Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day activities!  If you’re looking to save money and be green with your Valentine’s Day gifts, look no further.  I’ve got some fun, frugal, and eco-friendly gift and date ideas.

  1. Plant a tree or flower for your love.  Include a note that says “As the flower grows and blossoms, so does my love for you.” Every time your love sees the tree, they will see your growing love for them.
  2. Make them a coupon book with homemade coupons.  Ideas for the coupons are “I’ll wash your laundry,” “One night of uninterrupted time,” or even “a date night in where I cook for you.”  It won’t cost anything but your time, and chances are the recipient will love it!
  3. Coconut oil is a great gift idea.  You can use it for massage oil, lotion, cooking, and even as an eco-friendly lubricant.  It’s all natural, works very well, and will last you a long time.  It will also provide you with health benefits too!
  4. Cook a romantic dinner at home.  Buy all organic foods and make a meal that’s really memorable.  Burn some all natural beeswax candles for ambiance.  Use red foods like steak, beets, and red velvet cake to celebrate the holiday.
  5. Go to your local health foods store and pick out some new eco-friendly bath products.  Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and even maybe some bubble bath are great presents that will allow the recipient to try them and see which ones they like.  Create a little gift basket and maybe throw in a couple new bamboo towels.

Whatever you decide to do, do it from the heart.  You don’t have to spend a ton of money to have a good Valentine’s day!

Coconut oil is well known for being rich in health benefits for people, but this product is also highly beneficial for dogs and cats as well, and for pretty much all of the same reasons it’s great for humans.

Getting Coconut Oil into Your Daily Snacking

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Unfortunately, mindless snacking can also lead to a lot of unhealthy habits such as feeding a sugar addiction. The body often craves foods and drinks that will boost energy, and sugar is usually the most readily available source.

Big Pharma want to “Protect” the Elderly from “Dangers” of Coconut Oil and Natural Supplements

Big Pharma want to “Protect” the Elderly from “Dangers” of Coconut Oil and Natural Supplements

A new study is to be published written by a psychiatrist working for a VA hospital educating other psychiatrists on how to protect their patients against the dangerous side effects from coconut oil and other natural supplements. However, with no recorded deaths due to the side effects of coconut oil or other natural supplements in recent years, and with the medical community themselves admitting that over 100,000 people a year die from their prescription drugs, one has to wonder who is really being “protected” with this advice?
