Clearing negative energy without smoke

Posted by Micki Mutch on

A lot of people are looking for ways to clear spaces and negative energy without smoke. While smudging sage can be super enjoyable and cleansing for a lot of people, the smoke involved is not always appropriate. Ever tried smudging sage at your office? Maybe not the best idea.  So what can you do if you're looking for an energy cleansing ritual that you can do absolutely anywhere?

Inspiration from Japan

Posted by Micki Mutch on

In the name of buying slow, sparking joy and creating your best life, I wanted to start sharing more about my process.

Diffuser FAQs including how to clean your diffuser

Posted by Micki Mutch on

Here are some FAQs to help keep your diffuser clean and your oils smelling great.  Can I use one diffuser for all of my oils? Yes! No need to own a million diffusers (unless you want to) but one can be used for all of your oils. You can mix oils right in the diffuser too. Try 2 drops of peppermint with 6 drops of lavender, right in the water tank!  What kinds of oils can I diffuse? This is important. Make sure you're using pure essential oils without "carrier" oils such as jojoba, coconut, or almond oil. Viscous oils could clog...
