Erica's Blog

Deep in the winter months it can be easy to feel sluggish, tired and run down. My own family was walloped with the flu this January, and between heavy work schedules, traveling for my son’s hockey games and “life on the road”, we all feel exhausted and depleted. Thats why I love a good diffuser blend to boost my mood and my immune system. I use my citrus oils to scent my space with fruity sweetness, while supporting a strong immune system. I have been loading up on herbs as well, with elderberry syrup and echinacea tea offering additional support. But sometimes, it comes down to taking a pause and having some rest. It is hard to slow down, but it is necessary, so that we can move into spring refreshed and energized. I have so many esciting events and new courses coming up and I need to be ready! This month I have included an immune support aromatherapy blend, as well as a romantic Valentines blend. Each can be used in a diffuser or safely diluted in a carrier for topical application. I wish you all a happy and healthy mid-winter!  -Erica

Happy blending! Erica

January is quickly becoming my favorite month of the year! I love the quiet calm that follows a busy holiday season, and I am a huge fan of resolutions, setting goals and enjoying a clean slate! The New Year offers so many possibilities and 2024 is already lining up to be my busiest yet! I will be offering several in-person massage trainings, partaking in a booth at this year’s AMTA-NY conference in Albany, NY, and am honored to be a guest speaker at the Alliance for International Aromatherapists in Nashville, TN in September!

That said, my need for self care will be stronger than ever. It will be imperative that I nourish my body, rest my mind and pamper myself with massage and holistic aromatherapy.

My wish for your 2024 is that you are the best version of yourself, and that you make caring for your wellbeing a priority. You deserve nothing less. Happy New Year!


r is a beautiful and restful month that tends to get swallowed up by the pre-holiday hustle. The leaves are turing dark brown and falling, the weather more brisk and the days shorter. I love the "turning in" of November as the year winds down. And of course, my most favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. Wrapping myself in the warmth and joy of my friends and family sets the tone for the end of the year. It is also a time to reflect on my goals and accomplishments for the year. I write in my journal and start my vision board for 2024. It is a way for me to check in with myself.

I hope the end of year brings you love, light and solace. Self care in November is imperative to avoid the holiday bustle burnout. Treat yourself to massage or a spa treatment. Take a weekend trip with a loved one. Read a good book with a cup of tea. Diffuse a gratitude aroma blend. Whatever you need to do to thank yourself for a wonderful year and set yourself up for the next. You deserve it.

I am thankful for you!
