Headache & Migraine Relief Roller

1 Comment


You may be one of the lucky few who never suffer from an occasional headache or migraine. If that’s so, you can also use this essential oil combination for sore, tense muscles, and nausea.


But, for those of us who do have those dreadful headaches, we’re always happy to have something we can either take or put on to help us get through it. I like to rotate hot and cold packs, take a shower with a few drops of essential oils, and rub a little of my Headache & Migraine Relief on the back of my neck, temples, and forehead.


I find the scent amazingly calming and it’s full of oils that help with pain, inflammation, and nausea.

And although these rollers are very small, just a tiny bit goes a long way. High quality essential oils are extremely concentrated and if you choose to use any of my oil recipes on your children, do so with caution and dilute even further.

Essential oils have some really amazing benefits. I’m always excited to research them on my phone app or in one of the huge manuals I purchased. There’s an oil for everything! And why wouldn’t we want to try something pure and natural before we head to the doctor just to be given medications with a laundry list of unsettling side effects? Another huge benefit is that you can make your own remedies using the oils that most suit you and your family.

People are very particular about the oils they use. When you make your own combination remedies, you don’t have to worry about wasting money on oil mixtures you may not like. There are many oils that I don’t like! It’s nice to have a stock of my own favorites to get creative with.

2015-12-12 18.36.05

I use essential oils in lotion, body oils, lip balm, in our humidifier, in my plants when I water, when I clean, in my vacuum cleaner, on wounds, on acne, for body aches, in the shower to ease brain fog, for nausea, for headaches, for mouth bacteria, for colds, for disinfecting, for air purifying, when I change the bed sheets, in the laundry….you name it!


Here’s a list of the oil benefits in my Headache & Migraine Relief Roller:

German Chamomile is said to easy nervous tension, ease upset stomach, eases muscle tension, is anti inflammatory, and promotes rest.

Vetiver is said to help calm the body, reduce stress, reduce nervousness, improve circulation, and is anti inflammatory.

Eucalyptus Globulous is said to ease muscle aches and pains, boost the immune system and is anti inflammatory.

Lemon is said to reduce stress, improve circulation, reduce anxiety, it’s anti inflammatory, promotes rest, and is detoxifying.

Peppermint is said to give a cooling effect, is calming, relieves pain, is an anti inflammatory, helps with nausea and muscle tension.

Frankincense is said to ease nervous tension, ease anxiety and depression, it’s anti inflammatory, and stimulates the immune system

Slumber Bedtime Potion



I’m happy to say I survived four days of granola and nuts. I don’t get along with nuts and grains very well.

We have a love hate relationship.

I love them, and they hate me.


I tied and labeled the last of it a couple days ago and after snacking on them two days in a row, by bed time I had grandma ankles and had to pry my rings off my fingers with lotion.


But I have to admit, old lady ankles and swollen fingers were worth a few handfuls of candied almonds and caramelized walnuts and pecans.

2015-12-12 15.40.30

 I’m thankful they’re tied up now though because I’m not sure I could keep my hands off of them otherwise.

2015-12-12 16.17.00

With the granola wrapped and ready to go, I’m moving on to a relaxing bed time oil you can make for your feet and hands. There’s nothing better after a quieting tub than slipping into your favorite nightwear, crawling into a cozy bed, and giving yourself a little foot and hand massage.

2015-12-12 16.33.28

It works the parts we use most during the day, and it prepares your body for rest.

2015-12-12 16.38.02

You could use anything for the massage of course, but I’ve created something extra special for you.

2015-12-12 16.46.41

A combination of soothing, wonderful smelling, stress reducing, pain relieving, sleep enhancing, essential oils.

Rest well!


High quality essential oils are extremely concentrated and if you choose to use any of my oil recipes on your children, they should be diluted even further with a carrier oil. For children under 12, I would simply do a 1/4 teaspoon of carrier oil (jojoba, olive, coconut) to 1 drop of the mixed oils.

Pie, Glorious Pie & A Few Other Holiday Must Haves


2015-11-25 14.39.01

We had other foods on Thanksgiving of course that are my favorites, but I’ll start with the pies. There aren’t many people on the planet who dislike pie. I can’t even fathom such a crazy thing.

