Hot Chocolate!

Its official…It’s not summer anymore. Thanksgiving is only a few days away, windswept flurries dominate the air, and the temperature being above 50 degrees is a miracle. Summer is a faint memory, reminisced about while trudging through gusts and weighed down in layers. But the colder weather isn’t too bad.

There's a reason they're are called ESSENTIAL oils!

Essential oils are considered the pure essence of a plant. They have been found to provide both psychological and physical benefits when used safely and in the properly stated directions in which to use them. Aromatherapy is when essential oils are inhaled into the lungs, offering both psychological and physical betterment. The aroma of the natural essential oil stimulates the brain triggering a reaction, but when inhaled into the lungs, the natural constituents can supply a therapeutic benefit. Diffusing eucalyptus essential oil to help ease congestion is a one example. Although aromatherapy is a leading use of essential oils, it’s not the only use. Essential oils can be used in household and laundry cleaners cleaning better and supplying a lovely, non-chemical scent. Some oils act as a natural insect repellent and pesticide.  Citronella candles during the summer to keep mosquitoes away are similar because citronella essential oil is the ingredient in the candles that …

Natural Healing

There are lots of different ailments out there. Not surprisingly, there’s just as many, if not more, medicines to treat these illnesses. You can be plagued by several different pains and be prescribed several different medicines, but who wants to go through the hassle of taking 5 different pills? It’s complicated, sometimes dangerous, and sometimes completely unnecessary. There’s a trickledown effect when it comes to medicine. The idea may have started with helping you get better, but with so many people affecting how you get your medicine, it becomes widely impersonal. Big, faceless pharmaceutical companies seem like they aren’t worried about whether or not you can afford several different types of medicine; it seems like they’re not even concerned with if you feel better afterwards. With big corporations it’s difficult to gage whether or not they actually care when you have no personal connection, you don’t understand any of the ingredients in the medicine you’re taki…

Celebrate a Different Culture!

eSutras Organics is all about diversity. Wecelebrate all things different and out of the box. We also pride ourselves on being unique and open to all walks of life. That’s today’s Monday Recipe will be celebrating a different culture. Most people know, but for those of you who don’t the religion of Judaism celebrated Passover in April. Passover is one of the most widely celebrated Jewish religions in the world. It’s a week-long festival celebrating the story of Exodus told in the bible. One food commonly used during this holiday is matzo, unleavened bread made solely from flour and water. It is continually worked from mixing through baking, so that it is not allowed to rise. The Torah says that it is because the Hebrews left Egypt with such haste that there was no time to allow baked bread to rise; thus flat, unleavened bread, matzo, is a reminder of the rapid departure of the Exodus. Today’s recipe is for Matzo Brownies. They are a modern take on the old tradition of eati…

Health Body Makes a Strong Mind

“A feeble body weakens the mind.” Famous Swiss philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau said that in the 1700’s and it still applies to our everyday life today. If your body is off kilter, then your mind can’t be expected to focus to the best of its ability. Your mind in the control center of your body, everything your body does is processed by your brain, so if you’re not taking proper care of your body, obviously the brain processes that. Your mind thrives on a healthy body. You ever notice after a filling and healthy breakfast in the morning you’re more alert, you’re less tired, you have more focus the rest of the day? That’s your mind complimenting your body on getting the nutrition it needs to perform at its best. eSutras Organics has tons of great products called “super foods” that help your body stay strong so your mind stays lively. · ·eSutras Organics Flaxseed Meal Another great source of fiber.
