Angelic DIY Liquid Laundry Detergent

DIY Liquid Laundry Detergent Recipe

I've always wanted to try to make my own laundry detergent but I really wanted something simple.  I had read that you can use the Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash by itself as a laundry detergent, but I really wanted something with a little more....ooomph! After reading several different versions of recipes consisting of castille soap, I decided to try my hand cooking up a batch myself.  It was really simple and only took me about 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Supplies needed:  1 cup HOT water, 1/2 cup Borax, 1/2 cup Washing Soda, and 1 cup Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash (Castille Soap) Directions: Boil 2 cups of water (or bring it to almost boiling, you want it to be really hot). In a bowl or jar, dissolve Borax and Washing Soda in 1 cup of really hot water.  You don't want any powder left in your mixture.  Allow to cool. Once cool, slowly add 1 cup of Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash. Gently stir the mixture but do not shake or you'll ... [ Read More ]

Angelic Baby Shower Gifts for Mom & Baby

Mama & Baby Care Basket

Ask my friends, I don't do traditional baby shower gifts.  I rarely even look at someone's baby registry because I know exactly the types of items that the new mom will swoon over. Even if they are not planning on using cloth diapers, I usually give them just a little touch of cloth in their gift.  I always give them a copy of Changing Diapers book by Kelly Wels and I usually highlight a few of my favorite sections.  With the book I usually try to give them just one cloth diaper so they can touch it, feel it, and maybe even use it for one of their new baby photos (because they are just so much cuter in pictures than disposables).  Yes, I have friends who have never used their cloth diaper, but I hope that it will find it's way to a mom who will show it some love. Next up, I like to shower the new mom with some angelic gifts from Earth Mama Angel Baby.  Most people forget to give the mom things that are just for her and her changing body.  Regardless of if the mom is having a ...

Lavender Vanilla DIY Foot Spa Treatment with #EarthMama

Lavender Vanilla DIY Foot Spa Treatment #EarthMama

Summer is in full force around our house AND I'm squeezing in work while both kids are home with me.  Some evenings I'm so exhausted that all I want to do is take a nice relaxing bath before bed; but our tub is out of commission at the moment.  I'm so glad my youngest saw a commercial for a kids play foot spa because it reminded me that I had one stored away in my closet.  Earlier this week after a very stressful day we dusted it off and I decided to introduce my 5 yr old to the world of at home foot spa treatments!  I mean, who doesn't love a bubbling hot water soak on their tired achy feet? I wasn't sure how relaxing this was going to actually be with my 5 yr old but we gave it a try.  I anticipated that she wouldn't sit still long and for the water to be all over the floor, so I prepped our area with a few towels to protect the floors.  I filled the tub up with hot water and a few pumps of Earth Mama Angel Baby Calming Lavender shampoo and body wash.  That's all you need!  There ...
