Wellness to Well-Being

Organic-Tea 2
Numi Organic Pu-erh is one of my favorite teas. It is a dark, rich and earthy tea that you can purchase in brick-form like this one. What’s cool is that you break off a piece – like you would a chocolate bar – and toss it in a tea pot […]

Pu-erh Tea Pure Me


Garlic-Cloves 1
Here is something you can prepare for the week ahead. I take a whole garlic bulb, slice it in half, add a couple drops of olive oil and place in the oven on 350 until tender. Of course spreading warm roasted garlic on good bread is a fabulous treat, but […]

Food Prep: Roast Garlic


Roast-Veggie 2
I like to prepare foods that I can use throughout the week. This week found a container of cherry tomatoes for $1.29 at the local produce store along with a package of sliced baby bella mushrooms on sale for $1.68. You can roast them dry or toss them together in […]

Peacetime 2
I have been using this combination for a while now as I get into bed at night. A combination of frankincense, sandalwood and ylang ylang, all with relaxing and restorative properties, I find a few drops helps to create a peaceful feeling as I lay my head down on the […]

essential oil 5
Peppermint has been used for centuries as a natural aid. I use it to make mouthwash, in tea for digestion, or a whiff to release a tension headache. Recently, two of my friends complaining of the onset of a tension headache, inhaled a couple of breathes of 100 percent pure […]

Peppermint Oil For Tension Headache


Diet-Exercise
In the past two years I have refined many of my eating habits even though I considered what I previously ate as “healthy”. And it was healthy, for the most part, though when I really paid attention to these choices is when I began noticing how much better I felt, […]

Taking Charge of Health


raw
Welcome to the holiday madness! The time of year when dinner party’s run amuck and company outings are fueled with seasonal offerings that can be full of chemicals, processed junk, or foods that just don’t agree with us. Yet we consume them anyway. It’s OK to cheat here and there […]

Eating Gone Mad

Today I went to “SPA DAY” at Better Life Whole Foods, a health food store in Springfield, Massachusetts, in fact, the oldest health food store in the Springfield area. Thinking I arrived late, well later I guess than the time I had in my head, I fell perfectly into the […]
