Let’s hit the ground running to welcome the new year. This is the year you focus on YOU! Whether you make weekly appointments for self-care, take monthly “personal days” or plan a quarterly weekend getaway. Take time to personally assess your health – head to toe and inside to out. You do maintenance on your car right?  Well, your body is your main vehicle. Your main transportation. Time to check is and self-assess. How are you doing? If your body could talk to you, what would it say? What is working great? These body functions you want to keep and... Read More

Essential Oil Scent Contamination

December 7, 2017 4 Comments

That’s MY Oil Did you know there is such a thing as essential oil contamination? I was recently at an event sharing the benefits of essential oils, and letting attendees smell and connect with the different scents. One lady came up to me and told me how much she loves essential oils. She then excitedly grabbed the bottle out of my hand, opened the lid and placed her fingers over the orifice reducer top to “shake it up” (you do not need to shake up your essential oils in this manner).  She then proceeded to dab the orifice reducer top...

A Stressed Mind Can Lead to A Stressed Body, and Vice Versa

November 29, 2017 Leave your thoughts

When you don’t feel good, it is hard to be motivated, inspired, empowered and confident. It is easy sometimes to fall into the misery trap, and not be able to see or think clearly, or positively. A stressed mind can cause a stressed body, and vice versa. Finding ways to connect and strengthen your inner power, can help you stand up in your own personal power. Having tools to get you back on your feet, moving forward and living freely. Developing the ability to conquer your dreams, goals and “to do” list with courage, joy, appreciation and gratitude, is essential.... Read More

Feelings of Self-Worth is Often Overlooked

November 9, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Self-worth is a powerful emotion that can drive you up, or force you down. A healthy state of feeling worthy can propel you forward in life. It can inspire your dreams, fuel your creativity and invigorate your spirit. You can accomplish anything when you are confident, supported, secure in who you are, what you want, and where you want to go. It’s like the old expression, “an object in motion stays in motion”. When you are surrounded by positivity, it fuels your own positivity, which then infects others around you with positivity. Therefore, positivity keeps paying forward. Until something stops...

November 8, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Bringing Comfort & Joy ‘Tis the season to add some spice in your life. The weather is cooler, stress management is in full gear and some tummy nurturing is much needed (or will be needed). Who can you call to be your “stress extinguisher”? Cinnamon!  I call cinnamon essential oil, a “hug in a bottle”.  It brings comfort, stability, feelings of safety and security, warms the heart and provokes self love. The holidays are a time to celebrate, but for some, it can be a lonely, sad and stressful time. Time to spice up your life, or help spice up... Read More

Creating Personalized Blends to Match Your Mind-Body Health Needs We are excited to be one of the first to offer a Virtual Aromatherapy Custom Blending Bar experience. I began my aromatherapy custom blending bar in 2002, at a local herb shop in my hometown. There was nothing like it and it really happened by accident. It started out with me visiting the shop frequently as I was working on regaining my health. I then came every day and talked with people when they came into the store. I shared that I made me an Intestinal Soother to calm my bowels... Read More

Essential Oils and EMF Protection

October 11, 2017 3 Comments

I was recently asked if there is an essential oil that helps with EMF (electromagnetic field) protection. Antioxidants have been scientifically shown to be very beneficial with EMF protection. All 100% pure essential oils possess antioxidant properties, in addition to many other health supporting properties such as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, immune boosting, nervine, etc. They each have varying Hertz frequencies, which generate energetic protection by increasing the body’s Hz to combat the incoming stimuli. EMF Effects When you look at the effects that EMF’s have on immune system suppression, blood cell functions and health and cellular communication, you can see that... Read More

It’s time to replace the unhealthy “smoke-break” with a healthier option – the “scent-break”. In a workplace world full of technology, deadlines, multi-tasking and daily demands…wouldn’t it be nice to have a “spa” at your desk, at any given moment?  Well you can! Just imagine, at the snap of your fingers, you can be surrounded by relaxing lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), revitalizing sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) and comforting cinnamon (Cinnamomum zylancium).   Here’s how you do it. Dedicate one of your desk drawers as your “spa-time” drawer and include these essentials: A basket or organza bag of your favorite essential oils... Read More

Essential Oil Origin – What We Need To Know

September 27, 2016 6 Comments

Essential Oil Origin – What We Need To Know I was recently asked if the origin of an essential oil matters and if someone could grow any plant in their backyard, distill it and make their own essential oils. Also, is organic an absolute must or can a wild-crafted essential oil produce similar, or sometimes better therapeutic properties?  I will share my personal “two cents” on this topic, knowing that there are many schools of thought.   To start the dialogue let me begin by saying that these are not quite easy yes or no answers. When I first began my natural...
