Feeling Anxious during COVID?

Aromatherapy and essential oils is said to have originated from Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians typically cultivated plants for their oils; mainly to be used in conjunction with their religion, cosmetics and medicinally. Today, essential oils are again making a big splash in our everyday routines. Thanks to my new essential oil find "A touch of Comfort & Calm" a holistic essential remedy blend by Sabrina Hall, I'm able to ease my anxiety naturally.

For the past 3 years, I've been mindful in switching out some of the products I was regularly using that contained toxic properties for a more organic option and body lotion has been one of those switches. Finding the right essential oils blend as well as preferred scent is a personal preference but I want to share a Canadian brand option that has served me well.

Plant based therapies are growing in popularity; and for great reason! They are gentle and therapeutic, yet extremely effective in small amounts; with no side effects. All HERbS Pure Synergy Blends have been professionally formulated by Sabrina Hall (CAHP) for maximum efficacy and safety and that is why I trust this company.

For me, I have been using organic virgin coconut oil as a carrier oil with drops of the citrus sunshine pure essential oil to help refresh and energize my mind and soul. This amazing blend has a combination of tangerine, mandarin, sweet orange, grapefruit, neroli, and bergamot. Sometimes I add a few drops to a clean tissue and place the tissue inside my pillowcase for an entire night of aroma delight. You can also add a drop at the bottom of your shower stall while running a shower and allow the steam to help you relax when starting your day.

While talking to Sabrina, she also informed me that I could easily place a few drops into a diffuser to refresh the air for 20-30 minutes. I have a beautiful necklace with an absorbent heart pendent that I like to use as well.

There are so many wonderful varieties and blends to choose from, it's hard to pick a favourite.

Nice to Meet You

I'm Sabrina, my venture into becoming a Certified Aromatherapy Health Professional (CAHP) started sooner in my life than I appreciated myself. My realization that I should follow a new path dawned on me when my children were 7 and 10 years old, and my husband and I decided to take our family on a year-long camping adventure around North America. We were both granted a leave of absence from our employers, and in July 2017 we hooked our trailer up to our truck, loaded the kids and dogs in the back and embarked on a journey that would change us all profoundly. We concentrated on visiting National Parks, Provincial Parks, State Parks and any other wild place we could get to in Canada and the USA. We avoided large cities with all the associated hustle and bustle, and took our time exploring all the natural wonders of this corner of our amazing planet. We lived a slow life, in nature, and spent all our waking hours together. It felt natural and absolutely… wonderful. During the year away, I asked myself what truly makes me happy. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t unhappy before in my relationships, my life or my job. I feel extraordinarily privileged in our current society to have only suffered slightly with anxiety and the effects of extreme stress. But I’ve watched others around me suffer for years, people I love and am close to, people I want to help find alternative coping strategies to truly experience daily joy and optimal health. And so I turned to plants and the bountiful medicines they hold. In my first career, I worked for over 12 years in a botanical garden, and plants became my friends and allies. Essential oils are powerful plant compounds with therapeutic benefits that we can use to support our health and wellness. My desire is to support you along your path towards body, mind and spirit wellness.
