Dog Chinese Horoscope in stone

 

Are you born in the Year of the Dog? You’re a winner baby, this is your year. To find out which is your animal zodiac, check out this link.

About the Dog Year

The dog is the 11th zodiac animal out of 12 so we are in the autumn stages of the cycle. To be specific this year is the year of the Brown Earth (Mountain) Dog. Next year we move into the first water sign, but for now, this is a year to look after your friends and family. Stay true and loyal to those around you, and try your best to embrace empathy and togetherness with your brothers and sisters around the world.

This is not a year to be selfish and put yourself above others, if you do it will backfire and you will not have flow and harmony in your life. This year is a good time to pay attention to your health, and you may even feel inclined to have a more conservative approach in your everyday life. The dog year is very oriented to work, and everything around it. Learning new skills and working with others are big themes this year.

This is a year of solidarity!

This is also the title of his best-selling book and is a great read if you’re interested in past lives. I thought it might be a good idea to share some of my favourite soothing calming blends for relaxation, meditation and opening your intuition by looking within.

Positivity – A New Botanical Perfume by banks botanicals

Hello natural beauties I hope you’re all well and happy and positive. It’s time to introduce the next botanical perfume, positivity, 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. Positivity is all about speaking to yourself in a kind and positive way …

From the Affirmations and Positive Self-Talk chapter in my book, I have created positivity the botanical perfume.

positivity 9ml roll-on bottle

 

“An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change.”

Louise L. Hay

 

Positive affirmations almost seem out-dated, but for someone in a bad mental or emotional space they can help to shift focus. And sometimes that’s all that is required and all that can be mustered up.

Affirmations simply help you point yourself in the right direction of where you would like to be. It is very important when using these simple linguistic tools, that you conjure your energy and emotions to meet the affirmation so you can project an wholistic state to the universe.

Using essential oils along with your affirmations can amplify them to the next level and help you feel a bit more special and happier along the way. And being kind to yourself is sooooo important and something we often forget to do.

So why not use this modern perfume to take you to a positive space?

 

“We are often our hardest critics, so loving and accepting yourself, and speaking to yourself with kindness and love is extremely important.”

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

 

positivity 1ml sample

 

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

positivity is a green, sappy, delicious fresh scent with basil leading the way. Supporting basil’s cool positivity are tangs of lemon and lemongrass, highlights of rich feminine geranium, the cedars of two continents and a secret, soft, barely there, warmth of liquorice.

Be kind to yourself and exude positive vibes.

Ingredients: essential oils of *lemon, *basil, *geranium, *mandarin, *fennel, *lemongrass, *cedarwood Atlas and cedarwood Virginian in  *jojoba. *certified organic

Fulfilment – A New Botanical Perfume by banks botanicals

From the Dharma chapter in my book, I have created fulfilment the botanical perfume.

 

fulfilment 9ml roll-on bottle

 

“As the world is rapidly changing, many people are questioning their true place and purpose in this world.

Are you? 

Some are being called to change, seek, adapt, gain knowledge, share knowledge and support a peaceful evolution of humanity.

Others are being called to act as practitioners of the healing arts.

Are you?

 

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

 

 

 

Dharma does not just refer to work, it is a sanskrit word meaning the way we live our lives, the moral and “right” way to do things, according to natural law. Our work often plays a big part of who we are but for many people their job can be dreadfully depressing because it goes against their true nature, and their higher self is driving them to break out and live!

There’s no need to restrict yourself in life, in fact we need everyone to be out there using their full potential so we CAN evolve and move to the next level of consciousness.

Are you ready? Start with this crisp tangy perfume with woody undertones to change your focus and help you with the courage you need to fully pursue the reason you are here, now.

 

“You are unique, and if that is not fulfilled, then something has been lost.”

Martha Graham,     Dancer and choreographer

 

fulfilment 1ml sample

 

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

fulfilment is a bright compelling fragrance with an unashamedly, tangy, bittersweet citrus headline. Bursts of green rosy highlights are given to you by palmarosa, layered on a rich warm foundation of spices that are dancing with cedar in a faraway forest.

You are a guiding light – embrace it.

Ingredients: essential oils of *petitgrain, *palamarosa, cedarwood Virginian, *black pepper and *cinnamon in  *jojoba. *certified organic

From the Love chapter in my book, I have created bliss the botanical perfume.

” Love is the beauty of the soul.”

Saint Augustine, 4th Century philosopher and theologian

 

bliss 9ml roll-on perfume

 

“When I was searching for the meaning of love I found it difficult to come up with a simple explanation. There’s romantic love, sexual love, familial love, the one love of the universe and the love of ourselves.”

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

 

Which oils do you use to inspire love? I’m feel most people would say rose for sure, but what else? In my book I recommend using any oil that appeals to you, and remember to use your intention to invoke your feelings through the oil.

What about love spells and love potions? I have created a gorgeous love potion perfume for you to throw in your handbag and carry everywhere. Break it out whenever you need to change your focus, to love yourself more, when you feel like being in love, and just anytime really.

Love yourself x

John Keats
