Creating a spa experience at home could be one of the best options for healing and relaxation. Add two cups of Epsom salt and 15 drops of an essential oil like lavender into a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes or more. After bath time showering with cold water feels great. When I research techniques for physical refinement, I often come across suggestions for ice baths, cold showers, etc. However, cold showers are not the most pleasant. But after a bath or a sauna, cold showers feel refreshing and really good. Following the cold shower moisturizing with jojoba plus high quality essential oils. Also it is beneficial to invest in only pure botanical products.
I was taking a morning walk because health focused researches say that it’s important to expose your eyes to unfiltered natural light in the morning to have your circadian rhythms in balance. It’s okay if it’s cloudy, the light is still there. I feel a lot better after a 15-20min morning walk. My routine right after I wake up is to get dressed, wash my face with cold water, and start oil pulling with coconut oil and a few drops of essential oil like oregano, tea tree, or mint. Anyways, during this chilly midwest November walk, I noticed a few landscapers digging up rose bushes that I admired on my summer walks. I asked them if they plan to replant them somewhere else; but they said, no; the roses will be thrown out 😥. So I asked them if I can take them. The guys were so kind that they even helped wrap the roses so it’s easier to transport. Now I got 5 rescue rose bushes to take care of. I have a small yard so I planted some in my garden and shared some with my next door neighbor. She often admired my summer flower garden and said that if I ever needed extra planting space, I am welcome to use her yard. Definitely a win win situation- she gets to enjoy roses in her yard and I feel content that I was able to rescue these beauties and find them a new home. Summer is going to be 🌹🌹🌹🏵🌹🏵🌹🌹🌹🏵🏵🏵. If you suspect that something good is going to waste – ask and you may end up with a beautiful gift. It’s crazy how much good stuff gets thrown out daily instead of repurposing. Not just plants; brand new clothes, furniture, electronics, food, etc. If I ever outgrow an item, I always drive it to Goodwill. But so many people seem to rather send it to a landfill. And so this is how our actions contribute to slave labor, pollution, and a decline in product quality. In reality there is so much abundance of everything in this world. If only the collective would just get out of victim, greed, waste, laziness, and scarcity consciousness. I Am sending blessings to all Beings on Earth to be free of negative energy and corruption and to be blessed with purity, clarity, and selflessness.
I love vegetables and fruits and the Omega juicer. There are so many possibilities with it. Recently I’ve been making a lot of celery juice. But I also made a delicious tart cranberry juice, white grapefruit juice, and orange juice. I also love juicing herbs like cilantro, dill, and parsley. Adding a lemon into the herbal mix makes these juices taste lighter but still very potent.
For a while I’ve ignored astrology, astronomy and the moon. I thought that I didn’t want anything influencing my experience of life. But after I began reading a book by Jivanmukti I was recommended to reconsider. Noticing all these different cycles doesn’t need to mean that you worship any of it or you believe in it. Paying attention to how your energy is during various cosmic events simply gives you more awareness about yourself. The more you understand yourself, the clearer it will become how to refine and purify your energy and physical body. Awareness doesn’t mean control or trying to manifest anything. True awareness is about emotional surrender.
I love cake and I love simple, whole and pure foods. So I was inspired to experiment. I soaked millet overnight (soaked grains are easier for body to digest I’ve been told.) Then after the millet is prepared, I pour frosting on it. I’ve been making frosting with kefir, cinnamon powder, and sweet stevia powder, and a splash of vanilla mixed together. Add strawberries on top. Cupcake?
I have been focusing on decluttering my home; buying less and enjoying what I already own. During my kitchen clean up I found a stash of all these teas that I collected from Europe. I’m not sure why I didn’t drink them but now I decided to start making baths! And what a great idea this was. I would use the entire package of tea in a big pot, and pour the tea into a bathtub. I use a strainer so that the tea leaves stay out of the bath to avoid clogging. I also added sea salt to the bath. So far I’ve done a rooibos tea bath which made my skin really soft, and a green tea bath that made my skin dewy and healthy. So you can drink tea, make baths with it, make ice cubes with it and melt them on your face. Herbal tea is best.
I heard Epsom salt baths are awesome and that Magnesium absorbs better through the skin. Today I poured half a cup of spirulina powder, half a cup of Hawaiian sea salt, 2 drops of high quality lemongrass essential oil, and placed 2 clear quartz crystals. When I took the crystals out they looked happy and vibrant. This bath felt like I was just at the beach. Before the bath, I recommend to shower first.
