The Proven Remedy that Fights 6 Kinds of Cancer

March 16, 2017

Myrrh resin essential oil has been found in research to have anti-cancer properties.

Myrrh—the resin from the small, thorny myrrh tree—has an ancient history of use as incense, in meditation rituals, as well in medicinal use for many ailments, from fighting infections to healing skin conditions.  Modern research is proving what the ancients seem to have known:  that myrrh is potent natural medicine.  And, we’re learning it has even more medicinal properties than originally believed, including potent anti-cancer properties.

4 Reasons to Love Lavender Essential Oil

February 16, 2017

Lavender essential oil is very soothing.

I visited an organic lavender farm a few summers ago. About a half a mile down the road I knew I was close as I could smell the fragrance wafting through the air.
