What Is Intuition Exactly? Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without the use of logical reasoning. It comes from the Latin word "intueri," which roughly translates, "to look inside." It's also being in tune with the energy around us. We all listen to our instincts at one time or another, whether it's having a premonition or walking into a room and knowing an argument just took place. Everyone had special intuitive gifts. They can come in the form of knowing, seeing, hearing, or feeling -- some people have prophetic dreams, others are good with numbers or dates, while others have a gut feeling that something is about to happen or just don't trust someone because they make them feel uncomfortable.

This journey led to the discovery of what people used for skin care before the introduction of man-made chemicals as well as the science behind their traditional wisdom. Due to the lack of any product on the market that fit the ideal for healthy and effective skin care, I was prompted to create a formula that I could use and share with others—a simple recipe for traditional nourishing and healing skin care.

Harvesting Mint for Herbal Infusions « Mind Body and Sole For the past couple of days I’ve been harvesting mint to dry and use throughout the winter in an herbal infusion that I drink as a type of “multi-vitamin.” I’ll share the recipe with you later, but first I wanted to share with you how easy it is to harvest and dry mint.

You can cut mint down at the base of the plant since mint is an herb that grows from the roots.
