5 Ways to Use Lavender Essential Oil for a Happy Baby

Bali Lavender Essential Oil of BabyI have long since been a huge fan of using lavender essential oil to ease stress and anxiety, but honestly had no idea how versatile a tool it was in the home until little Margaux was born. Since becoming a mama, I have gotten rid of so many household items that could be harmful to my precious little bundle — toxic cleaning supplies (even ones masquerading as natural), dryer sheets, perfumes, air fresheners.. the list goes on and on.  I started researching natural replacements for all these things I wasn’t sure I could live without, and was really surprised to see lavender pop up everywhere.  Lavender essential oil was about so much more than better sleep and stress release!

I received a bottle of Bali Botanics Lavender Essential Oil just in time to put all these awesome uses to the test.  Bali Botanics is the lovechild of partners Bar and Lou, who left their London home for a simpler, healthier life in Ubud, Bali. Living in such an amazing natural environment inspired the couple to start a line of essential oils that showcase the raw, natural ingredients that surround them.

Their lavender oil is harvested without pesticides, fillers, or chemicals, and is 100% pure, which is so important when using oils on and around babies!

Here are my top 5 uses for lavender essential oil for a happy, healthy baby:Natural Fabric Softener: In case you didn’t get the memo, your basic household laundry detergent and dryer sheets are NOT safe for your baby.  From the added fragrances to a plethora of chemicals, these bad boys can cause eczema and other skin irritation, rashes, and even hormonal imbalances and immunity issues if you’re using the super chemical stuff.  Though there are lots of safe baby laundry detergents out there (we use Ecos Baby), there aren’t any good fabric softeners, which can lead to rough baby clothes : ( A super safe and natural alternative is using organic 100% wool dryer balls with a few drops of lavender essential oil.  These puppies naturally soften clothes and shorten drying times, while the lavender essential oil freshens clothes with a calming and soothing natural scent!Calming Nursery Diffuser: A drop or two in an aromatherapy diffuser brings a calming and soothing sensibility to baby’s nursery, helping her sleep and soothing colic and overstimulation.Baby Massage Oil: I add a few drops of lavender essential oil to Margaux’s Earth Mama Angel Baby Oil (which is otherwise unscented).  The essential oil soothes and calms her and makes for a super lovely pre-bedtime massage.Super Mama Soother:  When baby is teething, colicky, or extra fussy, nothing works better than mama’s arms.  Except for mama’s arms boosted with the power of lavender essential oil! Put a couple drops on a cotton ball and place in your shirt for extra soothing aromatherapy for baby!Teething rub: Take 1 drop each of lavender oil and clove oil diluted in a tablespoon of carrier oil (I like olive oil or coconut oil for this purpose) and rub with a clean finger over baby’s gums.  The effect is anti-inflammatory and helps relieve that horrible teething pain! It also calms a frazzled teething baby.

How To NOT Lose Friends Over Your Lifestyle Choices

By Callie McBride

“Look who’s off to the gym again.”

“I’d eat as many greens as you, too, if I were a giraffe…”

“At the end of the day, I’d much rather have the cupcake than not.”


These and plenty of other comments can be routinely heard from family, friends, co-workers, and people who lead a different lifestyle than you do, and seem eager to judge. In the nearly 3 years that I have been vegan, and in the 5+ years that I have expressed my passion for health and fitness, I have laughed off ‘vegan’ jokes, stomached outwardly opinionated friends, and even held my tongue around certain people who are quite vocal about their disapproval or disinterest in a holistic way of living. Certainly not everyone is as gung-ho about hot yoga and green smoothies as you are, but it can become frustrating when your life choices become criticized on a regular basis and you feel the need to refrain from practicing those choices in order to fit in. Just last week I spent a number of days with a loud, fun-loving family whose only agenda was to lounge, eat, and drink. (I know, I know, where can you sign up!?) Like many families, this one especially loves to come together over a meal, so inviting a girl with a plant-based diet into the home was a challenge for them. Each time they had questions or comments about my lifestyle, I graciously answered and listened to what they had to say. After a while, though, the vegan jokes were popping up 4 or 5 times in an afternoon. “The ribs are on the grill, we know you can’t wait!” “We made this cheesecake special for you-oh waaaaait.” My personal favorite: “So, you’re vegan…like, where do you find joy in life?”

