When do you use Tea Tree Oil?

When do you use Tea Tree Oil?

Here are some great uses for tea tree oil.

Acne Treatment

Tea tree oil can be used as a preventative measure, but more impressively as a cure when it comes to those dreaded pimples. It serves as a natural alternative for over the counter products, and possesses unique disinfecting and soothing properties which won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Dab it on – for a quick spot-reduction, pour a few drops onto a cotton bud or pad, and dab the affected area. Don’t rinse for at least a few hours, ideally leave overnight. The oil should easily penetrate into the sebaceous glands and unblock them, wiping out infection-causing bacteria and reducing redness and swelling. Slather it on – Add a few drops to a face mask, preferably clay, and slather it on. Ideally leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing. Pat face dry with a clean towel and apply a moisturizer. Make sure you’re moisturizing with a cream preferably designed for sensitive or acne-prone skin.

Laundry Hack

Keep things fresh and sanitary by adding a few drops to each laundry load. Preferably use an unscented detergent and no fabric softener. Say goodbye to that strong chemical odor of most detergents, and hello to all-natural cleanliness. Note how once you start using this method, your clothes, sheets and towels stay fresher for longer. Extra tip – Stay low-key on the detergent use and put your towels through a baking soda and white vinegar cycle once a month. The vinegar and baking soda work to remove detergent, microbe and odor build-up, improving fiber absorbency. The result is spa-quality fluffy towels that smell as fresh as a spring field! Simply add one cup of white vinegar to the load and run the wash through a hot cycle. When the cycle is done, add half a cup of baking soda and run the hot cycle again. Preferably dry in a tumble dryer to fluff up the fibers.

Congestion Relief

If you’re blocked up from a common cold, tea tree can be a great relief treatment! The antiseptic properties work to help fight the microbes while the anti-inflammatory qualities help reduce swelling of the membranes lining the respiratory passages. Vaporize it – If you have a vaporizer or oil burner, you can let it evaporate throughout the day, especially useful at night. Mix tea tree with lavender for a relaxing effect at night time. Steam it – Boil the kettle and pour yourself a hot mug of plain water. Place a few drops of tea tree essential oil into the mug and take deep, long breaths holding it up to your face. Steam works wonders to clear the sinuses, and is an effective method of reducing mucus build-up. A hot bath with tea tree oil is another way of getting that steam to relax the passages. Eucalyptus essential oil is another great alternative. Wear it – Place a few drops on your clothing, pillow case or a cloth and inhale it throughout the day. Reapply as often as required.

 

All-Natural Carpet Freshener

Most carpet cleaning products contain harmful ingredients that you wouldn’t want a baby crawling over, or a pet laying on. It’s just better for everyone if your fill your living space with natural alternatives rather than harsh chemicals. This cleaning method is not only cheaper and healthier, it actually keeps things fresher for longer without leaving that lingering synthetic fragrance we usually find after a deep cleaning. A homemade pet-safe and child-friendly cleaning agent can easily be concocted with an essential oil of your choice (or blend) and baking soda. Use this mixture to rid your living space of dust mites, creepy-crawly’s, bacteria, mold spores and odor Note – This is a very effective method of deep cleaning carpets, and needn’t be done more than once every 1 – 2 months. If you own pets, this is a great way of keeping the odor and microbes away from your upholstery, however, keep your pets out of the house or confined to one room while the powder sits. Bear in mind the powder does make your vacuum work harder, so don’t go overboard and maintain your machine as the instructions suggest.

  • ½ cup Baking Soda, 35 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
  • Add the desired amount of essential oil into a container of baking soda and shake well. Leave the mixture to sit overnight.
  • When ready to clean, pepper all carpeted areas with your mixture and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before vacuuming.

Tea Tree Oil is also a great aid in treating nail fungus. Apply a couple times a day until fungus is gone.

Do you take a holiday?

DO YOU TAKE A HOLIDAY?         

