YOU ROCK!!

The above listed Reiki Masters have completed all of the necessary Reiki Level 3/Reiki Master training, practice, and attunements and are now Reiki Level 3/Reiki Master Certified. They understand the basics of energetic healing, chakra balancing, how to sense the human energy field, and how to use Reiki to heal themselves and others and are certified providers of private sessions and teach Reiki classes.

Reiki is a healing modality that originated in Japan in the late 1800’s with Dr. Mikau Usui.  The word “Reiki” is of Japanese origin and refers to the Universal Life Force. The name originates from the Japanese concepts of REI (spirit) and KI (life force, energy).

Reiki has also been described as the Japanese word for “universal energy” and within traditional Eastern healing focuses on the “KI” (also known as “Qi”, “Chi”, or “Prana”) as a method of bringing the life force energy back into balance.

Everyday stress, environmental toxins, addictions, etc. negatively impact the flow of the life force energy. Reiki works to re-balance of the subtle energies, which in turn will increase feelings of well being, reduce stress,  and promotes good health.

In essence, Reiki is a method of harnessing the Universal Life Force that exists in the world around us and all living creatures, and using this energy to heal ourselves and others.

This method of energy healing restores harmony to negatively impacted areas of the body by flowing through these areas in the energy field and charging them with positive energy to restore harmony.

We are all born with this natural ability to heal, and Reiki is a wonderful method of learning to utilize this natural ability.

Thank you to Reiki Master Teachers Joyce Dierschke, Dan Craft, and Becki Baumgartner for teaching the class.

Also a big thank you to Marc Smith, DVM of Natchez Trace Veterinary Services for letting us use his beautiful clinic!!

Copaiba, Cannabis & CBD: What’s the Scoop?

Copaiba Cannibis & CBD - What's The Scoop?

Copiaba vs. Cannabis & CBD

Much controversy surrounds Cannabis, medicinal marijuana, CBD oil and THC containing products.

You need to understand what each product does and how it works to decide which is best for you.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds.

Cannabinoids affect one or both cannabinoid receptors in the human body.

The cannabinoid receptors in the human body are CB1 or CB2.

Some cannabinoids are legal.

Examples are CBD and those found in essential oils.

Others, like THC from cannabis and marijuana, are not.

(Except, of course, medicinal marijuana.)

The Three Types of Cannabinoids

CBD

CBD is short for CannaBiDiol.

CBD is a biochemical constituent of cannabis and hemp plants.

CBD made from hemp is weaker than CBD made from cannabis/marijuana.

CBD from hemp 2-4%. CBD from cannabis is 5-30%.

All CBD extractions contain some amount of THC.

THC is the plant’s biochemical that makes you feel high.

Some CBD products contain a low enough percentage of THC to be legal in our country.

Benefits of CBD Include:

  • Pain relief
  • Anxiety reduction
  • Cancer treatment and prevention
  • Seizure treatment
  • Neurological issues
  • Diabetes prevention (lowers insulin)
  • Cardiovascular health (promotes)

THC

THC stands for TetraHydroCannabinol.

THC is a biochemical constituent of the cannabis plant.

THC is the psychoactive chemical in the plant making people feel high when smoking or using THC products.

THC chemically resembles anandamide, another type of cannabinoid naturally produced in our brains.

Anandamide regulates our appetite, memory, mood, and sleep.

The resemblance is what makes people using THC feel relaxed and hungry.

BCP

BCP is also called Beta-CaryoPhyllene.

BCP is the dietary cannabinoid found in doTERRA’s Copaiba oil.

Copaiba essential oil by doTERRA contains a very high amount of BCP–60%.

BCP is a different type of cannabinoid than CBD. Yet, it directly affects the same CB2 receptors.

And, Copiaba oil contains a much higher active biochemical amount of BCP (60%) than CBD products (2-30%).

BCP is also found in lower amounts in other essential oils like Melissa and black pepper.

What are Cannabinoid Receptors?

