Firstly, I wish to thank all of the people who passed through my life this year.
For honourable reasons, or not - you taught me something about myself.
For those who watched my year unfold and supported me as much as I supported them - I hope I taught you something as well.
In 2019, let's remember to be honest, be kind, and be open no matter how harsh the elements.
Breath deeply, because you can!
Happy New Year friends
With the onset of winter, our thoughts turn to our health as we do our best to combat colds, flu's and anything airborne.
"Naturally" we reach to essentials oils because we're told that they are good for us - and they are. But do you really know what their benefits are?

Keep those germs at bay AND by all means...
Breathe Deeply, because you can!
Well, it's been a few months since my last blog post. A few busy months which have distracted my thoughts, focus and intentions. Every so often it's necessary to purge and refocus to prepare for new experiences coming around the corner.
I'm sure you have heard about this one:
On October 17-2018, Cannabis becomes legal here in Canada (Federal Cannabis Act). What does it mean, how will it change our lives, our well being, our health and what should we do to prepare?

Here is the Government link for starters:
It's all new to us and the rules will be ever greening (no pun intended). Stay informed, don't take chances.
Speak with your Dr. about the use of Cannaboids. No retailers are legally allowed to sell cannaboid based products without a prescription. Even after the law comes into affect.
Oh... and as I always say... "Breathe Deeply" ; )
How can it be that finally, after a long harsh winter we now have more to contend with?
As if spring allergy season isn't enough here's another one to add to the the mix: snow mold.
Today, with my son home from University (free labour and good company are always welcomed), we raked up the debris from fall leaves (thanks neighbours) and discovered a few patches of icky cob-web-like fusions on areas of the lawn. SNOW MOLD!
Mould allergies and allergic rhinitis, often called hay fever, affect about 10 to 20 per cent of the population, Dr. Paul Keith, an allergist and associate professor at McMaster University, said in an interview.
If you are sensitive to mold and subjective to pollen allergies:
Happy 2018 everyone! Hope that everyone reading this is having a safe, warm and active winter season. Albeit challenging with the recent cold snaps and snow storms, it is important to get out and take in the fresh air in order to get the capillaries rejuvenated. But careful about how long your exposing your skin to extreme temperatures, moisturize and keep hydrated.
Did you know that not only water counts towards your daily hydration levels? Organic teas, Kombuchas, to name only a couple.
This is the perfect season to focus on exfoliation with lesser UV interaction. Furnaces running frequently further contribute to the ongoing dryness here in Alberta. Check your home humidity levels.
Most importantly, don't forget to use a great daily moisturizer. Wait... here's one now:
Created originally for tattoo care, Thirsty Body Lotion was discovered to alleviate symptoms of eczema. Soothes dry surface skin without irritation.
