Tuesday Tip: Feeling Stuffed? Essentials Oils can help!

Last week we had Thanksgiving with my Parents and it was just the 4 of us, but still walked (or should I say waddled) away with that stuffed feeling.   We shared memories about when I was a child and we would drive all the way to Grandma's house,  have dinner,  then leave to go to my other Grandma's house for Thanksgiving dinner with my other Grandma.   I always left feeling like the stuffed Turkey.   Then years later . . it was early Thanksgiving Dinner with my Parents and late Thanksgiving Dinner with David's Parents,  still that feeling of being a stuffed turkey. 

Holidays with the family has always been very important part of my life,  however I have to say that eating one Thanksgiving Dinner is about all that I can handle at this point in my life. 

It's now December  with Networking,  Holiday Parties and Get together with friends and it is equivalent to a month of over eating.  So here's a little trick with Essential Oils  that could be of help.


Tuesday Tip:   Well if you've overeaten and feeling stuffed,  peppermint can help you control the discomfort by placing a few drops on your abdomen and covering it with a warm wash cloth.

Great idea! I use peppermint oil on my temples when I have a headache. I will have to try this out too!
