Enlightenment

Greetings & salutations dear friends!  Your presence brings joy to my soul.  I pray my writings bring some value to our time together.

This week I would like to talk about the light & the darkness.  You may find yourself wondering what in the world light & darkness have to do with any of my blogs. All my entries are Essential Oils, Yoga & Meditation

Let me explain.  On my journey I have joined different Forums relating to Yoga, Meditation & Essential Oils.  Today I received an email from one of them, advising of a new posting.  I read the summary of it & decided I wished to provide my viewpoint. When I arrived at the original post I saw someone had left a message.

My immediate impression of the response was how much darkness surrounded it.  There was some truth, but with so much darkness a person could miss it.  I felt sad for both the Seeker of enlightenment & the darkness. 

I read the words of the Seeker & I did see the struggle to leave the darkness.  It is a delicate subject & the Seeker was attempting to come from a place of love.  The Seeker has lived with certain notions, notions the darkness has promoted since the dawn of time.  These notions have become the “truth”.  The Seeker has now ventured out & is finding that the “known” truth is not always truth.

This is my own journey as well.  Stepping into Yoga, Meditation & yes, even Essential Oils I have found my own mind opening.  I am learning how much in the darkness I have been living.  And when my journey out of it started, the darkness tried to pull me back.  It still does to this day. 

I know now, looking back, I brought the darkness with me in many situations.  Now that I am turning to & living more in the light I see where I where I can bring more of the same to other Seekers.  I believe we have a duty to shine the light into the darkness.

I believe that as Seekers of Enlightenment we will, inevitably, be finding the light*.  And once found, will turn to shine it for others on the path.  We will learn to see the light breaking through the new Adventurer & we will respond with Light.  * or - “…inevitably, find the Light…”

But until we learn to leave the darkness behind, we will discourage brave, new Seekers.  The darkness will attempt to beat you back.

My words for you today are to stay strong in your quest for Enlightenment.  Be bold when looking at the darkness.  Know that the darkness is frightened, it knows it will not survive true Enlightenment & needs your own fear to continue.  Be assured that as long you move towards Enlightenment you will triumph.

In your journey to Enlightenment you will learn to come from a place of love.  You will learn how to ask in light & reply in light.  You will find you have the opportunity to help another toward the light.

Shine your light, my friends.  Light is not for hiding under a basket, but for lighting the way.  We may not be able to see very far with the light, but the light can be seen from very far away.  So hold your own Light high & chase out the darkness.  Every light counts.

Til next we meet, Be Blessed

Life


Greetings & salutations dear friends!  Your presence brings joy to my soul.  I pray my writings bring some value to our time together.

Wow, life. Big subject.  It sure has a way of changing your plans, doesn’t it?  Take mine for example.  When I took on the commitment of blogging I choose to make it a weekly thing. 

I have done well doing just that for quite a bit of time.  Then life hit.  Things at work have gone nuts.  Let me see if I can explain.

I work at a District Attorney’s office in SoCal.  I like to describe my job as the stage manager for the Deputy District Attorney’s show.  I obtain the digital or paper discovery, make copies for the DDA & defense, convert formats for DDA ease of use, redact from audio & video recordings so the jury doesn’t get bored, video tape hearings in case we “lose” that witness before the trial, take photos of defendant tattoos (regardless of what body part it may be on), serve SDTs for hospital records, serve subpoenas for uncooperative witnesses/victims (after using numerous systems to locate them) & then have the privilege of transporting these delightful folks to & from court.  I think that covers it in a nutshell.

Now, if any of you have heard of the political atmosphere in California lately, you know it is not geared towards curbing crime.  An example is how the liberals of this state decided that if a convicted felon (or anyone else) steals a gun, it’s only a misdemeanor.  Seriously, a misdemeanor.  When people are stealing guns & killing other people, but it’s ok.  We’ll just slap you on the wrist.

So, surprise, surprise, crime goes up.  Now, let’s throw in that Law Enforcement is getting a really bad rap for enforcing the law.  Yes, I know there are bad cops out there, but not all, not even most are deliberately using force under cover of authority.

