    Let It Go Essential Oil Blend

      Part of healing is letting go, not letting your illness define you and not allowing it to take your connection with your inner, authentic self. One of the ways I have found to do this is by using essential oils aromatically.

Essential oils work in miraculous ways throughout the body! ¬†¬†They are not voodoo or a fad. ¬†Healing oils, in some form have been used medicinally for most of human history. ¬†Their effectiveness has been proven in multitudes of recent research…

    The Power Of The Small Stuff

    Today I heard in my meditation, “Don’t underestimate the power of the small stuff.” This is different than what I usually think.¬†I thought we weren’t supposed to sweat the small stuff –¬† something I’ve been trying very hard to do. Here I am hearing just the opposite. The more I thought about it, though, I realized how true and powerful this statement really is. I saw pictures of my kids bringing me the dandelions they picked out of the yard. This was a seemingly little thing at the time but it now brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart.¬† It’s amazing how fast I can go…
