Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil

by Shanna, 1 Comment »

A few weeks ago we woke up early and drove to a park 20 minutes from our house, where we met up with the scheduled white passenger van bearing our order of butter oil (and maple syrup). There’s a bulk foods company set up in the area that schedules specific pickups for specific foods like these. It’s kind of funny, but we’re sort of used to funny by now. They order huge truckloads for cheaper prices, and then they sell stuff to people like us. So we got a better price on the butter oil we’d been wanting, and that made the whole trip worth it to us. Here’s why we did it.

Using Essential Oils

by Shanna, 3 Comments »

We first started hearing about essential oils last year, right around the time that the degrees of separation between you and someone you knew selling oils were shrinking at a shocking rate. We were already familiar with oregano oil and how it is a natural antibiotic of sorts; it has long been our household go-to anytime either of us feels even the slightest cold or infection coming on. And I think we may have owned peppermint oil already for some experiment Tim was attempting. But last year was when the ever-widening world of other oils opened up to us, and today it’s kind of crazy because everybody’s talking about them. In fact, essential oils are so big right now that it’s rare that you don’t know someone talking about them, either offering to host a party at your house or telling you how much lavender oil will change the way you sleep. There’s a good reason for this: word-of-mouth spreads so much faster when the thing you’re talking about actually works.
