The world needs healers.
I truly believe when you move deeply into your body, cultivate your inner knowing, and honor your radiant sacredness, you become a healer. Essential oils and aromatherapy are tools for your healing journey.
How could I best share these tools while letting my creativity out to play? This question has tortured me for many months while I figured out what to do with a rack full of essential oils and some aromatherapy education. Then this moon cycle happened and I experienced, in rapid succession, inspiration, clarity, a plan, momentum, and manifestation. Sometimes it works like that.
Yesterday I presented a limited line of aromatherapy preparations and essential oil blends on a brand new Facebook page. I intend to offer three preparations and two blends each season.
Please say hello to Inspired Aromatherapy.
I created Inspired Aromatherapy to share healing tools with you in two ways: by creating nurturing and uplifting blends that support you so you can enjoy living, and by teaching you how to make your own blends at seasonal workshops. With these tools, you can be a healer – for yourself, for your family and friends, for your community – and the world needs more healers.
Soon these items will be available in our Etsy shop, Adirondack Earth Lore. Until then, please email me and I will be happy to get you more details or help with an order.
Spring 2016 Offerings:
Pout-Able Lip Balm
Genetics are a funny thing. I’ve got elf-like ears from my dad’s family. From my mom’s side came a lower lip that can pout with the best of them. When that lip comes out, you’d better watch out, because I want what I want and I am going to keep pouting until I get it. But dry, cracked lips can’t pout without pain. I was inspired to create Pout-Able Lip Balm so we can all be pouty when we need to. Geranium essential oil soothes split skin, grapefruit essential oil tones the skin and underlying tissue, and a dash of raw honey adds shine and invites a kiss to make it all better. Ingredients: organic white beeswax, organic coconut oil, raw honey, vitamin E, grapefruit essential oil, geranium essential oil ($3.00 per 1/2 ounce tin)
Keep Moving! Muscle & Joint Cream
Springtime calls us out of winter’s rest and into action. After a few weeks of yoga workshops, spring cleaning and hikes, I was inspired to make a super supportive cream for muscles and joints. Eucalyptus and lavender are anti-inflammatory, and clove helps to relieve joint pain. Shea butter nourishes the skin while delivering the gently warming oil combination. Ingredients: Organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, eucalyptus globulus essential oil, lavender essential oil, clove essential oil ($11.00 per 4 ounce jar)
Take a Hike! Foot Bath
The inspiration for this luxurious foot soak was my now 12-year-old son. I’ve been dragging him up mountains since he was young. A few years ago he started complaining about how much his feet hurt after a long hike, and threatened to stop coming with me. I introduced him to Epsom salts, and now the promise a warm foot bath is the only thing that will get him to lace up his boots. The oil blend reinvigorates your feet and – bonus! – fights off athlete’s foot. Ingredients: Epsom salts, sea salt, peppermint essential oil, geranium essential oil, lemongrass essential oil, rosemary essential oil ($5.00 per 4 ounce jar, which contains salts for two (2) salts)
Inspired diffuser blends are 2ml bottles of 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. These blends may contain plant oils that can irritate the skin due to the high concentration of beneficial compounds, so please do not apply undiluted to your skin. Use 8-10 drops in a commercial diffuser or 1-2 drops on a clay diffuser pendant. To scent a votive candle, light the candle until the wax melts on top, then blow it out and add 1-2 drops to the melted wax. Let it sit for a moment, then relight the wick.
I just got a new deck of plant spirit cards, and I drew Bleeding Heart to inspire this blend. Bleeding Heart’s spirit is unconditional love. You are worthy of love, because you ARE love! What a perfect theme for spring! I blended Wild Chamomile, Ylang Ylang and Cinnamon Bark essential oils for a delightful scent that both opens and warms the heart. Enjoy the love! ($18.00 for 2ml bottle)
My life is incomplete without my tribe. I am inspired every day by the beautiful, powerful and oh-so-supportive warrior goddesses who make up my circle of friends, so I created this blend for them. Cypress essential oil keeps us grounded to the earth, while myrrh and lemon oils invoke spiritual lunar energy. Hello, intuition and sacredness! ($8.00 for 2ml bottle)
