Young Living and Plant Spirit Medicine

  Plant spirit medicine is something I have been passionate about for about 20 years.  I remember trying to buy Thieves when my oldest was starting her daytime (to prevent her from catching colds) and it was so rare to find it that I had to meet strange women in...

Have you ever stood close to the edge of a cliff, and been afraid that you might accidentally jump off?   Not because you want to or anything.  Just that it crosses your mind.  It’s illogical, of course, because jumping off would require going right to the edge,...
