Update: My Capsule Wardrobe

Hello Loves,
I have been putting together my style and, what I need for my capsule wardrobe Of course, I do not want to purchase right away because I am currently losing weight and, I don’t want to search again for the clothes and, spend more money. I am looking on Poshmark and, a few other places but, the search continues for sustainable, ethical and, affordable clothing. I think I will be hitting up some  second hand shops because I am on a tiny budget. Now that I have my style for the fall and, I know what I need I am on the hunt. July has been a busy month and, to make it busier I am starting my Capsule wardrobe ebook and, of course my vegan food ebook. I don’t know what I am naming either one of them but, I am so excited! I will keep you updated when I find all my clothing for my capsule wardrobe and, on both of my ebooks.
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie

Essential Oils Heal

Hello Loves,

So, I have been sick for about a week now and, today I realized, "hey you have essential oils why not use them." I got out my three essential oils that I brought with me and, one of them happens to be eucalyptus. I am studying a book on essential oils and I went to the page, " The Respiratory System," withing that Eucalyptus is used for expectorants and, antiseptics. Did I hit the gold mine or what? I read that inhaling this essential oil was the best way to use it but, I also, put it on my chest, back, and, temples. This is about to be a " Too much info" session so, if you are squeamish do not read on. I coughed up a mucus plug immediately. It actually works! Then I boiled hot water and, put in ginger, cinnamon and, raw honey. Yes, I used honey, I have a debate in my head almost all the time if I should be consuming honey because it comes from an animal, it is taken away from the bees, and, spikes the bodies insulin levels. Because I only use honey on occasion I decided today was the day to use it if I wanted to try to cure myself in a more natural way. I avoid honey almost all the time and replace it with agave but, it is the only exception from my list when it comes to being vegan. Honey, has amazing healing proprieties that I only use when I am very sick. Ideally, I would not use honey at all and, have the bees just have access to their honey but, I did not want to take an antibiotic.  I thought the honey thing needed an explanation especially when I take the planet, animals so seriously as a vegan. Right now I am feeling a lot better and, I wish I had realized that I had the eucalyptus sooner. I did use unnatural medicines this week and, I would like to look into holistic/natural alternatives for them so, if you know of any please let me know in the comments below. I have been using nasal decongestant, cough medicine, ibuprofen, benadryl, and, mucus relief medicine. Of course, I did not take these all at once nor did I take them in the same day. I have used one or two of them together throughout the course of the week. I did take nasal decongestant this morning and, a little cough medicine as I am having a meeting and, do not want to cough all over while in it. However, I did not use the mucus relief medicine and, the eucalyptus acted in the same way it would have. It is so important to get back into a natural way of living and, I would like to get rid of my intake of medicine filled with chemicals unless, it is necessary. I am forward thinking with my approach to natural medicine yet, I am not ignorant to the fact that we may need some medicines that aren't natural to help us get better.  Hearing stories about vegans who became so pure thinking that they refused to drink water because it wasn't pure enough and, then died from dehydration reminds me that there is a happy medium when it comes to being vegan and, I am glad I am not an extremist who can't see what they are doing is actually killing them. I am not a doctor or medical profession i am just studying up on a better way to help myself through life when I fall ill. Moving into a new direction I am so thrilled to be studying up on hacks and, green living so I can bring you my series very soon. Please stay tuned for that as well as both of my ebooks which will be out sometime in the early fall. I have a lot of work to do for you all and, I am beyond thrilled. I am studying up on essential oils because I will be coming out with a lotion line by late fall just in time for the holidays! So little time an, so much excitement!
Have an enlightening an adventurous day,
