Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

I'm Tired....

These things have been on my mind & in my heart for a very long time and there is this pull for me to say them. I do not wish to offend, piss off, slam anyone, but I need to say these things.

I'm tired of the inhumane way humans treat each other.
I'm tired of certain religions being in my face & crammed down my throat every time I turn around.
I'm tired of having to be politically correct.
I'm tired of corporate America running this country into the ground.
I'm tired of certain political parties putting the screws to the people.
I'm tired of people destroying the beautiful planet we live on...it is our ONLY home.
I'm tired of the way people mistreat & abuse animals, if only by neglect.
I'm tired of the U.S.A. always being the policemen of the world...not our job!!!
I'm tired of the certain races always thinking they are better & deserve more than others.
I'm tired of those that think they are entitled & above the law.
I'm tired of people not following the rules and/or laws.
I'm tired of the gov't having their noses in most every aspect of our lives.
I'm tired of the govt forcing people to have the toxic vaccines.
I'm tired of the govt & corporate America poisoning us with their stupid gmo's.
I'm tired of the Christians & corporate holidays where all that matters is that almighty dollar.
I'm tired of money ruling & ruining humanity.
I'm tired of all the damn stupidass commercials on tv.
I'm tired of the selfishness of people.
I'm tired of all the debauchery and the human trafficking.
I'm tired of the lying, fraud, greed, corruption & back biting.
I'm tired of the ones that fall thru the cracks of society simply because they don't have enough.
I'm tired of the way corporate america treats it's workers.
I'm tired of people not taking responsibility for their own actions.
I'm tired of people playing the race card for their own convenience.
I'm tired of all the judgemental haters just because you disagree with a lifestyle or a choice or even a thought!

I don't believe in the jesus that came & supposedly saved mankind from itself. I believe in the jesus that was born to bring love & compassion to mankind...what happened?

I don't believe Christianity is the only religion that is important, everyone must find their own path that feels right with them. For you spout you are Christian yet you sure don't act like one nor heed your great 'saviors' words. What about the bible verses?? Judge not lest ye be judged? Love one another? and so on. More people have been killed in the name of Christianity than in any other religion & yet every time I turn around, there it is in my face or shoving it down my throat. What if the Muslims, the Jews, the Hindu, the Buddhists, the Wiccans, the other pagans, the Native Americans, the Celts did the same as what the Christians do....hmmmm??? Hell all these special holidays have pagan roots, not christian. Doesn't everyone have the right to worship & be on their own path that feels right to them??? People like what other religions have to say about things, but are afraid to change or take a stand....Christianity rules by fear and that isn't right. I guess it started with the Romans or even before then. I don't have a problem with the religion per say, it's the followers. Actually, I find other religions very insightful & interesting!! Sure there are extremes in every religion...even Christianity. The Muslims are more faithful & more devoted than a lot of other religions, after all, they pray at least 5 times a day!! Now that's a lot! When was the last time you prayed five times a day??

I am ashamed of what has happened to humanity.

It's interesting this was written over 7 years ago and since then it's gotten so much worse, what happened???? From what I see, it's gonna get a whole lot worse before it gets better. It's difficult to keep a positive & loving attitude.

10 Reasons Why You Should Try Essential Oils.....

1. Essential oils are anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-macrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-infectious and antiseptic. They can combat infectious disease by killing off viruses, bacteria or other pathogens. Some oils have been shown to destroy all tested viruses and bacteria.

2. Essential oils can act on both your mind and your body. Their aromas can be stimulating both psychologically and physically, as well as calming and sedating. Inhaling aromas is extremely powerful. Aromatic stimuli of your limbic system cause the release of neurotransmitters, including pain-reducing encephalin, pleasure-producing endorphins, relaxing serotonin, and stimulating noradrenaline.

3. Essential oils are some of the most powerful known antioxidants. (Determined by an ORAC developed by Tuft University).

4. Essential oils are capable of penetrating your cell membranes since they are lipid-soluble. According to Jean V. MD, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes, and are then metabolized like other nutrients. An anti-biotic cannot penetrate your cell’s wall.
5. Essential oils detoxify your cells and your blood.

6. Essential purify the air by eliminating odors from cooking, animals, mold, bacteria and other sources.

7. Essential oils are small enough to penetrate every tissue in your skin.

8. According to researchers at Vienna University, essential oils stimulate blood flow, which increases your nutrient and oxygen delivery.

9. Essential oils can be administered in two ways, either topically or through aromatherapy and therapeutic grade essential oils can be ingested in certain instances. When applied topically and inhaled, essential oils are  absorbed immediately into your blood stream. Oils used aromatically don’t have to go through your digestive system, so they work immediately in your body.

10. The essential oils’ versatility makes them fairly inexpensive to use. One bottle goes a long way and can be used for many different ailments. For example, lavender oil helps with relaxation, sleep, bug bites, eczema and burns.
