How to Massage Yourself with Olive Oil [VIDEO]

Posted by Joey Rea on Jun 21, 2017 3:00:00 PM


Self-massage, also known as Abhyanga, is a traditional Indian self-care regimen. It is used to help stimulate and detoxify lymph, tone the muscles, lubricate the joints, balance the nervous system, increase circulation, improve sleep patterns and much more. 

Self-massage with olive oil is something that has been practiced for centuries and is incredible for the skin. It moisturizes it while increasing its firmness - reducing wrinkles and promoting youthful skin. This treatment takes no prep time and uses an ingredient you most likely have in your kitchen. My two sisters, Mom and I have been doing this for years now and let me just tell you, it works!

Watch me demonstrate in our video below how easy and stimulating it is to self-massage with olive oil...

DIY Bath Bombs

Posted by Joey Rea on Apr 5, 2017 3:00:00 PM

Sometimes I drink wine, other times I light candles. On days when I need to totally de-stress, I look to the tub. There's nothing quite like a good bath...your muscles relax and the tension fades away in your back and neck. To make it extra luxurious, I always add a home-made bath bomb. The fizzy bubbles, essentials oils, and beneficial minerals are a treat for the senses.

This DIY Bath Bombs recipe is one of my favorites! I recommend making at least 12 at a time so you have them on hand. I keep them in a little basket by my tub. They serve as a good reminder to settle back and simmer down when I need it most :) It's about time you treated yourself, don't you think?

The Dos and Don'ts of Essential Oils

Posted by Joey Rea on Aug 29, 2016 2:23:56 PM

What are essential oils?  

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, traditional Chinese culture, Vedic Indian culture, and in the Roman Empire. The oils were used in different religious and ceremonial rituals symbolizing purification and used in healing therapies.

These oils  are highly concentrated aromatic extracts that come from various parts of a plant. These oils are most commonly steam distilled, but can also be expressed (cold pressed), percolated, extracted with a solvent, or extracted in a number of other ways. These potent oils are used in aromatherapy and often used in many other holistic healing modalities. But knowing how to use them properly is key in getting the most out of your oils..

Olive Oil Soap VS. Commercial Soap

Posted by Joey Rea on Mar 17, 2016 6:00:00 AM

It has been brought to my attention that many people are clueless when it comes to what's in a typical (or commercial) bar of soap. Yes, the soap you use to wash your hands, face and body multiple times a day. Soap's soap, right? Isn't it all the same? No.

I was taught at a young age the benefits of a natural soap and the detriments of a commercial soap. Olive oil soap (a natural soap) is an ancient form of cleansing, nourishing, and protecting the skin from external toxins. It has been used by the Egyptians, Grecians, and Romans to cleanse hair and skin and even to clean clothes. My family, thanks in large part to my mother, has been using olive oil soap for almost 20 years.

Below is a comparison between olive oil soap and commercially produced soap. The results are eye-opening and we feel the need to share with our readers.
