Your Family Traits and Epigenetics
Science is proving that we inherit more than physical traits like hair and eye color from our biological families. The study of epigenetics has found that trauma and stress responses are also inherited. In this episode, Elizabeth Gould, author of Your Best Health by Friday, explains how these unconscious reactions are passed from generation to generation. And why, when you are aware of this, you can improve your health and well-being. The suggested essential oil for this episode is lemon, or a citrus oil. Inhale a drop or two of lemon or other citrus essential oils to bring a feeling of sunshine into your heart. Citrus can provide an energy-brain boost and their aromas equate to happiness for many people. Citrus oils are great to add to natural cleaning solutions - they will help keep your living space smelling fresh and clean. Lemon and Citrus Fresh are two of the dozen essential oils & blends you'll receive (along with your choice of ultrasonic diffuser) when you order a Premium Starter Kit at AromaThrive.com

Rituals for Raising your Vibe
"Raising your Vibe" means being at your best - improving. Everything in the world is vibrating at a frequency - and, there are simple things you can do to raise your vibe. I love the term vibrations - and it always reminds me of a story I heard, Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys) recalled a time when he was young, walking with his mom and he asked her why neighborhood dogs barked at some people and not others. His mom told him something like it's because everyone gives off vibrations - and some of those vibes will make dogs bark. And, that's what inspired Wilson to write the hit tune Good Vibrations. So - in today's episode, I suggest ideas for making the vibrations you're giving off - high vibrations (or, as the song goes "Good Vibrations"). The suggested essential oil to enhance your listening experience is SAGE - as Sage is known for purifying air and cleansing. You can receive a F R E E bottle of Sage Vitality essential oil this summer - when you order a Premium Starter Kit of 12 essential oils + diffuder from me - at AromaThrive.com
