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 only requires a company to add only 5% of actual “essential oil” to a bottle and the rest can be whatever they want to add to keep the cost down?  This couldRead More →

What can Lavender essential oil do? Let’s just say if I could only have one oil withRead More →

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 →
