Essential Oils for ADHD

September 20, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Integrating aromatherapy into a daily regimen has been proven to be very effective in managing mood, behavior, responses and reactions. When you match up the right remedies to tackle an issue, you will always see results.  If you are not seeing or feeling results, then you need to look deeper at the core issue and determine the true culprits of the imbalance. For example, certain foods can cause chemical reactions, metabolism changes and neurotransmitter disruptions within the body.  But this is not a cookie cutter effect for everyone.  I could eat sweet potatoes and be completely fine and satisfied with...

Our minds are a powerful resource we have to overcome and conquer anything we set out to do.  You have heard that saying before, “mind over matter”, right? Well, it’s true.

This is where you get to exercise your inner Fear Warrior.  F.E.A.R. stands for Forget Everything, Achieve Resolution. Resolve, not fret.... Read More

Scent Defenders: Heighten Awareness and Minimize Personal Attack Invasion

May 3, 2018 Leave your thoughts

How do you protect yourself when you  feel attacked? It certainly is not a good feeling when you allow someone to invade your personal and mental space. You give them power when you do this. You open yourself up to receive their personal attack and negativity. Keep in mind, everyone is at a different place in their healing process in life. Some have not learned the skill to work through their grief, anger, fear and bitterness. Others are in the midst of healing, and may experience emotional diarrhea (emotions all over the place). And others have learned how to use... Read More

Speaking Your Body's Language and Translating The Signals

Speaking Your Body’s Language & Translating The Signals

March 29, 2018 Leave your thoughts

How many people listen to their body? Okay, let me rephrase that, how many people listen to their body’s everyday, whether you are having a good day or bad day? Most people only pay attention when there is an issue, imbalance, illness, discomfort or pain. It is hard to recognize the very initial stage of an imbalance, especially if you don’t know what you are looking, or “listening” for. It could be something as simple as a slight headache, gas, bloating and tired muscles. If you don’t address these subtleties, the body “screams” a little louder, and that headache, indigestion...

Making HeartScents for Love, Rejection & Broken Heartedness

February 9, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Everyone loves to feel loved. And everyone really wants to make others feel loved.  It is when ego and pride step in that we begin to critique, judge and evaluate other people and situations.  When we do that, that type of judgment can make someone feel unloved, rejected, unworthy and inferior.  Can’t we all lift up everyone else, instead of tear them down?  What happened to helping other help themselves? If you have experienced a trauma, either personally or watched someone else get traumatized, there needs to be some healing of the heart. This healing can help restore kindness, appreciation,...

The Joy Organ - Pancreas

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
