WHY INDIA?

WHY INDIA?

May 27th 2022 Blog

I am in India until the middle of July… WHY OH WHY?  Do I go there for my education? Why India? What about health & food issues, poverty and overpopulation? And in the summer when it’s gorgeous in Colorado?  #wth

In my opinion, you can find chaos ANYwhere!  New York City, Guadalajara México, Thailand, and more…  There is an organization to the chaotic lifestyle of India.  I generally spend my time in the sleepy northern part of Rishikesh where it’s known to be a Yogi town.  It’s alcohol and meat free.  Travelers come from all over the world on an inner pilgrimage to soul shine and find a deeper meaning to life.  It’s quite a beautiful energy in a person, as they unwind social dogma. 

The Peppermint and ‘Himalayan’ Geranium, both featured this month, come from India.  The ancient practices and heirloom seeds cannot be matched.  There is a unique pride in work, that I find unmatched.  India even has it’s own time zone.  Did you know that? It’s 11.5 hours ahead during daylight savings and 12.5 hours ahead on standard time, from Colorado. Exactly ½ way around the globe.  Yup, they are off of everyone in the world by 30 minutes. So strange!  And so wonderful!

We have access to more and more education and in many ways we are returning back to medicine that grows from the earth and science that can be felt from the stars.  Vedic astrology was always the science kings relied upon, it’s evolved in so many ways but it’s inception was also in India.  It’s this cosmic science I am studying in India this time.  I’ll be able to offer guidance on scientific aspects of who you are and the timing of things in your life.  It’s quite fascinating.  Book a discovery call and let me introduce you to yourSELF in a way you’ve always wanted to be seen.. The truth of who you are, not the stories of what’s evolved.  If you cannot find an opening in my calendar,  message me personally and I’ll get you set up!

India is the motherland of wisdom in my opinion..

Sweet as Almonds!!

Sweet as Almonds!!

April 28 2022 BLOG


Having fun is an essential part of life don’t you think? Can you have ‘fun’ doing something ‘dull’ …and be ‘irritated’ when doing an activity that brings ‘joy’?   Why is this? I have a saying, “It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, it’s who you are with”.  Our state of consciousness is always more powerful than our state of affairs.  How can we change our state of mind/consciousness?

I HAVE AN OIL FOR THAT!!  read on..


Almond Oil is a WONDER carrier oil.  It’s a fabulous ‘fatty’ oil that extends the absorption rate of essential oils or simply acts as its own moisturizer.  It has a softly sweet scent and feels luxurious on the skin. 

Did you know that the almond is found inside the fruits of the almond tree? These pretty fruits look so similar to peaches. Almonds are high in vitamins A & E and carry powerful omega 3 fatty acids, minerals including potassium, phosphorus and zinc.  Cold pressing the oil properly keeps these nutrients active.

Almond oil is used often in Ayurveda because its ‘doshic balance’ is calming.  Using Almond oil for a baby’s foot massage will certainly ease the mood and belly.   Even ‘big babies’ over the age of 20!  And you don’t need to add any Essential oils at all.  But we understand that you wanna!

Adding oils like Frankincense, carterii or this month’s featured Majmua Udd attar will enhance the bouquet and the medicinal benefits.  Using almond oil in a salt scrub is heavenly; we are offering a DIY class in May that will include a lot of information.  Can’t make it but want to Zoom in? Reply to this email and we’ll add you to our list.

Gorgeous Body Oil

1 oz. Almond oil

6 drops Majmua Udd attar

6-8 drops Mandarin (red is brighter in aroma) ~Frankincense would add more of an earthy scent.

  1. Use liberally after a shower/bath on skin
  2. Deep scalp treatment. Massage in ½ oz covering ends, leave on overnight; ADD SHAMPOO TO DRY/OILY HAIR first and create paste, then add water and rinse out oil. May shampoo twice (lightly, second time)
  3. Lightly add oil to dry hair ends
  4. Use lightly to skin over pulse points and apply additional UNscented oil/creme to seal in soft scent

Let me know how you used the oils this month!  We love hearing from you.
peace + love!Somah

Some Wisdom for your lungs…

Some Wisdom for your lungs…

Some Wisdom for your lungs…

What do Conifer trees, winter solstice (in the N. Hemisphere), Christmas trees and health all have in common?  And why do I specify N. Hemisphere?

