I was reading through my business goals that I created when I first started my business close to 20 years ago.  One of the things I listed was for aromatherapy to become a household name.  Well, thanks to this ever-evolving industry, it is now become a house name.  How great is that? For many people, they know about essential oils and the effect they can have on enhancing our mood, promoting sleep, inspiring energy and calming a burn. What most people do not know, is that aromatherapy can also effect emotional health, tapping into the depths of why we are... Read More

Face Firming Botanicals

March 3, 2016

There are many botanicals and essential oils historically known to assist the skin in tightening, toning, firming and strengthening to combat fine lines, wrinkles and the appearance of aging.  A more pleasant term I like to use for aging skin is “vintaging”. People love vintage as it represents character, wisdom and an enduring charm. The JennScents Face Firming Serum is a combination of skin building botanicals such as antioxidants, collagen, sea algae and peptides. This army of firming and brightening agents work together to decrease hyperpigmentation and lift sagging skin to tighten and tone. It encourages cellular turnover, reduces and protects discoloration, scarring and...

Custom Care verses Cattle Care

January 18, 2016

In our fast-moving, fast-paced, multi-tasking, quick-fix demanding society, I have seen the mentality of our health care move away from customized care and more towards “cattle care”. What do I mean by that?  With customized care, a person evaluates themselves or is evaluated as an individual, a whole person, rather than compared to everyone else, clumped into a category, labeled and given a “universal protocol”. The person’s specific needs are discussed and cross-referenced to “connect the dots” aiming to find the root of the manifestations experienced by that individual. Then a customized plan of action can be created to meet those specific needs,...

Why are plant enzymes so important in aromatherapy blends? What are plant enzymes and how can they help us? On a nutritional level, enzymes break down proteins, fats, carbs, sugars and starches. They are often associated with digestion and gastrointestinal health. Taken with meals (usually in capsule form), they can help you digest your food, to break it down so you can absorb and utilize its nutrients.  Taken in between meals, it can help you break down wastes, food, yeast, candida, parasites, and bacteria that may have been there a while. In aromatherapy, enzymes can be helpful to help the... Read More