2015-11-25 12.11.43

I absolutely love that we can have food allergies and sensitivities and we can still enjoy all types of fabulous meals and desserts. In fact, that’s why I originally started this blog. To prove to people that you can dramatically change the ingredients in your diet and still love the food you eat while you gain back your health.

2015-11-25 13.24.34

I don’t know about you, but I was not willing to say goodbye to pie so I figured out numerous ways around it. First, the crust is to me, the absolute most important part. Good filling with a bad crust is a bad pie and we don’t want that.

My crust must be buttery, flaky, without weird texture or sour taste, and must be able to be used for both sweet and savory dishes. I’ve tried many recipe variations and this one meets all of my requirements and gets rave reviews every single time I use it. The Mama’s Flour Mix is the key. The recipe makes 4 crusts and can easily be frozen for future use. You can find my recipe for Pie Crust From Heaven HERE.

2015-11-25 12.03.49

So let’s move on to the actual pies. Pumpkin pie…oh how I love pumpkin pie! It’s incredibly easy to make gluten and dairy free.

2015-11-25 14.36.11

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie

1 – 15 oz Can of Organic Plain Canned Pumpkin

1 – 13.5 Can of Full Fat Organic Coconut Milk

3 Organic Eggs

3/4 Cup of Organic Coconut Sugar

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pinch of Sea Salt

1 Pie Crust, rolled out with GF flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pie crust in pie plate and set aside. Measure all other ingredients into a large 6 Cup glass measuring cup or large bowl that is easy to pour from. Whisk well until all ingredients are fully combined, making sure the solidified parts of the coconut milk are fully combined and smooth. Place a baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven and then place the pie plate on the sheet. Carefully pour the batter into the crust.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees (leave the pie in the oven!), and bake for 35-40 minutes until set. I like mine to have just the slightest jiggle in the middle when I take it out. It will set more when it’s out of the oven. If you overcook it, it will crack.

I also made an apple pie with a pie crust bottom and a streusel top. The best of both worlds in one pie if you ask me! Also extremely easy to do gluten free and dairy free.

2015-11-25 13.20.09

Apple Crumble Pie

For the topping:

1 Cup of Gluten Free Rolled Oats

1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Sugar

1/2 Tablespoon of Unsulphured Black Strap Molasses

1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/2 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Cup of Mama’s All Purpose Almond Flour

6 Tablespoons of Cold Dairy Free Butter 

For the pie:

1 Pie Crust rolled out with GF flour

5 Fuji Apples, washed & dried, peels on

1/2 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of Ground Nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/3 Cup of Organic Coconut Sugar

1/2 Cup of Mama’s All Purpose Almond Flour

About 6-8 teaspoons or so of Dairy Free Butter to dot apples 

Prepare the pie crust in the pie pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. For the topping: measure the sugar and molasses into a bowl and stir with fork until sugar and molasses are combined. Measure in the rolled oats, sea salt, cinnamon, and flour and stir to combine. Add the 6 Tablespoons of cold butter and lightly and quickly (as to not melt the butter) combine with fingers until it forms a “crumble”. Set aside.

The sugar and molasses should still be relatively dry after being combined.

The sugar and molasses should still be relatively dry after being combined.

Core the apples and slice thinly into a large bowl. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt, and butter and stir well to coat all the apples. Pour the apples into the pie crust and arrange so there are no holes or gaps.

2015-11-25 12.05.05

Dot the top with the 6-8 teaspoons of cold dairy free butter. Top evenly with the crumble topping.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 60 minutes, I covered mine with foil at 40-45 minutes to keep the crumble from over browning. Test with a fork to make sure apples are done, they should have just a very light bit of texture.

Another absolutely fabulous thing you don’t need to go without when dealing with food allergies is whipped cream. This time when I went to grab my jar of homemade GF vanilla extract, I realized it was just full of beans and no extract. I used the insides of several beans and went without extract and it resulted in the best and most flavorful coconut milk whipped cream I’ve ever made.

2015-11-26 08.09.25

Vodka Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

*Place Cans of Coconut Milk In Fridge Overnight, or if you’re in a hurry, a minimum of 4 hours

3 Cans of Chilled Full Fat Organic Coconut Milk

About 1/2 – 3/4 Cup of Organic Coconut Powdered Sugar, whiz up in a blender or Nutribullet to resemble powdered sugar

8-10 Vodka Soaked Vanilla Beans, scraped about 3 teaspoons (or, 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract if you don’t have the beans)

If you’re using vanilla beans, slice down the middle and scrape into a small bowl.

