Homemade Lotion Bar Recipe: All Natural and Easy to Make

Homemade Lotion Bar Recipes- all natural and made with simple ingredients

Note from Sarah: Wellness Mama is back with another wonderful post!  Be sure to visit Katie over at her wonderful blog as well!

Lotion bars are one of my favorite natural recipes to make for my own family and for gifts. They are extremely moisturizing and last longer than traditional lotion. They don’t contain any liquid so there is no tricky emulsifying and they are much more nourishing to the skin than traditional lotions.

Lotion bars are also very easy to customize to your own preference and can be used on babies and children. They have a natural SPF of about 5 which makes them ideal for outdoor workouts, hiking, or other activities where you want mild sun protection without the chemicals.

The Naked Factor is just a bonus… And a recipe (of course)!

img_9239Admittedly, I started eating paleo because I was tired of looking at my not so attractive nakedness in the mirror and I secretly and desperately wanted to be that hot mom in a bikini…..  Of course I was blind to the trillion other little health issues that plagued me; writing them off as normal.  I was blind to what eating paleo really had in store for me, and blind to the the fact that a paleo lifestyle would slowly but surely open my eyes to so many important life experiences that I would have missed out on otherwise.

Baa Baa Breakfast

I have had a few people comment about breakfast options that do not include eggs.  I know some folks never get tired of eating eggs, I being one, but I do think it’s important to have a lot of variety in our paleo diets.  With that being said, here are some suggestions to scramble things up at breakfast time, sans the eggs.

My Arugula Obsession…

I am mildly obsessed with arugula so I will hammer my love of arugula home with one and final arugula recipe – for a while anyway.  This salad has similar components to my favorite “go to” chicken salad but with the yummy smokey addition of arugula and a few other ingredients. [Read more...]

Easy and Amazing Roast Chicken

This is a recipe for a whole roast chicken that I found on Epicurious that I revised to make even easier.  It seems to0 easy to even be good but this was sincerely the best roast chicken I have ever had.

Roast Chicken

1 free range/farm raised 4-5 lb chicken

Sea salt

Preheat oven to 450. Wash chicken and thoroughly dry the chicken inside the cavity and out with paper towels.  Place the chicken in a roasting pan and generously sprinkle the entire chicken with sea salt (inside the cavity as well).  The recipe on epicurious said to “rain” the salt down on the chicken, maybe that’s the secret…. I did not tress it, add any butter, thyme, or even pepper, just the salt, and after about an hour in the oven, the chicken was crispy golden brown on the outside and incredibly tender, juicy, flavorful and delicious on the inside!  The best parts of the chicken is what we could pick right off the bones – my two year old ate most of his dinner before we even got the chicken to the table…

I served the chicken with mashed cauliflower that I seasoned with garlic powder and black pepper as well as a fresh arugula and spring mix salad with diced apples, olive oil, and lemon juice. 

Enjoy!!
