Great news: You can enjoy an autumn stroll in the woods without worrying about Lyme disease. Ticks love to hide in fallen leaves, and many carry Lyme disease. The condition can cause severe joint pain and may even increase Alzheimer’s risk. Luckily, using a safe, non-toxic insect repellent like lemongrass oil can protect you from the pests and stop trouble before it even starts. Just mix 12 drops of lemongrass oil with 1 tsp. of sweet almond oil or jojoba oil. Apply liberally to the skin, especially the lower legs and ankles, before going outside.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
