The Benefits of Cucumber
There’s a reason you constantly see people 
in spa ads with slices of cucumber under 
their eyes, smiling while they relax in a 
large towel. 

This vegetable is truly a gift from Mother 
Nature to our bodies!

In addition to being good for your physical 
health when consumed, cucumbers are saturated
with antioxidants that can do wonders for 
your skin when applied topically. 

In some of my previous blogs, I’ve mentioned 
that antioxidants are perfect for reducing skin 
irritation. Which is why you should add 
cucumbers to your natural skincare routine. 

Simply take a few slices of chilled cucumber 
and place them on the part of your skin that’s 
irritated for about 5-10 minutes. It might take 
a few applications. And of course, please 
consult your physician for any long-term skin 
irritation. 

If you’re one of the millions of people in this 
world who suffer from allergies, then you should 
absolutely add cucumbers to your natural skincare 
routine!

With seasonal allergies often comes puffy eyes, and 
all you need to do is apply a cucumber slice to each 
of your eyelids and wait about 5-10 minutes. Keep 
your eyes closed, too. 

Then remove the slices and massage any cucumber juice 
into your skin. Not only will your eyes look more 
refreshed, but you’ll be amazed at how much better 
they feel!

Another great benefit of cucumbers is that they’re 
loaded with water, which is perfect for reducing 
swelling. 

Some people suffer from swollen ankles, and while 
water and elevating your feet will often help, it’s 
also a good idea to apply some chilled cucumber 
slices to them as well. 

Keep them elevated and wait about 5-10 minutes, 
just like the other home remedies, and then 
massage any cucumber juice into your ankles. 

This is especially good if you’re a woman who 
suffers from water retention during her menstrual 
cycle. Consider doing it more often during those 
times of the month, if necessary. 

These are just a few ways to use refreshing 
cucumbers as part of your natural skincare routine. 

In next week's blog, I'll discuss the benefits of 
turmeric as part of your natural skincare routine!

Adrenal Support


As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!!  I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil.  Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning.  I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well!  Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys.   Need to get some of these oils?  CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED

  1. Aimee,
    Love your posts!
    What are your thots on rosacea? Or maybe that’s one you’re planning to post! My girls & I all have it. 😵‍💫 I’m surprised, as my parents didn’t! So we all battle it. I do use Norwex face cloth gently. I use a smidge of Emu oil on the redness. Then Emu special stuff for under eyes & their moisturizer on face along with organic Arian oil. My skin looks fine, just know I’ll never get over rosacea. I also know which foods trigger a flare up.
    We had a great Easter with 20 at our house!
    Take care!
    Sheryl 💞💞💞
