The newest craze in the world of relaxation is CBD infused skin care products and massages. CBD (cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant that has been proven to help reduce stress, anxiety, and inflammation — but no, it won't get you high.

To understand how it works, here's a breakdown on CBD:

Aromatherapy massage is Swedish massage therapy using massage oil or lotion that contains highly concentrated plant oils or essential oils.

During an aromatherapy massage, the oils are aromatically inhaled and absorbed through your skin. Essential oils are widely known to promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to influence the nervous system. Because of this they have many unique effects on the body and overall health, some of the benefits are:

Scheduling a day at the spa is one of those things that never stops feeling like a luxury.
For many of us, massage is a go-to experience – but why? You may know that you feel renewed afterward, but what is it that keeps us coming back for more?

It’s the Most Skin Battering Time of the Year

Winter weather doesn’t just make you shiver, it also dries out your skin. Winter is here and each snowfall brings with it a glorious winter wonderland! But that wonderland, no matter how beautiful, can be hell on your skin once the sky clears. Winter’s cold air sucks the moisture out of our skins, making our hands, feet and face uncomfortably dry. That dryness can also trigger cracking, flaking and even eczema to those prone to the itchy skin condition.

Regardless if it is a Birthday, Mother’s Day, Chanukah or Christmas, it is often hard to come up with meaningful gifts for our friends and family.  For many years, I was giving monetary gift cards to my hard to please pips.  The problem with that is that it is something they spend and forget about.  On the other hand, giving a present can also be problematic as many people already have similar things or have a different taste; that is hard to cater to.

As the holidays approach, we all get busy and sometimes forget to take time for ourselves. Obviously it’s important to schedule some ‘me’ time for relaxing, but it’s also important to maintain the healthy lifestyle you’ve been working towards all year. Think about it, if you give up on your health and wellness just two months out of the year that’s more than 16% of your life spent living unhealthy. In short, don’t give up and tell yourself that you’ll hit the ‘reset button” in January.

Do you ever wonder why some people rarely seem to “catch” a cold or flu during this season or any other season, for that matter?  I know I do!  Normally I do not succumb to the relatively mild mannered rhino virus or the nastier flu strains, however, approximately once every three to five years I will get a doozie of cold.  I also know that when this happens it is because I have not taken care of myself from a nutritional perspective; in my case, that normally means too much sugar.  I have a number of friends and associates that fit into the “rarely” category, so I think it would be benefi
