DIY Spa-toberfest Recipes

Beer-SpaDIY Spa-toberfest Recipes:

We would love to share these two DIY spa recipes for a relaxing beer “ritual” including a thorough exfoliation followed by a soak.

Hops & Barley Body Polish

½ cup fine sea salt
1 teaspoon barley
1 teaspoon dried hops
1 tablespoon honey
¼ cup oil of choice (olive, grapeseed, coconut)

1. Grind barley in a coffee grinder.  Mix all ingredients together and gently apply to body in a circular motion, focusing on areas of dry skin.
2. This healing scrub will soften the skin, while providing hydration and anti-aging benefits!

Calming Beer Soak

Fill a bath tub with warm water (92-100 degrees) and pour a room temperature bottle of your favorite beer into the water. We love Dogfish Head’s 60 or 90 minute IPA. The beer soak is high in B vitamins, hydrates the skin and relaxes the senses!

Enjoy and drink responsibly. Also check out our OMGentlemen’s “Holler If You Beer Me ” hops infused line on our site – great variety of ales and stout skincare.

Holiday Health OMG Style

‘Tis the season to be jolly but between the stress, colds, aches and pains that is kind of hard to do. Here are a couple of holiday foods and ideas that can help you tackle those seasonal OMG Moments.

~Cloves: Has one of the highest antioxidant rankings of any spice and can be used in cider as well as winter fruit salads

~Thyme: Full of antioxidants that alleviate respiratory ailments like bronchitis and keep you breathing easy even when you’re not sick. It can be used in roasted poultry, meats and seafood.

~Anise: Use this to help with stomach issues-its relaxes the gastrointestinal muscles and can be used in poached fruit and pastries.

~Hazelnuts:The skin of the nut, filberts, is full of proanthocyanidins, compounds that may helpImage strengthen blood vessel, reduce heart disease risk, and boost brain health.

~Pecans: They boast an ORAC score (a measure of antioxidant capacity) higher than even wild blueberries. Plus regular servings may help delay age related cognitive decline.

~ Clear Your Chest:Combine 3 to 4 drops of pine or eucalyptus essential oil with a few drops of lavender in olive oil. Rub it on your chest, then apply hot and cold packs for relief. Once inhaled they stimulate blood flow through the lungs.

~Soothe Throat: Use zinc cough drops every two hours. The lozenges will coat the irritated throat tissue, dulling pain, while the mineral migrates into your system, potentially reducing the lifespan of the cold.

~Hot Cordial for Cold Relief: concentrated fruit juice warmed up can relieve colds symptoms. Try this apple and black currant cordial either hot or at room temperature. Stir 2tsp black currant syrup into 1 cup hot apple juice.

~ Health Booster: Elderberry is high in anthocynanins and antioxidants, which increase cellular absorption of vitamin C. Vitamin C, in turn, protects the mucosalsurfaces of your nose and mouth so viruses have more difficult time penetrating them.

OMG’S RX LINE: Science vs Nature ~ HOW, WHAT AND WHY

Our OMG Rx Line is a prestigious group of products, precisely formulated on the foundation of building the consumer’s natural immunity to fight anything from the common cold to extreme ailments like diabetes.  Either through the method of inhalation or massage our products are created to not only achieve optimal results but also allow a spa inspired  atmosphere for the consumer. By using these methods of application our customers can encounter a relaxing and sedative environment while still absorbing the medicinal components of the product. Research has shown when your body is in a calm state, it can be more receptive to rejuvenation and recovery. Here in this blog I will answer the questions many have ask about involving non supplement approaches to ailments.

 HOW DOES OMG’S RX LINE WORK USING A NON-INGESTIABLE APPROACH TO SOME OF THE MOST TROUBLESOME AILMENTS FACING AMERICANS? WHAT CAUSES THIS TYPE OF APPLICATION TO BE JUST AS EFFECTIVE AS PRESCRIBED MEDICATION? WHY CHOOSE THIS METHOD OF TREATMENT OVER MY DAILY REGIMEN? OHMYGOSH!! IT’S REALLY SIMPLE, TAKE A LOOK.

HOW? When essential oils are inhaled through the nose aromatic molecules are carried through the lining of nasal cavity to the limbic system of the brain. The limbic system in turn influences the endocrine system, the mood, metabolism and growth hormone secretion regulatory force and the autonomic nervous system, the electrical impulse controller for heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration and sexual response. When essential oils are applied to the skin, their healing components are absorbed into the bloodstream. From there they disperse to the specific organs and systems on which they work. Some of the oils components, carried via the bloodstream, can also pass through the blood-brain barrier to the limbic system in the brain, where they can influence the endocrine and autonomic systems as well.

WHAT? The chemical messengers from these volatiles have direct access to the brain and can go straight to work on the systems that moderate the body without the difficulty of swallowing or injection methods. Also natural extracts are more a concentrated composition therefore giving the body exactly what it needs without the additives and preservatives.

WHY? Whether inhaled or topically applied, essential oils and extracts can help bring about fundamental changes in physical, mental and emotional wellness by trigging and strengthening our bodies’ own natural defense responses. OMG’s Rx Line is built on terminating the ailment not suppressing the symptom.

Remember it’s never too late to START ADOPTING WELLNESS SHOPPING!
