Just in time for Christmas

I’m Czech and we spend basically entire December baking Christmas cookies and chasing our family away from the boxes full of those cookies… then Christmas comes and we are chasing everybody with plates full of cookies, making them eat it😂😂😂. I know, crazy. But we love it.

One of my favorite cookies are Gingerbread cookies. My auntie is the best when it comes to those. Hers are delicious and also absolutely gorgeous because she sure knows how to decorate them I don’t decorate mine cause I am not that good. To be honest, mine look like a 3 year old got hold of the frosting. I kid you not. But they are delicious and people always ask for more and ask for recipe.

I have tweaked the recipe using my beloved Young Living Essential oils. No need storing the spices anymore. So simple. I use Thieves EO and Ginger EO from the Vitality line (it’s marked for internal use). These oils are absolutely fantastic for our bodies and they taste great too

So here is my Thieves Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

250 g of All Purpose Flour

125 g of brown sugar

65 g of honey

1 large egg or 2 small ones

1/2 teaspoon of baking Soda

4 drops of Thieves Vitality Essential Oil

2 drops of Ginger Vitality Essential oil

1 extra egg, whisked, for eggwash

Method

Mix everything together very well and let the dough rest for about 12 h ( can be in the fridge up to 1 week).

Dust your working space and roll it out, cut your shapes as desired. Preheat oven to about 250C and bake on high for about 5-6 min till brown. When you remove them from the oven, rub it with egg wash right away. It will get the cookies nice and glossy.

Sometimes I like to use this Easy Bake Cookie Cutting sheet. It cooks 24 cookies at once, so it’s super easy and efficient. You can find it on Amazon.

Do you want to know more about Thieves Vitality and Ginger Vitality?

Thieves Vitality combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils and is fantastic to boost your family’s immunity and support whole body wellness. I love cooking with it or just put a drop into my coffee, into my hot wine, or make Thieves Honey Tea when we need little extra support.

Ginger Vitality essential oil food supplement is distilled from the root of the ginger plant and lends itself to a wide variety of applications. Used as both a flavouring in the kitchen and as a dietary supplement, Ginger+ is a distinct and versatile oil that’s great to keep on hand.

Add a drop to your tea for a nice, soothing hot drink. 

Dip a toothpick in Ginger+ and add it to your stir-fry for a zing of exotic flavour. 

Ginger+ makes a great dietary supplement! Add a drop to a vegetarian gel capsule to support normal digestion, natural defences, normal vascular health, proper functioning of the respiratory tract and assisting your muscle, bone and joint health. 

Add a spicy twist to a refreshing classic! Try adding a few drops of Ginger+ to a pitcher of homemade lemonade. 

Mix a few drops of Ginger+ with your marinades and salad dressings to add a warm, spicy note. 

Dilute 1 drop with 1 drop of carrier oil. Put in a capsule and take up to 3 times daily.

Oh Skin So Smooth

We all know that amazing feeling after Spa treatment when your skin feels and smells so good, you just want to keep sniffing your own arms😂😂😂

I love to replicate that feeling as much as possible so I create my own skin products from the finest ingredients. Only the best, right? Body Butter is one of my specialities. I have been hunting for the perfect texture for a while now. And I finally achieved it. That merengue like texture that stays soft even when it gets colder. So what did I use?

The ingredients are simple but bare in mind my recipe makes about ten 200 ml jars of Body Butter so if you’re making just for yourself, you have to do the math. But why not give Oily gifts to your loved ones instead of buying things from stores?

Smooth Skin Body Butter

500 g of Pure Shea Butter

250 g of Organic Coconut Oil

200 ml of Pure Jojoba Oil

30 drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

30 drops of Young Living Elemi Essential Oil

In a double boiler, first melt the Shea Butter as that takes the longest. Once almost melted, add the Coconut oil. When completely melted, take off the double boiler and add the Jojoba Oil. Mix well together so the ingredients combine

Let it harden. This was a challenge this time around because even though it’s November, the day was very warm and my mixture was not getting hard enough even hours after. I had to remove few things from my fridge and put the bowl there.

Once your mixture hardens, start whipping, using a mixer. I love my Kitchen Aid, because it does the job perfectly and I don’t have to hold it.

Getting the right stiffness of the mixture before you start whipping is crucial. If you let it harden too much, it won’t be smooth enough. Trust me, I’ve made that mistake once or twice.

At this point, add your essential oils. This time I chose Lavender and Elemi. At the end of this post I will explain why I chose these two oils.

placeholder://

After you added the essential oils, keep whipping for about 3-4 min. Scrape the sides of the bowl and whip some more. You want thick, smooth texture. Transfer in sterilized jars and close the lids.

