Metabolism Power

Metabolism Power
This critical function is regulated by your thyroid and your digestive health.  It's hard to say which is more important.  If you have been exposed to too many products that have hormone disrupters, your thyroid function will diminish.  If your diet contains too many processed foods, GMOs, sugar and bad fats, your digestive path will lead to physical and mental fatigue. 

It's all relative!  A slow metabolism can be the direct result of....

The Power of Sleep

The Power of Sleep
Improving sleep is one of the first things addressed on my 28 Day Health Challenge - it is that important.  

Have you ever heard the saying that you heal while you sleep? well, it's true, there are hundreds of evidence based trials that prove the body heals while in sleep mode.  

Rejuvenation requires a state of rest for the body to repair.   

That's why sleep is critical to our daily replenishment of energy at the cellular level and to reduce mental stress.   Lack of rest and sleep creates...

Gary's Great Day Protocol / The Angelic Shield
At the last Young Living Day on 10 July - we were talking about the special YL day promotions one of which is a beautifully boxed set of Gary's Great Day Protocol essential oils.

Pets and Essential Oils

Pets and Essential Oils

A topic I am very passionate about is using essential oils with our pets!  The animals in our care depend on us for everything: food and water, grooming and general health.  That's why there's nothing worse than seeing them in pain.  Just as with any emergency, it's important to stay calm, keep panic to a minimum and have a response plan.  This can make all the difference.  Animals sense your emotions, often through smell, and the best way to keep them calm is to be calm yourself.  

The key to using essential oils with pets is to always go very slowly - don't rush and don't push.  Your animal will respond better to essential oils if they are comfortable with you and the odours.  Additionally, you don't want to create any negative experiences or promote any adverse reactions.  Animals are very sensitive to odours and may find a new smell too intense.  (Horses choose their own oils!)  

Pets have lots of "emotional" triggers, as they pick up their owners stress and emotional state - so keep calm yourself with Stress Away and/or Peace & Calming blends!   

Your pets are deeply affected by your moods and your emotional well-being, and they deserve to get the same benefits from genuine essential oils - just like you do!  

I often use the same blends for animals that I do for myself.  Oils like Trauma Life, Thieves, Stress Away, Peace & Calming and Valor are a few of my favourites; but I use lots more!  

Recently the pet blends produced by Young Living have been available in Europe, and they are amazing!

Aromatherapy Awareness Week

Aromatherapy Awareness Week

Aromatherapy Awareness Week is an annual national campaign hosted by the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) to raise awareness of the clinical benefits of aromatherapy. Returning for its 13th year running, it seeks to educate the public about the difference aromatherapy can make to your life and the lives of people in your care. As we emerge from lockdown, there is increasing evidence that the many ramifications of the pandemic has had a negative impact on the Nation's mental health. To address this challenge, this year's Week is an opportunity to highlight how the unique therapeutic qualities of essential oils can bring balance to our mental well-being naturally, as well as being a key therapeutic intervention in healthcare. 

This campaign is brought to life by a multitude of individuals and companies who come together to organise events and activities throughout the UK, drawing attention to the important role aromatherapy has in healthcare management. This awareness campaign is a unique opportunity for all clinical aromatherapists and service suppliers in the industry to do something pro-active to raise the profile of aromatherapy.

As part of the Aromatherapy Week, I would like to offer a free session of the Aroma Freedom Technique for anyone who is struggling with the effects of the recent lockdowns - if you are anxious about the future, or having upsetting memories of the past, an Aroma Freedom session will almost certainly help you.  

The session would normally be £60 but I am offering this session for just £5 to cover the cost of the Memory Release Blend of oils and the postage,  you will use during the session.

  4. Decreases gas, bloating and indigestion by speeding up the breakdown of food.