If you’ve ever done grade school theatre or participated in a kindergarten beauty pageant, you know how exhausting it is to hold a fake smile. Unfortunately, that’s what I felt like I was doing. While I recognize that the digs and comments are all in good fun, I quickly felt that I stood out like a sore thumb every time the dinner bell rang. It got me thinking that no matter what life choices a person makes, if they stand out from what’s considered the ‘norm’, it can be tough to live out those choices in a social setting.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

In an effort to remedy my feelings of frustration and inconvenience toward people who don’t understand why I eat the way that I do, I have compiled a list of ways to inform without lecturing, extend invitations without pressuring, and constructing rebuttals without starting World War III.

1. Share your snacks. A fool-proof way of convincing people that vegans (or simply healthy eaters) aren’t aliens and that healthy eating can be delicious, is to show them with food! Choose your favorite healthy treat or green appetizer to make and bring to a summer barbecue or birthday party so that you can eat your cake and have it, too. All those jokes will disappear once vegan chocolatey goodness is in the picture.

2. Keep it short and sweet. People who are unfamiliar with the plant-based diet and holistic lifestyle will ask questions. Be sure not to transform into your old high school biology teacher and go into a 30 minute spiel about the benefits of kale and the history of coconut oil. Instead, stick with a brief answer to the ever-popular question of why you live the way you do. I usually say with a smile, “It makes me feel great and brings me happiness. I just like to feel my best!”

3. Have a few tricks up your sleeve. If the joking continues, pull out some of your own. Making sure not to judge or offend, think of cheeky ways to throw a question back onto someone who may be grilling you about your particularly green dinner plate. “I’m actually trying to see if my body starts sprouting leaves, thanks for noticing!” “I’m in a competition with my pet rabbit to see who can consume more raw carrots within a day. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.” “When the rest of the world zigs, I zag. You should really try it.”

4. Extend open invitations. Especially when vacationing with friends or living with roommates, sneaking away to the gym can frustrate people who either aren’t on top of their fitness game or who want to spend time as a group. Instead of waking up at the crack of dawn to fit in your workout before everyone else’s day starts, make a suggestion for the group to rent bikes or play beach volleyball. Your dedication to fitness shouldn’t be overruled by your peers, but asking them to join in is a win-win situation. A dance party is a wonderful disguise for a cardio without…

5. Go all out with a plant-based feast. If your siblings, boyfriend, or business partner are still on the fence about your obsession with raw veggie collard wraps, pull the final trigger an invite them over for 3-course vegan or plant-based meal to wow them. For brothers or boyfriends who frequent Buffalo Wild Wings and Taco Bell on a weekly basis, try Alicia Silverstone’s 7-layer dip; they won’t know what hit them. For your mother or sister and their sweet teeth, try any of Chocolate Covered Katie‘s cookie, cake, or pie recipes-most are sugar and fat free. For the culinary connoisseur, prove just how dimensional veganism can be by slaving over any of these gourmet raw recipes, and be sure to kill the presentation.

These tricks won’t have anyone running away from you, and may even open some doors to more willing eaters.

Daily Acts of Self-Love = What’s Missing in Your Life

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

Daily acts of self-love aren’t just fuzzy, feel-good luxuries.  They are what is standing in between you and the body, life, and love that you are so desperately seeking.  They are a necessity, and their lack leaves a huge gaping hole in your life that you then fill with ice cream, TV, wine, unfulfilling sex, and potato chips.