So why did I use Lavender and Elemi Essential oils?

I love Lavender for my skin. It is very calming and has amazing scent. Not only that, it has proven antimicrobial properties, meaning it helps to prevent bacteria and fungi to grow. So when applied on skin, it helps with itchiness and may prevent infections. It is also used as a home remedy for burns and skin inflammation. I use Lavender after sun exposure because it helps my skin to recover. And I always have it handy when I’m ironing😜. Lavender helps with many different skin issues and is baby friendly, so you can use it for whole family.

Elemi is another very calming, beautifully smelling oil. It has great healing properties. When diffused, it helps relieve stress and anxiety. Using Elemi helps boost immunity system and supports respiratory health. For skin, it has calming and healing effects and acts as a tonic for our body.

So combination of these two essential oils in this Butter butter makes a beautiful, calming mixture.

Naturally, I only use and recommend Young Living Essential oils. I made a blog post about it so you can read it or send me a message and I’ll explain the Why’s

For The Love Of Salads

I love food, there is no doubt about it. I often wake up with something particular on my mind and I rush to the kitchen to make it.

That day I woke up wanting salad. But not just any salad. I knew I wanted cauliflower in it for the crunchiness and coriander avocado combo for the flavor. Hmmmm, what dressing? My eyes fell on some grapefruits and I knew what I’m gonna make!

So I grabbed all the ingredients (half an iceberg lettuce, cucumber, mixed salad leaves, coriander, avocado, few tomatoes and 1/4 cauliflower and just chopped it all

Putting everything in a bowl and setting aside, I got on making the dressing

In a separate bowl I mashed together slice of red and white grapefruit and few cubes of pineapple with spoon of olive oil.

I mashed it really well to get as much juice out of it as possible, then added 1 drop of Young Living Black Pepper Essential oil and 2 drops of Young Living Lime Essential Oil.

I love adding Essential oils to my food. They taste great and give my food extra layer of flavors. I could have used Grapefruit Essential oil instead of the fruit but I wanted the juice as well, not just the flavor, so this time I opted using the fruit. Also, I bought precut fruit bowl and I wanted to use it up.

Adding Essential Oils to food has many benefits, it has amazing flavor but also benefits our digestion. I love the flavor of Black Pepper Essential oil. It’s my go to for most of my dressings.

After mixing it really well together, I added some salt and poured it over the salad, tossing all together.

And then I just sat in my garden and enjoyed the beautiful weather and delicious salad. Oh yum!

Cooking with Oils, Quick and Easy

Sharing my Oily Love makes me happy. It’s one of those things that come naturally to me I think. Well, talking about food and making food… go figure

Today, I held a class for my Tokyo friends. It is fun opportunity to catch up with my oily sisters, talk about life, love, food and oils. Naturally. Since the cooking is also about oils. Why to cook with oils and how, to be precise.

So why we should use Essential oils and not the conventional herbs and spices? For one, the oils do not get bad. When you buy a package of spices, once you open it, air gets to it, they start loosing flavor. In Japan’s humidity, it tends to get moldy. But not only that. By drying up the herb, it looses 95% of its therapeutic value. And that is what bothers me. For me, food is not just a way to stuff our tummy full, food is a way of life, medicine and comfort. So I want my food to be delicious, healthy and health beneficial.

This is where my Young Living Essential Oils come in. And I am stating very clearly, I only use Young Living Essential oils. No other company in the world gives you the guarantee that their oils are pure, therapeutic and organic. Only Young Living has the Seed to Seal Guarantee and that is something you HAVE to require from your oils. Because if you do not know where your oils are coming from, how can you use them in your food? You should not.

Using Essential oils in your food has many many benefits. Essential oils, if stored properly, do not have shelf life, they do not get bad. So you do not run out of spices (unless you have not finished your bottle of course). Little goes a long way, so each bottle can help you prepare many, many dishes. And their most important benefit is their therapeutic power. They aid digestion, help to keep your gut healthy and running, preserve your food and much much more. They taste great and give my food a boost of flavor.

Today I prepared 3 coursed Lunch Meal consisting of Goulash Soup, Honey Mustard Salmon or Chicken over vegetable salad and Fruit Sorbet. In all our dishes we used Essential oils.

We started off with a shot of NingXia Red to boost our energy. NingXia Red is fantastic source of antioxidants and really boosts immunity. On a rainy day like today NingXia comes really handy for extra energy too. Then we went on preparing the Sorbet.

DSC_0132

Fruit Sorbet (4 servings)

What you need

400 g of frozen fruits (can be fresh fruits too) we used mango, blueberries, mixed berries, banana and watermelon

2 tbsp of honey

2 tbsp of almond milk (you can use full cream or coconut milk instead or just water)

4 drops of each Citrus Fresh EO and Jade Lemon EO

 

Blend together, pour into container and freeze.

