Feeling Sick?


Sitting here this morning, feeling a little low and run down after the holiday. I made some tea and did some Yoga with Adriene She has a great set of videos for working out when you are not feeling well, check them out! We all need to give our bodies a rest from this busy, stressed filled world- especially at this time of year.

Feed your body with fresh citrus to boost your immune system and lighten your mood, drink some tea with raw honey, and take a little walk. Put a couple drops of of grapefruit, lemon and orange in your diffuser. Read scriptures that are related to healing, Mark 5:34 for instance, and meditate on it.

Here is to a great, healthy week! Who says you have to wait till January 1st?:-)

We would love to hear from you and book a Christmas Party for you! Remember you get 30% off as a hostess! Call today!

Grapefruit for Winter Blues

This time of the year always gets a little bittersweet. The holidays are over, but a new year has begun, but the weather is often cold and harsh. This won’t do!

Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus paradisi) is a lifesaver for wintertime. Not only does it fight viruses and strenthen the body’s systems (making it great to treat wintertime illnesses), but it’s also a natural antidepressant and mood booster. The sweet, fresh, tangy scent brightens up any day

(of course, the fruit is delicious too!)

Grapefruit also has diuretic and astringent properties; it removes excess fluid and swelling and tightens tissue.

There are many effective ways to use this essential oil. The best way to use for mood boosting is to diffuse it. For topical uses, always dilute with a carrier oil or unscented lotion (start with 5 drops per fluid ounce). BE CAREFUL because grapefruit is phototoxic, meaning it burns and irritates the skin if exposed to sunlight. And as always, do not take internally unless under the supervision of a certified aromatherapist.
