For a Healthy Face

The climate in the mountains of Colorado is really dry! You couple that with a bit of sun and wind burn and it really does a number on your face. Last spring my face was looking rough, I didn't know if it was age sneaking up on me, skin cancer or what. A doctor at a health fair told me it was Rosacea. I've been trying to put lotion on more often, but the last couple of weeks I've been trying something new and I am starting to see some good results. I've been putting a drop of Lavender oil in aloe vera lotion once or twice a day. It seems to be working My face looks a bit healthier. I hope to report back the first week of January with some definite good news.

qoute for today

In these times you have to be an optimist to open your eyes when you awake in the morning.

lavender oil

Lavender oil is some great stuff. I've found it to be great for healing wounds and fighting infections. Even better then some of the over the counter antibiotic ointments. Its also great to diffuse in your bedroom for a great nights sleep!

the secret of life

I think I've discovered the secret of life - you just hang around until you get used to it.
Charles M. Schulz

peppermint oil

I've mentioned Young Living Essential oils in previous post. I have been using their products for about three years now.
When I first started using these products I figured if nothing else I would smell good! ha,ha!!! I have become totally sold on the health benefits of the products I've used so far.
Peppermint oil is wonderful! Put a drop in your water for a refreshing drink and it is good for the health of your digestive system. Feeling tired? Put a drop in the palm of your hand, then cup your hand over your nose and breath deep, also rub a drop on the back of your neck and the temples of your head. Its an immediate uplift and refresher. It really works check it out at

today's qoute

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Walking and water for good health

I know I wrote, on my other blog, a walking man blog a few months ago. But enough can't be said about getting out in the fresh air.
At first don't worry about how far or how fast. I know a man near 90 that walks up and down his driveway everyday. When shopping at the mall, don't go for the "rock star" parking. Instead park as far away as possible. It will only take a couple more minutes. As you walk more and more you will find water helps. Many a time, while out hiking, I feel I can't go any further. I sit for a few minutes and drink some water and all of a sudden I'm a mile further down the trail. Drinking water helps curb you appetite and just like walking after a few weeks your body misses it if you don't keep it up. Just get out and do it. Make the change in your life. Its good for your body and mind.
