When you get lost, you use a compass to find your way, right? Should you be heading north, south, east, west or a combination of all directions to reach your destination? Well, what about when you need to find direction with your health? What tools do you have at your fingertips to guide you?
I want to introduce you to the Solle Compass, one of my favorite tools in my daily “healthbox”. It is a system of Directional Mind-Body Health to help you find your way back to health. Just like the 4 directions on a compass, there are 4 product categories that were carefully selected to support you in one direction or another, or in several of directions at once. The categories are even color coordinated to make it simple. In additional to directional health herbal products, I had the honor of formulating corresponding essential oil blends to enhance, support and nourish the emotional and mental counterparts for each direction. It is health made simple, working together to bring physical, mental and emotional health in balance, simultaneously.
Each essential oil blend and herbal formulas have three things in common. They are Multidimensional, meaning they have deeps roots in their power, and help you work on root issues that drive results. They are Multifunctional, or multipurposed, which deliver a plethora of benefits, for simultaneous results across the board – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, nutritionally and environmentally. Lastly, they are Multifaceted, or contain multilayers of modalities (i.e. benefits, phyto-constitution, TCM, scent odor, intensity and viscosity, doctrine of signatures, historical folklore, etc.) to target issues from many directions, using various tools and skills.
