Healing Herbs and Spices

Below is a great image that illustrates some simple spices that can be used to help minor symptoms! 
I'm sure many of us already have these in our spice racks. I even have a handful of these in my Essential Oil collection (Oregano, Thyme, Cinnamon, Mint and Rosemary). I can't wait to try black pepper to cook with; I'm a bit of a pepper lover!

Attention Parents

Do you feed your children vitamins? Do you know what ingredients make up those vitamins?

I recently read an article titled "Top Pharma-Brand of Children's Vitamins Contains Aspartame, GMOs, & Other Hazardous Chemicals". This article is interesting to me because it's often unknown exactly what is in our food, vitamins, drinks, and even water. 

Children's vitamins are known to be healthy to the general public, but the most popular brand, Flintstones Vitamins, are now in the spotlight for their "not so healthy ingredients". Although Flintstones Vitamins claim to be the "Pediatricians' #1 Choice", their ingredients are proving to be shocking. 

Among these ingredients are Aspartame, Cupric Oxide, Coal tar (artificial coloring: FD& C Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #6), Zinc Oxide, Sorbitol, Ferrous Fumarate, Hydrogenated Oil (Soybean), and GMO Corn starch. 

According to Bayer Health Science, the global pharmaceutical producer of Flintstones Vitamins, 82% of children do not eat all of their vegetables. Children in return don't get the nutrients they need. Think about that? In my opinion, this makes the impression Flintstones Vitamins are a supplement that "replaces" the lack of vegetables in children's diet. 

By simply digging into the ingredients making up Flintstones Vitamins, there are varying opinions about this popular choice and how safe it really is for our children. This article is not "new". The article was written over 2 years ago!

Study links exposure to common pesticide with ADHD in boys

Below is the link to an article from Science Daily that I recently read regarding pesticides and ADHD in boys. If we take a step back and look at where our food, beverages, cosmetics, toilet paper, clothes, candy bars, etc. come from, it's jaw dropping how "clueless" we as the general public actually are. It seems "normal" to follow trends. We seem "out of place" if we don't follow what society suggests. Wrong! Living a healthy lifestyle doesn't need to be expensive. It doesn't need to make you dread eating and drinking. You don't need to completely change your everyday lifestyle even. Take one step at a time. Young Living gives us the opportunity to breathe clean air while making the house smell like your favorite pure, organic essential oil! That is beyond the benefits pure, organic essential oils provide to the skin, hair and overall well being of the human body. This is yet another reason I love Young Living Essential Oils.
