I’m still feel a little under the weather but I’m a woman, and I can’t let that slow me down.
I’ve narrowed the list down to these gifts
I have to make around 30-35 of each thing, I’m so excited, but I’m also terrified. What if I make people sick? Or what if my presents look cheap and unappealing? What if I mess everything up and it was all a big expensive bust?
Oh well, there is no turning back now. I’m sticking to my guns and I’m going to do my best, which somehow always seems to be enough to get the job done.
Next weeks postings will be full of step by step instructions of how you can also get in on the fun and create this fun cheap gifts.
I’ll share all my tips with you. Pray for me friends, it might be a bumpy ride.
A old high school friend contacted me a month or two ago asking are an herbal detox recipe. I totally spaced out and never got it to him. He nicely reminded me at the beginning of this week and I promise I would have it to him by Friday.
I figure I would go a step further and feature DIY herbal Detoxs on my blog. I figure its right up my alley.
Benefits of Detoxing
Since we are exposed to more chemicals, poisons, heavy metals, and pesticides now that any other generation before us, and its not going to stop anytime soon.
Eating processed foods that are filled with GMOs like corn and soy that are also sprayed heavily with glyphosate poison. We also load up on over the counter medications and antibiotics that rob our healthy and our gut, and we use chemical-laden health and beauty products that have all manner of sulfates, parabens, and other toxic chemicals in them.

The human body was not meant to handle all these poisons.

Detox duration and aftermath
Detoxs can be done many ways. 24 hours, 3 days, some even last 5-10-14 days.
Whatever you decided to two make sure not to push your limits.
I plan on only drinking the detox juice and restriction my diet to only fresh raw or lightly cooked plant-based meals, such as soups, steamed vegetables, salads, and smoothes for at least the next 3 days during and after the detox. Avoid meat and anything else that is difficult to process.
Your digestive system is very delicate while detoxing so take the next couple of days to let it get used to eating food.
Remember your body is now clean, so treat it well, and feed it healthy choices. This is not the time to celebrate with pizza, fried foods, desserts and other acid forming foods, it will only cause harm to your system and impede your progress to a healthy body.
Try not to revert back to your olds ways. This is about making changes and setting you up for success
