our clothes, and you wear and absorb the chemicals 365 days a year.)

Alpha-Terpineol – can cause headaches, loss of muscle control, central nervous system damage, & respiratory problems.

Benzyl Acetate- Has been linked to pancreatic cancer.

Benzyl Alcohol- respiratory tract irritant, central nervous system depressant, & death.

Biodegradable Cationic Softeners- (used to make clothes fluffy and free of static) These toxins build up in the body over time & can damage the central nervous system.

Camphor- causes central nervous system disorders, confusion, and is easily absorbed through the skin.

Chloroform- carcinogenic neurotoxin

Dichlorobenzene- a very carcinogenic solvent used to make paint thinners.

Ethanol- on the EPA’s “hazardous waste list.”

Ethyl Acetate- A narcotic on the EPA’s “hazardous waste list.”

Linalool- causes central nervous system disorders, reduced spontaneous motor activity, & depresses heart activity.

Limonene- a known carcinogen that irritates eyes and skin

Pentane- harmful if inhaled.Can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, loss of consciousness. It is also a central nervous system depressant.

That isn’t even the list of fragrance chemicals found in them!

I made my own this morning with 2 ingredients & I really liked using them.

(Believe me I am a sucker for soft clothes that smell good and have no static electricity (especially while living in a desert with little humidity!)

All you need is some fabric scraps (colors that won’t bleed!)

vinegar, your favorite essential oil, and a mason jar.

I bought quilt squares at hobby lobby. They were $9.99 then I used the 40% off coupon on the Hobby Lobby iPhone app.

Make your own chemical free dryer sheets with 2 ingrediants

I cut them into 11 X 6 inch rectangles & folded them.

Pour 1/2 c. vinegar into mason jar & 15-20 drops of your favorite essential oil.

(we really like lavender or jasmine.)

Place the folded fabric in the jar, seal it shut, and shake it.

Make your own chemical free dryer sheets with two ingrediants

I place one in the dryer with each load. When I use them all I will just refill the jar. Our towels and clothes came out fluffy, soft, and they didn’t smell like vinegar. (That’s a smell I don’t like personally!)

Make your own chemical free dryer sheets with 2 ingrediants

There’s a few positives from doing this! I don’t miss the chemicals. (After all, our skin is our largest organ!) It is eco-friendly, we’re not contribuing to toxins in the air through the dryer vent anymore with commercial brand dryer sheets, and they are reusable!
