Aromatherapy for Pets

November 6, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy can be very beneficial for pets, when used safety, correctly and responsibly. The 2 main factors are to use essential oils in a safe dilution ratio and short frequency of time in a well-ventilated area. Certain essential oils will be safer than others. When using aromatherapy with your pet, I highly recommend knowing and understanding safety precautions, guidelines, contraindications, and sensitivities so that you know when your pet is responding or if they are reacting.   Safe essential oils for animals I do find certain scent categories of essential oils to be more gentle than others. For example, citrus, floral,... Read More

Aromatherapy for Constitution Traits

October 12, 2020 Leave your thoughts

WHAT’S YOUR CONSTITUTION? We are born with a soul constitution that drives our motivation, inspiration, determination, resilience, responses, and reactions. Throughout our years of life, our persona and behaviors are influenced by our surroundings and feedback from family, friends, acquaintances, social media, and television. This is a type of conditioning. We are conditioned to learn right from wrong, consequences and joys, how to act around certain people, expectations, and assumptions. We learn the difference between danger and acceptance, or do we? Those in abusive relationships have a blurred line between these two.   Too many operate from a place of... Read More

Aromatherapy Roots: Getting to know Rene-Maurice Gattefosse

October 7, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Interesting story about Rene-Maurice Gattefosse…many who have studied aromatherapy, have heard his name as a leading pioneer in forging the path in aromatherapy. As the legend goes, it has been said that he burned his hand and stuck it in a vath of lavender oil to heal it. Well, that is not actually true. The Lavender Legend I first learned about that legend when I started studying aromatherapy almost 20 years ago. I recently attended an aromatherapy conference and heard Gattefosse’s granddaughter and great-granddaughter share his life’s legacy. Turns out, on 7/25/1910, he actually was working in his lab (as...

Scar Reducing Essential Oils

September 8, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Scar Reducing Essential Oils When most people think of scars, they think of physical scars, that you can see with the human eye.  It is an unwanted discoloration of the skin, sometimes in a very obvious spot like the face, leg, hand or neck.

Essential Oils For Nerve Pain Case Study: CRPS

September 2, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Working with essential oils for nerve pain can be tricky. My advice is to start slow and work up as nerves really are sensitive. It’s like eating ice with an exposed nerve or receded gum line. You have to be aware of several factors so you can properly assess and formulate a helpful blend using essential oils for nerve pain, without overstimulating the pain. What is their sensitivity level? Where is the pain? How long have they had the pain? What is their pain level on a scale of 1-10? Current tissue state? Hot or cold? Wet or Dry? Tense... Read More

August 14, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy for Grief & Lung Health It is not uncommon for me to meet five to six people weekly that say that they are experiencing some type of respiratory concern. One of the first questions that I ask them is if they have been exposed to some form of environmental toxins such as pesticides, fertilizer, mold, automobile fumes, etc. Approximately two or three of them fall into this category but the other seven to eight need further assistance.   Grief Assessment My next question to these individuals is if they are grieving over something or someone.

Your Mind Matters: Turning it Into Your Best Asset

May 20, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Help My Mind & Brain with aromatherapy and herbs Our mind is incredibly powerful. It inspires, empowers and encourages us when it is healthy, active and nourished.  We can think clearly, be witty and spontaneous, creative, innovative problem-solving and we feel like we can conquer and accomplish anything. It serves as our best asset as no one else thinks like you. The ideas you dream of, the way you tackle a problem and create a solution, the ambitions, personality and dedication you possess. However, when it is taxed, stressed, undernourished and abused, it can be our worse enemy. Emotions will... Read More
