Getting Warm on the Inside

WARMTH TIP | You Are What you Eat
warm teaIf you’re often chilled in the winter, top up on warm foods. Eliminate iced drinks and raw foods for a while, and keep your insides nurtured with hot beverages and cooked seasonal foods, including lots of root vegetables.

Keep it up until you feel warm on the inside! :)

Home Remedy Corner for Your Back

Home Remedy Corner for Your Back ~ InnerVitalityFirst Aid*
Arnica Montana Homeopathic Remedy can be used (while waiting for medical attention) for joint sprain/strain inflammation, head traumas, and internal bleeding after concussion. Keep it in your first aid kit! Also, if you feel you can’t get your head comfortable on your pillow ~ this may your remedy.

*Consult your homeopathic doctor for information.

Back Aches & Pain
For a Compress, find some gauze or a clean piece of fabric. Dilute/mix Eucalyptus (if daytime) or Benzoin Essential Oil* with a carrier oil such as Grapeseed Oil; add to the fabric. Press and hold.

A Soothing Bath is another option. Try a good quality Lavender or Roman Chamomile Essential Oil* diluted and mixed with a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil before adding to bath water.

*Adults: 5 E.O. drops max per 15ml carrier oil. Consult your holistic health practitioner for contraindications.

Letting Go, Moving Forward
Our back can be associated with our past ~ if you’re living there, remembering a time of great happiness or ambitions not realized, try Honeysuckle Bach Flower Remedy.

For Strength & Vitality
The back also represents what we carry ~ if you feel you have insufficient physical/emotional strength to carry the burdens of life (or daily affairs, though you often succeed), try Hornbeam Bach Flower Remedy.

Musculo-skeletal Juice
From Herbalist Peter Laker, blend: half a carrot, half a celery stalk, a wedge of apple, and a little parsley. Yum!
