"Breakfast Pudding"

Posted 12/14/11

Many of you have heard Cindy talk about this in classes, and we are often asked for this recipe. It is easy to make, and quite delicious! This recipe is best made prior to going to bed and refrigerated over night and eaten in the morning.

Ingredients and Supplies:

1 rounded Tablespoon Psyllium husks
2 rounded Tablespoons Organic Plain Yogurt
1/2 teaspoon Probiotics*
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Antioxidant Juice (more if desired)
Chopped Organic Fresh Fruit (optional)

Mix the first 4 ingredients together, then add the fruit if desired.

It is important that adults consuming Breakfast Pudding drink at least 8 8 ounces glasses of water (a miniumum of 64 ounces taken throughout the day) everyday. If water intake is very low, constipation can happen.

For Children:
Ages 2-6 - 1 TEASPOON psyllium, 2 TEASPOONS yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon Probiotics, 1/4 - 1/2 cup antioxidant juice, and fruit as desired. Water intake of at least 5 servings of 4-6 ounces every day.
Ages 7-12 - 2 TEASPOON psyllium, 1 Tablespoon yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon Probiotics, 1/2 - 3/4 cup antioxidant juice, and fruit as desired. Water intake of at least 6 servings of 5-7 ounces every day.



Notes:

We are particularly fond of the Probiotic brand "All Flora" by New Chapter. This can be ordered on-line at: www.essenceoforganics.com. They are located in South Carolina, and have good prices and fast delivery.






Room Sprays

Very easy!

Ingredients and Supplies:

4oz PET Dark Colored Plastic Bottle with Fine Mist Spray Top
1 oz Witch Hazel
3 oz Distilled Water
40 TOTAL drops of the Essential Oil(s) of your choice

Pour 1oz of the Distilled Water and the 1 oz of Witch Hazel into your bottle. Add to that 20 drops of your essential oil(s). Cap the bottle and shake, then sniff it. You can add more essential oil as needed. When you are satisfied with the strength of the solution, add the remaining 2 oz of Distilled Water. Affix a label to your bottle with the recipe! Shake before using.



Notes:

If you are making a spray for a child's room, be sure to check out our page on Aromatherapy for Children to be sure the essential oils are being used appropriately.

Why Distilled Water? Distilled water doesn't have the chlorine, floride and other chemicals that are found in tap water. These chemicals mix with the essential oils, producing unknown chemical reactions.

Why Witch Hazel? The Witch Hazel helps to emulsify the essential oils with the water.

Tip: I learned from personal experience to note the recipe BOTH on the bottle label, AND in a notebook! I took a room spray in my luggage on an airplane trip, and, the air pressure caused it to leak, smearing my lovely recipe label into an illegible mess!

This easy to make recipe makes about 18 tubes.

Ingredients and Supplies:

2oz Shea Butter, Yellow
˝ oz Jojoba Golden oil
˝ oz Beeswax
2 drops Honey
15 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
10 drops Orange Essential Oil
3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

18 Lip Stick Tubes


In a double boiler, carefully melt the Shea Butter using low heat. When the shea butter is melted, add the Jojoba oil and honey, and then the beeswax. When the beeswax is completely melted, stir in the essential oils.



Pour your mixture into lip balm tubes (you need to work fast here!), and put them uncapped into the freezer. (Tip - rubber band your tubes together, they will stand upright in a plastic bowl.) They should stay in the freezer until completely hard, which could be 5-10 minutes. Then, remove, cap, and enjoy!
