Why I love lemons! 

Waking up with blemishes can be aggravating. Need a quick fix?  Use half a lemon and put a few drops of honey on it. Rub the lemon all over your face and leave on for 5 minutes. It will clear up your skin and fade away marks/spots.

Feel that tingle in your throat, followed by coughing and flu like symptoms?  Dilute lemon juice in a glass of water and gargle a few times a day to cure a sore throat. Squeeze the juice of one lemon in hot water and drink throughout the day.

It’s that time of the month again! Bloating, pain, discomfort, heavy bleeding….Lemons relief menstrual pain and ease bleeding. Drink the juice of 3-4 lemons in cold water every day of your period.

Joint and nerve pain is killing you? Grate the skin from 2 lemons (minus the white part) and gently rub the treated lemon peel into the affected part of the body. Wrap in warm cloth and repeat every few hours.


Rosemary is one of my favorite home remedies to use! 

It tastes delicious, smells good, and is a helpful herb to have in your cabinet.

Rosemary is a powerful antioxidant which can protect your brain from toxins and effects of aging. This herb can help fight colds and the flu. It soothes your cough and improves your breathing. It acts as an powerful antibacterial/anti-fungal herb and is an excellent antiseptic mouthwash.


Rosemary tea makes a great hair rinse which promotes hair growth, restores your color and gets rid of dandruff.

Drinking rosemary tea will stimulate blood circulation and can ease headaches and migraines.


Oh yes! We all want to fit inside those skinny jeans again.

To cleanse your system and shed a few pounds, I use Cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper is a spicy, aromatic powder, also known for its pain-relieving properties. This spicy firecracker improves digestion, fights infection-causing bacteria, and is a good source of different vitamins and minerals. Drinking a Cayenne pepper/water mixture every morning helps cleans your system of impurities, eliminates toxins and burns excess fat. Simply squeeze the juice of half a lemon (must be freshly squeezed) into a 10oz glass of purified water, add two teaspoons  of Agave syrup and 1/10th a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Good luck!


Need some spice in your love life?

Many women and men try to find substances that can enhance their sexual desire to bring back pleasure to their sex life. All they really need to do is to open their spice cabinet and find the simplest, yet very effective aphrodisiacs. By the way,  the word aphrodisiac comes from the Greek goddess Aphrodite, who is the goddess of love and sensuality.

A stimulating herb for women is Ginseng. It acts rejuvenating for your body, triggers certain biochemical mechanisms which increases libido.

Men are easily aroused after eating chocolate: Pure chocolate is considered the king of natural aphrodisiacs for men and contains certain “feel-good” chemicals like phenylethylamine, which is responsible for the feeling of pleasure and excitement.  Chocolate releases serotonin in the brain, a chemical that aids in relaxation and triggers every man’s sexual desire. Enjoy! 😉
