Dirty Little Secrets of the Fragrance Industry

The fragrance industry doesn’t want you to know about their dirty little secrets… that your favorite perfume or cologne is more than likely a complex concoction of natural essences and synthetic chemicals. They take chemicals from their stockpile of 3,100 chemical ingredients, often made from petrochemicals to produce some of the best smelling, allergy-inducing, hormone disrupting, headache causing fragrances in the world. What they don’t tell you about is that many of these chemicals present potential health risks and build up in people’s bodies and pollute it. Since our skin is our largest organ much more attention needs to be paid to what we are putting on our skin. What you put on your skin gets absorbed into the body very quickly, not to mention that you are also inhaling these chemicals when you either apply them to the skin, or spray your favorite perfume, hair spray, air freshener, etc. … Continue reading

How to Re-Liquefy Thick Oils Like Myrrh and Vetiver

Anyone who’s had a bottle of Myrrh or Vetiver essential oil for awhile knows how difficult it can be to get those oils to drip out of the bottle, as they thicken over time. Recently I needed to find a way to re-liquefy Myrrh in order to use to use it for a facial oil I was making. My bottle of Myrrh had thickened over time and was way too thick, and I couldn’t get it to drip out of the bottle. Someone had posted a tip saying to place the bottle in the freezer. I thought, strange but I’ll try it… NOPE, didn’t work. Then I found this tip to warm up the oil. That tip sounded a little more promising but I wanted to protect the label on the bottle so I placed the bottle in a small ziploc plastic bag and pushed out as much air as … Continue reading

Essential Oils for Your New Years Resolutions

Essential oils may be the answer you’ve been looking for all those New Years resolutions just waiting for implementation. Many people are inspired each January 1st to make New Years resolutions. You may be one of those people. Sadly though, even with the best of intentions one can quickly succumb to old habits and old ways of thinking. Fortunately though, essential oils may help you experience success this time around.

Getting Kids to Clean Their Room… with Essential Oils!

Getting kids to clean their room is a battle most parents struggle with but recent research shows it may be easier than we thought… and the answer may be as simple as diffusing citrus essential oils.

Once the receptors identify an odor, nerve cells relay this information directly to the limbic system. The olfactory nerve cells are the only sensory … Continue reading

Healthy Immune Systems

As we move into the fall and winter seasons it’s more important than ever to make sure that we are maintaining and supporting strong, healthy immune systems. A strong immune system is our best protection against germs and makes it harder for them to gain a foothold. In today’s environment it’s more important than ever to have a healthy immune system, and just good common sense! There are a few things I feel that are indispensable as we move into the fall and winter seasons…. I refer to them as “winter wellness must’s… as in “MUST HAVES!” or in some cases “MUST DO’s!” Some are common knowledge like being sure to cover our mouth when we sneeze or cough, and simply washing our hands with plain old soap and water more frequently while also avoiding touching our mouth, nose and eyes with our hands, as that is an easy way … Continue reading

What’s Lurking In Your Cabinets?

Have you ever wondered what’s lurking in your cabinets as you look at the stash of cleaning products residing there? Unfortunately most household cabinets are full of harmful, toxic cleaners and many people, if not most, are unaware of the dangers they pose to our health. Our home is our sanctuary- it should be a place of rest, relaxation and wellness… a safe haven for our loved ones (including our beloved pets), and friends, not a place of environmental pollution. As we strive to create a safe, healthy environment in our home it’s important to learn what hidden dangers may be lurking there and then work to systematically remove them. Surprisingly government regulations don’t require manufacturers to list all ingredients, just those that are combustible, corrosive, poisonous, etc. Most household cleaning products contain toxic chemicals like ammonia, formaldehyde, phthalates, benzalkonium chlorid, and 2-butoxyethanol, just to name a few. Among the … Continue reading
