CDC Says the Flu Shot is Less Effective - Try These Natural Remedies Instead!

CDC Says the Flu Shot is Less Effective - Try These Natural Remedies Instead!Scientists are concerned about what they're seeing so far this flu season, the director of

the Centers for Disease Control said Thursday, due to the cells mutating. Citizens everywhere are dependent on what's now, no longer helpful, and are in need of some alternative options.  We at Eurospa, understand the need for medicine that works, which is why we look to nature to healing.  Medicine and nature both have their place. When the flu hits, it's good to be educated. So, since the CDC says the flu shot is less effect, so try these natural remedies instead! 

Start with steam
CDC Says the Flu Shot is Less Effective - Try These Natural Remedies Instead!We've said it before, because it's what we're built on. Steam is one of the best things you can do for this cold and flu.  Our bronchial passages open up and relax their tension upon meeting the steam. As well, when you spray Eucalyptus oil into the steam the effects are even greater.  Eucalyptus oil not only stimulates the immune system, but also relieves pain and acts as an anti-bacterial agent. Simply spray into shower steam or into a stove top pot for faster inhalation. Do this twice per day.

Homemade tonic
Making your own tonic is a strong way to support your immune system whether keeping the germs away or to get better faster. Combine in one glass:
-1 TBSP raw honey
-1 TBSP raw apple cider vinegar
-1 crushed garlic clove
-1 drop of therapeutic grade oregano oil* (it's important to only use therapeutic grade oils when ingesting.)  Also keep in mind that oregano, a powerful antiviral and antibiotic, is a HOT oil, meaning that it can burn if left too strong on the skin.  Be sure to only put one drop per glass. IF the oil get's on your lips, simply rub on olive or coconut oil rather than water as water will only intensify the heat.   

Both remedies have significantly treated the many different symptoms that are common with this years cold and flu viruses.  At Eurospa, we value your health and want to know that life is being enjoyed for you at it's best.

The Perfect Christmas Gift and How to Use it for Better Health!

Don't Shop Til You Drop! Here's the Perfect Christmas Gift and How to Use it for Better Health!It's hard to find the perfect Christmas gift.  But if you could find a gift that not only delivered great skin, but improved health as well, wouldn't you want to know the secret? 

We thought you would. All people everywhere have the right to both feel good and look their best. So why not do it naturally? There's a lot of hype out there promising results from expensive serums. But the truth is, your skin is one large detoxification organ. If it's angry, the inside is angry too. Eucalyptus has antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties causing it to very efficient at cleansing the body when inhaled and absorbed through steam.


Eucalyptus steam inhalation is recommended by some alternative practitioners for relieving nasal congestion and sinus congestion, usually from colds and flu. It can be done two to four times a day to relieve symptoms. If you're not able to do this, a steamy shower, vaporizer, or facial sauna is an alternative.
Eucalyptus oil is an essential oil which can be found in many health food stores and online. It should not be confused with camphor oil. Eucalyptus oil should not be ingested, applied directly to the skin, or used in excess of suggested amounts.

This is why Eurospa developed a eucalyptus oil shower spray. We knew you deserved the benefits and we want to deliver. Below are a few ways to benefit from this amazing oil:

Instructions For Stove Top Steaming

Fill the kettle and bring the water to a boil.
Place the bowl on a stable surface, such as a table.
Turn the kettle off and carefully pour approximately four to six cups of water into the bowl.
Add two to three drops of eucalyptus oil to the water.
With your head at approximately arm's length away, cover your head with the towel. Don't bring your face too close to the water.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Continue for 10 minutes.
If you start to feel overheated or uncomfortable, remove the sheet.

Shower Steam Option

While the stove top is a great option, busy people may want to be more efficient with their time, and opt to steam in the shower or bath tub. For this, we provide an affordable Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray that you can spray into the steam.  We suggest you close up all bathroom doors, windows and curtains to achieve the full affect. 

