Three Essential Oils that will bring more relaxation into you life.
Anxiety - Frankincense with its sweet woody aroma, grounds our body in the earth to remind us of our life’s purpose, while also activating the spiritual center of our soul wherein the stillness of the moment brings calm to the movement of what is the next step on our journey. Anxiety is replaced with a sense of purpose, enlightened by peace, calm and trust.
Insomnia - Neroli with its spicy, floral aroma brings a sense of calm to the mind, while gently releasing the fight or flight response in the body caused by fear, stress and even trauma. Put a few drops on a tissue and stuff into the top part of your pillow to bring forth a soothing night’s sleep.
Exhaustion - Rosemary with its spicy herbaceous aroma is known to activate the memory center in the brain, while also clearing away blockages in the body. It is the favorite go-to oil for students studying at night and especially while taking a test. It is also the go-to oil when driving long distances at night to keep the senses alert and focused.
The earth has stories to tell to those who are willing to listen.
Three foods that make your skin healthy and glowing.
Turmeric - Turmeric is one of India’s most widely used spices and has an anti-inflammatory effect. When applied topically, curcumin, which is the antioxidant present in turmeric, helps fight redness and skin irritation.
Avocado - We’ve all heard that this green fruit is a great source of vitamin E (which can help boost the skin’s luminosity). But did you know it’s also a great source of vitamin C and healthy fats, which keep your skin supple and smooth?
Radishes - Radishes are home to antioxidants that give your skin that lit-from-within glow. They are more than 90% water, which makes them super hydrating, and rich in silicon and sulfur – two things that will boost your skin health and build stronger, healthier hair.

Cordycep mushrooms - Cordycep mushrooms are powerful antioxidants with anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and fatigue combatting properties. Cordyceps have also been associated with increased libido by restoring sexual hormones.
Ashwaganda - Ashwaganda helps your body reduce cortisol and combat stress. Ashwaganda aids the body in lowering cortisol; when consumed on a regular basis, it will help relax and balance you from the inside out.
Moringa Oleifera - Moringa oleifera leaves include vital trace minerals such as magnesium, selenium, potassium, calcium and iron – all of which are essential for cell and skin health. Moringa is also an excellent source of energy without caffeine or added stimulants.

This article by Rebecca Bass-Ching : "When we don’t believe we are enough – that we are doing enough, or that there is enough opportunity in the world for us – then a scarcity mindset is in the driver’s seat where you belong. Scarcity is a cocktail of shame; it’s obsessive comparison and competition, and a disengagement from taking risks which may result in failure, being misunderstood or being seen as flawed. Living from a scarcity mindset leads to emotional exhaustion and constant distrust."
