I LOVE Christmas! I'm not in the "obsessed with everything Christmas" category, but I do enjoy many of the traditions: the sappy Hallmark movies, the uncontained excitement of children, my Dicken's village. After such a difficult year full of natural disasters, deaths of beloved actors and musicians, I think we're due for some holiday cheer. What's your favorite way to celebrate the holidays? Don't forget to practice self-care during this busy season, and boost your immune system every time you use products made with On Guard Protective Blend. For those of you traveling over the holidays, please be safe.
And if you're looking for a super-easy DIY holiday project, check out the DIY Christmas Tree diffuser idea below!
Be sure and enter my raffle below by sharing your favorite Christmas memory! And like my Hope Essential, LLC Facebook business page for information on how essential oils can help with other health concerns and also get updates on classes, events and giveaways!
1 cup water; 5 tsp. cocoa powder (I use cacao);
1/4 tsp. liquid stevia or 1 1/2 tsp. powdered stevia;
1-2 tbl. sugar or agave, optional (I use local honey);
1 tsp. vanilla extract or 1/4 tsp. almond extract;
3 cups almond milk
*recommended essential oils: cinnamon bark, lavender, wild orange or peppermint
Heat water, cocoa powder, and sweetener on stove until ingredients are smooth. Add vanilla and milk and bring to a simmer. Pour into favorite mug.
Introduce flavor by swirling a toothpick dipped in your favorite essential oil. (For more recipes, click here!)
While this recipe is sweeter than most, the main benefit is that it's not pre-packaged with artificial ingredients. This should be considered a special treat for many of us!
If you've overindulged over the holidays, you might want to consider using Zendocrine Detoxification Blend to reboot! It's a mild option that supports your gut and liver.The good news is that essential oils are natural, so your body knows what to do with them! You can learn more about these oils here.

Facebook Live Event!
Holistic Lifestyle Tips--Getting Real About the Woo-Woo!
Every Wednesday 9:00pm-9:10pm
THERE IS HOPE FOR A QUALITY OF LIFE AS YOU AGE, but the odds will be more in your favor, in my humble opinion, if you open your mind to a different, whole body approach instead of treating symptoms. I have embraced a holistic approach to wellness for over 25 years and would love to share what I've learned on my journey. I am 61, genetically pre-disposed to diabetes, and yet I am not on ANY daily prescriptions or OTC. Are you ready for positve change?!
