I've had a long–standing love affair with essential oils, they wooed me with their powerful intensity long ago. From the calming  qualities of Lavender to the sultry aroma of Sandalwood to the sweet delicacy of Ylang Ylang, I was hooked from the get–go. 

I tend to fall hard and fast for anything (or anyone) that speaks straight to the heart.

Scents have a way of doing that, and like love, are timeless, or more accurately, they encapsulate time.

One whiff of hot wet pavement after a summer rainstorm and I am instantly...

We've all got superpowers. They just get buried under the weight of our adult burdens or clouded by the onslaught of environmental toxins, household chemicals, preservatives and additives in our food. The easiest way to tap into your superpowers is to clean up your diet and eliminate harsh chemicals in your households. 

Now, I'm not talking about being able to fly or slicing through concrete with laser vision, although I wouldn't discourage you from trying to develop those skills.

We may not all be mothers but we all come from mothers, and wouldn't exist if it weren't for the efforts of that woman carrying us in her womb and pushing us into the world.

We owe everything to our mothers.

Not too long ago, I was asked that question by a wise friend of mine, Cylla, whom I admire greatly, and I was stumped. I had never really contemplated that before. My teachers were everywhere; my children, my pets, my partner, my friends, my family, the guy who cut me off in his car, the store clerk, the plants, the seasons, the sun, the moon, they were all my teachers, all the time. 

But that wasn't what my friend was asking, she wanted to know names of specific people I had chosen as mentors, people that I had learned from in person. I co...
