Overcoming Negativity

Are you a glass half empty or a glass half full person? Do you feel that life happens to you (stuck under the circumstances) or that you create life results by your actions (going forward: over, under, around, or through)? Do you see obstacles or opportunities? In this post, I want to share a few… Continue reading Overcoming Negativity

Lavender

Lavender angustifolia is doTERRA’s top selling oil in terms of sheer number of bottles. It is probably also the DIY plant “solution” that is best known and most used among the general public.

Rest and Managing Stress – Level 3 of the Wellness Triangle

Anyone who has read even one article on general health and wellness requirements probably knows that 7-9 hours of sleep per night is recommended for adults. But that is far from the entire story.