Here is where I always point out that for adults fun parties you can substitute the milk with tequilla or white rum to create frozen cocktails. They are so good! In that case, add some ice when blending it. Tastes divine. Serve with some Mint Leaves.

DSC_0154

Once the sorbet was in the freezer, we moved on to marinate our protein. We had it chicken to salmon half and half ratio.

Marinade (4 servings)

2 tbsp of olive oils

2 tbsp of honey

2 tbsp of wholegrain mustard

2 tbsp of yellow mustard

1 tbsp of spicy mustard like dijon or japanese karashi

salt

1 garlic, minced

2 drops of Orange, Lemon and Black Pepper EO

Salmon Fillets or Chicken Breast

 

First mix all the ingredience except the garlic and the protein. Keep half of the mixture for Salad Vinaigrette. Add garlic to the remaining mixture and coat your protein in it. Cover with foil and let marinate.

DSC_0156

 

Now we moved on to prepare our Goulash Soup. This soup recipe is a combination of my tradition Czech Goulash Soup, Time management and Essential oils. Why I say that is that usually the soup is made from beef chunks, but for my cooking classes I use the minced meat version. It does not take long and it is very delicious too. Another reason why I prefer to make it from minced meat is  that my son prefers it that way. It is easier for him to eat.

DSC_0158

Goulash Soup

1  onion

1 tbsp of sweet paprika

1-2 cloves of garlic

2 potatoes

1 carrot

1 tbs of flour

350 g of minced meat (best if mix of pork and beef)

Salt

Vegetable oil of choice

1.5 l of water or stock

Stock cubes optional

Marjoram, Black Pepper and Oregano EO

 

Sweat the onion with little bit of oil, add garlic, paprika and fry for a minute. Cut your potatoes into small cubes and slice the carrot. Add minced meat to the pot until it browns a bit, add little flour and mix it well. Then add your vegetables and pour water over it. If using stock cubes, add some. Use salt to taste and let it simmer for about 30 min. Check if all your vegetables are soft.

(If you want to do vegetarian version, replace your meat with mushrooms such as Oyster mushrooms and add those once your potatoes and carrots are soft and just boil for extra 5 min)

Mix your EO with little bit of water in a sprayer bottle and spray your bowl of soup with it. Why? You do not want to cook your essential oil. The heat destroys the therapeutic properties. Take your soup off the heat and serve before you spray your oil mixture on it. DSC_0116

Now that the soup was ready, we prepared Mixed Salad from variety of greens, some yellow bell peppers and tomatoes and made the Honey Mustard NingXia Vinaigrette. We took the remaining Honey Mustard mixture we had and added a shot of NingXia and 2 more drops of Jade Lemon EO and 1 drop of Black Pepper EO. Mixed it well, then sprinkled over the salad.

DSC_0122

In a pan, we grilled our protein and placed it over the salad. Served together with the soup and the sorbet. It was delicious, filling and healthy.

Does Beer Belong To Our Beauty Routine?

In my country, Czech republic, Beer is part of our life. We produce the best beer in the world and we love it. We are number 1 in beer consumption per capita. It is cheaper to buy beer in a restaurant then buy soft drink! Yes! It’s just the way it is. Czech people love their beer and are not afraid to use it. For everything and anything.

best-czech-beers-u1

My mom has few amazing recipes for beer marinated meat dishes, I marinate ribs in beer before BBQ. It’s delicious and juicy. Manufaktura, Czech cosmetic company, has entire line of beer cosmetics that is based on Czech beer tradition and they are popular around the world. First notes of using beer in cosmetics in Czech dates to 10th century! You can also find Beer Spa in many cities in Czech republic. Yumm

Beer is a unique source of vitamin B, minerals and polyphenols. It helps to regenerate skin and to protect it from outside damage.  When it comes to hair, it helps hair to de-tangle after washing, gives it extra shine and protects and regenerates the hair. Basically in Czech, Beer is an answer to everything.

Thanks to my Czech friends, I was offered the opportunity to share my love for healthy beauty routine on Japanese Tv Channel 1, Asa Ichi. They wanted to show how you can use beer, besides just he obvious, drinking it. The show was fun and interesting, they cooked Beer Rice, Beer Pancakes and Doughnuts, used beer for cleaning the house and also showed beer bath and my own beer hair care. They came to our house for a fun shoot.

First of all I did simple Hair Beer Rinse. It is very traditional hair routine in Czech. Our grandmas did not buy expensive hair products yet had beautiful and strong hair. After washing your hair, simply rinse your hair with aprox 500 ml of beer and massage it into your scalp. Let it work for about 5 min then rinse with cold water and dry. Your hair will be smooth, shiny and the color brighter. If you do this regularly, your hair will grow stronger and if you have dry scalp, it will help with it too.

