What is Ylang Ylang?


Have you ever smelled a Ylang Ylang flower, or Ylang Ylang Essential Oil? I recently experienced it for the first time and I love it. They say that many people consider it to be poor man’s Jasmine because it smells similar but it costs a lot less. I’ve used it on my skin, in my bath water and I’ve put my nose to it to smell it. It has a way of uplifting your mood and making you feel happier. Overall, it’s just a fun and happy oil to smell.

Chicken, Cabbage, Carrots and Cilantro Dinner


This is a delicious dinner I made for myself a few days ago. Here is the recipe:

1. Cook chicken, cabbage and carrots in a saute pan with olive oil.
2. When food is about half cooked add 2-5 drops of cilantro essential oil. The amount will depend upon how much food you are cooking and upon your own tastes.
3. Wait until the food is almost cooked and then sprinkle lemon pepper on it and stir.
4. Finnish cooking.
5. Prepare brown rice in rice cooker or re-heat brown rice that is already cooked.
6. Serve chicken, cabbage and carrots mixture with brown rice.


Plentils Allergen Free Chips


I recently tried the new Enjoy Life Foods Plentils. They come in 4 different flavors. While I enjoyed them all, my favorite is the Enjoy Life Plentils, Margherita Pizza, 4-Ounce These ones have a pizza flavor to them and are really good. The Enjoy Life Plentils, Dill and Sour Cream, 4-Ounce
are very similar to a sour cream and chives lays potato chip. The Enjoy Life Plentils, Garlic and Parmesean, 4-Ounce
ones have an interesting and different flavor however, they are still quite good, while the Enjoy Life Plentils, Light Sea Salt, 4-Ounce
have the taste of your regular standard potato chip. These plentils are completely allergen and chemical free. They have no dyes, sugars, gluten, nuts, or dairy in them. They are made from lentils and potato starch. They taste similar to a potato chip although not exactly the same but are very good and I will certainly be eating these again. They also are not too salty and the big bag is enough for at least 2 if not 3 or 4 snacks.

Disclaimer: The company Enjoy Life sent me 1 of each flavor for free as a taste test.
