I LOVE cooking with oils, especially oregano and basil! They are my go-tos when replacing dried herbs! 🌿
Did you know that essential oils are 50-75% more potent than dried herbs? Which means a little goes a LONG way! 💧
I added just one drop of oregano to my hamburger meat for our spaghetti sauce and it added just the right amount of spice!
Oregano is one of the most powerful and potent oils I have in my arsenal, but use with caution because it is a HOT oil. You should always dilute it with a carrier oil before applying it to the skin! 🤚🏻
It is great to take internally for healthy digestion and respiratory function! And oregano also acts as a powerful cleansing agent, and offers powerful antioxidants! 🍒
Talk about one versatile oil! 😍
Cheers! Jason and I are healthy happy-houring over here🥂🍷

Just do yourselves a favor and make your afternoon ✨sparkle✨!!! There's no need for soda because the magicness of wolfberries in NR give me energy during that afternoon slump. Plus, it does all kinds of magnificent things for my eyes, hair, nails, heart, and all the other things that need all the attention. : Sparkle courtesy of the cerise limon water. .
“Mom, we’re going to sit in here & read our bibles, okay?”
Why did they think to do this? Because Mom reads hers everyday, they say. Earlier they asked me to do a workout with them. Why? “We want to workout because Mom does it everyday.” They were also encouraging their daddy to get exercise like Mom does!
Why do I share this? To prove that OUR habits become THEIR habits. We’ve all got good ones & bad ones... but let’s try to create more good ones. They matter! #monkeyseemonkeydo#powerfulstuff#betheexample#youcandoit
How fast do essential oils work? This is the fun stuff - SCIENCE! Who doesn’t want to know WHY and HOW the things that work, work!? If you are a skeptic by nature, or tend to think of essential oils as some kind of “green” or “modern hippie” fad, think again. These babies have been around and utilized as long as humans have been here, and the basis of how oils affect our minds and bodies is all in the brain.
When we inhale the molecules of an essential oil, they enter into the cells of a set of structures called the Limbic System. Included inside the limbic system of the deep brain is the Amygdala and Hippocampus. Our Amygdala is responsible for storing emotion and emotional memory, whereas the Hippocampus stores memories. Both of these deep-brain structures live within an inch of the olfactory nerve. It is well-documented that our sense of smell is the most powerful of the five senses for triggering memories and emotional response. Fear and trauma are often the types of memories that end up stored here, which is why certain essential oils can have such a profound effect in releasing our emotions - even long-held or fairly intense ones. Essential oils reach the olfactory nerve so quickly once inhaled, 22 seconds, making them amazingly fast and safe tools for supporting a calm and centered energy when we are simply feeling overwhelmed with life.
I gave a speech at my incredible dad Michael’s 60th on the weekend and it dawned on me how powerful the process was! I spent so much time intentionally focussed on recalling all the amazing memories and qualities of my dad. I asked my family to share any beautiful stories about him with me over the weeks leading up to the party, which then got them intentionally focussed on feeling and sharing the love till I literally was in love with everyone!! I have always loved my amazing dad but when your soul focus is on finding reasons to love someone - it takes it to a whole other level!!! I was a ball of love up on stage, to the point of tears. You truly do get what you focus on, so I feel newly inspired to intentionally look for reasons to love everyone. As though I am due to give a grand speech to honour them. #feelingthelove#somuchlove#powerfulstuff#focus#love#intention#yougetwhatyoufocuson#seeklove#appreciation#kindness#compassion#joy#believeittoseeit#lovemydad
So excited to see this #historic site. This is where #aynrand had her inspiration for the seminal #atlasshrugged . Legend has it she was backpacking through Japan and saw this #sculpture at #shibuyacrossing . Who could forget the quote "atlas lifted the entire world by the bootstraps onto his shoulders. He saw the plight of the workers and even though there there was maximum strain he shrugged extra as if the weight was regular." #powerfulstuff
