I’m always looking for ways to look and feel Younger and Healthier. This is my latest “Lotion or Potion” to make my face look Younger, Healthier and more Vibrant. It is a new Anti-Aging Serum that I created yesterday as a Birthday Present for a close friend. I have been researching which Essential Oils help support Healthy Skin and there are quite a few. I gathered together all of the ones in the photo above. If you do not have all of them… that’s ok. The ones that I recommend the most are Frankincense, Lavender, Copaiba or Stress Away. All of those come in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit at 50% off! After you get the Premium Starter Kit all of your purchases will be 24% off forever! The other Essential Oils in the photo you will want to add to your collection with time. The carrier oils that I used were Jojoba, Almond and Rose Hip Oils. Be sure to buy the Highest Quality Oils that you can find. For Essential Oils I will only use Young Living Essential Oils. They have farms all over the world and manage the production of high quality Organic Essential Oils from Seed to Seal. That means they choose high quality seeds, plant them and oversee all parts of growing, harvesting and making the oils. You can’t get any better than that! I mixed all of the oils in a small bowl and then poured them into little roller balls. You can use a dropper bottle or a rollerball of any size. I use little 2 ml rollerballs for presents. I give 2 of them, one for home and one to carry in your purse… in case of and Anti-Aging emergency.
All of the Oils below will help your skin in so many ways. Use your serum once or twice a day after you wash your face. You can use you favorite night cream at night or sunscreen during the day.
1 Tablespoon Jojoba Oil
1 Tablespoon Rose Hip Oil
1 1/2 Tablespoons Almond Oil
10 Drops of Frankincense
10 Drops Lavender
10 Drops Copaiba or Stress Away

Lemon Essential Oil is amazing. Without a doubt it will make you more Sensuous! I drink a few drops of Lemon oil in water every day. I love to add a tsp. of tart cherry juice and a bit of stevia along with the Lemon essential oil for a sweet treat… and tart cherry juice is great for your joints. When you drink Lemon essential oil be sure to use a glass or stainless steel container. This is because Lemon oil will dissolve Styrofoam and break down plastic. When you use Lemon essential oil in your diet…the Lemon oil helps you detoxify. It helps your body get rid of petro chemicals…and who doesn’t need that. I recommend Young Living Oils if you plan to ingest essential oils because of the purity that they bring to the table. You can always email me if you have questions .

A Sensuous Hat is essential if you Love to spend time outdoors. As a Sensuous Gardener I spend lots of time outside in a variety of activities. And I always try to wear my Sensuous Hat. It protects my skin from the aging effects of the sun and keeps it healthier. We expose our faces to the sun all the time by walking outside from here to there. It adds up. So grab a Hat!
Finding a great Hat is an adventure. Last spring I found my Sensuous Hat in a local Outdoors Shop. It’s perfect for my lifestyle. I did have trouble picking a color because I liked all 3 colors… white, dark lavender and black. I picked the white one with black interior… and I love it. It holds up to being rained on and being washed and it has put up with lots of use including being my swim hat. If you want to check it out it was made by The Sun Day Afternoons Hat company. http://www.sundayafternoons.com
Let’s make it a trend to wear a Sensuous Hat! I will continue my search for my next Sensuous Hat …Please let me know if you can recommend a Sensuous Hat based on your experience…

So I was explaining to one of my friends last evening that the best thing I do every day for myself is to a drink a Sensuous Protein Shake made with fruits and vegetables. That way no matter what else I do the rest of the Day, I know that I did one really wonderful thing for my mind and body.
The first step in creating your own Sensuous Protein Shake is to get a high quality protein powder. Dr Oz and many experts recommend Pea Protein and consider it the best protein to choose for your protein shake. I get my chocolate protein powder from Arbonne. Available from peggydurham.arbonne.com It contains pea protein, as well as rice and cranberry protein, vitamins and minerals, alfalfa, Co 10 and ginseng. I use almond milk and add berries or mango. That works well if you are using a blender but what is really fun is to use a Nutri Bullet. I’ve been using one lately. It allows me to add a carrot, apple, kale or almost any fruit or veggie. The Nutri Bullet pulverizes all fruits and veggies into a liquid. Pulverizing it makes it super healthy and highly available to your body.
You can make this shake really smooth and yummy by adding a half of a square of dark chocolate and a banana. Then top it with grated dark chocolate.
About the photo above … the shake was so good I kept drinking it while I was looking for the camera.
Always make enough for two and give half of it to a friend or Lover. Have your Shake for breakfast or for two snacks. Eating or drinking protein throughout the day keeps your metabolism humming nicely!

