My love affair with essential oils started the same time I started to take my first healing workshop Auset healing Temple. In the workshop, essential oils were used for the meditations. There I discovered the magic of Sacred Frankincense and it’s benefit and is one of my favourite oils 7 years on. It was after the workshop I signed up to Young Living. Now I know there are many other brands out there, and I’m no stranger to other oils out there in fact if I find one that is pure, I would acquire it but when I mostly use essential oils by Young living. How do I tell if it’s pure? Purely by what is given to me by GOD or the higher beings, by my nose of course. I have been purely a user and as a user I’ve discovered the healing benefits on peppermint, rosemary, basil, pan away, frankincense, sacred frankincense, purification, lavender, tangerine, lemon..etc etc. You get the picture. These discovery was through trial and error. I could easily apply neat on myself. However recently I’m finding my skin getting very sensitive. It could be maybe I’m going through pre-menopause (a dreaded condition all women go through :D) but it I were to mix in carrier oil, it goes well on my skin.
From my love of the oils, I’ve begun to make cleansing oil, putting it into my lipstick / lip care, made moisturiser with it, bath my canines in the oils and make shampoos with it. Now bathing my canines in it..is it dangerous? Not the oils I use. There are contraindication when bathing cats and certain oils, just google and find out what they are. My dogs, are used to the oils as I use to put them onto my skin. I must admit since using the oils, I can’t take the smell of perfumes. Today I went in for my long overdue facial and the product that was used, I know it must be an expensive one, I could not take the fragrant smell of the toner, the serum or cleanser. I think this will be my only time I’m going back for a facial. I will endeavour to make my sunscreen, my moisturisers with essential oils.
As a healer, essential oils work hand in hand. I am grateful for being introduced to it. In fact I recently mixed the oils for arthritis and the feedback I got was it really reduced the pain and inflammation when it flares up. I remember I had an oil for confidence and asked a client to apply it and lo and behold, she was more confident when she spoke, her thoughts were well thought and coherent. I mix the oils when the needs calls for and for specific needs. So if you need some oils for a specific purpose, you can contact me via email.
So I’m also in a midst of decluttering my house! Even as healers I am still human and I love my watches, bags, earrings, shoes…etc. It is quite difficult to even clear the things because the thought of I’d wear this always comes to mind but hey who am I kidding, I haven’t worn this in years what makes me think I’ll put it on now eh? Perhaps it is the approaching of the dark moon that I’m clearing out the old, things I don’t need, things I don’t use or wear. It is during this period that I’m feeling like I want to streamline everything. It is still a work in progress.
Work beckons again. Until next read, Blessings to all.
