Get the Most Out of Your Power Nap

July 30th, 2015

Napping is not just for kids. It’s a great way to quickly refuel and energize when you’re feeling groggy or rundown. Many claim the power nap increases productivity, improves memory and heightens your overall mood. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your power nap.watch T2 Trainspotting 2017 film now

1.  Keep your nap under 20 minutes to avoid sleep inertia. If you feel like you need more sleep, extend your power nap to 50 minutes. Also, remember to set an alarm!

2. Try not to take a power nap in the late afternoon. If you nap at this time of day, you are more likely to fall into a deeper sleep that can leave you feeling sluggish.

3. Before your nap, it’s best to not consume caffeine or foods high in fats & sugars.

4. Find a quiet, comfortable, dark place to take your nap where you won’t be disturb. The darkness helps to increase melatonin, which is the sleep-activating hormone.

5. Apply some calming essential oils to help your body/mind relax. Our 21 drops Calm Blend combines Jasmine, Sweet Orange and Vetiver to make you feel serene, settled and at peace.

6. To complete your power nap, have a good stretch and enjoy the rest of your day without feeling drowsy.

Simple Endive Salad for Fall

November 6th, 2014

Buying vegetables that are in-season are great for your dress size and your budget. Endive, which is closely related to the chicory family, is a tasty fall vegetable that you can prepare raw or cooked. These leafy greens are packed with vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene. Endive has a crisp, clean taste that complements both savory and sweet dishes.

Going into the holiday season, we are always seeking healthy snacks to satisfy that persistent sweet tooth. This simple endive salad is the perfect, light sweet treat that promises to be forgiving on that dress size you’ve worked so hard to maintain.

Ingredients:

1 Belgium Endive

1/3 cup Unsalted Walnuts

 

Directions:

Clean endive, separate the leaves and place on plate. Crumble the unsalted walnuts into the leafy cups. Then crumble the blue cheese or goat cheese over the walnuts. Finally sprinkle each individual leaf with your desired amount of honey, and enjoy!

Essential Oils for Back-to-School

August 20th, 2014

It’s time to say goodbye to the relaxing days of summer and go back to school! While we tend to dread the onslaught of “full on” days, there are essential oils that you can incorporate into your family’s daily routine to help make each stage of the day a tad bit easier! Below is a list of different essential oils you can diffuse during different times of the day.

 

EOs_BacktoSchool_Blog

 

 

Essential oils for the morning:

When my children were smaller, they did not have to be told 1oo times to get out of bed. Instead, they were woken up by the stimulating scents of peppermint and rosemary wafting under their noses. These essential oils will help to perk the whole family up and start the day with alertness and energy.

 

Essential oils for the afternoon:

Waiting in the pick-up line can be a drag, but by spraying calming and uplifting oils into the car (such as grapefruit, sweet orange and jasmine), both you and your children will be in a great mood on the way home from school. This allows for a well-deserved decompression before plowing into the rest of your afternoon schedules.

If your children participate in after-school sports, try some revitalizing oils, such as juniper, cedarwood and cardamom.

To help them focus on homework, diffuse stimulating blends, such as peppermint or rosemary.

 

Essential oils for bedtime:

Long school days, dinner and the homework blitz can leave kids wired at the end of the day. Incorporating relaxing oils, such as vetiver, sandalwood, palmarosa and lavender, into their evening regime will help them unwind and have a restful sleep.

 

Essential oils to build up immunity during the night:

With “back-to-school” comes a breeding of new germs that can assault the healthiest of children. At the slightest sign of a sniffle, or even just as a precaution, I suggest loading up your children with immune-building essential oils, such as eucalyptus, rosewood, ravintsara and tea tree. These will help keep your children from missing important time in the classroom– helping them to be their best self!
