3 Easy Ways to Keep Beat Dry Skin in the Middle of Winter

3 Easy Ways to Keep Beat Dry Skin in the Middle of WinterDry skin is an uncomfortable byproduct of winter. Going from an overly heated car or indoor space into the crisp cold winter air can be a real shock to your skin, causing tightening, dehydration and flaking. Nobody wants that. That’s why we want to share some tried and true natural fixes to an annoying problem.

Here are 3 Easy Ways to Keep Beat Dry Skin in the Middle of Winter

An exfoliating scrub made by concocting lemon juice and sugar leaves your skin soft and glowing. With a circular massage of the skin with this beauty scrub, rough spots on the face become even. The vitamins C in the lemons is a good astringent that lightens the skin tone, removes patches on the skin and encourages cell growth. Mix a teaspoon of sugar and mix it with juice of half a lemon, use cotton balls to scrub all over the face. Put a jar of it on your nightstand and apply it regularly.

Winter is not a friend to dry skin. The heating in homes evaporate the water from the air, which makes the air very dry. Humidifiers come in useful at a time like this by adding moisture to the air, and thus benefiting your dry skin. Either humidify the whole room or get a portable humidifier. We definitely recommend adding a few sprays of our eucalyptus oil shower spray to the room to enhance the health and wellness benefits. Eucalyptus in the air will not only open up the bronchial passages for better respiratory health and to cleanse the skin!

Moisture forms a protective layer on the skin keeping it safe by keeping it hydrated. Oils that are easily absorbed by the skin, such as coconut, jojoba and almond, tend to be better at keeping the real moisture in, allowing the skin the best nourishment possible. Coconut oil makes the skin feel softer and removes its previous scaly characteristic by moistening it in a natural way. Coconut oil has sufficient amounts of fatty acid that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin. It works best when left on for an entire night. Apply proper amount before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning; do this every night. Over the counter creams work well in the beginning but only leave a surface layer of hydration.  

Bonus tip?
Drink more water and reduce your caffeine intake. Caffeine dehydrates the skin cells and causes inflammation. Drinking water does the opposite; calms the skin and nourishes the cells, causing you to adapt to the changing temperatures more easily and beautifully!

Mint Has Some Shocking Health Benefits You Don’t Want to Miss. [the 4th is amazing!]

Mint Has Some Shocking Health Benefits You Don’t Want to Miss. [the 4th is amazing!]Everyone has these little (and big) ailments that get in the way of your daily life and the ability to enjoy it. Some of the more common complaints are body pain, fatigue and low spirits. We’ve all been there and we all know someone who’s been there.
What’s beautiful is that you don’t have to go at it alone and you can find relief with natural remedies. One remedy in particular is mint… combined with eucalyptus. Both are powerful. So why not combine them?

Here are some of the benefits:

Nausea & Headache: Again, the strong and refreshing aroma of mint is a quick and effective remedy for nausea. Even just the smell of mint oil or freshly crushed mint leaves or the use of any product with mint flavor, and your stomach issues will be alleviated. In fact, many people keep menthol oil or mint-flavored products with them at all time to avoid nausea. Balms with a mint base or basic mint oil, when rubbed on the forehead and nose, gives quick relief in case of headache. Mint is a naturally soothing substance, so it can alleviate the inflammation and temperature rise that is often associated with headaches and migraines.
Respiratory Disorders and Coughs: The strong aroma of mint is very effective in clearing up congestion of the nose, throat, bronchi and lungs, which gives relief for respiratory disorders that often result from asthma and the common cold. As mint cools and soothes the throat, nose and other respiratory channels, it relieves the irritation which causes chronic coughing. This is the main reason why so many balms are based on mint. Unlike the inhalers that are based on aerosols, those with mint as the fundamental component tend to be more effective and eco-friendly as well.
Asthma: Regular use of mint is very beneficial for asthma patients, as it is a good relaxant and relieves congestion. That being said, using too much mint in this way can also irritate the nose and throat.
Depression and Fatigue: Mint is a natural stimulant, and the smell alone can be enough to charge your batteries and get your brain functioning on a high level again. If you are feeling sluggish, anxious, depressed, or simply exhausted, mint and its derivative essential oils can help. It can be ingested, applied topically in a salve form, or inhaled as a vapor, and all of those techniques can give you a much-needed boost! A popular way to get good results in an easy manner is to put a few drops of mint essential oil or menthol oil on your pillow at night and let it work on your body and mind while you sleep. []
Of course, talk to your doctor if the issue is bigger and needs closer attention. But for acute complaints, this natural remedy works wonders and is easy to get into your home. Get this for yourself and for your family. Get it today and see the difference.

