Be Well Roll On

Be Well Roll On

As much as you love to travel, and I would argue that travel is beneficial and healthy for you, it also puts you in contact with a lot of other people. Even if you are not traveling by air and getting exposed to all the people at airports, you will still be introduced to more people and with more people comes more…… you know.

Good Sleep While Traveling

Good Sleep While Traveling

Have you ever had trouble sleeping in a foreign place? Or woken up a million times during the night, causing you to start the next day feeling unrested? As if getting that good night’s sleep wasn’t difficult enough at home, now you have the stress of travel and the unfamiliar environment in which you’re now attempting to catch those Zzzs.

How To Have Happy Tummy Durning Travel

How To Have Happy Tummy Durning Travel

Tummy Time

Any travel—especially flying, even for a short trip—can wreak havoc on your digestive system for a number of reasons.

  1. Traveling can cause acute stress.
  2. Quality food choices or the foods you are used to can be limited or very expensive.
  3. Finally, there’s the impact of sitting for long periods of time in a car or a plane. Did you know that getting up and walking helps your digestive system do its job?

A lot of what I just mentioned is unavoidable as you get your summer traveling in, but there are some essential oils that are perfect to apply to your abdomen to keep a happy tummy while traveling.

Let me introduce to you two essential oils that combine to make the Happy Tummy Roller.

Peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita) has a bright, cool, and calming aroma, with many benefits. Used topically, Peppermint oil creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin.

DiGize™ blend is one of YL’s most unique essential oil blends, combining Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli oils with a spicy, exotic aromatic blend. DiGize oil also includes Fennel essential oil, the use of which dates back to ancient Egypt and is great to apply to your abdomen.

 

Happy Tummy Roller – the perfect travel buddy.

Add 15 drops Digize and 10 drops Peppermint to a 10 ml roller bottle. Fill with V6 oil or a carrier oil of your choice.

**For kids dilution (age 3-8), cut the above in half.**

Application – After rolling the bottle between your hands to mix before use, roll bottle either clockwise around the navel.

My must have for travel

My must have for travel

Do you dread packing for vacation? What should you take? Do you only realize the night before you leave that you don’t have toiletries small enough for TSA? UGH!

Vacations have been shown to decrease stress levels and make you more present and better focused in different areas of your life, both at work and at home. I would love to help you decrease the stress before you go! Continue reading “My must have for travel”

Non Toxic Insect Repellent

Non Toxic Insect Repellent

Isn’t it funny how when we are deprived of something (summer) for nine months of the year, we initially forget all of the trials and tribulations associated with it?

We will all too soon be plagued by mosquitoes, gnats, and flies when all we want to do is enjoy a bonfire or walk along the beach. Continue reading “Non Toxic Insect Repellent”

DIY Body Powder

DIY Body Powder

Talcum powder is one of those ingredients commonly found in baby and body powders. While some argue it is “safe,” others disagree, and after Johnson & Johnson had to pay out $417 million in damages to a terminally ill woman due to the talcum in their baby powder, I am going to just err on the side of caution and stick with a homemade version that I KNOW is safe and effective.  Continue reading “DIY Body Powder”
