Plenty of Honey in my Cupboard (Part 2 of 3)

How to get honey in the cupboard and things that are real honey instead of fake honey

  • Real honey: touch. Sit with your partner and massage his hands, feel happy about the physical touch time. Let your partner touch your back and your hands and spend time just talking and touching and hugging
  • Real honey: conversation. Spend time ringing and speaking to friends, past and present. Spend time speaking your heart and listening to them speak their heart. Listen.
  • Real honey: exercise. Spend time building your muscles, strength, balance, flexibility, and cardio ability.
  • Real honey: rest and sleep. You need to rest and sleep each night. Ask for vitality and calm productivity. At least one day per week should be at home pottering around and resting/cleaning etc.
  • Real honey: nature. Spending time outside in nature is physiologically good for us.
  • Real honey: creativity. Spending time doing creative stuff is real honey. This could include creative things which you can use to make money.
  • Real honey: mindfulness and inspiration. I like James Clear, Robin Sharma (the less egoic videos), Thich Nhaht Hanh, Brene Brown, Paula Pant, Andrew Hallam, Bill Gates and many more. I also like to meditate and be mindful.
  • Real honey: Kindness. When you do nice things for someone you feel good.
  • Real honey: virtue. Do things that are virtuous and you feel good. If in doubt, read an Old Fashioned Girl Louisa May Alcott or Tell me if the Lovers are Losers by Cynthia Voigt.
  • Real honey: savings. Having savings in the bank is real good honey. I don’t feel right if I don’t increase my savings by a little each week (increased by around $33 this week to a total of nearly $46k).
  • Real honey: satisfying food. Yes this includes animal products for me, also vegetables, fruits, vinegar, fermented foods, and sweet forbidden carbs.
  • Real honey: supplements. I take lots of supplements, and they help me feel healthy and safe.
  • Real honey: learning and teaching. This is the best.
  • Real honey: charity. Give to charity. Volunteer. It feels damn good to build up the community that supports you. And pay your taxes. We all like the Doctors to be paid, the sewer to run, the curbs to be maintained, and the poor people to have income.
  • Real honey: confront your demons and learn about hard stuff. A book on my current to-read list: http://www.katemanne.net/down-girl.html

We have an awesome massager that originally came from The Body Shop

Straight after massage, we usually release lots of endorphins with dry brushing.

Dry Brushing may:

  • Open pores
  • Exfoliate the skin
  • Stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Increase circulation
  • Help aid relaxation
  • Be bad for people with very sensitive skin


A dry brush is like a hair brush for your skin.

Finally we take out the Lavendar Moisturiser

Lavender seems to have:

  • Antibacterial effects
  • Antifungal effects
  • Antianxiety effects
  • Antidepressant effects
  • Some pain relieving effects


Cheap Cheats Recipe for Lavender Moisturizer:

¼ Cup sorbolene cream with or without glycerine or other plain moisturizer

Between 2-10 drops of lavender oil as preferred

Between 2-10 drops of other essential oil/s as preferred

  • Mix carefully

  • Store in a container with an air-tight lid, preferably screw top
  • Avoid extreme temperatures
  • Spot test thoroughly before applying
  • Discontinue use if irritation occurs and/or add less or different essential oils next time
  • This is a really fun project, you can use old moisturizer containers to make your own yummy smells.
  • You and your husband can make your own different yummy smells.
  • Also makes a nice gift if you put it in a lil jar for Christmas etc with a bow and some decorations.
