As seen in Woman’s World Magazine! More than 50% of women notice their hair thinning as the years march on. My go-to fix for skinny locks: Mix 5 drops of rosemary essential oil into your shampoo and spend 3 minutes massaging it into your scalp, then rinse out. Nutrients in the herb’s woodsy-smelling essential oil nourish damaged follicles, while the massage increases blood circulation to support new growth. One study found that this spa-inspired secret is as effective as the FDA-approved hair-loss drug minoxidil!
An easy way to ward off fatigue that tends to set in during the fall and winter: Season your favorite savory dishes with seaweed flakes instead of table salt. This low-sodium pick provides salty flavor and plenty of thyroid-nourishing iodine, which helps increase energy within 30 minutes. Another plus: It boasts appetite-suppressing soluble fiber to thwart cravings, and it’s terrific on poultry, vegetables, salad or even popcorn. Tip: To preserve its beneficial enzymes, add the flakes after cooking. One to try: Maine Coast Dulse Granules (SeaVeg.com).
