Last night I'm preeeeeeety sure I had some food poisoning. So DiGize all over my tummy, Peppermint all over my chest and some charcoal capsules came to my rescue! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Taking the rest of the day easy.

Ready to go all the way natural with your laundry routine? Today on the blog find out how I've eliminated using conventional but potentially toxic products such as fabric softener, dryer sheets, and even figured out a way to eliminate mildew naturally. PLUS I save a hell of a lot of money because I don't have to buy the sheets or detergent (FYI I make my own and just buy the ingredients for a fraction of the cost once every couple of months). ---
Spoiler Alert 🚨: I use the wool balls here called dryer balls instead of dryer sheets or fabric softener. They are quieter than tennis balls and do not have rubber or anything that could mess up the machine. PLUS, if you want to add fragrance, you can drop some essential oils on them before throwing them in the dryer with your clothes. They are less than $15 and will last for at least a year or two. ---

Let me translate the Cedarese for all of you who don't speak baby. "Mommy gives me these to keep me healthy, the Vitamin D is my favorite but I'm not a fan of the zinc or probiotic." We see a very holistic and natural minded pediatrician that I love, from birth she has recommended that we give Cedar zinc and Vitamin D for their immune enhancing benefits as well as probiotic drops for digestive health. These are all over the counter vitamin supplements made for infants and children. Having Down Syndrome can greatly increase our little ones need for immune support. So far so good& healthy!

I've figured out a way to use flatsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I fold them to the size of a large prefold and then do a twist fold. All my flat problems solved. I got these 100% cotton blankets by @bon.bebe from @burlingtonstyle.

Picking out photos from our last photo shoot with @themonarchstudio This one is so precious and perfect fit for all the back to school prep! These keychain cases carry 10 oils in the dram size and the case will clip on to a backpack! #backtoschool #naturalkids #crunchymoms #healthykids #naturalkids #naturalmama

I always thought I was pretty healthy. I ate salads a few times a week and worked out once in a while! πŸ’ͺ🏼That was good right?! NOT REALLY! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Even after Emy was born and Danny and I really started getting back in the gym consistently and meal prepping, I still suffered from chronic fatigue, anxiety, and mild depression. It wasn't until I went to the doctor complaining of a lump in my stomach, got the MRI results back, and the doctor told me I had a 20 cm ovarian tumor on my right ovary. 🀒🀒🀒
That's when I realized I wasn't healthy at all! My doctor told me after he surgically removed it they would know if it was cancerous and THEN if that were the case we would talk about staging and treatment aka chemo/radiation 😳
I remember zoning out, tears filling in my eyes, how could this be happening? I was 29 years old, I had JUST had a baby girl who I was madly in love with, my life was just beginning... this isn't fair!! Ugh. I knew enough about chemo and knew I wasn't putting that shit into my body!! πŸ™…πŸ»πŸ™…πŸ»So I started praying. I fucking prayed a lot!
Fast forward to after surgery⏩⏩ my tumor was benign! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I had a 20 cm terratoma ( a cyst with diverse tissue including hair, teeth, bone, thyroid, etc.) Can we say GROSS! 😷 I was SO thankful I didn't have cancer and to have that thing out of me but I knew I had to make some serious changes! If I kept up the same unhealthy lifestyle- what was going to prevent me from getting another one of these things or worse?
I started drinking when I was 17 and never really stopped. And into my later twenties it got worse, which is a WHOLE separate post!! πŸ™„πŸ˜‚ but for real drinking every night, and eating unhealthy wasn't getting me anywhere. 🌱So at 30 years old my health journey began! 🌱I've been through so many ups and downs along the way but I have made some major changes and I am proud of myself for that. I am not perfect in the least. Every day I wake up & I try to make the best decisions for me & my body and what I put into it because nobody else is going to do it for me! ✨Life is about CHOICES! ✨And when I started to make better choices, babes my life got so much better!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌβ˜ΊοΈβœŒπŸΌ

Hey friends, followers and loyal customers! We had to take a last-minute road trip back to Cali for some family stuff, so we will not be at any local TX Farmers Markets for the next few weekends. (But remember you can grab our lip balms at Chisholm Trail Chiro in Lockhart, and #bastropproducersmarket and of course #happychickfarms!) and for you Southen CA locals, you can find your favorite lip balms at @naturallifechiro in Fullerton! And also Dr.T's Chiropractic office on Imperial HWY in La Mirada!πŸ‘
We will be out of town for a bit, but we have our #messylittlesmiles supplies with us and will be able to ship orders immediatelyπŸ“¬πŸŒΌ Thank you for your understanding and patience!☺️

My favorite kind of dinner...throw a bunch of stuff on a sheet pan and throw it in the oven! We just finished the first week back to school and with homework and tired kids this was the way to go.

My daughter's oil collection is growing thanks to getting all of the KidScents oils FREE this month πŸ™Œ

We have been using Sleepyize for her at night & Tummygize came in clutch the other day when she was having tummy trouble. I also got her Envision because she scanned for it on the iTovi. She gets upset & frustrated when she can't do something, so this oil promotes resourcefulness & creativity.

My first vendor event!!

Before thoughtfully and conservatively building their small sustainable, eco resort, our friends Ana and Blas along with their sweet little family, performed a native Mayan ritual, blessing the land. This photo perfectly represents the beauty of the Myan jungle and the loving energy Ana and Blas have filled @lumapi with. Mark and I are beyond blessed and excited to call this sacred place home for the month of September.
We'll still be working our Tidy Thyme magic from afar-- we'll just be swapping our mountain views for jungle views. The glorious @rlherschy will make sure all your orders are shipped out while we're away!!
Until then we have some amazing things in the works here, with production in high gear while we prepare for the relaunch of our new look!! Stay tuned dear birds πŸ’•

#occasionaloracle - I don't think there is any card that could resonate today more than this one. We all know it's eclipse season, and sensitivities are more potent than ever. Now is the time to be strong, and model this strength to others through taking the high road. As much as vengeance can be appealing, and acting out is easy - it feels so much better to leave people and situations better than the way you found them. Take some time today to show appreciation where it's due, we all could use more of that right now.🐘
