The Power Of One Lone Voice

The Power Of One Lone Voice, Make A Difference, Speak Your Truth

“I don’t feel like I’ve done anything extraordinary but take my little light and shine it in darkness.” ~ Leymah Gbowee

Do you ever feel like you’re swimming upstream about a particular belief? That you’re alone in your passion? Some days, I feel that way. And yet, I believe in

the power of one LONE VOICE

You see, I’m MAD and I choose to channel that anger into something positive for the world.

I’m mad because we’re being bamboozled by drug companies into thinking they have magic pills that make us all better in an instant. I’m really mad that the doctors I trusted didn’t pay attention to me when I was sick. 

Since they didn’t pay attention, they didn’t know what was wrong with me. Actually they did know, but they ignored me and my health concerns. 

I spent years – YEARS – and went through several different doctors searching for answers only to be told “it’s all in your head – you’re fine!”  

But I wasn’t.

When I took matters into my own hands and began researching and paying attention to my body, I found answers. On my own. 

The Power Of One LONE VOICE

Our healthcare (it’s actually sickcare) system is completely broken down and held hostage by the medical mafia. The drug companies and insurance companies have a stranglehold on Americans and our government. They know if we’re healthy then they aren’t making money.

I believe in the power of one lone voice. Instead of blindly believing the dangerous lies being foisted upon us, I choose to let my tiny candle light up the dark. We do have healthcare choices and I choose to use my lone voice to educate anyone willing to listen about the benefits of holistic options.

Yes, that includes aromatherapy. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of rotten information out there that gives my profession a bad name. There are people who swear that a simple essential oil will fix, cure and heal (oh, and join the company so everyone can make money!).

It won’t.

It doesn’t.

But neither do the toxic pills.

When you take those toxic pills, you have to heal twice. Once from the dis-ease and once from the toxic pills themselves. With holistic options, you have a much better chance of healing without doing more damage.


As an aromatherapist, I have amazing tools that helps your body do what it does best: find balance. Whether it’s chronic pain, eczema, menopause, digestive issues or any number of other issues, there’s a natural solution that makes a difference in your health.

I choose to use my lone voice to offer honest information that gives you choices and options. There are very few negative side effects to using pure essential oils to balance your body, mind and spirit. Key To Your Health, Alternative healthcare, aromatherapy, the power of one lone voice

I’m not a doctor, that’s for sure. And I’m truly not bashing medical professionals! They’re doing the best they can in a completely broken system. (My primary care physician is +

an integrative practitioner who listens to me with an open mind to all options – including aromatherapy.)

But I’m wise enough to know that there are alternative methods of healthcare from amazing holistic practitioners that help you help your body. Simply assuming a pill you see advertised on TV will fix everything and let you go on your merry way is dangerous and irresponsible.

Shine Your Light Brightly

I am only one but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something.

So tell me – what is your passion in life? What is your belief? It doesn’t matter what it is – the power of one lone voice is all that matters.

I want you to know from the deepest part of my heart about the tools I have that help you live your healthiest life and why they’re so good for you. Maybe I am a lone voice, but I have a passion and I won’t stop sharing my knowledge with you ever.

How can I help you today? Send an email to me, call me or fill out this quick contact form – today.



P.S. – Thank you for reading about my passion and listening to my story. Please help me share my passion by sharing this post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Signs from the Universe – Don’t Give Up

Signs From The Universe Don't Give Up, believe in yourself, strange energy, feel scattered, EMF, electromagnetic field,


Do you feel like there’s some really strange energy floating around? Have you felt “off” lately? It’s been a strange few weeks for me, so if you’re feeling anything like this, you’re not alone! Just when I feel like I’ve had enough, I get signs from the universe – don’t give up.

What’s Going On?

I wish I knew.

There’s been times in the last few weeks where I walk into a business or store and the energy coming at me is overwhelming.

I’m one of those people who can sense “vibrations”. About 80% of the time, I can be in a room full of people I don’t know and I can tell you who’s pissed off, who’s depressed, who’s happy, who’s fighting a panic attack – any number of things.

Sheesh…that’s a lot of information.

So when I feel like something’s off kilter, it really affects me. And something has affected me to the point of overwhelm. Okay, so I’m a grownup and not supposed to feel like this anymore! 

But I have over the last few weeks – have you?

Strange Energy In The Air

I’m ’bout as curious as they come and this can’t just be me feeling this, right? So, I typed in “strange energy in the air” and came up with an interesting article.

Maybe I’m not losing my mind, maybe it’s electromagnetic energy in the air. You know, we’re all joined at the hip with our electronics. Whether it’s our cell phones, computers, tablets or televisions, we use them 24/7.

I heard on the radio today that 78% of adults would give up sex before giving up wifi. That’s a sad commentary on our species – don’t you think?

Ah, but I digress. 