Safety Precautions

Do not add more than the suggested amount of eucalyptus oil.
Keep children away while doing a eucalyptus steam inhalation.
Certain people should avoid eucalyptus steam inhalation, such as those with heart conditions, central nervous system disorders, and pregnant women. Infants, children, and elderly people may not be able to respond appropriately to the heat.      [source]


At Eurospa, our passion is to provide you with the highest quality products possible to allow you the chance at great health and divine relaxation.  We are proud to offer the gift of health to you this holiday season!

Get the Best Essential Oils to Boost Your Immune System for Winter!

Get the Best Essential Oils to Boost Your Immune System for Winter!Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine will help keep your immune system stronger, shorten your recovery time from illness and uplift your spirits when the winter weather keeps you inside a bit more than you would like. Pure therapeutic essential oils have the ability to work with the body on a spiritual, mental and physical plane to bring the body to a place of balance and harmony. Take care of your health and get the best essential oils to boost your immune system for winter.
Two or three drops of rosemary oil or eucalyptus oil shower spray on the bottom of the shower before you turn the water on will disperse into the air and as you breathe it in you are supporting your immune system. Diffusing lemon, lime or grapefruit essential oil into the air of your home or office not only uplifts the spirits, it inhibits the growth of bacteria, making indoor air safer to inhale. (For best results, diffuse essential oils diluted in water.)
At the first sign of a cold or sinus infection try a facial steam with lavender or tea tree oil. Place two drops of the pure oil in a glass bowl then fill with hot water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and breathe the steam deeply in through your nose. You are breathing in these pure antibacterial and antiviral essential oils. Do this two or three times during the day as the infection is beginning and it will often shorten the length of sickness or even stop you from becoming sick altogether. If you can’t do a steam, try dropping a few drops of the essential oils on a tissue and breathe it in throughout the day. You will still be getting the therapeutic effects of the oils.
Salt or sugar body scrubs that have been blended with pure essential oils are a winter skin must-have. When you stimulate the surface of the skin with a scrub it brings blood to the surface and helps rid the body of toxins through the pores. Doing a body scrub with peppermint or rosemary oil in the shower boosts the immune system while leaving your skin clean, soft and moisturized.
Here are my top must haves for winter immune boosting:
Lavender:  for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties as well as its ability to help us relax and rest. Mix with a carrier oil and pat it gently on to your face with the palms of your hands.
Tea Tree: is antiviral and is an excellent immune stimulant. Mix into the above oil blend for increased immune benefits. 
Eucalyptus: is anti-infectious and antiviral, fighting off infections. Use the eucalyptus oil shower spray in your shower steam to really open up your bronchial passages for respiratory health. 
Rosemary: is antiseptic and astringent and helps fight bacteria.
Lemon: is an immune stimulant as well as an antiseptic, which makes it an excellent choice to diffuse into winter air. Get a therapeutic grade lemon oil and put a couple drops in your tea or cold water bottle to boost your system while cleansing it at the same time. Take caution and never ingest food grade (or lesser grade oils); only ingest certified pure therapeutic grade lemon oil
Peppermint: for its analgesic, anti-infectious properties. Pat a small amount on your temples and at the base of your neck to relieve tension and pressure. Inhale the scent to give your energy a boost in the morning and throughout the day as well!
Whichever method you choose to incorporate essential oils into your life this winter, I encourage you to buy pure, high quality oils from a company you trust and use them wisely, as these oils are medicines. Be safe and handle them with respect.
Eurospa is dedicated to your health and well being. Please let us know how we can further support your healthy lifestyle!

Scent Your Home For the Holidays Naturally Without the Toxic Chemicals!

