Thrive This Fall – Day 5 of 7


It’s Day 5, and the personal pampering continues.  It takes great dedication to faithfully follow a daily skin care regimen.  With the dry winter air and low indoor humidity, it can be tempting to not cleanse out of concern for stripping the skin of natural oils and moisture.  What if you knew that you could cleanse your face and still protect it?  Today’s Fall tip will do just that!


Need to amp up your moisturizer?  Try adding a little Frankincense or Geranium.  Whatever your skin needs, we’ve got you covered!

Thrive This Fall – Day 4 of 7


It’s Day 4 and time for a little personal pampering.  Whether you’re facing the cold, dry winter or the never-ending summer of the south, changing temperatures and humidity levels can wreak havoc on our skin.  As the trees shed their leaves, we may need to shed a little dull, dry skin.


Here’s a ready-made facial scrub to exfoliate your skin and bring back that glow, naturally; or choose the DIY recipe to do a little exfoliating on your hands and even your feet!


I keep a jar in my guest bathroom. It lets my guests know I think they are special and deserve a little pampering!

And don’t forget about your lips! They are often overlooked and neglected in our skin care regimen. With the holidays coming (family gatherings, mistletoe, New Years Eve…), there may be some extra kissing in your future! 😉


HINT: Either DIY would make a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer, teacher’s gift, or that “just in case” gift!

Thrive This Fall – Day 3 of 7


It’s Day 3 and time for a little Fall comfort!  Anyone out there ready for some football?!?!?  Fall sports and activities are often accompanied by aches and pains.  (Not that any of us are out of shape or not as active as we could be!)  I know some of you have athletes in your family and others are working on your physique.  Whether the change in weather has your arthritis screaming, you had a strenuous workout, you’re overworked from the harvest, or you’re just overworked period, we have the answer for you!  It was presented this year with its new designation as an FDA recognized Over-the-Counter natural pain relief. You might want to order two – one for the medicine cabinet and one for the gym bag!


Besides comfort for the body, how about a little comfort for the tummy?  This delicious Fall soup is just what the doctor ordered to take advantage of seasonal produce and all the wonderful health benefits of essential oils!  (FYI – Clove Vitality is one of the many oils in the October promo for essential rewards participants.  Not on essential rewards yet?  I’ll be glad to show you all the wonderful benefits and help you get started.)

Thrive This Fall – Day 2 of 7


As the air gets cooler, we move inside and close our windows. To you our southern neighbors who probably still have your windows shut and your A/C running, you will have similar challenges. What challenges? Indoor air pollution! We usually think of the spring time when seasonal changes affect our health, but what about the Fall? Not only do we have to deal with all the changes outside, but we have all the indoor pollution once we shut up our homes.

The American Lung Association asks these questions concerning air pollution in our homes:
Do health symptoms improve when you leave the building? Do they return when you come back into the building? If so, you may have an indoor air pollution problem and should explore the following potential sources.
• Is anyone smoking indoors? No one should smoke indoors.
• Can you see or smell mold or mildew?
• Do you use odor-masking chemicals or “air-freshening” devices?
• Has kitchen or food garbage been covered and removed?
• Have you used pesticides recently?
(For the full report and list of potential sources, go to http://www.lung.org/…/how-to-know-if-your-air-is-unhealthy.…)

Here are today’s tips:

For those seasonal coughs that may even be caused by indoor air pollution, try Thieves Cough Drops! You will be amazed at the difference.


Next, replace all your “odor-masking chemicals or ‘air-freshening’ devices” with this easy to make DIY air spray. It’s an easy, cost-effective way to drastically reduce indoor air pollution while giving your family the health benefits of essential oils!


Let’s be proactive this Fall!
