You may have just recently heard of essential oils or maybe you have been interested in them for a while and didn’t know where to start. I know for me, I started reading about essential oils about 10 years ago… but I didn’t really know how to use them or even when I should be using them.
I was already pretty “crunchy” and avoided using chemicals in my house as much as possible, but there was another level of concern when you have a baby crawling around on the floors and putting everything in their mouths. That’s when I realized that I could actually start cleaning with essential oils.read more

Face mapping, which combines modern dermatology with ancient Chinese medicine, is the idea that there’s a correlation between your internal organs and different zones of your face.
This means that where your pimples are popping up could be an indication of something underlying going on inside you and give you some clues of how to treat your whole body.
Just recently, I noticed several pimples showing up above my brow, then I read it could be my immune system fighting against something. Then, the next day I started with seasonal allergies… my skin really was telling me something was going on!
It is so interesting!!
Face mapping can actually identify underlying causes of your acne. Once you’ve identified the cause, it’s easier to prevent it. While some causes are unavoidable (hormones during that time of the month, for instance), diet and lifestyle changes can definitely help to clear up your skin.
