A clean house.  A glass of wine.  Candles lit.  It’s just about the best kind of evening for me. I love the way a dimly lit room coupled with a soft fragrance makes me feel.  Add in some music, and I’m a happy, happy girl.  But now we know that those paraffin candles are emitting chemicals (soot, anyone?) and other synthetic fragrances that many … Read More

One of the things I explain to people who have a curiosity about essential oils is that they aren’t the next new fad like personalized lockets, embroidered cloth handbags, and such.

I started my journey to essential oils about eight years ago.  I remember the day it all began.  I was home on a holiday and listening to the Oprah Winfrey Show as background noise while I folded laundry.  Oprah’s guest that day was a lady I had never heard of, Sophie Uliano, so I really didn’t pay much attention until Sophie … Read More

The Power of Intention

Nicole BrannickNew Year's Goals

Seagulls

My favorite book is The Noticer by New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews. I read this book during the first quarter of every year because it’s packed full of life lessons that help me keep my own life in perspective.
