5 FAVORITES

 One of the supplements that I've been really good at taking daily for years is B-12. I thought that since one of its main purposes is to protect the nervous system (short term memory, mood, etc.) it would be quite important one. Also, if your energy levels are low, B-12 deficiency might be to blame. Why spray though? When you swallow a pill, it must go through your entire gastrointestinal tract: the stomach (with acid and bile), the intestines (where most absorption takes place) and then off to the liver, for some more filtering. And THEN it's delivered to where it's needed. Quite a long way. Going under the tongue bypasses this entire route, and delivers the medication right to the bloodstream. Therefore absorbability is improved greatly.
 I haven't really given any attention to my hair in years (my last professional hair cut was... maybe 8 years ago? Last color treatment 5 years ago?). So I'm at least trying to feed it with right things, internally and externally. I love Dr. Hauschka calling their products "Holistic Hair Care". I use the Neem Hair Oil as a mask before washing my hair and Neem Hair Lotion after washing. 
 The season of cold wind is here and this one oil has taken care of my skin for the past year and is all I need. The small bottle of Argan Magic lasts forever because all I need is is couple of drops.
 Still my main cooking oil and body moisturizer. I recently went to an Ayurvedic workshop and the instructor confirmed my body type to be mainly Vata which explains my cravings for warmth (warm foods, warm clothes, warm beverages). She also reminded me that coconut oil is extremely cooling substance and possibly not the best choice for me due to this fact. She recommended trying sesame seed oil to add to foods and use as a body moisturizer and see if it makes me feel warmer. Test your body type here and get more info on Ayurveda.
I started writing a few lines every single day to this 5 year journal since January 1, 2014 and it has become my way of winding down while sitting in bed getting ready to sleep. It's a fun way to make inventory of my day, let go and a way to keep track on how I evolve in life and how my life evolves around me. I just read few updates from the beginning of this year and was surprised of all that happened then. I love keeping record of things through journaling and photos.