I caught a news story the other day.  A convicted gang banger, out on parole & later to be found under the influence of a controlled substance, &, oh yes, had a hand gun, lead the cops on a high-speed chase through a residential neighborhood.  For the record, the cop cars were using their attention-getting disco lights & loud ear-shattering sirens as their way of asking him to stop for an amicable chat.  He crashed the car, jumped out & started running, giving the appearance he was declining the invitation.  Cops stop their cars, jump out & give chase.  Now the cops are vocally telling him who they represent & asking him to stop for their little chat.  I’m sure you’re as surprised as I am that he kept running.  They caught him on the sidewalk in front of this lady’s house.  She had heard the commotion (difficult not to hear it) &, out of natural curiosity, steps out of her front door to watch the proceedings.

Now, for whatever reason the news channel decided this is what the people want to see, so they send a news crew out.  This lady now has her 15 minutes of fame.  How is she going to play it out?  She decides to tell the camera how, in her opinion (based, I’m sure, on her experience deeply involved in the Law Enforcement) that the Officers used excessive force to ensure they had the opportunity to speak w/the gentleman.  That’s it lady, go with the herd, it’s safer.

Now, I will step onto the other side of the fence & speak of the tragedy of the lady in Minneapolis recently.  Yoga instructor, soon to be bride, planning the wedding, all shows a young woman who is an asset to the world.  She’s heard negative sounds.  Her moral compass calls upon her to call those whom we trust “To Protect & Serve”.  She gets involved. 

We know what happened, but let me explore how it could have also played out.  She runs out of her house to flag down the officers.  They see her, stop the car, jump out, chase down a bad guy & put him away.  Our Yoga Instructor now has the appreciation of a grateful community.  Happy, & preferable, ending.

May we now take a look at the cops’ viewpoint?  I’m just guessing on this, of course, but from my years with the District Attorney’s office, around these men & women who live this job, listening to them tell their stories, I might have an idea.

We have two young men.  Both have been on for less than two years.  Between them they have under 4 years of experience.  I’ve heard that to be considered to be a “seasoned cop” you need at least 5 years on the force.

In the last few years the news has been full of stories where people in this career of Law Enforcement have been shot, execution style, while answering calls for help.  I don’t know about you, but I could see where they might be a bit on the jumpy side. 

So, it’s dark, probably one of the nicer neighborhoods, but, still, a call for help has gone out, a bad person is out there.  These men are on high alert.  Someone comes running at them.  One of the officers reportedly heard a loud bang & he reacts.  A young woman is now dead.

Just in case you’re wondering, I do not condone this officer’s actions.  As a Monday morning quarterback, I think he should be invited to seek out a different career.  From the information I’m going off of, what he did was not a criminal act.  Of course, I wasn’t there, so I’m just guessing.

I’m not sure what my point is for this rant.  I guess the theme is to give the cops the benefit of the doubt.  Geez, you may know you’re not out to hurt them, but let your actions reflect the same.  If a cop asks you to stop, then stop.  If you’re asked to show your hands, then show your hands.

One last story & I’ll step off my soapbox.  Some public skatepark somewhere USA.  Skaters gather to say good-bye to a friend.  Some of the skaters choose to permanently mark up the cement as a memorial to their friend.  What some of us would call “graffiti”.  As I understand the news report, other folks who were visiting another part of the park with their small children, grew concerned at such a large gathering & call Law Enforcement.

The cops showed up & asked the crowd of skaters to disperse.  Instead of gathering up their personal items & heading for another location to continue the mourning process, they choose to surround the officers.  Then they started banging their skateboards on the ground, while surrounding the cops.  No, that wouldn’t appear threatening to anybody, would it?

The kid whose interview showed up on the news couldn’t understand why Law Enforcement should have started taking a more aggressive stance.  I guess he thought the skaters should be allowed to do what the skaters wanted to do & never mind how it might affect other folks.

Ok, I promised to step down & I will keep that promise.  My point, when I started was how busy it’s gotten at work.  We’ve been pulling a lot of overtime & with my commute it’s just wearing me out. 

Also, recently, I discovered the atmosphere in our work place is receiving some negative energy.  You know how wearing that can be also. 

Bottom line, I can only work on the blog every other weekend, so for a while, I’m only posting bi-monthly.

Look for me in two weeks.

Til next we meet, Be Blessed

Tea Tree aka Melalueca Essential Oil


Tea Tree Essential Oil has been used in Australia since before written records.  It is extracted from the leaves & stems of the Melaleuca (mel a lu ka) plant.  The Latin name is Melaleuca alternifolia.  It is a native of Australia, although it has been transplanted to other countries.

