Want to know a secret?
I don’t floss my teeth.
A friend once shared that every time he goes to the dentist, they tell him he should floss his teeth every day. His response? “Okay.”
Every time they tell him, and every time he does nothing about it.
I feel the same way! I know I should floss my teeth, but it’s just one of those things I’ve never worked into my routine. As a busy mom of three, it often feels like a good day if my teeth get brushed at all, let alone flossed.
I do know that good oral health is super important for overall health. And, especially in light of my root canal dilemma, I’ve been looking for an easy way to support my teeth and gums.
This mouthwash with essential oils is just the ticket! Here’s why I love it:Read More
UPDATE: Y’all, I love this perfect sugar scrub so much that I’ve improved it even more…and I made a little video to tell you all about it! Guess what: My new and improved scrub recipe is super scoopable! Insert happy dance.
Everyone loves a good sugar scrub.
Even nine-year-old boys, apparently. Older Bro has completely taken over any and all jars of sugar scrub placed in our shared upstairs bathroom. I guess boys like a little pampering, too!
Sugar Scrub is a fantastic trick to keep up your sleeve.
- Last minute gift for mom, teachers, a friend? Sugar Scrub.
- Rough, dry skin on your hands or feet? Sugar Scrub.
- Grubby, dirty gardener’s hands? Sugar Scrub.
- Paint all over your hands after a painting project? Sugar Scrub.
- Grease or sap or other hard-to-remove gunk on those hands? Sugar Scrub.
You know what the best part is? It’s so easy to make.
Know your options
Every mother-to-be should know her options for childbirth.
- Some mamas plan for a regular, natural birth but find out late in the game that a c-section is required.
- Other mamas know early on their delivery will require surgery.
Either way, the more you know–and the more you prepare–the better your experience will be. Take these steps now, and be prepared for a natural c-section should the need arise.Read More
You know your yellow tooth is an eyesore when little children, including your own, begin to ask….
What’s wrong with your tooth?
Why is your tooth yellow?
The truth is, my ever-darkening front tooth is dead. According to my former dentist, it requires a root canal. Several years ago, I might have agreed. In fact, over fifteen years ago, the tooth next to it received a root canal.
Root canals are performed every day. They’re no big deal, and are considered safe by the American Dental Association (among others).
But are root canals really safe? Today I’ll explain why, for now, I’ve chosen to live with my yellow tooth instead of having it filled and capped.Read More
