Up-cycling a single use item...

Hey DJ here and I just wanted to share a fun DIY project to upcycle a single use. I have coffee everyday and usually I get my cup of joe from a neighborhood coffee joint. For the past few weeks I decided to start making my coffee at home instead of going out. I started collecting my used coffee grounds each day and thought-- hey I can make a lovely body scrub instead of throwing these out. So that’s what I did! Here is a great way to combine creativity and consciousness together. 


Here’s what you will need:
Coffee grounds – approximately 1/4 cup, but you can use more if desired
Coconut oil – 1/2 cup softened
Small mixing bowl
Glass jar

 

Add coffee grounds to the coconut oil to a small mixing bowl and stir well. Make sure your coffee grounds are dry and your coconut oil is softened, that way they mix together nicely.
Set aside, but casually stir as it hardens for an even mix of coconut and coffee grounds. This part will take some time as you allow the mixture to firm up.
When the mixture is firm, scoop into a glass jar or preferred container. Make sure to store your scrub in a cool and dry place.



Enjoy your coco body scrub!

Simple Immunity Tea

There are a lot of people talking about what to do if you are feeling sickness coming on. There are still many sicknesses not associated with corona that are floating around and if you come down with something, chances are it's a simple sickness. However if you're worried one of the simplest things I've heard out there is sipping warm beverages every 20min, so I thought I'd give an easy immune boosting recipe.

I like to do this in a crockpot but you could also boil low and slow on the stove all day if you wanted. Try and get Ceylon Cinnamon sticks because they are generally a little better quality as well as healthier for tea consumption.

In a pot combine:
-2x Ceylon Cinnamon sticks
-1" Fresh Ginger sliced (you don't have to peel)
-Citrus peels. I will be using orange and lemon (because my neighbor has so many at the moment) 

        

Boil on low or leave in the crockpot overnight. The cinnamon is an immunity stimulator and ginger is an anti-inflammatory as well as immunity support. A new addition for me are the citrus peels which I learned about from @organic_olivia because it's anti-microbial and high in polyphenols. I just leave it in the crockpot on warm for several days and fill up a mug to sip on here and there.
