Making HeartScents for Love, Rejection & Broken Heartedness

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,...

Jasmine-The Mama Bear Essential Oil Personality

Jasmine – The Mama Bear Essential Oil Personality

January 11, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Beautiful flower with a powerful punch Don’t mess with jasmine, the essential oil that is. Think about how a mama bear protects her cubs. She is very protective, controlling of a situation and nurturing. Jasmine is a night owl. Just as most wild animals come out at night, her scent is at its strongest peak during the night. Connecting the dots, you can see how this would be a good choice for those working the nightshift to help manage the stress on the circadian rhythm. Jasmine is a beautiful scent. Intoxicating and overwhelming at times, but sensuous, nonetheless. It is heavy,... Read More

The Joy Organ - Pancreas

The Joy Organ – Pancreas

January 11, 2018 2 Comments

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 focused 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.... Read More

What is the thyroid’s purpose? The thyroid is a gland that regulates metabolism of carbs, thyroid hormones, proteins and fats.

Self-Love: I AM important The importance of self-love, needs to be embraced by all. After all, you ARE worth it. I think for many people, they forget to love themselves. They worry more about what other people think of them, and if they are loved (enough) by others. However, love, starts with YOU.

This is part of the giving and receiving process. 6 Pillars of Self-Nurturing Practices What are some ways you can... Read More

The Power of Rosemary Essential Oil You can’t help but be transported to an herb field, with wide open spaces allowing you to breathe better and think clearer. It has a distinct scent that almost everyone can recognize. When you see it, you feel compelled to rub the leaves immediately and sniff your fingers. It is a staple in the kitchen, in most herb gardens, and serves as an herbal Christmas tree during the holidays. The Rosemary Brain Rosemary has been labeled as one of the main brain herbs. I love rosemary not only to enhance my physical circulation (vein health),... Read More

Essential Oil Scent Contamination

December 7, 2017 4 Comments

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...

The Journey of a Certified Professional Holistic Aromatherapy Graduate

November 22, 2017 Leave your thoughts

My Journey Eight years ago, after taking an antibiotic my intestinal flora was compromised. I started studying holistic wellness and herbal remedies, that’s where my aromatic journeys began. The area that kept getting my attention was aromatherapy. I wanted to know more about how these plant volatile oils could help my family and in what ways. The NAHA website helped me to narrow the schools down to JennScents. I chose JennScents because she focused more on the health benefits and less on her personal beliefs. Follow Your Nose It is important to study oils, so you have a personal knowledge... Read More

Bringing Comfort & Joy ‘Tis the season to add some spice in your life. The weather is cooler, stress management is in full gear and some tummy nurturing is much needed (or will be needed). Who can you call to be your “stress extinguisher”? Cinnamon!  I call cinnamon essential oil, a “hug in a bottle”.  It brings comfort, stability, feelings of safety and security, warms the heart and provokes self love. The holidays are a time to celebrate, but for some, it can be a lonely, sad and stressful time. Time to spice up your life, or help spice up... Read More

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
