The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

Sarah is an ER Doctor turned soap maker.  After almost ten years of practice, she became unsettled about the course of her career. She liked the work, and was good at it. But the practice of emergency medicine was not what she thought it would be. The paperwork. The dictations. The constant hum of worry in her brain about the existence of human error – that she could miss something with a potentially devastating result. And there was the upsetting fact that many of the patients she cared for had absolutely no interest in contributing to their own health.

She leased a commercial space in Carbondale, Colorado.  She put together a green facility with a small retail space, a soap making area, a perfumery station, and two “clean rooms” (clean room attire required) for making skin care products. She launched the store and the website in April of 2012. This is where she operates today.

She loves what she does now more than she could have ever have imagined.  She does miss a few things about being in the ER, but, in some ways, feels like she is practicing a broader medicine now – helping people choose natural and organic skin care products, encouraging them to nourish themselves physically and spiritually, and detoxifying their medicine cabinets all the while. Guiding people to make healthier choices for their skin, their bodies, their minds, and this beautiful planet seems like a brand of medicine that could really do some good.

 

Connect with Sarah-

Topics:

  • Tell us all the things!  Who is Sarah from Osmia Organics?  How did you go from ER Doctor to soap maker and owning a thriving organic beauty product company?
  • What was your Golden Hour or defining moment that really inspired you to take the leap in your life when it came to your health and wellness?
  • So I really want to talk all things essential oils with you and share with the audience some tips.  First can you share what the name Osmia means and how it really is the essence of your company? (I can just hear you saying..”Return To Your Senses”)
  • I love how you have whole blog posts on your site dedicated to one essential oil and it’s benefits. You paint such a clear picture of the oil and even what it takes to make it. What are some common misconceptions you find people believe about essential oils that aren’t true, or things you wished they knew?
  • When differentiating between essential oil fragrance and synthetic fragrance what are the main differences someone should understand? Is there anything specific on a label?
  • Can you share about the power of essential oil quality and sourcing?  Is there a difference- should we be looking for organic?
  • Often you hear of people taking essential oils internally- what is your take on this and is it safe?
  • Can you share your top 3 essential oils and how you incorporate them into your life?
  • I get this question a lot and would love to have you share your thoughts. I know you have a blog post too about it. What are your thoughts on essential oils during pregnancy?
  • A question we ask all our guests- what are 3 health habits that have made the biggest impact on your health?
  • Where can everyone find you?  Social channels, website, etc.

What You Should Know When Vaccinating Your Child with Dr Ben Lynch

What You Should Know When Vaccinating Your Child with Dr Ben Lynch

In episode #34 we are diving deep into what you should know when vaccinating your child.  This is actually an episode I recorded with Dr. Ben Lynch a couple years ago when I had the Gurl Gone Green Podcast.  I’m bringing it up again because the topic of vaccines is a hot one and not going anywhere, but also because this interview isn’t a do this or do that interview but one to inform the consumer.

Dr. Lynch has experienced the effects of vaccines first hand in patients and has interviewed some of the leading doctors and researchers on vaccines.  This isn’t meant to be an anti-vaccine podcast but an educational podcast.  The goal is to arm you as a parent or guardian with the information to make an informed choice for you and your family.  Often vaccines are treated as a cookie cutter approach for everyone, but unfortunately every body is different.  In this podcast, Dr. Lynch and I discuss vaccines that should be avoided considering the research, events that put children at risk for developing autism or spectrum disorders post vaccination, if those with MTHFR should avoid vaccinations, what HERD Immunity is and SO much more.  You don’t want to miss this podcast!  It’s packed full of relevant information.  Plus, Dr. Lynch shares his top resources for further education on vaccines.

Dr. Ben Lynch received his Cell and Molecular Biology, BS from the University of Washington and his ND from Bastyr University. His passion for identifying the cause of disease directed him towards nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction. Currently, he researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR and methylation defects. You may learn more about Dr Lynch and his work at www.MTHFR.net. Dr Lynch is also the President & CEO of Seeking Health, a company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theodor.

 

 

Connect with Dr. Ben Lynch-

 

Topics Discussed-

  • What vaccines you could avoid based on your background?
  • What is HERD Immunity?
  • How does the state of your immune system affect how your body handles vaccines?
  • What does MTHFR mean when dealing with vaccines and should you avoid vaccines if you have it?
  • What does delaying the vaccine schedule mean?
  • What events put children at risk for developing autism or a spectrum disorder post vaccination?
  • How can lifestyle affect outcome of vaccinations?