I know all your excuses, I’ve heard them all before.  “But Natasha, I can’t afford massages!” or “I don’t have time for picnics in the park!”  That may or may not be true, but each and every one of us has some time and some money to dedicate to the fundamental cause of our own happiness.  So I’m doing the work for you!  I’ve compiled a list of daily acts of self-love that fit any budget, any schedule.  Make it a priority to pick one every day.. start small, and before you know it, daily acts of self-love, mindfulness, and joy will be a habit as natural to you as brushing your teeth.

Blissed Out Beauty Products from Purity Apothecary!

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

In my daily quest of being more mindful, more at ease, and more happy, I get super pumped when the products I use are aligned with my mission.  I want every single thing that I put on my skin or body, into my mouth, and around me in my space to feel luxurious, smell amazing, and be sourced in a way I can feel good about.

So you can imagine how pumped I was to discover Purity Apothecary, a beautiful line of organic skincare products that are infused with therapeutic essential oils, powerful herbal ingredients, and delicious botanicals.  This stuff is good enough to eat!

San Diego-based owner, Christina Price (who contributed an awesome guest post on organic skincare a while back), is a beautiful young vet who wanted to pursue her passion for chemical-free skincare, and make her own way as an entrepreneur in a tricky economy.  Well she certainly has accomplished her goal!  Her products are beautifully packaged in BPA-free, recyclable packaging, are super effective and potent, and of course, smell absolutely divine.  And best of all, they are totally affordable, which is so hard to come by with such high-quality ingredients!

I use her Black Cherry & Rosemary Lip Balm ($5.99) every morning and evening, for lusciously hydrated lips that taste and smell, I swear to god, like my childhood favorite cherry cola (that I haven’t had in about 15 years).  I can only imagine that the Lavender Bergamot and Peppermint Plump varieties are just as amazing.

I use the Lavender & Vanilla Soap ($6.99) daily, which leaves our bathroom smelling like a tranquil spa, and leaves my hands moist and happy.  I am totally obsessed with the Awakened Chakra Bath Salts ($24.99), made with spearmint and rosemary infused pink himalayan sea salt, which soothe muscles, restore magnesium levels, and melt away tension and stress.  And my absolute faves are the heavenly aromatherapy sprays.  I use the Organic Fresh Lavender Spray ($19.99) to freshen my office and create a soothing and calm environment for my clients.  And as an added bonus, I can use it as an invigorating body spray to pick me up throughout the day!  Christina also makes an awesome Yoga Mat Spray ($19.99), which cleanses stinky mats with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial tea tree oil.  And of course, you can also use it as a post-workout body spray to awaken your senses and intensify the calming effects of your practice!

The line has you covered from head to toe, with natural toothpaste and organic deodorant, body butters, and natural perfumes.

I have to say, I’m in love!

Fast Track Your Commute to Feel Good Status!

By Kristina Tortoriello

Author’s Note: a post in homage to hump day. 

Morning commutes are, on the whole, prickly. How do we rally our powers toward healthy living (and so early!) when we’ve only recently wrenched ourselves from sleep? And isn’t sleep the real health factor at risk here? In other words: Just… one more… snooze…?

Believe me, I hear you. But let’s assume that you too are among the begrudging, bed-headed many! More or less, you feel like you’ve managed to boil your concept of self down to ping-pong ball size for the sake of the work week, and for days straight, you’ll pretty much spend nine to five being batted around, within the margins of a giant to-do list– be it from office chair to OfficeMax and back, or from client to co-worker, a.k.a. fellow peeved projectiles in the race for the weekend! Hoorah!

Of course, I’m only (half) kidding. The “rat race” needn’t be so ratty after all, subway route notwithstanding. There are various ways to give breathing room to pesky corporate constraints! Change can start with your commute if you let it! So what about the “me time” before you’re officially on the clock?  Uplift your AM attitude with a few key pointers given here:

1. Walking means fresh air and Vitamin D. If there’s any stretch of commute you can do via bipedalism, why not do it?! This tends to be region-specific, I realize, but fellow New Yorkers are actually pretty lucky in this respect. We get to people watch AND take in some day rays. Even if we have to severely filter the weird smells through our noses, we can breathe freely!

