To enjoy, I mean really enjoy and get the most from your life, You need to have good health and a strong belief in yourself.

Rose or Lotus essential oils -
for the ever giving person.
Do you find yourself unraveling?
Many people spend lots of time and money eating a healthy diet, taking all the right supplements, and getting enough exercise – all in the name of becoming healthy.  But one thing that doesn’t get the energy that it deserves is stress management.
Stress is your body’s response to anything that disrupts your normal life and routines- meaning anything that throws you off balance.  When our bodies get off balance, disease occurs.

The effects of stress can be emotional, psychological, and physical.  Irritability, depression, anxiety, inability to concentrate, sleep issues, problems with memory, digestive issues, headaches, and sugar/caffeine cravings have all been linked to stress.  And living with chronic stress can lead to a whole host of chronic health issues that are making us sicker and sicker as a culture.
When used correctly, essential oils can offer dramatic benefits to our mental and physical health. They truly help to balance the body to heal instead of just placate symptoms.
Essential oils are the most powerful form of herbal medicine available. The ‘volatile oil’ (what we call an essential oil) contains the concentrated essence of a plant.
Your sense of smell is your most primal sense and exerts surprising influence over your thoughts, emotions, moods, memories, and behaviors. Scents are experienced long before words.
Rose or Lotus known in aromatherapy for their wonderful ability to flush away anger and negative presences. Because these oil possess such strong properties that expel harsh energies, it makes for a great oils to use, when trying to relax and meditate.
It also aids the mind in times of change, to sooth the soul, and aid the body in exertion.

Essential oils can be used both topically and through inhalation to manage stress.

  1. The easiest way to receive the benefits of essential oils is through diffusing them. It disperses the essential oils molecules into the air and allows you to inhale them.  The molecules of the essential oils are so small that they easily enter the olfactory nerves inside of your nose and into the limbic system, which is the seat of emotions in the body.  Diffuse oils 20-30 minutes to manage stress, 2 or 3 times a day.
  2. If you do not have a diffuser, you can place a drop or 2 of essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, cup them around your nose and inhale deeply.  Do this for several minutes.  I have found this an effective way to use many of my essential oils.
  3. You can also rub 1-2 drops of essential oils on the bottoms of your feet, shoulders,  back of your neck or stomach.  I often use a bit of carrier oil like coconut or jojoba to help it spread.
  4. Mix 3-6 drops of essential oil with Epsom salt or baking soda and add to a hot bath water while tub is filling. Soak in bath for 20-30 minutes. 
  5. Rub 1-2 drops on the temples and back of neck several times a day.  You can easily make a personal roller to take with you on the go by adding 2 tsp of carrier oil and 2-6 drops of your favorite stress oil to a glass perfume roller.  Apply in the car, at the office, or when your kids are driving you crazy.
  6. Place a warm compress with 1-2 drops of chosen oil on the back.

Urination, is actually a really important bodily function.
The production of urine serves a few vital purposes. Three of the most important being:
  • It helps to remove waste and otherwise toxic elements from your body;
  • it helps you to maintain a steady internal fluid content (vital for organ function)
  • and it plays a part in regulating your body temperature.

Really it is your kidneys that are doing the dirty work for you. Your kidneys are the organs responsible for filtering out metabolic waste and controlling your body’s fluid content.

To do this they flush the toxins and waste out in the form of urine. This urine is sent to your bladder to be stored until it gets full enough to make you feel like you need to urinate.

Aside from offering bladder relief, removing potentially toxic waste and regulating your bodily fluids and temperature, your urine is therefore the best indicator of your current health.

You don’t always need a doctors’ dip-stick to let your urine tell you what is going on inside your body.
Check the color of your urine mid-stream rather than after it has been diluted by the water in the toilet bowl. The best way to do this, especially for women who may struggle to see their urine mid-stream, is to catch some urine in a small, clean, clear container. This will then allow you to see its color easily.
You should check the color of your urine regularly, even if you are well, so that you can find out what “normal” looks like for you.

