Several Christmases ago a friend gave me a “dry skin brushing” kit, complete with a long-handled natural bristle brush, instructions for use downloaded from the web, and a long list of benefits. While I am often an early adopter of such things, I wasn’t sure about adding another “step” to my morning routine...
Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: In this lovely article, Author Conni Kunzler recommends the benefits of dry massage therapy called as garshana. She conveys that rather than a dry brush, raw silk gloves are used which are said to have properties that energetically charge the lymphatic system and increase prana, the vital energy or life force. Garshana is typically followed by abhyanga as the exfoliated skin is prepped to drink in the warm, natural oils. Abhyanga is simply a self-massage for the entire body.
Editor's Note: Dr. Hyla Cass discusses why it is so important to take our daily dose of fish oil.

Many people think that cooking oils like corn, soy, safflower, sunflower and canola are good for their health just because they’re made from vegetables or plants. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: The power of Cynthia Rose Young's paintings will invigorate your soul. Using sacred geometry and the illumination of light, these paintings will speak volumes to your soul. In its artistic aesthetics, her spacial depth of a deeper understanding that goes beyond the veil, heightens the subtleties of her midtone range in her paintings, which contrasts strikingly with the white light. Etheric and volumetric, her work shines as a beacon of the Divine in all its symbolism and gestures of her nuances in communing with The Spiritus- the breath of spirit.

I am often asked whether there are any essential oils that can help one to stop smoking. The truth of the matter is that a number of people have found using aromatherapy and essential oils to be very helpful when they want to quit smoking.

We’re often told that agriculture is a “victim” of climate change and needs to adapt. But farmers, ranchers, and researchers increasingly recognize that industrial agriculture is itself a major emitter of greenhouse gases. A promising path for both feeding the world and potentially reversing climate change is “regenerative agriculture,” an approach that captures and stores atmospheric carbon in the soil.
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Regenerative agriculture is an way to gather and keep atmostpheric carbon in the soil - a method that could help in turning around the negative path of climate change.
