National Food Day

Today, October 24, 2013, we celebrate Food Day – a nationwide celebration         and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.   As we have spent the past few years striving for a healthier lifestyle, we have watched our lives transform.  Much of the transformation has come in the form of an improved diet.  We have a ways to go but we have made great strides in choosing to eat and preparing better foods that are raw, organic with little or no additives or preservatives.  It has taken time, patience and education.  We read a lot and pay attention to what we are putting into our mouths.  This website, www.foodday.org is a great education resource and a place to join like minded individuals in their quest for bettering our food supply.

Be sure to take the Food Literacy Quiz http://www.foodday.org/food_literacy_quiz – you’ll be surprised at what you don’t know.  Join this important movement today.

New Product: Juniper Berry Essential Oil

juniper berry

 

This has to be my favorite new product this year -Juniper Berry Essential Oil.  When I first experienced its aroma, I closed my eyes and was lifted to another place.
There is a high vibration to this oil as it really pulled a lot of emotion to the surface for me.  It’s woodsie, it’s masculine and yet there is a sweetness to it that’s indescribable.

Derived from the coniferous tree, Juniper Berry essential oil has a rich history of traditional uses and therapeutic benefits. Juniper Berry acts as a natural cleansing agent, both internally and externally. Juniper Berry supports healthy kidney and urinary function and is and essential oil for the  skin.  Its woody, spicy, yet fresh aroma has a calming effect that helps relieve tension and stress. When diffused, Juniper Berry helps to cleanse and purify the air.

Also try blending it with White Fir oil for an aromatic sensation like no other.  Unique and invigorating!

The Absorption of Essential Oils

We are constantly asked about the science behind essential oils.  While we are not doctors or scientists, we have received a lot of training and education which has given us good basic knowledge, enough to be useful and to share valuable information.  The essential oil company is committed to continued research and development around creating understanding about the essential oils, how they are used and how our bodies absorb and respond each.  What we love most is that all information is presented in layman’s terms where everyone can understand.

 

 

New Product: The Protective Blend Laundry Detergent

Another great product was rolled out at the essential oil company (can’t say the name) convention.  Over time, as we learn more about the benefits of essential oils we will see more and more and more products like this.  This product is all natural, safe, pure and cost effective as this product should be.

Essential Oil Education

There isn’t a better place to learn more about essential oils than the essential oil convention.  This year’s convention was no exception.  It was three solid days of learning about the power of essential oils.  I could go on for pages and pages of all the things I have learned.  Perhaps one of the most fascinating was the presentation by Laura Jacobs about genetics and how they have been affected by the food we eat and our unhealthy lifestyle habits.  I was also very impressed by the words of the doctor panel; emphasis was made about the importance of speaking up and asking for more when it comes to our health – it’s our right!!!

I’m realizing more and more the importance of empowering ourselves with ways to protect and support our families and we need to know that we have more options!

Another convention highlight was the introduction of some amazing new products, including:

  • Protective Blend capsules
  • Digestive Blend capsules
  • Juniper Berry Oil
  • Cedarwood Oil
  • Protective Blend Laundry detergent
  • Jasmin Oil

All of these products are now available for purchase.  I will feature them more here.
