The Top 6 Reasons to Own an Essential Oil Diffuser




Have you ever thought about using an essential oil diffuser to improve your mood or health? 

I love essential oils, always use them during my bath and lately started using them in my Oil Diffuser.

Why do I like to use my oil diffuser?




1. Sleep and relax
One of the best and most well-known uses for essential oils is their magical ability to help us relax. Who doesn't know the powerful lavender? Use lavender as an essential oil in your diffuser when you get home from work. Just add few drops, push the power button on and relax.


2. Use it to relieve pain- you probably know that you can use essential oil directly on your skin ( remember that you have to dilute them first before applying) to help with pain, but they also work when used in oil diffusers. Oils you can use are: Chamomile, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Bergamot Oil
Disclaimer: Natural remedies should always be handled with care and essential oils are no exception to the rule. If you are not sure how to use them always seek for the advice.

3. Use it to repel insects at home or office- Use clove, rosemary cedarwood or lemongrass oil in your diffuser to keep mosquitoes, house flies or a month away from your home.

4. Helps to breathe easier - having a cold, blocked nose oil diffusers are great to help you unblocked the clogged nose or sinus. Use Peppermint, Rosemary, Lemon, Eucalyptus oil.

5. Helps romance- oh yes, our sense of smell is incredibly powerful for accessing our brain can have great effect on  our libido and hormones Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Rose, Jasmine, Patchouli oil 

6. Keep your home fresh and odour free. Yes, so simple yet the best way to keep your home fragrant.

Where do I get one?
With so many options to choose from, it may be difficult to decide which diffuser is best for you.
If you don’t own an essential oil diffuser, I personally use Organic Aromas- Raindrop 
You can get it at 
The Organic Aromas Diffuser is simple and beautiful and you can get it in different designs. The colour changing lights are vibrant, it looks amazing in the evening.

When buying essential oils, one of the most vital things you must know and remember about essential oils is not all essential oils are good. In fact, most of them are not and available to buy for less than £1, which means they are not good for your health and often synthetic. When buying essential oils make sure they are certified and preferably organic.

Why I like it:

No need for heat – essential oil composition is not transmuted
No need to add water – essential oil will not emulsify/corrode
Complete diffusion of 100% of the oil without diluting its purity
Uses limited power and a safe DC voltage adapter with extremely long life
Quiet – can be used at night or very discreetly

Visit Organic Aromas website for more info.

Veggie burger

Burger season is upon us, my friends! Yuppie






So dust off those BBQ and let’s get cooking! Those of you without a grill, don't worry, you can make this recipe in the pan.



We both love burgers and the most veggie burgers.




Many times I've tried to make those perfect burger patties and it never worked the way I wanted.




But now I have this problem off my shoulders, cos we now discovered Dee's vegan burgers and they are totally amazing ( and no drama for me).

Delicious and healthy alternative to meat burgers, suitable for vegans.







Fo my burgers I used:


2 omega burgers
2 whole grain rolls
1 big tomato
1 onion
1/2 zucchini
1 carrot spiralized 
a handful of spinach
1 tbsp coconut oil  for frying


avocado sauce:
1 ripe avocado]1 clove of garlic
2 tbsp coconut milk ( I used the can)
salt
pepper


Method:


1. On the grilling pan with 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, grill zucchini and onions until golden brown, then met the other half of coconut oil and grill your burgers until you will get crispy skin.
2. Cut bread rolls and brown them in the hot pan before serving.
3. For avocado sauce. Mix everything in food processor or blender, you can add spices of your choice if you wish.
4. Slather the inside of the buns with the avo sauce. Place the burgers on the bun bottoms, add veggies, and top with the bun top. Serve immediately and enjoy!




Dee's products are available in many stores, check if you have them near by.

Disclaimer: Dee's provided me with a few products for review but, as always, all opinions are my own.

Rocket and goat cheese open-faced sandwich


Made this delicious sandwich couple of days ago.
I am obsessed with goat cheese lately.

On Saturday I was doing my weekly fruit and veggie shopping, when I came across this delicious goat cheese.
It is called Ticklemore Goats Cheese, its mild and fresh tasting without that strong goat cheese aroma. It is a moist, yet crumbly texture- perfect for salads, zesty and subtle lemony taste.
This will be a great addition on your BBQ platter, as well as salads.


So let me introduce you to your new favorite quick and easy breakfast, lunch or dinner. I am sure that these will also mane exceptional party food.


Goat cheese as much as you want
salt
pepper
1 clove of garlic
Crusty sourdough bread (toasted or untoasted)
butter
handful rocket (or salad if you prefer)


1. Crumble the cheese, add olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic(you can do this step few hours before).
2. Smear a thin layer of butter on a piece of the toasted/ untoasted  bread. Top with some rocket, marinated goat cheese, you can add some prosciutto.
(*) I didn’t list quantities for assembling since with sandwiches I’ve found that everyone’s preferences really vary! Use as much you like!

Hope that you will enjoy!
