Natural Thursdays


Hello and welcome to the Natural Thursday Blog Carnival! I’ve teamed up with Laura from Green Living Ladies (and Laura’s Gluten Free Pantry) to co-host the blog carnival! That means that if you link up to either of our blogs it will show up on both – YAY!

It is my hope that this carnival will be a good resource for those trying to go more green, reduce the amount of chemicals they use and are exposed to, or even just looking to save some money by using common household cleaners or remedies.

It is also a good place for fellow bloggers to share their posts. I started a new Pinterest board called ‘Natural Thursday Blog Carnival’ where I will pin every entry. But, you don’t have to be a blogger to participate!!! If you have a favorite natural cleaner or remedy, tell us about it in the comment section! Every month I will highlight the previous months most clicked entry as well as my favorite. Also, don’t forget to come back in a few days and check out all of the amazing links and ideas :)


To Participate In The Carnival:

~ You can submit any kind of natural remedy, cleaner, beauty product, etc. As long as it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals and is not an advertisement. You can also submit health articles related to being gluten free, autism, or chemical sensitivities. Gluten free recipes are welcome, but the main focus will be on natural diy products.

~If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a comment telling us your favorite natural products, diy cleaners, remedies, etc…

~If you link up, please provide a link back to this site or to Green Living Ladies. I will not highlight anything that is not linked back. (ex: “This post is part of Natural Thursdays’ somewhere on your page)

~Please link directly to your post and not your homepage or another carnival.

Note- By linking up you are giving me permission to use your submitted photo via social media or on this site the following month if it’s selected to be highlighted.

Last Week:

I LOVED Regena’s comment about using Frankincense for mosquito bites, I’ve tried it too and it really works!!!  She said, “I had read recently that Frankincense Essential Oil was good to put on masquito bites so I tried it on my granddaughter. She had been eaten up and was miserable. I dabbed a little on each bite and asked how they were at bedtime and she said they were gone. Got up and checked her the next morning and sure enough no sign of any bites! I’m a beliver!

Firefly Fields Living shared this DIY After Sun Spray – this sounds good after a long day in the sun!


My Submission:

Activated Charcoal! My sister told me to use this as a natural teeth whitener and I’m LOVING it! Just open up the capsule and pour it into a small bowl, dip your toothbrush in, and brush your teeth with it. Some people also use it by mixing 1/2 tsp of the powder with 1 Tbsp. of water and swooshing it around for about 30 seconds, but I just brush my teeth with it.  I’ve used it 4 or 5 times now and can really tell a difference… but be prepared to brush and floss your teeth afterwards to get all the black out of your teeth 🙂
