Pregnancy Essential Oils

I have the wonderful opportunity to vendor at a Family Exposition event in my hometown, and that is what prompted me to write this blog post.  I prepared myself for questions I may be asked from new mothers and those expecting at the exposition.  I would like to share what I learned so you can have a good night’s sleep knowing you are using the right kinds of essential oils during your pregnancy, at each stage of your pregnancy, and when you are breast feeding. Essential oils can play an important role, emotionally and physically, during your pregnancy.  You still want to be able toRead More →

Amazing Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender! I can’t say enough about this Nature’s gift. First let me say that I have issues with most fragrances, especially floral, and Lavender flowers being a big one. But…not the oils that are steamed distilled from the flowers. You see, when you are allergic to scents and skin allergies, it’s certain parts of the plants you are allergic to, like pollen, but when you extract the oils from these plants, the allergen parts of the plant are not what you get.  You just get an amazing oil.

Lemongrass Panaway for Arthritis Pain

Lavendar, Lavandin, Essential Oils

First let’s talk about the Botanical family to which these two species belong.  Both are a part of the Lamiacea botanical family and they all have  the name Lavender (Lavandula) in common.  The full botanical names of each plant is Lavandula angustifolia, which is “True Lavender”, and Lavandula x intermedia, which is Lavandin, often passed off in essential oils as “Lavender”, which it is, but it’s very different in many ways from “True Lavender” (Lavandula angustifolia) in regards to it’s properties and what the essential oil’s intention is. As I mentioned above, Lavandula angustifolia, is “True Lavendar” in its purest form, and is the oilsRead More →