Tea Tree or Melaleuca Essential Oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antiseptic & antibiotic.  It is a must for any Essential Oil first aid & home cleaning.  It can kill mold, heal topical skin issues, treat viral infections, cure athlete’s foot, bad breath & so much more.

Functional medical doctors will prescribe Tea Tree & Oregano Essential Oils as an alternative to conventional drugs.  These Essential Oils have been found to be just as effective, but have none of the unfavorable side effects.  In fact, some of these oils have even had positive synergistic effects.  They actually prevented the development of antibiotic resistance! 


***HOWEVER, Tea Tree Essential Oil is for topical uses only!!  It is poisonous when taken internally!!  do not ingest!!***

Now, with that being stated, let us move on to all the wonderful things about Tea Tree Essential Oil.

As I mentioned it grows naturally in Australia.  Mostly in the south-east region, but you’ll find the oil in just about every home medicine cabinet throughout the continent.  It’s been used as a cure-all by the original inhabitants beyond memory. 

I read one time that for every disease Mother Nature creates, she also provides the cure.  Tea Tree Essential Oil is one of those cures.  Because of the nature of the Tropics bacteria, fungi & infection can quickly get out of hand.  In tropical areas, like Australia, a scratch, bite or wound can quickly become the most horrible & dangerous bacterial infection.  But when a drop of Tea Tree Essential Oil is applied, it stops infection before it starts.  If an infection has already begun, then a bit of the oil will start killing it off.

Tea Tree Essential Oil can also be used to clear up skin eruptions.  It clears up the sebum (an oily substance produce by the body to naturally moisturize & lubricate the skin) glands & eliminates the bacteria in the skin.  It’s been known to relieve eczema, psoriasis & the dreaded acne.  Tea Tree Essential Oil leaves the skin healthier & smoother in a very short time.


Another way we get sick is by the toxins that build up in our bodies.  One of the ways the body rids itself of these toxins is to sweat.  Tea Tree Essential Oil is a sudorific.  This means it increases your sweating to promote toxin removal.

As you can imagine with increased sweating comes the unwelcome body odor.  Well, what do you know, Tea Tree Essential Oil can eliminate the aroma as it is eliminating the bacteria & toxins that cause body odor.

Tea Tree Essential Oil also works as an anti-inflammatory & encourages blood flow.  Increase blood flow & you speed up the healing process while increasing the growth of new tissue & cells.  So the next time you’ve over worked your muscles or twisted a joint wrong, reach for your Tea Tree Essential Oil.

Tea Tree Essential Oil boosts your immune system, stimulates blood circulation & hormone secretions, is effective against viral & fungal infections, gives relief from coughs, colds & congestion, aids in wounds healing faster & reduces dandruff & hair loss.

Add Tea Tree Essential Oil to your shampoo or lotion.  It repels lice, fleas, flies, mosquitoes.  Because it absorbs well through the skin into the body it can aid in killing such things as round worms, tape worms & hook worms.  You can apply Tea Tree Essential Oil directly to wounds, boils, sores, cuts & insect bites & stings.

Tea Tree Essential Oil mixes well with other Essential Oils.  It’s gentle like Lavender Essential Oil, so it can be applied undiluted to the skin.  Always use caution when using undiluted Essential Oils.  You can build up a resistance with overuse.  That’s like an allergy & that oil will not work for you anymore.  In fact, you’ll even have adverse reactions.

So, to recap, Tea Tree Essential Oil has been known to heal bacterial infections, chickenpox, cold sores, congestion, respiratory tract infections, earaches, fungal infections, bad breath, head lice, MRSA, strep infection, boils, psoriasis, insect bites, sores & sunburns.

There’s also the household areas you can use Tea Tree Essential Oil.  It’s a anti-microbial laundry freshener, insect repellant, natural deodorant, acne face wash, it removes mold & is a natural household cleaner.


I hope I’ve piqued your interest in Tea Tree Essential Oil aka Melaleuca Oil.  There’s so many uses for this special oil.


Til next we meet, Be Blessed

The Why


Good day to each of you!  I am so delighted you joined me.  I thought today’s topic should be the “why”.  Well, my why anyway.

