Basic Introduction To CBD And Hemp Health

A few years ago, I was looking for relief for our situation. My son has Autism and there are times when he gets overwhelmed, stressed, and could have a meltdown. To help calm him down, I started looking into CBD products. First, we tried CBD gummies and tinctures. However, I didn’t see any difference at all. I gave up. However, years later, I was desperate. We’re excited to share a basic introduction to CBD and hemp health!

The One Home Scent That Gets Me Ready For Fall And Winter —

One of the most enduring childhood memories that I have is of my grandparents’ cabin in the mountains of Montana. It is a small home they built up a winding mountain road in a clearing surrounded by many types of trees, including fir trees. They had neighbors, none close enough to be seen from their home but near enough to be friends with them.

I remember that I would walk into the trees surrounding their cabin and get lost, figuratively, completely enchanted with the sound of the crackling of dry fir tree needles on the forest floor crunching under my footsteps, sharp-eyed for downed trees to climb over or scramble under and for pinecones to collect, all the while invigorated by the fresh clean fir tree scent that just makes one feel more alive and connected to the earth.

I like forest-related scents any time of year, but I especially seek them out as fall and winter descend over the land because the smell invokes cozy cold evenings in front of a fire with a snuggly blanket and a warm drink and it starts to get me in the mood for the cold weather holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. It makes otherwise icky cold weather much more lovely and endurable. Once the holidays are over, I like to curl up on my couch with a hot cup of cappuccino and await the new year with optimism and hope.

Candles, wax melts, scented air fresheners — they all have a place in my home. It’s a simple, affordable form of personal expression that not only makes my home smell good, it’s a great way to inspire me to write, or craft, or clean. It just makes life very enjoyable.

First of all, I should mention that Chandler Candles are gorgeous. They come in simple glass jars which are shipped in sturdy cardboard sleeves with tin lids to protect them from breakage. The second you pop open that packaging the scent envelopes you right away, before you even light the candle. 

The candles are made with all-natural soy wax with quality fragrances, and are hand-poured in small batches to maintain the high quality with which a great candle deserves to be crafted.

I am very much enjoying their Balsam Fir scented candle. It takes my right back to my Gramma and Grampa’s cabin in the mountains, every time! In addition to several sizes of candles they offer soaps and lotions as well as reed diffusers and hand sanitizer. And let me tell you about the hand sanitizer. I’m in love with this one … it’s Lavender & Lime scented. I know, lavender and lime aren’t scents that I might think of pairing. But, it works!

I have been using it and the lime scent is a bit low-key but definitely there. It’s the lavender that I notice the most and it lasts for a long time. I mean, I’ve caught a whiff of the lavender more than 30 minutes after applying it to my hands. I love that!

I recently decided to do a little writing work outdoors at the picnic table near the coop where my chickens spend their days pecking the ground and being extra cute and funny. I took along my Chandler Balsam Fir candles (since I am surrounded by wooded areas, and some treats for my hens to enjoy. They just go crazy for their treats! LOL

A treat for me, a treat for my chickens!

There are so many aromatic blends available that I think anyone might be hard pressed to NOT be able to find one that they would like. I personally would love to try the Asian Pear Blossom, Italian Bergamot, and Pumpkin Chai Tea candles next.

My adult daughter just had a birthday and loves candles just as much as I do. I gave her one of the Balsam & Fir candles as part of her birthday celebration. It is easily one of her favorite gifts, I think. I love that something so simple makes us so happy!

These are definitely on my short list for holiday gifts for my daughter and my mom, too. It can be hard to choose a candle scent for other people, so if you aren’t sure which one to gift you can purchase a gift card from the company to gift to coworkers, friends, and family.  Use coupon code HOLIDAY20 to receive 20% off orders till Dec 31.

Essential Oil Infused Wellness

Essential Oil Infused Wellness - MIG Living Ritual Oil and Cuticle Oil
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Essential Oil Infused Wellness-Also I should mention that MIG Living products are toxin-free, made with natural ingredients and without animal testing, and are made in the USA with ingredients sourced directly from farms versus commercial distributers. These are all important things I look for when shopping for products to use. 

