Toxin Free Body: Exercise That’s FUN!

I’ll admit it. Exercise is NOT my strong point. I wish I could say I was incredibly disciplined in this area of my life, but I’m not. I have a million excuses, which are easy to find when you’re a busy Mom! (Does chasing your 18 month old who’s headed for the toilet count as exercise?!) Growing up, I was a competitive gymnast, and worked out 5 days a week for 3 hours, in addition to competing on the weekends during “meet” season. I would have never thought someday I’d struggle to exercise even 10 minutes a day! It’s easy…

Toxin Free Body: Perfect Organics Review

“You are going to LOVE it. Everyone raves about it!” my sister said emphatically. “Really?” I thought. “Rave about a lip balm? Ok….” Thoughts of Carmex and Burt’s Bees floated through my mind, and as beloved as the latter product is, I couldn’t quite say I would RAVE about it. But my sister assured me I would love this new lip balm intensely, so I promised to give it a try, and pass on my new love, or dislike, for it to you all! And let me just say she was right. I still can’t believe I feel so strongly…

A great way to get a little luxury in your routine is with Dr. Bronner’s organic castille soap! I have only tried the lavender, but it is truly luxurious. Made with organic oils like coconut and olive oil, and essential oils for the fragrance, it leaves skin soft and smelling very clean. I love it so much, it is something I look…

Toxin Free Body: Our Favorite Sparkling Mineral Water

Here’s a tip of the day: if you want a refreshing drink that’s not soda, try mineral water! It feels “carbonated” and makes other drinks, like juices, taste bubbly when you combine them. I don’t care for the taste of mineral water by itself, but my husband loves it. I do love it mixed in with some organic apple juice though! Try it for yourself and let me know if you like it! Our favorite brand of sparkling mineral water is Gerolsteiner.

Toxin Free Body: Why You Should Always Brush Your Teeth

Here’s some food for thought for you: Did you know that when you sleep at night, your body releases toxins from your liver, and that they come out coated on your tongue? ( I know, it’s not a pleasant thought, but your body has to get out bad stuff somehow!) And did you know that if you wake up and take a drink of water, or swallow, you reintroduce all those toxins into your body that your liver worked so hard all night to eliminate? Interesting, huh? So make it a point to brush your tongue every morning as soon…
