Natural alternative to the flu shot


This article reminded me of the natural, home remedy I started making last year to stave off flu-like symptoms the moment I start to feel under the weather. It’s a strong drink to taste and smell, but it works like a charm every time.

Chop up equal parts of the following ingredients, raw garlic, raw ginger, and raw onion; add it to a half cup of water then add a dash or two of red hot pepper. Dump it into a blender and blend until it’s smooth enough to drink. Pour out 3 tablespoons, about the amount of a shot and then drink. Chase it with water to help dull the strong taste. Take one more tablespoon before bed and you’ll wake up the following morning feeling like yourself again.

Health and Wellness

fruits-veggies-herbs-collageIn an effort to evolve the blog beyond sharing bath and body products and the ups and downs of growing an online home-based business, I will share a little more about my background and interests. One of my biggest interests over the last several years, other than growing my bath and body business, is health and wellness as it pertains to holistic health.

I am an advocate of using fruits & vegetables and herbs & spices as a natural source to heal what ails us internally and externally. I will write about recipes, home remedies from personal experience, and share articles I find online that promotes holistic health and wellness. Of course, sharing my bath and body products will remain the number one focus of the blog, but it’s time to add more content that will be a benefit to others while having an outlet to share more about my efforts to maintain a holistic lifestyle.
