Two of my favorite essential oils, sweet orange and lemon:


So you can make my favorite floor cleaner (among other things)!

My favorite salt:

Flake salt from the Murray River in Australia. It's has a light pink color and contains lots of wonderful minerals. I'm addicted.

Calendula Salve. Made by me, today! (So you can heal 101 skin issues):

(This picture is not of the one I made today!)

A jar of my favorite oil: Coconut Oil

So you can cook healthfully and try it out as a moisturizer!

  15. Hello,

    I have loved reading your posts. I liked your facebook page and shared on twitter. would love to read anything you post. Always uplifting and practical!

  16. Wonderful giveaway, always have a bit of envy of all of you who make there own products lol, nothing better than homemade or organic/ natural items!

  17. I have just started reading your blog in the past few weeks. I really enjoy the information as most of the topics you blog about are things I am trying to do. In the last 2 years I have gotten rid of 99% of my house ‘cleaners’ and started making my own as well as lotion, laundry detergent. I fell in love w/ coconut oil about 8 months ago as a moisturizer. I have not used it in cooking (besides a few bread recipes in place of butter). I am also attempting to channel my inner artist by taking up sewing. Thanks for all your work!

    I would love to have a Better Mom series. I am in a rut right now – being mid summer w/ a 4 and 2 y/o.

    Thanks again!

  18. I just came across your blog. The gift basket has so many wonderful items in it. I will definitely be making the Calendula salve. I have tried other lotions with Calendula as an ingredient and know that it has healing properties and smells great.

  19. *Laugh* I actually have calendula oil steeping right now from the recipe I found on this site (I’m doing the slow method just because I’m busy right now with appts for kids :). I would LOVE to win this. We’ve switched to all natural products (like home made variety natural), organic and gluten free, so anything at this point to save money would be so nice (I’ve seen my grocery budget triple…and I do a coupon blog…sad huh?

    Thanks for the wonderful blog. It’s been a GREAT source for figuring out how to do all of this stuff myself πŸ™‚

  20. Don’t take on too much, I’d go for once a month on the better mom series. I know how those blogging series can get overwhelming sometimes *laugh*.

  21. I really appreciate the series on being a better mother. However often you are able to add to it, I know I will enjoy it! Thank you for taking the time to do this give away! I love all of these things!

  22. I would love to win these items. I’m looking for more ways to make our lives healthier and less complicated.

  23. I would love to win! I would also like to see more posts on becoming a better mother! :)))

  24. xoxox.
    I miss you.
    p.s. I won’t really kiss you, but all o’s wouldn’t look right.

  25. I love your blog! And I’m in need of some essential oils…the hubs hates the smell of vinegar, which is the only think I use to clean!

  26. I would love to see more about your Becoming A Better Mother series! That’s something I’m definitely trying to work on myself! :o)

  27. This is such a great giveaway! Many of those items are on my own “wish list”!! And, I love the Becoming a Better Mother Series. I wouldn’t mind seeing an update weekly or even more often (if you have the time!!)

  28. What a precious website! What a great giveaway! Lots of really unique things πŸ™‚ I like you on FB and subscribe via email. A better mother series every week would be super! Blessings πŸ™‚