It’s 14 inches of snow outside and 21 degrees! And although the snow is beautiful…my living room is green, beautiful and making negative ions to help improve my mood. There is no doubt about the power of plants. The next moment you have an opportunity to buy a plant …do it. Plants are just not that hard to take care of… water them…don’t overwater them…it’s not Rocket Science. It’s also a great time to start new plants for the growing season. So just dust Continue reading
There is nothing better than getting a Massasge… I have been know to say this many times in my Life! So Give and Get a 10-Minute Massage. McMaster University researchers have shown that a ten-minute massage not only helps sore muscles, but also has an impact on inflammation-related, chronic conditions. This is a great reason to give and get a massage. Apparently, massage can trigger body sensors that send inflammation-reducing signals to muscle cells, and thereby reduce inflammation and speed healing. Healing is promoted because massage tells the muscles to build more mitochondria, which are the “power stations” of the cells. So, now there is another great reason for massage . . . not that we needed one.
A shoulder massage is easy to give, and can be done fully clothed. Just stand behind the person you want to massage. Place your hand over the top of the shoulder, and gently squeeze the trapezius muscle that runs from the neck to the top of the arm. Next, with your hands in the same position, reach down the back with your thumbs, and massage the muscles on both sides of the spine. Move in small circles, or just reach as far as you can, and stroke the muscles up and down. You can do this for a few minutes, and then take your thumbs and make small circular motions on both sides of the spine, as far down as you want to go. After that, bring your hands back to the shoulders, and gently squeeze the large muscles at the top of the arm. Then, run your hand gently down the arms to the hands, squeezing the arm gently as you go. This works especially well if you are massaging your lover. As you move down the arm, you can nuzzle your lover’s neck. Ask your lover how it felt, and if he would like more. You can start again at the neck, or see if he has any other requests. You can also explain the information about how massage helps reduce inflammation.
You can tell him that you feel that massage is so important that you are thinking about getting a massage every week, and you are looking for a hot massage guy to give you what you need. Ask him if he knows anyone. Tell him that you would be open to any kind of bartering. Hopefully, he will catch your drift. You can be sure that he will understand what you mean if you touch him suggestively. Tell him that you were told to pay for it, if you need to . . . but you prefer bartering. More than likely you will also get a 10-minute massage.
A Sensuous Woman doesn’t need sugar to be sweet! Sugar is sweet, but what it does to your body is evil. When you eat white sugar, your pancreas goes a little crazy. The job of your pancreas is to send out insulin to help your body utilize sugar. It takes one molecule of insulin to move one molecule of sugar out of the blood stream, and into a cell. “The Roller Coaster Effect” happens because white sugar is an unnatural food. What I mean is that white sugar is so processed that it has lost all of the vitamins, minerals, and fiber that were present in it when it was in its natural state. This unnatural substance (white sugar) causes your body to overreact. As soon as you eat the sugar, your blood sugar level goes sky high. At this point, the pancreas freaks out (because it’s job is to send out insulin to keep the blood sugar at a reasonable level), and it sends out too much insulin to take care of the sugar. What happens next is that too much insulin is produced, and it causes your blood sugar level to drop very quickly. And, when your blood sugar level drops, you feel hungry, and will often reach for something sweet to help you feel better quickly. Wow! It’s easy to see how this vicious cycle is unhealthy for your mind and body.
Sugar causes many health problems. Here are a few:
~ Causes weight gain, and promotes fat production
~ Drives heart disease
~ Leads to metabolic syndrome and diabetes
~ Elevates insulin in the blood which can contribute to the development of cancers
~ Is addictive, due to the high level of dopamine that is produced in the brain when you eat sugar
The bottom line is that you need to avoid white sugar products as much as possible.
My solution is to use Stevia. Stevia is the best sugar substitute. It’s extracted from the sweet leaves of the Stevia plant. It comes in powder and liquid forms. I prefer the liquid extract. Some extracts contain a tiny amount of alcohol, so read the label, or buy the powder form if you want it to be alcohol free. Giving up sugar is one of the best ways to become the Sexy, Sensuous, Healthy Woman you want to be.
