As many of you know, there was a significant 6.1 magnitude earthquake on Saturday night. Many of you have written asking if Chris and I are ok. Luckily, we are about 50 miles from the epicenter and while we did get a good jolt, there was only minor damage in our area. The people of Napa however have suffered major damage and some significant injuries so we ask that you keep them in your thoughts.

A magnitude-6.0 earthquake rattled through Northern California early Sunday morning, the largest temblor to hit the Napa Valley area in nearly 25 years.

We all know about the everyday power of scent: how a particular perfume reminds you of your mother, or when the smell of your favourite restaurant brings you back to your first date there. But did you know that some scents can actually improve your health?

Let's talk anxiety & stress. Nobody likes to admit they have anxiety but we all will say when we are stressed. In reality they're closely connected. We become stressed when we are late, when we have a test or interview, relationship issues, or have any little thing that is bothering us. Stress can lead to insomnia, decreased work productivity, broken relationships and, even worse- anxiety, chronic headaches, hypertension, heart disease, obesity & even diabetes. (mayoclinic.or...g) Those working in our industry especially suffer from many stressors day in and day out. Learning how to handle them leads to a focused, happier you and those around you. I use Stress Away straight outta the roller bottle when I'm feeling like I want to tear my hair out and it works in minutes. Other friends have successfully tried Valor before leading a meeting, Lavender or Peace & Calming or Frankincense or Valor during an anxiety attack, or Stress Away with any of the above on the wrists during times of stress. Don't get angry- get happy! Don't let the small stuff get you down- because then it'll turn into BIG stuff...& that's much harder to manage. ✌️💞

Today is my testimonial about Purification essential oil. It came in my Starter Kit and at 1st I didn't use it at all. Now I've used it 3x in the last few days with success. 1) I applied a drop to a tick embedded in my cat, and it backed right out! 2) I diffused it along with Citrus Fresh EO in my stinky rig at work. 3) I applied a drop to a laundry load that sat wet in the washer the entire time I was gone to Utah (4 days!) & no more mildewy smell.
U can also use it for natural bug spray and apply neat to stop itch on bug bites or apply to a blemish to dissolve sebum or to heal painful canker sores. Very handy to have around.

Testimonial time for the Allergy Trio. After pulling weeds the other day, I needed my essential oils badly!
These pics were 40 minutes apart. No Allegra, No eye drops.
And...no makeup on- probably the last time u will see that 😬

When Oprah is using Thieves Essential Oil you know it has to be good! I may not be Oprah, but it's one of my favorites too! Perfect for a sore throat, cold symptoms or controlling all those cooties the kids bring home.
