Feng Shui – Sunshine


Vitamin D deficiency has become prevalent in many countries due to a lack of outdoor activity and perhaps an inflated fear of skin cancer. The body produces vitamin D in response to the skin’s exposure to sunlight. Try to spend at least 15 minutes in the sunshine each day, and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to do the same. This prevents many diseases, including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers!…

Aromatherapy Emotion Blends

A guide to using organic essential oils to treat emotions, using an aromatherapy emotion blend to enhance a positive result.

We hope that life won’t make us feel sad, angry, or stressed out. Unfortunately, it does. Aromatherapy can help you get a clear, calm, and relaxed mind that promotes positive thinking. “Don’t Let Your Emotions Run Your Life.”

How many of you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)? I suffered from SAD for a very long time. When I was studying for my Aromatherapy Certification, I was over-joyed to find that essential oils could help with SAD. I put essential oils to work, for myself, instantly. After a few trials and errors, I found some blends that worked for me.

Try these unique aromatherapy blends to overcome your emotional situations. Blend the recommended essential oils and add 3 to 5 drops of the blend to water in an aroma lamp, diffuser, or oil burner.

Lift up your spirit :
2 drops of bergamot essential oil
2 drops of grapefruit essential oil
1 drop of orange essential oil
1 drop of frankincense essential oil

Eliminate your anger:
2 drops of cedarwood essential oil
2 drops of rose essential oil
2 drops of palmarosa essential oil

Balancing your busy life:
6 drops of peppermint essential oil
6 drops of lavender essential oil

3 drops of marjoram essential oil
3 drops of thyme essential oil

2 drops of sandalwood essential oil
2 drops of juniper essential oil
2 drops of ylang ylang essential oil

You can add bergamot for reducing depression, clary sage for calming tension, or marjoram for eliminating loneliness.

Bring Happiness, Laughter, and Sunshine into your Heart and Life.


NaBloPoMo – January 4, 2014

1 A January 2014 BlogHer


This morning started out beautifully; lots of blue sky and a bright sun. Today was our day to babysit our youngest grandson. It was going to be a great day. I opened the door and raised the curtains, so some sun could get into the house. My grandson needs his Vitamin D and it is too cold to take him outside, so I figure a little sun shining on him in the house would help some.
We enjoyed our morning with our grandson. When mommy got of work, she stopped to get her grocery shopping done. That was a reminder of what was headed our way. We’ve been hearing it for days now, but today was such a nice day it was hard to think of a big winter storm headed our way. I suppose today was like the calm before the storm.
Once we got home, we started our cold weather preparations; wrapping pipes, getting anti-freeze into the vehicles, cleaning out the fireplace, bringing in wood, covering the wood outside so that it wouldn’t get wet because the rain starts tomorrow afternoon. Then the temperature will plummet about 20 degrees in a 30 minute time-frame.
Once we finished, and was able it sit down, we pulled up our favorite weather forecaster to catch the latest weather news. It seems that the Arctic front we are waiting on moved in from Canada overnight and is diving south.
By the time it reaches North Alabama, there will be more than 60 consecutive hours of below freezing temps and a majority of that time will be below 20 degrees, with wind chills below 0. We are supposedly getting a dusting to 1″ of snow.
If we keep power and I am able to get on the internet, I will keep you posted on how this big winter storm is playing out over North Alabama.
Keep Warm!

Daily Prompt: The Zone

Daily Prompt: The Zone
by michelle w. on June 2, 2013

Tell us about your favorite way to get lost in a simple activity — running, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, whatever. What’s it like when you’re in “the zone”?

I get lost in ‘the zone’ when I am gardening; being outside in the sunshine, with my fingers in the dirt.

Eat Yellow For Health!

For me, Yellow is an instant mood booster, reminding me of sunshine, joy, and happiness. Yellow fruits and vegetables are just some of Mother Nature’s health benefits. Eating healthy yellow fruits and vegetables nourishes the body, mind, and soul.
Yellow fruits and vegetables are nutritional powerhouses. They contain bioflavonoids and carotenoids that function as antioxidants. Eating yellow fruits and vegetables is a great way to get Vitamin C.
Yellow fruits and vegetables contain nutrients that will help digestion, the heart, the immune system, and vision. Other natural benefits include: stronger bones and teeth, wound healing, and healthy skin.

Yellow herbs are also good for health. The herb goldenseal can be used as a diuretic, astringent, antiseptic and it is also believed to heal skin rashes. Yellow dock is often used to help eliminate toxins, improve blood health and the flow of bile and other digestive juices, which can assist in the break down of fatty foods. Dandelion is known to assist with weight control, anemia and eliminate and reduce indigestion and gas build up.
*NOTE: Make sure you talk to your doctor before consuming any herbs for medicinal purposes.

Color Therapy: Yellow

•yellow is warm (yang) and is associated with things sunny, cheerful, joyous, optimistic, practical, confident, and illuminating. It is also associated with wisdom, knowledge, logic, and the mind.

•Yellow is a nerve stimulant; it can be helpful with depression, fear, and tension, and can soothe mental exhaustion.

•Because it is a sharpening color that enhances alertness, concentration, communication, and focus, you will often find yellow on food packaging.
