Staying Healthy While Traveling

Being and staying healthy can be difficult, especially while traveling! But when we travel, we can enjoy ourselves so much more when we can stay healthy! It takes some extra effort (and a little extra in the budget), but it’s totally worth it! Last year, I found out that Young Living is giving my husband and I a paid Young Living chartered Caribbean cruise that we are so excited to go on this month, so I am doing what I […]

How Do Essential Oils Affect the Gut Microbiome? Let’s See What the Research Says

Those of us who learn the importance of gut health and how our gut health affects all areas of our health place a high priority on preserving our gut health! That’s when when I first looked into essential oils, I wanted to know, with proven research, how they affect our gut microbiome. And not just our gut microbiome because our entire body has more bacteria than cells. Even using things topically can alter our body’s microflora.  So I spent hours and hours digging […]

25 Days of Oils in the Bible

In December 2016, I had a 25 Days of Oils in the Bible on my Using the Scents God Gave You Facebook page. It was lots of fun and many people enjoyed the information, so I’m combining the posts here in one blog post for easy viewing! (*NOTE: These photos are copyrighted. Please do not download, edit, or use for personal or business use.) Day 1 Sometimes it is said that essential oils and aromatherapy are a “hippy thing” or […]

Float Therapy: What It Is & How It Can Improve Your Mental, Physical, & Spiritual Health

I am extremely excited to share a new method of therapy with all my HFFG fans and my experience with this therapy! The benefits to our physical, mental, and spiritual health are immense and cannot be covered in a single blog post, but I’ll summarize them the best I can! Float therapy, aka Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique or R.E.S.T. for short, was formally developed in 1954 at the National Institute of Mental Health in Washington. Float therapy offers a myriad […]

5 Tell-Tale Signs That An Essential Oil Is Not Pure

The essential oil industry is highly unregulated. You can buy a bottle of essential oil anywhere nowadays and they almost all say “pure” and “natural.” Yet there are more essential oils sold than there are plants produced to make that amount of essential oils, so something is very wrong here. Why would anyone advertise essential oils as being of mediocre quality or less than the very best? Quite naturally, vendors offer ‘only the best’ and, as a result, such claims have […]

Are Essential Oils New Age? Witchcraft?

There is a lot of confusion and disagreement among Christians regarding essential oils. Are they New Age? Witchcraft? What about the physical and especially the mental health claims about them?! So how do we reconcile this? What is the truth? Well, we look to God’s Word for the answer, of course! The Truth Is… More than any other therapeutic substance mentioned in Scripture, aromatic plants appear over 1,000 times throughout the Bible. Seventy percent (70%!!) of the books of the […]

Have A Passion For Natural Health? Want To Work From Home?

Do you have a passion for natural health, want to work from home, and receive FREE online education?!! I spent thousands of dollars on my training as a Certified Nutrition Counselor and Naturopathic Doctor, and while I don’t regret it, I do wonder sometimes if it was necessary. For one thing, a lot of what I learned to help people the most was completely separate studying from the studying in those programs. The knowledge I use the most to help […]

How To Support Liver Health Powerfully & Naturally

The liver is one of the most important, yet one of the most undervalued, organs in our body. It has over 500 vital functions that it is responsible for. As just a few examples, the liver is responsible for: Regulating blood clotting Clearing the blood of toxins Converting excess glucose into starch for storage Excreting waste via bile Converting hormones and vitamins into forms the body can use (sex hormones, Vitamin D, Vitamin A from carotenoids, etc.)  Producing glutathione, the […]

Essential Oil Quality–The Problem With Relying Solely on GC/MS

In essential oil groups, there is a lot of emphasis placed on purity, as there should be. Unfortunately, too much of that same emphasis is centered around GC/MS tests. GC/MS is gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, one of many tests used to analyze an essential oil. While many essential oil users look to it as the surefire way to tell if an essential oil is good, it has many shortcomings. And relying upon this kind of testing can cause a lot of problems.  Contrary […]

A Simple Cure for Polyhydramnios?

I have a dear friend who is a research hound like me. She uses prayer combined with research to seek God’s wisdom for naturally treating health issues that her and her friends are facing, and God has been incredibly faithful to give her the information she seeks. In one situation, she had a friend who needed help for polyhydramnios, a condition during pregnancy where there is an excess of amniotic fluid in the amniotic sac.  She found some recent research done on pregnant women […]