Pale yellow or gold urine 

Pale yellow or gold is the most common color for urine and indicates that you are probably well hydrated and have a healthy urinary tract. Taking Vitamin B supplements can color your urine brighter yellow, but it should become less bright within a few hours. Your urine may also become slightly darker if you drink less water and paler as you drink more water.

Orange urine

Orange urine could be indicative of your body being dehydrated. This can happen when you have been “holding it” for too long. It can also happen after you exercise because you are using up water to sweat and metabolize faster, which means more metabolic waste to process and less water to process it with. If your urine is orange you should drink water immediately to right your internal fluid content.

It can also be caused by eating or drinking orange (or red) foods and drinks. If either of these is the case it should become paler within a few hours and after a few glasses of water.

If your urine stays orange for a prolonged time it could be a sign of a more serious problem such as liver or pituitary problems.

If your urine stays orange for more than a few days in spite of drinking plenty of water you should consult your GP.

Amber or dark orange urine

This is much the same as orange urine but because it is darker, that means it is even more concentrated. More concentrated urine means that you are even more dehydrated. You should drink water and hydrate yourself immediately.

Concentrated urine could also be the result of consuming too much salt and caffeine.

In more serious causes, amber urine could mean problems like: anuria (decreased urine production), metabolic problems, hematuria, pituitary issues or ADH. These are all conditions which should be treated by a doctor, so if your urine stays dark orange for a few days (in spite of drinking enough water) you should consult your doctor immediately.

Brown urine

If your urine is brown it is very concentrated. You may be extremely dehydrated and you should drink water right away.

There are also a few medical conditions that can cause urine to turn brown. These include Urinary Tract Infections, Melanuria, kidney stones, blood clots and in some cases even cancer. Brown urine can also be as a result of Addison’s Disease, Glycosuria, Proteinuria, pituitary problems and Renal Artery Stenosis.

Sometimes certain foods like Fava beans can turn your urine brown so bear in mind what you have been eating too. If you have not been eating fava beans and the symptoms continue, then you should definitely consult your GP.

Colorless urine

Have you been drinking a lot of water? Because colorless urine means that you are probably over hydrated. Try to drink a little less and it should soon return to normal. You shouldn’t need medical attention unless the condition persists for longer than a few days.

Cloudy or sediment containing urine

If your urine is milky white or cloudy you probably have a urinary tract infection.

In some cases it could be a sign of kidney disorders, problems with your metabolic processes or even Chyluria which is a lymph node issue.

Cloudy white urine is a sign of Phosphaturia and pituitary gland issues.

The important thing to ask yourself is whether you are in any pain or if you have any other bladder discomforts and/or odd symptoms? If you are in pain, feeling sick (nauseous), urinate a lot more frequently than usual and have cloudy urine, then you should consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Even something as simple as a urinary tract infection can quickly make you very ill and uncomfortable. Untreated urinary tract infections can lead to bladder and kidney infections. The longer it remains untreated, the more internal damage and the longer the road to recovery.

Red or pink urine

This is usually caused by blood in your urine. If you have any reason to believe you have blood in your urine you should consult your GP immediately!

Blood in your urine is called hematuria and is most often caused by severe urinary tract infections, a heavy knock or blow to the kidney area or kidney stones.   Sometimes blood in your urine is caused by Cancer and tumors but before you panic, make sure that you haven’t just eaten foods or taken medication that can make your urine appear red. These would be some red food dyes, beetroot, blueberries and rhubarb.

Medicines that can turn your urine red include iron supplements, Pepto-Bismol and Maalox.

Just remember that any artificial food that has dyes strong enough to color your urine most probably aren’t good for you.

Black urine

This is very rare. If you do experience black urine you could have a genetic disorder of tyrosine metabolism and phenylalanine which causes an accumulation of homogentistic acid in the blood. Seek medical attention immediately!

Green or blue urine

This is also rare but when it is experienced its usually because of something that you have eaten. Certain foods, colorants and highly concentrated vitamins can cause discoloration of your urine to green or orange.

