{review} Buttons Cloth Diapers




I want to update everyone on some of my favorite cloth diapers that we still continue to use on a daily basis. There are probably 3-5 brands that I keep in our stash and use on a daily basis. One of them that I highly recommend is Buttons Cloth Diapers.

Herbal Tincture Label template {free printable}


I created a printable label template for my herbal tinctures. Simply download the word document from Google Docs, open it, and insert the common name, part used, and botanical name onto each label. Print and fill out the remaining info by hand before taping (I use boxing tape) to your tincture bottle. Enjoy :)

DIY Baby Bum Relief Spray


A few weeks ago, my 8 month old baby woke up with a horribly painful looking red bum. She was fussy and grumpy (I'm assuming its because her bum hurt). She has never had a diaper rash before. Even though I made sure her nappy was changed as soon as it was wet or soiled her red bum soon escalated and by noon it was so bad she looked like she had sores on her bum. I knew I needed to act fast and get this under control. I pulled out my essential oils and some other home remedies and concocted this baby bum relief spray. It worked so well that by bedtime most of the redness had gone away and she had just two small areas that looked chapped. I continued to use the bum relief spray and some herbal healing salve that I made a while ago and by the following night (day 2) everything was completely cleared up. I consider that a win in my book.
