Essential oils are part of my daily life.  To say that I am a lover of Essential Oils is an understatement!

They serve as anchor points to remind me to breathe, to remind me to be present and enjoy each moment as it comes.

They provide me with comfort.  I have a daily practice where I intentionally think about the blend I want to diffuse that morning, afternoon or evening.

In essence, they are my access to tranquility.

For fun, I make my own deodorant, shampoo, shower gels as well as cleaning supplies.  I create blends to help foster a tranquil environment.

My love of aromatherapy extends into my cooking as well – choosing the right herbs/spices.

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.

Essential oils have been used for nearly 6,000 years, with the aim of improving a person’s health or mood. Who can argue with nature?!