Holidays and vacations mean different things to different folks.  Your time away from home should be a joyous event for you.  As a family or solo.

 Destress Before you go, take the time for a massage to destress, so everyone can enjoy your company.  Especially you!

Holidays may be a time to reflect, journal and plan for some changes and improvements in your daily life.  Celebrate what has gone well, whether alone or with a partner.  Take time to connect to know what works in your life and what needs change.  Plan it!

Holidays offer great benefits for your health.  Getting extra sleep, soaking up a little extra sun and enjoying the tastes of different food can make your holiday burst with memories.  Lowering high blood pressure and weight loss makes a holiday a great idea and the benefits can last for months.

Employers and employees often decline to take a holiday.  This can cause a loss of productivity and increased glucose levels.  Not to forget your heart, so keep your blood pressure checked.  If you think you are too busy to go on a holiday, what about your wellbeing, and the stress relief.  It has been proven that holidays are the best way to boost productivity, longevity, and makes you happier.

Plan your holiday with a purpose.  It’s a great way to get away from it all.  It doesn’t matter where you end up, as long as the destination was amazing to you. Maybe you want to choose a once in a lifetime holiday or repeat the same one you did the year before.   Change is always a better option it doesn’t let boredom or fatigue set in.  Don’t be a slave to your holiday, it takes time to plan and pack so don’t replace your routine for a routine.   Is your holiday going to be an adventurous vacation doing white water rafting or more subtle by spending time with family and relatives?  If you spend time with other family members as part of your holiday, make sure you take a day or two for just your selves.  This lets you have quality time as a family and connect. No matter the holiday make sure it has a purpose.  Leave the stress behind and rejuvenate.

If you have staycation whether at home or close to it, there are lots of leisure activities within driving distance and you can still sleep in your own bed. Make a plan and don’t get stuck in the same routine just because you are at home.  So leave that messy pantry and cloths on the floor, it will be there at the end of your staycation.  This is a great way to cut back on spending.  You can visit local museums, fairs, go to the pool or lake and have a picnic, a movie with date night, golfing or take a bike riding adventure.   This may be time to develop an exercise routine, or sit back and read a thick book.  Best of all, spend time with your kids, doing kid things like a board game, talking and laughing.

Holidays may be a time to reflect, journal and plan for some changes and improvements in your daily life.  Celebrate what has gone well, whether alone or with a partner.  Take time to connect to know what works in your life and what needs change.  Plan it!

Reflect back on whatever holiday you experienced.  Smile and laugh at the memories and appreciate your time well spent.  Dream and plan for the next one.

Saskatchewan has some beautiful places to visit and things to do.  There is a Saskatchewan discovery guide to help along the way!  Visit this website to find out about more excitement in our province.

20 Signs You Aren’t Drinking Enough Water

20 Signs You Aren’t Drinking Enough Water by Janice Taylor

The human body has a built-in mechanism for telling us when we need to drink water – the feeling of being thirsty. Unfortunately, with an alarming two out of three individuals living with some form of chronic dehydration, many people have simply become numb to the sensation. If you are among the majority and have an ongoing water deficit, there are some other less-obvious signals which indicate that your body is parched.

Read over the following 20 common symptoms of chronic dehydration. If any of them apply to your day-to-day life, it could be that your body is trying to warn you that you’re not drinking nearly enough water.

  1. Chronic Fatigue

Blood and other bodily fluids are comprised mainly of water. When you get dehydrated, your blood becomes thicker and your heart has to expend more energy to keep oxygen and nutrients moving throughout the circulatory system. If you feel tired every day and there doesn’t seem to be a cause, drinking more water could be the solution.

  1. Cholesterol Imbalance

Dehydration signals your body to increase its production of cholesterol in order to thicken cellular walls and preserve the fluid contained in them. As a result of this defensive process, blood-cholesterol levels also increase and can easily become imbalanced.

