Coconut Honey Orange Popsicles

Is it HOT at your house today? My kids have been bugging me to make these "pop sizzles". If you want a SIMPLE, delicious and healthy treat to cool you down a little, give these a try!  They are a favorite at our house.

Ingredients:
1 popsicle tray & sticks
1 cup organic orange juice (no pulp is my style)
1 cup coconut milk
3 tsp raw honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5 drops Spark Naturals Wild Orange essential Oil

DIRECTIONS:
Mix ingredients well and evenly distribute into Popsicle tray. Add sticks.
Freeze & Enjoy!

You can make these with any berry or watermelon too! When using berries or watermelon I switch to lime or lemon essential oil. They are a wonderful healthy treat!

Remember, through the month of May only, you can save 20% on all the deals of the month, with coupon code: jillbewell

How Safe are Your Cosmetics?

Three years ago, I began throwing away everything that touched my families skin that was toxic in any way.  Gone!  Bye-Bye!  See you later!   That includes all of our toothpaste, sunscreen, body lotions, shampoo and conditioner, hair care products, and make-up.   Why?  Because I have worked too hard on what we put into our bodies NOT to care about what we put onto our bodies.  AMEN?

What You Need to Know About Cosmetics & Chemicals (Infographic)

There are virtually no regulations in the US regarding cosmetics.  Therefore, the products we buy and use daily are FULL of harmful chemicals and ingredients.  This guide, "Quick Tips for Safer Cosmetics," is from one of my favorite organizations, EWG (Environmental Working Group).

 

Those facts are why I switched to Beautycounter.  I have shared about their mission and heart to only produce safe and beautiful products many times on here.   I love that they never hide any ingredients and post the EWG rating on every product.
