Float therapy is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and sleep aid. Floating is rest reduced environmental stimulus therapy. With any therapy, with regular use its benefits are enhanced.
Stress, tension and pain have formed over time and will take time to experience the greatest relief– luckily, floating therapy is a rejuvenating, relaxing, fun, and effortless way to do so!
Float therapy offers relief and benefits which like to say “the more you float, the better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first floating session. Though flotation is an effortless therapy, the body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.

SALT: Epsom Salts are great for your skin, hair, nails, and act as an exfoliate. 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts help prevent inflammation in your joints and muscles, treats sprains, strains, and sore muscles.
WEIGHTLESS: 1000 pounds of salt in 180 gallons of water creates a 30% salt solution, enabling the you to float effortlessly atop the water. This creates a deeply relaxing anti-gravity environment, as all tension can be dropped and safe to fall asleep. There are no pressure points on the body in this state. The spine naturally elongates and straightens, and the body undergoes the same regeneration process that transpires during sleep.
An hour of zero gravity and zero distractions will decrease the production of cortisone, a stress hormone, leaving us feeling refreshed and revived!! The brain enters the theta brain-wave state, associated with deep sleep and dreaming. As all external sources of distraction are removed, floating provides an extreme form of deep rest as the water feels like floating on cloud 9 or in outer space.
In the floatation environment, without the outside hustle of the world, people experience a profound calmness of mind. This allows for stress management, offers psychological benefits of a feeling of inner peace, and is a perfect complement to many alternative well-ness regimens.
This means that for anyone with stress induced or related diseases, such as hypertension, ulcers, heart disease, and many others, the flotation tank offers a mental solution to the physical symptom, and goes after the problem at its source. By combating the stress, which is at the root of these issues, flotation tanks help to heal the body and the mind. Even more abstract mental issues, such as depression, psychological issues, even PTSD, have been shown to be alleviated in the float tank environment due to shifts in brain chemistry.

Smoothies are popular in our house, even with kids who claim to not like many fruits, or yogurt.
When you are introducing your kids to smoothies, make sure the ingredients are to their liking. If they love chocolate, make a chocolate flavored smoothie with a dash of fruit. Make the idea of smoothies exciting, children love to be involved in the process. Let them make smoothies with fruits of their choice, on the condition that they will drink it. Guide them to make sure that the smoothie they make is edible. Lol.
You are lucky if your child likes eating vegetables. Otherwise, you can disguise the tastes of vegetables with fruits or yogurt. For example, if you want to add broccoli or spinach to the smoothie, you can add a strawberry, banana, or grapefruit to give it a sweet and tangy flavor. To make smoothies fun during summer, you can make Popsicles and add them into the smoothie.
The good news is that smoothies are extremely flexible. If your house doesn’t drink cow’s milk, you can always substitute with almond, coconut, rice or soy milk. You can use the yogurt of your choice and honey or agave are both great natural sweeteners.
The kids can choose the flavor of the juice – orange, apple, cranberry or even coconut water.
Here are a couple of our favorite super simple kid-friendly smoothies
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Makes one serving
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup orange juice
Drizzle of honey or agave
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined and serve.

1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 tablespoon honey or agave
Combine together and serve!
Last but not least is favorite
Blueberry Bliss Smoothie

