  • The Peppermint Push.  
    • A whiff of peppermint may pep up your fitness routine and coax your body to work a little harder.  Studies have shown that the smell of buttered popcorn or strawberries has the same effect.
  • Spice for your Life:  Most are tropical and you will probably have to purchase them in bulk or powered form.
    • Allspice - This tropical herb has a complex aroma and is useful for indigestion.
    • Cinnamon - This tasty spice has potent antimicrobial action and can settle an upset stomach.
    • Cloves - have proven pain-relieving and have antiseptic properties.
    • Garlic - called Russian penicillin, this pungent bulb is useful in preventing our major killers - heart disease and cancer.
    • Ginger - The world's best nausea preventative, ginger also is useful in treating arthritis.
    • Red Pepper - This spice, which is native to America, works on pain by three different mechanisms.
    • Sesame - The seed of this plant are a great source of antioxidants and other therapeutic chemicals.
    • Turmeric - This yellow spice shows great promise in treating arthritis and diabetes.
  • Basic Scrub Recipe:
    • 1 tablespoon pure safflower, sweet almond or grapeseed oils (as a base oil)
    • 1 1/2 cups pure granulated cane sugar (for sensitive or delicate skin) or same amount of granulated raw sugar for normal skin.
    • 3/4 to 1 1/2 cups raw, unfiltered honey (organic, if possible)
    • 20 to 30 drops of essential oil of lavender
    • 10 drops essential oil of rose geranium (if desired)
    • USE GLOVES when using any type of Essential Oil, especially rose or eucalyptus.
    • pour the base oil into a bowl containing the sugar and toss with your fingers until it feels like the oil is evenly distributed, coating the grains of sugar.  Add the honey, a little at a time, until the mixture forms a very soft paste.  If you can form it into little piles that hold their shape, you need to add more honey; don't dilute it with water.  When you have achieved a spreadable consistency, blend in the essential oils.  You'll have enough scrub for one or two treatments.  To store leftover scrub, refrigerate in a covered glass container.  Use within two weeks.

      • Big glass of water w/ 1/4 tsp.. vit. C powder to drink.

      • Unplug everything. Enjoy the quiet or music, chants, visualizations.

    • Combine all ingredients in a comfortable tub. Lie back, relax and clear
      your mind. Breathe deeply, feel your abdomen rise and fall, inhaling and
      exhaling completely. Allow yourself at least one full hour for soaking.

    • If you enjoy this particular type of relaxation technique consider this;
      hot springs guidebooks are available which could direct you to a wonderful
      world of naturally therapeutic destinations for your next vacation or

      awake. Remember, falling asleep in the tub can produce a nasty drowning.

      responsible for your own safety.
