Feet Treat: They come in all different shapes, sizes and we usually don't think about them until they hurt us. Yes, I'm talking about our feet! They do so much for us on a daily basis but for the most part are neglected. It's time to give a little gratitude to our feet and take time out to give them a little attention. Warning: This tip may cause you to relax so do not operate any heavy machinery afterwards:) What you'll need: 1 golf ball, 1 - 1 oz. bottle with a screw top or flip cap, 1 oz. jojoba (or carrier oil of your choice), 7 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil, 5 drops Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil, 2 drops Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) essential oil.
Green Bug Busters: In today's world, finding ways to green our earth, our communities and ourselves are vital. Having natural, green alternatives at our fingertips not only makes it simple, but it ensures that we may take action. Take pest control for example, if a greener solution for insect repellent, ant repellent or flea control was available, wouldn't you be likely to use it? Especially if it has additional health benefits, such as boosting immune function, enhancing your mood or helping release irritability? Well, bugs may be a part of the natural greening process for the environment, but when they start attacking us or our pets, compromising our immunity and health, we need to take control. Using a natural, aromatherapy-based bug repellent, may be necessary to deter pests from biting you or your pet.
