Don’t Wait to be Winter Well

We don’t flu in my house.  We just don’t. 

Now I’m not saying no one in my house ever gets the flu, but I am saying, we don’t give it much of a chance to break in.

It’s the season...the season of bonfires, cold nights, dreary wet days and the flu, like you, is looking for a warm place to set up shop.  

No, I’m not a medical professional. I’m a mom-professional, and as I said in my previous blog, I know all about "the yuck."  

What I didn’t state was that Elderberry Syrup is a staple in my home.  


What is this syrup I speak of? It’s a mixture of a lot of nature’s goodness, boiled into a wonderful immunity booster.  

I’m sure the majority of the population could ask grandma about it and she would say she grew up on it, as did her kids.  And most adults who grew up in those generations didn’t have the “sick” days we have now.  

So besides our daily dose of NingXia (you can read about that on Distillery 9), from about October through major allergy season, we make Elderberry Syrup part of our morning daily routine too. 

Here’s a glimpse into ours:
Organic elderberry’s (I use these)
Organic local honey
Organic oranges and Lemons
Cinnamon 
Clove 
Ginger


This is a pretty basic, everyone-uses-it recipe, but I am an Essential Oil fanatic and believer in their added health benefits. 

Once my batches are cool, I add the Young Living Vitality line of the last 5 ingredients. (Don't just add any old oil. The essential oils used in my recipe are FDA approved for ingestion and the only ones I would recommend as others could/will make you very sick).


So like I said we don’t flu. At least not like most people.  

Why not take control of you and your family's health with a little cooking?  


Make it a family cooking session, especially if you have little ones. They always seem to enjoy making a mess in the kitchen and having something to show for it in the end. 

If you’d like more information including a recipe please comment or send us a message.  We would love to hear from you.  

I’ll be back soon!

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
