Welcome to Touch of Earth


EarthLeaf2My name is Nancy Brillault,  founder and creator of Touch of Earth, a therapeutic essential oil company.

I am a clinically trained herbalist and certified aromatherapist.  I am a mother and grandmother and someone who has been a passionate advocate for health.  Health on all levels…body,  mind, spirit,  neighborhood and health of our beautiful planet earth.

My background in Native American studies along with Hippocrates famous words “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food” is the basic tenet of my healing principles.  Food includes the plants that provide so much of our daily sustenance as well as our medicines.

Because of the nature of the distillation process of plants to essential oils, these are some of our most potent healers since they heal on all levels, body,  mind and spirit.

Head Lice Are Growing Resistant to Over-the-Counter Chemical Treatments

Over the years, head lice have developed a resistance to chemical treatments, from over the counter options to expensive prescriptions. We have seen the media cycle through warnings about how either the improper use of chemicals to treat head lice, or the need to repeat applications of chemicals has led to the mutation of “Super Lice.” Super Lice Found in 25 States Hard to kill super lice Head Lice Getting Drug-Resistant Super-Lice Found in 25 States A large number of lice populations have gene mutations that may make it resistant to over-the-counter treatments Hard to kill super lice are resistant to many chemicals The bugs known as super lice have developed genetic mutations that make them resistant to many of the over-the-counter and prescription chemicals that used to kill them. Head Lice, Getting Drug-Resistant, Shut Down Idaho School Over-the-counter products like Nix and RID have been effective, but now many cases are becoming drug resistant, so head lice outbreaks like the one in Idaho are on the rise. We see that resistance to chemicals is nothing new across the spectrum of pesticides, from pyrethroids to permethrin and ivermectin. However, in nature, we continue to see pests, insects and parasites avoid certain plants and plant families over millennia of written and oral tradition.
