Let the Sunshine in!

Yesterday was warm enough to open the the Garage door and let in the sun and fresh air! It was wonderful to be able to take in the energy from Main St. again! I feel like I have been living in a cave all winter. Wilson was drawing on the pavement with chalk, people were having coffee on the porch, and it really felt like SPRING!

This one day class is all about bringing pure essential oils into your life at a time of the year that we are all emerging from winter and looking towards spring and new days.

We will focus on the adrenal glands and what pure essential oils help them gear us up for spring thaw. Along with the adrenals we will also discuss the effect of certain essential oils on other parts of the body and how and why they should be a part of our daily use at this time of year.

The class is three hours long and is broken up into 60 minute intervals with the beginning hour being about pure essential oils and the need for them in our life. We will also go over essential oil purity, safety and usage.

The second hour will be spent blending oils for a specific use. You will have the choice of making a spritzers, massage & body oils or hand/body wash which you will take with you for use at home.

The third hour will focus on how, why and where you should use this product and other products to ensure your health and well being in the coming months. There will also be time for questions and discussions during the last hour.

There will be 10 minute breaks through out the day.

Whole foods!

Ok, here I am mid week 2 of this whole foods, vegetarian eating regime. I have discovered a few things: there is A LOT of chewing, a Lot of prep time, and salt is a must! Also it can be a bit expensive, but all food is expensive these days. Anyway, I like to cook so it has been fun to experiment with with new flavors, grains, and ways of doing things. The best part of all is, I have lost 3 pounds- must be all those calories I am burning from the chewing!
Time to pack up for the gallerage, I am working on a fabulous lamp shade...
