Nutmeg oil is used extensively as a spice and has been valued for centuries as a remedy for kidney-related and digestive problems and has adrenal cortex-like activity, which helps support adrenal glands for increased energy.  Although it has had many uses herbally, including use in ointment for the treatment of piles, and use in soap-making and candle-making, its aromatherapy uses are generally related to muscular aches and pains, particularly rheumatic neuralgia. It is current in the British Herbal Pharmacoepia for rheumatism, nausea, diarrhea, and flatulence. The oil is also reputed to have beneficial results against bacterial infection.

Did you know that certain chemicals on your foods react to the chlorine in your tap water? Many people think that having a shower filter is all they need from protecting them self from the dangers of chlorine. Most people absorb more chlorine from daily washing their hands and cooking in the kitchen than the time they spend in the shower.

Learn how this amazing water filter can protect you from chlorine and other contaminants and filter your whole house plus your garden!  We will be doing product demonstrations with questions and answers.  Please call the store to register.

Love their stuff!

Hi Everyone! Sorry for the delay in getting out the newsletter. It has been busy! We have some exciting news. Cody and I will be interviewed by Shaw Cable tomorrow for a news segment. They would love to interview some customers. If you are available between 10 am and 11 on January 17, please drop in. We will be featuring Basic Roots desserts for the segment and will have some samples too.

I am getting more and more excited about my essential oils and just love them. One of the reasons I like them so much is that it feels good to prescribe food for healing. Oils are highly concentrated foods that absorb quickly into our skin. Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body and can absorb quicker than ingesting food? If you have not had an Energy Meridian Scan yet, please stop in for one. The scans also give you 4 oil recommendations based on your scan. Sheila Sherman and I are also offering an oil blending class based on your specific ailment. See below.

Also, our sweet Sabrina is currently enrolled in a practicum until April and we will be changing up some of our hours, so please make note of the changed hours to the left.

Please join Sheila Sherman and Tonya Dahl for an informative course on oil blending and how to blend specific oils for healing. Make up a blend and take home a sample bottle for your very own.

We will be offering the Energy Meridian Scan for quick oil recommendations and we will also have our Reference Guide to Essential Oils to reference more in depth and major ailments such as impotency, depression, emotional trauma, ear infections, menopause, acne, etc and more.

Oil blends are great for healing wounds, pain, ailments and emotional healing too. Class size is limited due to the information and one on one training. Please call to register.

Anti-Aging Herbs

There's nothing like a new car, and you never forget the day your drive your first one off the lot. But eventually your new car ages, the catalytic converter becomes less effective, the exhaust isn't very clean, things begin to rust and the engine suffers wear and tear.

Our cells are like car engines. They have the same combustion process, produce some of the same byproducts and clean up with similar catalytic converters. When we're young, our enzymes (our cells' catalytic converters) function well and do a good job cleaning the toxic byproducts our bodies generate. But unfortunately, like cars, our bodies don't always function like new. As we age, our bodies produce more free radicals and less of the special enzymes that fight free radicals causing oxidative stress. The damage by oxidative stress leads to the symptoms of aging.

Stress Buster Green Juice
50 g Celery
50 g Fennel
125 g Romaine Lettuce
175 g Pineapple
1 tsp tarragon, fresh

Juice all the ingredients and process in a  blender with 2 ice cubes. Serve in a tall glass and decorate with tarragon sprigs, if liked.

Good for: Stress

High levels of stress deplete your body of essential nutrients, and can cause headaches, indigestion, irritability and joint pain. This juice combines celery and fennel,which help the body utilize magnesium and calcium to calm the nerves. Coupled with the sedative effect of lettuce, it is an ideal stress buster.
I am excited to say that I am on day #8 of my juice cleanse and feeling inspired to teach another course. I'm not sure for how long I will stay on my cleanse, but I feel fantastic. I highly recommend all people to give their bodies a break from processed and cooked foods and incorporate some live nutrients and enzymes. My favorite juice right now is grapefruit with kale. 

Be sure to talk to Cody about the Meridian Scan while you are in the store. It only takes 10-15 minutes and you will be amazed with the results and the print out! It is an inexpensive way to keep your health on track if you are short on time and cash!



* For those looking for some emotional healing along with their nutritional healing, Calgary Life Skills is starting up new classes. Please check out their website. I highly recommend their courses!