Scent Your Home For the Holidays Naturally Without the Toxic Chemicals!Simmer pots are a super simple way to scent your home without the chemicals of sprays and store bought fragrances.  They also make great gifts! Maybe you like burning seasonal scented candles, but haven’t tried any natural scents.  Or maybe you would like to have a more natural alternative for adding scents to your home.  Whatever your preference there couldn’t be anything more quick and easy than homemade aroma recipes that you can simmer on your stove with common ingredients from your kitchen.
Combine your ingredients in a mason jar-you can use whatever quantities you have on hand. I promise it will still make your home smell fantastic!
Here is a list of the type of herbs, spices and fruits you will want to look for:

  • Spices : cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, etc
Cooking Directions
  • Fill a saucepan ¾ full with water along with your desired combination of peelings, spices, herbs and extracts. Bring mixture to a boil.

Replenish with more water as needed.
  • You can reuse your mixture 1-2 times, depending on the ingredients you put in your mix.  Just store in a glass jar with a lid in the refrigerator.  The mixture will keep for a few days.
  • As you cook stovetop scents you will notice that the ingredients don’t stay pretty looking.  You can always refresh your mixture with some new orange or lemon slices to float on the top.

Get the Most Out Of Your Essential Oils with the Benefits of an Ultrasonic Diffuser!

Get the Most Out Of Your Essential Oils with the Benefits of an Ultrasonic Diffuser!#Giftideas for the holidays or year round


Using essential oils for Aromatherapy is not just a pleasurable way to scent your home, essential oils carry many inherent benefits for the mind and body. We are especially fond of our own Eucalyptus based shower spray; a spray made to be the perfect addition to any steam room or shower to cleanse and boost the respiratory and circulatory system. But there are many many oils out there and people are often curious about which are the best ways are to get receive the benefits of essential oils. The answer will always vary based on the condition a person wants to treat, but if you're looking to breathe in the benefits from the air while adding scent to your home, you'll likely want to consider an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser.

Ultrasonic diffusers disperse natural aromas and create healthy living environments using advanced air technologies with many benefits over heat-based diffusers that use candles or heat elements. Ultasonics use a high-frequency, low-energy vibrations to break down essential oils into fine particles as a mist that is dispersed into the air. There are numerous benefits to this system, allowing you to do all of the following:
  • Use Less Oil. Diffusers that use heat burn through oils very quickly to disperse the same amount of scent into your air. When using an ultrasonic diffuser, you only use a fraction as much essential oil to get the same fragrance effect.
  • Purify Your Air. These diffusers purify, sterilize and deodorize the air you breathe, which can help control allergies/hay feverasthmacold & flu symptomseczema/psoriasis, emphysema, etc.
  • Improve Wellbeing. These diffusers circulate negative ions, which increase the flow of oxygen to the brain. This helps relieve stressmental fatigue/concentration and headaches and improve breathing and sleep.
  • Humidify. These diffusers humidify the air, which is useful in air-conditioned rooms or arid climates where dry air is harmful to the skin.
  • Reap the Benefits of Oils. When using ultrasonic diffusers, essential oils are broken down into much smaller, lighter particles, than they do with heat methods. They can travel more deeply into your sinuses or down into your bronchial passages to do their healing work. 
Do your research and see which brand is best for you. Always read reviews and choose high quality products as your health is worth the investment. At Eurospa, we always strive to bring you the highest quality home and commercial spa products.  This winter, we invite you to breathe in the benefits and feel good... naturally!

3 Healthy Thanksgiving Side Dishes to Enjoy Without the Guilt!

3 Healthy Thanksgiving Side Dishes to Enjoy Without the Guilt!If you're bored with the same old mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and other thanksgiving side dishes, we want to share some not-so-common twists on some old fall recipes! What's important for any Thanksgiving feast is that the foods be packed full of nutrients and have an array of color to display.  Even better?  These dishes are far more healthy than their predecessors and will leave your guests happily full without the bloating and guilt!

Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole Topped with Caramelized Bananas

This recipe is much healthier than cooking sweet potatoes with heavy cream, refined sugar and marshmallows...and more creative too.
  • 3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 large bananas, thinly sliced on an angle
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar or drizzle with agave nectar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and roast until tender, about 1 hour. Remove from heat and let cool until cool enough to handle. (Keep oven at 350 degrees F). Peel and mash sweet potatoes in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the butter, stock, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Transfer to a casserole dish. Cover the surface of the potatoes with the banana slices by laying them on top, slightly overlapping in concentric circles. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the top. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is browned.

