My Essential Oil Love

Hey Ladies!

I hope you are having a great day so far. Fall is right around the corner, and I can;t wait for all the beauty of the season. One of the things I love so much about fall is the smells. I love the smell of cinnamon tea, and hot apple pie, which is one of my fall favorites. I also love using my Young Living Essential Oils. They add the best smells to my home. I can’t even pick a favorite because there is something unique about each and every one of them. They all serve a purpose. I use lemon in the morning for my water, and I use lavender at night before I go to bed. I love using them on a daily basis.

The benefits are astounding. They are the best for stress relief. I find many of the yoga classes that I attend use essential oils for many purposes. They will place essential oils on cool towels, and many come around and place essential oils on our temples. They are great for healing and recovery, and alleviating headaches. I feel they overall enhance the immune system. I’ve been using them on a daily basis and I’ve seen less sickness. Who doesn’t love to smell amazing aromas. They can be used in a diffuser as well as rubbing a bit on the temples or wrists. Many people use them in place of perfumes and heavy oils. They can be added to your bath, and I even throw a few drops in my shower if I am feeling my sinuses are acting up. Essential oils are great for over all health and immunity. If you are new to trying or using essential oils, please find oils that are pure and worth every penny. Young Living oils are that and so much more. Oils for health

I try to share one of my favorite recipes with all of you each month. These recipes are healthy and super delicious. One of the reasons I love this recipe so much is because it’s not only delicious, but loaded up with tons of vitamins and antioxidants. This is a favorite around our home, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. This is a favorite of mine from Martha Stewart.

Organic Tomato and Mozzarella Toast

Hi Ladies!

Breakfast is a very important part of our day. It gets our motors running. and puts our metabolism in to full force. It is always best to start off your day with a healthy meal, and nothing too over the top. When we eat a big, heavy meal it can slow our digestive process down and wreak havoc on our whole day. I usually start off my morning with some warm lemon water, and then an hour later I will either have a morning green smoothie or this fabulous toast if I’m heading to a crazy workout. You want to fuel your body the correct way because it really does make a difference in your energy levels. The last thing we want to be is feeling sluggish.

This toast tastes just as good as it looks. It is healthy and full of antioxidants as well. I love adding cracked chili pepper flakes to this. It gives it a bit of a twist and tastes divine. I do want to add that I always use organic ingredients. You do not have to use them for this, but its at your discretion. Whatever your heart desires. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

  • 1 Ezekiel English muffin
  • 1 leaf of fresh basil ( sliced)
  • 3 black olives sliced
  • 1 fresh organic tomato
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 5 mozzarella cubes

Take the olive oil and spread on the Ezekiel muffin. Place the muffin in the toaster. Let it brown. Once it is brown, place the basil on it , then layer the olives and tomato and then place the mozzarella cubes on top. Sprinkle with a bit of pepper or cracked red pepper. You can also pair this with a small side salad of Aragula greens and a bit of olive oil. This is the perfect start to any morning .pexels



Yoga for the Spirit

I’ve always loved Yoga, but I never realized what it could do for you on a spiritual basis. Yes, you here things and read stories on these people who claim that Yoga changed their lives, but until you actually practice it everyday, and realize the basis behind it, it becomes a entirely new workout. I tried my first Yoga class years ago, and I would go here and there , but until about a year ago, I started going at least three times a week. I started reading on the fundamentals and how it really works your body, mind and spirit. The more I read, I started becoming obsessed with the practice. Every time I traveled, I would find a yoga class or take my mat and do my yoga on my balcony or in my room. Here I am a year later, and it has truly changed my life. I can’t get enough of the way it makes me feel. I incorporate a class at least three times a week, and the other days ( which I try to work ), I find my mat, and get to work. The spiritual side of yoga is a whole other story. The calmness that it brings in your life is unreal. I feel my focus is better on my day to day tasks, and I find that I have truly slowed down my living. I embrace the small things, and find more time saying No to the things that really don’t matter to me. I am spending more time with my family because that is what truly matters the most. I have found that my sleeping is more solid . I truly feel blessed on how yoga has changed my life. I find that reflection everyday is what ground me and truly makes me appreciate how blessed I really am. I’m more in tune with my health. I feel like my mat is my best friend. Yoga