I have this young friend.  She’s my husband’s nephew’s wife.  Really a sweet, caring, energetic young woman.  Last year their little family came out here for a family celebration.  During the visit Manda shared *Plexus with us.  Specifically, *Plexus Slim Drink.

*Plexus is a company that makes these amazing, all-natural products.  These products are designed to improve your overall health by assisting in healing your gut, balancing your blood sugar & reducing inflammation.  It has been proven that most of our health issues stem from our gut’s inability to process what we put down there & the lack of nutrients it needs to function.  For more information regarding Plexus please let me know in the comments below or private message.

At that time I was looking for something that would help me elevate my energy level & help me lose weight.  I tried the sample drink.  I liked the flavor & really did notice in increase in my energy, just from the sample.  That was enough for me.  I joined the *Plexus team.

Since then I’ve learned a lot more about their products, like *Pro Biotics 5, *Bio Cleanse & healing my gut.  It’s such a good fit with my Meditation, Yoga & Essential Oils.  Each cleansing parts of my being.  My mind, my body, my spirit, my heart or any combination of them. 

Well, one day Manda & I were chatting & she commented how many toxins are in & around us.  She said it’s a losing battle, but with *Plexus she feels like we are fighting back.  I realized she might be interested in detoxing another part of her life & her family’s life.  That’s when I mentioned to her about this blog.

I gave some thought to what I want her to take from my writings.  How I can show her the connection between Essential Oils, Meditation, Yoga & *Plexus?  And why I would recommend to anyone to incorporate each into their life.

Since I joined Manda’s *Plexus team I have learned about detoxing my body. I use my *Plexus products to help clean out my gut while healing it.  On  the Google Plus account I have for my store I learned of a drink that helps detox the body.  I also learned that using baking powder & Epsom salts makes a wonderful detox bath.  When you add the Essential Oil Lavender you take it to the next level.

The detox drink I prefer includes the juice of half a fresh lemon.  Lemon is also an Essential Oil & a great oil with which to clean.  Using a recipe of a few natural ingredients & Essential Oils you can make a cleaner for your kitchen that will clean it as well, if not better than the store brought cleaners you use now.  The aromas of the Essential Oils will also uplift your mood.

I see both Yoga & Meditation as detoxing processes.  I combine the two & take my time in the evenings.  For me that’s the time I clear my mind & soul of my daily life.  I learned that the breath is the center of every pose & every move in Yoga.  One inhales, letting the air into all nooks & crannies, feeling your body inflate like a balloon.  The air puts space in your body.  Then the exhale expels out the negative energy, the tension loosens its grip & you feel lighter.  A detox for my soul.

As I breath, I meditate, thoughts move through the open door.  As I see the colorful ones, I feel the joy bubble up & I smile.  This always encourages more brightly colored thoughts to float through the door.  The darker ones seem to dissipate or maybe they’re crowded out.  Either way, this is a detox for my mind.

Why is detoxing so important to me?  Look at the chemicals that are in the products we wouldn’t think of living without using.  Toothpaste, soap, detergent, deodorant, etc. Do you have any cavities?  Crowns?  Too much of that is metal or chemicals & that leaks into our bodies.  The chemicals in our water?  Manda’s right, it is a losing battle, but every little bit we can do to fight back is a step in the right direction.

So, Manda, what I would like most for you to take away from my writing would be this, I love *Plexus & I believe *Plexus is a piece of the puzzle for detoxing & healing our bodies.  I believe Essential Oils, Yoga & Meditation are other pieces.  I would love to have you join me on this journey of a more holistic healing.  I do not discount formal medicine, but I believe we need to look more at natural cleaning, prevention & remedies before putting traditional medical remedies.

Thank you all for spending this time with me.  I am humbled & appreciative of your time & hope I have brought some value to it.

‘Til next we meet, Be Blessed

Life

Greetings my friends.  Let me express my humble apologies for not having a better subject this week.  Life is happening right now.

Briefly, we're pulling over time at my job right now.  We have the 9/80 schedule.  That means in a 2 week pay period there are 10 working days.  I work nine hour days Tuesday through Friday every week.  That's 72 hours.  So, one Monday of the pay period I work 8 hours & have the other one off.

Now we're pulling 12 hour days nine out of the 10 work days.  We're getting somewhere, but it doesn't really show.  Disheartening.

