Life Is Lived In The Periphery

The Human Genome Project (1990-2003), proved that the life, the activity, the energy of the cell, was ‘lived’ in the cytoplasm of the cell…in the periphery.

As I meditate on that, I think of all of the things in my life where that rings true. Life is lived in the day to day rituals, habits and values I hold as a person, and then in the broader sense, the day to day rituals, habits and values we hold as a family.

What we devote our minds and attention to, when no one is looking, is what is produced, grows and flourishes in our relationships, work and recreation and, in turn, makes us into the best version of ourselves.

I can often bristle against the mundane. The waking up at 5, drinking organic green juice, praying, journaling, listening to Tony Robbins, having prayer with my husband, working out, and practicing guitar for 15 minutes. But that is where my life truly is lived. The out growth of that routine shows up in everything else I do in front of and for others. It is light, it is energy and it is life!

Think about how your life is lived in the periphery? Just like me, if your life doesn’t reflect the values that you have or the way that you want your life to look, maybe you need to change up your habits and routines. It is a bit painful to change and build new ‘muscles’, but you will never regret adding value to yourself by living a better life in the periphery<3

I am walking this journey of wholeness with you and I would love to hear from you today!

Fit Bits and Walking!


I told you I got a fit bit and I have been walking more, and feeling great! I also lost 5 pounds and still working toward my goal. I will walk around the house in circles if I didn’t get my 10K steps in for the day! I will walk back and forth in the kitchen while talking to my family if I didn’t reach my goal!! It’s kind of funny (possibly irritating to others) but definitely me😉

So, just encouraging you to walk…clear the mind, get exercise and be the Best you that you can!!

If You Like Exercise You’ll Love…


Today we want to showcase one of our newest products! We call it the Athlete’s Blend. It’s made with a mixture of castor oil and all the essential oils we use for our joint and muscle rub: manuka, rosemary, helichrysum, lavender, roman chamomile, and black pepper. These oils all have different properties ideal for bodies on the move: this blend will soothe soreness, heal and repair skin, warm the muscles, and get you ready to go out on the move again!

Castor oil is amazing for muscles as it is; it penetrates the skin to get to the deepest layers. But with these oils added to it, the effect is amazing!

Many people have tried and loved our muscle rub, which is essentially this blend in lotion form (without castor oil). What makes this product special, besides the amazing qualities of castor oil, is the flannel.

Why flannel, you ask? Well, flannel makes a great compress for sore muscles and joints. When you soak the flannel piece in the oil blend and apply with a hot pack over it, the combination of heat with the oils gets to the root of stiffness and pain and eliminates it! But you don’t even need the hot pad for a good effect. Simply using the oil-saturated flannel can do an amazing job. The flannel is reusable, and there’s no need to wash out the oils after each use. The perpetual saturation only multiplies the results!

We currently sell the Athlete’s Blend and flannel together for only $15. And starting today, we are selling Honest Aromas products at the Binda’s Lane Alpacas and Gifts shop in Franklin! Check out this darling shop, and pick up some Athlete’s Blend while you’re at it!
