Inhale the new and …

Say “Goodbye” to last year too.

Moving forward …

Open your mind and embrace new ideas and mindful rituals. Create a space in your home (your own little sanctuary) and keep a little something on your work desk that will assist with mindful wellness.

You can even take a little something like a crystal with you in your travels ✈️ too!

Healing Harmonies…I love the music 🎶 from David Young. My fave is “Bliss” and George Skaroulis CD 💿 named Sanctuary. Take time to listen to calming music and just breathe. Use music to relax or to mediate or do yoga with.

Crystals are mined from the earth and they can offer some intentional light or meaning in our life too.

Each stone does a different thing and has meaning and a mood. Here are some you need to know about.

Pink Rose quartz is a LOVE 💕 stone.

Agate is a stone for good health.

Green Jade is for luck and prosperity.

Clear crystals are for clarity of the mind.

Amethyst’s are the Happiness stone.

Crystals can be very empowering.

Add some incense, burning sage and Palo Santo which is also known as a “Holy Stick” to your life.

Palo Santo has a sweet scent of pine, lemon and mint. You may also use sage as well. It is also used for a deep meditative state. You light it and let it burn. You may use it and move with it from room to room. When done. Blow it out. Wet the ember tip a bit and place in a 🔥 fire proof dish. Be cautious when using sage or Palo Santo and incense.

FYI

Palo Santo is harvested from natural fallen trees.

Smudging is the ritual of cleansing a physical space, an object or a person.

Great for the spiritual, detoxifying properties, cleansing and clearing the air of a physical space of negative energy.

 Will not upset pets or people with allergies. Also they say it is great to kill bacteria after a illness or the flu.

Wellness is not just about what you eat. It is also about what you feed your mind. Check out some new things online and there are plenty of books 📚 you can explore on these modalities too.

Start fresh in this new year and take time to smell the incense and just be.

Vegan LOVE

Gluten Free COOKIES!

I so LOVE CANDY…That is why I named my blog Beauty Candy. I also love a good cookie. A friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I am going to make them as soon as I get the three easy ingredients. I have been on the road for beauty so much I am starving my husband according to him as I have not grocery shopped much lately. He eats sardines and clam sauce pasta as meals when I travel. Kinda crazy!

So, I am going to make him so home-cooked meals and cookies!

1 egg

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of peanut butter (substitute almond butter for peanut if you want)

Pre-heat oven 375 F.

Grease a cookie sheet.

Place in a bowl all of the above. Drop with a cookie scoop little rounds. Flatten with a fork. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until a slight golden look and center settles in.

Cool cookies on wire rack.

She said before she knew it they were all gone and so was a gallon of milk. Yum!food eggs
