Therapy is actually deep, slow personal work. It’s a long, slow process of growth. And you can do the therapy for a while, take break and do life with this new perspective for a while and then come back to it again.

How Aromatherapy Helps With Relaxing And Sleeping

Aromatherapy is an age-old technique involving essentials oils that are beneficial to the mind and the body. The nervous system is the part of your body where the mind and body lie.

If you believe, like I do, in the mindbody connection, then you know there’s a body-based part to your emotional and physical health.

There are multiple ways to approach healing. One pathway is via talk therapy. It’s a cognitive way of working things out emotionally.

Your healing salve cooling in their jars!

One of my life long hobbies is studying healing plants in the form of herbals, essential oils and flower essences.   As a hobbyist, in 1985, I took my first herbal studies class from the  Australasian School of Herbal Studies. It has since evolved into a much larger entity. Now there are so many local courses to be taken with big names around the tri-state area, such as Robin Rose Bennet ,  Susan Weed and Peeka Trenkle. There just weren’t any local classes that I knew of in 1985.  In 1986, I studied homeopathy with Jane Cicchetti at the Five Elements Center in Mountain Lakes.
