I Forgot Already -- What Did I Just Say?
Poor memory is not just for those of us who are getting older...it's also for those of us who have too many things going on in our lives. Taking care of family, the house, a job, pets, all those little projects we do--they can all take a toll on us. It starts by us forgetting where we left our keys and snowballs into "OMG What day is it?"
It happens to everyone. It's just the universe's way of saying "Whoa, you need to slow down a bit. Take care of yourself too, okay?"
Try eating foods that are good for you--whole foods are so much better than processed foods. Greens, fresh veggies and fruit, grown locally is the best; maybe a little raw honey every morning. And how about some exercise? A walk every day in the fresh air is so beneficial for you--and to make it even better, take your child or a pet with you! Teach your children how important exercise is.
What's not good for you is the insufficient supply of nutrients to your brain, and also exposure to free radicals. Getting your share of anti-oxidant rich foods will solve both these issues.
Another way to help with poor memory is by using Rosemary. It's refreshing and stimulating. Try adding 10 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil in your bath and soak for 15 minutes. Or you can add a few drops to your massage oil, lotion, or other products that contact your skin. (Avoid use during pregnancy or if you have high blood pressure or epilepsy.) Breathe deeply, find some time to relax, and take care of yourself!
Heaven and Earth Essentials carries many different types of pure essential oils, which we can add to our products. And if you desire an essential oil that we do not currently carry, we will find it for you. Our website has an entire category devoted to them and we are ready to help you determine which one is best for you.