  1. High or Low Blood Pressure

The decrease in overall blood volume caused by dehydration may manifest as consistently low blood pressure. Over time, the increase in blood-cholesterol can cause arterial build-up and eventually plaques which increase blood pressure to potentially unsafe levels.

  1. Impaired Memory and Concentration

Slackened blood flow caused by chronic dehydration robs your brain of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to perform at peak capacity. As a result, you may find that your memory and concentration become severely impaired.

  1. Light-Headedness, Dizziness or Vertigo

Living in a constant state of dehydration can cause you to experience frequent dizzy spells and light-headedness due to lack of blood flow and oxygen to the brain. In severe cases, vertigo and nausea may result.

  1. Frequent Headaches

Both lack of oxygen and increase in blood pressure are the perfect recipe for frequent headaches. If you notice that you seem to be getting them more often, try drinking more water on a daily basis to ease the strain on your brain.

  1. Mood Swings or Irritability

Just as is characteristic of being hungry, the need for water tends to make people unusually moody and more easily irritated. Also, with all of the other possible negative effects on your brain and other organs, chronic dehydration can throw of your hormone balance and cause persistent depression, anxiety and other mood disorders.

  1. Stomach Pain or Ulcers

Water acts as a buffer between the acidic contents of your stomach and the stomach lining. Being in a state of constant dehydration leaves the inside of your stomach largely unprotected and the constant acid exposure can easily result in ulcers or frequent stomach aches.

  1. Constipation or Poor Digestion

In order to properly process the foods you eat, your intestines need a steady supply of water. Without adequate fluids, digestion can slow down causing constipation, gas and bloating, or even the passing of seemingly undigested food.

  1. Craving Sweet or Salty Foods

Your liver requires water in order to break down fat cells and use the energy stored there to fuel your body and maintain stable blood-glucose levels. When you get dehydrated and your liver can’t perform this important function, you’ll start to crave foods like sweets and salty foods which your body recognizes as easy sources of energy.

  1. Inability to Lose Weight

Because it saps your energy, impairs digestion and frequently causes unhealthy cravings, dehydration can also make it nearly impossible to lose weight. Furthermore, since your body can’t break down fat stores without adequate hydration, even if you force yourself to exercise, you probably won’t be getting the results you want out of your workout.

  1. Urinary Tract Infections

A good supply of water is absolutely crucial for the proper function of your urinary tract. When you become dehydrated, your kidneys and bladder will try to stretch what little water it does have last as long as possible. Unfortunately, without a semi-constant stream of fresh urine to flush them out, bacteria have more time to replicate and overpopulate inside the cozy, warm environment inside of your urethra and bladder.

The most obvious sign that your kidneys and bladder are at risk of becoming the next big vacation hotspot for unicellular organisms can be found in the color of your urine. If your flow is consistently darker than a pale shade of yellow, you need to up your water intake, asap!

  1. Gout Flare-Ups

Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid which crystallizes around the joints – usually in the hands and feet – which cause intense sharp pain. Because your kidneys need water to flush excess uric acid out of your body, dehydration is one of the biggest factors which contribute to gout flare-ups.

  1. Muscle Cramps and Joint Pain

Water is your body’s natural lubricant and cooling system. Without it, your muscles will overheat and seize up and your joints will start to grind. Keep your body in good working order with a constant supply of hydration.

  1. Itchy Dry Skin, Chapped Lips and Dandruff

Because your skin is in constant contact with the surrounding environment, it loses water faster than the rest of your body. As such, probably the most obvious warning signs of chronic dehydration are persistent dry skin, chapped lips and dandruff.

  1. Eczema Outbreaks

Eczema outbreaks can be triggered by a variety of different factors, both environmental and internal. Excessively dry skin – such as that caused by constant dehydration – ranks at the top of the list for many people with the condition.

  1. Premature Aging

Without adequate hydration, skin loses its elasticity. Also, due to hampered blood flow (which we discussed briefly in #1), a long-term lack of water also robs your skin cells of the nutrients they needs to regenerate. Consequently, living in a constant state of dehydration accelerates the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, crows feet, sagging or loose skin, and other signs of aging.

