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.

Lemongrass Panaway for Arthritis Pain

When my mom was in her late 40s, she constantly complained about pain in her wrists and in her hands.  I remember how much she used to love to garden, but then I realized she was not doing so much of that anymore, so I asked her why.  She told me it was because her hands hurt so much and that she had a hard time holding the tools to garden with.  Well, now I am about that same age and I have begun to start to feel the same in my hands, especially my fingers and the ligaments around my thumb and forefinger.  IRead More →

Panaway Young Living Essential Oils

“Woops, my booty felt that one!” Well, I live in northern Michigan, where the winters are anything but predictable.  Several days ago I took a nice brisk walk to check my mailbox, no mail yet!  So, I started back toward my house and “Woop”, down I went.  Black ice underneath a very light dusting of snow caused me to slip and fall straight on my left butt cheek.  “Ouch,” that hurt.  Of course I quickly looked around to see if anyone saw me fall first before I realized I fell on my butt.  Everything seemed fine, up until a couple hours later when my lowerRead More →
