Having worked with you on nutrition and health since 2012 I can honestly say the concern of what to eat, nutrition, calories, etc. are a thing of the past.I eat from a neutral space. This means no overbearing cravings and feeling satisfied as a constant state and yet the freedom to enjoy pizza if I choose.My body is still going through healing reactions but my energy is great compared to what it used to be and I am starting to look really healthy!An added bonus is the superfoods have created a stress free zone for quick, easy, super nutrition while I am in grad school.

But what if you are inside and the air isn’t so fresh? Ideally, you’ll open your windows as often as you can, especially when you sleep at night. Exercising outside is also really helpful.
And sometimes you really need to cover up an existing odor or you want to upgrade your mood or set an emotional tone with the use of scent. Rather than adding more toxins to your environment and your lungs, here are two natural options we prefer for adding scent to a room (in addition to opening a window) …
Essential Oil Sprays
Essential oils are plant extracts with powerful physical, mental and emotional effects. Making your own essential oil spray is one of many ways to enjoy the scents of plants and the benefits of the oils.

Here are a few we like:
- Lavender – for a calming effect, especially nice for bedrooms
- Thieves or Tea Tree – for a cleansing, purifying effect, especially good for bathrooms and kitchens
- Cedar or Rosemary – for a clarifying, welcoming effect, especially nice for offices and front entrances
