It’s over 400 pages of DIY home & beauty products, plus home remedies. I’ve never seen a resource this comprehensive for DIY recipes and remedies, and believe me, I’ve looked.

I love having this book on hand whenever I need a quick remedy, and I can’t wait to try some of the salves and lotion recipes. Check out the Everyday Roots book here!

Creating Wealth eBook
This book is perfect for anyone struggling with health problems that has been disappointed with mainstream dieting and medicine. Catherine is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who explains the relationship between food and a balanced, healthy body. Her website Butter Nutrition is one of my favorites.
This book has helped me with fatigue and hormone issues, which I’m so grateful for. I love Catherine’s approach – instead of dieting and deprivation, she explains that when your body has everything it needs through an abundance of real food, your health will soar and your weight will balance!
The Maker’s Diet Book
This is one of the most fascinating books I’ve ever read. Jordan Rubin explains his spiral into severe Chron’s disease and how his health was restored by eating only the foods made by God and mentioned in the Bible.
Simplify Your Stress eBook
Of course, I had to include my own ebook! Seriously though, it’s full of super helpful practices to minimize stress and streamline life. These are all the things I learned during the most stressful time of my life when I was juggling chronic illness, young babies, and moving. The tips in this book will help bring peace to any chaotic lifestyle.
Natural Living Must-Haves – Best Health Products
Fresh, clean water is one of the most vital elements of good health. Unfortunately, most water filters on the market don’t cut it when it comes to purity. We LOVE our Berkey home filtration system! It filters out all the bad stuff including fluoride which most filters miss (read about the dangers of fluoride here) and leaves all the good, naturally occurring minerals. Get it here!
After our Berkley, the Blendtec High-Speed Blender is our most frequently used appliance that helps our family stay healthy. We have a healthy smoothie every day without fail – it’s the easiest way to have at least one superfood packed meal on autopilot. We love blending up fresh or frozen fruit, yogurt, collagen powder, chia seeds and superfoods in our daily smoothies.
Our next favorite kitchen item is our Champion Juicer. Highly recommended for transforming your health! With juicing, you can consume MANY more vitamins and minerals than you could just eating the fruits and veggies. For example, you can fit the nutrients from 8 carrots in a glass of about 4 oz. of juice! Perfect for anyone who struggles to get enough servings of fruits and veggies into their day. Juicing is a good starting point for anyone who wants to improve their health quickly.
After I started juicing, I immediately noticed a difference in my sleep – I was falling asleep FAST because my body was getting the micronutrients it needed. The Champion is easy to clean, works like a champ, and comes with a great warranty. Get it here.
Bend Soap Company is my absolute favorite self-care product. Best. Natural. Soap. Ever. In fact, if I could only buy one natural care product for the rest of my life, this would be it! This soap has minimal ingredients with the star being goat milk. It is super gentle, perfect for the whole family including kids/baby, and very healing. It has helped many customers heal their eczema and helped me personally with acne and scarring.
EASE magnesium spray delivers magnesium to your body through the skin. If you don’t know why magnesium is so important, check out this article. Most people are deficient in this mineral and it is vital for improved sleep, a sense of relaxation, muscle relief, and so much more. EASE is the purest formula I’ve found (the only ingredients are bioavailable magnesium and water), and I love using it before bed every night to help me sleep. Unlike many other magnesium products on the market, this spray causes zero burning, itching, or stinging.
Supplements & Superfoods – Best Health Products
Below are the supplements and superfoods our family uses on a regular basis to stay healthy.
- Organic, Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil. Good for just about anything!
- Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate. Amazing source of protein and amino acids often missing in the Standard American Diet. Can be added to smoothies, sauces, drinks, and more. Use as a far superior alternative to protein powder. It’s wonderful for your joints as well as skin, hair, and nails.
- Bragg’s apple cider vinegar. It’s basically the duct tape of the wellness world. Here’s a post that details 101 uses for ACV.
- Chia and flax seeds. We add these to our smoothies every morning for an energy and nutritional boost. They are also great mixed into baked goods, soups, and sauces.
- Manuka honey is full of natural enzymes and health properties. It’s our favorite kind of honey to use on anything from wound care to homemade elderberry syrup or super tonic.
- Himalayan pink salt is what we use to flavor our foods, and since this salt is in it’s natural form, it is full of healing minerals.
- Vital Proteins Liver Pills. An energy powerhouse, with ability to detoxify the liver and help with hormone issues!
- Cod Liver Oil. A much needed brain and natural Vitamin D boost.
- Real Food Multivitamin. These vitamins from MegaFood are impressive – all the vitamins and minerals you need which are made from REAL FOOD, not synthetics.
- Liquid Mineral Supplement. In today’s world, much of our soil is depleted of minerals. A tablespoon a day of this liquid supplement helps to replenish what is missing in your diet.
- Pure Encapsulations B Complex. Important for energy production, especially if you have an MTHFR mutation (read more here).
- Chelated Magnesium. I love this brand of magnesium. It helps me relax before bed and keep my levels healthy. Where other brands give me digestive issues, these never do. Also it’s one of the most frugal options out there.
- Vitamin D3 capsules. These are important for staying healthy the winter months when you spend less time outside.
Home & Beauty – Best Health Products
- Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap. This is what I use for DIY hand soap, body wash, + fruit/veggie wash. Stellar ingredients.
- Schmidt’s natural deodorant for whenever I don’t have time to make my own. It works great and I love all the different scents (Schmidt’s is also Mr. Nurture approved).
- Magnesium lotion and bath epsom salts. This duo is amazing for that much-needed relaxation boost. Magnesium is also vital for many systems in the body – read more here.
- I really like the Plant Therapy brand of essential oils for price point, quality, and their kid-safe line.
- Making my own cleaning products is fun, but if I don’t have time or just want to change things up, I’m a huge fan of the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day line of cleaning products. They are natural, safe, and smell DIVINE!
- Bentonite healing clay. This detoxifying clay draws toxins out of the body and is great to use in DIY face masks, baths, homemade toothpaste and homemade deodorant.
- Himalayan salt lamps are soothing and great for relaxation.

The past 3 years, my Amazon Prime membership has been worth every penny. The money I’ve saved on gas, the stress I’ve avoided by not having to shop with my kids, the fun of shopping in my jimmies: none of these are to be overrated. Also, the fact that they have pretty much everything you could ever need (with the exception of perishables in most places) is pretty cool. The prices are comparable to what you would pay at the store, without the work! I love getting vitamins, supplements, and natural products there. I’m also a pretty big Kindle book junkie.
