Nut and Nut-Free Oils: Nourishing Your Health While Managing Allergies To understand what a is considered a nut, I searched the Wikipedia definition which states, A nut in botany is a simple dry fruit in which the ovary wall (shell) becomes increasingly hard as it matures, and where the seed remains unattached or free within the ovary wall.” So, a seed is contained within a nut, however it is not a nut.

Helichrysum – The Deep Wound Healer

February 28, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Helichrysum, the “wound healer”, is one of my absolutely favorite essential oils! It is a powerful healer of the mind, body and soul, especially when the wounds are deep. Think of PTSD, traumatic situations, severe and/or chronic cognitive deficits and scarring on the skin. Its heavy, hay-like floral, yet herby-earthy and green scent can hydrate and nourish skin, while penetrating and warming the depths of emotional scars.   Helichryum Plant Signatures Helichrysum is a shrub that grows a little more than three feet high, with slender, leaf-like stems and a cluster of golden-yellow flowers that have a spongy appearance.

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.

The Joy Organ – Pancreas

January 11, 2018 1 Comment

The Joyous Pancreas When you think about of the pancreas, what comes to mind? Most people would say, blood sugar. That is correct. The pancreas regulates blood sugar balance. However, it does so much more. Having an emotional healing brain, the first thought that comes to my mind is, joy and the sweetness in life. When someone is deprived of enjoyment, happiness and laughter, the physical organ that takes “the hit” is the pancreas.  Blood sugar is related to food sugars.  Food sugars are related to comfort and joy. It makes us feel better, even if it is temporary. Thus,... Read More

Essential Oil Scent Contamination

December 7, 2017 3 Comments

That’s MY Oil Did you know there is such a thing as essential oil contamination? I was recently at an event sharing the benefits of essential oils, and letting attendees smell and connect with the different scents. One lady came up to me and told me how much she loves essential oils. She then excitedly grabbed the bottle out of my hand, opened the lid and placed her fingers over the orifice reducer top to “shake it up” (you do not need to shake up your essential oils in this manner).  She then proceeded to dab the orifice reducer top...
