February 16, 2018 Leave your thoughts

When you ask someone about their liver, most will say, yes, it’s in there. Well, what does it do? A lot! To be more specific, it plays a huge role in detoxifying the body.  It has over 500 functions and 11 detoxification pathways (5 in Phase 1 and 6 in Phase 2) to get the junk out and aid in immunity and digestion. Where is my liver? The liver is located to the right of the stomach, behind the ribcage, and below the diaphragm. I call this the “everything organ”. Helping with digestion, absorption, food processing, bile secretion, and blood filtering,... Read More

What is the thyroid’s purpose? The thyroid is a gland that regulates metabolism of carbs, thyroid hormones, proteins and fats.

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).

Ginger Junction – A digestive must-have

October 23, 2017 1 Comment

Ginger to the Rescue Thanksgiving time is upon us. We will all be overeating, indulging in treats and in need of some serious digestive support. I bet every table will have some form of ginger root on it. Most people are familiar with ginger candy and herbal tea. However, the essential oil is somewhat under utilized. Adding ginger essential oil with roman chamomile and peppermint (in equal parts) can be the trifecta of “Thanksgiving Overindulgence”.  Make up in a roll-on or spray, and place them on the dinner table with instructions of use on the label. You will be everyone’s... Read More

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... Read More

Does Lemon Essential Oil gobble up toxins?

April 7, 2017 Leave your thoughts

As a holistic aromatherapy practitioner, I get asked questions on a daily basis about how to use essential oils, and what to use them for.  I recently was asked. “does lemon essential oil help to detoxify our bodies and gobble up or digest the petrochemicals that end up in our system every day?” Lemon essential oil per se doesn’t conquer these tasks directly. Rather, it ignites while blood cell production (immunity and cellular function), and enhances overall cellular and physiological energy to feed organs and tissues to do their job more optimally. When this happens, the body will naturally be... Read More
