Recipe for Your Throat

BLOG throat recipe photoMade it back from New York! I worked,I shopped, I dined and conquered the days before the blizzard. On the return flight someone behind me on the plane kept on coughing (and did not cover her mouth) all two hours and 45 minutes of the flight.

Not sure what I have caught but since I am on TV today at 3:00 for my beauty and lifestyle segment on NBC 12’s The Chat…I need to help my voice.

As the weather goes up and down all over the country and a chill in the air can make us feel like bad and come down with a cold or sore throat… give this recipe a try.

Here is one of my personal recipes for a dry sore throat:

A teaspoon raw local honey

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

*A sprinkle of cayenne pepper

Take twice daily for three days. It is antiviral,anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Enjoy it as you wish!

I do this straight up on a spoon or my fave is to put it in hot water and sip like a cup of tea.

Works like a charm!

Stay tuned to my blog this weekend all about my adventures in beauty,fashion and food from NYC.

How to …Clean Your skin!

Who doesn’t want gorgeous healthier looking skin in the new year? 

This week on my beauty & lifestyle report on TV on NBC 12’s The Chat  at First Coast news station (see my video) I  shared with the viewers a  simple skin care routine. I find women use far too many products on the face and that can cause a traffic jam on the skin…with not so pretty results.

Are you in a HOLI-gaze?

I see shoppers every day either shopping at my beauty business or at other places. People seem to have a glazed look over their eyes gazing into another place or space.

Tis’ the season for stress to be on the top of your Gift and To Do List. From now until New Years Eve you will me on a mission. Rushing,pleasing,traveling,last-minute shopping and cooking.

If you want to wind it down and I know you do. Try some of these tried and true simple recipes I love to do.Today,tomorrow or into new years eve.

Lavender is your friend in any form! Soap,body lotion,cologne, room spray and more. No matter what forms  you use they will work wonders for you.This essential oil fragrance is awesome. You can even sprinkle lavender-scented baby powder on your sheets,pillows or blankets.

Buy some Chamomile TEA…I love the simple pleasures and relaxing joy I get from sipping this tea.To some is an acquired taste but is an amazing relaxing tea. Serve it as hot tea not cold to benefit best.

Try “Chill Pill” by Aura Cacia sprays away the stress that gets you down.Don’t spread stress around.

Epsom salt baths are a CHEAP thrill! Soak the cares of the day away in a scoop of Epsom salts in a bath tub of warm to  water.

Massage your feet with Vaseline that you added a drop of peppermint oil (not the craft kind but an essential oil for the body) Your feet will love you and your skin will love it too.Peppermint essential oil even the slightest drop I recommend for this beauty recipe makes you feel good.It is also an appropriate seasonal delight. Afterwards give your feet the white sock treat !!! Put your feet in clean white cotton socks. I prefer loose (not tight ones) and wake up with hydrated better looking feet.

Book an escape and get a massage!Take care of yourself…take a TIME OUT just for you.

My husband and I love to do this monthly and bi-monthly when time allows.It is good for your health!

I love the happy calm look my husband has after he gets out of the treatment room from his massage at Massage Envy. Priceless!
