Scents can boost your energy, relieve stress and aid concentration when used properly. Cinnamon, for example, is a spicy scent that can help reduce stress while orange boosts energy levels. Aromatherapy is very simple if you are familiar with using scented oil and essential oils. Essential oils can be added to water in a spray bottle. Since essential oils are very concentrated you should be cautious when using them to make perfumes or other products that are applied to the skin since they can cause irritation if they aren’t diluted properly. Typically, three to four drops of essential oil is enough for four ounces of water to make your own aromatherapy spray.
Reed diffusers and candles are both popular aromatherapy options. Candles are available in a wide range of colours and styles. Opting for a soy candle is ideal if you want to benefit from aromatherapy since soy candles tend to throw scent better than other options. A reed diffuser is a bottle of scented liquid with reeds inserted into the top. The reeds can be flipped over as needed to expose the liquid to your space and scent it better. You can check out reed diffusers to find a wide range of styles and scented oils for your home. Diffusers offer aromatherapy benefits without using a flame, making this option safer than candles.
We are all sick now. Sadly, it was my eldest who got sick first after our trip to the Ripley’s Aquarium of Toronto during the Family Day weekend. He had high fever for two days and was absent in school. Then when he was already fine, the little boy was next, he also developed high fever and had no appetite at all (even till now). I can feel that he has already lost some weight because he doesn’t want to eat anything, he only drinks milk and water, which I know is good to keep him hydrated, but it is still very insufficient.
While my little boy was nursing his fever, I felt that I was going to be the next and indeed, early this week, I had clogged nose and my throat was so sore. I knew it all along that I would get the bug because the little boy was just so clingy and he wanted to be cuddled all the time. Good thing I do not have fever but I am coughing and barking like a mad dog and I don’t like it all, especially that I have to face people everyday this week.
I have our small bottle of Oil of Oregano ready all the time so that our sickness won’t last very long. Both the boys’ fever lasted only for two days and their stuffy noses just for a day, thanks to our miracle Oil of Oregano. I am still taking it twice a day and I am hoping that before the weekend, my cough is gone and that we will all be fine. It is just so not fun to be sick.
It is not uncommon to see in every family gathering that we’ve been into without seeing someone singing in the karaoke system. I guess almost all Filipino families have one or two in their house. It simply became one of the favourite pastimes for Filipinos. In fact, many were discovered to be known nationally and even at the international level and there are some who purely have the skills and talents. Others believe that it has something to do also with the type of gadgets that you use.
And probably the reason why you can hear something different when you are only using the ordinary microphones rather than the one used by professionals. I learned from a friend that the mic windscreen basically helps eliminate unwanted noise and breath sounds, not just directly from the artist alone but also the annoying sounds in the background or other instruments. It also protects your favourite microphone from moisture and dents.
