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.

Strategies for Better Sleep: Practical Tips for Nightly Renewal

Achieving good sleep is within reach, and incorporating a few key practices can make a significant difference:

Conclusion: Embrace the Night

Sleep is not merely a time filler or an obligatory part of the daily routine; it is a fundamental aspect of our well-being and overall health. 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.

Welcome to National Handwashing Awareness Week, where a simple act holds the key to unlocking a world of wellness! From December 5th to 11th, we celebrate the power of clean hands in preventing illness and fostering a healthier community.

Regular handwashing is a potent shield against the flu, colds, and other contagious infections. By eliminating germs on our hands, we not only protect ourselves but also contribute to community well-being.

2. Breaking the Chain of Infection: Hand hygiene acts as a disruptor in the chain of infection, preventing the spread of harmful microorganisms. As we wash away bacteria and viruses, we play a crucial role in halting the transmission cycle, fostering a healthier environment for everyone.

3. Food Safety: For those passionate about creating culinary delights, handwashing is a fundamental step in ensuring food safety. Whether at home or in a professional kitchen, keeping hands clean before cooking or consuming meals prevents the transfer of contaminants and preserves the integrity of our culinary creations.

4. Daily Defense: Our hands are the bridge between our personal spaces and the world at large. Making handwashing a daily ritual, whether at home, at work, or on the go, establishes a formidable defense against unseen threats. Clean hands become our trusted armor, shielding us from potential health hazards.

5. Cultivating Healthy Habits: Beyond personal wellness, handwashing is a habit worth passing down through generations. Educating our children and loved ones about the significance of hand hygiene ensures a legacy of health-conscious individuals. By instilling this habit early on, we contribute to a future where clean hands are second nature.

Boooo…the facts about breast cancer are not fun. The topic hits close to home for many of us. When we stop for a moment and look around, we see our loved ones—our best friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, daughters, and even our daughters’ friends. The statistics are sobering, with one in eight women in the United States projected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is personal, and it’s time to get personal about it.

During October, a month dedicated to breast cancer awareness, we encourage you to get to know your “Boo Bees.” Knowing the Booo not-so-fun facts about Breast Cancer can help us Bee active in taking preventative steps

One of the first steps towards breast cancer prevention is being informed about what you put both into and onto your body. While we all understand the importance of maintaining a healthy diet for overall well-being, it’s equally crucial to scrutinize the products we apply to our skin daily. One simple switch you can make this month is to eliminate harmful ingredients from your daily deodorant routine.

Numerous studies have revealed that certain ingredients like aluminum, parabens, and sulfates may pose risks in the deodorants and antiperspirants we use.

Aluminum, commonly found in many popular deodorants and antiperspirants, works by clogging pores to block sweat, along with the associated odor. However, this unnatural process interrupts the body’s natural ability to sweat and detoxify.

Parabens, included as preservatives, are effective at preventing fungal and bacterial growth in products. Unfortunately, they’ve also been known to mimic estrogen in the body’s cells.

Sulfates, salts used to remove oil and dirt while reducing moisture, can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions due to their drying properties.

The concerning aspect of these ingredients is that they can be absorbed through the skin, potentially increasing health risks, including kidney and liver issues, Alzheimer’s disease, and breast cancer in both men and women.

Jordan Essentials’ deodorants offer a solution by freeing you from these toxins and allowing your body to function as it should—without the unpleasant odor. Our deodorants utilize plant-based science to effectively control odor, minimize wetness, leave your skin smelling clean and fresh, and apply smoothly.

When transitioning to a natural deodorant, you may need to detoxify your underarms for the best results:

  1. Start by cleansing your underarms with our Activated Charcoal Bar Soap, which helps draw out impurities.
  2. Fight odor-causing bacteria by spritzing your pits with our powerful essential oil blend, “Spritz Your Pits.” Allow it to dry thoroughly.
  3. Apply just a few swipes of Jordan Essentials’ Deodorant in your preferred scent. A little goes a long way.

Breast cancer awareness starts with knowing your “Boo Bees” and taking proactive steps to reduce your risk. By choosing natural, toxin-free products like Jordan Essentials’ deodorants, you’re not only protecting yourself but also supporting your body’s natural functions. Empower yourself and your loved ones with knowledge and action this October and beyond.

During the month of October, Jordan Essentials is committed to doing our part. A portion of the proceeds from every purchase of our Black Raspberry Vanilla Deodorant will be used to gift pampering products to women in our Jordan Community who are battling all types of cancer now or who underwent treatment in 2023.

 Help us make in a difference this October.

When it comes to indulging in some nourishing self-care, nothing beats a soothing soak in the tub with Dead Sea salts! They have a multitude of skincare benefits and are also incredibly effective in relieving stress and tired muscles. We’re sharing our favorite things about this wonderful nutrient-rich salt, and why you need to use it in your own self-care routine.

What Are Dead Sea Salts?

Dead Sea salts actually do come from the Dead Sea, like their name suggests. These magnificent salts contain 21 minerals not found anywhere else in the world—minerals like magnesium, calcium, chloride, potassium, sodium, and bromide. These powerful minerals are best known for relieving aching, tired muscles, arthritis, and even symptoms of fibromyalgia.

While you can travel all the way to the Dead Sea to soak in its goodness, you can use Jordan Essentials’ Dead Sea Salts to enjoy the benefits right in the comfort of your own tub.

Jordan Essentials Dead Sea Salts
At Jordan Essentials we take our Dead Sea salts seriously! We “power up” the soothing effects of our Dead Sea Salts by adding extra magnesium and stress-relieving essential oils, like peppermint or lavender. Our proprietary formula is a custom blend of Dead Sea salts you won’t find anywhere else! The natural minerals and added magnesium are most beneficial and produce a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on the body.