Fight Adrenal Fatigue Naturally with These Simple Home Remedies

Fight Adrenal Fatigue Naturally with These Simple Home RemediesNobody like that feeling of exhaustion that hits right around 3pm, where you have to wonder if just one more cup of coffee is a good idea. You don’t know how to do without it. And on top of it all, you’re counting down the hours left until you can sleep again.
If you have felt this way or feel this way now, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, for many, just because you finally have the chance to sleep at night, doesn’t mean that you will. You might just lay in bed, ready to rest, only to find your brain even more powered on than before. These are very common symptoms of adrenal fatigue or burnout.
Adrenal fatigue is very dangerous and left to it’s own devices can lead to serious autoimmune diseases. If you’re not waking up energized and rested, if you’re finding yourself craving caffeine or sweets come mid afternoon, you might be dealing with adrenal fatigue. And we at Eurospa want to help you by sharing some simple home remedies that will help you feel rested, boost your immune system and restart your energy levels.
Early to bed. This one may seem logical, but it’s true nonetheless. Make sure, if you’re dealing with extreme exhaustion, that you commit to a good 30 days of going to bed early. Sure you might miss out on late night activities but you’ll get your health and energy levels back. Isn’t that worth it?
Hydration. Adrenal fatigue causes dehydration. Think of your tired self as a wilted flower. Feed the flower and the flower will stop being wilted. Your brain needs adequate water to function, so give as asked.
Invigoration. Don’t just pinch yourself to wake up, use Eucalyptus oil. Just a few sprays of Eucalyptus oil into your shower will wake up not only your mind, but also your circulation and respiratory system, which will boost your immune system as well.
B Vitamins. B Vitamins are necessary for proper adrenal function. Diets that are higher in fat and lower in carbs can rob the body of it’s needed B vitamins. Get a high quality supplement if you think you might not be getting enough from your diet.
No Toxins. Reduce or eliminate refined sugars and toxins from the diet. Your body’s insulin levels and defense systems rise and fall dramatically when having to deal with added toxins. This includes alcohol and sweets. Take some time off. You won’t regret it.
Stress Less.  You might be surprised at how detrimental stress is to your health; especially your adrenals. Stress releases extra cortisol -the body’s stress hormone. Too much cortisol puts at dangerous risk for autoimmune disorders and will require even more time and extreme measures of rest in order to heal and reach homeostasis. If you know you have high stress, consider your options. Look for more ways to pause in your day and week and remind yourself of what’s important. Look for things to have gratitude about. Ask for help. Don’t put too much on your shoulders. Talk to your family and closest friends and let them know you need support in making changes.

At Eurospa, we desire to support your health in any way possible. Of course, we know that our Eucalyptus oil spray will not only rejuvenate you and boost your immune system, but it also adds a high amount of relaxation to your day and helps to ease cortisol release. Don’t let stress and exhaustion rule your health. Let Eurospa help.

Fast Natural Ways to Boost Nausea When the Flu Strikes

Fast Natural Ways to Boost Nausea When the Flu StrikesFlu season has officially begun and no flu shot promises your protection. So whatever you do to try and keep it at bay, if nausea hits, you know what’s coming. No one wants to feel sick and down, much less have nausea following them around all day.
Even if you never get a full blown flu, feeling nauseous can both limit your productivity or keep you from being able to do anything at all!
At Eurospa, we want to give you some natural ways to beat those nasty nauseous feelings and boost your immune system while you’re at it.
First of all, the best natural remedies for healing nausea and vomiting fast, usually involve essential oils. They are convenient and easy to use. And perfect for when you have an upset stomach, stomach flu or stomach ache.

