March 27, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Cardamom is often overlooked in aromatherapy and undervalued in it therapeutic potentiality. I think most people grab ginger or cinnamon, as these tend to be more popularized. Once someone smells this sweet, vegetative scent with camphoresque undertones, they connect to it on a deeper level and it opens up their mind and helps release certain emotional burdens. It is common in oral care products to sweeten breath, and enhance oral hygiene.   Cardamom Plant Characteristics Cardamom is a aromatic plant that can grow up to 122 feet high.  It belongs to the zingiberaceae (ginger) family which is known for having...

Essential Oil Scent Contamination

December 7, 2017 Leave your thoughts

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...

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

Mental Health PSA as we approach memorial day – a day to honor our veterans who have seen and experienced some unimaginable sights. Mental Health instability affects so many people.

Many depend on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications to go out in public, handle stress and even just do normal, everyday tasks.  Here are some helpful ideas to... Read More

Emotions are vital to our everyday existence.  They propel us to move forward, face our fears and conquer our dreams.  But they also can be debilitating, consuming and overwhelming.  Most people don’t give too much attention when things are going right in their life.  They take for granted that their hard work, positive thinking and faith has blessed them with abundance for the day.  But you can be certain, that we give more focus to our life when things don’t go our way, we are having a bad day, our “luck” is unlucky and we just feel defeated.  Why is...
