Theta Healing

ThetaHealing® lifts barriers you may not even realize are there, helping you address root issues by gently leading you through a process of replacing bad habits with healthy ones. During a session I will remove your limiting beliefs using focused meditation. ThetaHealing® can complement and even speed other therapeutic efforts by focusing on the underlying core issues that profoundly affect all aspects of your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well being.

DIY Facial Moisturizer Recipe for Fall

I invite you to “Fall” in love with this secret, natural facial formula that I’ve gathered from my favorite herbalist Rosemary Gladstar, with my own personal twist. It’s wonderfully moisturizing for the changing weather & best of all, you know exactly what you are putting on your skin! Ingredients: 2/3 cups distilled or Rose Water 1/3 cup Aloe Vera gel A few drops of essential oil–pick your favorite scent (I like to use lavender) 1/3 cup coconut oil (1) 3/4 cup apricot oil* (1) 3/4 oz beeswax, finely grated (1) 1 teaspoon grapefruit seed extract (1) * could also use jojoba or almond oil for slightly thicker lotion I know it’s along list, once you gather everything it’s easy! Heat all (1) ingredients slowly on a double broiler at low temperature, until just melted Pour heated oil into your blender or food processor & let cool until room temperature Turn blender on, slowly add water/aloe/essential oil (about 15 drops) to mixture over time as blending. Mix until it is white and fluffy (the water and oil combine, or ” emulsification” takes place which means you’re all done!) Slather on face day or night for a fabulous, moisturizing effect! Store in a cool place, enjoy!...
