The Rose Family by Robert Frost
 
The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple’s a rose,
And the pear is, and so’s
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only know
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose–
But were always a rose.

The Grave and The Rose by Victor Hugo

 
The Grave said to the Rose,
“What of the dews of dawn,
Love’s flower, what end is theirs?”
“And what of spirits flown,
The souls whereon doth close
The tomb’s mouth unawares?”
The Rose said to the Grave.

The Rose said, “In the shade
From the dawn’s tears is made
A perfume faint and strange,
Amber and honey sweet.”
“And all the spirits fleet
Do suffer a sky-change,
More strangely than the dew,
To God’s own angels new,”
The Grave said to the Rose.

Rose is the Queen of oils

 

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

 
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it ware ten thousand mile.

Nobody knows this little Rose by Emily Dickinson

 
Nobody knows this little Rose —
It might a pilgrim be
Did I not take it from the ways
And lift it up to thee.
Only a Bee will miss it —
Only a Butterfly,
Hastening from far journey —
On its breast to lie —
Only a Bird will wonder —
Only a Breeze will sigh —
Ah Little Rose — how easy
For such as thee to die!

Stanzas to the Rose by Mary Darby Robinson
 
 
SWEET PICTURE of Life’s chequer’d hour!
Ah, wherefore droop thy blushing head?
Tell me, oh tell me, hap’less flow’r,
Is it because thy charms are fled?
Come, gentle ROSE, and learn from me
A lesson of Philosophy.

Thy scented buds, LIFE’S joys disclose;
They strew our paths with magic sweets;
Where many a thorn like thine, fair ROSE,
Full oft the weary wand’rer meets;
And when he sees thy charms depart,
He feels thy thorn within his heart.

When Morn’s bright torch illum’d the sky,
Vainly thy flaunting buds display’d
Enamell’d leaves of crimson die,
Ill-fated blossoms doom’d to fade;
So ’tis with BEAUTY, hapless flow’r,
Its lustre blooms but for an hour.

Come blushing ROSE, and on my breast
Recline thy gentle head, and die;
Thy scatter’d leaves shall there be press’d,
Bath’d with a tear from PITY’S eye;
There shall thy balmy sweets impart
An essence grateful to my heart.

Thus SYMPATHY, with lenient pow’r,
Shall bid thy fading charms bestow
Soft odours for life’s happy hour,
Kind, healing balsam for its woe!
If such thy virtues, ROSE DIVINE!
OH ! MAY THY ENVIED FATE BE MINE

Strength – A New Botanical Perfume by banks botanicals

Hello natural beauties!. Strength! Sometimes we have it and can give it to someone who really needs it, and other times we are desperately searching for it. It’s time to introduce the next botanical perfume, strength, from my perfume range called REVELATION. The 10 all-natural organic botanical perfumes correspond with my book of the same name. Each perfume represents a “Revelation Formula” from one of the ten chapters on essential oils. Immortality is about an holistic approach to living your life in creativity.

From the Health chapter in my book, I have created strength the botanical perfume.

strength 9ml roll-on bottle

“Health is not a condition of matter, but of mind.”

Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science Church

In this chapter of my book I look at using all the essential oils available to you to instil a great healthy body and mind. Essential oils can stimulate a return to good health by giving you their stunning, aromatic energy. However it is important to remember that trying to “cure” a disease or disorder with an essential oil wont work, so tap into the healing energy of the universe and your body with essential oils and see what you can create.

Adding your intention to the potion or blend you create for your health and strength, will amplify the healing benefits of the oil and if that all seems too hard, get strength in a bottle from my online shop.

” Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude  to the whole cosmos – the trees, the clouds, everything.

Thich Nhat Hanh, monk, author, speaker

strength 1ml sample

 

The strength formula combines happiness oils and some of the essential oils I have listed in the Health chapter of my book. All my perfumes are hand-made, organic, vegan, jojoba oil based.

strength opens with a bright orange smiley splash, underscored with the intoxicating floral fragrance of jasmine. Indian sandalwood and cardamom offer a deep creamy baseline that lingers through the spaces of your cells, bringing a sense of strength and softness. A drop of lavender whispers the song of solidarity to your soul.

Be strong. Leap to amazing new heights.

Ingredients: essential oils of *sweet orange, *jasmine, jasmine absolute, Indian sandalwood, lavender and *cardamom in  *jojoba. *certified organic. 

1ml sample    $22 AUD

9ml roll-on     $187 AUD

The star of late summer is always the murraya, sometimes known as orange jessamine.  There’s no stopping this tree from blooming the intoxicating scent of deep jasmine mixed with gardenia and a little spice thrown in for good measure.

I never want to live without it – just like this bee!

 

 

And look at all the petals on the ground! So delicious, its a treat to walk outside.

Thanks again dear ones and remember to appreciate the little things in life, like scented flowers, you will remember these moments fondly in the end.