Green (& White) Beans With Almonds


  • 1 pd Green Beans
  • 1 pd. Wax Beans (white string beans)
  • 1 Lg. Red Onion
  • ? cup Toasted Almond Slivers
  • 4-8 cloves Garlic
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt and coriander to taste
  • Mince garlic and saute in pan.  Add onions and cook half-way. Toast almonds with a little oil in separate pan. Mix everything together with beans. Put flame on low and cover. Add lemon juice, salt, and coriander. Cook until beans are as soft as you like them!

Roasted Butternut Squash & Sweet Potatoes

  • 1 large (or 2 medium) butternut squash
  • 1 large sweet potato (not to be confused with a yam)
  • 6-8 tablespoons butter or earth balance spread, melted
  • Agave to taste
  • Light brown sugar--I just used about 2 tbsp because I was trying to be healthy, but this would probably be really good with more
  • Salt
Remove seeds, cut ends, and peel squash (you can leave skin on if you want - it's very nutritious and will soften when you cook it.) Cut into chunks--doesn't really matter what size as long as you're consistent--large is probably best. Cut sweet potato into same size chunks--leave skin on (it's healthier that way.) Put on baking sheet or pan.

Add melted butter, salt, and agave and roll all ingredients together. You should do this with your (clean) hands. Partly because it's fun to get your hands dirty. Partly because it will allow everything to be distributed more evenly.

Roast on 400 for 45 min to an hour. You'll know it's done when squash is soft and the glaze begins to caramelize. Make sure to mix things around a few times while it's cooking. Great fall side dish! (thanks to active.com for the recipes!)
At Eurospa, we love to celebrate.  We also love enjoying great health! So, of course we are thrilled to have the chance to celebrate a national holiday and feel healthy doing it! We offer the highest quality home and commercial wellness products around, including our very famous Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray. This Thanksgiving, we are raising a toast to family, to gratitude and to your health! Happy Holidays!

Avoid Carcinogens in Your Beauty Products With These DIY Solutions

There is a lot of information out there raising awareness to a pretty sad issue.  Major beauty companies are knowingly adding carcinogenic ingredients to their products.  Since our skin absorbs what touches it, it's important that our whole body, scalp included, be treated with respect and care. 

Thanks to the people at inhabitat.com, we are able to pass on some important information to you:

"You may have thought that the worst thing your shampoo could do to you is to sting your eyes, but it turns out that your shampoo could be deadly. The Center for Environmental Health based in Oakland, California, performed a study on shampoos and soaps and found that 98 included a possible carcinogen known as cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA).
Cocamide DEA is a chemically modified form of coconut oil that is used as a thickener or foaming agent in shampoo. However, the state of California has outlawed its use, because it may be carcinogenic to humans. The CEH is suing companies producing and distributing these products, including Prell, Paul Mitchell and Colgate Palmolive shampoos. Also included are products marketed to children, and even one which falsely claims to be organic (Organic by Africa’s Best.)
Until things are resolved, it seems like getting shampoo in your eyes may have become the least of your concerns. You can find a full list of all 98 suspect shampoos here."

In the same chord, Vick's Vapor Rub has been found to do similar damage.  A quote from LiveStrong states the following:

Avoid Carcinogens in Your Beauty Products With These DIY Solutions
Lung infections like pneumonia can occur from misuse of Vicks Vapor Rub.  Photo Credit thorax x-ray of the lungs image by JoLin 
"Vicks Vapor Rub brand has been marketed for treatment of cough and congestion, such as from colds or allergies, and muscle aches. Vapor Rub contains the chemicals menthol and camphor, which provide numbing and counter-irritant action on sore muscles. When applied to the chest and nose areas, the pungent odor of the combined chemicals may suppress cough and seems to open stuffy airways and nasal passages; however, it is likely that the decongestant benefits are superficial and that the chemicals provide a cooling effect to make breathing easier for short time periods. Regardless, Vicks Vapor Rub is used frequently in adults and children older than two years of age, and care should be taken to avoid side effects."

