Ditch the Perfume!

Ok… let’s get real for a moment of rant….
Have you experienced any of these symptoms? Irritability, mental vagueness, muscle pain, asthma, bloating, joint aches, sinus pain, fatigue, sore throat, eye irritation, gastrointestinal problems, laryngitis, headaches, dizziness, swollen lymph nodes, spikes in blood pressure, coughing, and burning or itching skin irritations?

If so, it MAY, just MAY be a side effect from the toxic chemicals you are spraying on your body and inhaling. Just sayin….

Some of the most common chemicals in perfumes are ethanol, acetaldehyde, benzaldehyde, benzyl acetate, a-pinene, acetone, benzyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, linalool, a-terpinene, methylene chloride, styrene oxide, dimenthyl sulphate, a-terpineol, camphor, and limonene which can lead to the symptoms above that I mentioned.

Don’t believe me? Why don’t you just try? Stop using perfume for 30 days and see if any of your symptoms subside. Here is a great article below with some more info if you want to educate yourselves … 🤓

New Ab Circuit

You obviously don’t need to use weight if you don’t want to or don’t have them, but DO push yourself to 2 rounds! Make sure your booty stays down in your plank, I got super lazy after 4 rounds of this which isn’t an excuse but my form sucks the last plank! Enjoy! 

Fire Cider

There are so many benefits to this power juice! 

So how is this Fire Cider health tonic and homeopathic remedy good for you?

Let me count the ways:

✅Fresh horseradish is known to be effective against the flu and common cold, tonsilitis, respiratory disorders, urinary tract infections, and pathenogenic fungus.

✅Ginger is used to treat arthritis, muscle pain, upset stomach (motion and morning sickness and general nausea), gas, upper respiratory tract infections, and cough.

✅Onions are used to boost cardiovascular health, bone and connective tissue benefits, and as an anti-inflammatory agent.

✅Garlic is used to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, atherosclerosis, asthma, building the immune system, help level blood sugar, and is used topically to treat fungal infections.

✅Habanero peppers boost your metabolism, and offer headache, sinus, and arthritis relief as well as releasing endorphins.

✅Oranges are great for heart health, as part of a best-case-scenario-anti-cancer-diet, fighting cholesterol, to help in weight loss, and to break up or prevent kidney stones.

✅Lemons are known to aid in digestion, alleviate Meniere’s Disease, kidney stones, and ringing of the ears, cure scurvy (chronic lack of Vitamin C), treat colds and flu, improve the function of blood vessels, and reduce inflammation and retention of water.

✅Turmeric is pretty much the be-all and end-all of health foods. It’s known to delay liver damage, reduce carcinogenic compounds in other foods, make cancer cells more vulnerable to chemo and radiation, inhibit the growth of malignant melanoma and breast cancer, alleviate arthritis symptoms and skin conditions. Heck, maybe I should let the experts describe what the main compound in turmeric -cucurmin- does. Advanced Experimental Medical Biology in 2007 states that, “Curcumin has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and other chronic illnesses.”

✅Raw apple cider vinegar (not plain old cider vinegar!) is known to be a good source of acetic and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), mineral salts, amino acids, and other key components of good nutrition, but it is also a well-loved folk remedy thought to ease digestion, fight obesity and diabetes, wash toxins from the body, kill lice, and reverse aging. Does it do all of that? I dunno. But it surely tastes good and it’s nutritional value is undisputed.

✅Raw honey (locally produced) is a fantastic, all-natural fighter of seasonal allergies. Because bees collect pollen from flowers in your area and then convert it to honey to feed their hives, eating raw, local honey is like a tasty allergy shot. It’s also full of vitamins and minerals, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and makes a great, non-narcotic cough suppressant and throat soother.

The beauty of this, beyond its all-star cast of healthy ingredients, is that it just plain tastes wonderful. We drink a tablespoon (or more!) every morning to maintain health. Well, okay, we MAINLY drink it because we like it, but the health benefits are nice.

When you feel ill, take a slightly larger dose of Fire Cider Health Tonic and Homeopathic Remedy to help boost your immune system. Word has it on the street that it’s an extremely effective hangover cure. So, I want to know… are you curious enough to try it? What do you think?

Fire Cider: Health Tonic and Homeopathic Remedy

*1 large horseradish root scrubbed very well, about 7 inches long

*1 large ginger root about 7 inches long

*1 large onion root and stem end removed and peeled

*1 large orange

*1 lemon

*16 cloves of garlic peeled

*2-4 habanero peppers stems removed

*1 tablespoon ground turmeric

*one drop in each container of young Living vitality pepper essential oil to help absorb turmeric 

*raw apple cider vinegar

*raw honey

Grate the horseradish and ginger roots. Roughly chop the onions, orange, lemon, garlic, and habanero peppers. Stuff them into a half-gallon glass jar with a tight fitting lid or divide evenly between two quart sized canning jars. Sprinkle the turmeric in on top (dividing evenly between the two jars if using quart jars). Pour the raw apple cider vinegar in over the contents, allowing it to settle in through the crevices and adding more so that the contents are submerged. Lay a piece of parchment paper over the rim of the jar, then screw the lid tightly in place. Let the mixture sit in a dark, cool place, allowing it to marry and infuse for 1-4 weeks, shaking once daily. 

I could only go 1 week because I wanted to try it so bad and it had some HEAT to it! I can’t imagine what 4 weeks would taste like, maybe next batch!
After 1-4 weeks, pour the contents into a muslin or cheesecloth lined colander positioned over a stable pot. Let it drain for 30 minutes, then gather the corners of the cloth, twisting and squeezing until you cannot release any more liquid. When it’s fully strained, add honey to the liquid to taste and pour into a sterilized wine bottle or canning jar. Store in a cool, dark place for up to a year, shaking well before using.

Enjoy! ❤️❤️
