Handling Emotional Hurricanes

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist

Here on the Gulf Coast, we’re heading for the high point of hurricane season. Weather watchers consider the period just before and after the beginning of September as the most likely for active storms.

Sea Soul Cleanse

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist

Oh sweet summer, how I love thee. This is the season of seasons that supports our sense of restoration. Warmer weather, vacation down time, longer days, and abundant sunlight help nourish our selves and slow our roll.

One of the many opportunities to really put our sensibilities to rights is to experience immersion in nature under the nurturing summer sun. For some, a walk in woods puts one back on the path of what is right in the world. Others appreciate the cooler, crisp air of the mountains. For city and suburban folks, reconnecting with the earth can be simply going barefoot in the grass.

When Life Gives You Elevens: Self Care with Essential Oils

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist

Almost exactly two years ago, this happened:

I got in the car, turned it on and this was the odometer exactly. I could have missed it, or I could have been driving. But, that wasn’t the case. I believe the image was there to get my attention.

Up until this point, I had been seeking answers about certain life situations, but I had been spinning a bit.

The opportunity of witnessing the odometer turn to a perfect 100,000 hit me like a ton of bricks. My immediate thought was “what am I supposed to know from this?” You see, I don’t believe in coincidences. I do believe in messages. More on that in a moment.
