Busy Bees Make Yummy Honey!

I'm a busy bee here at Appreciating Health and I'm so excited to be.  I'm not sure if you seen my new shiny Events Page, I'm pretty proud of her, there you can stay up to date with all Appreciating Health's happenings. 

EcoParent Magazine

I'm so pleased to announce that I have partnered with a fabulous Canadian magazine.

So what does that mean for you?  Well if you join one of my classes like Baby's 1st Year, Toddler Times or the Juggle then you get a free one year mailed subscription.  Or if you sign up for a consultation then again you get a free one year subscription.  Of course you most likely want to be a parent , it truly is a fabulous magazine and the people running it are super kind, friendly parents.  I truly believe in empowering the next generation with knowledge and I want to leave as little of a eco foot print on the planet for my son so he has  a fighting chance at a bright healthy future (healthy earth)


Also following the eco baby train The Spray Away in 2oz form is coming to a LittleEcoFootPrint

Mommies you should totally sign up for this box, its like Christmas at your door step once a month.  What exactly is it well... it's eco-friendly products for mom & baby. LittleEcoFootprint is a monthly subscription curated and delivered to your doorstep featuring 5 of our favourite, highest-quality products selected for baby and you.  To be in that category makes me blush with excitement.  A couple of weeks ago I was in London Ontario and was able to drop the Spray Away off and meet the owner Kristy.  What a nice eco friendly mommy.


Also the Sprout Classes have changed locations.....

Sprout Right Classes

 This past weekend I held the first Toddler Times class and so far it's been a blast.  Not only am I teaching the oodles of information to the mom's, I am learning from them as well.  Saturday is the fun cooking portion of the program.  The students (awesome mommies) get to make some yummy & healthy toddler goodies to take home and let their little loves enjoy. 

For my next set of classes I have changed locations to the New Life Midwives in Bowmanville.  The classes start in September, the 20th for Baby's 1st Year and the 21st for Toddler Times.  I hope you can join the fun

If you don't want to wait I have added a little something.  The Sprout Right classes are now being offered as a private one on one in home series and as a privately hosted group program, these classes will be qualified for a group discount, depending on the number of attendees, please contact for rates. 

If you know of someone having a baby and would like me to do a condensed version of the baby's 1st year... say the 1st 6 months at a baby's shower then I'm your women.

July 10th - Appreciating Your Summer Skin

I am pleased to announce I will be hosting Graydon Moffat the owner of Clinical Luxury by Nature, a clinically researched and luxurious skincare line that uses completely pure (chemical free) formulations derived exclusively from nature in my Bowmanville kitchen.  She also happens to be the lovely mastermind behind my products.  

In this workshop, you will be making a sun screen using Graydon's secret ingredients like cocoa butter & broccoli seed oil (shhhh), a body oil which offers a pleasant and aromatic strategy for bug protection.  Using plant based ingredients including organic soy bean oil, pracaxi seed oil, celery, basil, castor, cedar, cinnamon, eucalyptus, peppermint and even thyme, as well as a chocolate lip balm.  The lip balm is infused with avocado, sunflower and hemp seed oil in addition the cold pressed raspberry seed oil (which is naturally high in vitamin E, A and polyphenols) offers you sun protection from UV-A & UV-B Rays.  It is super light & non-sticky.  

NO harsh chemically derived fragrances which form the basis of commercial sunscreens and outdoor protection in this workshop!

In addition to the skin products which you will make and take home, I will be taking many of the ingredients that are within the products and we will mix and cook together and learn how to make some healthy skin friendly treats. 

Remember what goes on your skin, should be able to go in your mouth!  Only 12 spots available book now!