You deserve alternatives. Let's start with one for each, shall we? 

For shampoo, make your own at home with this recipe: 
Avoid Carcinogens in Your Beauty Products With These DIY Solutions
1 C liquid castile soap 
1/4 C olive oil
1/8 C honey 
(thanks, Pretty Smart Girl!

For a Vicks Vapor Rub Alternative:

Get a bottle or two of Eurospa's Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray.  The active ingredient in Vick's is also Eucalyptus, as it's antibacterial with menthol clearing properties. Simply Spray the product into shower or bath steam for a simple enhanced effect. Or add it to a humidifier for respiratory needs. 

The beauty and wellness industry often does nothing to keep you well. We at Eurospa are happy to provide alternatives for you. You deserve it.  Knowledge is power, pass it on!

Looking for the Perfect Christmas Gift? It's Right Here!

Looking for a Christmas Gift that Benefits Your Health? It's Right Here!We spend so much time searching for the perfect holiday gift for our loved ones, whether it's for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and more! Whether you plan in advance or wait until the last week, the same question comes to mind: WHAT am I going to buy? 

Some people are hard to buy for and for some it's far too easy, but one thing that remains in common is that people like to feel good. They like to be relaxed and enjoy the feeling of good health.

This is why we recommend eucalyptus oil shower spray as this years best gift (stocking stuffer too!) From warding off winter colds to cooling those summer burns, this gift is one that will keep giving back the entire year!

