For centuries many cultures have looked to essential oils to enhance their daily lives, perform religious rites, support wellness, and wear as perfumes. Not only are essential oils extremely versatile but many also contain naturally occurring constituents that are practically made for one particular usage: beautifying the skin. Unlike skin care products that rely on harsh and synthetic ingredients, essential oils use their natural properties to brighten, smooth, and moisturize the appearance of skin in a way that leaves you feeling perfectly pampered.

The best part? You can easily add essential oil goodness to your regimen with our Essential Oils for Skin Care Set. This holiday exclusive includes Lavender, Tea Tree, and Frankincense essential oils, so it’s a great way to get started with skin care oils or share them with a friend! Here are our ideas for using these and other skincare favorites to get your glow on!

Add Power to Your Power Nap

Do you worry that you’re not getting enough sleep each night? You’re not alone. The Centers for Disease Control reports that nearly 30 percent of American adults average less than six hours nightly, rather than the recommended 7–8 hours. Chronic sleep deprivation can have long-term health consequences, and on a day-to-day basis, not getting enough z’s can leave you sleepy and slam the brakes on your productivity and creativity.

It might be tempting to turn to junk food or an energy drink to get you through the 2 p.m. lull, but consider taking a power nap instead. Think that a short sleep break sounds a little on the lazy side? Think again! Influential nappers have included Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Napoleon, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, George W. Bush, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Each of these figures already knew what science is now confirming: A power nap can boost your memory, cognitive skills, creativity, and energy levels.

The Best Uses for Thieves Essential Oil and How to Make It

                                                                                                              October 29, 2016

Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of five oils: clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. This oil mixture has many uses and you can easily make it at home using my simple recipe which I am going to share with you.

Thieves essential oil is said to date back to the 15th century. Its recipe originated from a group of four thieves and grave robbers who came up with the concoction to protect themselves against contracting the Bubonic plaque while robbing the bodies of the deceased. When they were caught, the thieves gave up the recipe in order to receive a less severe punishment for their crimes.

Peppermint: An old-fashioned remedy takes aim against modern health issues

October 18, 2016

Peppermint oil, one of the world’s most time-honored and versatile natural remedies, has been employed for thousands of years as the go-to treatment for digestive problems. Like all essential oils, it is highly concentrated – Dr. Eric Zielinski says a single drop of peppermint oil in a teaspoon of honey is enough to quickly banish nausea and indigestion.

But peppermint’s usefulness isn’t limited to easing old-fashioned stomach aches and heartburn. According to recent clinical studies, peppermint oil worked better than placebo in reducing pain in patients suffering from a more contemporary ailment – irritable bowel syndrome.Thanks to its high concentrations of menthone and menthol, peppermint oil also has potent analgesic and anti- inflammatory properties, making it a valuable ally against backache, toothache and headache.  As a natural antiseptic, peppermint can help combat dandruff; as an expectorant, it relieves allergy symptoms.
