As the Grandmaster Flash says in his 1982 album and single “The Message”
“It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under….”
Don’t go under!
Use essential oils for nurturing, support, expansion and to help shift your focus to what’s really important.

Pure Pulse Point Perfumes
It’s easy to make a little perfume with essential oils but if you are sensitive the right thing to do is to patch test first. So that’s my official stance – patch test first.
I like to choose a couple of oils, put a few drops into a little dish and choose which pulse point or chakra point I want to anoint. It is equally important to smell the oils deeply through your nose so they can go to work on different levels of your brain and body.
Smelling the oils is the primary key.
Wearing the oils is the secondary key.
Using your intention when you create the blend is the underlying key to wonderful synergistic blend.
You could even just use a saucer or Chinese tea cup.
Away we go.
In a little dish mix these oils and anoint your pulse points or chakras – 3 drops of essential oils and dilute with a few drops of carrier oil – always patch test first!
