This week our counselor and Licensed Clinical Social Worker Sarah Rasche joined us to talk about the concept of "self care".
Like mindfulness, diet, and exercise, self care has become yet another aspect of mental health that is the subject of paid classes, books, workshops, and special methods that all are aimed at making money off the fact that people are becoming more aware of their mental health.
But you don't need to pay to take care of yourself. Watch our video to learn about the many ways you can give yourself the care that you need without pulling out your wallet.
Using essential oils in conjunction with mindfulness practices, can be a powerful tool in supporting emotions, focus, memory retention, and anchoring in new patterns and beliefs.
Today we talked with Midwife and Health and Wellness Coach Angela Seeling, who uses different Essential Oils in her practice to elicit specific emotions and use the power of our sense of smell to access deep feelings and memories.
Angela will be hosting a workshop on Mindfulness, Emotions, and Essential Oils at our office on Friday, March 8th at 5:30pm. We'll talk about aroma as a direct pathway to to the lymbic system in the brain, and the science behind how essential oils work. Participants will make their own emotional aromatherapy blend to take home, and incorporate into daily practices. Sign up here!
