This includes having more energy to exercise and less desire to eat sugary foods. People who are tired are generally more likely to reach for unhealthy snacks or fast food that can provide an instant sugar rush.

Some essential oils may also help:

  • reduce anxiety
  • relieve tension
  • reduce feelings of depression
  • ease aches and pains in the body
  • improve digestion
  • curb food cravings
  • energize your workout
  • correct cellulite
  • correct stretch marks

Although essential oils are generally seen as safe to use, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Essential oils shouldn’t be ingested. These oils are super potent, and even a few drops can cause you to experience severe gastrointestinal discomfort. If you do ingest essential oil and have an adverse reaction, seek medical assistance.

Never use undiluted essential oil, as it may cause inflammation and irritation. You should always do a patch test to determine how your skin will react to the diluted essential oil.

If you are pregnant or nursing, be sure to consult with your doctor before use.

Cranberry Glazed Orange Muffins!

These Glazed Cranberry-Orange Muffins are perfectly moist, soft and the exact right balance of sweet and tart.

They are just perfect!

  • Perfectly moist…thanks to the yogurt in the batter.
  • Perfectly soft…thanks to the butter in the batter.
  • Perfectly flavored…thanks to the orange and the cranberry.
  • Perfectly sweet-tart balanced…thanks to the right balance of sugar and tart fresh cranberries.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 drops Orange Vitality or Tangerine Vitality essential oil
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp orange juice
  • 1 drop Orange Vitality or Tangerine Vitality essential oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray 12 muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray, or line with paper or silicone baking cups.
  • In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, cream the butter and then add the sugars, eggs, yogurt and vanilla and mix together. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix until thick batter forms.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, add the milk and 2 drops of Orange or Tangerine essential oil. Pour the milk-oils into the batter and mix until smooth.
  • Gently fold in the fresh cranberries. Spoon into the prepared muffin tin and bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 24 minutes, or until muffins in the middle have cooked through. (If each muffin tin is really full from the batter, you might want to place the muffin tin on a baking sheet, in case the fresh cranberry juice spills over the edge. You don’t want it to burn on the bottom of your oven and make a smoky mess!)
  • Prepare the glaze in a small bowl by mixing the powdered sugar, milk, orange juice and Orange or Tangerine essential oil together. Add a little more powdered sugar until reaches desired glaze consistency.
  • Let the muffins cool some before glazing and serving.

Notes

Serve the Perfect Cranberry-Orange Muffins for breakfast or snack.

I recently went through a tough emotional week.  My mother in law passed away, and all the emotions that go with that took me right down.   As a rule, I am a pretty happy upbeat person, for some reason when I lose a love one I grieve hard, even with my faith.

Make Sure You Take Care Of Your Health When On Set!

 

Last night I was on set for a show that is filming here in Winnipeg.  My call time was 1215 am, and I was cut at 5 am in the morning.  Let me tell you, it can be hard on your body and your health.  Here are my tips for staying healthy on set:

  1. Drink lots of water
  2. Bring some of your own healthy snacks
  3. Get out of the holding/trailer and go for a walk, just not too far so they can find you.
  4. Bring a book
  5. Bring your phone and headphones so you can tune out and listen to music or a podcast
  6. Bring several layers of clothing the temperature can change quickly in the time you are there.
  7. Use essential oils to invigorate you, or relax you as need be!
  8. Enjoy yourself!  Whether you are there for background or a role, it should be fun and not too stressful.  If you aren’t enjoying it don’t do it!  Its a choice you get to make for your life.  I personally love it, and love the craziness and constant change of the movie life!
