Jace’s Secret


Meet Jace aka “Bubbie”.  He is our first grandson and the first boy in this family to come along  in quite awhile.  We aren’t ashamed to admit that he is a bit spoiled.  One thing for sure though, he WILL follow a long line of girls who advocate for chemical free bath products. Since day #1, our “Bubbie” has used a special goat milk soap formulated specifically for him.

I remember testing day very clearly.   In other words,  mommy approval day in our household.   My  youngest daughter, Emma aka mommy, was present to do the ingredient & scent approval.  Keep in mind, only the finest essential oils are used in the making.  And, WOW – Fabulous Final Product stamped with a BIG mommy & grandma approval.    With just months to go before Jace would make  his arrival,  his very own delicate, yet powerful soap, sat on the curing rack like a fine wine waiting to be perfected.

Up until now, we have kept this little secret to ourselves, but as the saying goes, “it’s too good not to share”.  Jace’s skin is so delicate that the thought of using bath products with chemicals makes us cringe.  Jace’s bath time was always followed with a blend of chamomile, lavender and  ylang ylang essential oils, in our signature product, Natasha’s Premium Whipped Body Souffle.

Jace was born with eczema on his back.  We found it out shortly after he was born that his father and uncles have the same skin condition on their backs.  After several attempts to perfect a product that would have all the healthy skin advantages as our Body Souffle, we found a great combination of Shea butter and other quality, chemical free butters and oils that protect and nourish his skin the way it needs.  In short, we intend on on pamering our “Bubbie’s” skin.  This isn’t to say that his Auntie’s Body Souffle wasn’t helping or doing it’s job, but after playing around with a few combinations and amounts, we found something that seemed to help his skin long after bath and bedtime applications were applied.  His other grandma says “Jace always smells so good” and we know why 😀.   Between Jace’s Bath-time Soap and his Good Night Whipped Shea Blend, he is one happy baby!!

I think about the Huggies commercial – Hugs are the secret to keeping a baby happy and healthy. Huggies® believes in the power of hugs as well. Hugs strengthen the baby’s immune system, hugs improves brain development……Watch commercial here
SoapSense also believes in happy, healthy babies. Did you know Most children are exposed to a scary number of chemicals on a daily basis, and even babies are born with chemicals in their umbilical blood. Too many to count products and shampoos contain chemicals that are not safe for baby. Did you know that many baby shampoos (including J&J) have some of the worst chemical ratings and baby oil is  liquid petroleum oil with some added (artificial) fragrances. How scary is that?

Whatever you put on your baby’s skin is being absorbed into the bloodstream – actually, 60% of whatever you put on is being absorbed.  Parents and grandparents beware!!!

Quote from Dr. Edward Group, “Most people actively try to minimize the amount of toxins that enter their body. They eat good food, they drink purified water, they breathe purified air, and some even take added measures to detoxify their body. However, what many people don’t realize is that toxins can be absorbed through their skin. No time is this more important than when deciding what kind of soap to use. Given the industrious process used to produce many of the commonly known soaps, it’s not a surprise that most contain questionable chemicals, dyes, and fragrances… questionable substances that many of us would be better off avoiding. If you want to minimize the “casual toxins” you and your family are exposed to, consider using Natural or Organic bath products.”

Now that you know why we are sharing Jace’s Secret, we hope you will share his secret with your family and friends too.  It is just too good and beneficial to our skin and health to keep it to ourselves.  starting with good,  clean,  early skin care, might just be one of the biggest preventative measures you take in your child’s life.  Although, we may be sharing Jace’s secret with you,  his two grandma’s aren’t quite willing to share him yet 😃😉😊. But you can certainly enjoy the Happy Healthy Baby Pictures with us!

It starts in the kitchen

They say Exercise is only 20% of your fit program and the other 80% belongs in the kitchen. Organic cereal from Aldi’s and some fresh blueberries seemed to be the perfect combination for a healthy start to the day.

Following breakfast, I was eager to push the limits on a morning walk. Today marks three weeks since I had foot surgery. I’m so thankful for a good recovery and even though it is still a bit tender, I was able to get a good 6 miler in.

I never forget the water consumption that is required for a healthy diet either. Half your body weight in ounces. I still have to remind my self daily. That is a lot of water for me! After consuming nearly 50 oz of water it was time to prepare some lunch.

I juiced up some cucumber, celery, kale, ginger, banana, strawberries, carrots and some ice-cubes my NINJA.

Somewhere between 5pm and 6pm my husband brought home some fried fish and biscuits from Red Lobster. I did good, I only consumed one piece of fish and two of those delicious biscuits. That wasn’t so bad–so I thought. However, just moments ago I enjoyed a nice bowl of Butter Pecan ice cream. I seriously emptied the bowl. I did resist the urge to lick it like the way I did when I was a kid. 😄

Knowing that I burned 1,400 calories during my workout and I need a good 1200 daily not to mess up my metabolism, I'm patting myself on the back for being fit and healthy today. After all, One day at a time and it'll all work out.

One foot bruised

OUCH ~ It actually looks worse then it feels.

It appears I will be another week with stitches and that means another week of the foot hanging out of the shower. It is amazing the number of uses a Walmart plastic bag can have.

Morton’s Neuroma can be painful, but lucky for me recovery is temporary.

Homemade SoapSense

As a homemade natural soap-maker, I have a variety of homemade, wonderfully scented, colorful soaps throughout the bathroom. I have at least eight bars in the shower. It is like Christmas every morning and every other time throughout the day I find a good excuse to re-shower.

I started my morning with Nadia’s Goat Milk Soap, shaved my legs with Cindy’s Citrus and washed my face with Lavendar Breeze. After that I decided to clean the house. I felt sweaty and dirty once the house was spotless. Off to the tub I went. This go around called for my ENERGY bar. I felt even more awake and energized after a second shower. This called for a trip to the gym. I knew it would be a great workout. I was energized! After all, I try to exercise each day. Sometimes for my health and sometimes because I need another good…
