Plant Intelligence: New Research Shows Plants Are Just as Smart as Humans
In my many years of working with Natural Health Therapies a dominant pattern has been a mainstay - "What is GOOD for the ENVIRONMENT is GOOD for US!" For decades I have been counseling clients to avoid chemical based sunscreens such as oxybenzone & octinoxate. Research shows that these chemical based sunscreen ingredients are hormonal disruptors and may lead to cell damage and potentially cause skin cancer. Not only are these sunscreen chemicals harmful to us, they damage aquatic life including the Coral Reefs! Shall we connect the dots... substances that are Harmful to Humans are usually Harmful to the ENVIRONMENT! Solution: use mineral based sunblock products, look for such ingredients as Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide.
Chemical sunscreens are a form of pollution. Pollutants are not only causing destruction of the natural world but are powerful co-factors in many of mankind most deadly health conditions.

Indeed Breathe is Life! Our life force, the Prana (life energy force). In all things there is a silver lining. A striking phenomena has occurred due to reduced human activity of the Sars-CoV2 Pandemic - CLEAN AIR! Pollution in Urban areas is a Co-Factor that negatively affects anyone with underlying Lung issues. Rates of Childhood Asthma are higher in areas of high pollution. With the world on quarantine car/ vehicle traffic has been dramatically reduced. The benefit of less automobile traffic is the potential for improved lung Health. This in turn, can reduce our risk for respiratory problems. Nothing is better than long walks in fresh clean air, preferably in open Natural surroundings. Without cars we also are without urban noise; honking, road rage, sirens. In the new found stillness - listen to the sounds of nature, bird song, rustling of wind, as you breathe deeply into your lungs. Breathe slowly and relaxed, expand the lungs fully, allowing for complete oxygenation - exhale fully allowing waste to release. Simple, deep Breathing has an amazing healing effect - Take Daily with a dose of Sunshine - wear appropriate garb - include a smile!
Sing, chant or whistle as you walk= let your joy bubble up and out!
Infectious Disease has been part of mankind's existence since the human race began. Man has dealt with caring for its sick with plant medicine for just as long. Aromatherapy is a branch of botanical medicine that can be beneficial during times of infectious illness. Many essential oils have anti-infectious properties. If you have a household member who is vulnerable and needs to be quarantined, they should be in a closed room preferably with their own bathroom. Diffuse essential oils into the air to disinfect the space. Electric Aromatherapy diffusors are a good choice. Anyone entering the room should wear a fresh face mask and latex gloves (disposable). The face mask should be disinfected after use. Air out the room when possible, sunshine is a good disinfectant via the Ultra Violet Rays from the sun. Indeed there is no such thing as a sterile environment and we ultimately rely on our immune system to fight off invading pathogens.....more to come in next post.......
In the beginning of the Corona Virus outbreak in the USA, there was much confusion about whether or not Face masks worked. Surgical masks are approved for protection against coughs & sneezes, but may only be available for health care providers due to shortages. Cloth masks are now being recommended by CDC health officials. To increase the effectiveness of a cloth mask, sprinkle a few drops of Tea tree oil on the mask. Tree tree oil is antimicrobial and beneficial in fighting off germs & microbes. When wearing the mask, you will have 2 benefits- Disinfecting the outer air space & breathing in the vapors of the tea tree oil. Breathing in the Aromatic vapor is beneficial for the lungs. Wash & disinfect the mask when returning home. AromaFace has formulated Virex Spray with a more potent combination of botanicals; USES; spray on masks, disinfect personal air space, surfaces, shopping cart handles, packaged grocery items. To order.
Corona Virus- Essential oils are wonderful allies when fighting infection of all kinds. Corona virus is no exception. Thus far using a variety of Aromatherapy methods, we are helping people to stay well and aid in recovery.
