Essential Oil Chakra Blends 

I am so excited to be putting these together! I had to cleanse and charge the crystals before mindfully putting them into each chakra blend. I meditated and put so much good vibes and love into each bottle. Keeping our chakras open and balanced is critical for the overall health of our mind, body and spirit.  Using gemstone and plant vibrations that resonate with our energy centers, along with affirmations,  is a beautiful way to begin to find harmony.  

•Root: black tourmaline; cypress, sandalwood, balance, vetiver and cedarwood. I AM.

•Sacral: carnelian; clary sage, patchouli, bergamot,  ylang and wild orange I FEEL.

•Solar plexus: citrine; cinnamon, coriander, ginger, clove, and peppermint. I DO.  

•Heart: rose quartz; lavender, cypress, lemon, orange, whisper and sandalwood I LOVE.

•Throat: sodalite; bergamot, peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus and lavender. I SPEAK.

•3rd eye: amethyst; cedarwood, lemongrass, frankincense, marjoram, sandalwood. I SEE. 

 •Crown: quartz crystal; frankincense, myrrh, Roman chamomile, lavender and rosemary. I UNDERSTAND. 

*Also each blend has a clear quartz crystal inside to amplify the crystals chosen in each blend. 

Message me if you would like to purchase a set of these love filled blends.

Joy 

I’m not sure about you all but my weekend was packed full of joy. Sushi, hikes, nap time, rib eyes, more nap time, reading, lotsa love and time grooming the pooch. She loves the spa time and I must say it’s a nice change from my typical weekend chores. 

Self care is soooo important and making the time to nurture your mind, body and spirit is what it’s all about.  Even Zuni the dog is for it!

No more sugar

My weight-loss journey and dedication to health began about nine years ago and throughout those years I have been a vegetarian eater, a paleo eater and a few things in between. The last two years I have eliminated most dairy, grains, some meats, legumes and a host of other items.  Through all the choices, I had held on to a belief that I needed wine and chocolate. Never in a zillion years would I have considered that I would not be eating cookies and dark chocolate regularly. A daily glass of wine, or two, was standard.  Until the last two months.

I have had a total of about three glasses of wine in the last two months. Up until I taste-tested a holiday cookie yesterday, I had been completely cookie and chocolate free.

Was it worth it? Not at all.  The cookie tasted horrible despite my family raving about its goodness.  Totally not worth it.

Our bodies are amazing in the their ability to adapt to what we put into them and how we nurture them. I have learned through this recent change that sugar is indeed a powerful addition that can be overcome.  Since ditching the sugar I have noticed clearer thoughts, better sleep, increased energy, and overall sense of well-being.  I was certain that before the wine and chocolate elimination I felt great, but it has become evident to me that now I feel really great. Clean, clear and no longer at the mercy of sugar.

Give it a try.  Really, give it a try.  You can get off the sugar drug and you can increase your vitality.  It is not easy but once you are over the withdrawal hump, it is amazing how easy it is to say no.
