What does Connie make? Natural and Organic Bath & Body Care Essentials along with Organic Herbal Teas. Scrubs, Herbal Salves, Body Oils, Bath Salts, Dream Pillows, Syrups, Tooth Polish, Perfumes are just a few of the products Connie whips up. She uses pure, certified organic essential oils and herbs to scent and color her products. You won’t find any harmful chemicals inside.
Her Lip Balms made from a base of organic butters, natural beeswax and organic vegan oils, was the first product I ever purchased. In Lavender Mint flavor. It is soooo yummy. But do you know what even sounds yummier? White Chocolate. Yep, that is a lip balm flavor. Maybe you like a little color on your lips? Get her Perfect Pink Lip Tint.
Next came the Sugar Scrub. Once you try this, you’ll never buy a cleanser from the store again. Use on the entire body ~ even on delicate facial skin. The sugar serves as a gentle exfoliator that whisks away the dead skin cells making way for the nourishing oils to do their job. Finally, the gentle castile soap lathers and cleans your skin beautifully. I have to share all the different kinds with you.
Grits and Coffee ~ (with finely ground grits, coffee and almond oil)
I could go on forever but one more thing I want to cover – Herbal Syrup – which is basically a super concentrated tea to aid in the healing of common colds, coughs and other mild ailments such as chicken pox, eczema, allergies, and to help boost immunity. This was a great find for me because in our house we don’t use pharmacy/over the counter drugs unless absolutely necessary so finding a herbal based remedy to help with our symptoms was much needed! And it TASTES good 🙂
Now we have to ask Connie ~ Are you a crunchy mama? (But I think we already know the answer to that don’t we 🙂
I suppose that overall I am a crunchy mama, but not 100%. I never really got the hang of the sling thing and gave cloth diapering a good college try but it didn’t last. Gentle discipline is definitely important to me, we do not spank and ~try~ not to yell, but, hey, I’m not perfect. We are a simple, Christian family and I do homeschool my kiddos and cherish every moment we spend together.
I most definitely question many conventional medical practices and believe that prescriptions drugs and vaccines are money, not health driven. In our family we use whole foods as medicine and include supplements such as Cod Liver Oil, and various herbs to remain healthy and stay away from the doctor’s office. We also use homeopathic remedies, chiropractic care and massage as “medicine”.
I will be experiencing my second home birth in February with my 3rd child and whole heartily believe that women are meant to birth naturally with little to no medical intervention. Having had both a hospital birth and a home birth, I cannot imagine setting foot into another hospital to give birth. Long story short ~ at home I felt empowered, relaxed, comforted, loved, nurtured, respected… in the hospital I felt hurried, worried, scared, defeated, belittled.