2015-11-26 07.43.54

Whiz up the coconut sugar until it resembles a powdered sugar texture.

This is prior to blending.

2015-11-26 08.02.50

Carefully scoop out the solid half of coconut milk out of each can and place it in the bowl of an electric mixer. Reserve 3 Tablespoons of the liquid coconut milk for the whipped cream and refrigerate the remaining milk for smoothies at another time (If you’re using vanilla extract, you may not need to add any additional coconut milk). Using a whisk attachment, beat the coconut cream until medium peak. Add the powdered coconut sugar in two parts, beating in between. Add the vanilla bean seeds and beat until thick and the consistency you like in your whipped cream. If it’s too thick, add coconut milk about 1 Tablespoon at a time until it reaches the consistency you desire. Don’t add it too quickly, as it will thin out very fast and there’s no turning back.

Next to pie, I would have to rank stuffing as my next favorite part of any holiday meal. By itself or along with giblet gravy and mashed potatoes…I could just swoon every time I eat it. Pure comfort food at its best. You can go HERE for my Million Dollar Stuffing recipe.

Lastly, there’s the turkey. We had a bit of snafu with ours this year, you can read about it here. The farm we purchased it from responded to my note right away and we are being given the option of a gift certificate or a refund. An organic 14lb turkey costs right at about $100 with shipping, so I’m thankful for their courteous customer service and as this was the first turkey from them that we’ve ever had issue with, I will definitely try them again.

The turkey was a bummer but I did make a fabulous rub for the skin. Very flavorful and aromatic. To me, one of the best parts of any roasted bird is the crispy, salty skin!

2015-11-26 09.15.46

Turkey Herb Rub

Nurtribullet or Good Blender

About 1/8 to 1/4 Cup of Sea Salt (you will likely have some left over for other meals)

3 Fresh Sage Leaves

1 Large Sprig of Fresh Rosemary, stem removed

About 1 Heaping Tablespoon of Fresh Thyme Leaves

Place all ingredients in a blender or Nutribullet and blend until herbs and salt are completely combined.

Once I stuffed the turkey, I covered it in chilled dairy free butter and then rubbed a very generous amount of the Herb Rub all over the turkey. Delicious! 

Store any unused Turkey Herb Rub in an air tight container. But, allow it to dry out for a day first as the fresh herbs add a bit of moisture.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and remember, with a little research and willingness, we don’t have to suffer or feel like we’re going without just because of food allergies.

Homemade Organic Super Green Powder


2015-06-22 09.56.42

I couldn’t be happier with our weather this summer. Heck, even spring was fantastic! The abundant sunshine and high temperatures have been great for the garden (and me!). I can’t believe I haven’t been gardening in raised boxes my entire life. From this point forward, I wouldn’t do it any other way.

2015-07-06 06.58.49

It just makes it SO easy. I haven’t had to pull even one weed of course, watering is a breeze, and all the plants seem to really enjoy being nestled together. Two thumbs up for square foot gardening.

2015-06-24 08.49.28

The only small battle I’ve had is with beetles on my zucchini and squash plants. By the time I started to notice the bugs and figured out what was happening, the plants quickly went downhill. I’ll probably lose the zucchini. It has yet to produce anything edible.

2015-07-15 09.02.56

But I caught the yellow squash in time and we’ve been enjoying them grilled, in smoothies, egg scrambles, and salads.

2015-07-15 09.04.24

We’ve already gone through three plantings of spinach and two waves of different types of lettuce.

2015-06-24 08.19.22

2015-06-24 08.42.03

One wave of beets and carrots. The kale is abundant and I love how it just continues to grow as I snip.

2015-07-15 09.03.39

I planted more beets and carrots yesterday and another wave of snap peas in hopes that we’ll continue to have great weather and I’ll have a vegetable crop well into late October.

2015-06-23 16.01.16

I planted all heirloom tomatoes and they are growing like crazy! After a small issue with blossom rot I added organic bone meal to the soil and now all is well.

