We Mix Like Oil & Water

Hmm after a few decades of life I can think of a few instances where that statement holds true. But we are going to focus on oil...something I know a little about.
Ever put oil in a container where water is present? Notice how the oil segregates itself in individual little balls? Shaking the liquids violently fuses them or makes the separation appear gone but they never really mix totally.
I bet you are asking, "how does using essential oils in bathing work?" I am glad you asked. Taking only a few drops of oil mixed with a dispersing agent, like milk, Epsom salt, and a fine grain  salt called dendritic as a few examples allows you to reap the benefits of essential oil fragrance baths.

Not Tonight Honey I Have A Headache....

There are times when our libido is not where we would like it to be for various reasons. There are many causes for decreased libido resulting in sexual dysfunction. Many people use the "little blue pill." Still others what a natural cure or remedy. Are you thinking, "what, essential oils can help this?!"
Physical and emotional factors cause a drop in sex drive. Specifically, stress, depression, obesity, and imbalance in male and female hormones. Aromatherapy, and topical application is the common method for using essential oils to combat under-active libido balancing anxiety, emotional well being as major factors in decreasing sex drive.

Best Chances For Sleep?

We all have times when we experience difficulty sleeping. I am not a pill person so essential oils are a great solution for this problem. There are 8 oils with the effect of relaxation. 
Lavender, Veviter, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile, Marjoram all have great qualities for relaxation. Topical or diffuse them for the same effect. 
Sleep is important for maintaining balance in the body. Too little sleep will cause a rise in blood pressure, weight gain, and mood instability.

Standing On Your Own

Sometimes standing on your own can make you feel so small in a very large world.
Decades ago I adopted a lifestyle designed to support and maintain wellness. Nutritionally, what I put into my body and what I placed on my body made me an outsider.
I formed Imani's Secret Garden to build a community of support for standing against the grain of processed "everything."
The earth provides naturally for our wellness.
Using essential oils as opposed to chemicals made to treat disease, or botanicals for skin moisturizing makes some stand out in their decision-making.

We Are Baaack

Hello beautiful people it has been a moment since we last were together. As in nature life changes like seasons. Time passes so effortlessly leaving us with a sense of wanting...more. Lives begin and renew, and others transition to a peaceful existence from our midst. Imani's Secret Garden remains with the bounty of the earth to replenish spirit, skin, hair, tantalizing our olfactory senses with fragrant spices, blooms and more!
The sun is brutal on our hair, but to the rescue is our favorite tropic remedy, coconut oil.

Are Body Oil Fragrance Types Fake Perfume?

Fewer beauty products have received the stigma attached to essential, or fragrant body oils.Those new to this product know little about the value, origin or potential health and economic benefit they bring. After thirty some years of enjoying these benefits I would like to share a few with you today hopefully dissuading your negative image of this wonderful product. Some of the myths are:
You can tell a fake oil because all real oils are thick, true or false?
False.Thickness or thinness has absolutely nothing to do with oil quality or scent intensity.

Getting It All...

Well friends it is that time giving season. No matter what your holiday observance, this time of year can be fun and stressfull at the same time. How do I shorten my gift list and not offend? How do I show my affection and not break the bank? What will I eat after the holiday season? Video games and clothing are not very appetizing even with condiments! The sting of those post holiday shopping credit card payments can bring you down!
I have learned over a period of years that you

It's That Time Again

Well, here we are again, entering the gift giving season. The strategy is to save, budget, avoid gridlock at malls, and be safe. Getting the items of value for your loved ones is the main goal.
Value equals the happiness the benefit of receiving an expression of your kindness brings. Personally selecting items with loved one's preferences in mind can be a daunting task while following strategic actions.

Glad To See You Again

When I began Imani's Secret Garden over three decades ago my goal was to create an experience that people would get used to and want again. I did then as I do now, keeping my product and information easily accessible to those interested in living a healthier existence. Maintaining a fair price with exceptional quality is key to seeing my customers again.
I was one of the first vendors to create a brochure, with information on nutrition, and health benefits of essential oils, and natural products.
