Back To School is a time filled with germs, sickness, dirt, and just plain nastiness.  My kids will  be going back to school in less than a week and will be bringing home millions of little invasive visitors when they come home (oh, how I despise germs!).  Sickness will inevitably be ravaging my home soon, and what better way to cure what ails you than naturally?  Let GuruNanda be your best friend this back to school season and stay in good health despite the germ minefield you’ll have to dance through.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy the benefits of essential oils is a great essential oil diffuser.  The GuruNanda Honeycomb Essential Oil Diffuser is not only functional, but super cool looking!  The Honeycomb Essential Oil Diffuser is super easy to use, so even someone who’s not great with technological things can use it without frustration.  This high quality device utilizes ultrasonic waves to diffuse essential oils.  When used with GuruNanda essential oils, the nano-particles of the essential oil together with water form a calming mist that disperses into the air without heating or compromising the benefits of the oil.  The soothing color-changing LED lights help facilitate the perfect environment to enjoy the essential oil mist in.  Once your water starts to run too low, the unit will shut off, typically about 4 hours after being plugged in.

From ancient Egypt all the way up until now, essential oils have been used to treat a variety of ailments like anxiety, pain, and even acne!  No matter what your issue is, GuruNanda has an essential oil for you.  All GuruNanda essential oils are certified by Laboratoire PhytoChemia to be 100% Pure and Natural FROM FARM TO YOU.

GuruNanda Peppermint Essential Oil is great for invigorating and refreshing.  If you’re suffering from nasal congestion, adding few drops of Peppermint Oil to an essential oil diffuser can immediately clear nasal passages for better breathing.  The fresh scent that it emits has a cooling quality, followed by warmth and comfort that you crave when you’re a little under the weather.

GuruNanda Eucalyptus Essential Oil is great for clarifying, invigorating, and revitalizing.  Eucalyptus essential oil is another great remedy for sinus or nasal congestion. When diffusing Eucalyptus Oils with an oil diffuser, its fresh and penetrating scent can help you to breath easier and  give you the relaxing sensation. GuruNanda Eucalyptus Oil helps to relief sore muscles and speed up the recovery process when you are sick as well.

GuruNanda Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend is another great way to stay decongested during the sickness filled back to school season.  The Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend is a natural remedy that can help you wake up with clear nasal passages.  Breathe Easy is a blended oil of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Basil, Tea Tree, and Rosemary Essential Oils.  Eucalyptus is the key ingredient in cough and throat medicines that can assists with clear breathing.  The cooling and warming effect of peppermint promotes overall respiratory health.  Basil, Tea Tree, and Rosemary all have antiseptic properties that can help to cleanse your body which makes this my absolute favorite back to school essential oil.

GuruNanda Lavender Essential Oil is great for calming and relaxing, soothing, and even helps with your sleep!  Lavender Oil is the most versatile of all essential oils, and is most commonly known for its relaxing and calming effects.  Lavender essential oil can also help to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.  The lavender oil fragrance is calming, relaxing, and balancing.  Lavender oil is easily recognizable by its perfectly balanced, floral-herbaceous aroma.  When diffusing Lavender Essential Oil with an oil diffuser, you can enjoy the the sensation of calming, relaxing, refreshing, toning, and cleansing.

Super Cute Mommy And Me Summer Manicures With Sally Hansen

sallyhansenlogo

If you’ve followed my blog for even a short amount of time, it’s probably pretty obvious that I am totally nail polish obsessed.  This summer is the perfect time to get your nails looking fabulous (like mine) at unbeatable prices with incredible quality to boot.  Sally Hansen is available at almost everywhere you already shop, so pick up your favorite colors and have fun expressing yourself this summer.

SallyHansenMain.jpg

My 5 year old daughter is a carbon copy of me and has quickly picked up the love for everything nail polish and loves it even more when we have matching manicures.  If you have ever even been around a 5 year old girl, you’ll know that they aren’t great at sitting still.  My daughter loves sitting for me to do her nails, but getting her to sit still long enough to let the nail polish dry is absolutely impossible.  Within 10 minutes her manicure gets ruined and it was just a big fat waste of time.  I picked some matching colors from both the Miracle Gel and Insta-Dri lines so in about a minute my little girl is ready to go and our “matchy” nails stay looking fabulous.

SallyHansen2.jpg

What could be cuter than a matching mommy and me manicure this summer?  Thanks to Sally Hansen and the wide variety of colors, you and your little girl can customize your looks to your own personal styles.  I absolutely love the look we came up with and 7 days later our nails are still looking just as fabulous as day one.

Head to your local retailers to pick up some Sally Hansen polish that best suits you and get summer ready today!  (If you’re looking to purchase the colors we used, the Miracle Gel colors are Sugar Fix, Street Flair, and Shock Wave.  The Insta-Dri colors are Set Sail, Lively Lilac, and Pink Blink.)
