Time for Spring Cleaning!

nettlesdetoxblog

I absolutely love springtime.  The promise of new life, everywhere we look. The volatility of the weather, and how all four seasons can happen within a single hour.  Those first few warm days, where the Magnolia blossoms eagerly begin to bud between my dog Bodhi’s morning and evening walks around our neighborhood.  There is an inescapable vitality in the air that inspires me out of Winter’s sleepy lull and makes me want to… CLEAN!?!

11 Reasons Why….You Need a Bath!

slide3

Who has time to take a bath anymore?  It might not feel like you do, but making time for relaxation is important!  And taking regular baths, instead of showers, is not only more relaxing, it’s also better for improving your overall health. Here are 11 reasons why you’ll want to resurrect bathing as part of your weekly self-care routine.

How to stay cool naturally on hot summer nights

cowgirl_summer_breeze-min

Staying cool on hot summer nights can be a challenge, especially for us temperate climate folks in the Pacific Northwest.  We often create crazy cooling rituals like opening our windows and blinds from dusk until dawn, then closing them during the heat of the day. Our homes are littered with fans and occasional window A/C units. And some of us just give up and grab our camping gear and head for the backyard or basement to try and sleep. But what most of us don’t think about is taking a bath!

A tepid bath is a great way to cool your core body temperature before bedtime and connecting with the wisdom of Mother Nature can help even further.
