Purchase any of the following wellness packs and receive $15  off your order

Childrens Wellness Pack

1. Multivitamin: Increadivites

The first chewable multivitamin in the U.S. to contain lactoferrin, which supports a healthy immune system in kids.  Formulated with 23 essential vitamins and minerals.  No added artificial sweeteners or preservatives.  Gluten free.

2. Probiotic

70% of immune system lies in the gut.  Probiotics help with digestion, immune system, allergies/asthma, skin conditions.  Probiotics are especially important for a child who has ever been on  an antibiotic or steroid-based medications (common with asthma). These medications kill off much of these essential “friendly microbes” that live in the lower intestine. Without adequate amounts of these microbes, research now shows the body is more susceptible to infection (especially sinus and upper respiratory ) 


3.  Mighty Smarts/Chewable C/Meal Shakes (YOU PICK)

Might Smarts: DHA Chews. Scientifically formulated with a power-packed blast of 100% natural, ultra-pure DHA.  Essential brain-supporting nutrient, DHA has been show to support memory, concentration, mind skills, promotes healthy eyes, and vision – without the fishy taste!

Chewable C: Essential to build healthy white blood cells to prevent viruses, ear infections, colds, etc., that are depleted by fatigue, anxiety, pollution and extremes in temperature and humidity. Increases resistance to ligament and tendon injury

Meal Shakles: A smart choice for meals-on-the-go, between meal snacks, beverages, or for extra nutritional insurance any time of day. Because it is a complete meal, it is particularly important for finicky eaters. Unlike similar meal replacement products found in grocery stores, Meal Shakes contain no artificial colors, sweeteners or flavorings. A creamy, delicious shake that children love (and you will too at only 230 calories). Bavarian Cocoa and French Vanilla.

Cleaning Carpets Naturally

With babies and toddlers always on the ground I wanted a carpet cleaner that is SAFE and doesn’t leave any chemicals on the ground (as well as the strong fumes left behind for many weeks to come).  This will leave your carpets super clean and without any fumes!





I used Basic H (click on links to read more about these), Natures Bright, and liquid laundry….


(NOTE you can definitely do this with just Basic H and Natures Bright) I just added the liquid laundry because we had some super bad stains.  You can also use Basic G to disinfect the carpets (will add this next time)


Here is the recipe- honestly I didn’t measure exactly but it was around this:


Another added bonus is we can wash all of Caleb and Malaynas clothes with ours- all while saving money too because all of their cleaners are really concentrated so you only need a small amount.  Read more about why I love Shaklee cleaners here!

The Basic H and Natures Bright work so well with stains that it even got PEN out of Malayna’s blanket.

After labor recovery help!



Extra calcium is required for baby’s healthy bones – AND little known fact…Mom’s blood level rises 50% during pregnancy. Calcium along with iron is responsible for producing the extra blood that nourishes the fetus. When taken during pregnancy can prevent leg cramps. Also a lot of sleep issues are linked to a calcium and magnesium deficiency (why a glass of warm milk is suggested before bed cavities, and helps calm the baby after birth!
**I had really bad cramps from my uterus contracting when I nursed May- this helps with muscle cramps, mood swings, water retention, and reduces indigestion. Hopefully my cramps wont be so bad with this!  Many of my friends use Osteomatrix and GLA to help with menstrual cramping and NO LONGER GET CRAMPS!! I take 1-2 osteomatrix with each meal to help my heartburn- it works amazing!
Benefits: Relieves PMS, retains normal blood pressure, reduces risk of osteoporosis
