Tip of the Week (3/11/13): Clean Fruits and Veggies with Grapefruit Seed Extract

I’ve seen some recipes for homemade produce wash that includes vinegar and baking soda. I’m sure those work great too. But for an easy peasy wash, just add Grapefruit seed extract to water, soak and rinse!

For sink/bowl wash: Add twenty or more drops to a sink/bowl full of cold water, and briefly soak vegetables or fruits then rinse!
For spray washing: Add ten or more drops to a thirty two ounce pump sprayer filled with water.

There’s A LOT of other things you can use GSE for too! More to come!

We use Nutribiotic brand. Amazon, health food stores, etc.



Tip of the Week (3/5/13): Drink Warm Lemon Water First Thing in the Morning

Why warm?
Warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis (the waves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving)

Why lemon?
– Helps purify and stimulate the liver, liquefies bile while inhibiting excess bile flow, causes the liver to produces more enzymes
– Aids digestion (its atomic composition is similar to saliva and the hydrochloric acid of digestive juices.)
– High in potassium. (Potassium is an important mineral that works with sodium for smooth electrical transmission in the brain and nervous system. Plus depression, anxiety, fogginess, and forgetfulness can often be traced to low potassium blood levels…. so it’s nice to start the morning less foggy headed)
– Alkalizing effect in the body as it is buffered. The higher or more alkaline your pH, the more resistant you are to minor and major disease.

This sip’s for you!

Tip of the Week (2/25/13): Lime Deodorant!


I’m not talking about lime scented or lime infused deodorant. I’m talking about slicing a lime in half and slapping it on your pits. Let it dry and done.

Try it.

It works; it’s crazy!

It doesn’t stop sweat but it stops sweat from smelling. So it might not be the best deodorant for professionals, it works like a charm here at home!
