Lemon Essential Oil – Learn with Nancy!

🍋 It’s Lemon Essential Oil Class Day with Nancy Bogart, CEO & Founder and NAHA Certified Aromatherapist

If you know me, you know I absolutely LOVE lemon! 🍋✨ Who else is a lemon fan?

Let’s say it together: “Uplift my soul!” ☀️ Lemon Essential Oil, or Citrus Limon, comes from the Rutaceae family and is extracted from the peel of lemon. Most of our lemons come from Italy and the USA. This beautiful, vibrant fruit isn’t just delicious—it’s also super beneficial!

For centuries, people have used lemon for everything from cleaning to immune support. It’s a natural, chemical-free way to clean your home, which is why we just launched our new Healthy Home line featuring Lemon Essential Oil! 

The fresh scent not only cleans the air but also boosts your mood. Lemon is also a fantastic respiratory buddy—it refreshes and helps support your nervous and immune systems.

We add it to our Resistant Blend, and I love spritzing my underarms with it every morning. It’s a natural deodorant and an immune booster, too! 💪

✨Lemon Diffuser Blends are also a delight! Try lemon 🍋 with lavender 🪻 for a perfect mix of fruity and floral. We also have a pre-blended mix of lemon and peppermint, which I use in my kitchen with wooden beads by the sink for a fresh, clean scent every day. 🏡

But here’s the deal—can you drink lemon essential oil?

The answer: No! Use the real fruit! 🍋🍹 Use lemon juice in teas, lemonade, and as a digestion aid. It flushes out excess water weight and supports digestion. Remember, essential oil comes from the cold-pressed rind, while lemon juice comes from the fruit. Keep a bowl of lemons on your counter, slice one open, and squeeze! 🍋

So, let’s save that precious essential oil for aromatherapy and topical benefits while we enjoy the fresh, zesty goodness of real lemon juice! 💛🍹. ~Nancy

Sleep is often undervalued in today’s fast-paced world, seen as a luxury rather than a necessity. However, sleep is a critical component of our well-being and overall wellness. Far from being a passive activity, sleep is a dynamic process that affects almost every tissue and system in the body—from the brain to the heart and the immune system to metabolism.

The Essential Role of SleepWhy Sleep Matters: More Than Just Rest

  1. Cognitive Function and Mental Health: Sleep plays a pivotal role in cognitive processes. It helps consolidate memories, meaning that experiences and information learned during the day are processed and stored overnight. Did you know that sleep deprivation is linked with an increased risk of developing mood disorders such as depression and anxiety?

  2. Physical Health: Sleep’s benefits extend well beyond the brain. While we sleep, our bodies are busy repairing muscles, synthesizing proteins, and releasing growth hormones, which are all vital for muscle repair and growth. 

  3. Immune Function: During sleep, your immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. Certain cytokines need to increase when you have an infection or inflammation or are under stress. Sleep deprivation may decrease the production of these protective cytokines. 

The Consequences of Sleep Deprivation: A Wake-Up Call

Ignoring the need for sleep can have severe consequences. Short-term impacts include impaired judgment, mood swings, and reduced coordination. Long-term effects are even more concerning and include chronic health issues such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Not to mention, sleep deprivation can severely impair immune function over time, making it harder for your body to fight off infections.

Embracing good sleep practices is not just about preventing health issues—it’s about enhancing our quality of life. So tonight, as you prepare for bed, remember that you’re not just “checking out” for the day, but are actively engaging in something that rejuvenates, heals, and restores your body and mind. Sleep well, live well.

Purifying Charcoal Mask

The Purifying Charcoal Mask is an essential for your beauty cabinet. If you’re not using activated charcoal in your skincare routine yet, then you’ll definitely want to learn about the many benefits of charcoal.

Charcoal removes impurities from the skin and leaves behind a healthier, clearer complexion. Using a charcoal face mask will provide you with brighter skin tone.

Due to its ability to remove bacteria and dead skin cells from the skin, charcoal is able to heal acne. The antibacterial properties of charcoal allow it to lift bacteria from the pores, purify the pores, and improve overall skin tone. Charcoal rids your skin of acne-causing elements like excess sebum, clogged pores, and dead skin buildup.

Got oily skin? Charcoal can even mattify oily skin by balancing the oil secretion on the skin. If you have oily, blemish-prone skin, a charcoal face mask is especially beneficial.

Jordan Essentials face masks are made from the highest quality and natural ingredients, so you know you are pampering your skin the healthy way.
