Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go..

Self care tips this Autumn Season In Chinese medicine, Autumn is the season of the element Metal (or air). Grief is the emotion of the Metal element. This element is related to the organs of the lungs & large intestine. These two organs symbolize the action, function & ability of "receiving & letting go" physically & emotionally.

How beautiful is Aurora Borealis...

I just love the aurora borealis, it's on my bucket list of places to visit. As an energy worker and intuitive therapist I find it so fascinating that not only does the human body have it's own energy field, but so does our beautiful planet.  It's no surprise to me that so many people are fascinated by the aurora borealis, but few know the science and myths related to the natural light show in the sky. The aura of the northern lights is not without its cultural interpretations, regional beliefs and social superstitions, with different countries and regions interpreting the auroras in their own way. Isn't it amazing th...

WHAT IS GROUNDING?

What is grounding? The health benefits and how you can do it. Have you heard of the term grounding before?

It's a therapeutic technique that helps us to connect our ...

Natural Fruit & Veggie Wash

Do you remember the video of worms coming out of strawberries plunged in saltwater that went viral all over social media last year? Gross, right? I think most of us know that we are supposed to wash fruits and vegetables before eating them – even if they will be peeled. Fruit and veggies straight from the supermarket (or farm) are covered in icky bacteria, bugs, pesticides and other contaminants. Some fruits are even coated with a layer of wax to make them last longer in the stores. So what's the best way to wash your fruits and veggie, you ask? I like to use my Lemon Essential Oil or Onguard from doTERRA. I won't wash our fruits and vegetables with soap, water doesn't seem like it's enough on its own. I also don't like to add s...

Ylang Ylang the Oil of the Inner Child

In each of us, there is a young, suffering child. We were all at one time children. And the child you once were did not just up and vanish, to be replaced by a perfectly formed, always responsible adult. Indeed, most of us act very much like children, at least now and then. It’s in the moment you have a meltdown over a parking ticket, or you react to a bad day. If we had a tough or loveless childhood, some of us are actually children most (if not all) of the time. We might look like an adult, but inside is an angry and upset child. Inner-child work is a powerful tool for healing from trauma, dysfunctional patterns, and self-harming behavio...

Helichrysum - the oil of healing

I want to dive into the topic of Healing, and specifically around emotional Healing. As an Aromatherapist & Student Acupuncturist, I find it fascinating that emotional issues can manifest in the body's tissues, and if left unresolved, can manifest as pain & tension. That's why I love essential oils so much because the scent of essential oils can affect many things, one being your emotional state. Essential Oils have the power to delight our senses and uplift our mood. When the scent of essential oil is inhaled, the molecule...
