Bring on the Christmas spirit with this delicious recipe! Gingerbread men are both fun and easy to make, and, what’s more, the kids will love them!

Image

Ingredients you will need:

125 g organic butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup, firmly packed molasses sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 large organic egg, separated
2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1 tbs ground ginger
½ – 1 tsp of finely grated fresh ginger
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Extra flour, to dust
Currants, raisins and fine strips of orange rind – to decorate

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 trays with baking paper (or lightly grease with melted butter).

Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until paler and creamy. Add the honey and egg yolk and beat until combined. Stir in the flour, fresh and dried ginger, mixed spice and bicarb soda. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Press dough into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.

Place the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out until about ½ cm thick. Use gingerbread man cutter to cut out shapes. Place on trays about 3cm apart. Decorate using currants for eyes and nose, orange rind for mouth and raisins or sultanas for buttons.

Bake in oven for 7-10 minutes or until brown (reduce time if you like the gingerbread soft). Remove from oven. Transfer to a rack to cool.

Serve them to your kids with some warm milk and just watch that smile spread across their face! Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Essential OilsI love fragrances. I find it calming. All through the day, I ensure that I have either incense sticks, cones, candles or a diffuser burning in a corner of my home. I have been more inclined to the diffusers because I find them cleaner and hassle free. You don’t need to clear up the soot and the ashes in the diffusers. I have a couple of my very favourite essential oils that I use for my diffusers. Let me introduce those to you!

I have a varied collection of essential oils that I use for my diffuser. I have a different set of oils that I use for the morning  and nights.  My mornings need to energetic because I have a lot to pack in the day!

TOXIC INGREDIENTS IN YOUR LAUNDRY DETERGENT?

Doing laundry is a daily chore in all households. Whether it’s a machine-wash or hand-wash, we use an ample amount of the well-advertised, promisingly fragrant and gentle, commercial laundry detergent. But did you know that this essential & seemingly harmless household product is imbuing your clothes & linens with harmful synthetic chemicals and flooding the wastewater with chemical residues that do nothing but harm to the environment?

Your everyday laundry powder may contain toxic chemicals which may pose a variety of health risks ranging from skin irritation and allergies to cancer, poisoning and neurological problems! It is a must to know which ingredients to avoid when buying detergent, especially when we use it on a daily basis and on clothing which is in close contact with our skin. It also helps us control the amount of toxins entering our waterways.

Here’s a list of toxic chemicals which could put your health at risk. Does your detergent have any or a combination of these? Check the label & see for yourself!

Also, take a look at the Dirty Dozen – Top 12 harmful ingredients that are an absolute no-no in any product which you buy.

If your detergent has any of these toxic ingredients, it’s time to make a switch to healthier, chemical-free alternatives! Be on the look out for natural soaps and soapy nuts. To get you started, we have handpicked some of the best options available in the market here.
