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

June 3, 2020 Leave your thoughts

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

Citrus Essential Oils Comparison Chart Guide

February 4, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Why are Citrus Essential Oils so Important? Citrus essential oils are top notes. They typically come at you quick, then dissipate within a short period of time. So, if their scent doesn’t linger, why are they so important? Can they help that fast? The answer is yes. Even when a scent doesn’t linger, science shows us that just one whiff can fill the olfactory receptor sites to cause the brain to engage, activate and trigger action throughout the entire body and brain. They are important because they are our “cheerleaders”. Our “flashlight”. Our “activators”. They activate the mind and body... Read More

Bay Laurel Significance With Nerves & Victory

January 15, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Bay Laurel Essential Oil, Laurus nobilis Bay laurel is probably most recognized for its use in the Olympic Games as a symbol of victory. It has a sweet yet dry, warming, floral-ish scent with ever so light hints of spice. It is a very strong scent, so 1 drop in an aromatherapy blend can go a long way. Too much can overtake and overpower a blend. A good balance would be 1 drop bay laurel to 3 drops of a citrus note, 2 drops of a floral note, and 1-2 drops of a base note.

2020 Hot Trends in Aromatherapy

December 12, 2019 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy trends have changed over the years. Essential oils and the practice of aromatherapy are certainly more of a household name today, than it was, say, ten years ago. I remember when I first started my aromatherapy business almost 20 years ago, that there was still a learning curve of what aromatherapy was, how it works, and why it helps with so many health ailments. There was not as much evidence based research as there is today. You used to have to read the actual medical and holistic health journals to get the information that is not at our fingertips...
