Spring has sprung (well kinda!) so I thought there is no better time than now to start spring cleaning! Spring isn’t just about tidying your house and personal items but also about cleansing and cleaning your body… do I hear detox!?!?
Ginger is a herb that I only recently started getting into. As a child my mum didn’t cook with ginger a lot and it wasn’t until I started studying naturopathic medicine and living on my own that I thought I would give ginger a try… and boy oh boy and I sure glad I did!!!!
With January coming to an end all those “New Year” resolutions become a lot harder to stay compliant with. I encourage you to not give up all hope!!! I have never been a huge fan of New Year resolutions, as they are always impractical and resolutions tend to be about going to the gym or getting fit. Resolutions are outdated. Intentions are the new resolutions!!!
With all the peppermint treats I consumed this past holiday season I couldn’t help but make peppermint the first herb in this new monthly series I decided to start called herbs of the month! Herb of the month is going to feature one new herb each month that shares all the benefits and uses of that herbs! I hope you guys will already know some and I really hope I can teach you guys some new ones too!!!! Sooooo how about we all put a little pep(permint) back into our step and start with one of my all-time favorite herbs….. PEPPERMINT!
