Essential Oils

Have you ever used essential oils?  I was first introduced to them years ago when I first started getting therapeutic massages.  Then, in 2002, I attended Massage Therapy school at Irene’s Myomassology and was further intrigued by these oils and their healing abilities.

My Favorite Natural Deodorant

In June I posted about Bubble and Bee’s Super Pit Putty stick deodorant.  I kept using it after I wrote about it and got okay results.  But, as the summer months went on and the heat rose, so did my body chemistry.  So, once again I was on a search to find another natural deodorant that could keep up with me.

Getting Back Into the Swing of Things…

Hello!  I am finally able to get back into posting articles on my blog!  I am sorry I have been away for over two months.  My last post was at the end of June and since then, my family and I have moved to a new home and city, we have had the kitchen at the new home torn up for the past five weeks doing a renovation, both kids have started back to school and I have still been learning more about holistic ways to become healthier and happier.

I am very excited to be able to sit down to write something again.  I have really missed posting on my blog each day.  My next few posts will be about a natural deodorant that I have started using that is now my all-time favorite (I have literally tried about a dozen natural deodorants).  The one I now use keeps me feeling fresh all day and has no aluminum in it.  I can’t say enough about it!

Within the past two days, I have been juicing.  I watched the documentary, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” a few months ago and it really had a huge impact on me.  I bought a juicer, didn’t like the juice it created and took it back.  I exchanged it for a different model in the same line and juiced about an hour ago.  I will be writing about the results soon.

Another topic I have been thinking a lot about lately are essential oils.  Do you use them and if so, what kind and how do you use them?  I currently use lavender, peppermint and tea tree oil.  I know there are hundreds of great uses for oils and I am really interested in using them to help heal.

Well, I sure hope you have been well in the past few months.  I hope you  have been taking good care of your health and paying more attention to what you are eating, drinking, putting on your skin, what cleaning products you use in your home, what candles you burn (try soy, not synthetic).  Have you tried a green smoothie yet?  We are still drinking those each day and love them!

Please let me know if there is anything you are wondering about that will help your health and I will write about it.  In the meantime, enjoy your day!

 It’s all about the journey…
