USING ESSENTIAL OILS FOR DEODORIZING & CLEANING

uSING ESSENTIAL OILS TO DEODORIZE & MORE




You know, you don't have to always use harsh chemical-based solutions to keep your house, office, class or gym smelling fresh and great. There are natural ways to deodorize small and large spaces/rooms, closets, bathrooms and even trash cans. I am not sure about you but as I get older, I am more conscious of how chemicals are affecting our health in various ways. We constantly inhale and even digest toxins through our skin, breathing and touching.  Essential oils and  herbs are great choices for the environment.

It's funny. Out society call natural ingredients, substances and materials "alternatives" when it should be the other way around. The natural existed from the beginning of creation from the Creator and anything that is a substitute or deviant from the original is really the alternative!!!

I am  in a constant process and progress of replacing harsh cleansers, detergents,  and  air-fresheners with natural or less harsh/harming/toxic products. You can find/Google a lot of natural remedies and solutions or alternative ingredients that you can CY (Create yourself). These essential oils work as a repellent Here are two natural and non-toxic methods to keep  rooms and spaces smelling fresh and deodorized. 

**Deodorizing Rooms: You can use cotton cloths, pads or balls  to dip into citrus (orange, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, etc.), and eucalyptus, rosemary, tea tree, peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon and lemongrass essential oils. Place it in corner floor of rooms or in something creative (faux plants, vases) or in waste/trash/garbage cans. You can spray or put drops of these oils in potpourri to help and space smell great.  

**Cleanser: Citrus, Lavender Minty oils work as an anti-bacterial and some anti-microbial agent in cleansers. Use them in kitchen, bathrooms and any room.  One simple formulation is filling a spray bottle with 2 cups of water,  1-3 teaspoons of Castile Soap and 10 to 25 drops of essential oils (depending on how strong of an aroma you want lingering in the room after cleaning). Shake solution a 5-10 times and begin spraying and wiping. 

** Bed Bug Infestation Prevention:  Shake drops of peppermint/tea tree essential oil or cayenne pepper near bottom legs of your bed, near floors, on corners and edges of floor near walls and doors. You can also do this on mattress creases and around trimmings/edges of mattress and pillows, and underneath sheets where bed bugs like to hide as well. In my research to find harmless ways to rid of certain bugs especially bed bugs, I found that cayenne pepper and these essential oils are used because they suffocate bed-bugs eventually killing them. If you suspect any, try this aforementioned alternative solution  immediately to stop potential infestation and protect yourself from getting bitten.  

Note/Bonus: Your bedroom will smell great for weeks, I tried this and my bedroom smelled like mint for weeks but I was fine with it. I did this when I worked as a residential manager /supervisor and had a bed bug situation where we had to heat steam the that house I worked in so I my routine became, taking off all of my clothes as soon as I walked in my own home, place my clothes in plastic bag, throw them in the hot dryer first, washed in hot/warm water then back in the dryer. The heat from the dryer kills the bugs as well. Other natural solutions used is baking soda and pesticide grade diatomaceous earth powder and lavender essential oil. 

*I found a simple video on how to use some of these oils and powders as a bug repellent:

FROM OUR KITCHEN ON THANKSGIVING

From our Kitchen on THANKSGIVING 



Ok, so I know this is a laaaaaate late presentation but we have been so busy and taking breaks in between tasks, holiday activities and travel. I wanted to post this the day of or after Thanksgiving of the special time with my daughter bonding while cooking a traditional meal minus the turkey. Oh, and dinner came out pretty tasty I might add. My daughter also made her first pumpkin pie from scratch later on this day and it tasted similar to sweet potato pie. After we cooked at home, we went over to our parents and one of my brother's home to eat dinner. That's good. 

Enjoy!

REALLY? CELL PHONES DURING THANKSGIVING FEAST???

Thanksgiving Dinner & Cell Phones 


So, Which one of these illustrations will be your reality during Thanksgiving dinner this year?


I hope not. I know that this is someone's reality not only during family-time or holidays but it has become your norm. My recommendations are to put down your cell phones at least during Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner time-making a conscious effort to spend quality time together using VERBAL communication. 

Ways to improve your holiday or dinner experience:
1. Make an agreement to hurry and get all of the photos of your food and dinner members out of the way before digging in. 

2. Inform others that you are taking quick pictures or typing quick texts, and then redirect your attention back to them. 

3. Let the textee on the other end know that you will get back to them after spending some time with family, friends and other loved ones. 

4. Just put the phone down to enjoy your food and for proper digestion instead of rushing or taking large bites in order to engage in cell phone activities. 

Look at what Pew Research finds on the percentage of those who oppose or don't mind using cell phones during dinner:

_____________________________________________________
Here's a short recap of a previous article I written about increasing coactivity/coaction within your relationships:

Nurturing relationships takes patience, impassion, empathy, unselfishness, care and love. 
Also, check out my life coaching site Here! for more info and if you need a life coach who use biblical principles/values.

In today’s culture of advance technology and its development/derivatives: Social networking such as Facebook-Twitter-The New Myspace-Blogging-Chatting-Webinar-Internet games etc., have invaded Privacy and Confidentiality! There is no more! We are easily tracked and can easily experience identity theft. It’s a no-brainer that we are bombarded with these distractions if we’re not practicing balance, wisdom and self-control from over-indulgence and gluttony. 

Key Re-establishing relationships through:
  • Coactivity entails spending time together, engaging in leisure/recreational/fitness and other activities, planning and co-creating, and brainstorming together.
  • Coaction can produce increased levels of intimacy in any relationship; even friendships.What's diminishing?Answer: Coactivity 
Definitions: n. 1. Unity of action (Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.) Coaction: Joint action; (Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.) Relationships being effected: Healthy Friendships; Nurturing/Nourishing premarital relationships; Healthy child-parent/adolescent parent relationships...

PART III PUMPKIN MAKES IT BETTER

NURTURED BY PUMPKIN 


Yes, I have to talk about the wonders of adding pumpkin to you life again. Should I do a post about the many foods and products you can create with pumpkin? hmmm. maybe. Anywhooo, I'm so happy for one of my clients Ms. K, who shared with me that my natural pumpkin hair and body butter took her away her itchiness on her skin. 



During her last appointment, I shampooed, conditioned and oiled Ms. K's hair and scalp using my pumpkin oil blend and a leave in conditioner (yes the L.O.C. -liquid, oil & cream method) before re-twisting her hair roots. I explained the many benefits of pumpkin and how some of us only eat or use it during Fall season when it should be a regular part of our diet. As you can see below, I braided Ms. K's locs, sat her under the dryer for approximately 15 minutes because she will leave it braided for rest of the week before loosening braids to achieve the wavy look she desired in this photo. Ms. K noticed my supply of butters and  asked about them. I let her smell the samples and she fell in love with my Whipped Pumpkin Butter and got one to go! A few days later, she text me to inform me that when her skin was itching, she applied the pumpkin butter and it made the itch go away. Naturally, I smiled.
