20 Creative DIY Herb Gardens

20 Creative DIY Herb Gardens

With Spring coming around the corner, I’ve been thinking of doing a DIY herb garden so I can have fresh herbs to use when I need it.  This is a also a great way to save money so I don’t buy too much at a time.  When I get herbs from the farmer’s market (especially the thai basil and mint), they always come in a big bunch and I only end up using small portion of it before the herbs go bad and it is so wasteful.

I live in a townhouse and don’t have a big backyard to plant a garden…so I needed some find some creative DIY Herb Garden ideas.  I think my favorite idea is to do a hanging DIY herb garden using mason jars.  I had some Kohl’s cash that I needed to use up and found the New View Mason Jar Wall Plaque that will be perfect to use for my DIY Herb Garden.  I picked up two sets and I’m very excited to try it out!

Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box Review + FREE Diffuser ($49 Value)!

Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box March

Guys!  I am so excited to share this new company that I found  a couple months ago – Simply Earth!  Simply Earth provides natural home products including pure essential oils.  They use only oils that are derived from the best GMO-free plants grown in the best locations and their oils are also GC/MS tested by a 3rd party to ensure they are 100% pure and untarnished.

I am still fairly new to essential oils and up until now, I’ve only been using it in my diffuser.  I have been wanting to try to make my own natural products but I haven’t had time to look for recipes and purchase the items needed to make them.  And then I found Simply Earth!  Whoohoo!

Tasty Brand Organic Snacks Review + Free Samples and Sale!

Tasty Brand Organic Snacks Review
If you have been looking for a delicious and organic snack…I definitely recommend you try Tasty Brand Organic Snacks!  OMG!  😍 These are sooooo delicious!  I heard some great things about the cookies but did not try it until recently.  The folks at Tasty Brand were generous enough to send me 20 Snack Packs containing their vanilla and cookies ‘n cream flavors.  These look like oreo cookies but let’s just say, they are WAY better than oreos and it’s organic, vegan and non-GMO!  I love that it’s not too sweet and the creamy inside is so yummy!  Between the two flavors, the vanilla is definitely my favorite!

Product Review: LivRelief Natural Pain Relief Cream + FREE Sample!

Product Review: LivRelief Natural Pain Relief Cream

If you are in our Natural and Organic Facebook group, you know I started down this journey of eating more natural and organic foods due to some health issues.  Not only did I change my diet, I also sought more natural and alternative ways to try to make myself healthier, including seeing a holistic doctor, doing acupuncture and using Chinese herbal remedies.  I’m not a big fan of Western medicine, although I will admit that there are some advantages.  However, if there are alternative or natural remedies available versus taking drugs, that is always my preference.

I recently was given a full size natural pain relief product from LivRelief. I had never heard of this natural product before, so I was excited to find out more about it. I received the sample last week and was eager to try it out on my back and shoulders. These two areas have always bothered me since I work in front of the computer a lot (I use to work as a software consultant, so you can image the hours spent working on the computer). To ease the pain, my acupuncturist taught my husband how to do cupping therapy on me and that would help with some of the discomfort.