One word:  L U N G S
Lung power is important, especially in the colder temperatures.  We can build up phlegm and feel sluggish, like hibernating for weeks. Our lungs can easily build up fluid if proper health practices aren’t in place. Pneumonia, Bronchitis, COVID-19 and all varieties are affected greatly by the respiratory system.  Do steams with these treasures of nature and dissolve viral issues.  I have a friend in India that has had 100% success in KILLING the COVID virus rapidly with simple ‘towel over the head’ steams.  Amazing! 
There is a saying in yoga, “trees that have deep roots and flexible limbs survive hurricanes”.  Think of the deep roots to trees such as, Firs, Cedarwoods, Spruces, Pines, Hemlock. 

 

FYI~ Balsam Fir is not a ‘true’ Balsam. A Balsam is technically an oil extracted from a resin that contains benzoic or cinnamic acid. Officially Conifers are trees whose seeds are produced in woody cones with needle-like leaves and resinous wood

There are several different plant families you’ll find in the group of Conifers, as listed above.  The Conifer trees generally offer fresh-herbaceous-coniferous aromatic aromas. Their notes are uplifting, stimulating and invigorating. They can enhance our energy, stimulate circulation, improve motivation and even stamina. They are mentally refreshing and emotionally restorative. See why they are used so heavily November – February?  They help us get moving and infuse the spirit of ‘light’ in us, when things can feel dark.

The high ‘monoterpene’ components encourage a movement of energy in the body, which supports opening up the lungs and even the sinuses, which is highly supportive to overall vitality in the mind, body and spirit. This also means they can expire faster.  Keep them capped tightly, in a cool and dark place. NEVER IN THE SUNLIGHT.

 

So diffuse those holiday blends when it’s cold! Add 1-2 drops per Tablespoon of carrier (like Jojoba, Sesame or Olive.. NOT coconut) and massage onto achy tired muscles.  Avoid the face but scalp application lightly is divine. Stay in the hairline.  Want to create a chest rub? Add 1-2 drops into 15 mL of carrier and add 1 drop of Eucalyptus. Ahhhhhh breathing will feel unrestricted and emotions will balance.

All of our holiday blends have Conifer oils, to enhance your physical and emotional wealth during the busiest time of the year, in the ‘modern’ time.

A day of Gratitude…

A day of Gratitude…

NOVEMBER 25th

A day of Gratitude…

In my world.. It ALL begins here. A grateful heart… 

For the amazing journey of humanity and ALL of it’s rawness. The ‘good, bad, exciting and confusing..’

When I can settle my heart into the Art of NOT Knowing.. I seem to actually calm down the “over busy” mind. 

HOW THE HECK  does one ‘settle’ the heart in a world with such opposition? 
You ready for it??  Ahh, yes.. INHALE an Essential oil.  Choose Grapefruit (any citrus oil) or Bergamot and deeply breathe in. Hold your breath and exhale.  Do that 4 more times.  Maybe Rose oil is ‘your jam’ or something earthy like Patchouli or Vetiver?

Get into a state of consciousness that feels like it brings kindness into your eyes.  From THAT state of awareness choose to look at your life.  Realize how it’s always working out for you.  Life is ALLways whispering through intuition and synchronicity.  Essential oils work with the limbic system and this gives us a chance to interrupt patterns that we desire to change, while introducing habits we’d like to form.  ALL WITH SMELL & SCENT.  I am thankFULL for that wisdom. Wanna learn more?  Register for this 21 day dive into establishing a change of habits HERE.

Our DIY packages give you the tools and wisdom to customize your blends.  This will give you confidence in the future to experiment with new options.  

 

Our “CLASSIC” oils will be perfect to get started. 

