Winter’s for me in Asheville are a labor of love.
There is nothing quite like the dump of a good snow and strapping on those snow shoes for an incredible date with my husband out in nature.
Today, I want to share with you 3 of my favorite winter love tips.
1. Oiling my body daily-This ritual is fantastic and I enjoy placing my space heater in my bathroom after I get out of the shower for the sauna effect. My favorite lube is Coconut Oil. I apply it liberally to my head, body and face/feet. I then wrap up in my comfy robe and let it soak in. Coconut oil not only moisturizes my body but is helping with my short hair frizz! Remember to buy organic, unrefined and fair trade:) Spectrum makes a great one that is Lavender and Vanilla scent.
2. Bone Broth-I am just in love with Bone Broth and I even have my dog on it (both he and I suffer from Digestive Issues)! Bone Broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine, and proline. The collagen in Bone Broth will heal your gut lining and reduce intestinal inflammation. So, the next time you are making soup this winter opt for Bone Broth as your stock. You can homemake it or just buy it in the store. Pacifica makes a great Bone Broth.
3. Patagonia Capilene Base Layer Hoodie-I have been living in this shirt since I bought it. I highly recommend it. Besides Patagonia being a great company to support, this shirt is worth every dollar. I wear it under all my clothes and I am enjoying staying warm this winter. www.patagonia.com
