I’ve spent my fair share of time standing in the organic aisle at the grocery store, reading and comparing labels. Most times, with a crying baby at my feet. I’d pay a ridiculous amount of money for my ‘natural’ shampoo; only to bring it home and find out it was still laced with the toxic chemicals I was trying to avoid. I was getting more and more frustrated with wanting to trust these companies that were claiming to be natural, but was feeling consistently lied to.  It wasn’t until I met with a lady about a work from home opportunity that my eyes were truly opened. She began explaining about formaldehyde in toothpaste and fibreglass and sawdust fillers in my favorite laundry detergent! What??!! I met her to learn about how she was earning residual income from home around her young kids. I wasn’t expecting to be bombarded by all this new and somewhat scary information. So, as she continued to horrify me… lol. I began to think that this may be my solution. So, I became a customer with her wellness company and ordered a few products to try. The following month I ordered a large kit full of cleaners and shampoo, lotion… and even organic crackers!


Remember that crying baby? Well, she was now able to follow me around while I cleaned the house; even hanging over the edge of the bathtub while I scrubbed it!! As the cold weather came, so did my sons horrible eczema; as it did every year. But this time we were armed with a new tool. The lotion. I had little expectation for yet another product. After years of fighting with the ugly scales and redness, sending the poor boy to bed with socks on hands trying to soak in yet another greasy concoction in hopes of some relief, we were pleasantly surprised with this one. On the third day of using this new contender, we had such success that my elated son was jumping up and down in the kitchen saying excited “I finally have normal hands!”  This is the best sound to any mothers ears! We are into our fourth winter with no issues on his hands; what so ever! He gets dry hands like anyone else and then uses the lotion; maybe once a week. Of course the fact that our home is no longer a mix of chemical products in every room and our clothes and bedding are no longer full of irritants; might have something to do with it too.


Your home is your haven. You should feel safe and protected in the place where you spend your time relaxing with your family and friends. You shouldn’t have to worry about what’s in the products you are using on yourself, that the cleaners under the sink are out-gassing or that your child may have an allergic reaction to the laundry soap you bought on sale.

Removing a mole or skin tag naturally


Those pesky little things can be annoying and unsightly. I did visit my doctor about the one on my face and one that my son has. She was not concerned medically about them and seemed to have no interest in removing them cosmetically for us.


I had heard about and seen pictures documenting the removal of a mole with Apple Cider Vinegar. It took me a long time to work up the courage to try it myself. I chose a small, easy to reach one to practice on.



Step one was to ‘grease’ the surrounding area. Vasaline would work well. I used the petro-carbo salve from Watkins, cause that is what I had on hand. Then, I dipped a q-tip into the ACV and pulled it off the stick. (I used raw Braggs brand apple cider vinegar)

Place it  precisely over the mole and cover it with a band-aide. Do this before bed and remove in the morning.

I waited a couple nights and did it again. 4 applications over the course of a week.

As you can see in the above picture… this mole was right by my bra strap. So it was a bit of an irritant.

And the final pic after it was all healed up.

All done. Just a smooth small scar.

So there you have it!! It can be done safely and with little trauma 🙂 The area was a little itchy and irritated, but no biggie. I was surprised at how fast and effectively it worked. So it seems very important to protect the skin around it, or I suspect you would have some peeling etc. going on.
So, good luck on removing your unwanted extra embellishments 😉
