Essential Oils So Naturally Good For You

Here are just some of the uses that essential oils have. Never choose fragrant oils as they are not pure. Essentially, Essential oils are pure. It’s almost like having a first aid kit in your bathroom as they have uses for all sorts of medicinal and cosmetic conditions. Some are a little expensive but that is because it is not as easy to procure the oil from some plants and the cost are more. 

I pinched this information off the Dr Axe site as sometimes it is easier to look at infograms  for information than reading screens of text

Try it you will just love the smell anyway.❤️

Did You Know – 02/18/2019

  1. Diamonds are either rare, nor valuable. In one of the most successful advertising campaigns of all time, De Beers claimed that a man should be spending two months salary on a diamond engagement ring. Then they raised their prices, restricted their supply and created a costly illusion that generations of people still consider to be a mandatory part of the marriage process.

2.  In 1870 two million rabbits were killed every year in Australia, all descended from just 24 released in 1859.  In 1859, a man named Thomas Austin, a landowner in Winchelsea, Victoria imported 24 … Within a number of years, those 24 rabbits multiplied into millions. … By 1890, rabbits werespotted all the way in Western Australia.

3. Airbags deploy between 100 & 200 MPH( 160kph – 322kph.)  If you ride with your feet on the dash you may send our knees through your eye sockets if the airbag is deployed. Police are sharing this photo in hopes of spreading awareness while driving

4. Difference in size between Australia and Austria

5. Ren’e Descartes the French Philosopher, mathematician, and scientist had a fetish for cross-eyed women. He is famous for having made an important connection between geometry and algebra, which allowed for the solving of geometrical problems by way of algebraic equations

Do You Have Nomophobia?

Nomophobia means ‘Love of your Phone’

An increasing number of us are coming to realize that our relationships with our phones are not exactly what a couples therapist would describe as “healthy.”

  1. The time you spend on your phone is time you’re not spending doing other pleasurable things, like hanging out with a friend or pursuing a hobby. Instead of thinking of it as “spending less time on your phone,” think of it as “spending more time on your life.”
  2. What’s your posture like? How’s your breathing? Is whatever you’re doing on your phone making you feel good?
  3. Leave your phone at home while you go for a walk. Stare out of a window during your commute instead of checking your email. Pay attention to your craving. What does it feel like in your body?
  4. When you see someone pull out their phone on the street or an elevator does it make you want to check yours. Use that as a cue to take a deep breath and refrain from checking yours
  5. This is your life. How much of it do you want to spend on your phone?

A subject dear to my heart. I find it so frustrating when the use of phones interfere with the presence of your precious children, a friend, relation anyone that would like your attention. To me personally using your phone in the presence of any one shows that their importance to you is Zero. Another thing which I need to pull myself up about is texting instead of phoning when communicating with friends. Anyway I thought this book looked interesting and found a video that explains very well the diagnosis of those who have anxiety when not near their phone.

Being present whether walking the dog, or visiting or just in the presence of your family is very important.

Did You Know – 02/11/2019

  1. It is illegal in Chicago for lawns to have weeds more than 10 inches tall. According to the Chicago Tribune 2013 “Under Chicago’s ridiculous, contradictory but lucrative ‘weed ordinance,’ that plant might be designated as a weed by some Streets and Sanitation worker and you might be subject to a $600 fine multiplied every day it remains higher than 10 inches.”

“In the past two years the city has collected some $3.7 million from frequently unwitting citizens who had no idea that almost anything in their gardens taller than 10 inches could be termed a weed by a Streets and Sanitation worker who can issue a ticket with no warning to correct or defend the situation.”

2. There is only one stop sign in the whole of Paris – There’s only one STOP sign in the entire city of Paris.  The lucky one is situated at the exit of a building company’s drive, in the rich 16th arrondissement. Concerning the traffic rules in the city centre, it’s simply the right which gets priority.

Source – blog.uniplaces.com –  Very interesting information on Paris.

 

3. Human beings have as many brain cells in their stomachs as cats have in their brains. It’s called the enteric nervous system. The brain in your gut is embedded in the wall of the digestive tract. … An adult’s enteric nervous system is made up of 200 to 600 million nerve cells (neurons). That’s as many neurons as are in a cat’s brain. Together with your “big brain,” the enteric nervous system helps control gastrointestinal function, including the mixing and grinding of food in the stomach and absorption of nutrients in the intestines. A very interesting subject and if you want to read more just go to the source.

4. New Car smell is toxic to humans. The human nose can recognize over 1,000,000,000,000 different smells. People associate the smell with the luxury of having purchased a new set of wheels. But the smell that comes along with your new ride is actually really toxic and can be harmful to your health.Robert Weitz, a certified microbial investigator and founder of RTK Environmental Group , says that the new car scent you’re smelling is actually made up of something called volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. The new car smell occurs when the various materials that make up your car “outgas” and release VOCs.

5.   More wine is drunk per head in the Vatican city than any other country on earth. 

The figures show that residents of the Vatican consume 74 litres of wine on average – roughly equivalent to 105 bottles over the course of a year.

The fact that it only has a population of around 800 people does make it easy for per-capita figures to be distorted ,  however – and in the Vatican there is reportedly a single supermarket supplying everyone with wine almost completely tax-free.

My Isagenix Experience and Cleanse Day

 

I started my Isagenix program on Friday a week ago. I have to say the first few days took a bit of mind control. It was not that I was hungry, it was that I love my food, and am a nibbler so the two shakes for two meals was a bit of a mental struggle for me. Determined, I persevered and looked forward to my meal in the evening with a glass of wine of course. Protein and a plate full, and I mean a plate full of delicious salad, which included everything but the kitchen sink. Avocado, carrots, onions, spinach, lettuce, mung beans, beetroot, fresh broccoli, feta cheese, coriander, basil, parsley, chilies, covered with balsamic, and Lesley’s secret dressing which I will give to you at the end of this story. After an hour I would have a piece of fruit which last week was lychees. I ate around 6:30 PM so it would be at least 16 hours before I would start again. I guess you could say I am incorporating intermittent fasting with it if you count the hours between evening an morning meals.

Yesterday I did my cleanse day which involves drinking this concoction from Isagenix called “cleanse for life” every four hours with heaps of filtered water. I was drinking Kangen water of course.  It is not a laxative which entails purging  it is a cellular nourishing and detoxifying  powder which you drink with filtered water so you are not purging  you are actually supplying your cells with antioxidants and fabulous plant botanicals

Well, that was interesting because I mentally was not looking forward to it but once again determined to do it properly. I was surprised that although I struggled mentally for the first few hours I found I did not get hungry and as the day went on I really found myself not missing the food. The hardest bit was not having my evening meal but got through that with watching a J Lo movie and an Aussie movie then it was time for bed.

Now to my surprise I actually had a great nights sleep which I have not done in months and I feel energized and clear-headed which also was interesting as I thought I would have felt a little sluggish this morning but no, I feel fantastic.

Have I lost weight? I think so, I don’t have scales and have not stood on scales in years so I cannot prove it.  Body wise I do feel lighter if that is any indication and I do believe my clinging dress is not so clingy.

So on to the next week a few more distractions next week so will power required.

Oh, my secret recipe for my dressing well I think I will keep it a secret a little while longer.
