Having better wellness is a daily practice and choice. As you choose healthier options more often, cook your own food, make your home remedies, and experience better digestion and energy as a result, it’s natural to want more.
Chanel your inner artisan and take your health literally into your own hands with these easy home remedy recipes.
As you know, preparing your own food is always best. You know what goes in it- from the oil used to the amount of salt added. You’re less likely to be fooled by nutrition labels or subject to the hidden kitchen of your favorite food store or restaurant.
Milk substitutes on the grocery store shelves are often full of additives, sugar , and very little actual nut. As a result, you wind up consuming something much less nutritious. We like to make our own almond and coconut milks. It may take a little extra effort, but they taste damn good and can be added to anything.
This probiotic rich mix of cabbage and salt is uber beneficial for your gut . You can usually find great raw, organic brands at the local health food store or Whole Foods. Although challenging, making your own is possible at home. Our favorite recipe is from our friend, Robyn Youkillis’ new book Go with Your Gut .
Additional minor ingredients you can add (make sure your mixture is mostly cabbage):
Thinly sliced apple or pear, shredded beets thinly sliced onions, garlic, finely chopped
Caraway seeds, dried juniper berries, peeled and grated ginger-root.
Note: You’ll want to use a fresh, clean fork every time you serve your kraut or whole brined vegetables. This keeps the unique bacterias in your mouth from mixing and multiplying in your jar.
As we all know, most of us are deficient in Vitamin D and we know that the use of sunscreen blocks our bodies’ ability to absorb it efficiently. Not only that, but many sunscreens are laden with toxins. Although making sunscreen from scratch may sound like a big undertaking, it’s actually quite simple. There are many natural oils that contain a natural SPF–coconut oil, almond oil, and carrot seed oil. Here’s a great recipe adapted from our friend Dr. Axe.
It’s no secret that traditional bug repellent contains harmful toxins and chemicals. Making your own ensures that you not only protect and nourish your skin, but you also keep those bugs at bay naturally.

Keeping skin hydrated is key to anti-aging and keeping the skin’s outer barrier strong and resilient. There are products right in your kitchen cabinet that will do the trick without the inclusion of harmful chemicals. We love this blend of shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter (all super home remedies in their own right) to keep skin nourished and glowing. It’s kind of an all-purpose home remedy for a lot of skin issues .
