MESSAGE FROM CATHY GINS:  In a perfect world we would never get sick.

Each day we would enjoy at least 8 hours of restful sleep; eat regular meals of only the freshest, most delicious and nutritious foods; get exercise as a byproduct of fun activities; work would feel like play; and all of our relationships would be harmonious and filled with love.  When things didn't go our way we would laugh it off, and invent something new.  As a result, our immune system would be so strong; it would easily manage the germs ever present in our environment, and we would never get sick.  Well, as life is not perfect, and being human is an imperfect art, we need to give our immune systems a little help every now and then, particularly at this time commonly referred to as the "cold and flu season".  Last month we focused on the psychological benefits of essential oils, this month we will look at some physical benefits we can enjoy "in style".

OUTER BEAUTY:  Vicks or Vixen?

Vicks vapor rub has been around for generations because it really works.  Its active ingredients are the essential oils of camphor, menthol and eucalyptus which provide relief from nasal congestion, cough and sinus headache (in addition to their antibacterial properties).  Now, a gentler and better smelling version is available.  The camphor and menthol have been replaced with lavender and rosemary oil which can provide similar benefits but are gentle enough for babies.  Essential oils that are good for killing airborne germs and providing relief from cold and flu symptoms don't have to smell bad!  There are many effective oils to choose from... no doubt you will find some that you enjoy.  Here is a list of the top 6...
