Stress...what's stress?? I'm NOT STRESSED!!!

Our health depends on our over-all well being, NOT just our diet and exercise routines! When I am stressed, my trigeminal neuralgia kicks into HIGH gear and doesn’t let up for a while ~ I recently had to have my gallbladder removed (like so many others I have heard of since my diagnosis and surgery)… Correlation?? Definitely! Does any of this look familiar to you??

Allergies bothering you?? Solution: CLEAN YOUR MATTRESS

Even if you change your sheets and pillowcases weekly, chances are you haven’t thought about how to clean a mattress lately. Dust and dust mites accumulate in our bedding very quickly and can cause anywhere from mild to severe allergic reactions. Getting rid of dust mites is an ongoing battle and one effective way to fight them is to keep your mattress and bedding clean. Below are simple steps to help you clean your mattress on a regular basis.

Here’s how:
1.Pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a Mason jar & drop in 4 drops of lavender ESSENTIAL OIL.
2.Put on lid & shake jar. Using a kitchen strainer, sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress & let it sit for an hour or more.
3.Thoroughly vacuum the mattress.

Bye, bye dust mites, & other nasty things. The baking soda helps draw up any moisture & deep dirtiness. It deodorizes & leaves the mattress smelling fresh & clean ADDED BONUS: Lavender helps to promote a restful and peaceful sleep! YEAH! 🙂
