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.

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... 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.
