Carrier oils, or base oils, are plant based oils used to dilute essential oils for topical use. They can also be used to make body scrubs, face masks and used for hydration and massage in general. There are soooo many to choose from, so how do you know which will work best for your needs? here ya go! This is a great place to start in learning about carrier oils. A wonderful resource for naming the main constituents, vitamins, thickness and useage for popular plant based carrier oils. My favorites are still coconut for body and rosehip, tamanu, grapeseed, jojoba and avocado for face!

Our minds govern our physical bodies. We become what we thing, focus on and suppress. I love how this simple chart shows just some of the many ways our emotions are manifested physically in our bodies. This is one of the main reasons I do so much massage and practice mindfulness in my treatments.

Enjoy! Now, go meditate and get a massage!!

The Vitamin Deficiency Causing Your Wrinkles

Hmmm, very interesting! I know that vitamin deficiency is a hige problem for our modern diet and lifestyle. Most of us are not drinking homemade broths, eating organ meats, or getting enough greens and fermented foods. Even our soil is depleted heavily, which means that the healthiest foods can still fall short! Vit K: think healthy fats, grasses, legumes, greens and bone broth…is now considered a MAJOR player in keeping our skin youthful. In addition, Vit K is helpful for preventing inflammation and chronic illnesses. I’d put it right up there with Vit D. Unless you are eating bone broth and tons of greens daily – you may want to consider the possibility of a Vit K deficiency.

I love this resource for suggesting the food sources of impt vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients: http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/the-vitamin-deficiency-that-is-written-all-over-your-face/

So, go eat a salad, your skin will thank you!
