Aromas Can Help Us Relax.
People respond to the sense of smell on an emotional level more strongly than any other sense. A single aroma can trigger forgotten memories. Gardenias hold a special place in my heart. When I was a little girl I used to play under the tree in my grandma's front yard. There were Gardenia bushes and I just remember the glorious aroma from those sweet white flowers. Pleasant aromas trigger a variety of chemicals that relax, calm, stimulate and create a general feeling of well-being.

A CLEANSE = Jump Start!
Toxins are everywhere – in the foods we eat, the air we breathe and the ground we walk on. These toxins build up in our body and may contribute to weight gain, loss of overall energy and poor skin tone. Over time, these toxins may affect our health and digestion. In the long term, the ability to absorb the foods and nutrients we consume daily can become diminished. Some people who use Herbal Cleanse for the first time experience an encouraging reduction in pounds and/or inches! $31.50
Avocados – So Good For You!
Many people dismiss the health benefits of avocado due to its high calorie count. With 322 calories per avocado it is quite high in calories, but that’s not the entire story. Avocados have 54% of your recommended daily value of fiber! Perhaps the biggest health benefit of avocados is that by adding avocado to certain foods, you can improve your absorption of nutrients. This means that when you combine other fat burning foods with avocado, you can improve your nutrient absorption up to 400%!

Honor Your Well Being
Clear your calendar of unwanted and unnecessary activities and obligations. If you’re unavailable, you will miss the glow of inspiration. God will indeed work with you and send you the guidance—and the people—you need, but if you’re grossly overscheduled, you’re going to miss these life-altering gifts. So practice saying no to excessive demands and don’t feel guilty about injecting a dose of leisure time into your daily routine. ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
