Happy Memorial Day ♥

Remember those that gave everything so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. †

The story of America’s quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots.  ~Randy Vader

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children. William Harvard

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President of the United States

 

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened. Billy Graham

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.  ~Benjamin Disraeli

Better than honor and glory, and History’s iron pen,
Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men.
~Richard Watson Gilder

my Grandfather ♥ Arthur J Pellegrene

 

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.  ~Joseph Campbell

We will never forget…

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!

Natural Mood Enhancers. ✿

An Italian Garden I love ♥

Sometimes we forget that natural essences and plants and herbs are not just beautiful to look at, they have wonderful healing properties as well!

Here are some of my favorite plants and flowers that are readily available along with some of their benefits. ♥

If you are suffering from mental fatigue add  a few drops of Peppermint to a handkerchief and inhale deeply! (Works great for headache relief too!)

To boost your energy level vaporize zesty citrus oils of Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon or Lime.  Avoid warm-smelling fragrances as they hamper activity.

Soft florals like Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Geranium are best to boost self esteem and increase security. (Jasmine & Gardenia white florals happen to be my favorites!  Fresh and Bright!) Grab some of our All Natural Jasmine Butter here.  (A perfect moisturizer for after a day in the sun!)

Some of my Star Jasmine growing all around Jack, my patio Pirate ♥

When your spirits are low try vaporizing some Rosemary & Eucalyptus…they will come to the rescue.

To help you be more alert try an essential oil blend of Jasmine, Basil, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang.

If you suffer from nervous exhaustion a combination of Lavender and Jasmine essential oils will help restore your natural balance.

If you are feeling sad or anxious try vaporizing some Patchouli or Geranium oil; they are reputed to be both grounding and stimulating.

Rose, Cypress and Lavender will boost feelings of contentment. ♥

What are your favorite blends? ✿

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!


I love the look of Kelp with the sun filtering through…beauty.  ❤
