Natural and Noteworthy: Spider Plants

Heard a crash a little while ago and two puppies came darting out of the sunroom, back legs trying to outrun the rest of their bodies. Among other things, it reminded me of a blog post I’d started writing on the subject of this morning’s mishap: the spider plant. Officially Chlorophytum comosum, it is also […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Rosehip Seed Oil

I’ve never been much of a trend follower.  In fact, trends have a habit of getting on my nerves … unless they happen to coincide with my own tastes or wishes, that is.  Maybe that makes me a trend hyprocrite.  Either way, I recently stumbled upon a beauty trend that has fallen right smack into […]

Why I Began My Journey to the Natural Kind of Life