Benefits of Eucalyptus Oil

Arterial Vasodilator
Eucalyptus will help dilate the circulatory system, increasing circulation. Use 1 drop during massage over any area of concern.
Asthma
During an asthma attack, massage 1-2 drops over the chest. Also, inhale the aroma directly or diffuse in the air.
Brain Blood Flow
Diffuse or spray the mist throughout the home or classroom to increase circulation to the brain.
Bronchitis
Use topically or aromatically, massaging into the chest, back and throat, inhaling from the bottle, or dropping the oil on the shirt collar.
Congestion
Eucalyptus oil uses included clearly congestion from the airways. I recommend inhaling for nasal congestion and massaging the oil over all other affected areas.
Looking for a Christmas Gift that Benefits Your Health? It's Right Here!
Cooling
Yes, eucalyptus oil uses even include cooling the body down. Place several drops in a spray bottle, along with peppermint oil if you'd like some extra oomph, and spritz over the body. 
Coughs
Diffuse or spray throughout the room throughout the span of the illness, but also massage into the reflex points of the feet (follow the application guidelines in the link above), as well as over the chest, back, and throat. *Be sure to add the shower mist spray to a hot shower, bath or steam room, as this will quickly break through congestion and mucous for faster relief of respiratory conditions.
Diabetes
Because of the vasodilation mention above, using eucalyptus on a daily basis can increase circulation, a common issue for diabetics. I recommend massaging it into the body with lotion after each shower, as the massage will also help increase circulation.
Disinfectant
Its antiviral and antibacterial properties naturally make cleaning among one of the eucalyptus oil uses. Follow this household cleaners guide for more information.
Dysentery
Massage 2 drops of eucalyptus over the abdomen in a counter-clockwise direction to ease diarrhea, inflammation, and fight infection.
Ear Inflammation
Never put essential oil IN the ear canal! However, you can massage the oil on and around the outer ear. Use only 1 drop to start, diluted for children.
Emphysema
Eucalyptus oil uses are wonderful for all manner of respiratory disease. Diffuse or spray your personal sized mist the oil daily, massage 1 drop over the chest at least once a day, and another drop into the reflex points of the feet.
Expectorant
To help drain mucus from the lungs, massage 1 drop into the reflex points of the feet and apply another drop over the chest at least once a day (I'd personally do three times a day if no sensitivity is found).
Fever
Because eucalyptus oil uses include cooling the body (above), using during a high fever can help the body regulate its temperature and support its efforts in fighting infection.
Flu
Depending on your flu symptoms, eucalyptus oil uses will vary. You can apply to the abdomen to ease diarrhea, massage into aching joints and muscles, or simply diffuse through the air to fight infection.
Hypoglycemia
Another of eucalyptus oil uses, you can help regulate your blood sugar by massaging 1-2 drops into the soles of the feet daily.
Inflammation
Massage 1-2 drops over the afflicted area, always moving toward the heart to support the lymphatic system.
Iris Inflammation
This recommend comes from Modern Essentials (mentioned below). While you should never put essential oils IN the eyes, massaging into the temples may support the irises.
Jet Lag
Eucalyptus oil uses include waking up the body with its slightly sweet, fruity, and uplifting aroma. Use topically or aromatically.
Kidney Stones
Massage 1-2 drops of the oil over the afflicted area up to three times a day.
Lice
Its natural insecticidal properties make this among one of the more surprising of eucalyptus oil uses. Read more about treating lice naturally here.
Measles
Diffuse  and spray your mist throughout the home for the length of the illness, and massage 1-2 drops into the reflex points of the feet 2-3 times a day.
Neuralgia
Another of the little-known eucalyptus oil uses, massaging into the areas of concern daily can reduce pain.
Neuritis
Along with neuralgia, massage several drops into the reflex points of the feet and over the affected areas can reduce inflammation.
Overexercised Muscles
Strain, fatigue, etc can all be treated with a gentle massage of eucalyptus oil. Always massage toward the heart to move the lactic acid buildup through the lymphatic system.
Pain
Depending on the type of pain, eucalyptus oil uses may necessitate application to the reflex points of the feet or directly over the area of concern.
Pneumonia
Help the lungs to clear by diffusing constantly and massaging directly over the lungs. Use the shower mist as often as possible.  It will also help to massage eucalyptus into the reflex points of the hands and feet. 
Rhinitis
Reduce inflammation and open airways by inhaling directly from the bottle, massaging one drop over the sinuses, or applying as a hot compress.
Shingles
Eucalyptus oil uses include shingles for its antiviral properties, as well as its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Massage into the affected areas daily, add to a warm bath, or use a hot compress over the area.
Sinusitis
Apply as a hot compress over the sinuses and massage 1-2 drops into the reflex points of the feet (toes and pads of the feet). You can also inhale directly or diffuse throughout the room.
Tennis Elbow
I highly recommend finding a massage therapist who specializes in treating tennis elbow and bringing along your eucalyptus to include in the deep massage of the area.
Tuberculosis
Eucalyptus oil uses include fighting the bacterial infection, clearly the lungs, reducing inflammation and more. Diffuse constantly and massage 2 drops into the chest and over the back.

With a list that extensive, who WOULDN'T want such a healing remedy stocked in their home? We invite you to stop by and buy a bottle of Eurospa's Eucalyptus Oils Shower Spray today for yourself AND your loved ones for the holidays. They deserve great health and SO DO YOU.

These Simple Tips Will Reduce Illness During Cold & Flu Season!

These Simple Tips Will Reduce Illness During Cold & Flu Season!As the fall and winter months unfold, getting a cold or flu may feel unavoidable to you and your family. But rest assured, there are definitely some natural and simple tips to reduce illness during cold and flu season for you and the whole family. 

Vitamin D. 
Vitamin D is the number one prevention and treatment for illness as it is an amazingly effective antimicrobial agent, producing 200 to 300 different antimicrobial peptides in your body that kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. The best source for vitamin D is direct sunlight exposure, but isn't always available for many or practical during the winter. The next best thing to sunlight is the use of a safe indoor tanning device. If neither natural nor artificial sunlight is an option, then using oral supplements is your best bet.

Healthy food intake
The following foods are extremely beneficial for your overall health and strength of your immune system. Be sure to get a balanced amount of each.

