The Wellness Council comprises a group of experts in a variety of fields, ranging from doctors, to professional athletes, personal trainers, as well as massage therapy and aromatherapy professionals, who are committed to educating the public about the importance and benefits of regular massage therapy, proper posture, and overall, achieving a balanced health and wellness lifestyle. Julie began her practice as a bodyworker in 1983 after completing her studies at the Massage School of Santa Monica. She spent many years of her healing practice serving the film and music industries and traveling on tours with artists such as Madonna, George Michael and others, as well as providing her much needed bodywork treatments on the sets and studios of movies, TV shows, music videos, TV commercials and music recording sessions. She loves using her Human Touch® HT-7450 massage chair to complement her wellness lifestyle and understands the importance of caring for oneself and using therapeutic oils and massage to relax.

I know most of us are accustomed to using essential oils mostly topically. Most of the time, I use oils before sitting in my Human Touch® massage chair. They work wonderfully to sooth my skin and help me to unwind before enjoying the ultimate benefits of the massage. When sitting in my Human Touch® massage chair, I will also diffuse oils and breathe them in, while I feel the gentle kneading from my chair take care of the any stress I feel.

Did you also know that oils could be used in food preparation? I just made a wonderful Frittata with eggs, potatoes, pesto, cheese and I put 3 drops of Dill oil to my egg batter and it tasted absolutely delicious! Oils like Marjoram, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Basil, Oregano, Thyme & Clove take food to another level!

I also always put Young Living Lemon or Citrus Fresh oils in my water as oils help to purify the water and they taste so good. This helps me to drink more water. Also lemon oil helps the system to keep genuinely alkalined. In the summer when it gets very hot, I will add 1-2 drops of peppermint oil in my water and it will drop my body temperature by at least 10 degrees.

My other favorite way to use the Young Living oils is to put them into my bath water. This is a heavenly way to relax after a long day at work. Oils will not mix with water. You must get a handful of Epsom salts and then put your desired oils into the salts and empty this into the bath water. Then the oils will evenly disperse. I love using oils like Sacred Mountain, Lavender, Peace & Calming and Joy.

It is very important when using oils internally (like in food prep, or in your water) to use ONLY Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. Young Living oils are the finest, cleanest, purest oils I have ever known or used in my many years of utilizing oils in my healing work.

So check it out and enjoy the many ways you can use your oils.

Enjoy!

Spring is in the air. After the vernal equinox, which is marked by equal hours of daylight and darkness, the days become longer. It is a time of moving toward growth and coming out of hibernation; time to prepare our garden, literally and metaphorically. For us, the metaphor of spring “showers” symbolizes dreams, desires, goals, and intentions. We think about the power of planting seeds and designing our life landscapes. With the power of thinking, we plant seeds, grow our missions, and harvest the health, joy, abundance, vitality, and love that we are here to know and to show.

We believe the planet needs our positive thoughts and prayers, especially now. Planting thoughts of peace, energy, and well-being is our choice. It is important to do this with the same kind of faith that we would have if we were to plant the seeds of a particular flower, anticipating the blooms that we expect to see in the future.

Thinking well, and actively choosing a healthful diet, mindful and inspiring exercise, and rejuvenating rest and relaxation through massage, meditation, and proper sleep, is much like watering the seeds of awareness to positively grow our confidence. Keeping an active, compassionate, and steadfast watch over our thoughts and daily choices is essential for keeping unwanted and unhealthy patterns or other unnecessary “stuff” from growing in your life’s garden.

This spring we invite you to plant some new seeds; reinvent yourself. Look at areas of your life that no longer serve you and see where you can open up to serving others instead. John Travolta once said to Oprah Winfrey, “You feel alive from the degree to which you can help.” Aren’t you ready to feel more alive?!”

Wishing you a glorious beginning to springtime and an abundant garden of health, joy, abundance, and love.
