What’s The Deal With Essential Oils?

Aromatherapy is a relaxation and restorative technique that uses plant oils to heal the body. Quite literally, as you inhale, the molecules from the essential oils through the ‘aroma’,  begin to work on stress levels, cognitive performance and circulation – among other things. When receiving an aromatherapy massage, the masseuse or aromatherapist might typically light a few scented candles as well as massage you with essential oils. Some psychologists even utilise aromatherapy to create stress-free environments, while others’ intentions are to trigger certain memories and experiences. So where do you start?

The Hemp Report

On 18 September, 2018 the South African Constitutional Court ruled the private use of marijuana legal.

So, What is Earth Month Really all About?

There are three dates every person should remember each year: their birthday, valentines day, and new year’s eve. Parents might include children’s birthdays, a wife their spouse, and a brother their younger sibling, but those generally seem to be locked in as the most important days of the year – or in my opinion at least. Commemoration days are all the rage right now. The amounts of pancake days, international compliment days and national Oreo days is dizzying, so I tend to give them all a miss. I do observe Earth Day and Earth Month because I’ve learned to...
