A sweet February Quote .. the month of love ::
At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.
Here is an interesting article that I thought I would share:
Aromatherapy is a popular complementary therapy within oncology settings and is known to help relieve patients’ anxiety. A new method of delivering aromatherapy to patients was adopted by a complementary therapy service at a UK hospital; aromasticks are similar in design to the Vicks® Vapour Inhaler®, with the intention of helping patients manage anxiety, nausea and sleep disturbance. to read the rest of the article please follow the link ~ Aromasticks in cancer care: an innovation not to be sniffed at.
My thoughts also that you can create a ‘smelling salts’ adding your essential oil and / or blend to the salts and sniff them.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
In traditional sky lore, the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. In 2012, for us in the Northern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox comes on September 22. The full moon for us in the U.S. will come on the night of September 29. That makes the September 29-30 full moon the Harvest Moon.
Depending upon your time zone, the full moon will be September 29 or 30. But the moon will appear round and full on all the nights around this full moon.
“The season for enjoying the fullness of life –
partaking of the harvest,
sharing the harvest with others,
and reinvesting and saving portions of the harvest …
for yet another season of growth.”
~ Denis Waitley
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.
~ George Eliot

Snowflakes are kisses from heaven. ~Author Unknown
January is in full swing here in the Big Apple! The snow has been falling for days now.
And yes, I do love the quiet beauty of snow, everything is sparkling and magical to me.
The winter season brings with it many things: winter sniffles, dry skin, winter doldrums.
Beating the Winter Blues:
You know the feeling: You’re more tired these days, maybe anxious or moody. Cocooning with some leftover Christmas cookies or other sweet and high-carb fare sounds better than hanging with the crowd. Your sexual appetite may be on a diet, or even fasting. It’s harder to get out of bed, and when you do, your mood resembles the landscape you see — cold, dark, and nasty.
The lack of sunlight affects the brain and causes ‘Seasonal affective disorder’, the aptly acronymed SAD that is typically diagnosed after at least two consecutive years of more intense symptoms.
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? ~J.B. Priestley
Stay cozy and warm and if you have to venture out into the world, drive safe.
