Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway with Little Moon Essentials.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Little Moon Essentials is helping us raise Awareness   

As we continue to create awareness about this disease that affects 1 out of 8 women (click here for more information.) One way to help cope with stress hormones is to have a nightly ritual. Rituals help the body ground down and produce oxytocin, the feel good hormone.  Taking a bath or using lotion or aromatherapy before bedtime is the perfect prescription. Little Moon Essentials is an organic bath and body company from Colorado. They produce beautiful aromatherapy sprays, lotions, sugar scrubs and bath salts. We have teamed up with Little Moon Essentials to give away one full size gift box a week to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness month. We love them because their products contain essential oils that are nature’s perfect prescription for making you feel better.

Little Moon Essentials

Here are some of my favorite essential oils for relaxation that are in Little Moon Essentials products:

Lavender is the superstar in the essential oil world. It too has anti-microbial, fungal and viral activity to it. It also in an analgesic, sedative, antiaxiolitic, it helps with headaches, lice, cysts, muscle pain, digestive issues, depression, nervousness and many other mood disorders. It can also help with PMS as wellbeing. Lavender is a wonderful first aid remedy, especially for burns; it is among the safest and most widely used essential oils. Lavender was used during the Victorian times for fainting. There are over 350 studies on lavender  demonstrating everything from mood enhancement and balance to pain relief. It brings balance both physically and emotionally. I like many uses for lavender. For relaxation my favorite aromatherapy scent is Clear skies Ahead by Little Moon Essentials.

Rosemary:

Rosemary was burned in French hospitals to purify the air up until the 20th century. This essential oil is also an excellent anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiviral. It is an excellent antiseptic as well and why is was used in hospitals a long time ago. It is an excellent tonic and is very similar to lavender as far as uses but rosemary is more of a stimulant and lavender is more of a sedative or has a calming nature to it. Research has demonstrated that it helps with memory and cognition. Rosemary can be used in cooking. I have used the essential oil diffused to help in memory and recall for test taking. A great mixture to help with cognition is to use a few drops of rosemary, lemon, orange and lavender in a spray bottle with distilled water to lift mood.

Rose  Rose is a beauty favorite, It is used in many perfumes body oils and face creams. Egyptian rose, Rose helps ground and center you before bedtime. A recent study demonstrated aromatherapy with rose oil can reduce anxiety

Euclayptus: when we think of cough drops we think of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is used for treating the common cold and all its side effects like coughing, mucous, sinus infections sore throat. Other uses are for insect bites and itching. Eucalyptus oil also has anti viral, fugal and bacterial effects. My favorite use for eucalyptus is during a cold. I like to take a bowl of hot water and create a tent with a towel over my head draped around the bowl. I will put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in inhale the steam. It works wonders for any cold, or virus and opens my repository passages.

If you think of health as simply swapping apples for cookies or getting a flu shot, you’re only seeing part of the picture.?? Complete wellness means maintaining balance in body, mind and spirit -which is not always easy to do if you’re the kind of person who puts themselves last in line for TLC. “As women, we tend to take on more than we can chew,” says Elizabeth Trattner, an integrative health expert in Miami, Florida. “No one wrote the handbook on how much should women juggle.” Take control of your well-being and care for yourself with these wellness tips.

Care for Your Spiritual Side

Get out in nature: To best feel spiritually fulfilled, step outside at least once a day to see the beauty in the natural world. “What happens is that you’ve disconnected from things around you,” says Trattner. “Whether it’s the woods, the ocean, a lake or even a flower shop, by being in nature you’ll feel the powerful effects of harmonizing with nature.”

Make it work by: leaving your electronic devices at your desk — or at least turned off — during your outdoor time. You can’t truly immerse yourself in nature if you’re distracted by a screen.
Learn how to meditate: No matter what your religion or belief system, daily meditation can help you connect with your spiritual self. It can also help you find deeper purpose and meaning in your life.