Oh, & let us remember my one way drive is 45 minutes.  Makes for very long days.

But I will tell you that I start my day with Plexus Slim drink & recently add the Vitalbiome.  Half an hour or so later, with my breakfast I take 2 of the Plexus X Factor Plus.  I have either some lemon or peppermint diffusing.

For those over stressed moments at work I have a bottle of peppermint.  I'll take one or two deep breathes & go on about the day.

Once at home, I take pleasure in the routine.  I relax with my dinner, then commune & feed my fur babies.  I finish my evening with Yoga & Meditation while diffusing Lavender.

Keep checking in on me.  Soon I will be back to posting the interesting articles.

Till next we meet, Be Blessed.

Synthetic Oils vs Essential Oils


Good day to each of you.  Thank you for joining me.  Today I would like to discuss the difference between types of oils in the Essential Oils world.

We all know that essential oils are different in the aroma & the reactions each has on the body.  But there’s another difference in the oils you can purchase.  I hope my break down will be of service to you, my friends.

Basically, there are two kinds of Oils.  You have the Essential Oils, made from plants, the oil that is the essence of the plant.  This oil is known for its healing or rejuvenating or cleansing effects on our body & our minds.

There is also the Synthetic variety.  This is made in a laboratory.  It is made completely of man-made chemicals.  It has no physiological effects on the body.  However, the aroma does last longer than the plant-based oils. 



Now, you may be asking yourself “Why would I want to use synthetic oils?”  Well, to be honest, I don’t know why.  But what I do know is that you must educate yourself so when you are purchasing your Oils, you know what to look for before making that purchase. One way to know you’re purchasing a synthetic essential oil is if it comes in a clear bottle.  Since it’s man-made it does not break down very quickly.  One of the reasons the fragrance lasts longer.

Also, with Synthetic Oils you’re more likely to purchase a larger bottle for less cost than a smaller bottle of an Essential Oil.  You may think you’re getting a good deal, but you may not be obtaining what you thought & end up very disappointed.

Part of being educated about the Synthetic & Essential Oil, is also knowing the differences in your Essential Oils.  No, not all plant based Essential Oils are created equally.  It couldn’t be that simple, now could it?  Of course not! Lol

An Essential Oil is either distilled or cold pressed from part or parts of a plant (stems, leaves, roots, etc.).  Essential Oils are fragrant, but where the plant was grown, how it was grown, the growing conditions & how it was harvested will all affect the scent.

There are a few different grades of oils.  In this discussion, we’re only interested in the Absolutes: Organics & Pures.  These are the Essential Oils we’re talking about when we discuss uses & blends.  

PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN USING ANY ESSENTIAL OIL!!

That being stated, let us start with Absolutes.  While most Essential Oils are extracted from the plant by the cold press or distilling process, there are some oils that are too delicate or do not respond as well.  So, solvents & chemicals are employed for the extraction.  Most of the chemicals & solvents are removed in the final process, but trace amounts are left behind.

Absolute Oils are highly concentrated.  You must use extreme caution when using.  A very small amount of the Absolute Essential Oil goes a very long way.  This is one of the reason Holistic Aromatherapy prefers the Absolute.

Organic Essential Oils are from plants that are grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. The plant’s Oil is extracted by being either distilled or cold pressed.  No chemicals or solvents are ever introduced to the plant at any part of its growth, or to the extracted oil.

Next is Pure Essential Oils.  The most common definition of a Pure Essential Oil is an oil that has been extracted from plants that may have been exposed to pesticides.  They can use the title of “Pure” because they are extracted for the plant.

I have seen the term “Pure” used as the same as “Organic”, so be sure to do your research on the company where you’re purchasing your oils. 

Other things to look for before purchasing are the differences in the cost of the different oils.  Some Essential Oils are very rare & you should expect to pay more for them.  If Rose oil is the same price as Lavender, you may not be purchasing the best quality of Rose.

One more grade we’ll give an honorable mention here, is Wild Grown.  It can be presumed that if it is growing in the wild, it’s organic.  But as I mentioned earlier, where the plant is grown, & how long it’s been growing, will have an impact on the potency of the oil.

Before committing to a brand, do your research on the company.  You may want to make some purchases & compare the oils.  How do the aromas compare?  Which ones have the effect you desire?

