Vaporising & Diffusing - The How To!

One of the quickest and easiest ways to use essential oils is to vaporise or diffuse them. Both vaporising and diffusing have the power to effect everyone in the room in a positive way and due to the antiseptic and antibacterial qualities of high quality essential oils this method of use can also help to ward off bugs and enhance everyone’s mood.

How To Get Off The Stress Express With Sandalwood

She believes women have less energy and are now more stressed than ever. A lot of women have fathers jobs as well as mothers responsibilities. She said one needs to think of energy levels like a bank account. If you are not depositing (with things like eating healthy, sleeping well, meditating, exercising, getting sunshine and doing all the other ‘right' things) and always withdrawing, even going into overdraft, you will soon pay interest.  ...