  1. Frequent Respiratory Problems

From the inside of your nose down into the lower reaches of your bronchi, our entire respiratory tract relies on mucus to keep its tissues moist and supple and to prevent foreign particles out of your lungs. A lack of adequate hydration hinders mucus production, thus hindering your respiratory system’s ability to deflect allergens like dust, pollen and pet dander or to defend itself against infection from viral and bacterial invaders.

  1. Chronic Bad Breath

One of the most common symptoms of dehydration manifests in the mouth. Xerostomia, more commonly known as ‘dry mouth’ results from a decrease in saliva production due to dehydration or other factors (such as medications, tobacco use or certain medical conditions). Saliva is a necessary component for regulating the population of microorganisms which live in your mouth. Dehydration and the consequential lack of saliva allows yeast and bacteria to flourish unchecked around your teeth, gums and tongue which can quickly transform a healthy mouth into a miasma of chronic bad breath.

  1. Foul Body Odor

Water facilitates the transport of waste materials out of the body. When you’re constantly dehydrated, said waste materials don’t necessarily make it out, but instead get stored away in cells for future removal. Over time, all of that leftover gunk can change your body chemistry for the worse. (Imagine it’s like leaving a full bag of kitchen waste in the garbage bin for too long.) Furthermore, dry and damaged skin caused by dehydration creates a perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to kick back, relax and reproduce like microscopic rabbits.

Healing with Aromatherapy

AROMATHERAPY & ESSENTIAL OILS 

Essential Oils are effectively the immune system of the plant kingdom. They are commonly steam or water distilled from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. There are various extraction methods, but whether these are obtained as oils, hydrosol, absolutes or CO2 extracts, they all contain the natural, aromatic and volatile plant oils used in Aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy using volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for spiritual, psychological and physical well-being. Oils are typically inhaled or applied to the skin.

All of our products, with the exception of our 10-20% single notes, are natural, undiluted and of the highest quality. These concentrated oils must often be diluted with other natural ingredients such as cold-pressed carrier oils, jojoba, butters, waxes, sea salts and clays for dilution prior to application on the skin.

 

Our newest synergy is made with the Essential Oils of…Marjoram | Patchouli | Roman Chamomile | German Chamomile | Lemongrass | Tangerine | Peppermint | Ginger | Black Pepper | Cardamom | Fennel | Angelica Root

Tum-Ease is a therapeutic synergy formulated to alleviate digestive discomfort. May be helpful for cases of nausea, constipation, bloating and stomach ache.

It is comprised of 13 essential oils that have a special affinity for the digestive system. Due to the extensive amount of essential oils contained in Tum-Ease, it is able to address many stomach related issues.

HOW TO USE TUM-EASE

Tum-Ease can be applied topically to the skin.

Dilution: 5 drops of Tum-Ease Synergy to 5 ml of carrier oil, this will give you a more concentrated formula.

Massage onto abdomen in a clockwise direction, re-apply as needed.

For your convenience, you may also create a rollerball so it is handy wherever and whenever needed! Use the formula above as a guideline for dilution. Our rollerballs are 10 ml, so add 10 drops of Tum-Ease synergy and fill the rollerball with a carrier oil of your choice. We highly recommend Jojoba when making rollerballs as it never goes rancid the way vegetable oils do.

May your tummy be healthy and happy!

SAFETY

Tum-Ease is not advised for children or pregnant women. Those with epilepsy or kidney disease should avoid. Some of the oils in Tum-Ease may cause redness or irritation to the skin. In this case, dilute further or discontinue use.

Benefits of Exfoliation

Benefits of Body Exfoliation

We often don’t think about it, but skin is our body’s largest organ. It wraps our whole body, protecting us from the harsh effects of the sun, wind, pollution and the many environmental contaminants. So it’s important we take good care of it. Over time, the skin on our face and body can take quite a beating from the elements, leaving it looking dull, dry and flaky. There’s an easy way to rejuvenate our skin — exfoliate it!

