Honoring Our Veterans With Deep Appreciation & Gratitude

May 24, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Mental Health PSA as we approach memorial day – a day to honor our veterans who have seen and experienced some unimaginable sights. Mental Health instability affects so many people. There are statistics that show it affects 1 in 5 people, but what about those who suffer in silence. I’d almost bet the stats are closer to 1 in 2 or 3 people. It’s the silent sufferers I want to reach out to. Many depend on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications to go out in public, handle stress and even just do normal, everyday tasks.  Here are some helpful ideas to... View Article

How do I move forward when I feel stuck?

May 22, 2017 2 Comments

Emotions are vital to our everyday existence.  They propel us to move forward, face our fears and conquer our dreams.  But they also can be debilitating, consuming and overwhelming.  Most people don’t give too much attention when things are going right in their life.  They take for granted that their hard work, positive thinking and faith has blessed them with abundance for the day.  But you can be certain, that we give more focus to our life when things don’t go our way, we are having a bad day, our “luck” is unlucky and we just feel defeated.  Why is...

Essential Oils and Hydration

May 2, 2017 1 Comment

How do your essential oil's help the mind and body stay hydrated? When you smell an essential oil, it does not automatically increase your hydration level. What it does do is provide antioxidant and antibacterial properties, that nourish and empower cells to function at its best. When you give the body the right tools, it will perform its job optimally. Certain scents enhance lymphatic circulation which assists nutrients to be delivered where they need to go, and toxins to be eliminated properly. When this nutrient balance happens, cells and tissues can obtain and stay hydrated. You've heard that saying, it's... View Article

Hyperpigmentation Serum

May 1, 2017 Leave your thoughts

I love this Hyperpigmentation Serum. I originally formulated it for myself and some of my spa clients to combat the pigmentation, discolorations and scarring left from acne, abrasive skin care products and other skin traumas. It is not a simple recipe, but rather a complex layered synergy of various botanical and essential oils. Some of the main ingredients are helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum), that is a powerhouse when it comes to scars, wounds (physical and emotional), and aids in tissue and cellular repair.  It offers anti-inflammatory, cicatrisant and vulnerary properties. As most people know, helichrysum is quite expensive, but delivers an... View Article

Oregano Essential Oil vs. Oil of Oregano Supplement

May 1, 2017 Leave your thoughts

What is the difference between oregano essential oil and oil of oregano (herbal supplement)? Dilution and potency. Oregano essential oil has gone through a steam distillation process and is a full concentrate of that procedure.  Oregano contains a phenol called carvacrol with which the potency varies between essential oil and the herbal supplement of Oil of Oregano (many supplement companies use a standardized dilution).  Oil of Oregano supplement is emulsified in a fat carrier such as safflower or olive oil, usually an extract, that is either distributed in a soft gel or liquid form. It is not a full concentrate,... View Article

Does Lemon Essential Oil gobble up toxins?

April 7, 2017 Leave your thoughts

As a holistic aromatherapy practitioner, I get asked questions on a daily basis about how to use essential oils, and what to use them for.  I recently was asked. “does lemon essential oil help to detoxify our bodies and gobble up or digest the petrochemicals that end up in our system every day?” Lemon essential oil per se doesn’t conquer these tasks directly. Rather, it ignites while blood cell production (immunity and cellular function), and enhances overall cellular and physiological energy to feed organs and tissues to do their job more optimally. When this happens, the body will naturally be... View Article
