What is Grounding and Does it Work?

Have you heard of grounding?  Me either until I went to a retreat and before we started to learn for the day, one of our teachers took us out to the backyard to put our bare feet in the grass.  At first, I'm going to be honest, I thought it was a strange idea.

How to make your Own Hand Soap in 2 Minutes with 3 Ingredients!

How to make your Own Hand Soap in 2 Minutes with 3 Ingredients!
Before we get into the hand soap recipe let me tell you a quick story.  A few years ago when I was cleaning right after I brought my first born home from the hospital and NICU; I started to feel light headed and my chest was tight.  It got me thinking about what I was cleaning with and how these ingredients were effecting my family, especially my growing baby. What I found out woke me up and I moved forward with making changes.  I have not looked back because when I did this for my family it helped us start to feel better, be sick less often and our immune systems became stronger than ever before. I want my children to continue with these natural alternatives because it does make a difference for their bodies, generational changes for their children and honestly the world.

One of the easiest changes I made was making our hand soap.  It literally takes me 2 minutes and I just keep what I need on hand all the time to make it when needed.  You only need 3 ingredients to make this soap.  


DIY Hand Soap Recipe
Mix Straight into the Soap Container 
1/4 cup Liquid Castile Soap-I get mine at Thrive (Dr. Bonner's Unscented)
3/4 cup Distilled Water
5-10 Drops of Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils (I usually use the Young Living Thieves for it's power)
Foaming Hand Soap Container- Grab this one here.

So easy and quick! There are no synthetic fragrances either.  For us this means no more constant headaches, immune systems being suppressed and skin irritations.  I also have peace of mind knowing that I am not possibly contributing to long term health issues for our family.  I know that this is not in my complete control but I do have choices I get to make for my family that are in line with my beliefs for our health.  This is one change you can make to help you move closer to a place of wellness that is possible.