A website called Active Post explains how electromagnetic fields (EMF) interact with our bodies. This is my first encounter with this site, so I don’t know much about them except their tagline says “Alternative News. Independent Views.” Hmmm… Electromagnetic Fields, emf, strange energy, feel scattered, signs from the universe don't give up

Anyway, one paragraph stuck out to me about EMF (EMF is very real) and how it affects us:

Most people don’t realize that their cellphones are miniature microwave heaters. Whether carried in the pocket, in the bra, or in your hand near your face and head, you are irradiating yourself with signals that penetrate your body and brain, and the frequency is in the same microwave range as the kitchen appliance that heats your soup. 

Well hell. We’re all frying ourselves to death, and this is also about the time of the year when sun spots spike which causes an uproar in the atmosphere.

Hmmm…I’m not quite sure what the strange energy is that I’m experiencing, but EMF may have something to do with it.

Signs From The Universe – Don’t Give Up

I hope you don’t mind a little TMI. I’ve had my share of struggles throughout the years and I know you have, too. Who knows? Maybe it’s as simple as strange energy.

Life has thrown some unexpected curveballs lately and if you’ve received a few of them yourself, then allow me to share some signs from the universe that I’ve received.

I’ve noticed a lot of signs lately that are just now beginning to make sense. I received three emails this morning with interesting subject lines:

    1. Believe In Yourself Without Self Doubt
    2. You Are Of High Value
    3. 21 Words To Make Us Feel Safe And Seen

I used one of my Conscious Ink Temporary Tattoos over the weekend and guess which one it was? You guessed it. Don’t give up.

How’s that for a message from the universe, eh?

If you’re sensing some strange energy out there and it’s making you feel scattered and nuts, never fear. I have a wonderful grounding blend for you that I created for myself when I feel scattered, restless and overwhelmed.

Mix all ingredients together and shake well before each use. Generously apply to throat, back of neck, chest and arms whenever needed. If you don’t have all of these oils, I make this for $21.95 plus shipping (and tax).

All you have to do is send an email to me ( balance ( at ) scentedbalance dot com) and I’ll take it from there.  If it’s easier, simply fill out the contact form and it’ll come right to my email box. Either way, let’s talk today – okay?

Thank you for letting me speak from the heart today – we all have our moments and as always, it’ll work itself out. In the meantime…

Savoring Life

Savoring Life, relax de-stress      Used With Permission

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. Earl Nightingale

I’m really not very good at savoring life. I tend to hurry because there’s a big ol’ heap on my plate. Now, I wished for this big ol’ heap and I’m really grateful for it, but at the same time, I forget to have fun.

How do you forget to have fun?

Easy. You forget about savoring life.

Practice Savoring Life

I’m working ahead of Labor Day weekend to publish this post so that I can go play on Monday. For my friends across the pond, Monday is the Labor Day holiday in the US and honors the working class – those of us who most likely live paycheck to paycheck with little reward. So it’s time for a little monkey business. :)

And yes, I tend to hurry through life because there’s always something that needs to be done.

But not today. 

What do you do just for fun? What’s your favorite way to relax and savor life? Savoring Life, present moment

I love digging in the dirt. Just being outside on a beautiful day is good for my soul. I dream of the ocean – don’t get to go very often, but I love it there. I love to play golf but I haven’t played in a long while.

Most of the time, it’s because I’ve piled a big ol’ heap on my plate.

Hey wait a minute! I’m a certified aromatherapist – isn’t there a blend for that?

Yep. Sure is.

Savor The Moment Diffuser Blend

  • 2 drops Neroli Petitgrain Co-Distill
  • 2 drops Frankincense
  • 2 drops Sweet Orange (substitute Lemon if you like)
  • 1 drop Ylang Ylang

Add these drops to your cold mist diffuser and let it run! This blend is wonderful for lifting your spirits, calming your thoughts and grounding you. And that allows you to be in the present moment and savor life. If you don’t have these oils on hand, I’ll make 5 mL bottle for you for $19.99 plus shipping. Go to Custom Blends in the aromatherapy shop and let me know you want Savor The Moment – I’ll take it from there!

Have A Little Fun In Life

This afternoon, I’m outside with my laptop writing and guess what? A hummingbird flew right by me (3 times!). Interesting, eh?

There’s a message in that and I had to figure out what it is. The good folks at blew my mind by explaining the symbolism of hummingbirds:

The hummingbird generally symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability. Additional symbolic meanings are: Lightness of being, enjoyment of life. Being more present. Independence. Bringing playfulness and joy in your life. Lifting up negativity. Swiftness, ability to respond quickly.

Now, ain’t that just something??

One of the (many) reasons I’ve been busy is adding lots of new products to my aromatherapy shop in Kernersville, North Carolina.

Debuting this coming week is a salt bath bar – you pick the essential oil you want and add a big scoop of bath salts. There’s also temporary tattoos, locally made soy candles and soaps and many other items for you and for gift giving.

I love having wonderful products to make your life worth savoring. So, even though it’s been a busy time, it’s worth it.

In the meantime, I’m purposely taking time to relax and play for a day!

I hope you’ve had some fun over Labor Day weekend and I hope you had time for savoring life.

Tell me how I can serve you better through aromatherapy – how can I help you relax, de-stress and be in the moment? Tell me how I can help you savor life.

Let me hear from you – the contact form is simple and fast or you can always email me. I can’t wait to hear from you!
