New evidence indicates it might be helpful to reduce internal inflammation. It is already known to be beneficial for any kind of skin inflammation, such as eczema and psoriasis.

The oil is very potent; therefore, it must be diluted before using.

Support Cleansing With Essential Oils

Our first essential oil class focused on…

Support Thy Cleansing

We are exposed to 1000’s of chemicals every day. Our genes have not caught up to the changes in our environment such as pollution, insect repellents, paint, food additives and preservatives, detergents, fire retardants and the list goes on …

Cleansing Feeling bloated, fatigued, skin issues, poor immune system health, headaches, brain fog, excess weight, cellulite, cravings and allergies are all signs that the body needs help to detoxify. Detoxification should be on a daily basis – it should be a life style.

Avoiding toxins and detoxifying are necessary to be happy, healthy, and free of disease. Your liver is your main detoxification organ and is responsible for 500 functions. When the body is overwhelmed by excess toxins the liver will safeguard vital organs by insulating toxins in fat cells.

There are essential oils that help release toxins from fat cells, break them down, and flush them out of the body with good hydration. There are oils that are helpful in clearing the gut of harmful bacteria and restoring balance for healthy digestion and immunity.

Lemon essential oil – detoxifies fat, chemicals, urinary tract, liver, lymph, hangovers, pancreas
Grapefruit essential oil – detoxifies fat, liver, lymph, cellulite, gallbladder.
Lemongrass – bladder infections, kidney, and cellular cleanser.

Yours in good health,
Essential Oil Goddess~

Peppermint Improves Exercise Performance

The effects of peppermint on exercise performance

As appearing in Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition

Enhancing athletic performance is a great desire among the athletes, coaches and researchers. Mint is one of the most famous natural herbs used for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antioxidant, and vasoconstrictor effects

The results of the experiment support the effectiveness of peppermint essential oil on the exercise performance, gas analysis, spirometry parameters, blood pressure, and respiratory rate in the young male students. Relaxation of bronchial smooth muscles, increase in the ventilation and brain oxygen concentration, and decrease in the blood lactate level are the most plausible explanations.

This is the first study that explored the effect of oral supplementation with peppermint essential oil on the exercise performance. Our results strongly support the effectiveness of peppermint essential oil on the exercise performance, respiratory function variables, systolic blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory gas exchange parameters.

Fascial Stretch Therapy Coming

We are excited to announce that Julane will be exploring a new modality; Fascial Stretch Therapy TM. From January 9-15, 2017 in Julane will be studying physiology and techniques of Fascial Stretch Therapy through the Stretch to Win Institute in Tempe, Arizona.  For more information please visit; 

Julane’s Away Dates; January 1- 15, 2017

Fascial Stretch TherapyJulane chose this course for the multitude of ways it can help with every client and also as a modality that will help unify her education and abilities as both a massage therapist and as a clinical pilates instructor.

Fascia is a connective tissue that envelops almost everything in our bodies, including; muscles, joints and our organs. Although in its infancy of being studied and researched, the outcome of working with fascia has been astonishing and has had significant results with everything from chronic pain to sport performance. Fascia becomes restricted through many ways, most of which we all have in our daily basis. For example sitting in repetitive posture at work or from overtraining when we do get a chance to work out and get our bodies moving.

Because fascia is a continuous connective tissue wrapping from superficial to deep through our entire bodies, restrictions can cause and increase in muscle tone that may not respond to regular stretching techniques, increase risk of sprains and strains, joint pain from pull on the joint capsule as well as inhibiting efficient movement and pasture patterns.

During a session, you will go through an assessment and gets hands-on work to help accomplish your goals from a holistic, un-invasive approach.

Watch out for new classes in the Spring where we will be offering an introductory deal!