2015-07-15 09.03.09

The Sunsugar tomatoes were the first to begin to ripen about a week ago.

2015-07-15 09.03.27

Very sweet and wonderful in our salads.

2015-07-05 13.03.55

The other tomato plants are just now beginning to ripen. Fingers crossed they won’t all ripen at once or we’ll be up to our ears.

2015-07-15 09.03.19

2015-07-15 09.03.57

I’ve already dried several batches of herbs.

2015-06-12 06.08.05

2015-06-23 13.21.28

2015-06-23 13.18.49

Not wanting to let carrot tops and beet greens go to waste, I also dried those along with kale, swiss chard, and spinach.

2015-06-14 08.36.16

Simple to do and an easy way to add super nutrients to almost anything. In fact, it dawned on me that I could make my own Super Greens powder to add to smoothies, soups, stews, or even baked goods. You probably already know that super green powders sold online and in stores are quite pricey for the good ones. Mine is about as inexpensive as you can get. The price of a packet of seeds basically.

2015-06-22 09.47.25

All I did was dehydrate the greens I wanted in my powder, put them in a baggie to crush them, and then whiz them up in the Nutribullet.

2015-06-22 09.50.00

Such a gorgeous, healthy, color.

2015-06-22 09.52.33

Incredibly easy and inexpensive. A 1/4 cup of dried powder holds the contents and nutrients of at least 12-16 cups of fresh greens. A tiny bit goes a long way.

2015-06-22 09.56.25

Easy gardening, easy dehydrating… high yield happiness.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.

Healthy Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats



If you’ve been following my blog for a while you already know how important it is to get and keep our gut microbiomes healthy. Aside from soul and spirit, your gut is the epicenter of your body. If it’s unhealthy (candida, leaky gut, stress, etc.), you’re unhealthy.


Well the same goes for your pets!

You can feed them special pet probiotics, or make your own probiotic treats, it’s very easy.


But remember (!!) dogs and other animals can’t eat a lot of things that we can eat.


Here’s a few lists to check so you can make sure you’re choosing the right fruits and vegetables to feed your favorite fur babies.

Fruits & Veggies For Pets

10 Best Fruits & Vegetables for Dogs

Dog Approved People Food

All you need are a few fruits and vegetables, plain greek yogurt, mini ice cube trays, and a blender. It’s that simple. I used 1 Cup of plain greek yogurt, about 1/4 cup spinach, about 3/4 cup of blueberries, 1/4 cup mango, and one very ripe frozen banana. You can check the lists and add anything in any combination you may think your pets will enjoy.


Put it all in a blender, whiz it up, and then pour it into mini-ice cube trays. I put mine on a cookies sheet and stuck them in the freezer for two hours to set before removing them from the trays. Then, I shook them out into a storage container and popped them back in the freezer where they’ll last at least a month.

It’s very convenient to just grab a couple to feed your pets each day. Their small enough that they can be eaten quickly without making a mess. If you have really small pets, I would cut them in half after removing them from the trays.

SO easy and your pets will love having a special, healthy treat added to their diet!


Here’s a list of foods NOT to feed your pets:

Foods You Should NOT Feed Your Dogs

Dangerous Foods Your Dogs Should Never Eat

What Foods Are Toxic For Dogs

Activated Seed & Nut Trail Mix


One of the many benefits of paying attention to the food you put into your body is of course, better health. One of the downsides to doing a lot of research and reading about health, food allergies, and disease is that all of that information can be extremely overwhelming. Soon, you feel like there’s nothing you can eat that won’t upset your body in one way or another. Well, now you can add raw nuts and seeds to that ever-growing list.


I’ve known for a while that there was negative information “out there” about eating raw nuts and seeds and how they are very hard on our digestive systems. They were created to survive in harsh conditions and then be able to sprout when the sun and rain makes an appearance. When we eat them raw, the phytic acid that is beneficial for their survival is not beneficial to us. It binds to minerals in the gastrointestinal tract, causing irritation and doesn’t allow for nutrient absorption. When your stomach and intestines are continually being irritated by foods your body cannot digest or foods you are sensitive or allergic to, your immune system suffers greatly. And when your immune system suffers, your entire body is affected.