What’s Exfoliation? Exfoliation is a process that removes dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin, revealing the healthy skin beneath. Our skin can shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead cells per minute naturally; but most of us (particularly those of us in our 30’s or older) need to manually exfoliate our skin to keep it looking radiant. As the weather gets colder and the humidity levels drop, exfoliation becomes even more important. Cells have a greater tendency to dry out during the winter months and accumulate on the skin’s surface leaving us with a dull, ashen complexion. That means the time is now!

Three Reasons to Exfoliate

  1. Super Smooth Skin: Over time, damage from the sun, hormonal changes, and aging slow down our ability to shed dead cells, as well as produce new skin cells. Bad news: this slowed process may lead to undesirable changes in skin’s texture and appearance. Eek. Good news: exfoliating regularly with our organic sugar scrubs to keep our skin feeling soft and smooth all winter long. Hurrah!

 

 

 

2. Breakout Buster: If you experience blackheads, whiteheads, or breakouts, exfoliating your skin can help keep pores clean and unclogged. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, and prevent oils from your skin getting trapped beneath the surface, causing those dreaded blemishes. So worth it, don’t you think?

 

 

 

 

  1. Combat Aging: As we get older, our skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down. These dead and dull skin cells on our skin’s surface, often make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out even more. Nobody wants that, right? Using a gentle facial polish once or twice per week, depending on your skin sensitivity, will help slough any dead skin cells from your face and promote healthy skin turnover. You’ll only be left with a beautifully radiant and youthful looking you!

 

 

 

  Did you know that skin is our body’s largest organ? It wraps our whole body, protecting us from the harsh effects of the sun, wind, pollution and the many environmental contaminants. So it’s important we take good care of it. Our body scrubs are made with organic cane sugar, cocoa butter, and coconut oil to gently exfoliate dry and lifeless skin to reveal a soft, healthy glow. Tougher spots that need serious attention? Try our new Serious Scrub made with volcanic pumice.

10 years with Eminence Organic Skin Care

10 Years with Eminence Organic Skin Care in my Spa

In the beginning of my Spa journey, after taking training in Oakland, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico I needed a skin care line to complement my body treatments which focused on European products from the Dead Sea, Moor in Austria and the sea weed off the shores of Britany.

I travelled to Spa Conferences in Banff, Vegas and Vancouver.

There are many products out there. Many products with interesting ingredients. I was searching for an organic product that delivered the results each person was looking for plus the company needed to provide training as well. I saw Boldijarre of Eminence Organic Skin Care arriving late with his few plastic vegetables and his green tent display in 2006. He had the biggest smile and an energetic vibrancy about him. I would meet him again in Vancouver 2007 at the Esthetics Spa International Conference. I once again visited many booths of skin care. I was convinced that Eminence was the product of choice. Conclusion:

  • Eminence is organic, handpicked grown mostly in Hungary
  • Eminence provides research and new products that deliver the results women and men are looking for
  • Eminence provides training – in house and many opportunities to learn more

Sunrise Wellness Spa was the second spa to bring in Eminence Organic Skin Care into Saskatchewan.

Geraldine is in the forefront of this amazing product that is made from Pure Fruits and Vegetables; cold pressed – so as not to disturb the effectiveness of the product. Made in a controlled environment in small batches to preserve the quality. No water is added to the product so all products contain 98% active ingredients.

Eminence sent two of their trainers to help launch Eminence into Unity in March of 2007. JoLynn Desjarlais (my first regional representative) brought two of her helpers and braved our Saskatchewan winter weather to be here to show Eminence to Unity residents. Geraldine brought in the full line of Eminence. Training was readily available for myself and my staff Lucy Koenig, Stacia Ramsay and Stefanie Rehauser.

Geraldine took all of her staff to Regional Training to have firsthand training from the Best of the Best.

