Back to the Beginning
Posted on: January 31, 2016

This blend is a very personal one for me because I have such strong associations with these Oak and Earth smells..
Growing up with a wood stove for heat, managing firewood is a year round activity. Dirt was year round too I suppose. Garden dirt, river dirt, dirt on dogs feet. So much formative time spent with the smells of Oak and moss and lichen and earth.

This is one of my favorite blends.

Anointing and the chakras
Posted on: January 14, 2016

Anoint the crown of your head for opening the spirit. Angelica, Frankincense, Sage and Cedarwood essential oils are some suggestions.

Your third eye to see clearly, yourself, your vision of the future, accurate perceptions of others. Use Lemon or Ravensare for awareness. Black pepper or Ginger for the courage to see.

Your throat chakra or the back of your neck to speak truthfully, to improve the relationship between what you think and feel and what you say. Jasmine to improve the self esteem, Peppermint and Basil too.

Your heart chakra to increase your feelings of empathy and for your impulses to come from love. Rose, of course. Chamomiles for patience, Myrrh to access some emotions.

Your solar plexus chakra to engage your power. Ginger and Pepper for the power and courage, Citrus to reduce your doubt.

Your sacral chakra to access deep and covered emotions and wisdom, to gain trust and attachment. Jasmine and Ylang, Myrrh to help access them. Citrus oils to distribute the energy you find.

Your root chakra to ground. Patchouli, Vetiver and Oakmoss are go-to oils for this.

There are so many other places on your body to anoint! Your hands before you work, to make it sacred. Your spine to be upright and strong. Your feet for everything! Your feet for walking a path with intention. Your skull for instincts.


Using a Magical Blend oil.

Use them to help focus. Focus on the smell of them help narrow your thoughts during meditation.
Use them to clean and shield yourself, your tools or belongings.
Use them to anoint yourself, your tools or belongings. Use what you applied to act as a magnet to something represented by the oils.

Ritual blends
Posted on: January 12, 2016

An act done with intention can become a ritual. When I start the day reading mantras it is because I intend to have them as a reminder throughout the day. When I review my intentions and desires, rewrite and reframe them it is because I don’t want them to be buried or fall by the wayside. Those are small rituals. I do these things to create a pattern of what I think, how I think and how I use my mind. I intend that this pattern will cause a change in me, thereby causing an outward change.

You can elaborate your rituals with symbols, sounds and smells; things that better connect you to that unseen you are opening yourself to and reaching for.

Cellulite blend
Posted on: January 11, 2016

2 mls of each Eucalyptus citriodora, Lemon, Cedarwood, Sage, Cypress and MQV in 4 ounces of base oil. Something with high transdermal absorption, I think Hazelnut is best.

Massage this in using an avocado pit. You can do this self massage a few minutes before showering. If you can’t handle using the avocado pit, if it hurts or if it slips away too easily you can apply with bare hands or a dry brush.

Would you rub my feet, hunny?
Posted on: January 11, 2016

My feet are cold in the winter, they won’t feel warm ’till May I’m afraid.

The right one aches, I’ve got this ankle/plantar fasciitis think my chiro and massage therapist and I are working on and I stand a lot.

Any base oil will do, I suggest something with a lot of slip like Grapeseed oil. An ounce of that with 6 drops each Black Pepper and Lavender.

Black pepper and most Lavenders are both analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Black pepper is a circulatory stimulant, it stimulates local blood circulation, that helps with the pain relief and can be warming.

3 must have oils for this season
Posted on: January 11, 2016

Be prepared to treat your household this winter season.

A tight cough can be treated by diffusing Rosemary verbenone, Cypress and Eucalyptus globulus.

These oils are inexpensive and keep very well.

Rosemary verbenon is mucylotic, antispasmodic and expectorant. Cypress is astringent, decongestant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Eucalyptus globulus is a must in a cough and cold blend. Eucalyptus globulus is effective against many respiratory pathogens, it is antispasmodic, decongestant and expectorant.