You may be thinking, but I feel fine when I eat raw nuts and seeds! But here’s the issue. Our guts are in a battle. They’re in trouble. Your gut is the center of your immune system and ours are a mess which is proven by the astronomical amount of humans with auto immune diseases, cancer, hormone imbalances, IBS, Fibromyalgia, mental disorders, stress disorders, and all kinds of other issues. It’s a domino effect. The more we ignore our guts and continue to put things in them they can’t tolerate, the more out of balance we become. We may not have that immediate reaction of “Oh! What I just ate made me really ill.” But little by little your body becomes overwhelmed and soon you feel “off” or “wonky” or “achy” or “fluish” more than you think you should, or you get sick a lot with colds and other things like migraines, strep throat, seasonal allergies, sinus infections, swollen glands… That’s your body telling you something is wrong. By really paying attention to what you feed it and how you treat it, you can go a long, long, way to feeling better.


Help your immune system, help you. And for crying out loud, don’t believe everything you hear in the mainstream media. For years we’ve been reading about how fantastic raw nuts and seeds are for our health. “Eat a handful of almonds a day! Add nuts and seeds to your salads! Add them to your morning smoothie! Use nut flours to bake with! Use nut butters, they’re excellent for your body! Get your protein from nuts and seeds!” All of these statements have truth. But only if you’re able to digest the nuts and seeds properly and actually benefit from their nutrients. Otherwise they’re actually harming you, not helping you.


Soaking nuts and seeds and then dehydrating them is simple. SO simple. I bought this dehydrator on Amazon. It was $73.79 (free shipping with Prime) and is very versatile. You can use it to dehydrate nuts and fruits, make fruit leather, make meat jerky, dry herbs…all kinds of things. And it’s incredibly simple to use, clean, and store.



It’s BPA free and even has temperature settings already sorted out for you on the lid. The heating element is in the lid and covered so there’s no messy clean up like the old dehydrators with the exposed heating element on the bottom.


It’s relatively quiet. Sounds like a low fan. I’ve run it all night for two nights in a row now with zero noise irritation or issues. It has 5 shelves and you don’t have to rotate them for even drying.


You can Google how to soak raw nuts and seeds or use this resource like I did. Super simple and straight forward.

I soaked raw cashews and raw sunflower seeds because that is what I had on hand. Last night I also soaked and dehydrated raw pumpkin seeds. The resource link above will give you an easy timeline guide. I try to time my soaking so that I can dehydrate over night.


The cashews needed 18 hours of dehydration, while the sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds only needed about 6-8 hours.

They have a nice crisp, snap to them when broken in two.

Once the nuts and seeds have been dehydrated you can use them for nut and seed butters, grind them for flours, use them in smoothies, make your own nut milk, snack on them, and bake with them. Just allow them to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Activated Nut & Seed Trail Mix

1 Cup of Activated Organic Raw Cashews 

1/2 Cup of Activated Organic Raw Sunflower Seeds

About 1/2 Cup of Dried Cherries

About 1/2 Cup of Dried Blueberries

About 1/4 Cup Organic Raisins

About 1/2 Cup of Organic Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1/2 teaspoon of Organic Ground Cinnamon

About 6 grinds of Pink Himalayan Salt

Toss to combine and store in an airtight container.







Homemade Toner & Fabulous Face Cream



I’m in body care product making mode.

This seems to be a great time of year to do it and typically when I run out of all my favorites.

Yesterday I made gluten free, dairy free, non-toxic, fantastic for you Facial Toner.


Love it.



If you look carefully, you can see the “Mother” floating around in there. The “Mother” is made up of very beneficial living enzymes. You need to make sure you buy the good vinegar that looks cloudy and is organic. “Regular” vinegar manufacturers filter all of the good stuff out so they can have a prettier product.


I also made my Fabulous Face Cream.


I don’t know about you, but I’m 46 and my skin needs all the moisturizing and healthy products it can get.


It’s been abused by my love for the sun, stress, and unfortunately Lyme Disease likes to take a toll in every area, even your skin.


These are such relaxing projects, I can’t even tell you. It’s so much fun! Smells fantastic of course. Doesn’t break the bank like department store $$$$ creams, doesn’t load your body up with chemicals and toxins, and you can share the healthy love with your friends and family as gifts for the holidays. It’s win-win.

Have fun!
