10 Recipes with Jasmine 3 % Essential Oil – Jasminum grandiflorum

Jasmine essential oil is stunning. I’m not sure how else to describe its heavenly scent. Jasmine is a sweet little flower with an almighty punch when it is converted into an oil – sweet and heady, syrupy and luscious. I recommend you always have a little bottle of this oil with you to open your energy to the feminine mystique within you.

Why do I say 3%? Jasmine is an expensive oil (yes you can buy it as a 100% pure essential oil), so it is more commonly found already diluted into a 3% ratio in jojoba oil. Aromatherapists usually work on a 2.5% ratio when blending so 3% essential oils are ready to use on your skin. For more info see my article “Essential Oils 3% in Jojoba – What are they, and Why?”.

There is more than one type of jasmine produced (The Jasmines –  A Love Story Full of Promises), but today we will be talking about Jasmine grandiflorum. Let’s check out some recipes.

1. Pure Pulse Point Perfume

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! (I will be adjusting the drops of 3% jasmine intuitively for these recipes).

2. Nourishing Body Oil Blend

For a coat of your body use 3 teaspoons of carrier oil in a little dish and, add 7 – 8 drops of essential oil. It’s always best to patch test first, before you apply all over.

***** Always put the drops of essential oil into the bottle or dish first, then add the carrier oil. It gives the scents time to create a synergistic fusion.

For a 50ml bottle of oil add 25 drops and see my articles “Ratios for Blending Essential Oils – A Reminder of the Basics” and “Aromatherapy – It’s Easy as 1 2 3”

“I am Beautiful”

Your Lucky Essential Oils for Chinese New Year – Year of the Goat

2015 is the Chinese Year of the Wood Goat. Also referred to as the Sheep, this year is a more congenial year for everyone, with a very social aspect. It is a good time to nurture creativity and to work with others to help fulfill your goals. The goat is a social animal, happy to get along with others and go with the flow.

We may see a burst of creativity internationally, in art and fashion, and a growing focus on sustainability in all fields of life. Contentment in familial relationships will help us to be happier with ourselves and in all our relationships too.

The essential oils that I love for everyone in this goat year are:

Patchouli – grounding and earthly ,peace, world peace

Ylang Ylang – release anger and frustration, an oil of love

Pine – inspirational, abundance through others, connect to mother nature

An Essential Oil Guide to Opening Your Heart Centre This Valentines Day

Please check out my new book REVELATION! – Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils

An Essential Oil Guide to Opening Your Heart Centre This Valentines Day

Open your heart to possibilities

Open your heart to possibilities!

 

Our hearts are wonderful little powerhouses that physically keep us going – yay! So why do we talk about our hearts in more expansive terms?

We relate to our hearts in much more emotional terms and make the distinction that we feel emotions in our hearts and we think with our brains. Of course everything is interconnected, and probably much more elusive than we really believe.

So if I say the heart centre or heart chakra, I am referring to our emotional centre, powered by the heart, in a very intuitive way.

If we are closed to sharing our emotional self we may have thoughts and feelings that tell us love is dangerous. We may also feel physically blocked to love – constricted around the heart.

Release the cobwebs in your heart

Release the cobwebs in your heart

Having a flow of energy throughout the body can keep you on the road of well-being. If we don’t have a flow of energy through the heart we may feel:

* stressed

* unhappy, even depressed, unable to enjoy life

* unwell, even to the point of having physical heart problems

* unable to relate to others and could become a loner

* have a feeling of “blah” – everything is grey

* no one understands us

hearts to you

hearts to you

 

Which oils can help the emotions flow freely and lift the veil of ordinary?

Bergamot – calm and connected, from what is to what if?