The next thing I showed them was Hair Spray for volume. This one I make in small quantity, so I can use it up in 2-3 uses. Approx 100 ml of beer, 3 drops of Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood Essential oils, Mix together and spray on your wet hair. Blow Dry and style as usual. Your hair will hold in place, no need to buy hair spray from the store, which is full of chemicals! Beer and Essential oils together will keep your hair in place, while giving it nutrients and vitamins it needs. Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood are my favorite oils when it comes to hair and I use them all the time. They help to regenerate hair to grow faster, stronger and shinier. My hair is so strong now that I use my oils regularly! What I like best about this spray is that I do not need to use store bought spray that has way too many chemicals in it, yet it does the job just as well and also makes my hair healthier. And my hair smells amazing! It is pure pleasure to use this spray. After using the spray put the remaining liquid in the fridge. Honestly best to make just small quantity. Also note I only use Young Living Essential Oils because they are the only company that offers Seed to Seal Guarantee and I know my oils are the best quality. That for me is super important. If you already go the extra step to use natural product, make sure your oil is also 100% therapeutic grade and has not been tinted. You can read on my article to learn more about Why Young Living

essential-oils-hair

There is much more uses for Beer when it comes to Healthy Hair. Need a Hair Mask for Damaged Hair? Whisk 1 egg and 30 ml of Beer, 3 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil and 3 drops of Clary Sage and put on washed hair. Massage into your scalp and let is work its magic for about 15 minutes, covered with foil and warm towel. Then wash off. You will love your hair.

Laundry Much???

I don’t always do laundry but when I do…. oh who am I kidding? I do laundry ALL THE TIME! Family of three, nine year old kid, there is always laundry!

But did you know that how you wash your clothes, what’s in your laundry detergent, influences your health? Your detergent might smell amazing, but it might be the reason why your skin is irritated. Fragrances, preservatives, dyes, and other chemicals in laundry detergent can cause rashes in both children and adults. Laundry detergents contain lots of potentially irritating ingredients. And because your entire body comes in contact with your laundry, you can have reaction all over. Hmmm. Not me. Why?

Few years back I decided to be more careful what I use for our family. As a mother and wife, it is my responsibility to choose the right products we use at home. And I take it seriously.

So I decided to join Young Living Company and go as much toxic chemicals free as possible. No fabric softener and “clean” Laundry soap was part of the whole Ditch&Switch process.

Watch video how I made my Laundry Soap and Stain Remover Spray and recipes are below

https://youtu.be/ynbNKci2r7c

Today I would like to share my recipe for Stain Spray and Liquid Laundry Detergent. Not only both of them are non toxic, they are also very effective, can be done in a minute and very cost effective. Instead of Fabric softener, I add white vinegar to my load and use Wool Dryer Balls with Essential oils for beautiful smell.

Stain Spray

Ingredients

100 ml of peroxide

50 ml of Thieves Dish Soap

1 capful of Thieves Household Cleaner.

Mix together in sprayer bottle and use as needed. When spraying the stain, let it work for about 2-3 min before you wash.

Cost breakdown

Peroxide 99¥, Thieves Dish Soap 292 and 52¥ for Thieves Household Cleaner. So your amazingly smelling, non toxic stain spray costs you 443¥ !!! That’s nothing comparing to about 1300¥ for store bought stain removers that are full of dangerous ingredients.

(500 ml of peroxide costs 494¥, Thieves Dish soap costs 2133¥ for 365 ml and Thieves Household Cleaner costs 3402¥ for 426 ml)

Laundry Detergent

Ingredients

1/4 cup of washing Soda

1/4 cup of baking Soda

3.5 l of hot water

1/4 cup of Thieves Laundry Soap

2 capfuls of Thieves Household cleaner

First, dissolve the washing soda and the baking soda in the hot water. Mix well. Then add the Thieves Laundry Soap and Thieves Household Cleaner and again moc well. Voila, your detergent is ready!

Cost breakdown

Washing soda 68¥, Baking Soda 15¥, Thieves Laundry Soap 588¥ and Thieves Household Cleaner is 104¥. Making this 775 per 3.5 l of detergent. It makes 27¥ per load if I use approx 1/4 cup of the mixture!!!

(Washing soda costs 990¥ per 726 g, Baking Soda is 1858 per 6 kg, Thieves Laundry Soap is 4455¥ per 946 ml, Thieves Household Cleaner is 3402¥ for 426 ml.

All prices are calculated with members price. Retail price is more so it’s very beneficial to become a member.
