CAROLINE’S DÓTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS WELCOME TO OUR WEEKLY COLUMN I am a dóTerra Wellness Advocate and I started my journey with dóTerra essential oils a couple of months ago. Since then, these powerful essential oils have changed my mindset, my mood and has had an uplifting effect in our family home. The dóTerra essential oils are a natural solution to care for our family’s health needs and improve our Wellbeing. They can help support us in many of the following that we experience from time to time: • Anxiety Issues • Digestive Support • Sleep, Muscle Care • Stress, Allergies • Energy Boost • Skin Support • Immunity and so much more. The oils can be used in three different ways; Topically- massaged on to our skin with or without a carrier oil, Aromatically – placing a few drops into a cold water diffuser and diffusing in our homes, classrooms, offices, salons or places of work and Internally – by adding them to your favourite food and drinks, or simply by taking one drop under the tongue daily. THE SCENT OF CHRISTMAS! Although we may not have a very cold and white Christmas this year, we can still create the festive mood with our essential oils and here are a few ideas on how you can fill your home with that holiday joy scent! dóTerra’s Peppermint essential oil is found in many of the candy canes and cookies that you will have in your home this Christmas and is lovely when diffused in the mornings with Wild Orange, as it will provide you with a boost of energy and give you that little pick-me-up feeling. When Peppermint is diffused with Grapefruit during the night, it is can be greatly beneficial to deter headaches and migraines if one has overindulged in the mulled wine the night before! Rosemary and Thyme are also two great oils to use and are commonly used in many festive dishes in the kitchen. These oils have a warm, herbaceous scent and will be sure to set the festive mood right in your home. The warmth and homey scent of dóTerra’s Cinnamon oil is a must to be diffused in your hallway or sitting room this Christmas and I would recommend adding one drop to your hot water or tea and drink it slowly during the day. Cedarwood has a beautiful grounding aroma that will evoke feelings of wellness and vitality, which is most important to have over the Christmas holidays and I will look forward to diffusing this oil in the mornings before the rest of the house awakens for the day. We look at dóTerra’s Clove essential oil and while it has been used for many years for gum and oral hygiene, its warm and woody aroma is very energising. Clove oil contains powerful antioxidant properties and supports our cardiovascular health when taken internally. It also adds a spicy flavour when added to any dish or dessert.

GREETINGS FROM LISTOWEL TIDY TOWNS

While Covid 19 made changes in the lives of many it certainly didn’t intefer with the pride and respect we the people of Listowel have for our beautiful North Kerry Town and what it has to offer. As we all adapt to this very strange normal and our town begins to open the business people of the town have to be highly commended for their lovely Xmas displays, creating their very own Winter Wonderland. As PRO and on behalf of the Listowel Tidy Towns group I would like to wish all our sponsors, KCC, scheme workers, schools, supporters and all those down through the years who have made Listowel the town it is today. a very, very happy, holy and peaceful Xmas to you all. As we leave one year and head into a new one, we the Listowel Tidy Towns group look forward to seeing you all in January as we start afresh, recruit more members and continue to do what needs to be done. In the meantime, look after each other…Stay Safe & Keep Well.

A shortlist of three collections will be revealed in March 2021 and the winner will be announced at the Opening Ceremony of Listowel Writers’ Week on the 2nd June 2021.

Ballydonoghue GAA Christmas Card Initiative 2020 has been a difficult year for most proving how important community spirit is. Ballydonoghue GAA have embraced this and as part of our Healthy Club initiative. We decided to connect with the wider community. The focus of this was to connect the school children of the parish with their neighbours and fellow parishioners including those residing in Nursing Homes. In carrying out this work we also supported the Hospice Christmas card appeal. The Christmas cards were bought directly from Kerry Hospice Foundation to support their much needs services. In planning this initiative both Coolard and Lisselton Nation Schools facilitated the younger members of the community to connect with the senior members of our locality. Ballydonoghue GAA was recognised at an award ceremony in Croke Park in October 2019 for their on-going community initiatives.

SAN RITA WELLNESS

Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column… We are almost there....but not quite yet!! Have you still got a hold of the reins?

You probably are wondering what we mean when we ask you this. It can be very easy now to say to yourself “Ah sure its Christmas” and letting go of the reins now can have consequences that you may regret by January. Having that mindset can also feel like you are giving yourself permission to over indulge, be less active and less motivated. Remember Christmas can be as long or as short as you want it to be. Be prepared especially if you have been working hard on your weight loss and wellness the past few months. As we know for many of us weight goes on a lot faster than it comes off. SHOPPING Have you avoided the temptations of the festive season so far? Christmas is probably the biggest “Choc Fest” of the year. We know it could be chocolates for one person, Christmas cake for another. We all have our own weakness at this time of the year. When we go to the supermarket to do the shopping bear in mind what goes into the trolley ends up on the table. So ask yourself do you really need to buy it this week , or can you wait another week. Tips : Write out a list (for you) | What do you need (not want) Why are you buying it (just in case)? | Who are you really buying it for? When do you actually really need it? Will it be tempting for you knowing that it is in the house? Where is the best place to store or hide it? Think ahead about how you would like to feel in January with your weight and well being. Rather than deciding to eat and drink all round you, or eat and drink nothing, either way could end up leaving you feeling miserable. So the thing is to find a way that means you are not depriving yourself , but yet still have a hold of the reins. Answer: Everything in moderation !! On average many people do gain weight over Christmas and that’s probably not surprising, but bear in mind the things you can do to help limit the damage. After all it’s not the Christmas dinner that causes the most damage to our weight, it’s the mindless eating. Limit your treats, for example don’t leave the box of sweets sitting in front of you while watching TV. Pick up a nice selection of fruit in your shopping trolley i.e. stewed apple with low fat custard Choose some nice outfits from your wardrobe to wear over Christmas and feel great Go for walks in the evening and admire all the wonderful lights. The choice is yours but by being mindful of your decisions now can make a difference to the end result For extra support and for weekly accountability check us out on Facebook San Rita Wellness or sanritawellness. ie for details of our “At Home Service” or our “One to One Service”. Give us a call on 087 6718377 or 087 1012174 We would like to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Sandra and Rita

When a little baby boy was born in a stable in Bethlehem about 2000 years ago there was no earthly multi media presence there to announce His arrival. There was no carefully choreographed formal reception with world dignitaries and royals to be the first to witness this incredible event. There was no fanfare, no celebrations, no pomp and ceremony as was fitting for the One who had come to save mankind. The packaging was very simple and very humble. A tiny baby born in a stable, resting in a manger from which the animals ate, of poor parents, whose only mode of transport was a donkey.....what promises could He fulfill?

So in a few short weeks’ time, when the tinsel ,the lights, the glitter the glamour, the broken promises and broken dreams lay amidst the pile of discarded packaging He will still reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I will still praise this One, True and Living God because “You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship You.” Nehemiah 9:6 Have a Blessed and Happy Christmas Yours sincerely. Bridie (Dillon)Hartney
