Epiphany

So, I was on my way to a Natural Solutions class this morning as usual looking forward to sharing my  love for essential oils with people looking to live a healthier lifestyle. Life is good.

diet

I am not much of a potty mouth but tonight I wanted to talk about one of the most reviled four letter words around! I am of course referring to the word diet. Now diet can simply refer to what you are eating, as in “my diet consists of leafy greens, complex carbs” etc. But […]

herbs for health

Do any of you use herbs as health enhancers as well as flavor enhancers? If not, you should. Many of the common herbs that we use in cooking are great for improving health.
