Uncovered burials have provided us with artifacts and knowledge that beautification rituals were revered in Egypt more than in any other culture. For example, burials and tombs have been discovered with remnants of cosmetics inside. The application of makeup was so important to ancient Egyptians and pharaohs that their beauty rituals served as an honor to their gods and goddesses.
Speaking of Pharaohs… Cleopatra, the last active pharaoh of Egypt, was a legendary beauty, leaving behind timeless rituals with her legacy. Almond oils, apple cider vinegar, dead sea salt scrubs, honey and milk baths were among some of her anti-aging rituals. ~AM
It is said that Cleopatra made the long journey from Egypt to the Dead Sea just to bathe. There is probably a very good reason for that, because the waters of the Dead Sea contain high concentrations of minerals that would have nourished her skin and help fight skin ailments. Provoked by the sass of the ancient queen, she has inspired me to create this beauty body scrub recipe fit for divinity. I have combined the following: •
INGREDIENTS | · Pink or Dead Sea salt
· Dried rose petals
· Dried Jasmine blooms
· Dried Lavender blooms
· A pinch of Jezebel root
· Several drops of essential organic oil blend ( My custom blend has Rose, Argan, Sunflower, Sweet Almond and Bergamot oils)
Combine salt and all the dried herbs into a ceramic or glass bowl. With intention, gently crush the herbs and mix into salt with your fingers. Transfer the mixture into a glass container (I repurposed an “Yankee Candle” candle jar). Pour several drops (about 5-7 drops) of your selected essential oil blend. When ready for use, apply to dry body skin and gently rub in a circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water then rinse in cool water to seal moisture. 👑✨💐

Anyone else do all their laundry on Sunday? 🙋🏻♀️ One of my least favorite chores to be perfectly honest with you all! 🙅🏻♀️
But I absolutely ❤️ having a safe, non-toxic laundry soap in my home. It has no warning label on it, no “if spilled or ingested call poison control,” and it actually does the job in terms of cleaning clothes! ✨
What you wash your clothes with matters in terms of toxin load for our bodies and home. The skin is the largest organ of the body. It absorbs products that are placed on it in as little as 30 secs and chemical compounds get passed directly into our bloodstream. 🤔
Toxic load refers to the accumulation of toxins & chemicals in our bodies that we ingest from a variety of sources, including the environment, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the personal care and household products we use. Toxin load has been linked to cancer, hormone irregularities, mental health disorders, autoimmune diseases, and has even been shown to pass through breast milk. 😵 Good news is that we DO have control over how many toxins we accumulate. For one thing, our bodies have 4 major organs responsible for clearing out toxins: the skin, kidneys, colon & liver. By optimizing the health of these organs, it can help filter out the toxins effectively. 🙌🏻
Anyone ready to make the switch?! 🙋🏽♂️ Comment below 👇🏼
Hello galera 😀🌸
Hoje quem está aqui para contar a experiência dela com a @detoxchefs é a @anafreitas11
Essa moça linda sofria de constituição a vida toda tentando métodos tradicionais mas sempre sem sucessos, mesmo trabalhando em uma clínica médica não obteve resultados em suas buscas pela cura tradicional. Hoje graças a mudança no estilo de vida saudável funcional ela obteve resultados já na segunda semana🙏🏽
Ana fez um dos nosso programas, os 21 dias anti-inflamatório. Além de curar-se do mal que a maltratava, a CONSTIPAÇÃO intestinal ela também conseguiu eliminar 10 pounds(que nem era necessário) mas segundo ela os encomendavam!!!! .
Hoje Ana além de estar liberta esta mais feliz, com foco, energia, e desfrutando uma vida saudável. Através do programa ela aprendeu também praticar a culinária alternativa em sua casa com receitas fáceis que mesmo com um dia super corrido entre trabalho, escola e esposa ela consegue cozinhar todos os dias usando nossas DICAS de como preparar comidas deliciosas sem tomar mtu tempo na cozinha. Nos realmente somos o que comemos e absorvemos.

| thieves in the kitchen
the cabinet underneath my kitchen sink looks completely different since i’ve made the switch to non toxic products, all thanks to young living. these are two of my favorites products to use in the kitchen:
+thieves fruit and veggie soak: one little capful in a bowl or in your clean sink with the drain plugged. add your produce, run water over the top, let soak and then rinse thoroughly. you might be shocked to see all the gunk that’s now in the bottom of the water. it’s the cleanest produce you ever did see!
+ thieves dish soap: i will never be without this again. it makes our dishes sparkly clean and is plant based and non toxic enough to say “if swallowed drink plenty of water” on the back!
i love knowing that my kitchen is full of healthy and clean products!
So proud of this little guy. He played his heart ❤️ out at his tennis tournament yesterday and refused to quit. He was to play at 8 am this morning but due to rain delay he is getting some much needed rest. Looking forward to a great match later
Ugh! Skin tags. 😣 A tiny little “tag” of skin that can commonly occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, under the breast, torso, and groin. This tiny “harmless” growth of the skin usually causes no symptoms unless it is repeatedly irritated by clothing, movement, or dare I say... picking.
Yup, that’s me... a picker. 🤦🏼♀️ I just can’t leave well enough alone and let me tell you, picking at a skin tag hurts like hell. Who knew something so small could cause so much annoyance? Well, guess what? Skin tags are no match for Oregano.
I used Oregano Touch because it’s pre-diluted, quick and easy, but you can make a roller or just dilute some oregano if you don’t have the Touch version. I rolled it on my tag 3x a day for three days and viola! Bye bye skin tag. No pain, and no need for surgical removal, freezing it off, burning it off, or laser removal. Just easy peasy, roll on the Oregano Touch and that’s it! If you have a larger skin tag, this process could take up to 5 days before it’s completely gone.
Ok, so who loves Oregano now? 🙋🏼♀️

