Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice is upon us this Thursday, June 21st. There are several different ideas surrounding the meaning of the solstice depending on culture, religion, and scientific evidence.

In some cultures the belief is that the solstice is a time of renewal and we love that concept. As we move through the ages we grow by trying new things and creating new habits.

At Humfeld Chiropractic & Nutrition Center we believe in the idea that change is good, however challenging it may be, like: changing dietary habits, letting go of or obtaining new relationships, swapping chemical ridden products with more natural products, starting a new exercise routine, etc.

For the sake of this post we would like to discuss swapping your old bug spray and sunscreen with more natural options. Many of the bug sprays contain chemicals that can wreak havoc on your nervous system, cause asthmatic symptoms, and irritate the skin while many sunscreens contain chemicals which potentially disrupt the endocrine system (which controls the hormones in the body).

Luckily there are more natural alternatives that I’d like to share with you. I currently use the bug spray and have used the sunscreen, both have worked very well and smell great too! Let us know what you think and if you’d like to purchase high quality essential oils to use in your homemade bug spray or sunscreen, contact us for more information at (507) 333-5388 or