Why We Use Dead Sea Salts
One of the most common reasons for using Dead Sea salts is to heal tired, achy, and sore muscles. Even if your muscles aren’t sore, you can benefit from soaking in Dead Sea salts for their relaxing effect on the body and the mind. But what many people don’t know is that they are also beneficial in improving your skin too!

Dead Sea salts detoxify the skin and remove impurities, giving the skin a fresh, younger appearance. Packed with minerals – they will work together to enhance skin hydration, removing flakiness and the ashy, dry appearance we so often get after a day out in the sun and sand. Minerals like calcium, potassium, and zinc especially help relieve itchy skin.

4 Ways To Use Dead Sea Salts

Here are 4 ways to use Dead Sea salts at home and reap the benefits of these much-needed minerals!

    1. Take a “spa” bath: Add about a ¼ cup of Dead Sea salts to your warm bath. If you prefer to create your own essential oil blend, then use our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts. Just add a drop of two to of your favorite oil your salts and mix before adding them to your bath. Or try one of our therapeutic essential oil blends, like Peppermint, Lavender & Eucalyptus, or Oatmeal Milk and Honey.
    2. Make your own foot soak: Add 2-3 tablespoons of our Dead Sea salts to a foot bath of warm water and allow the salts to_C2A0529.jpg completely dissolve. Get comfortable and let your feet soak in the water to heal. The minerals will be absorbed into your skin, treating both your tired feet and body by replenishing it of depleted minerals.
    3. Use to soothe dandruff: Yep. Dead Sea salts can even diminish dandruff! Simply combine 1 tablespoon of our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp and wait 5 minutes. Then rinse well and wash your hair with Moisturizing Shampoo. The mineral components give the scalp a deep cleanse, combating the bacteria and yeasts that cause flaky skin and dandruff. The salt acts as a natural exfoliator, scrubbing away dead skin cells and buildup. Make sure you finish with our Daily Conditioner to seal in the hydration!
    4. Heal your nails and cuticles: Soak your nails in a mixture of 1 teaspoon Dead Sea salts, 1 drop lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons water, and ½ teaspoon olive oil. Combine the ingredients well and soak your nails for 5 minutes. Then scrub them with a nail brush and rinse well.

There are so many wonderful benefits to using Dead Sea salts for your skin, your body, and your mental health. It’s time to take a trip to the Dead Sea (aka your bathtub!) to reap all the benefits of our favorite self-care ritual!

Ahh summer! Sunny skies, road trips, swimming, and … sneezing? If you have seasonal allergies, this might be your reality. With trees, grasses, and flowers blooming and spreading pollen everywhere – allergy symptoms can take a toll on your summer fun.

Here are 8 tips to help keep your allergy symptoms at bay:

Don’t touch your face: We should all be in the habit of keeping our hands away from our faces anyway – but this applies for allergies too! This can help prevent pollen from coming in contact with your eyes and nasal passages, and making your symptoms worse.

Incorporate Essential Oils: Our Allergy Blend Essential Oil Spray is a wonderful blend of Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint Essential Oils. Combined with a soothing witch hazel base, this spray can lessen symptoms such as itchy, puffy eyes while also opening airways and helping you breathe with more ease.

No mixing, no measuring – perfectly blended and safe to spritz directly onto your body (ages 2+), in the air, and even on your bed linens for a more comfortable night’s sleep. You can also use this spray on clothing, towels, rugs, inside your car – the possibilities are endless. Safe to be used in homes with pets, too!

Stay clean: Allergens can stick to hair, skin, and clothes. Be sure to leave shoes at the door, rinse your hair and body, and toss clothes into the laundry basket after spending time outside. Washing bed sheets frequently (and using that wonderful Allergy Spray!) will ensure they are allergen-free for bedtime.

Plan yard work strategically: Warm, sunny weather means time spent outside working in our gardens or mowing the lawn. If you suffer from allergies, you may have to limit your gardening when pollen counts are high. Avoid lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores that stir up allergens. Pollen tends to be highest from 5am-10am and at dusk – so try to plan your yard work in between those times.

Stay inside: High pollen counts can put a damper on outdoor parties and activities. On particularly warm and windy days, pollen is spreading and sticking to everything. If you do spend time outside, wear sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat to prevent allergens from getting into your eyes. Watch the weather and plan to spend time outside after rain showers. Rain helps to settle any allergens in the air. 

Vacuum before leaving the house: Vacuuming stirs up dust and allergens increasing the likelihood of them triggering symptoms. Plan to vacuum your home before stepping out to allow dust and allergens to settle. You can also spray Green & Clean in rooms you have vacuumed to help the dust settle quicker.

Keep indoor air clean: Using an air purifier will help remove contaminants from the air, and in turn, should decrease your exposure to pollen and dust. Jordan Essentials Green & Clean can also be added to air purifiers for added moisture in the air.

Keep pets clean: Summer is fun for everyone, pets included! But, during peak allergy season they can become a walking allergen themselves. Try to keep your pets off of furniture and out of the bedroom. Make sure they get washed more frequently to keep the pollen from hitching a ride inside with them. Our Pet Shampoo smells great and gets pets super clean! Spray with our Pet Spritzer for a shiny coat and resfreshing scent of bamboo and mint. 

There you have it, eight ways to make it through allergy season without itchy eyes and a scratchy throat. Of course, if symptoms become more severe, seek professional medical advice.