-Fermented foods such as kefir, kimchee, miso, pickles, sauerkraut, etc.
-Raw, organic eggs from free-ranging chickens 
-Coconuts and coconut oil
-Locally grown fruits and vegetables
-Mushrooms, especially Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake, which contain beta glucans (which have immune-enhancing properties)
-Garlic, a potent antimicrobial that kills bacteria, viruses AND fungi
-Herbs and spices with high ORAC scores: Turmeric, oregano, cinnamon, cloves 

Drink Water
Keeping hydrated allows the body to both function efficiently and to flush toxins and bacteria from your system. Water is essential for the optimal function of every system in your body.

Sleep
Make sure you are getting an adequate amount sleep. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, or enough restorative sleep, you’ll be at increased risk for a hostile viral takeover.

Steam
The body loves a chance to release stored toxins in the skin and other organs. Either create a good steaming shower and add our eucalyptus oil shower spray to the mix or do the same in a quality sauna or steam room.  This will also fight bronchial infections, respiratory struggles, improve circulation and alleviate pain from fibromyalgia and arthritis. 

At Eurospa, we are committed to your health and the health of the world around you.  Please take close care of your immune system this season and talk to us about our other products available for personal and spa use!

Happy Halloween! How to Protect Your Health From the Sugar Shock!

Happy Halloween! How to Protect Your Health From the Sugar Shock!Halloween is here and there's about to be a lot of sugar consumed!  You need to protect your health from the sugar shock! Of course, we all know it's fun to go crazy with the treats, but it's important to find the healthy balance ahead of time to make sure you don't go through with-drawls for the next week. 

These tips are great for preventative and treatment for both kids and adults. So, read on and get ready!

KEEP HYDRATED
I can't say it enough.  Any ache, pain, ailment.....  always reach for water first! When we eat too much sugar, our muscles hold onto it like caramel in the fibers. These caramel coatings absorb extra water as a muscular protection; this creates a dehydrated atmosphere. If you are drinking alcohol or coffee as well, you will be adding to additional dehydration.  So, stay sober and healthy or add tons of water to the mix to both flush toxins and keep the body hydrated. 

EAT GREENS

Sugar robs the body of minerals, that can cause dizziness, fatigue and bloating. Eating dark green leafy vegetables, juices and smoothies, brings a mineral balance back to the body, helping you feel alive and fresh again. 

TWIST IT: 
Just like wringing out a wet towel of it's moisture, twisting your body can aid in releasing toxins stored in your intestines or stomach lining.  It's very simple.  You just sit down on the floor with your back straight up and your legs outstretched, together in front of you.  Now, bend and pull your left leg up and place your foot on the floor, with your knee standing up and your foot touching your inner right thigh.  Now take a deep breath, and as you exhale, slowly turn your body to the left as far as you can go, exhaling all the air out.  Then, as you twist back to center, inhale gently.  Switch legs and repeat this process on the other side.  Keep doing this if you can for 3-5 repetitions and then lay flat on your back and relax.  Your belly will thank you. 

ESSENTIAL OILS: 
There are a few ways to ease your stomach ache with essential oils.  One, is to place a couple drops of peppermint oil or tincture into your glass of water. (It's important to remember that you should aim to stay hydrated during this time anyway.  While that may not sound appealing, the peppermint will help ease that distaste.) Next, it's good to have a bottle of Eucalyptus Oil Shower Mist on hand anyway, for many reasons!  One being that you can add it to the steam of the above suggested bath for internal relaxation and refreshment; great for internal spasms! Another use being that you can grab a little caster oil, mixed with a little coconut oil and rub that gently on your abdomen.  Then spray the eucalyptus onto your belly and rub in a clockwise motion.  The oils will carry the anti microbial and anti-spasmatic power of the eucalyptus into your body and allow them to work their healing magic.  

Nobody wants sugar to put a damper on their summer fun, but if you end up with the aches and pains, it's comforting to know that there are options out there that are natural and efficient in bringing healing and relief.
