Deck the halls with boughs of bacteria. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Did you know that real Christmas trees bring real bacteria with them?

After suffering from a sore throat, fatigue and horrendous cough virus, earlier this autumn, I still don’t feel like it’s completely gone. A few weeks later and up it comes again… a really sore throat, fever and dreadful ‘snotty’ symptoms, but not such a bad cough…

I think it’s now out of my system but just in case it reappears and you’re feeling the same way, I’ve read this article from Natural Elements and wanted to share it with you…

Finally, winter is upon us…

Tis the season for all manner of ailments and viruses to take hold, just in time for Christmas…

Let Natural Elements share with you some of the ways you can protect yourselves and stack the odds in favour of staying healthy.

1. Viruses just seem to get worse every year

There is a virulent strain in the USA and Australia at the moment which is making its way to the UK, brought largely by visitors, so what do you do?

Modern medicine is unable to cope with these horrid germs, antibiotics are useless against them but there is hope, nature has gifted us all an effective defence in the guise of essential oils, all too often misunderstood, they are shown to destroy these viruses as they can penetrate the molecule, wiping them out.

So this is where The Natural Elements anti-bacterial Shower gels, Hand washes, Face and Body Oils really can act as your guardian angel. By using them daily you’ll have Essential oils around you and on you to actively fight against the little blighters your very own force field … remember prevention is always better than cure.

All you need to do is Shower or Bath with them, and then apply the facial oils and/or body oils to give you the maximum protection.

Don’t forget to use Natural Elements anti-bacterial Luxury Hand Wash every time you go to the bathroom.

Hands spread germs, so kill’em off before they get the chance to multiply

 

 

2. Christmas Trees

Xmastree

Did you know that if you opt for a real one, it’ll be covered in bacteria, so when you bring it into your lovely warm house, the tree dries out and the bugs go air born and yes you and your family breathe them in. That’s why so many people are ill over Christmas.  So what to do, well, take the Natural Elements Luxury Hand Wash and simply mix a few pumps with water in a spray container and spritz the tree (before lights). This will kill off the majority of bacteria and hey presto healthy air, healthy house.. PS: It doesn’t damage the tree at all.

3. Alcohol: We drink more of it at this time of year than any other …so what can you do?

cocktailsWell, super evidence shows you can flush it out and the liver regenerates, so just what can you drink to help it on its way?  Real Coffee has shown huge benefits towards this and of course, a little routine of ACV apple cider vinegar with  turmeric powder in a fruit juice, does the same thing. Taken every morning, it also gives a super boost to the immune system, (you can get the vinegar on our web site. PS: It’s also said to help control weight.

 

 

4. Finally, the one thing Natural Elements staff get asked about most is “how do I protect my skin from the winter weather?”

clothesIt’s simple really, especially when you go out and the skin’s exposed to the winter elements, just up the amount of cream you use, or opt for the Rejuvenating Face Cream on top of your facial oil. This gives a little extra coating to the skin. (just like wearing an extra layer of clothes for added warmth).

Don’t forget – you can buy our Xmas Gift Sets on our website. Just follow the highlighted links in the text above the Natural Elements products to take you to the Natural Elements shop.

How to avoid flu and stay healthy this winter

Screenshot 2018-12-12 at 12.57.42When I read this article by By John Hamilton, Bio-Gerontologist& Dermatologist from Essentially Yours about how to avoid winter flu, it made a lot of sense. Natural remedies along with some straightforward, sensible steps that our grandmothers would have known…

As the UK braces itself for the annual Winter flu outbreak, protect yourself by surrounding and absorbing the power of botanicals.

The strain of the flu virus that exists this year is probably the worse we’ve seen & it seems to be getting worse each year. The power of Essential Oils, used properly, can dispel & destroy this threat.

You can build up resistance with Vital Oils which contain Vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, B6, C, D, E, Magnesium, Copper, Iron, Amino Acids Sterols, Pantothenic Acid, Lecithin & Folic Acid, all of which are virus inhibition & cell protection.

Essential Oils of Therapeutic grade are the key, they are not like the aroma oils you buy in the shops for the smells. Ours bring order to cells & tissue, dispel bacteria & infection whilst stimulating repair. All of this just from our Shower gels & oils, especially the body oils which we recommend applying after the shower!

Influenza Viruses enter the cell membranes and spread throughout the body, therapeutic grade essential oils make the viruses collapse before it can go on to cause havoc, even using our powerful hand wash with essential oils means you are not passing it around on door handles etc

Read the full article to gain the top tips and Essentially Yours suggestions for staying healthy this Winter: https://essentially-yours.co.uk/blog/avoiding-flu-staying-healthy-this-winter/

  • Every morning enjoy a glass of fresh orange juice or grapefruit juice with Turmeric in it.
  • If the sun is out, enjoy it! It may be cold outside but absorbing just 10 minutes of sunlight on the face can boost your immune system and get you some much needed vitamin D.
  • Wash your hands as regularly as you can! We do of course recommend our anti-ageing & anti-viral hand wash for this, it will prevent any germs or viruses spreading and there will be no drying of the skin!
    If you’re more of a bath person in the winter time, add a couple of drops of Essentially Yours Reviving Body Oil. 
  • Pick your alcohol wisely! festive season but always try to opt for good quality alcohol.

Good luck!

Most human ailments stem from infections and inflammation. The healthy chemicals in nature can combat these…

“I believe Essentially Yours products are much much more than anti ageing, 100% harsh chemical-free skincare & toiletries…”  Ceri Rundle

247e343d-0cf7-4ddf-b18f-8e129eccbcd2It has just been announced that the most famous brand of baby products (Johnson & Johnson Ltd.) has led to USA courts awarding £4 billion in damages, to 22 women, who suffered ovarian cancer, as a result of using  Johnson’s baby powder. 

Yet Johnson & Johnson  is still the most popular brand used by mums… That might be because at times in our lives, we’re just too busy and weighted in tradition to take on new information. However after suffering cancer of the pituitary gland, I believe it’s really worth taking the time to consider absolutely everything that you put into your body, hair and skin.

Essentially Yours started out 20 years ago

Essentially Yours were the very first company not to use harsh chemicals like parabens, synthetic colours and harsh chemicals. I was delighted when I found I could use natural products on my skin and now recent medical discoveries are proving that natural ingredients are a much safer way to treat your body and your skin.

On 12 July 2018, New Scientist ran a very worrying article about a new superbug  

Mycoplasmas Genitalium has been around since the eighties, however, the main worry is that antibiotics are almost non-effective on Mycoplasma anymore.

Now, certain essential oils have shown in animal studies to be anti-Mycoplasma and 4 out of the 5 named  are used in products like Essentially Yours Number 6 Body Oil and our Peppermint Shower Gel

The Interstitium

This important organ has been newly discovered in the human body and previously missed. The Interstitium is just beneath the top layer of skin and is a body-wide interconnecting meshwork between the blood vessels, Could this be why Essentially Yours products are having such an impact on human health and wellbeing? Because all the good nutrients in Essentially Yours products get in through the skin and are distributed by the interstitium?

So next time you are in the shower or applying our oils etc… be aware that a lot more could be happening from Essentially Yours products than you think. 

It’s the healthy chemicals in nature that prolong health and life, fight infections and combat inflammation – the main cause of human ailments today.

Could that be why so many people who use Essentially Yours products, report back to say just how healthy they are?
