              Impress Your Guests! Holiday Entertaining at its Best!
Winter is known for bringing most of us inside and out of the cold, and one way to keep this exciting is to get creative involving all your senses.
Here are some ideas to get your imagination working with your sense of taste, smell and sight.
Cooking with essential oils is a delicate endeavour because there are only certain ones that are safe to ingest. It is very important to consult an aromatherapist before
taking any risks. Here is a safe recipe using Peppermint and Cinnamon essential oils.
Candy Cane Granola Bars: 1cup of Roasted Pumpkin seeds, ¼ cup of tahini, ½ cup of large flake oats, 1/4 cup of raw honey,1 tsp of vanilla,1 drop of the
Aromatherapist brand cinnamon, and 1 drop of the Aromatherapist brand peppermint. Melt the honey and tahini over medium heat, remove from the heat and
add vanilla and essential oils. Then add all the dry ingredients, smooth over a cookie sheet and put in the fridge for an hour.
Dazzle your guests when they walk into your home with an air freshener that has a warm winter feel. Everyone will want your secret!
Frosty Pine Air Freshener: 2 cups of Rose floral water (can also use distilled water), 40 drops of Aura Cacia Frosty Pine blend, a spray bottle. Add all the ingredients
together in the spray bottle. Shake before using. You can spray this holiday smell on any decorations, curtains, artificial tree, or just around the house.

SIGHT A quick decorating idea! In a glass container, put some raw cranberries in water with some beeswax tea lights. Once the flame has
melted the wax a bit add the Aura Cacia Frosty Pine blend or your favourite scent to the melted wax. You only need 2 or 3 drops, and the
                                 scent will go a long way.

 For some of us, Christmas is synonymous with baking.
 However, you are savvy about the perils of sugar consumption and its impact on
 your health and may be thinking twice about baking this year...
 Have you considered Baking With Agave Nectar? This plant-based sweetener made from several varieties of the
 agave plant has been used in Mexico for over a thousand years and has only come to our market in the 1990s.
 Agave nectar is produced without the use of chemicals, making it a clean, safe, unrefined alternative. The great
 news about agave nectar is the low-glycemic factor – an important consideration in the reduction of heart
 disease, diabetes, cholesterol, weight-management, and over-all health.
 Agave nectars generally have a glycemic index in the range of 19-39. Compare this to honey (G.I. of                                                                   whiTe
 35-64), pure maple syrup (G.I. of about 54), and table sugar (G.I. of 60-65). As with any sweetener,
 agave nectar should be used in moderation and with discretion by people under medical supervision.                                                      raspBerry CheeseCake
 Agave nectar is a little less vicious than honey and does not crystallize or solidify when cold. Also,
 because of its excellent moisture retaining properties, it is ideal for creating breads and baked goods                                          wiTh Lemon shorTBread CrusT
