GETTING AS CLOSE TO NATURE AS WE CAN…

I was delighted to receive a gift box of goodies from Naturecan. A company who wants to get as close to nature as we can.

The company was started by a health-focused team with years of experience in nutrition, product development and quality ingredient sourcing. They want to share the oil-natural power of CBD.

From the seed to your door they deliver powerful CBD with quality effectiveness and safety at the heart of everything they do, and as close to nature as they can get it.

They have a great lifestyle blog which answers most health related issues, with regular tips and advice.

This beautiful box arrived wrapped immaculately and when I opened the box the products were neatly wrapped in tissue paper with a leaflet all about the privets and my name personally printed on the front with the words “Barbara discover what Naturecan do”. Well, so far Naturecan do has won my attention hands down.

The leaflet explains the products are grown and extracted from Oregon, USA to meet the highest quality standards and are all completely legal. They utilise whole-plant extraction to filter out unnatural products substances and a unique process maximises CBD concentration with 0% THC guaranteed. Every product is third-party lan tested for certified quality, every time.

They sell a range of CBD oils, capsules, topicals, edibles, non-CBD supplements, and naturally formulated beauty products. On the back of the leaflet it shows you what strength is best for each individual and reminds you to always start with a lower dosage before building up gradually to meet your needs.

The leaflet also has a simple returns form at the back and some FAQ’s. Everything is explained in so much detail.

In my beautiful CBD Tranquility Box, I had a daily moisturiser, lip balm, hand cream, multi-balm, CBD supplement Spearmint Flavour and purify clay mask. I couldn’t wait to start trying some out. All formulated using only plant extracts, active ingredients and broad-spectrum CBD oil, to harness the power of nature to help nourish, repair, and protect – from head to toe.

My box the CBD Tranquility Box is on offer at the moment as you can see from my picture below. I immediately tried out the lip balm as I am sure I am not alone in suffering from such dry lips at the moment, which I am sure has something to do with the masks we are wearing. After just one use my lips felt like normal again. I am now putting this before my lipstick to keep them from drying out.

The hand cream is amazing and smells delicious and the perfect size to keep nearby. The other two products I tried were the moisturiser and the balm which like the other products smells and feels lovely. I am keen to try the spearmint flavoured oil and the clay mask and will write about those products soon.

When I went onto the website I could see I am not alone in endorsing these products. They have five star reviews all round for the products and a number of celebrities also endorsing them. Pop over to their website and see for yourself.

SLEEP SUNDAY – MORE WAYS TO HELP YOU SLEEP…

Only a few more sleeps to Santa coming now but with everything else going on in the world it won’t be just the children who are missing their sleep.

Over the last month, I’ve been up in the night writing lists then reading to try and get my mind on something else. We cannot help it at the moment as there is so much to think about.

One minute they are telling us that we need a full night sleep to function correctly and even that sleeping may help you to lose some weight! Now, researchers are careful to note however that oversleeping has been linked to a host of medical problems, including diabetes and heart disease.

They say that sometimes circumstances mean we need more sleep, for instance during times of stress or illness ( like now). But, the typically recommended amount of sleep for adults should be between seven and nine hours each night.

Some tips to help you sleep if you are having difficulty at the moment are:

1. Have a glass of semi-skimmed milk with 2 teaspoons of honey before you got to bed for a natural goodnight’s sleep. Our immune system also works harder during sleep to fight and prevent illness.

2. Take Melatonin which is a hormone that plays a key part in regulating your natural body-clock. Studies have shown that melatonin improves sleep quality, particularly in the elderly.

3. Take Valerian as it is thought to have a sedative effect. Studies have shown that the root of the valerian makes getting to sleep easier and increases a deeper sleep.

4. Eat more leeks and onions or garlic and artichokes as they contain prebiotic fibres that fuel the healthy bacteria in our gut and can have a profound effect on our health and sleep.

5. Some CBD products help. For me personally, I prefer the gummies as I think they work better and easier to monitor how many you have had. They certainly relax you if nothing else.

6. Some people do truly believe acupressure to help you sleep. Use your first two fingers and tap them across the top of your head from temple to temple. Then work from front to back and side to side as this can get blood and oxygen moving to ease tension and restore focus.

Carbohydrates can get you fat, but it is a fact that the body cannot function without carbohydrates. Having a good amount of carbohydrates is required for your body and proper brain functioning. Eating whole carbohydrates raises the intensities of serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that regulates temper and anxiety in our body. 

So when those carbohydrate longings strike, have a bowl of oatmeal with milk or yogurt. Oatmeal is an excellent food to decrease stress as it’s filled with fiber, which means slower digestion and even out blood sugar level in the body. Since low blood sugar levels and low blood pressure raise irritation levels, this, in turn, increases anxiety and tension. Hence, a bowl of oatmeal or a glass of oatmeal smoothie will keep sugar and pressure in check, thereby alleviating stress.

Immunity levels will be high, and diseases like diabetes, hypertension will reduce. So pick up these food items next time you shop to have a stress free day.
