Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.

When I was younger green bean casserole was ALWAYS my favorite side dish at Thanksgiving, but as I got older and began to become more health conscious I realized it wasn't the best dish in the world for me. Cutting out most dairy and wheat from my diet has been quite the adventure, but this dish makes it easier, it is rich and decadent without including those two inflammatory ingredients. The mixture of coconut oil, almond milk and nutritional yeast make it almost impossible to tell that this dish is dairy free..

Aromatherapy is as a fragrant substance in bases, such as oils, candles, soaps, and water based sprays. The aroma comes in many forms such as an aroma of cookies or bread baking, which triggers the smells of home on a wintry day and promotes calmness...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: Aromatherapy is a well-regarded therapy but some may not know it is also used with Reiki and Chiropractic treatments.

Vegetable oil is highly processed soybean oil (can be highly refined cottonseed, safflower, corn or grapeseed). They are processed under high heat, pressure, industrial solvents (such as hexane)...
Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Are you confused about which oils are healthy and which ones to steer clear from? I know I was for a long time. No need to be confused any longer as I have written an article that will help simply it all for you. Let me know which oils you use on a daily basis.

Food at the Table. Finally.
It was the largest climate march—and conversation—in history.
And this time, food was at the table...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Cook Organic Not the Planet: was the banner leading the march of 50,000 people representing food, farming, agriculture, and food justice groups. The message stated that industrial agriculture is one of the biggest makers of greenhouse gas emissions. The other end of the spectrum -organic farming is a solution to global warming, better health, soil and a planet that will be able to feed the world. Be sure to check out the cool photos and videos. What a great day it was.

"Even an oil which is quite truthfully described as pure may be of poor quality, and therefore of less value therapeutically. IF AN ESSENTIAL OIL COSTS MUCH LESS THAN YOU WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT TO PAY FOR IT, the oil may well be a third or fourth distillate from a batch of plant material which has already yielded the greater part of its properties to the first or second distillation..."

We may aspire to wear the glamorous creations sashaying down the runways of New York, Milan and Paris, but most of us only invest in some shoes, the ‘it’ bag, the underwear or perfume. Just a spray on our pulse points and we can all wear Armani for the day...
Editor's Note: I love how Justin really exposes these "chemical cocktails" for what they are and offers some great alternatives like making your own scent using essential oils which is something that I do personally.
