"You've Got This" Relaxed Focus Inhaler Blend

Our situations are all different but for certain we are all adapting to new normals. In light of that I want to share an inhaler blend that offers a combination of essential oils that are both relaxing and help support focus. Inhalers are like personal diffusers. They consist of a metal or plastic case and a cotton wick that holds the essential oils. They are portable and easy to use anywhere. You can carry them in your pocket, purse, have one by your computer, or bedside. They can be used over and over for weeks or months if capped after each use and they can be created for all sorts of therapeutic needs -- head ache, sleep support, nausea, focus, stress relief, allergy support, sinus suppo

Take a Deep Breath and Relax -- Calming and Soothing Essential Oils

How are you doing? Things have been pretty chaotic lately to say the least as cornoavirus and COVID-19 concerns are a new normal for our nation and the world.

What do Tea Tree, Marjoram, and Makrut Lime Essential Oils have in Common? (And Why You Might Care)

At first glance Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree), Citrus hystrix (makrut lime), and Origanum majorana (sweet marjoram) may seem as different as apples and oranges but a look at their chemistry reveals some beneficial similarities. Tea tree is well known for its antimicrobial benefits. It's found in many soaps, shampoos, and cleaning products. Research reveals that its terpenes: terpinen-4-ol, gamma terpinene, and alpha terpineol offer antibacterial (1, 2, 3), antiviral (4,5) , and anti-fungal benefits (6,7,8). Mixtures of monoterpenes appear to work better than the isolated monoterpenes. Marjoram, like tea tree, also offers germ fighting terpinen-4-ol, gamma terpinene, and alpha terpineol i

Time for Thyme -- the Benefits of the Herb and Essential Oil

Thyme is any aromatic perennial from the genus Thymus. A relative of oregano genus Origanum, thyme has both culinary and medicinal uses. Thymus vulgaris is most commonly cultivated for culinary and medicinal purposes. Other species of thyme include T. citriodorus such as lemon thyme, T. herba-barona or caraway thyme, and T. serpyllum, a wild, creeping thyme that is famous for wild thyme honey found in Greece and Malta. Additionally, there are a few members of the thyme family that are used as ground cover (T. pseudolanuginosus and T. praecox for example). Culinary thyme can be used in everything from salad dressings to stews and has a long history of uses. The Egyptians used thyme to embalm.
