When you don’t feel good, it is hard to be motivated, inspired, empowered and confident. It is easy sometimes to fall into the misery trap, and not be able to see or think clearly, or positively.

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

How do I move forward when I feel stuck?

May 22, 2017 2 Comments

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...

Essential Oils and Hydration

May 2, 2017 1 Comment

How do your essential oil's help the mind and body stay hydrated? When you smell an essential oil, it does not automatically increase your hydration level. What it does do is provide antioxidant and antibacterial properties, that nourish and empower cells to function at its best. When you give the body the right tools, it will perform its job optimally. Certain scents enhance lymphatic circulation which assists nutrients to be delivered where they need to go, and toxins to be eliminated properly. When this nutrient balance happens, cells and tissues can obtain and stay hydrated. You've heard that saying, it's... Read More

Hyperpigmentation Serum

May 1, 2017 Leave your thoughts

I love this Hyperpigmentation Serum. I originally formulated it for myself and some of my spa clients to combat the pigmentation, discolorations and scarring left from acne, abrasive skin care products and other skin traumas. It is not a simple recipe, but rather a complex layered synergy of various botanical and essential oils. Some of the main ingredients are helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum), that is a powerhouse when it comes to scars, wounds (physical and emotional), and aids in tissue and cellular repair.  It offers anti-inflammatory, cicatrisant and vulnerary properties. As most people know, helichrysum is quite expensive, but delivers an... Read More

Oregano Essential Oil vs. Oil of Oregano Supplement

May 1, 2017 5 Comments

What is the difference between oregano essential oil and oil of oregano (herbal supplement)? Dilution and potency. Oregano essential oil has gone through a steam distillation process and is a full concentrate of that procedure.  Oregano contains a phenol called carvacrol with which the potency varies between essential oil and the herbal supplement of Oil of Oregano (many supplement companies use a standardized dilution). Oil of Oregano supplement is emulsified in a fat carrier such as safflower or olive oil, usually an extract, that is either distributed in a soft gel or liquid form. It is not a full concentrate,...

Gut-Brain Specific Probiotic

March 19, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Did you know that you literally have a nerve that connects the brain in your head with the brain in your gut? It’s called the Vagus nerve, or 10th cranial nerve and is a part of the enteric nervous system. This is what gives us the phenomena of “butterflies in our stomach” (Dr. Michael Gerson, The Second Brain), and ignites our “gut feeling” and intuition (which can help us in decision making, behaviors, responses and reactions).  The brain in your gut has been said to have more responsibilities than the brain in your head.  Gershon says “the second brain contains...
