Using Aromatherapy for Self-Nourishment & Adrenal Fatigue

October 18, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Think about how many times during the day you help someone else. Now think about how many times during the day, you help yourself. Or take a 10-15 break, without any technology, just to do some deep breathing, walk around the block or nurture yourself. In most cases, you have a double digit number next to helping others. And you probably have a 0 or 1 next to helping yourself. Well, it’s time for self-nourishment aromatherapy! THE BANK OF YOU Start thinking of yourself as a bank.

Our Gut: The Worrier

October 16, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Where Do You Feel Your Emotions Did you know that each organ has an emotional counterpart? When you are experiencing a physical ailment, think about what emotions coincide with that body part. We hold the emotion of worry in the gut or gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Anger in the liver. Grief in the lungs. Fear in the kidneys. Not feeling supported is in the bones. Ailments in the front of the body have to do with moving forward. Ailments in the back of the body have to do with letting go of something from the past. Right now, I want you... View Article

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.

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... View Article

Essential Oils and EMF Protection

October 11, 2017 Leave your thoughts

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. 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 essential oils... View Article

I have had several family members and friends go through radiation over the years. It really takes a toll on their skin, causing burning, redness, discoloration, hardness and discomfort.

Ever since, I love that my products can bring the much needed relief to brighten someone’s day, and relieve their pain. Our Radiation Burn Salve &... View Article

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.

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

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
