***  If anyone is struggling with a Sore Throat, especially a sever one along with Major Congestion and Stuffiness, we'll add 2 drops of the Young Living's, Lavender Essential oil and 1 drop of Young Living's, Oregano Essential Oil ( I wouldn't recommend ingesting the Oregano for little ones.  It is a little spicy to the taste buds and can burn...  I do however, rub it on the bottoms of their feet, chest, back and neck, with a carrier oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, which they love.)  As I, Mummy, have said before and will say again, it's always good to give disclaimers.  Not all Essential Oils are created equal.  When selecting an essential oil, I wouldn't use just any out on the market today, especially those brands who are cheep knock offs, trying to imitate Young living and are all about hype.  Oh, I use to use all of them, until I learned the hard way.  There was once, when I used a certain oil,  that I shall remain nameless, that put me in hospital from toxic posing, which lead to a host of other problems, which lead me to search my oils more carefully and only use the best, which again, we feel is Young Living.  I mummy, after being an aromatherapiest, esthetician and reflexologist for over 15 years, will use no other kind of oil but one, which has to be a therapeutic grade and focuses on the seed to seal process, which is everything and again, is why I have chosen Young Living's Essential Oils.  Young Living has set the standard for essential oils excellence and has been in business for over 30 years.  They have laid the ground work for many companies that try to mimic their line.  When searching for an essential oil, look at how the oils are distilled, in order to truly know its quality.  Contact the manufacture and ask them, about their distillation process.  If they can’t answer or answer with many distillation processes, be careful.  Remember, the more distillation the less health benefits, the less distillation the more the health befits, which is why we feel, Young Living is the best.  It's amazing to us, that the founder of Young Living, Gary Young, is so committed to the purity of these oils, he has even been placed in a distillery machine, in order to find and maximize and best way to distill each flower, fruit and spice in order to ensure the highest quality of oil.  Talk about commitment and determination. It's this commitment and determination, you'll experience in each drop of your oil.)

 

 

 

The Beauty of Lemon in the morning

One of the greatest ways, to start your day off right, in order to get everything re-hydrated, from your long night’s rest of dehydrating, is to enjoy a cup of good old Lemon Water.  Doctors, say you should drink 2 glasses of water, first thingevery morning, before anything else, again, in order to hydrate your internal organs.  It is also recommended by Naturopathic Doctors, to add Lemon, to your morning water because it strengthens the pancreatic juices and aids in better digestion throughout your day.  I mummy, have found, that by drinking a warm cup of lemon water, helps the water sit better on my tummy, not to mention, making the plain water better tasting.  I don't know about you but I'm not the biggest cold drink fan in the morning, especially on an empty stomach.   If you've not tried this before we highly recommend you try it today and start enjoying all the wonderful health benefits for yourself and family.  It's really easy to do and takes no time at all. :) :) :)  

 

We've included two ways you can make and enjoy your early morning cups of Lemon Water and we use both ways every morning at our cottage.

 

The 1st Way:

 

  • Boil some water on the stove ( we try not to use a microwave, since it is been proven to actually change the molecular structure of water, which makes it harder for your body to recognize and throws the taste off as well.) :( :( :(

 

  • While the water is boiling, wash your Lemon, in order to get any grim off during any process before getting to you (we use seventh generation dish soap, which should be obtained at any local store ), then cut your Lemon in half and squeeze half into a mug, placing the half, you've just squeezed into the mug of juice.

 

  • Next Pour the boiling water over your mug of lemon and juice and let set for 5 min and then enjoy.  (You’ll find since you need to drink 2 glasses of water you would have to use a whole lemon for 2 cups or 16oz of water.  I mommy, only drink one cup of warm lemon water and drink my second glass just as cold water unless it's cold out then I do two mugs.)

 

 

The 2nd Way, The Easiest:

 

  • I mommy, use hot tap water, to the point of almost boiling (Our cottage has a whole house filtration system, which is why we feel safe using our tap water, if not, I would boil the water, like we mentioned above.  Again, we never use a microwave.) 

 

  • Next I add 2 drops of my wonderful Young Living's, Lemon Essential Oil (the price of the oils is half of that of the bags of lemons, I would use in a month from the store.)  When selecting an essential oil, I wouldn't use just any out on the market today, especially those who are all hype and are a cheep knock off of Young Living.  Oh, I use to use all of them, until I learned the hard way.  There was once, when I used a certain oil,  that I shall remain nameless, that put me in hospital from toxic posing, which lead to a host of other problems, which lead me to search my oils more carefully and only use the best.  I mummy, after being an aromatherapiest, esthetician and reflexologist for over 15 years, will use no other kind of oil but one, which has to be a therapeutic grade and focuses on the seed to seal process, which is everything and is why we have chosen, Young Living's Essential Oils.  Young Living has set the standard for essential oils excellence and has been in business for over 30 years.  They have laid the ground work for many companies that try to mimic their line.  When searching for an essential oil, look at how the oil is distilled in order to truly know its quality.  The more distillation the less health benefits the less distillation the more the health befits, which is why we feel Young Living is the best.  It's amazing to us, that the founder of Young Living, Gary Young, is so committed to the purity of these oils he has even been placed in a distillery machine, in order to find and maximize the best way to distill each flower, fruit and spice in order to ensure the highest quality of oil.  Talk about commitment and determination. It's this commitment and determination you'll experience in each drop of your oil.)

 

***Also, we put 2 drops of Young Living's, Lemon essential oil in every glass of water we drink throughout the day, which is always helpful for the digestive and lymphatic system and love to put it in our tea.
