Try Hard Lotion!
MadeOn Skin Care is a Christian, family-run company that specializes in simple, effective, safe skincare. Their flagship product, the Beesilk Hard Lotion Bar, has brought relief to dry, cracked skin to tens of thousands of men, women and children.
What’s in the Beesilk Lotion Bar that makes it so effective to fix the cuts and splits in your skin? Our 3 ingredient bar has BEESWAX, which seals in the effective and nourishing coconut oil and shea butter. Beeswax makes the bar “hard” but also keeps you from having to re-apply the lotion like you do with liquid lotions.
Listen to the Podcast
Today’s episode is just a short snippet from a longer conversation with had with Heather Bowen over in the Homeschool Mom Collective Membership during the month of October. This month’s emphasis in our membership was on preparing for sick days and burnout in our homeschool. We worked on concrete plans to be ready for those crazy days or seasons, including family sickness, death of a loved one, or even welcoming a new baby. You can get the help you need in the Collective!
But Heather had so many great ideas to share, that we clipped out some practical solutions about preventing burnout specifically. Because preventing it in the first place is ideal, right? Listen is as Heather gives some great advice. Plus – Heather gave our members her Sick Day & Burnout Toolkit for FREE in the Collective!
