Citrus Press

Last week I was watching this guy talk about cleansing with Citrus and Essential Oils.

The next thing I know somehow randomly a day later I was trading Essential Oils for a brand new Juice Press.  So Stoked!  I couldn’t have even imagined having one.

This recipe is KILLER!  But not for WIMPS and I would skip the oils with a child.  There are some HOT oils in this that may burn/tingle your lips but only for a few seconds and boy does it cut through some crud!

So after you press 10 pounds of citrus there is one heaping pile of rinds.

Dehydrated Citrus Peels

Rather than compost and distribute in the Yarden, I decided to dehydrate them in the oven for a few hours.  I tried to dehydrate them whole but they would not dry evenly, so I sliced them as thin as possible and they turned out just like citrus cracklins. YUM!

I will be adding them to some of my future recipes.

Oh man, the whole house smelled so awesome all weekend.

Even fully dried the uplifting scent of citrus makes me smile.

Got any good ideas on how to use them besides tea and bath salt soaks?

Adventure’s in DixeyLand, Young Living Meetings, NW Florida, Robertsdale, AL, Giveaway DEADLINE!

I’m not sure why but last week we picked the worst weather day of the week to go out and adventure about. It was raining cats and dogs. We inched our way on down to the End of the Line for some Carrot Ginger soup with a friend. There are not a lot of places out there that I let my guard down and eat like a pig! It’s all Vegan, Organic and non-GMO. I haven’t been down there in a while, so this was a much needed welcome treat. It was packed like a can of sardines. Thriving and ALIVE just like the food they serve.

Love that place for all that they do to help people make better choices. AND NO! I’m not a vegan and YES I eat meat but not as often as I used to….

They have a Thursday 3 course dinner that comes with a drink and dessert and they do the same thing on Sunday’s at Brunch. Also, recently I saw an advertisement for cooking classes. So if you want to learn how to eat vegan then maybe? This is for you. The creative approach they take to eating is certainly 5 star in my book. I have never left a crumb on my plate.


On a totally different note: We are Sprouting some fun ideas for our Young Living Meetings.

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel

One of the most common herbs used in healing. Popular uses include cuts, hemorrhoids, bruises and sore muscles. Millions of gallons of witch hazel water is made, sold and used in the US every year. Witch hazel has nothing to do with witchcraft. In Medieval English it meant flexible. Originally it was spelled wych.

Witch Hazel a tree with very flexible branches that were at one time used by American Indians to make bows. They made tea to put on bug bites, cuts, aching muscles, to drink for colds and all kinds of other health issues. In the 1840’s an Indian passed it on to someone who then started marketing it.

Most common witch hazel found on store shelves has no witch hazel water in it. The astringent benefits you get from the kind with no water really come from the alcohol content. If you want real astringent benefits you need to make witch hazel brew. It’s Easy.

Witch Hazel Tea:

  • 1 teaspoon powdered leaves or twigs
  • 8 oz. cup boiling water
  • Steep 10 minutes
  • Strain, cool and apply directly or add to another recipe.

There’s no real reports of side effects from external use of witch hazel but if it bothers you at all, stop using it. It should not cause any discomfort.
