Get your chia on!
This weird little seed isn't popular amongst most families but it should be! I wanted to share with you today ALL of the A-MAAAZING benefits of chia seeds. I also provided ideas below of how you can incorporate these in your daily diet (and even the pickiest kiddos!) for all of the health boosts.

As an ambassador for Seeking Health, this post may contain affiliate links. I adore this company, take their products daily and stand behind their quality 100%.
As an avid fan of Seeking Health, their mission and the quality of their products, most of what you will find in my home when it comes to supplements and caring for our bodies outside of food will be the Seeking Health brand.
In this season my focus is on lowering inflammation, detoxing heavy metals, mold exposure and possible candida, repairing gut health, and boosting immunity. As many of my readers and clients are in need of the same support (as are most people), I've listed my current favorite lineup below (not all pictured above).
Already an affordably priced supplement line (which is a beautiful thing for allergen-free, non-gmo products that use no artificial colors or flavorings), I also have a coupon code for my readers and clients for their first order - just use NOSHNURTURE10 upon checkout for 10% off.
Without further adieu, here are my daily go-to's.
Also, again, I am not a doctor. I can not diagnose, treat or cure any disease. I am just passionate about natural health and supplementing our bodies with what we need. I am under the care of a naturopathic physician who helps guide me on what my body needs and I order accordingly.
Seeking Health Favorites - Summer 2019
One of my very favorite oils, I diffuse this nightly to promote relaxing, sound sleep for the hubs, baby and me. I also keep one with me to diffuse when we travel to promote relaxation and cut down on travel stress. It's also the perfect addition to a bath soak.
This oil alone makes the Starter Kit worth it. This premium oil has been sought after since ancient times and has a complex, earthy aroma. Best used when engaging in prayer, it can help you to feel centered and focused. It's also popular in skin care as it helps maintain radiant skin. And acts as a great healing oil for many ailments.
A must-have for any mamas with teething toddlers, this works great to reduce inflammation/swelling in the gums. It also works well for post - workout inflammation as a massage oil when blended with a carrier oil. You can add it to your daily moisturizer for healthier, younger looking skin.
Because, life. Stress Away is also a top on my list, not only for it's relaxation properties but I ADORE the lime and vanilla blend that's in this scent. It makes for a pleasant perfume when applied to wrists and as a bonus can help you combat daily stressors.
Peppermint can work wonders for digestive upset, and diffusing this while pregnant helped with morning sickness. I used this during labor and delivery as well to energize me. Blend with Eucalyptus for a spa-like bath experience.
MUST HAVE for cold and flu season, or anytime you or the family have the sniffles. A power blend of three Eucalyptus oils, as well as Spruce and Cypress with help alleviate congestion. Also a great energizing scent to diffuse or apply topically to enhance focus.
This is one of my favorites for cleaning and for keeping my home smelling fresh. Use it to make household cleaners, diffuse it for an uplifting scent, or use it in your conditioner for extra shine.
Aside from diffusing lavender nightly, I probably use this one the most. I've made household sprays to freshen laundry, furniture and heavy traffic areas, as it purifies and cleanses the air naturally, without chemicals. It's also a great one to use in the USB diffuser for neutralizing unpleasant car odors.
I call this one the King of Clean. Used to make household cleaners, beauty products and more, it's a must have for the winter season as diffusing it also helps to boost immunity to fight colds and flus.
My favorite gym bag companion, Panaway offers a nice, natural cool down for sore, tired muscles. When mixed with a carrier oil, its the perfect cooling massage oil or create a soothing bath when mixed with Epsom salt.
This spicy, rich blend is the perfect oil to diffuse at the end of a long day. The blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli oils helps the whole family to feel calm after a busy day. A good after dinner blend to diffuse before the bedtime routine begins.