Essential oils penetrate the skin and circulate throughout the body in a matter of minutes. In addition to absorbing them through the pores, they work just as well when inhaled and dispersed through the lungs. This is great news, because if you're suffering from stomach ailments or nausea, you likely can't handle taking medication orally anyway.

  1. The best essential oils for easing nausea are eucalyptus and mint. The best way to use them? Simply spritz both oils into the air around you. You can also really get fast and effective help, by spraying the oils directly into the steam of a shower. Just spray, get in, rest and breathe. Let the oils do their work. To make it even more convenient for you, we’ve created Eucamint. The Eucalyptus oil and mint combination that not only refreshes, but keeps you healthy (and kick the flu) as well.

  1. Another remedy? Try apple cider vinegar. Be sure to ask your local natural foods provider for organic, unfiltered and raw apple cider vinegar, (acv) as this is the most potent and effective. Add 1-2 TBSP of the acv to an 8 oz glass of water. Add honey or stevia to sweeten and make the taste more palatable. Drink this every hour or two and experience relief.

  1. Lastly, take activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is a binder, meaning that once taken internally, it acts as a magnet for toxins and quickly both absorbs and flushes them out of your system. Find activated charcoal at most natural health and food stores.

We at Eurospa have been providing the finest quality of eucalyptus oil products to both homes and spas alike, for over 30 years. This means that you, too, can have the same high quality of eucalyptus oil that the 5-star hotels use right in the comfort of your home.

If you're tired of using less than helpful products to feel better and are ready to experience true health and vitality, start with a powerful small step. Get a bottle of Eucalyptus oil shower spray today. Your whole body will thank you.

Winter Hack: Natural Ways to Keep Your Body Warm All Day Long likes that eternally cold feeling that leaves your fingers aching and toes numb. So it’s good to know that there are ways to keep warm during the winter without bringing an electric blanket along for the day. I can’t imagine that being very efficient but if you figure out how to do it, please share your tips!

Unless you spend your winters on an island, it’s likely that you’ll experience some degree of cold. Your job is to make sure your body feels warm. Why? Well when the body’s working hard to keep you warm, it’s too tired to protect you from viruses and germs. In other words, your body’s immune system needs to be protected so it can do it’s best to keep you well. And since we don’t want you getting sick all season long, it’s best to keep you warm.

Here are some life hack styled tips to keep you warm all winter long:

“Fire Tea” -  This one’s simple, delicious and comes with many benefits on top of keeping you warm. Just pour yourself a mug of hot (not boiling) water. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into it. Add honey or stevia to taste. Then add cayenne pepper. How much you add is up to you, but you do want to be able to taste it. The combination will not only boost your immune system but will also help you stay warm, thanks to the cayenne increasing circulation all over your body.
“Hot Socks” - Another easy one. Did you know that cayenne works on the skin too? Just grab your socks and carefully sprinkle it into the toe and foot part of your sock. The powdered pepper will be absorbed into your feet through your pores and keep your feet warm. Be warned, don’t put it in your gloves. You don’t want the pepper going from your fingers to your eyes. OUCH.

“Sweat it Out” Bring the heat in through your shower. Run a hot steamy shower and seal up the bathroom to keep in the heat. Then add a few sprays of Eucalyptus Shower Mist or Eucamint Shower Mist into your shower. The Eucalyptus will help boost circulation (keeping your muscles warm internally), cleanse your respiratory system and if you go with the Eucamint, the mint will leave you extra invigorated and boost your energy. More benefits here.

“Get Layered” Wear more layers. Yes, it’s that simple. Invest in a thin yet warm set of under layers to wear under your normal clothes. Then, lower the heat in your home. Keeping the heat to high adds too much contrast to your body temperature and stresses the immune system. Teach your body to acclimate rather that constantly be faced with shock.

There are simple ways to stay warm in the winter naturally and without a load of extra costs. Remember, helping your body stay warm helps your immune system to stay strong. At Eurospa, your health is our priority. Please contact us with any questions and interest!

Make the Most of Your Sauna Experience with These Helpful Tips!

