Last year we started our own compost. Its been so much easier than we would've imagined and so satisfying. As a family of 5 we only go through one trash bag a week because most of what we use is recyclable or compostable.
So far we have had 3 raspberries and 2 blueberries. They taste so much different than store brought fruit. I'm loving our little home garden. We will have a large harvest of berries soon as there are so many unripe berries growing.

Today I want to review a couple of their tonics. The tonics are used as perfumes, aromatherapy, and body therapy. Taylor's tonics are stored in blue or green glass roll on bottles to protect the natural oils. There are many different scents including: Spirit Lifter (anti-stress), Pick me up Peppermint, Cramp Ease, Earl G, Breathe Autumn, and Big Calmer (sleep). The two I am going to review are Cramp Ease and Pick me up Peppermint.
Cramp Ease is designed to be rolled on areas of inflammation or cramping to bring relief. My first thought when I took the lid off was how amazing it smells. The scent reminded me of an orange dreamsicle and it smelled so yummy. Sometimes when people think of natural products they anticipate a strong or awful scent. Cramp Ease was neither of these. The scent was so light and perfect that I could easily see it being used as an everyday perfume. I have used it on many different cramps and the relief has always been instant. My husband gets tension headaches and after rolling this on his neck his headache will quickly subside. To test out the inflammation aspect, I rolled it on some red spots of inflammation that I had on my feet. I had tried many different things to get rid of these spots prior to this and nothing gave me any relief. After just a couple of days using cramp ease at night the spots completely disappeared.
I have always loved being able to find alternative more natural remedies to ailments that we have and have been able to find that with Taylor's tonics. I am very pleased with the products and will continue to buy them. I carry these two tonics everywhere with me because I would not want to be caught without them.

The insides of the sweet pea bamboo all in one diaper are super soft. Even after many washes it has not lost any softness. The bamboo interior make this diaper extremely stretchy and easy to get a great fit. There are two rows of rise snaps allowing for these to fit from 8-35lbs. The four hip snaps also overlap to fit skinny babies or newborns. I love that each tab has four snaps because it allows for there to be no wing sag.
Bamboo is super absorbent and these diapers easily hold up to my heavy wetting son. I change him every two hours at the most typically to avoid any rash and the diaper is never fully saturated at changes. It also holds up during naps and I never get any compression leaks. The bamboo velour topper is stay dry and is soft against my baby's bum. My youngest has very sensitive skin and this is one of the few diapers that do not cause him to break out.
Sweet pea diapers are very affordable and durable. They hold up well in the wash and dry very easily and quickly. I air dry my diapers most of the time and they dry within a couple of hours even in the winter. I have had some of my other natural fiber diapers being stiff after they are air dried but this is not the case with these diapers. They are still very soft after air drying and do not need to go through a fluff cycle in the drier.
