A case for meditation

I am sitting in a gastroenterologist’s waiting room, waiting for results from a biopsy taken last month. I’m worried about what I will hear and the treatment the doctor might recommend.

Essential oils sparked my curiosity years ago, but last spring, a friend’s enthusiasm for EOs (during yoga sessions) rekindled my interest. For the better part of 2017, my EO collection has been growing exponentially! […]
