I featured on TV Friday a segment on DIY manicures & pedicures. The TV show viewers sent me a few requests to help them keep toe nail fungus away or to help with any future issues. Here is a pedicure that you can do at home. It seems as though I hear and see more fungus issues on the toes. Wether it is a little problem or big one here is an easy ecipe to try!
For some states spring is finally here! However for others you’re still getting snow. But no matter what sandal season and signs of spring into summer are here.
You’ll need to buy a few supplies:
Tea Tree essential oil (I love ❤️ Aura Cacia)
1 Basin of warm to a bit hot water 💦
1 Nail Scrub brush
1 teaspoon Clay mask powder
1 body lotion or foot cream
1 pair of white cotton socks
🍃First sprinkle about 5 drops of tea tree oil in a basin. Soak your feet in a water filled foot bath and wash them. Do this soak at least 15 minutes.
🍃Next, apply an exfoliating body scrub to your feet.
*If you don’t have one make one with white sugar and olive or sunflower oil. Be careful it will be a bit slippery.
🍃Next rinse well.
🍃Make a foot mask out of clay powder. Water and a few drops of tea tree oil. Mix in a bowl and apply mask to foot and mail bed. Leave this mask on and allow it to dry completely.
🍃Rinse your feet again. and apply your favorite body lotion.
🍃Dry your feet and apply a pair of white cotton socks and just chill or go to bed.
🍃Tea Tree oil has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It speeds up the healing process. It really helps with its anti-fungal benefits to prevent foot and toe nail infections.
Your feet 🦶 will feel so refreshed and IF you have a problem with a nail fungus infection this treatment will work wonders.
If you have a severe problem on your nails on the hands and feet … it’s always best to see a doctor.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love fruits and veggies! Over the years I not only served up some delicious treats for my family. I started to serve my clients fresh juice potions for their skin and health. So today I am sharing one of those recipes with you!
My Cantaloupe 🍈 Crush!
All you need for this drink recipe is:
4 cups of chilled fresh cantaloupe
1 cup of cool 🍋 Lemon juice
1 tbsp. Local 🍯 honey
1 tiny piece of peeled ginger or grated ginger
I serve the juice in pretty glasses or in mini shot glasses.
😎If you want to make it a little tropical 🌴 or you’re entertaining at home. Add 1/4 cup of good rum.
Place cubes and cantaloupe, lemon juice,honey and ginger in a blender.
