All about Hormone balance. Of course, it's best to stay in balance at all times, especially with your endocrine system. When something goes wrong, the effects are often times confusing, and can even allow your senses and intellect to get buried. Happiness and grounding become quite impossible.

Moving past last week's subject of anger and its management with essential oils, this week is dedicated to soothing, aches and pains, tension and healing through essential oils. I'm going through an intensive yoga teacher training now so soothing is in order.

Of course, there are other methods for soothing ache and pains aside from essential oils. Epsom salt baths draw out the lactic acid buildup from sore muscles; epsom salts are magnesium.
