I mentioned in a past post summer is here! Most of us want to spend more time outdoors enjoying a little summer fun! I know I do! One thing I have used for years to help keep from getting bit by mosquitos and other bugs is peppermint essential oil. I put a drop on each wrist. This seems to do the trick. Bugs hate peppermint oil!
One other thing, I have also used this oil to help keep away bugs naturally in my home. I put a few drops of the peppermint oil in a spay bottle with a little water (shake bottle well) and spray where I see ants etc. are coming inside. (Do not spray oil on fabric)
I have another use for the peppermint oil. I put one drop behind each ear to help keep me a little cooler in the heat. Two uses here…helps keeps the bugs away and helps keep you cooler!
I have used the Young Living Peppermint oil exclusively. I love Young Living products and have used them for many years! I hope you will try the peppermint oil. It smells great and I think you will really like it!
I hope you have a great time in your outdoor activities whether you are camping or just going for walks!
Who am I? I am an artist that takes my health serious! If I am not healthy mentally and physically, I personally can not do the painting/art I love to do! One thing that helps me is to exercise, along with healthy eating. Yoga is a great way to keep me excited about creating and being able to do my work! I believe yoga is great for mental and physical relaxation. It can help provide the strength do be able to keep up with ordinary daily routines that can sometimes be hectic. I can tell a big difference if I slack off my healthy routine! I hope you will do your best to practice a healthy lifestyle! Try out this DVD and see if it doesn’t help you lead a healthier life!
I will be adding to this blog, tips on healthy eating in the future. I hope you will follow my blog to get healthy mind and body health tips often!
I can’t tell you how much I love these yoga pants. The flare leg makes it not only a great workout pant, but looks great for going out for everyday errands etc. Pair them with a great top or blazer and you have a great dressy look also!
This would also make a great gift for someone you know!