Cannabinoid receptors exist all over the body.

Cannabinoid receptors are in the brain, organs, tissues, glands and immune cells.

The cannabinoid system’s goal is body homeostasis.

CB1 and CB2 are the two different types of cannabinoids.

CB1 resides in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs.

CB2 resides in the immune system and structures.

Tissues sometimes contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors.

CB1 receptors interact with THC to cause psychoactive effects.

CB2 receptors do not cause psychoactive effects.

CBD oil and Copiaba essential oil target CB2 receptors.

CBD oil interacts indirectly with CB2 receptors.

Copiaba interacts directly with CB2 receptors.

As mentioned earlier, CB2 receptors reside mostly in the immune system.

CB2 receptors improve immunity, reduce inflammation, and relieve certain types of pain.

So to summarize CBD vs Copaiba oil …..

THC

THC comes from the cannabis or hemp plants and is illegal in most states.

CBD OIL

CBD oil from hemp contains only trace amounts of THC and is legal in all 50 states.

CBD oil does not make you high.

CBD oil helps neurological issues, pain and more by indirectly interacting with CB2 receptors in the body.

COPAIBA & BCP

BCP, caryophyllene, is a cannabinoid found in very high levels in doTERRA’s Copaiba oil.

BCP interacts directly with CB2 receptors.

Remember what we mentioned earlier: CB2 receptors improve immunity, reduce inflammation, and relieve certain types of pain.

When ingested, the BCP in Copaiba possesses strong antioxidant properties, promotes healthy cellular function, supports immune function, intestinal tract and colon.

Research shows Copaiba essential oil helps keep mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy looking.

Applying Copaiba topically keeps skin clear while helping reduce the appearance of blemishes.

A recent research study found ingesting Copaiba supports uterine health and ease menstruation.*

Why I choose doTERRA’s Copaiba Oil

  • Much less expensive than CBD
  • 100% drug-free with no risk of containing THC and 100% legal
  • Not from the cannabis plant, so using Copaiba won’t affect a drug test
  • DoTERRA extensively tests all products, including third-party testing. doTERRA guarantees all oils are oils free of pesticides, heavy metals, and contaminants.

How to Use Copaiba Essential Oil

Copaiba is a very versatile oil!

Ways to use Copaiba:

  • Add Copaiba to your toner or apply to your face. Doing so keeps skin clear while reducing the appearance of blemishes.
  • Copaiba blends well with Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense, or Ylang Ylang.
  • Ingest by adding 1-3 drops to water, juice or tea. Or place drops under your tongue. Copaiba supports the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and immune system*. Copiaba is also an anti-inflammatory.
    Diffuse! Copaiba’s woody scent can help calm any anxious feelings you may be experiencing.
  • Take one to two drops in your mouth or in a veggie capsule. Copiaba is an antioxidant and prevents potential damage to your cells from oxidation.*
  • Use in a calming bath by adding two to three drops to body wash before mixing it in the water.

Plant Reiki Experiment by Megan Schmidt

Plant Reiki Experiment by Megan Schmidt

Reiki on Plants Experience by Megan SchmidtWe all know that everything is energy.
We also know that Reiki works on everything.
Below is a very cool Plant Reiki Experiment from a Reiki 2 Practitioner in Tennessee.
So, I have a reiki experience with plants.
Because in class you talked about how you didn’t have any Reiki experiments on plants.
Well, I water the plants that we sell at work.
So, for fun I decided to channel Reiki everyday into the hose as I watered the plants.
The plants are thriving more than ever! And they are producing a lot of food on them!
Then, a plant completely died and my guide told me to not give up on it.
So I channeled reiki into the soil of it’s pot for several days.
This morning when I checked the plant, there was all new growth coming through! 

And the other plants that died, the ones I didn’t give Reiki as a test. They didn’t come back. It has been amazing to see how plants just soak Reiki up.

And the energy that comes off of them is amazing!
We’ve had more customer sales!