The “ALCHEMY” collection is for the enthusiast that’s ready to simply dive in.

 

I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to supply arguably truly THE BEST Essential oils on the planet.  Yes, the entire globe.

What DO you have?

What DO you have?

When I was in India in 2013, in Ayurveda school (Ayurveda means, ‘the Science of Life’) studying natural remedies for acute and chronic health problems, we learned how to modify a recipe. As any talented chef will tell you, there are countless ways to personalize a common dish.  And just because flour and sugar are both white, this does not mean they can be interchanged, right?  


I am L O V I N G the new DIY (do it yourself) kits because even I, am making combinations I’ve never used because I had ‘other oils’ at my disposal and overlooked some EVERYDAY CLASSICS! 


If you are on the fence about these two collections, I give you HONEST reassurance.  The recipes are so simple and you have tools for measuring AND opening bottles.  I am a geek for learning and I absolutely desire this to be fun and educational AND OF COURSE healing for your immune system and mental wealth.


I am offering a FREE 5 mL Cedar, atlas with the ‘Classic EsScentials’ and a FREE 5 mL Jasmine grandiflorum with the Alchemy’.
THIS WILL NOT BE POSTED OR ADVERTISED any place else and you must use the coupon at checkout after adding the correlating oil(s) to your cart.  Truly I am curious how many read the full email and this is one way for me to reward you. Even in years to come, as it will be posted in the blog.  (It is limited to 5 uses per person)
Use code:
FREECEDAR  (Classic)
FREEJASMINE  (Alchemy)

WHAT CAN YOU MAKE?! I bet you want a few freebie recipes!!! Okay:

For Classic EsScentials:

Pain Relief AND inflammation (headaches or muscle aches; including skin/bone bruising)
In a 5 mL bottle:
3. 5 mL Lavender
1.5 mL Frankincense
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One hit wonders!!  The following single oils can be applied, easily and alone.
*
2 drops of Tea tree~ in a glass of warm salt water and gargle for a soothing effect on the throat
1 drop of Patchouli~ on an open wound to soothe skin and act as a temporary antiseptic until it can be fully washed with soap and water. Then apply again before covering with a band-aid

 

The Alchemy Collection:

The following recipe is for adding to a 1 oz (included) carrier of Jojoba. 
VaVooom ~a little aphrodisiac goes a long way
2 Vetiver
2 Cinnamon
2 Bergamot
2 Mandarin
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hair Love ~to be applied to damp hair or as a finishing product LIGHTLY
3 mL Jojoba (add DROPS below as you desire)
8 Bergamot
4 Cinnamon
3 Mandarin
3 Vetiver

 

There are so many fun ideas to become knowledgeable about Essential oils in these kits. Take advantage of the FREE 5 mL oil as a perfect bonus!  And we’ll email you extra tips for usage with your extra oils.

DIY

(do it yourself)

I remember when...

one of my sons, as a toddler, would holler out, “..I do it my own self..!” ..as an older sibling or parent would try to assist.  So determined to be independent, that it was sheer joy watching him figure things out, once I realized that was his nature.  He loved using his brain that way.  He was NOT being stubborn. Fortunately, I saw that and began putting him in safe environments where he could do just that.. ‘do it his own self’!

Do you know one of those types?  PERHAPS YOU!?  Is that part of the reason you adore Essential oils?
  • Do you wish you could tinker just a bit more but not sure how?
  • Would you like to have an afternoon ‘craft session’ with others but don’t have exactly the right supplies? Or know just what to do?
  • Do you know someone that would like step by step directions on making everyday household blends for the diffuser, first aid kit and massage blends for pain relief or simply as a natural ‘perfume’?
  • Would you like recipes for exactly the oils you have and need nothing more?
  • Would you like to understand which oils work in what environment?
  • Are you a fan of the idea:
    “Keep It Simple Stupid”..  K I S S
  • Are you looking for unique holiday gift ideas?
  • Would you like to SAVE money by purchasing everything together vs buying each item?
  • DO YOU LOVE SAVITUR BOTANICALS items and what to craft up your own?