Boldijarre – in Calgary 2007

Vancouver, ESI yearly Spa Show and conference to get the latest training Boldijarre had to offer about new products.

Tamara Hughes Regional trainer from Red Deer

Jude Herrera from Hawaii – Red Deer in 2008 and also in Regina in 2016

Natalie Durkin – Lake Tahoe, California and also Regina in 2015

Brian Goodwin – 2010 in Red Deer

Christel Salamon from Churchbridge is our current regional representative and comes to train us and bring us up to date with all that Eminence has to offer in products and incentives.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have reforested in Senegal, Africa

Through our Forest for the Future initiative we help over 284 families in Kongheul, Senegal grow sustainable Forest Garden Projects. Through our Forest for the Future initiative we help over 284 families in Kongheul, Senegal grow sustainable Forest Garden Projects.  Through these projects, participating farmers overcome issues that are common in their communities, grow trees to feed their families, create sustainable incomes and nurture the earth.

FORESTS FOR THE FUTURE: OVER 7 MILLION TREES PLANTED
Did you know that Éminence plants a tree for every single retail product sold? That’s given us the opportunity to plant over SEVEN million trees, providing the world with 1.6 billion pounds of oxygen each year – that’s enough oxygen for over one million people to breathe every year AND to offset the carbon emissions from over 40,000 cars every year! Now, this is a “tree-mendous” success in itself, but we’re doing a lot more than simply planting trees…

 

Our Forests for the Future Program, in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future, helps train farmers in developing countries around the world on how to build productive and sustainable Forest Gardens. Every tree we plant enables the development of these Forest Gardens in rural communities, empowering local people to restore their environment, grow their own food and build a sustainable income and future for themselves, their families and their communities.

 

 

 

 

We thank all our customers for contributing to this initiative which equals 128.5 acres

Registered as a 501(c) (3) non-profit in the U.S., the Éminence Kids Foundation has served over 31,000 organic meals to seriously ill children to aid in their recovery and long-lasting

health. With the launch of our new website, we can now provide more information as well as accept online donations for the Foundation. We are excited to advance this important cause through this new destination online.

 

The Éminence Kids Foundation, founded by company owners Boldijarre and Attila Koronczay, shares the same beliefs in its mission to donate organic fruit, vegetables and juices to sick children around the world. Not only does the Foundation help children through their recovery, it also educates them about the importance of healthy, organic nutrition as an essential part of their treatment.

 

When we shared the vision of the Éminence Kids Foundation with Wellness Warrior, they saw the act of providing organic nutrition to sick children as a giant step towards accomplishing their mission. Damon from Wellness Warrior further explained his support:

“The simple act of giving when someone is in need is such a beautiful thing–and it is also how the world becomes a better place. I particularly appreciate how the Éminence Kids Foundation is supporting children.… the act of giving children nutritious juice during their recovery goes deeper than the importance of nutrition (though that is a vital part of healing). It becomes an emotional uplift–a way of showing up for people and letting them know that they are cared for, that they are loved and that things can and will get better. We need more of that in the world!”

Boldijarre is working very hard to become the number 1 skin care company in the world.

We at Sunrise Wellness Spa are very proud to bring Unity and district the finest of organic skin care that delivers results that the consumer is looking for. We have in house events with Christel who does the presentation and gives a wealth of knowledge. We have had a Pyjama Party, a Couples night as well as several other events. Watch for our advertising on these upcoming events offering door prizes and purchase deals. We thank Boldijarre for believing in rural communities and allowing his trainers to come to Unity to train us. Continue to share your winning smile where ever you go.

Attend our 10th Anniversary Celebration having Eminence Organic Skin Care in Unity!

To continue in Boldijarre’ s spirit we are donating $1.00 from each product sold to  “UNITE for a Miracle, a local group organized to give back to Telemiracle so another  family will get the help Jeremy and Cherie Wagner received 9 years ago. A way to Share the love.