Scent is something that I consider not only as a bonus but as an essential element in selecting products in my home. Items that smell great increase my personal feeling of well-being and make my home space feel more alive and productive.

I am especially appreciative of a product that provides a lingering scent. There’s nothing worse than buying something to use in your home and having the scent peter out after only a few minutes. Seems like such a waste of time and effort to me. 

Essential Oil Infused Wellness - MIG Living Ritual Oil and Cuticle Oil

MIG Living is a company that is focused on personal health through natural beauty and wellness products. Today I will be sharing two MIG Living products that I recently used and what I thought of them.

The first is MIG’s Ritual Oil for Activation – Bloom. This is a roll-on product that includes Apricot Kernel Oil, Passion Flower, and other ingredients that you can apply to pulse points and wrists. They recommend applying the product first thing in the morning and then placing your palms over your face, closing your eyes, and inhaling deeply.

Mornings can be hectic and it sometimes can seem like there is never enough time to do all the things that are necessary. But, how your morning goes oftentimes sets the tone and pace for the entire day. Taking even 10 seconds to do something for yourself can seem like a big ask. I get it. Been there, done that, hate it every rushed morning. But, it’s so worth it. I’ve been doing it for a few weeks now and it really does make a big difference in how my day progresses.

I would suggest keeping this product on your nightstand. When that dratted alarm goes off in the morning making you instantly hate the day to come for interrupting your blissful sleep, just grab it and roll on a little bit of the scent.

Inhale deeply as you drift between sleep and the full wakefulness that your snoozed alarm will bring when it goes off again. Let the beauty and luxury of that smell help you transition from the warm cocoon of your bed to the inevitability of having to get up and start your day. It makes the whole process so much more smooth and even, if I may be so bold as to say, enjoyable!

What I like best about it is that the scent lingers with you. I catch a whiff of it often throughout the morning and early afternoon and it always gives my spirits a lift. It’s also great that it comes in a conveniently sized bottle that will easily fit into a purse or computer bag, the pocket of your pants or jacket, or in the cup holder of your vehicle. Wherever you find yourself needing a little boost, stash a bottle there. You will not regret it!!!

The second MIG product I have been using is their Cuticle Serum. I wash my hands … a lot. And that has been true for many years, not only during the current public health crisis we are all facing. I do a lot in a day between feeding and caring for our animals, taking care of children, cleaning our home, and preparing and serving meals.

I’ve always been conscious of making sure to approach new tasks with clean hands to prevent spreading germs around. I will even stop to clean my hand during a task (especially meal prep) to prevent the risk of someone getting sick due to my carelessness. I’m not neurotic about it, it’s just something I do almost unconsciously.

So, that being said, my cuticles are often pretty trashed from all the hand washing and having dry skin. Cuticle oil is pretty essential for me. I like that MIG’s Cuticle Oil doesn’t have a scent and that it absorbs well while providing long-lasting moisturization. It helps keep my cuticles healthy and hydrated without competing with the scent of the Ritual Oil for Activation that I apply to my wrists each day.

Also important is value. The products that I purchase to use either for myself, for my family, or for my home not only have to work well they have to be affordable. Or at the very least, they must provide enough value to me to make the cost worth paying for the benefit received.

I will pay more for better quality, but I’m never one to spend more on something than the value I gain from it. These two products take very little use of them volume-wise to reap huge benefits. They will last for a very long time before I need to purchase replacement bottles. I really love that.

So, all around, MIG Living is a brand that I am very pleased to use and to share with you. They offer other products, as well, like a body detox, a dry brush, various lotions, facial products, soaps, balms, and even a line of products for men. I can’t wait to choose another product to try. How do I choose??? Agh!!!! 

Also I should mention that MIG Living products are toxin-free, made with natural ingredients and without animal testing, and are made in the USA with ingredients sourced directly from farms versus commercial distributers. These are all important things I look for when shopping for products to use. 

Do me a favor. Browse MIG Living’s product line and let me know which item you’d love to try and why? I’m insanely curious!!!
