Dynamic Detox Program

Hello,
2016 has started off wonderful, with our new group of Dynamic Detoxers !! They have been on the DYNAMIC DETOX program now for over 10 days. They are having excellent results and really enjoying their the foods, juices and starting to really use the recipes that we offer them in the program. My daughter, Zoe helped with the recipes because she has always loved to cook and it was fun for her to develop the menus and help make these healthy and anti-inflammatory recipes. All of the Dynamic Detoxers have decided to continue on the 7 day  part of program. This is truly awesome. Below is photo of the organic fruits and vegetable juices that they drink each day to give them vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

As each Dynamic Detoxers goes through the detoxification process ; we discuss what are the solutions to their challenges and they are also journaling each day to help them go inward and rediscover their inner selves. I use essential oils in the Dynamic Detox program to help with emotional balance, mental clarity, inflammation and much more. Last night, we went Live again for the 3rd time with the “Essential Detoxing with Essential Oils Webinar.”  I am so happy to share about how essential oils aid the detoxification process.

Lavender, Lavender All day has been Lavender

Hello Everyone,

Today, has been such a hot, sunny yet calm day with the Lavender ( Lavandula officinalis) is being harvested. My friend, Joel who has been helping to take care of the plants on Domaine de Castillou, in the South of France where I live. Domaine de Castillou is an organic farm where lavender, rosemary, sage and 3 different kinds of thyme are grown.

The harvest started this morning : in the large fields the lavender was cut by machine however the smaller fields in the hills were cut by hand by my dear friend Joel. He showed me how to cut the lavender by hand. My daughter Zoe filmed us in the lavender field which you will see on this blog. Most people who are close to me understand that Lavender is a very special plant and essential oil to me. It is the essential oil that introduced to me how effective essential oils can be on the nervous system. Here is my Love Story about Lavender essential oil. My son, Burt had

Lavender on Domaine de Castillou

stuttered since the age of four. He often repeated words like, You see, you see, you see.” From the ages of four to six , I took him to a speech pathologist for this stuttering problem. The pathologist said, the school system would probably lose him between the cracks, because he most likely wouldn’t qualify for help.

This is exactly what happened I made unsuccessful attempts to get him into a program. During fourth grade we changed schools and he was finally accepted into a speech therapy program but refused to go because he was embarrassed. When Burt was nine years old, we started putting five to ten drops of Lavender in his bath each night after reading that Lavender was calming. After one month we all realized Burt was no longer strutting. This is what convinced us to start experimenting with essential oils. Burt will be 34 years old in July and still uses Lavender in his bath. He no longer stutters. He has realized this is his signature plant.  A signature plant is one that helps the person come back in balance. Lavender plant person when imbalanced hits their heads a lot and doesn’t watch for themselves. This has happened to my son Burt many times. You see Burt is cowboy, horse chiropractor and horse shoer. He has been bucked off, fallen on and been in my different kinds of situations with horses. Burt has hit his head a few times you could say and lavender has always revived him. I love Burt and Lavender. They are meant for each other.

Au Revoir, Don’t forget your Essentials, Use your Common Scents,

Lorrie