1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup frozen blueberries

Smoothies for kids are healthy and easy to make and can be had any time of the day. You can serve them during breakfast or as evening snacks. The popularity of smoothies has encouraged businesses to come up with ready-to-go smoothies in different flavors. Dr. Smoothie, Suja, Happy Planet, Happy Monkey, and Innocent Smoothie For Kids are among the most popular smoothie brands in the market today. While it is fine to pick one of these packs, homemade smoothies from fresh fruits and vegetables turn out to be the best in the long run.
Fruity smoothies are a fun and healthy way to start your child’s day! It’s a power breakfast. The best part? They’re super-easy to create.
Spring is the prime time to enjoy what Mother Nature gave us, starting with some of the freshest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables available for the season.
Easter parties are one of the Spring’s first opportunities for an outdoor party. Easter is also a great time to celebrate family traditions or make some of your own, new traditions.
If you’re in charge of hosting an Easter party this year, we have a few party tip suggestions for the perfect party plan for your friends and family!
Decorate with Bright Colors
Although Easter colors typically include pastels, such as light pink, baby blue and light yellow, your party decorations do not have to follow this color palette. Using one bright bold Spring color, like hot pink, makes an energized, non-traditional color palette. If you have kids, they will excitingly want to dye Easter eggs in the days leading up to Easter. Stick with their enthusiasm and have them prepare some dyeable ceramic, or other non-perishable, eggs before the party. You will be able to use these eggs to decorate your house before the party and they can be used for a fun Easter Egg Hunt.
Host It Potluck Style
You can always count on family to help out with food for events! Instead of trying to prepare the entire meal, accept your family’s offer to add to the abundance of delicious dishes to help out. One way to successfully host a pot luck style meal is to provide the main course and drinks. Guests can then bring salads, side items, and desserts. Some of the stress of preparing a large meal will be off you and guests will get to enjoy family member’s special dishes.
Easter Egg Hunt
These Easter-themed games turn the holiday into a good old fashioned field day! Everybody loves an Easter egg hunt, but they really only last a couple hours before the kids are in need of another form of entertainment — not to mention some physical activity to burn off all the sugar from the candy available during the hunt. This Easter Sunday consider starting a new tradition by hosting a backyard Easter party/field day filling eggs with fun prizes, like stickers, movie tickets, or even cash! These fun games will ensure everyone (including the adults) will be having a blast until the sun goes down.
Kids always love a good old-fashioned sack race. Call it a bunny hop race and give each child an old pillowcase or sack to hop in.
Happy Easter weekend
Hemp is a deeply misunderstood plant, since it comes from the same family (cannabis sativa) as marijuana. While the plants do share many similarities, it is the differences that make hemp so special. The hemp plant has been used and cultivated by many civilizations worldwide since ancient times. People used to depend on the strong fibers of hemp to produce durable cloth in China and Turkestan. Hemp oil and seeds were also used as food.
Only later was hemp used as medicine in Asia, while it took many more centuries for high CBD hemp oil to be recognized for its medicinal properties in the West
The Differences between Hemp and Marijuana?
Just because two plants belong to the same family, it does not make them identical or even similar.
Hemp is cultivated so it contains far less THC than marijuana. Hemp is much taller when harvested than marijuana. The production of hemp does not violate the Controlled Substances Act.
The most important of these points is that hemp naturally produces only tiny amounts of THC, which is the psychoactive substance in marijuana that causes a high. On the other hand, hemp contains quite a lot of CBD, which is a legal, non-psychoactive cannabinoid. High CBD hemp oil offers almost as many health benefits as THC-rich medical marijuana (if not more).
The Health Benefits of CBD Hemp Oil
CBD has been shown by studies and continuing research to have many health benefits similar, if not identical, to those of medical marijuana products.
Among the must-know facts about cannabidiol are its potent health benefits:
Diminished Nausea (excellent for anyone undergoing chemotherapy)
Improved Appetite (fantastic for individuals who suffer and who are in recovery from an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulima)
Anxiety Reduction (helps diminish panic attacks and general anxiety)
CBD is simply CBD, no matter which cannabis plant you get it from. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the (more than 60) cannabinoids contained in most cannabis/hemp plants. The difference is in how much CBD every plant contains.
CBD Does it come in all forms?
It does such as CBD Hemp oil, edibles, liquids, capsules, tinctures, oils, flowers, concentrate, kief, plant extract, and contains no THC and more CBD. This is a reason to why CBD hemp oil is a superb choice.
How to Purchase CBD Hemp Oil
There are plenty of shops online that offer CBD hemp oil, and it is possible to find similar products in cannabis collectives and dispensaries in the states where they are legal.
The best way to ensure that your CBD hemp oil is pure and of potent quality a suggested source we recommend is Healthy Hemp Oil
How to Make Stuff with CBD Hemp Oil
CBD Creativity is the fun part! CBD supplements come in so many variations and products that you can experiment quite a lot in the way it is consumed. Ingesting oil is for a quick solution and It is smart to choose a flavored CBD oil too your liking for maximum enjoyment.
Vaping CBD oil with a special vape pen is another option if you prefer to inhale your cbd product in the form of mist.
Did you know that, CBD oil can be added to foods, smoothies, drinks and sweets as a flavor enhancer and an agent of healing for the mind, body, and soul?
