Now Available – Lunch & Learn Classes

photo (12)

 

I spent the afternoon yesterday with doctors, nurses, and staff at an Atlanta-area Oncology Radiation clinic sharing essential oils, their health benefits, and allowing the whole office to sample & experience them during and after lunch.

I setup in their conference room during lunch and saw the oils uplift the staff’s mood first hand. It was such an amazing experience – so, I want to do it more.

I will bring the class & oils to your office, give a quick 15-30 minute talk and then employees will have time to sample the oils, have 1:1 time with me (if they choose), and purchase any oils they are wanting to try.

What do I cover?

  • What are Essential Oils and how are they produced?
  • The 3 Ways to use Essential Oils
  • What is a good quality essential oil?
  • The key essential oils to have in your home and office
  • Essential oils for specific health concerns

I have a new Healthy Habit for 2015 – Oil Pulling.

Haven’t heard of it?  Oil Pulling has been used extensively as a traditional Indian folk remedy for many years to prevent decay, oral malodor, bleeding gums, dryness of throat, cracked lips and for strengthening teeth, gums and the jaw (source).

I have decided to pick it up as a natural attempt to whiten my teeth (yep, an added benefit) and pull toxins from my mouth. [Read more…]

Many people interested in learning more about essential oils ask me what I recommend as the most basic starter kit.  The Home Essentials Kit includes many of the ‘essentials’ when it comes to common ailments, cleaning, and self-care products (however, if you want to go bigger and/or start your own essential oils business, check out the Every Oil Kit).  Plus, you get the Petal diffuser.

To better convey how much use you can get from this set of oils, I present to you:

Salt Water Flush for Constipation and Cleansing

bathroom

 

Potty talk is not the easiest to have, but regularity is really important for your health.  Without consistent bowel movements, fecal matter can build up in your intestines and serve as a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.

Recently I felt super backed up and really uncomfortable.  None of my normal tricks (coffee, fiber, etc) were working.  Luckily, I shared this with my boyfriend (not the most exciting topic to bring up) and he told me about salt water (saline) flushing.

What is a Salt Water (Saline) Flush?

The Salt Water Flush ‘flushes’ your entire GI Tract – removing waste, including gas, from the small intestine, unlike a colonic which cleans out the colon. Also, the high quality salt used in a Salt Water flush can act as a healing agent as it works to normalize the pH throughout your entire GI tract. A healthy intestinal pH reduces the amount of bad bacteria, pathogens, viruses, and fungi that create all kinds of nasty digestive issues.

The Salt Water solution is the same gravity of your blood so it simply moves as a tidal wave through your GI Tract, taking all of the built-up matter with it. [Read more…]

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Whenever it starts getting cold I start craving pumpkin. But, sugar doesn’t like me, so I try to find the healthiest options without processed sugar.  I came across a recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Bread and knew I needed to make it + it turned out pretty fab.  After baking, I let it cool and cut with a serrated knife and store in the fridge.  Delicious warm with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning – mmm, mmm!
