Can inflammation cause depression

Inflammation Is A Cause of Depression. What Causes Inflammation?

Recent studies in psychiatry have demonstrated that inflammation is a contributing factor in mental depression (Maes, Giorgian-Lavialle et al and Kohler et al).

Back-To-School Essential Oils: My Toolkit

Back-to-School Essential Oils: my must-haves for my students

So for the very first time in the history of their lives, my two children, aged 11 and 14, are attending bricks-and-mortar schools–that’s “real school” to all you non-homeschooling folk. They’ve been homeschooled since the beginning (of time, it sometimes felt like…) and both expressed a desire to attend school, so here we are. I’ve put together a back-to-school essential oils kit that I keep separate from my other oils so I can easily grab them when I need them, so check it out below.

Zika Virus in America? The Most Effective Natural Mosquito Repellent!

The Zika virus, primarily spread through mosquito bites, has been popping up all over the news lately.  There have been concerns, too, that the Zika Virus is coming to America.  Do natural mosquito repellents work or are they as effective as DEET?

While there are as yet no reported cases of Zika transmission in the United States,  The New York Times has recently reported that US officials believe it is only a matter of time before the first US case appears.
