Sweet-Smelling Secrets to Regulating Blood Pressure In our highly stressful modern world, people don’t take enough time to stop and smell the roses. Fortunately, science is proving that breathing in some of nature’s most enjoyable fragrances can reduce the harmful effects of stress and high blood pressure so often linked with stress. Korean researchers determined that inhaling essential oils can help decrease high blood pressure without any detrimental side effects often associated with drugs. The study, published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, identified the effects of essential oil inhalation on the 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (blood pressure as you move around leading your normal daily routine) and salivary cortisol level. Cortisol is a stress hormone created by the adrenal glands.
vOITURE CAR RAPPEL RECALL - How to check if your car was recalled but not fixed - LA Times Car owners and buyers will be able to look up whether a vehicle has been recalled and fixed under a new federal program launched late Tuesday. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has developed an online search tool where drivers can find out if a specific car has been recalled and why. The car companies will have to provide at least 15 years of data for the tool, at and update their information every seven days. The program comes as manufacturers are recalling millions more vehicles than at any other time in U.S. history, about 46 million vehicles so far this year. That's almost 1 of every 5 cars in the U.S. and eclipses the annual recall record of 30.8 million vehicles set in 2004. The tool will give drivers "the peace of mind knowing that the vehicle they own, or that they are thinking of buying or renting, is free of safety defects," NHTSA Deputy Administrator David Friedman said.

Four Homemade Cleaners This was easier than I thought it would be. One of Betsy’s goals for the year was to ditch some of our standard cleaners that we use around the house and make them! Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about this project mainly because I wasn’t sure that homemade cleaners would really get the job done. And my lovely wife is a bit of a neat freak so there’s no way she would use something that didn’t perform well. So a couple of weekends ago she went out and bought a few staple ingredients and some empty spray bottles and we spent a few minutes mixing up four different homemade cleaners that have since replaced 90% of the cleaners we use around the house.
Get Started In Aromatherapy Bath and beauty companies have led most people to believe that aromatherapy is beneficial for relaxation, skin care and bathing. While it definitely helps in these regards, medical aromatherapy—a scientific approach to aromatherapy that uses the potent natural chemical constituents found in key essential oils—can also dramatically affect pain, inflammation, boost energy, improve sleep and improve healing. Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of natural oils from flowers, plants, trees, resins and other elements in nature that have healing properties.