If you experience pain or discomfort at the same time as your urine being green or blue it could be due to an unusual urinary tract infection.   If the symptoms persist you should seek medical attention.

Foaming urine

If your urine is turbulent and foamy it could be a sign of diabetes or hypertension. You should consult your doctor if the condition lasts longer than a few days.

What the smell of your urine tells you

What your urine smells like is also an important indicator of your health. Normal urine doesn’t actually have a strong smell. When your urine has a strong odor it is usually because you are dehydrated. It can also be caused by high-protein foods.

Strong smelling urine

If you have strong smelling urine but you are not dehydrated and haven’t eaten anything high in protein you may have an infection somewhere in your urinary tract or may even have kidney stones. If you have any other symptoms you should consult your GP.

Urine that smells like Ammonia

An ammonia smell in your urine could be because of a sexually transmitted disease, hormonal imbalances or metabolic disorders. If the smell persists for longer than a day or two you should consult a doctor, especially if it is accompanied by burning, pain or any other symptoms.

Sweet fruity smelling urine

A sweet fruity smell in your urine is sometimes caused by uncontrolled diabetes. If you have any other symptoms you should consult a doctor.

Sulphurous smelling urine

Urine that smells like sulphur (eggy smell) can be caused by certain strong smelling foods such as asparagus. The interesting thing about “asparagus smelling urine” is that only about half of all people have the required gene to be able to smell it.

This is not usually a health risk and shouldn’t warrant medical attention unless it is coupled with other symptoms.

 Chakra's For Health and well being

The Root Chakra, known in Sanskrit as muladhara, is located at the base of the spine. It governs your most basic survival needs. When this chakra is clear and energy flows through it freely, we feel secure and confident that we can easily fulfill our needs. However, blockage in this area can cause us to feel anxious and worried.

Symptom of Blocked Chakra Emotion and some physical manifestations:

Fear - weight problems, hemorrhoids, degenerative arthritis, knee troubles, sciatica - Our actions would revolve around selfishly satisfying our personal needs, hoarding compulsively so we would never be without. We would feel threatened, angry and victimized, which ultimately would take a toll on our health leading to lethargy and depression, illness and disease.
Essential oils support the root chakra by aligning us with our connection to our physical bodies and to the earth’s body.  They also help the base chakra to spin correctly, creating energy and life force as a foundation for the rest of our chakras to utilize. You may experience enriched emotions, increased sensitivity, be more emphatic and better able to control your emotions.
To use:
Using Red Adrenal Base Root, put a few drops in hands rub together and breath deeply. This blend of oils help reverse a sense of isolation.

Chakra mantras help you to clear your energy pathways so you can thrive, not just survive; this allows you to make the most of your physical life experience, creating positive physical, emotional, mental and spiritual change.

Using chakra mantras during meditation can have a very powerful effect. Imagine a chakra as an instrument, and the mantra as a tuning fork – strike the tuning fork, and the instrument will come into vibrational resonance with it, clearing out any energies that do not share the same resonance.

·  OM The most well known and universal of the mantras it is the sound of creation and causes energy to gather and flow upward and outward. OM is the mantra of acceptance and assent. It helps you to accept your higher self and allow energy to flow openly and freely through you. It also serves as a gathering mantra, gathering your inward energy and preparing your energy for movement.

While inhaling Red Adrenal Base Root: chant LAM: The cleansing mantra chanted for your Root Chakra, which keeps us grounded and linked to the earth. Chanting this mantra will cleanse impurities that can collect in the root chakra – literally opening you up to feelings of security, prosperity and belonging – and clearing any blocked energy that is being prevented from moving through to the other six main energy centers. Chant “LAM” if your energy is low, you struggle financially, you suffer from low self-esteem and you suffer from adrenal fatigue and other stress-related ailments.

Healing of the Root Chakra:
Balancing and opening the root/base chakra allows negative emotions to be released, regenerating confidence and your will to move forward in life. A healthy root/base chakra promotes feelings of security and encourages exploration to find your life's purpose and achieve success.  A balanced root chakra also generates the flow of energy to all other chakras.
