I’d like for you all to meet Becky. She’s written up a few things you can do in the water to get fit and stay fit. You don’t necessarily have to have a pool, the ocean works too or even at the gym. Living in San Diego it’s hard to stay indoors for a workout when it’s gorgeous outside, so you will definitely see my in the gym pool doing these workouts! Thank you Becky!!! 🙂   Hi everybody, my name is Becky, and I write for AnAopleperday.com.  I’m delighted to be writing a guest post for The Wellness Doer….

Essential Oil Profile: Argan

Argan oil is not actually an essential oil. It could be considered a carrier oil but for the sake of consistency on the blog posts for the profiles I’m keeping them the same for now. Unlike essential oils, Argan oil can be applied directly to the skin. Argan oil is one of those oils that is really handy to have around. I believe that most, probably all, of us experience some type of skin irritation, sun burn or dry skin at some point AND who doesn’t want to to prevent wrinkles… so it just seems like a no brainer to…

DIY: Anti Wrinkle Serum

Whoa… did she just say ‘do-it-myself anti-wrinkle serum’? I sure did ladies and gentlemen… yes guys, you can use this too. With all this Botox and other BS around to help us look younger… I turn to nature. Nature has everything we need to stay looking and feeling young. I also started using natural oils to make my own beauty products because I had a slight skin condition on my face that just would not go away, ever since I’ve been using this stuff… I don’t have a problem anymore. I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing. If you go…

Tipsy Tuesday: 10 Benefits of Lemons

Since my life revolves around lemons right now I might as well share some of the benefits of lemons with you. At the end I’ve included a link that I stumbled across for 31 ways to use a lemon peel. Happy reading! 1. They contain citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene–that promote immunity and fight infection. 2. They are used as a weight lose aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. 3. Lemons are alkalinizing for the body which helps restore your bodies pH. 4. Lemons increase peristalsis in the bowels, helping to create a…

Cleanse Update: Change of Plans

We are still doing the cleanse but we are now going to wait till Wednesday (3/27) to start it. After talking with a friend who has tried it and him sharing his experiences with it, we are going to do two days of a raw food diet before starting. That way we ease into rather than just a harsh stop of solid foods. It will make our cleansing a little easier. Since I’ve got my fancy new Vitamixer that shouldn’t be too hard. Lot’s of yummy juices and salads… then the fun begins. Updates still to follow… To get us…
