Améo Living Series: Getting Physical

The following is one in a series of practical Améo Essential Oil uses from healthy lifestyle expert Karen A. Jensen

It's summer! So you begin to add extra activities to your life. Besides your regular workouts you may find yourself swimming, hiking, eating, traveling, camping, eating (again), biking, sightseeing and so much more. You may be with youngsters or just relaxing in the hammock in the yard. No matter where summer takes you remember to take your Améo Essential Oils.

Adding Améo Life Unlimited to your workouts, massaged into the soles of your feet as you put on your gym shoes or diffused in your exercise space. AGX Energy can support adrenals and other systems that get stressed during times of increased activity. If you choose to add a drop or two to your workout drink try rubbing those drops into a slice of lemon. This facilitates absorption of nutrients as well as helping to diffuse the oil throughout the drink rather than allowing it to separate.

Keep Ripstix Supplements Hydrate sachets on hand and Améo Tangerine for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Muscle Mend is great for those sore spots but is also good rubbed on the soles of the feet— especially when little-ones get a little stuffy. (Wintergreen with your Muscle Mend (1 Wintergreen to 2-3 Muscle Mend) makes a wonderful blend more appealing to little ones as it smells just like Root Beer! No kidding!)

Stay in balance, even in stressful moments, both physical and emotional stress, with Améo Gentle Repose, which can be diffused in the car whether you are road tripping or just running errands.

Pure Tranquility with a drop of Orange may help you unwind after a busy summer day. Mix the oils into your bath salts or diffuse it in your bedroom.

Take a walk in the summer evening and remember to take your ProShield, it is good for people and less attractive to insects.

If your summer takes you to the beach remember that sun, sand and salt water can take a toll on skin. The use of AGX Skin and GenM Moringa Silk Hand Creme can be just what you need.

When setting the table include Lemon Pepper made with your Améo Lemon Oil.
Lemon Pepper Seasoning Salt 
Zest of 3 to 4 fresh lemons
2-3 tablespoons freshly cracked rainbow peppercorns
1 tablespoon sea salt
1-2 drops Black Pepper Oil
3-5 drops Lemon Oil

Preheat oven to lowest setting. In a bowl, combine lemon zest and black pepper. Cover metal pan with foil and spread mixture evenly in pan. Allow to bake until zest is completely dried, about 26-30 minutes. Transfer lemon pepper mixture to a bowl. Add oils to salt then mix salt to the pepper blend, 1 tsp. at a time until you have the right balance to fit your taste.

Grilled Garlic & Ginger Chicken

Grilled Garlic and Ginger Chicken It’s grilling season filled with weekends and holidays spent outdoors with friends and family, sharing meals and good times. When it comes to grilling it’s just as easy to keep the menu lean as it is to make the menu fattening. The recipe that I have for you today is a prime example of a flavorful, lean chicken that is best eaten hot off the grill! 

What you pair your grilled chicken with will make all of the difference as to whether or not your meal stays lean or becomes fattening. Avoid bread, potatoes and pastas - instead stick with grilled veggies, fresh green salads and fruit for dessert. 

Servings: 4 

Here’s what you need...
  • 1 ½ Cup Sake
  • ½ Cup Coconut Aminos (or light soy sauce)
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Palm Sugar (or pure maple syrup)
  • 2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic- minced
  • 3 inch Piece of Ginger, thinly sliced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 LBS Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs, trimmed 
  1. Preheat the grill to medium high. 
  2. Combine the sake, coconut aminos, coconut sugar, olive oil, garlic and ginger in a large ziplock bag. Generously salt and pepper the chicken thighs and add to the bag of marinade. Seal the bag and place in the fridge for 1 to 4 hours, turning once.
  3. If you're into a essential oils like I am, try your favorite Ameo Essential oil in this dish.
  4. Grill until the chicken thighs are cooked through. Enjoy!
Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 493 calories, 10g fat, 9g carbohydrate, 3g fiber, and 56g protein.

Do you have high blood pressure?

Do you have high blood pressure? 

Statistically, many people have elevated blood pressure due to the lifestyle that they live. Change is nearly impossible because people do not understand how behaviors work. Simply omitting something that you've been doing for a lifetime makes one feel deprived. Then they give up and go back to the old way of doing things and they're right back to where they started.  Think add vs subtract. However, we have to add the right things.

From the medical perspective, medication is given to treat one's individual symptoms, but the origin of the cause is rarely addressed.  I refuse to believe that many health issues cannot be corrected with proper nutrition, daily exercise and healthy lifestyle choices.

I too had high blood pressure and a few other things going on. Like many, I have a history of blood pressure issues in my family.  At my first check my BP was 162/99.  The nurse made me lay down to take it again and it was still 132/89.  

My Dr wanted me to take some BP medicine to get things back in check. Many just go with what their doctor prescribes because that's all they know.  And we're supposed to trust our Dr, Right?   I just wanted to look at it from a different perspective.

That's where I was introduced to Moringa Oleifera.  If you've never heard of it, and many haven't, you should definitely do a little bit of research and look into it.

Zija International offers many Moringa based products, but the main nutritional that I use daily is the SuperMix.  2 months after taking the SuperMix I had hey recheck of all my blood work. My BP was 112/80 and my resting heart rate was as low as it's ever been. And its still been down.  

I realize no products are intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Zija's products included.  

However, I know that by adding 90+ verifiable, cell-ready vitamins, minerals, vital proteins, antioxidants and omega oils is a good thing for my body. Giving the body the right nutrients that it needs gives it the opportunity to self regulate itself and create optimum health.
