In our pursuit of living frugally and naturally over the years with a growing family, having a “Mama’s Toolbox” of sorts has been imperative. Over time, we also relocated into a more remote area, with limited access to healthcare resources (especially natural ones).

One of the most challenging aspects of being a homeschool mom right now, is probably my preschooler asking, “Please do school too, Mommy?”
Each day goes much smoother when I have options, simple supplies/resources, and some fun ideas to keep him busy, entertained, and learning!
He is loving learning how to read, count “huger” numbers,

Whether we’re fighting off illness, making homemade cosmetics, cleaning the house, or just adding to our quality of life, essential oils play an integral part of our family life. Just walking through our home this morning, I noticed those little bottles tucked into various rooms!
