Can I use
essential oils when pregnant?
Most essential oils are safe when pregnant but always consult with your health care professional during pregnancy or any condition where you are under a doctors care. A few oils should not be used in the early stages of pregnancy. These are abortificants or emmenogogues: Angelica, Cohosh, Feverfew, Ginger, Hyssop, Mugwort, Pennyroyal, Rosemary, Rue, Tansy. Some of these don't yield essential oil but I listed them for your information. Some of these are used safely at the end of pregnancy to stimulate contractions and assist normal labor.
Are essential oils safe for infants and children?
Yes. The most highly recommended for use with little ones are Lavender, Chamomile and Tangerine. I avoid the more aggressive oils such as Thyme on newborns. Remember they are much smaller and require much less. Their skin is more sensitive. If your child is very sensitive you might want to stick to the above suggestions and the products I've developed especially for baby, such as Baby oil or Alpha Care. Learn more about these under Product description, Synergistic blends.
The only oil I use undiluted on baby is Lavender. I apply a drop or two to my finger and rub it on a recently acquired bump before applying ice. If I act quickly there will be little or no bruising.
Can aromatherapy be used with homeopathy?
Since essential oils are a highly concentrated form of the plant and homeopathy is based on very minute amounts of the ingredients (plant or mineral), the two treatments are not recommended together. Homeopathic practitioners advise against it saying essential oils will nullify the affect of homeopathic remedies.
Do flower essences and essential oils work
In my experience they do. While flower essences are also dilute forms of the plant they work differently that homeopathy. Perhaps this is due to the idea in homeopathy of using a minute amount of the "poison" or what can cause the symptom to cure the symptom; whereas in aromatherapy and with flower essences we are using nature to restore balance.
Most flower essence practitioners recommend not using both products at the same time since one is based on dilution and the other very concentrated. Use your intuition. You may want to alternate methods rather than using them at the same time. I know of at least one massage therapist that is using both simultaneously with her clients.
Homeopathy works on the law of karma: For every action there is an equal but opposite and complimentary reaction and the solution for every problem is found within the problem itself.
It is my belief that flower essences and essential oils work on a different level, based on love where karma is no longer relevant to our lessons of growth.
Love is Light and in the center of that light I stand. Love recognizes the unity of all; that in that love, all is perfect and seeks to restore balance in perfect harmony with all the universal laws.
Are essential oils safe for Epileptics?
Since essential oils directly stimulate the brain through the olfactory nerve it is wise to use caution with any condition that involves seizures. Consult with your physician. Specific oils to avoid are Birch, Coriander, Fennel, Hyssop, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Sage, Tarragon. If I see the need through requests I will develop a blend to use with epilepsy.
How can I use undiluted pure essential oils?
Some Essential oils can be used by applying 1 or two drops directly on the feet or spine using reflexology point knowledge, They can also be applied directly to the painful area, such as lavender for burns. They can be added to bath water or diffused into the room. More information can be found on our Product description home page under Methods of applying essential oils.

Can astrology help me find my soul mate?
Astrology can help you clarify what you need from a mate and the qualities of your soul mate. It can't tell you where to find that perfect mate but can describe his or her nature and qualities along with the possible times new relationships may enter your life. Horary questions can give further insight into relationship with such questions as, "Is this a person I would like to spend the rest of my life with?" Composite charts can also be done to gain insight into the union.
Can astrology tell me accurately what events
might happen during a period of time?
With an accurate birth time, quite a few events can be predicted but if the birth time is off, even by a short time, the timing will be off and transits will not come to fruition at the expected time. There are times, too that a person's mind set may overlook, and therefore miss opportunities that are presented with transits. The energies may be there but the person may fail to act. Astrology can show the general energies present and possible manifestations. It must be also be kept in mind that various energies can manifest in multiple ways. A transit from Venus can accompany a change in income but could also bring an event involving a woman or relationship.
