Forever in Lavender Love!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love me some essential oils? Well... I love me some essential oils! And one of my favorites in case you don't know me is... drum roll... LAVENDER!! More and more I am so blown away by the benefits of this particular oil! Just a little while ago, I was taking something out of the oven and burned the tip of my thumb... Ouch! It hurt like a mug! Anyway, I quickly and instinctively... as I do more and more these days... thought about trying one of my essentials to see it will help in whatever I'm going through... In this case help to stop my thumb from hurting ...like a mug :) Let me tell you. I ran to the bathroom... for real ya'll I ran! I dabbed a small amount, not even a full drop on the tip of my thumb. And within 30 seconds, guess what?? The pain went away... Almost instantly! Do I need to say my love affair with lavender is alive and well? And my thumb no longer hurts like a mug! Listen, I don't know (yes I do) what that term means (hurting like a "mug") It's just a carry over from my neighborhood... Sigh...you figure it out! At any rate... don't sleep on the essential oils... Well actually that is another one of lavender oils benefits... It relaxes you and helps you to fall asleep! But that aside, give essentials a try... you wont be disappointed. Until next time, Be You... Do You... Love You!

Natural vs Chemical

There are so many products that we may be using... products that are touted as antibacterial... that may in fact be causing more harm in the long run, than good. Not to mention...we have become a society of quick fixes. We want everything right now! And if we don't see positive results instantaneously... then we say that whatever it was didn't work for us and we move on to the next "quick fix".

Although we can probably never be free of all harmful chemicals, we can be informed and try to minimize some of the potential risks' that we are bombarded with on a daily basis.
We can reduce some of those risks' by researching and learning more about natural alternatives to products that although may be ingrained in us as the thing to use because... well that's what our parents may have used or it's just what we're used to reaching for it in the local drugstore or grocery isle... (name brand recognition does work!). 

While some natural remedies and or ingredients may not give you the quickest solution... given the chance they may be just what was needed and without the adverse side effects. That's not to say that we should not be cautious when using natural herbs, essential oils and the likes. Sometimes we may be sensitive to certain plants and essences. It's important to learn your body and those things that it may have a sensitivity to. the key is being aware!

Here's a great article about the dangers of chemicals used today in "antibacterial" personal care and hygiene products. Products which have been reported as toxic to the human body...

'Perhaps the most toxic is one named triclosan. Triclosan is a controversial chemical linked to hormonal disruption and various types of cancer....' To read more click on the following link.