Rosewood – helps create a wonderful flow of loving energy in your heart chakra, giving and receiving

Rose – the Queen of oils to help with grief, moving forward, loving your self and accepting divine love

Fennel – licorice love – be kind to yourself and good things will happen

Patchouli – peace and nurturing

Palmarosa – flexibility and new ideas about love

Sandalwood – opens the base chakra to ignite passion throughout the body

Jasmine – sensuality

Ignite your heart

Ignite your heart

So this St Valentines’s Day, whether you are in

* a romantic relationship that’s fabulous

* a romantic relationship that needs renewal or help

* if you are single but really want a significant other

* or you are single but are looking for more meaningful relationships

* or if you’re single and you love it (so basically everyone)

treating yourself with beautiful essential oils will open you to the divine love of the universe, and expand your views on life. Know on this day you were brought here to experience, and one of those things that gets overlooked is interconnectedness. I am you, you are me. Release your heart from restrictions, and really live!

Your heart knows no bounds

Your heart knows no bounds

How Can You Use These Oils for the best Benefit?

1. Open The Bottle and Take a Huge Whiff

2. Put A few Drops Of Oil into the bottom of the Shower

This works in a similar way to just taking a whiff straight from the bottle, but if you’ve got an extra minute, it will give you a completely different experience. Your whole body will be immersed in an essential oil steam. Just cover the drain with a cloth or your foot for a couple of minutes and breathe in the medicinal goodness.

3. Pure Pulse Point Perfume

In a little dish mix some oils and anoint your heart – 3 drops of essential oils and dilute with a few drops of carrier oil – always patch test first!

4. Nourishing Body Oil Blend

For a coat of your body use 3 teaspoons of carrier oil in a little dish and, add 7 – 8 drops of essential oil. It’s always best to patch test first, before you apply all over.

***** Always put the drops of essential oil into the bottle or dish first, then add the carrier oil. It gives the scents time to create a synergistic fusion.

For a 50ml bottle of oil add 25 drops and see my articles “Ratios for Blending Essential Oils – A Reminder of the Basics” and “Aromatherapy – It’s Easy as 1 2 3”

Remember to treat yourself first, then everyone will benefit.

How to Smell an Essential Oil

question-mark

Is there a correct way to smell an essential oil?

Well, I suppose the most important thing is to be careful if you’re a sensitive person.

Once you’ve had the experience of the essential oil you can probably be a bit more adventurous with how deep your inhalation is. Inhaling an essential oil can wake you up, stimulate your brain, and give you a wonderful burst of healing scent.

There’s a cute tip in here too – how to sample a blend of oils before you go ahead and scent your space or make a body oil blend. I might say “stunning” a few too many times …..

 

Thanks so much for watching lovey people.

Expand Your Consciousness with Essential Oils 

Essential oils reflect the same holographic nature of the univers

Essential oils reflect the same holographic nature of the universe

Can you actually expand your awareness and consciousness with essential oils?

Answer: Yes

How?

Answer: Just start using them!

Really.

” The more you use essential oils the more comfortable you will feel about them.

The more at ease you are with these oils the more likely you will be to rely on your intuition.

The more you rely on your intuition, the stronger you will connect to your true self.

The more these connections are used the more confident you will become in your environment.

The better you feel about yourself in your world. the more you will be able to turn your true desires into your destiny, by allowing more of the real you to be revealed.

The more you live and breathe your true purpose in life, the more you will shine from within. Your light will become joy. When others benefit from your joy you are living your destiny, and acknowledging your true spiritual nature.”

An excerpt from the book Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils, Suzanne R Banks.

love essential oils - they will love you back

love essential oils – they will love you back

So yes, I’m quoting myself again, thanks for hanging in there with me. You know I’m right and that’s why you’re here, right now, reading this.

There is a magical presence when you open a bottle of essential oil, as it travels through your brain to the ancient limbic system. Here your experience of the scent is translated across platforms into information that can be converted into memory, and connect us to elusive feelings of knowingness. We can use these newly created memories to tap into a higher intelligence – which is within us all the time – but just might need to be activated.

Essential oils are divinely scented tools to help us evolve into kinder human beings.

Ah the wonders of a universe vibrating in waves of potential!

Ah the wonders of a universe vibrating in waves of potential!

Please simplify your life by removing products that are highly synthetically scented. The harmful chemicals seep into your body and act as the toxins they really are. You are filling your body with harmful information that is not in accordance with well-being.

Please allow yourself the beautiful scents of nature to guide your spiritual journey.

Remember to treat yourself first, then everyone will benefit.

Check out my YouTube channel too, thanks.