Essential Oils and Numerology for 2017

Happy New Year natural beauties! I’m sending you good vibes for a great year where we can come together to create the new world we really want. Here are some essential oils for the numerology of 2017, followed by essential oils for your individual cycle year. Let’s go!

2017!

2017!

 

Ok people the numerology of this year, 2017, is 1.

1 is the number of new beginnings.

1 is the number of new ideas.

1 is the number of simplicity.

1 is the number of creation.

What do you want to create this year? Have a good think about over the next week or two and as Deepak Chopra says “plant the seeds” of your desires.

The challenge over the next year or two is to NOT dig up the seeds to see if they have starting sprouting. Trust the universe is at work, the seed is under the ground getting nutrients and multiplying cells, so in 2018 you may start to see the signs of your planting.

Don’t question “why hasn’t my desire been fulfilled? Why am I not seeing results?  Patience is required – trust and patience and a steadfast belief in your self!

 

plant your ideas and desires - then wait!

plant your ideas and desires – then wait!

 


 

The Oil Blend for 2107

 

Lemon – refresh and reload

– clean away the dribs and drabs from last year to start again fresh

 

Rose    – self nurturing and self-care, love

– open your heart to discover what your desires truly are

 

Frankincense  – the essence of truth

– look within and follow the truth of the universe which resides within you

 


 

numbers - which one are you this year?

numbers – which one are you this year?

 

What is your Cycle Year in Numerology for 2017?

Your personal cycle year will also have an effect on how you progress so it’s a matter of taking this into consideration first. Then incorporate the energy of the number 1,  our year of 2017.

Add your birth day, birth month and then 2017 to find your cycle year for 2017. Keep adding until you get a single number eg

21st June

2 + 1 + 6 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7

= 19

1 + 9

= 10

1 + 0

= 1

Your cycle year is a 1.

Your result will be from 1 to 9

Here are my oil recommendations for each cycle year in 2017.

 

1  Petitgrain – potentiality – plant new ideas

2  Patchouli  – peace, grounding – be patient and peaceful

3  Geranium – happiness, cheeriness – start to see things manifesting in your life

4  Lavender – solidarity – start forming solid foundations

5  Sandalwood – spirituality – balance of freedom and discipline

6  Basil – expansion – go forward and expand your mind and yourself

7 Bergamot – reap the fruits of your labour, be happy and relaxed

8 Cedarwood Virginian – enjoy the abundance all around you

Cypressconnect with the divine, release your past, enjoy the moment

 


Angel vibes

Best wishes for a great year whatever you’re doing, whatever your cycle year is and above all go with peace. Spread good will. Help the world evolve.

We need you!

I’m sending angel vibes to everyone.

Remember to treat yourself first, then everyone will benefit.

Ode to Juniper

Hello natural beauties, I’ve missed you. Today I salute juniper; the bush, the berry, and the essential oil. I have been known to walk into a bar and ask for a juniper and tonic, (accidentally). I find myself going through periods of time when I just can’t get enough of this amazing oil. Let us give some love to juniper  …

The fire. The odor of burning juniper is the sweetest fragrance on the face of the earth, in my honest judgment;

I doubt if all the smoking censers of Dante’s paradise could equal it. One breath of juniper smoke, like the perfume of sagebrush after rain, evokes in magical catalysis, like certain music, the space and light and clarity and piercing strangeness of the American West.

Long may it burn.”                                                                                

Desert Solitaire “,  Edward Abbey

 


“Summertime, oh, summertime, pattern of life indelible, the fade-proof lake, the woods unshatterable, the pasture with the sweetfern and the juniper forever and ever . . .

E.B. White

“He was at ease in his skin, at ease in his shoes, which were cut out of the same doeskin as his gloves; his foot in its elastic prison could stretch, could bend, could feel itself alive. His beaver hat was pulled down over his eyes & kept out the landscape; he was smoking dried juniper, after the Algerian fashion, in a little clay pipe & letting his thoughts wander at their will …”                                            

Lacfadio’s Adventures“, André Gide

“Probably one of the earliest incenses used by Mediterranean Witches. Its berries were used with thyme in Druid and grove incenses for visions.”

Paul Kendall

 


“Juniper

spontaneous lightness

I’ve always used juniper to release negative energy, watery emotions. When you can let go of emotions and energy that do not serve your highest good, it is easier to find a more positive vibe. Juniper is an oil that tends to trigger the action of spontaneous lightness”

“Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils”, Suzanne R Banks

The Crown Chakra Opens with Lavender

Visible light enriches our world by its lovely colours, and helps heal us with different vibrations. The crown chakra, or Samsrara, depicted by the thousand-petalled lotus, is where we receive information from the universe and open to divine consciousness. The rich violet colour associated with the crown chakra resonates at the highest vibration to make this exchange of information possible.

that come from a cold cause and that they comfort the braine very well.”

The speed of violet, faster than red at the other spectrum, allows our minds to become slightly faster so we can perhaps catch a quick glimpse of the universe in action.