 What works for you?

Friends, I hope, as always, that this has been helpful in your journey.  I look forward to our next meeting.  Until then, Be Blessed.

Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint Essential Oils


Welcome again, friends.  I’m honored you chose to drop in today.  I thought today would be a chance to briefly review Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint Essential Oils.

Lavender is one of the more versatile of the essential oils.  It is cooling, refreshing, relaxing & emotionally balancing.  It is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral & has analgesic properties.

Use lavender on its own to relieve the discomfort of sciatica, rheumatism & arthritis.  Use a drop or two on your feet & on your pillow to refresh & calm you for a peaceful sleep.  Rub it in at your temples & the back of your neck to help relieve headaches.  Add it to Epsom salts for a soothing bath that helps relief muscular aches.

Lavender’s sedative action has calmed the heart & palpitation, & brought down high blood pressure.  It’s also known to reduce scarring & cool burns.  

Dilute it with almond oil for use around children & people with sensitive skin.  It will calm the minor upsets of your infant.  It helps relieve colic, irritability, stress, & will ease childhood infections.

Lavender blends well with other essential oils.  Use it with Cedarwood & Tea Tree in your morning shower to help relieve & heal sinus issues from a cold or allergies.  Blend Lavender with Ylang Ylang & Orange in a small spray bottle to aid in calming & for peaceful night’s sleep.  Blending & mixing essential oils enhances & heightens the action of each individual oil.  

Lemon is one of those oils that is great as an essential oil, but the fruit is also edible & healthy for you.  Using organic lemons, you can freeze them, then grate it & eat it like an ice.  The acid in the lemon breaks down in the gut, helping to balance out the body’s PH levels.  Reducing the acid in your body cuts back on the pain & inflammation of rheumatism, gout & arthritis.  

Fresh lemon juice in a cup of warm water makes a great mouthwash.  Drinking it soothes a sore throat, cough, cold, bronchitis & even the flu symptoms, & you can drink it as often as you desire.   

Fresh lemon juice in a warm green tea with a bit of turmeric & organic honey make an awesome detox drink.  It boosts oral health & the digestive process.

The essential oil of the lemon is an excellent cleanser.  When mixed with items like castile soap it can be used on counter tops.  Since it’s an airborne microbial it will also cleanse your air.  Lemon is also refreshing & supports immune health so as you’re cleaning your kitchen you are also uplifting your mental & physical health.

Lemon oil is also an astringent for your skin.  It is a “hot” oil.  This means a little will go a long way.  😊  So, I would recommend diluting it with a carrier oil to use it on your skin.  You can also add a few drops to your Epsom salts before bathing.  Do not go out into the sun for at least eight hours after applying to your skin. 

Peppermint essential oil is probably my favorite.  I find the aroma uplifting, calming, familiar & bold.  Lemon oil is similar, but not as bold.  I find it subtler.  I like Peppermint’s boldness.

Peppermint is antibacterial, antifungal & is an airborne microbial.  It supports your immunity& digestive system.  It stimulates the mind & the body.  It clears stagnation in the body & breaks through emotional blockages.  It alleviates tension headaches, calms the nervous system & opens up the respiratory system.

Dilute Peppermint oil to rub on your stomach.  It can relieve diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, indigestion, nausea & stomach cramps.

Mix Peppermint oil in your Epsom salt bath.  This will relieve menstrual cramps, stomach cramps, muscular aches, urinary infections, nerve pain & so much more.

Diffusing the essential oil in the air promotes energy & confidence.  It will aid in the improvement of your concentration & memory.  It can alleviate feelings of anger, mental strain, confusion, nervousness, depression, fatigue, anxiety & more.  It uplifts the spirit.

Peppermint oil, like lemon oil, is a hot oil.  Use the same precautions.  Stay out of sunlamps & sunlight for 12 hours after applying to your skin.

Well, that pretty well sums up what we have learned about Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint essential oils.  If you’re just starting this journey into the world of aromatherapy, then these three oils are where you want to begin. 

Please leave comments on your experiences with them.  I would love to hear how they have helped you.

If you are in search of these & others oils, please visit https://www.lbelitearomas.com/.

Please join me next week as we continue our travels through Aromatherapy, Meditation & Yoga. 

Until then, Be Blessed.
