Litsea oil has been used for hundreds of years in ancient Chinese and Indian health care to treat digestive-related issues. The acidic quality of the oil helps to stimulate a reaction in your digestive system that allows you to digest food faster and can be used to ease flatulence by preventing the formation of gasses in your intestines.Read More
We can almost bet that just as fall begins to roll around immune system become compromised and one by one kids at school start getting sick by the day.
The cool thing about TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is that we look at external diagnostic factors that tell us what’s going on inside our body.Read More
There are three reasons why I would move to New Zealand in a heartbeat. Can you guess them?
1.) That’s where Keith Urban is from and that’s what I want
2.) Its the home to International Dark Sky Reserve, which is one of the best stargazing sites on earth.
3.) It's where Manuka is indigenous to.
- Manuka blends well with Peppermint and Bergamot as a personal fragrance. Layer them onto your skin one at a time, first by rolling on Manuka, then roll on some Peppermint Touch and a drop of Bergamot to the desired area.
- Change is inevitable. Whether we choose the next path or not, all you need is a few minutes of courage to get to that next step. Roll Manuka into your palms, cup your hands over your nose and inhale to promote courage and inner strength.
(Three other health benefits that are at the top off my list before I step out of the house to go on a date.)
This oil promotes strong immunity of the body.
Smelling good and staying dry is an all-time must right now. The Miami heat has me melting from the house to my car. Staying dry on a date and free from any armpit odor is my pet peve.
How do you make your deodorant?
Who loves Keith Urban?
New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s "Lord of the Rings" films.
I love essential oil’s, but I love selling Essential oils even more! They are tools that are so accessible. I never let my friends buy from a grocery store when I can give them a 25% discount, save them up to 55% a month and be confident in connecting with a health care plan that probably works better than insurance.Read More
My love for Health Freedom runs DEEP!
Not everyone knows about essential oil, but most everyone is curious. That's when I come in. I love using them talking about them and sharing them. I'm not the only one, in fact, millions of people around the world are too.
What drives me about using essential oils is where they come from and how they are the same essence that Chinese Medicine doctors use for thousands of years. Not only Chinese but also Ayurvedic doctors too.
Spearmint is the oil of confidence speech. It's great for anyone who would like some extra support expressing themselves verbally. It also aids with occasional indigestion, bad breath, eases respiratory issues, skin care, helps with focus and fatigue, has calming and cooling properties and more!
Tangerine is the oil of cheer and creativity. This one can lift the darkest of moods and helps us create the lightness of heart we see in children. Tangerine reminds us to be curious and filled with wonderment and to release the excessive sense of duty and rigid standards we have for ourselves. For our physical bodies it helps boost our immune systems, antioxidant and cell protection, it;s super uplifting, helps all digestive upset, helps swelling (and cellulite!), skin irritations, respiratory issues, boosts metabolism and weight loss and helps aid circulation. Tangerine has been used for over 3000 years in integrative medicine.
Lime is the oil of zest for life. Who doesn't want more of that right?! Lime is renewing, energizing and purifying. It instills courage and cheer in the heart and helps us stay in a space of gratitude of life. For our physical bodies, it can ease an occasional sore throat, it also helps with respiratory, digestive and urinary issues, memory and clarity, it's uplifting and eases inflammation. Fun fact... lime juice used to be used by British sailors to prevent scurvy. Little gut critters don't like Lime!

Can thoughts change our life?
Do Thoughts affect the way my body feels?
If I change the way I think how will this change the course of my life?
The answer to those questions above,
Have you ever heard of mantras? Mantras are words that affirm our subconscious to shift negative habits and patterns. We can create our own mantras or practice ancient ones. Mantras historically were recited in Sanskrit. The way the Sanskrit words are pronounced evokes vibration that creates motion towards what you are manifesting.
While I was in medical school I practiced reciting 'Om Gum Ganapatayei Namah' which is the manta for removing obstacles. Then I began to write my own. Writing my own mantras I believe brought me to a deeper understand and gratitude for myself and those around me.
The words we use and speak carry meaning and and have the power to influence the way we feel, the choices we make and the reality we create.
Our minds are like complex computes. The windows you browse (your consciousness), the websites you visit, what you tweet, post on Facebook or Instagram and the kind of content you consume informs your thoughts, opinions and perceptions and guide your understanding of the world. When we shut down the computer the internet doesn't stop. It keeps thinking of those websites and post we were just looking at.
I believe this is why meditation is one of the five branches in Chinese Medicine we can not live without.
Christie Marie Sheldon said,
“If you look at the world the way I see it, you will then be tapped into the causal plane where everything can be changed. Because everything you see in the out-picturing of your life really is the effect of your life. And everything that created it was created by all your thoughts, beliefs, ideologies and every judgment you've ever made. Those points of you make up your reality. That’s why your life is the way it is.”
You are in control of your destiny, your health, the choices you make and the thoughts you create. I set myself on a quest to discover how I could be better at living. I started working with a self-realization coach. Umi taught me how to tap into my present moment awareness by observing without judgment the world around me.
Every day I work on those thoughts, giving thanks to my most close and intimate friends.
I change up my mantras here are a few that transform my feelings:
'I am a conscious creator in a field of unlimited possibilities'
'When I speak from the heart, the vibration of my beingness illuminates life'
'Stillness and solitude erupts creativity and expansion'
Dr. Emot said, “This world is filled with wonders and mysteries that get more incomprehensible if we try to think of a reason. Except for some of the truly basic things, no one disagrees that there are still so many unknowns.
We are made up of divine energy and should treat ourselves like so.
Shocking Neurotoxins: Pollutants We Didn't Know That Are Killing Our Home
10 Statistics you want to know.
So there I was riding along in the Van enjoying my vacation away from the cruise ships. Then all of a sudden I get this wiff of that purple cleaner that reminds me of my life living in Spain a lifetime ago.
It was the kind of smell that stops you in your tracks, blinds you and has you holding your breath, dying of suffocation and grasping for air as you run about a block down the road.
You know that feeling right?
Let me tell you something. I'm not a scientist or some know it all but I know this much, when I worked on Yachts I sure the hell didn't use any of those toxic chemicals. We learn in Chief Stewardess school, cleaning with toxins is not cleaning. I'm learning every day how much of these chemicals are killing us in our own home.
Check this out:
kid's these days have chemical exposures from birth that their parents didn't have until they were adults. Now that children are exposed to toxins at an earlier age than adults, there is more of a chance to develop a disease like cancer.
Every heard of Formaldehyde? A total cancer-causing agent that damages the body's neurological connectors.
Every day more chemicals have been introduced into our environment in the last 20 years.
For example, bleach can cause suffocation and most of us have used bleach to 'Clean'. There is more.
Looks at these wild numbers.
- 150 chemicals in the home are connected to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological disorders.
- Out of 2,435 pesticide poisoning in a one year period, over 40% were due to exposure to disinfectants and similar cleaning products in the home.
- Most Laundry detergent contains a substance (NTA) that we may anticipate to be a carcinogen.
- 884 chemicals found in personal care products are toxic
- 146 chemicals found in personal care cause tumors
- 218 chemicals cause reproductive complications
- 314 cause biological mutation
- Liquid dish soap is the leading cause of poisoning in the home for children under the age of six because they contain formaldehyde and ammonia.
Infants, toddlers, chronically ill and the Elderly are affected by indoor chemical concentration because their spend more time indoors and their immune system is weaker.
There are some great recipes on how to make your own cleaning products. I have a lot of success with Dr. Bronner's soap, vinegar or alcohol as my base and essential oils.
