Sensuous Essential Oil ~ Lemon

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 .

Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

img_20160205_233906004.jpgA good nights sleep is essential to being a Sensuous Woman… And for many of us Sleeping can be a challenge at times. For others it can become a Lifelong pursuit to have a great night’s sleep…

In my Book, “Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” you will find a page called “Sleep and the Sensuous Woman”  which will give you lots of suggestions of how to get better sleep.  I also shared that page approximately one year ago in this Blog… You can scroll down and find it if you want!

As we all know, sleep can be disrupted for so many reasons it would be impossible to list all of them here. But whatever the reason that you have trouble sleeping, there is one thing that you can absolutely do about it… Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

Sensuous Bedtime Routines

A Sensuous Bedtime Routine can include just about anything that you want to do every night before you go to bed. Being consistent with a Bedtime Routine often helps us sleep more deeply.

A Sensuous Bath

Sensuous Essential Oils can be a great addition to any Sensuous Bedtime Routine. As often as possible I like to take a Bath with Essential Oils.  I use only Young Living Essential Oils due to .their “Seed to Seal” Promise.*

So I gather my favorite Essential Oils and choose one or two. I often grab a cup of Epsom Salts and a sprinkle of Sea Salt.  Then I use 3 -8 drops of my favorite oil or sometimes I pick 2 oils. I drop the oils onto the Epsom Salts and mix them up. Sometimes I just put the mixture into an old Jelly jar and shake. Then, in they go, into my hot bath. The scent from the oils in the hot water is very relaxing. Be sure to inhale deeply. Slow deep breathing also gets you ready for bed.

Lavender * is classic and well known for it’s sleep inducing properties. It’s also wonderful mixed with Cedarwood for a lovely night’s sleep. Be sure to use Young Living Lavender grown on their pristine Farms.

Joy** is a very Sensuous Young Living Blend that tends to bring a feeling of relaxation and romance. It includes Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Bergamot and more. And it smells wonderful.

Stress Away ** is yet another Young Living Blend that has always been one of my favorites. It is relaxing any time of day and especially calming in a hot bath. It smells yummy and contains Vanilla, Lime, Cedarwood, Lavender and more.

After my Sensuous Bath I rinse off my face and pat it dry. I put a drop or two of Frankincense* in the palm of my hand and then rub the palms of my hands together and Press my hands onto my face very gently. After that, I cup my hands over my nose and inhale deeply.

I also have a small spray bottle of Lavender or Stress Away mixed with water that I use to  spray on my pillow. I make my spray with a few drops of oil and filtered or spring water.

Then I put some oil on my feet. In the winter I use Thieves to boost my immunity, or Stress Away or Lavender. Sometimes I put socks on to keep my tootsies warm.

And if I’m having a really restless night I put my diffuser on with Lavender and Orange or Cedarwood.

With this sort of routine you are pretty much guaranteed a Sensuous Night’s Sleep !  It’s fun to Create your own unique Sensuous Bedtime Routine.

Sweet Dreams Sensuous Women!

Until Next time,

Peggy Durham

Buy a Green Plant to help you be more Sensuous this Winter!

wpid-imag2657.jpgIt’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.

Get Off of the Sugar “Roller Coaster”

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.

Experience Real Perfume Every Day!

Perfume can be nice, but natural fragrances are more gentle to our senses. Flowers are a natural source of real perfume.  In my opinion, the best way to experience real perfume every day is to surround yourself with real flowers. Grow or buy flowers, so that you have some real perfume in your life every day. In your garden, try to include flowers that are known for their fragrance. Some of the sweetest-smelling flowers include Lilac, Roses, Hyacinth, Lilies, Lavender, Dianthus, Sweet Peas, and Phlox.  Once they start blooming, be sure to pick a few for your home and office every day. Picking flowers actually stimulates the plant to put out more flowers.     
Growing flowers in containers is another way to add natural perfume to your life, and it’s not that complicated. Most summer annuals and tropical plants will grow on a sunny window sill, or on your porch. Citrus trees do well in containers, and lemon trees are especially beautiful. Few flowers smell as sweet as lemon blossoms. You can also grow sweet-smelling herbs, like lemon balm or basil. Basil roots in water, and can be grown in water. All you have to do is add some water every other day and a little fertilizer weekly. Both basil and lemon balm will also grow nicely in containers in a south-facing, sunny window in your home. Exceptionally fragrant indoor plants include Citrus, Jasmine, and Gardenia.      
You may want to stop by your local florist, and pick up a few flowers. Just visiting a Flower Shop can give you a real perfume experience. Tell the floral designer that you are looking for the most fragrant flowers. Be sure to smell them before you buy, because although they may be fragrant, they may not be pleasing to you.      Flowers tap into the emotional center of the brain. What might smell nice to one person, may remind another of something unpleasant. My favorite sweet-smelling, cut flowers are Freesia, Stock, and some varieties of Roses. Buying flowers for yourself is a Sensuous Activity! You don’t need to wait for a special occasion, or someone else to buy them for you. . . . Put it on your list of things to do to become a more Sensuous Woman. Adding flowers into your life on a daily basis will soothe your senses, and help you get more in touch with your Sensuous Self. 

Don’t forget to put a new Fridge Checklist on your Fridge (see previous Post) it will help you stay motivated every day.
Until later,
