Natural Beauty Routine: Oil Pulling

Over the past few years, I’ve noticed oil pulling trending within health and wellness publications. Since I’m all about investigating healthy practices that promote a clean lifestyle, I jumped at the chance to try this ancient practice. In this video, I discuss what oil pulling is and the presumed benefits of adding it to my natural beauty routine.

DIY Non-Toxic “Green” Counter & Glass Cleaner Product, Pretty Wellness TV, Episode 12

When I first went “green” with household products, I researched a few days on the internet and then spent several hours at Whole Foods. I enjoyed sharing my adventures learning about the importance of using more natural ingredients with far less chemicals. However, I wish I would have stumbled upon this super quick and easy DIY non-toxic counter and glass cleaner product earlier. It takes a minute to make, uses only two ingredients and works on counters, glass and even produce.

Enjoy our new one-minute “How To” videos. This week, we demonstrate how easy it is to make a vinegar and water cleaning solution.

Let us know if you would make your own cleansers knowing it’s cheaper and easier than buying the pricey brands?

Healthy Holiday Travel Tips: Pretty Wellness TV, Episode 8

During my childhood Thanksgiving road trips, my sister and I built small forts in the backseat, hung Barbie dolls out the window, and made frequent snack stops. We typically sat in tons of traffic on our way to Chicago, so I also listened to my Michael Jackson, Madonna and Violent Femmes (yes, I had some awkward years) soundtracks over and over again while snacking on my secret stash of gummy cola bottles. In addition, we always whined for rest stop sweet treats. So, by the end of the eight-hour drive, our bodies would crash from all the carbs.

Now that I have a child, I often think about packing smart, so that whether we are traveling on the road or from airport to airport, we have healthy options available. All it takes is a few minutes of planning and a little space in your bag.

We are here to help you prepare with this week’s Wellness Wednesday episode.

Please share with us a comment or two about your silly childhood road trip memories.
