Warming Up For Fall


Lavender is one of the most adaptable essential oils for creating aromatherapy blends or fragrances. It adapts well to rich floral oils like rose otto or strong herbaceous oils like camphoraceous rosemary. The aromatherapy benefits of lavender are equally adaptable. The addition of lavender can make a rich, sedative, floral blend more refreshing and uplifting, and it can make an invigorating, herbaceous blend more soothing.

The Health Benefits of Krill Oil

It is the 21st century and it seems that many people have become health conscience. People look for vitamins to help with joint pain or to help stop memory loss. Others find the latest diet to ensure they look great and have better health. It is for this reason that many look into the Omega-3s fatty acids that have many health benefits. Most often people choose to take a supplement called Krill oil, which is a type of shrimp-like animal many whales eat. In fact, “Krill” is the Norwegian word for “whale food.”

Krill oil is most often put into a capsule that can be taken as a supplement.  Most people choose to take the Krill oil supplements because it is the most concentrated with Omega-3s. Also many people choose to take a supplement because they are unable or unwilling to eat enough fish, which is a natural source of Omega-3s.

Often times doctors will recommend that people take Krill oil when they are at risk of a stroke, blood clots, high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, and even painful menstrual cycles. Scientists have proven that Krill oil can help fight these diseases and ailments.

The benefits of Omega-3s have been told for many years. Many people choose to take it for joint pain and to help prevent memory loss as well as help treat some of the ailments and diseases listed above. Krill oil has been known to decrease the swelling some people experience and in some cases has helped lower blood pressure. Also many choose to take krill oil to help with brain function and help prevent memory loss. As human beings age they tend to lose their memory and not be as mentally quick as they once were. The Omega-3s in the Krill oil supplements can help fight this memory loss.

Although Krill oil is recommended to help fight the ailments and diseases above it is not the only medication or supplement you will need. You should always listen to your doctor to ensure you are being treated adequately and accurately. Many doctors will suggest you take the krill oil on a daily basis, but also prescribe medication. If you are prescribed medication for any reason you should take the medication and not just the supplement. Also you need to ensure that you tell your doctor you are taking krill oil as it can interact with different medications.
