More Healthy Gift Ideas, A Gift For You, and Sore Throat “Tea”

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on healthy holiday gift ideas that included Vibes Up because I love their products and they were having a 53% off sale on most items. Well, that special has ended, but those elves over there are up to it again with some amazing prices in the jewelry department that I wanted you to know about, along with a couple of other healthy gift suggestions. Plus, there’s a sore throat “tea” recipe at the end of this post that you may want to make and have on hand during the winter and beyond…..



1 # – Vibes Up is having a great sale on a lot of their jewelry, especially the sterling silver All-In-One items. No coupon code is needed; sale prices are already shown. Remember, the VU jewelry is about much more that “body adornment.” These pieces provide EMF/radiation protection, as well as grounding, balancing and energizing energies (vibes :-)). FYI, I just heard that after the first day of this jewelry special they are already sold out of some items, so act quickly if you’re interested.

# 2 – BerryBreeze™ is something I think no home should be without! I even think the government should provide a rebate or something for everyone who buys a unit because it does so much for our health (and food budget!) and the health of the planet. It more than pays for itself in the first couple of months. I love my little unit….looks like a mini R2D2 without arms and legs, and I’ve even been known to pull it from the fridge and use it to banish strong odors in the dining area and kitchen garbage area. Multi-purpose, indeed!

# 3 – Structured Water Units are another thing I think every home should have. All you need to do is read the previous posts I’ve done on these “handy dandy devices” to know I’m hooked, basically because they are multi-purpose and provide so many benefits. They are an investment, for sure, but, like the BerryBreeze™, more than pay for themselves in a short period of time.

# 4 – Salt lamps are a great gift because they look so attractive, plus also have so many health benefits. And you can never have too many! It would be good to have one in every room of the house, so you can’t go wrong giving one as a gift. And right now The Himalayan Salt Shop package deals are on sale, so you save even more than you normally would. A good way to get a lamp and/or candle holders for you and someone you love!

# 5 – Raw Food World is a great place to shop for gourmet, exotic or hard-to-find super healthy foods, snacks and other items. I have mentioned this site before in several posts, including the one on Dragon’s Blood. They offer some of the highest quality and healthiest items on the planet.

# 6 – The Five Rituals program would make a great gift for anyone wanting to incorporate The 5 Tibetans into their new year exercise routine. This series of 5 yoga-based poses/exercises is easy to learn, quick to do, and requires no special equipment, but offers major benefits to the body and spine. Self Development is having a sale on the program right now and it comes with some extra bonuses and a money back guarantee.

# 7 – Groupon has become one of my favorite places for great deals on all sorts of massage, chiropractic, skin care, gym/fitness packages and more. Many of the offers are set-up to where you can buy a coupon to use for yourself and one to give as a gift. Can you say double good deal?! AND Groupon has been offering up to 20% extra savings a couple of times lately when you purchase an already discounted local service or product. PLUS, Groupon is one of the stores in the portal, so if you have a free account there you can even earn cash back on Groupon purchases. How does it get any merrier than that??! I bought a coupon the other day from a healthy food delivery service that was worth $160 for $79, then got 20% off that, plus earned 6% cash back!

And here’s a little gift for you. Jim Oliver is offering a free MP3 download of a piece of music he just created. Very soothing to listen to, but it’s not just music. Jim creates sound/music that incorporates actual healing frequencies; you can learn more about what he does here. This piece is ideal for de-stressing and maintaining balance. Loop it and enjoy in the background as you work on holiday projects…. or on a blog post, as I’ve been doing just now. 🙂

And now for a recipe to make and keep on hand as a remedy for sore throats and chest colds…..

Winter Sore Throat Tea from Julie Taylor with Barbara Metts; a good way to get off antibiotics and start using natural medicines. Make sure you have some of this ready and on hand for sore throats and chest colds….makes about 2 cups

1. Two lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced
2. Two piece of ginger about the size of your pointer and middle finger together sliced into coin size pieces
3. Honey (about 1 cup or your preferences)
(You can also add ground cinnamon – about a teaspoon)

In a 12-16 oz. jar, combine lemon slices and sliced ginger. Pour honey (organic is best) over it slowly. It may take a little time to let the honey sink down and around the lemon and ginger slices. Make sure when the honey has filled in all the voids that there is enough to cover the top of the lemon slices. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a “jelly.” To serve, spoon jelly into a mug and pour boiling water over it.

PERSONAL NOTE: Manuka honey would be best, if you have it. And I highly recommend using organic lemons, ginger, and cinnamon, and structured water when you make the “tea.”

Makes about 2 cups

Stores in fridge 2-3 months.