2. I Spy Something Green: Try and incorporate some patch of greenery into your morning walk. Communing with the natural world for a half-block is hardly optimal, but a favorite tree or rock or special planter on the corner outside a favorite bodega, can be the somewhere you start. Rule of thumb: If it makes you smile in the morning, however briefly, don’t pass it up. Pass on by!

3. Advance a level! You’ve heard it before, but changing up your actual elevation can improve overall health. If you’ve got a ways to go, opt for the stairs over escalator, the incline versus the flat road. I’m not advocating you necessarily go sliding face-first on ice, but find the challenge without unnecessary complication of your route. Instead of taking the same route every morning, leave a little time and explore a new one- if you’re so inclined. Just maybe, this proves easier than you think: There are so many stairs and potholes in New York to choose from.

4. Do you bike? Even better! Amp the cardio for a can-do start to any day.

5. A sip and/or snack! While juices are raging on into Fitness Forever, there’s no harm in this trend! If you’re the kind to tote a morning power pick-me–up, why not try a homemade concoction, packed with fresh fruit and veggies? (Spending $6 at Jamba Juice doesn’t count). You can pretty much throw whatever you like into a blender, which apart from the fabulous noise factor, makes it the obvious choice for those of the don’t-do-mornings crowd like myself. Tea and honey in a thermos is equally travel-friendly. Importantly, here, I intend for the snack factor to be a separate business from breakfast. I see so many folks wolfing protein bars in place of a balanced meal, and can’t say I’ve not been personally tempted- I get the time crunch thing, but crunch into breakfast first! Sit down, do it up right. I don’t need to say much here, I’m sure by now you all get the gist. Snacks are secondary! Tote that yogurt in addition, not instead.

6. Tune in! Nothing revs us up for some healthy, occupational optimism like a personal playlist. Discretion always advised on this one. Pesky thing about iPods, they can remove us from our environments, much as they can enhance them. To sum up: still look both ways, and don’t irritate the entire train car, but otherwise, get pumped!

7. Say hello. Situationally speaking. Now I’m well aware there exist hordes of weekend warriors who’d rather not be glanced at, so much as addressed, but why not play a game with yourself? Be on the hunt! If there’s a slight chance you think someone might appreciate a greeting, go for it!  Even if they don’t respond, it’s a pretty solid mood booster to send well wishes into the universe from time to time. You never know what someone else is going through (some days are off to rougher starts than others)- and a kind word, easily said, can easily make all the difference!

What do you think? Just some teeny things to make the back and forth a whole lot brighter. (Also, polar vortex considered, tissues are only practical).

Healthy Easter Recipes (Brunch, Dinner, even Dessert!)

By: Stephanie Heino

Colorful-Eggs-Wishes-Happy-Easter-Day-2013Easter is approaching and we want to help you find the perfect healthy Easter menu for your celebration, so you don’t have to go crazy on the unhealthy options on that dinner table. If you are looking for anything from a casual, outdoor Easter brunch recipe to a formal Easter dinner recipe, we’ve got you covered. Instead of filling up on empty calories that will make you feel sluggish and heavy during the day, go the healthy route and feel great and energetic all day. And, listen — healthy doesn’t mean you’ll be missing out! There are plenty of great recipes online, and we compiled some of our top picks for you. These recipes taste decadent but are made using only healthy nutritious ingredients and techniques.

DSC_6257Healthy Vegan Brunch Pancakes


1 cup unsweetened almond milk1 tablespoon coconut flour2 teaspoons flax seeds1/4 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon olive oil


Measure out all the ingredients and add them to a blender. Blend together for about 60 seconds. Heat the teaspoon of olive oil on a non-stick pancake pan and add 1/3 of the mixture. After one minute, flip pancake over to other side. After one minute flip over again; it should be a golden-brown color. Do the same with the rest of the batter and you are done! Healthy, vegan, gluten-free, and filling pancakes. Enjoy them with fresh berries and a banana!

