Oils for Holidays: Nutmeg

This week we’re looking at some essential oils to inspire and keep you healthy this holiday season! Today we want to look at Nutmeg Essential Oil (Myristica fragrans).

When we think of nutmeg we usually think of the yummy spice we put in our baked goods. But it is so much more! According to Pompeii Organics, nutmeg oil is warming and pain relieving. Like cinnamon, it’s helpful to sooth aching joints and and muscles.

Nutmeg is also great for nausea or upset stomach. Dilute it with a carrier oil or lotion and massage into the abdomen. It soothes spasms and inflammation, and fights bacteria.

Oils For Holidays: Cinnamon

Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already upon us, and soon after it will be Christmas! This week we want to highlight some oils that can get you in the mood for the season and help you be your healthiest as well!

Today’s featured oil is cinnamon leaf (Cinnamomum zeylanicum). According to Pompeii Organics, cinnamon leaf should NOT be confused with cinnamon bark oil. They are two completely different oils and the latter can be harmful to the skin.

Cinnamon leaf, however, is warming and pain-relieving. It kills bacteria, fungus, and viruses, making it great for cold and flu season.

The oil also helps with arthritic joints, warming the area, numbing the pain, and fighting inflammation.

Of course, Cinnamon oil is also lovely during the holiday season! Diffuse it on its own or with a citrus oil to make your home smell heavenly. It will be cheaper and healthier than using synthetic air fresheners!

Interested in ordering Cinnamon Leaf Oil? Send us a message. We’d love to hear from you! And stay tuned throughout the week as we highlight special holiday-inspired products.

And take note that at both our store locations in Franklin and Meadville, we will be offering 10% off all our products for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday! (In store purchases only, no orders:-)

Have a great week!

 

 

Preparation….

This is a photo we have used before to show our soap making preparation….it reminded me this morning of the preparations many of us are making right now for the Holidays.  We think about what we will make, think about ingredients and the people in our lives that we will share it with.

So making preparations for any thing starts with what we want it to look like, so to speak. If we make preparations for our life, we have to have an idea of what we want the picture to look like. Then we need to set about to get “the ingredients”. I am thinking about self improvement right now. Making those first changes requires thinking about ingredients that will help us move in the right direction. Do we need to work on patience…or kindness…or self control? Then we move in that direction, meditating on things that will keep our mind focused and taking one step at a time in that direction.

If you were to begin to make a goal for your self right now, what preparations would you have to start making? Do you need to give up a bad habit? Quit surrounding your self with people who are a poor influence on your life? Or start some kind of “no matter what I am doing this______ every day”, program?

Start it! Go for it! Get out of your rut and make a new path. ( Science shows us we actually have those ruts in our brains!) I am creating a new rut in my brain right now. Choosing healthy things, over bad habit things. Think about what you want yourself and your life to look like….and what you want it not to look like!

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, lets prepare our hearts and minds for our future days, as far as it depends on us to do. As far as the business, I am preparing a BLACK FRIDAY special as well as preparing some blends today to sell over the next few weeks.

Prepare and be prepared when your opportunity arises! God Bless your day and week.

Diatomaceous Earth!

Good stuff!!!20151120_094552.jpg

I use this in a few products that we make. It is in our facial, because it does such a great job of not only lightly exfoliating, but pulling out toxins from the skin.

I also take it in a capsule for a gentle detox. Only Food Grade!! ( Always get the  advice of you Physician first.) I had a friend call me this morning and say that she thinks her son has parasites, I encouraged her to check into this.

I shared a full blog on our Honest Aroma FB page. It is packed full of the wonderfulness of Diatomaceous Earth. Check it out!
