Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that has been consumed for thousands of years. It assists in maintaining healthy bacteria levels in the digestive tract. You may have heard about its relationship to “gut health”, but did you know it can also strengthen your immune system and help you fight off illnesses?
I have a new hobby, and by extension, a tag line of sorts. It’s, “I’ve got an oil for that!”.
Sun burn? Lavender. Under the weather? On Guard. Sticky mess? Lemon. Headache? Peppermint. Cramps? Clary Calm. Scar? Frankincense. The list goes on! I am so thankful that my closest friends are jumping on the same bandwagon. We all have a strong desire to consume fewer chemicals, to simplify our lives, and to make our homes safe for each other and future generations.
This past weekend I shared tea and goodies with some wonderful women, and bonus, there were essential oils abounding. In diffusers, in hands, in laundry soap, (oh my!). We are discovering that low and behold, these wee essential oils may be one of the keys to a happy and healthy home. Sharing the possibilities here seemed the right thing to do. Starting with, mouthwash, no matter how random it may
seem be. It’s seriously minty fresh.
There are a lot of things one could put into their yoga/gym bag. Multiple water bottles, fancy rep timers, a towel (or three), a shower kit, hairspray, protein bars, a tin of soup, feminine products, makeup, homework, running shoes, a cell phone charger, iPad, headphones, etc etc. This year, as a part of my New Years resolution to be more active, I decided that I wouldn’t make “getting all of my stuff together”, an excuse for not getting out of the house. I’ve tried to make it easy for myself by simplifying what I take down to the basics.
