Grapefruit Essential Oil Benefits: A Mover & Shaker Oil

June 6, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Ah, the smell of grapefruit is refreshing and uplifting.  One of my all-time favorite aromatherapy combinations is grapefruit mixed with peppermint essential oil.  It smells like cotton candy to me (minus the heavy sugary scent). It reminds me of run, refuels my spirit and invigorates my soul. Grapefruit has a distinct flavor to it, which gives you an early indicator that it is unique, bitter and firm in its aroma, yet sweet and rejuvenating.

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).

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...

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.