Make the Most of Your Sauna Experience with These Helpful Tips! It’s becoming common knowledge that using a sauna or steam room on a regular basis is a benefit to your immune system, quality of health and life.  The many benefits range from relaxation and anti-aging to pain management, weight loss and cleansing! If you are looking for new ways to look and be more healthy, adding sauna treatments to your health or wellness routine at home is a great way to start.

At Eurospa, we specialize in supporting the immune system and total body health with with the use of Eucalyptus oils and Menthol crystals. It’s easy to add these powerful agents to your natural health routine. We’ll show you how later, but for now, want to let you know why they are so beneficial!

Make the most of your sauna experience and enjoy the following benefits!

Pain Management
Heat has an analgesic, or pain relieving, effect due to its ability create more effective blood flow. Painful conditions caused by inflammation such as arthritis and fibromyalgia can be temporarily managed through heat treatments like those found in both saunas and steam rooms. Massaging essential oils, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary or even wintergreen, in small amounts and diluted with coconut oil, on to the muscles before and after entering the heat will further your results even more! For managing pain, saunas may be preferable for people who are negatively affected by humidity as are some sufferers of acute rheumatoid arthritis.

Anti Aging
Due to the increased circulation of the blood, the contraction of the pores and the detoxification involved, saunas are great for restoring a youthful glow to the skin as well and activating collagen and elastin in the dermal layers. You will love the way your skin regains that rosy hue and hydrated glow.

One health advantage that can only be provided through the heat of saunas is the expectorant effect, when adding a menthol based essential oil to the mix, such as eucalyptus oil. These oils thin and open the mucous membranes in your body, including in your sinuses, throat and lungs. If you suffer chronic congestion or sinus infections, using eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary, can help loosen and clear the mucous from your nose, chest and throat.
Mind and Body Relaxation
We lead stressful lives, so the emotional and physical relaxation that stems from sauna use in irreplaceable. You will begin to add sauna use as part of your regular self care routine, as you notice a calmer response in your mind and body when dealing with everyday stress. Both wet and dry heat simulate sedative effects that generate feelings of calmness and relaxation, and some people who suffer emotional or mood disorder may find relief with regular trips to saunas or even steam rooms.

To increase the benefits of all the above, add menthol crystals or eucalyptus.

Just sprinkle a very small amount on your carpet or add to your oil on a burner or warmer. Always start with less than you think you’ll need. It doesn’t take much to infuse the entire room or sauna with the uplifting scent of menthol. You can also melt the crystals into a mineral oil to use as a bath salt.  Or allow the oil to cool and apply as a paste for sore muscles. When you use menthol crystals, you should start with just 1/4 teaspoon or even a single medium sized crystal, Eurospa menthol crystals are very concentrated. It is better to use too little than too much.

This one is so simple, you can even use it in the shower. Just turn on the water and let it get hot before stepping in. Now you spray a few shots of 100% pure eucalyptus oil right into the steam.  For the sauna, simply spray 2 or 3 sprays into the air or onto the rocks, and enjoy. The result is an explosion of invigoration that permeates the shower area and instantly energizes and relaxes your whole body. Breathe the powerful aroma into your lungs and feel it go to work cleaning and providing antibacterial action into your entire respiratory system.

As you can see, the heat of saunas and steam rooms can have added benefits when putting different essential oils into the mix. At Eurospa, we strive to create and distribute the highest quality eucalyptus products possible for home and spa. Your health is our priority. See how we can help you today!

The Natural Flu-Fighting Solutions that Keeps You Healthy all Winter Long

The Natural Flu-Fighting Solutions that Keeps You Healthy all Winter Long
You’re too busy to get the flu, but the latest flu shots don’t seem to be getting the preventative job done! How will you stay healthy and strong, not miss work and keep the kids healthy? You need a solution that you can depend on, that’s strong, effective and safe. That’s what we at Eurospa want to share with you.
Your health deserves options. And you definitely deserve to go to work healthy and at your best.
The best way to heal is to prevent illness before it starts. Get your immune system strong and keep it clean. How do you do that?
Start with steam
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 Immune Boosting 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 oregano oil. 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.
