I love October. Do you too? It brings on cooler weather, bonfires, fireplace fires, leaves, decorating, and Halloween! I love the changing of the seasons. (Even though I am a summer girl through and through.) I think I like getting out my fall decorations so I have something new to look at. You too?
But, THIS fall is going to look a lot different isn’t it? With cooler temps and kids going back to school….cold and flu season is definitely upon us. If that wasn’t enough…it all comes on top of Covid. Yikes!
How are we going to know if we have a cold, the flu or whether or not we have Covid? Every time I get a sniffle or I’m tired or I have a sore throat I tell my husband I have ‘THE Covid.' He laughs…and then I do nothing about it. Because it goes away (usually after a good night's sleep)
I really have no idea. But, I do know that we need to take care of ourselves so that our immune systems are strong. We need to minimize the risk of getting sick.
I have been getting tons of emails about ‘Immune System Boosters' and ‘What you can do to boost your immune system.' Some of those ideas are great…some are just junk and it frustrates me that we are being fed such false information
One of the biggest things that you can do to boost your immune system is to stop using all of the chemicals. Yes, you do want to sanitize those counters… but why use chemicals when soap and water does an incredible job. PLUS soap and water will not harm your lungs or the environment.
I got to thinking…why are we using chemicals to clean….well anything? I think it is part of the herd mentality – we are told to use them and we do – without any thought to whether or not it is right or it is wrong.
You breathe in all of those harmful vapors, which can compromise your lungs – the LAST thing you want to do with Covid hanging around. Take care of your lungs. How?
I would like to offer a few alternatives to you for your own cleaning, well-being, body, and breathing… Everything you need to maintain a strong immune system. Or, to help you build up a really strong one.
How about your skin? What you put on your skin is a big deal. It really is. Did you know that skin is your largest organ. Are you washing your body with chemicals and ingredients that you can’t recognize or pronounce?
Are you slathering your body with creams that can cause cancer? What about your face? Are those anti aging creams really helping or are they just adding to the aging process?
Please take a minute and read ‘Why I love Primally Pure Products So Much’. I love love love Primally Pure Products – ALL of them. So many of you have started using them too…and let me know that the oils are just as great as I said they are. I am not kidding – I do love these oils. The above article shows you which products I use, which are my faves and why.
It includes hand soap, room spray and essential oil. (They are re-stocked after selling out in 24 hours.) I am waiting for mine to arrive.
Inspired by the fragrant aroma of Autumn – fresh citrus spiced with hint of cacao, sweet honey, golden hay and apple blossoms. Yum! I am so excited!
The Summer Home Collection was amazing. I diffused oil every morning. The soap is in my powder bath…and who doesn’t love a room spray. Right? Something has to rid the house of the smell of bacon.

Stop eating all the stuff in bags that has more chemicals than a Nuclear Power Plant. If you are a podcast person, these podcasts from Drs Farmacy will blow your mind. Food companies add sugar AND addicting additives to everything. And you just thought it was your lack of will power right? Listen to: ‘The Real Reason for America's Disease Epidemic.‘ Or this one: ‘How Our Food System Harms Humans on the Planet.‘
I am not trying to scare you or ask you to go broke buying all organic and natural. Most of us can't afford to do that. What can you do? Make healthier food choices.
An apple instead of Doritos. The old saying ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away' is definitely a keeper. (I add all natural peanut butter or almond butter (my fave is Justin's) to my apple – so it tastes like a snack and not like a necessity.) Do you feel that way too?
You can beat this! You CAN stay healthy and combat all the viruses that are around you. And if you do get sick, you might not get as sick as some. And you might recover faster.
I am raising my glass of water to you and saying ‘Here's to a healthier you.' (Clink)
