Detoxing with Essential Oils

Detoxing with Essential Oils

by

I am in here in Toronto at the end of February waist-deep in snow on the coldest day on record. Grump. It is hard for me to imagine the generous warmth of spring but from what I can see on Instagram, flowers are shooting up all over the world and people are shedding their layers. When that happens, our bodies leap to life. It is essential to open detoxification pathways to help our bodies be as productive as possible in this time of transition. Of course, I turn to essential oils to assist me.

Here are some ways to use essential oils to be your most juicy moving into spring. Viva!

Raw Chocolate Balls: Little Mouthfull of Love

Raw Chocolate Balls: Little Mouthfull of Love

by

I present to you Raw Chocolate Balls.

I love this recipe because it is delicious, healthy and easy. If you making desert for your lover or looking for a midday pick-me-up, these salty balls will definitely do the trick. I only use powdered raw cacao (chocolate) because it maintains its nutritional profile that would be otherwise lost when cacao is exposed to heat.

Cacao is a super-food powerhouse, full of magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Pumpkin seeds are high in testosterone-producing compounds and protein. Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain saturated fats. They break down more quickly than long-chain saturated fats, and give you long-lasting slow-burning energy. Rice bran powder is excellent brain food and gives this recipe a creamy consistency.

Juicy in the Afternoon: Aromatic, Superfood, Enlightened Passionfruit Juice

by

For many, there is nothing more depressing than a Monday morning in January in the Northern hemisphere? From this vantage point, there are at least six, probably closer to eight more weeks of winter’s wrath. To be a Canadian, one needs to know how to survive with lightness in our hearts.

Eating tropical or raw food in the winter is not something I generally recommend for myself or for my clients. Cold causes constriction in the body and the last thing we need in the winter is more tightness… However, every now and then, we need to break the rules. We need to remember that even in the bleakness of winter, somewhere, life is growing and thriving. We can feast on that inspiration.

3 Hidden Toxic Chemicals in Everyday Products

by

no-detergentsYa know… one can get a little down when you start to consider all the different nasty, cancer-causing, immune-disrupting, skin-irritating chemicals that are legal and available in our regular household products. One might start to think that the powers that be have a vested interest in keeping us sick, fat and chemically saturated. Well that’s a little doomsday, isn’t it?

The good news is we have the power to choose what we want for our bodies and lives. Choice comes when we are armed with information.

How to feng shui your love space.

by

Yin Yang Feng ShuiSensual lover, I believe in the power of energy in objects. We have the ability to create our environment, along with our thoughts, to manifest our most intimate desires. As a result, I often turn to Feng shui if I am feeling a little stuck in the mud. Feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of arranging objects to create a good flow of energy or chi. Nowhere is more important to have good chi than in the bedroom. A lot goes on in the bedroom and you can do so much to improve it by using a few key ideas. If you are looking to attract a love friend or improve the relationship you currently have, please consider this:

by

Sweet sensual lovers, I was in Montreal over the weekend with a couple of friends. It was an opportunity to pamper ourselves and commit to some essential fairy-magic beautifying practices in our palatial rock star apartment. It was legendary fun!

These days, my skin feeling sad. It’s not accustomed to the dry dullness that comes from electric heat and indoor activities (I miss the consistent warm winds of Brazil).

Aromatherapy to Warm a Frigid Soul

by

I hear you, friends. I know that many of you in the Northern Hemisphere are in a deep freeze that is only comparable to the deepest ring in hell in Dante’s Inferno- A frozen pond. I know that sexy summer dresses and slip on shoes are either months or a long plane ride away. I am living in Rio but that penetrating cold is not far from my Canadian mind. I feel you, and I shudder with compassion at your facebook pictures.

What can Aromatherapy do to warm you on those cold, hard, dark nights? So much and luckily, most of the warming oils have an added benefit of being aphrodisiacs and mood enhancers. A fire place, a bowl of soup and the one you love is, in my opinion, one of the greatest things about hunkering down for those long winter months.
