  1. I’ve got to chime in on the apple thing – fridge all the way! My 9 year old keeps a few on the counter because she hates “cold teeth”, and they definitely get mealy faster than the ones in the fridge.
    Also, I have a few other home remedies for you ladies: tee tree oil for blemishes, peppermint oil on the temples for headaches (a little goes a long way), and Tiger Balm on the soles of the feet to relieve dry cough in children. I’ve been using the Tiger Balm one for my whole family for over a decade and it never fails!
    Love the podcast and your effervescent chit chat made for a fun commute home today 🙂

    • Apparently the fridge is the way to go! Love these additions. Essential oils are great for so many things, I think there may be a whole episode there.

      Thanks so much for listening, Jen!

  2. Just listened to episode 6. Really love your home remedies and I will definitely have to try some out. Wondering if you could have more conversations about essential oils. How do you use them – diffusing, ingesting, topically, etc. Also – is there any proof they work?

    Also – I keep my apples in the fruit bowl on the counter. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for listening, Erin! That’s a great idea, I am a huge fan of essential oils and would love to discuss.

      Another vote for room temp apples! Who would have guessed that was such a hot debate?

  3. My apples are in the fridge all the time. Only because I like most of my fruit cold. But for some reason I have it on my head that you are supposed to store them at room temp. Oh well. I feel apples last longer in the fridge anyway. Side note: I also store my avocados in the fridge to make them last longer, especially when I buy them on sale.
