A couple benefits of Lemon Essential Oil

As the kids start school again, as autumn soon begins, as winter comes right behind it. One thing is for certain, cold and flu season will be coming.

As you know, lemon essential oils are great for many things like:

Cleaning surfaces.
Purifying the air.
Helping to clean your body.
It aids in digestion.
Supporting respiratory function.
Promoting a more positive mood.
And removing toxins from the body.

How do you use lemon essential oil during cold and flu season? Here are three simple ways.

1.) Rub a few drops of lemon oil on your chest or throat when you feel congested. Repeat several times daily. Now remember, you can’t overdose on lemon oil, so this is definitely another great reason to use it!

2.) You can also diffuse lemon oil into the air for help with respiratory problems.

3.) Add 2-3 drops of lemon oil to your hot tea, or drink it with warm water and honey to help soothe a sore throat.

Hope these tips about lemon essential oils will help you to have a healthier fall and winter season.

30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge

I’m a total foodie. However when a friend told me that she managed to improve her sluggish, tired feeling and increased her energy level I knew I had to know more! Turns out she was doing the 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge.

So I jumped on board, cutting out inflammatory foods like gluten, dairy, soy, alcohol, refined sugars, peanuts, caffeine etc. What I incorporated into my meals instead, was way more vegetables, fruits, lean meats, poultry, fish and healthy fats. When I signed up, I got my own challenge kit with protein powders, fibre, energy sticks, detox tea, a 7 day cleanse and a helpful support guide. I was also included in a closed Facebook group where I got support and encouragement to keep eating healthier, weekly menu plans and ingredient shopping lists which made sticking with the plan super easy because it took the guessing work out of it.

I’ve now been following this system on and off for a year and I’m still loving it. I’m always looking for people to join me on the challenge so we can help keep each other accountable. The challenge starts the first Monday of every month. If you want to join in, click here to get your very own 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge Kit and kickstart your journey to healthy today.

Holiday Reveal Party

I had a fantastic time last night with my girlfriends! They popped over to my place and we opened, smelled and experienced the new Holiday Arbonne Collection. We LOVE it!!! It smells so yummy and the packaging is absolutely beautiful. We also had a makeup demo by my fabulous friend Sandy who’s been a professional makeup artist for over 10 years. My sweet friend Cate was our magnificent model last night. She opted for a look with a smoky eye and to achieve that look flawlessly, Sandy used the Midnight Muse Holiday Set. We learned so much, laughed a lot and people were able to get their holiday shopping done early and in a fun relaxing atmosphere. Everyone will also have a chance to give back to a great cause since 15% of all purchases from my store in October and November will go to help support the local food bank.
