It’s fruit fly season, at least in my neck of the woods. Here are a couple great ways to use your essential oils to keep them away. BASIL, PEPPERMINT, EUCALYPTUS: These are a few of the essential oils that deter fruit flies. Placing these in muslin sacks, or tea bags and hanging them around the house will deter fruit flies.They can’t stand the smell.  Or add a couple drops of each oil on a cotton ball or pad and place around the areas where the fruit flies tend to gather. Try diffusing 4 drops basil, 3 drops peppermint and 3 drops Eucalyptus Image by: https://www.pinclipart.com/pindetail/oRwJwJ_the-majority-of-fruit-flies-are-alcoholics-flies/Read More →

Depression

Are you 1 of millions of people who suffer from a decrease in energy, emotional imbalance and  the “Blues” during the fall and winter seasons? The Winter Blues is real.  In fact, in the early 1980’s, a researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health by the name of Norman Rosenthal established that humans showed signs of depression during the fall and winter months, times when less sunlight appears each day.   These symptoms would only occur during the fall and winter months, and would virtually disappear during the spring and summer months when sunlight is at its longest daylight rotation. Rosenthal “described winter depression asRead More →

Botox Injection Dangers

I’ve had Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome since I was in Junior High.  Stress and anxiety has always played the #1 roll in my daily jaw clenching and teeth grinding, and I have worn a bite splint at night, off and on, for a couple decades.  But the clenching and grinding continue.   This past week, during my 6 month dental cleaning appointment, my dentist looked at my x-rays with alarm.  I have been his patient for over 25 years.  The X-rays showed I had been clenching more often, and it is causing harm to my teeth, gums and nerves.  It has never been determinedRead More →

What Are Essential Oils and How Do They Work

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?   Essential oils are potent, aromatic, volatile liquid that comes from plants, shrubs, trees, bushes, roots, seeds and flowers. Volatility of plants is what give them their special characteristics and aroma. Essential oils are the essence (the life blood) of the plant that allows for the plant to repair itself, ward off pests and even other plants from invading their space.   There are two methods used to extract essential oils from a plant. One is by steam distillation and the other is by cold pressing.   Steam Distillation can be quite complex and the processRead More →

One Hundred Percent Pure

I became a bit concerned after a friend asked me some questions about what an essential oil she bought at Joann Fabrics did, and not in a good way.  This oil, ladies and gentlemen, regardless of whether it said 100% pure, or “therapeutic” is absolutely not pure.  It’s laden with chemicals, pesticides and adulterated with goodness knows what, and definitely diluted with some kind of carrier oil.  Did you know that the FDA does not regulate essential oil companies?  Because of this, many companies also add additives, floral water, adulterate or dilute the essential oil to keep the cost down?  This could be hexane, toRead More →
