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

Creating Personalized Blends to Match Your Mind-Body Health Needs We are excited to be one of the first to offer a Virtual Aromatherapy Custom Blending Bar experience. I began my aromatherapy custom blending bar in 2002, at a local herb shop in my hometown. There was nothing like it and it really happened by accident. It started out with me visiting the shop frequently as I was working on regaining my health. I then came every day and talked with people when they came into the store. I shared that I made me an Intestinal Soother to calm my bowels... Read More

It’s the silent sufferers I want to reach out to. 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

It’s called the Vagus nerve, or 10th cranial nerve and is a part of the enteric nervous system.
