With the holidays in full swing and the New Year headed our way, we have so much to do in less than a month! Holiday preparation, cooking, shopping, parties, gift giving (make your own!), not to mention the stress, lack of sleep, and anxiety that goes along with this time of year. And how can we forget the nagging thought in the back of our minds that when December is in our rear view mirror, we’ll be tackling the New Year’s resolution list to eat better, lose weight, get healthy, exercise more, and destress. Well I’ve got the answer for every one of those things on your to do list and for the little voice in your head telling you after the holidays, there needs to be a significant change coming! The Answer…. ESSENTIAL OILS!!!
The benefits of essential oils are endless, cook with them, add them to your baking recipes instead of extracts or dried spices, give them as hostess gifts or presents for everyone on your list. Holiday stress? Use lavender for relaxing and better sleep, or Serenity or Balance to help fight a run-down mind, body, and soul. Use
grapefruit for holiday hangovers and cellulite. Kind of a Scrooge this time of year?? Boost your mood with Wild Orange! Resolutions got you down? Use lemon to detoxify, Slim and Sassy to boost metabolism and help lose weight, ginger for digestion, even cinnamon for fatigue and immune boosting.
Oils are the answer to all your prayers! 😉 Just want your house to smell like the holidays? They can even do that for you! Just diffuse them into the air, sit back with the tree lite, drinking peppermint and chocolate while you read your favorite magazine loaded with holiday recipes, while you think to yourself. “Ohhh I could use clove oil instead of ground spices!” All the while reaping all the benefits!
Here are some great holiday oils that you can diffuse into the air, cook with, use them topically, and even add a couple drops to your daily glasses of water.
