Essential Oils for the Back To School Season from GuruNanda

GurunandaLogo.jpg

Gurunanda.jpg

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.

Gurunanda2.jpg

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.

Gurunanda3.jpg

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.

GuruNanda Calming Sleep Essential Oil Blend is perfect for little ones (or parents) who have a hard time sleeping.  This blend of Lavender, Marjoram, and Chamomile will help you sleep for hours.  This oil blend will help you clear your mind enough to drift off into dreamland easier so you can rest and replenish your body fully.

GuruNanda Slim Essential Oil Blend is perfect for parents like myself who will be sending off their youngest child to school and finally have time to focus on themselves.  The Slim Oil Blend helps to benefit the body and maintaining a healthy diet by boost your metabolism, energize your body, and help you manage cravings better.  The blend of Black Pepper, Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Lemon, Peppermint, and Ginger creates a wonderful scent that you just won’t be able to get enough of.

No matter what issue you are trying to target, GuruNanda has a wide variety of Essential Oils so you can find the one that’s just right for you.

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.)

This summer is the perfect time to keep your skin looking great at great prices.  Hard Candy has tons of great options available, but I’m totally in love with their glowing skincare items.  Whether you’re looking to illuminate or add a little bronze, Hard Candy has perfect options that won’t break the bank.

HardCandy2.jpg

This Hard Candy Sheer Glow All The Way is fabulous!  This pearly, luminizing highlighter brings radiance to all skin tones.  Apply the cream highlighter to your face and body for a luminous, pearlescent glow.  Every shade in the range is infused with real 24 karat gold, so your look will really sparkle.  The light, airy formula applies evenly to face and body without streaking, and dries onto skin so that it will not rub off on to clothes.  To use, simply apply a desired amount to the high points of your face: cheekbones, brow bone, and top of the nose.  On your body, apply as a highlighter to collarbone and shoulders; or apply as a bronzer to your entire body for a sun kissed glow no matter what season it is.  Glow All the Way is available in sheer, radiant, and tan shades. The Tropical Tan shade is formulated with a sunless self-tanner to gradually give you an all-over, lasting, bronzed glow.  I live in Arizona so during the summer my skin tone gets a few shades darker after spending so much time out at the pool.  I love the variety of shades offered in the Glow All The Way line…I can keep wearing my fave look all year long!

Glow All The Way is another fabulous line with great results you’ll love at a fraction of the department store prices.  Wear them the same way as the Sheer Glow All The Way for great looking skin all day long.  I really love the Doll Face (pink bottle), it highlights your skin tone with a hint of rosy color to create a beautiful, youthful skin tone.  As a tired, 30something year old mother of 3, I need all the help I can get and Hard Candy is my go-to fix for my tired skin.