The lovely thing about long travel is that you have time to stop and say hello to every cat, dog, squirrel, ferret you see. Or perhaps more importantly, that you even notice them at all. It’s surprising to me just how fast the vacationers are moving, from one place to another, charging forward (and always talking talking 🙉) eager to conquer - something or other. I admittedly walk very quickly and tend to hurry everywhere especially when i am in a city. 🙈But what these few weeks have taught me is that, flowing to your own innate (slow) rhythm means that you can allow space for beautiful (usually better) ‘accidents’ and synchronicities to happen. It is almost like allowing fate to catch up and gently bump into you ❤️~ so much of what I channelled in Ibiza a few weeks ago makes even more sense to me now. #norush#destiny#fate#travels#awareness#present#cat#love#greece#crete#chania#beauty#holisticlife#spirituality#inspiration#channeler#heart#pause#donothing

True story. My four year old who does things I never understand at times poured milk in the diffuser and didn’t tell me, just put the top back on. I was lucky enough to find it before it had hardened 😬 this momma used her balance, forgive, and console that day 😂
There was a happy ending though- I was able to clean it with a qtip and some vinegar and then I ran some vinegar and water through it for several minutes to clean it out. And it’s back in operation
Knowing children I guess I should be glad all I found in there was milk 😬😳

In September 2017, I wanted to take my family’s wellness into my own hands and I wanted us to survive cold and flu season unscathed. I wanted to start kicking out toxins and saving money by making my own products. I wanted to diffuse with high-quality materials and not something made with cheap plastics off Amazon that would break down in the air. So, after a ton of research, I jumped in and grabbed my Young Living premium starter kit. My friend @bprovoast added me to some groups that I would later learn were made up of people who were also members, passionate about health and wellness, and that I was a part of this big team who really, really cared about one another.
I loved my oils, loved making rollers for friends and family, loved sharing diffuser recipes, and loved helping teach others what I knew. I sat back and watched these girls for a few months who were embracing life, sharing their passion, loving on all of us YL members, and helping empower others to change their own lives. I wanted to be friends with them, too. 😉
Little did I know when I grabbed my starter kit what kind of a tribe I would be joining. A tribe full of leaders, learners, and generous servants. People who are on the path of living their best lives and welcoming everyone in who wants to join them. I might be changing my own health and wellness physically, but through watching the examples of these amazing girls, I’m also growing personally as well. It’s been a lot of whole-self change to put it mildly. ;)
I had been living “indoors” for awhile and had really begun to retreat into my family. I’m an introvert at heart, and didn’t really realize how much I get filled by being around encouraging, supportive, and genuine people. I love my family to pieces, but there is something so powerful about friendships and fellowship and getting out there, meeting new people, taking risks and being bold that we need so much.
I am so fortunate to know these women and to have been able to become friends with them through Young Living. I am so stinking excited for what all of our futures look like together and I can’t wait to keep linking arms and running together in life and wellness and work.
Besides being open, present, & purposeful, the flower 🌸 reminds us that mindfulness is also about adjusting & changing with the flow of life. When an essential element of life is missing, the plant 🌱 moves & adjusts to accommodate. Essentially, the plant executes a new strategy. Mindfully take the time to be aware of what’s working, what’s not, & readjust as needed until balance🏄♀️ is achieved.

I recently got given a copy of the @five_minute_journal as a gift and I bloody love it. Every morning, the first thing I do is write three things I am grateful for and three things that would make the day great. The last thing I do before I sleep is write three awesome things that happened in my day and something that could have made my day better.
You don't need a copy of this journal to do this, just use a notepad or your phone!
By doing this, you immediately start your day on a high and you get out of bed with a positive mindset. This can improve your mood throughout the day and help you be more productive! You also end your day on a great note and I can can attest to this exercise resulting in a better sleep!
By improving your mood throughout the day, you will release less stress hormones which can improve your health.
Remember - you cannot feel stress/anger/sadness at the same time as focusing on something you are grateful for. It's easy to let small things bother you that probably shouldn't or get sucked in by someone else's foul mood. But if you send out positive vibes, you'll attract positive things and people into your life.
Give it a go - it literally takes up 5 minutes or less of your day. I'm definitely feeling the benefits of it ✌ You can grab a copy of the #fiveminutejournal at: www.intelligentchange.com/products/the-five-minute-journal
