Got a cold? Sinus issues? Run down?

My husband and our family have had it on and off since December. It’s tough!

Here is a remedy that really helped us!!!

Eucalyptus Rescue

This recipe is simple. You only need two ingredients and a small glass spray bottle. I found some gorgeous green colored ones.

1 bottle of distilled water (my preference)

1 bottle of Eucalyptus oil

Mix a few drops 💦 of the oil into the bottle you filled with water. A little goes a long way and depends on the size of the bottle.

Next BEFORE you go into the shower spray one of the shower walls with it. You’ll notice immediately that soothing scent. It will start to open up your sinuses and make you feel better! Take your shower as usual.

Another thing you can do is hang a bunch of eucalyptus upside down in the shower with twine. But I love ❤️ the oil method in the spray bottle. I like to make small batches but if you’d like to make a larger bottle use a 16 0z. Spray bottle and fill with water. Add about 4 drops of the oil.

Shake and spray! You’re good to go.

Next I placed some Vicks Vapo rub on the soles of my husbands feet after the shower. I followed up with a clean pair of cotton socks.

* If you’d like to you can add a slice of fresh ginger into the mug too.

Then I gave him a cup of tea. But not with a tea bag I made an elixir with a lemon 🍋 and honey 🍯 cough drop.

FYI I allow the cough drop to melt inside the cup.

I warmed up some hot water and dropped the throat lozenge in the mug or tea cup. His mug reads “Hello Handsome” He gets a kick out if it every time I serve him something in that particular mug. He drinks every last drop.

Add a slice of fresh ginger and lemon slices if you’d like too!

The eucalyptus scented shower, the cozy socks with the rub and the cough drop tea I made combined made him feel so much better. That and lots of bed rest and no screen time!

I repeated the next few days as needed.

Soothing in so many ways!

Added bonus… his feet felt so soft and a warm sensation filled his body. He’s much better now!

Obviously if you are allergic to ANY of the above. You may need to alter this recipe to your needs.

Feel better soon.

Clearing your space …

Today I woke up at 5:20 AM as most of you I am restless and can’t seem to sleep 😴 in like I used to. I’m taking time this Labor Day to cook, cozy up to a few magazines and a good book 📚 and to clear my space.

Life has thrown so many curve balls at us and it is getting a bit tiring. Isn’t it? I so miss the good old days.

A few things I like to do in my home and office/ beauty business to purify my space and protect it too.

Playing music 🎶 really feeds the body,mind and spirit. I enjoy and have fallen in love ❤️ with the music 🎵 of George Skaroulis. My favorites are his Sanctuary and Sanctuary 2 CD’s I also love David Young’s Bliss. These both are BEAUTIful music, calming and relaxing. You can’t be in a bad mood anymore if you listen to them in your car or home or business.

Feed yourself with music. 🎶

Detoxify your space and your mind with a little meditation. 🧘‍♂️ Affirm with positive mantras. Create your own personal mantra. Repeat over and over.

Stressful job, a toxic relationship and our lives now in general can affect our digestive tract and adrenal glands. I like to start my day with a simple drink.

After I wake up I pour myself a glass of room temperature water 💦. Not cold or iced. Flush out your body and quench your thirst with water every morning.

I also alternate between these two drinks. Long known as a healthy and most beneficial plant 🌱 I love to sip aloe juice. One small glass in the morning will do. It helps your body detox too. I also surround my space and desk area with a small aloe plant.

Great to drink, great to grow and great for skin issues like burns in the kitchen or bathroom too.

Another drink I do more often is warm water with lemon 🍋 and ginger. Great for the digestive tract and immune boosting too.

Burn some incense a bay leaf or sage. Or all three in a week. They all protect your space and you as well as purify the air of negative energy.

Incense is my state of mind!
Oranges 🍊 rule!

The Chinese believe that oranges bring you abundance and protection. I’ll never forget the scents and sights of Hong Kong where the sandalwood incense perfumed the air and smelled so amazing. I also saw oranges everywhere in businesses, at temples and on tables in the home. They believe having bowls of oranges 🍊 in your home for you, your family and guests to enjoy. And they brighten your kitchen as well as bring you abundance and protection!

Who doesn’t want that?

So I hope you clear the air and clean your space with some of these small rituals I highly recommend.

Hope you have a beautiful end to your day wherever you live.

Smoothie Shots

I enjoy drinking and making smoothies for my family on Sundays and serving them to my clients too. I especially love 💗 to make them with fruit and ingredients that are good for the skin and energizing too.

Here is a pretty looking creamy and dreamy smoothie that is good for you, great for the skins elasticity and the ginger is an anti- inflammatory.

Guys YOU can enjoy drinking it too.

What you will need:

1 cup of bottled 💦water (not tap)

2 cubes of a Frozen dragon fruit

1/2 cup of blueberries

1 scoop of collagen powder

1 piece of ginger

*Ice cubes optional. I like to add at least one or two. But it is up to you.

Place all of the above in a blender and blend.

Pour, serve and savour every sip and enjoy in a beautiful glass.

FYI

You can serve this smoothie in shot glasses too! Not all shots need to be alcoholic. 😜 Your guests will get a kick out of these small shots too!
