Fun & Healthy Travel Tips
I used to do a lot of budget backpack travelling in Asia. Recently I find myself doing more hotel/city travelling in the USA.
Many of these travel tips come from my more recent travels but you may be able to apply these anywhere you are travelling and even in your daily life at home.
Below is a list of some of the neat things I have done and discovered that have made my travels more healthy, happy and enjoyable;

Recommended Product of the Month - THE CONTINUUM CONCEPT (book)
I read this book years ago and so much of it just makes common sense to me.
Now, as I am eagerly listening to all the great interviews on The Conscious Parenting Summit, I keep remembering about this book.
So, I thought I would highlight it in this month's e-zine.
Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. While there, her Western preconceptions of how to raise a child, were shattered. She learned by observing and living amongst a culture whose children were healthier, happier and more balanced and content than anything she had seen before.
She wrote the book, The Continuum Concept, to share with us what she learned... to show us practical ways to regain natural well-being for our children and for ourselves.
This is a great book that truly spoke to my heart and one that I highly recommend, not just for parents, but for everyone.

Tip of the Month - Clean Your Mattress
Here is a tip that I recently learned from a beautiful soul on Facebook.
When was the last time you cleaned your mattress? It is a part of our home that often gets overlooked when we clean our living space.
Here is an easy, natural and non-toxic way to go about this.
Pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a Mason jar or any glass jar with a lid and drop in 4 drops of lavender essential oil. (buy essential oils, here)
Put on the lid and shake the jar.
Using a kitchen strainer, sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress and let it sit for an hour or more.
Thoroughly vacuum the mattress.
This will take care of dust mites and other nasties that may have been collecting on your mattress. The baking soda helps to draw up any moisture and deep dirt while deodorizing and leaving the mattress smelling fresh and clean.
The essential oil is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-septic and is just plain great smelling.
We use this technique in our home often for our carpets and upholstery, and it makes perfect sense to use it on our mattresses too!
I lost track of who it was that originally posted this on Facebook, so I apologize for not crediting that person by name here ... Thank You very much for this beautiful sharing.