Grilled Wild Salmon and vegetablessalmonzebrano


4 small red onions, cut into 1-inch slices (about 1 pound)4 Vidalia spring onions, quartered (about 8 ounces)4 cipollini onions (about 4 ounces)2 cups sliced fennel (about 7 ounces)1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper1 tablespoon chopped fennel fronds1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets2 cups baby spinach1/4 cup Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette


Prepare grill.Place onions and sliced fennel in a large pan of boiling water; cook 3 minutes until tender. Drain and plunge into ice water; drain.Toss vegetables with oil. Place vegetables on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until tender and lightly browned. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, fennel fronds, and parsley.Sprinkle salmon with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place salmon on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Place 1 salmon fillet onto each of 4 plates. Toss pea tendrils with Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette. Place about 1/2 cup pea tendril mixture over salmon. Add 1 1/2 cups grilled vegetables to each serving, and serve immediately.

parsnip+cakesParsnip Spinach Cakes


5 parsnips, thickly sliced & roasted1 handful spinach leaves1/3 cup blanched almond flour2-3 cloves garlic, chopped2 pastured eggs1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea saltpepper to taste1 pinch cayenne pepper


(If your parsnips are raw, bake in 400º oven for 20 minutes, allow to cool slightly, then proceed with recipe.)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until it’s doughy. You might need to turn it off and push the spinach leaves down towards the blades, then turn it back on to get it all to incorporate. Use your hands to form balls and flatten into cakes, about 1/3 inch thick. Bake in oven on 350º until browned and crispy. Serve warm and enjoy those delicious cakes!

paleo-coconut-macaroons-thumb Coconut Macaroons (Paleo-friendly, gluten-free)
(8 Servings)


2 large egg whites¼ cup honey¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt2 ½ cups coconut flakes


In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites and honey with a forkBriefly whisk in salt, then stir in coconut flakesPlace bowl in fridge to chill for ½ hourFill a 2 tablespoon scoop with batter, so it’s heaping fullUsing your hand, firmly pack batter into scoop so it is levelRelease batter onto a parchment paper lined baking sheetBake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, until macaroons are golden brownCool for 1 hour and serve

Brunch can get pretty heavy though, and the cocktails are no exception. On their own, most spirits average around 120 calories in a typical pour. Start adding fruit and veggie juice to the mix and that number quickly goes up — a Bloody Mary can easily add 350 calories and a ton of sodium to your meal. But since many people refuse to give them up, I will help you make healthier versions at home. In a way, it’s almost like having a salad in a cup, specially if you make it virgin!

Healthy Bloody Mary

red-snapperA Bloody Mary doesn’t have to equal a glass full of empty calories. To healthify your drink, opt for making your own tomato juice or buy a low-sodium variety without added sugar or sodium, instead of buying the standard bloody mary mix or tomato juice. The spices in a typical Bloody Mary make all the added salt unnecessary. When making it, think beyond celery, olives and lemons, and pile on the veggies. Use green beans, asparagus, carrots, and radish for great results. To save even more calories, use low-cal shochu (tastes like vodka but has fewer calories) instead of vodka, or simply skip the alcohol and make it a virgin. By skipping the liquor you can really feel great by getting all the benefits from the veggies, especially the lycopene from all that tomato, when the rest of the group will feel sluggish after a couple of hours! Win!


(Optional: 2 oz. of Organic Shochu)Fresh juice made from blended baby carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, asparagus, radish (you name it!)Dash of Tabasco sauceDash of organic ground black pepperDash of organic sea salt


Pour a scoop full of ice into a metal shaker(Add 1 oz of the shochu)Add in the dash of black pepper and organic sea saltFill the shaker with the blended vegetable and fruit juiceShake for a few seconds, or enough until the mixture is well blendedPour into a high ball or pint glass.Garnish with a celery stick.[Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
