How to Keep Your New Year’s Health Resolutions

How to Keep Your New Year’s Health Resolutions


As we look forward to 2018, we consider new year’s resolutions! The most common resolution every single year is to get healthy/fit. Unfortunately, many of those making this resolution have made it year after year. So, as 2017 comes to a close, we wanted to give you a few ideas of how to keep this resolution in the new year.


How to Keep Your Health Resolution

Getting healthy in the new year can mean a lot more than just losing some weight. Here are some ideas for keeping your health resolutions:


Define your resolution. Make sure your resolution is closely defined. A general “get fit” resolution can be difficult to keep.


Think about all the things that make you healthy. Getting healthy for the new year can mean different things to different people. It may involve going to the gym more often, eating more salads, or buying organic.


Make small, attainable goals. Many people become over ambitious when they write their resolutions. They say things like “I will go to the gym every day this year.” And then, when they have to miss the gym one day, their entire resolution is a failure. Instead, set a goal like “I will do 30 minutes of exercise three times a week.” So, if you miss a day at the gym or you have to exercise at home, you haven’t failed your goal.


Consider your health from the outside in. Your skin is your largest organ and you absorb chemicals, vitamins, minerals, and more through it. So, consider what you put on your skin along with what you put inside your body.

Five Health Benefits of Jasmine

Five Health Benefits of Jasmine

The incredible scent of jasmine is something that we don’t all get to experience in nature. These delicate white flowers bloom in spring, summer, and fall in warm, sunshiny areas. It can be tough to grow these lovely plants here in the Pacific Northwest or other northerly areas - unless you happen to have a greenhouse.

 

Fortunately, jasmine’s delightful scent has been captured in essential oils and bath and body products so that it can be enjoyed all year round.

 

Health Benefits of Jasmine Essential Oil

 

The scent of jasmine does more just delight the senses. It can provide several unexpected health benefits! Here are five ways using our jasmine products can help you, all day long:

 

1. Jasmine can work as a mood lifter, stimulating the release of mood brightening hormones like serotonin. A whiff of jasmine can bring you a burst of energy, reduce stress, and elevate your mood, making you happier and more productive throughout your day!

2. This flower has naturally antiseptic properties. Not only can jasmine essential oils be used as a topical antiseptic, it can even reduce respiratory infections and help to relieve cough symptoms when inhaled. So, just sniffing jasmine can make you feel more healthy!

 

3. It helps to improve dry, brittle, cracked, and even scarred skin. Jasmine naturally provides moisture to your skin, helping it feel smoother and more comfortable. It may also be used to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

Jasmine is also often used to help soothe and ease symptoms of eczema and other uncomfortable skin conditions.


4. Because jasmine can help to relieve stress, it is often used as a sleep aid. This scent can help keep your sleep calm and restful.

 

5. Jasmine is a great option for those who suffer from spasms or cramps. If you have a cough or cold, this scent can help prevent non-productive coughing and can alleviate other spasms caused by a tough workout, menstrual cramps, and more.

 

We bet you didn’t know all of the above about jasmine! If you are hoping to benefit from this fantastic oil, naturally, don’t hesitate to enjoy our organic, handmade jasmine lotion. It’s available both as a body lotion and as our ultra moisturizing hand and heel cream.
