Links for the Weekend

Here’s what I am reading up on/experiencing (and the new recipes to try out for natural health items):

Bentonite Clay Toothpaste – recipe and video tutorial by Bulk Herb Store – I have been using Bentonite Clay recently to help safely remove toxins in the last months of my pregnancy. Read up on the amazing properties of this clay and how it attracts toxins and heavy metals to it, binds them, and flushes them out without having them circulate through other organs. I have also been reading testimonials of ladies using this to alleviate morning sickness! Very neat.

How to Make Stevia Syrup – by the Herb Gardener – Buying tinctured stevia is so expensive. I am really looking forward to trying this one out.

Homemade Borax-Free Dishwasher Detergent – by My Healthy Green Family – I am about out of dishwasher detergent and didn’t want to order another round from Amazon; but the last recipes I tried for dishwashers didn’t work. So, I am pretty happy to have come across this! And especially being Borax free, since Borax is toxic and not something I want to be using in my cleaning. Ordered my citric acid on Amazon tonight. Started the citrus vinegar, too. Since my boys LOVE making themselves lemonade (lemon juice, raw honey, and water), we have TONS of organic lemon rinds that I just hate to waste! What a great way to recycle them.

Lastly, we attended the Weekend to Remember Marriage Getaway by Family Life Ministries this weekend. It was amazing! I had such a wonderful time with my dear husband. If one comes to your area, it is definitely worth the investment!
