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.

“I judge that the flowers of lavender quilted in a cap and worne are good for all diseases of the head
that come from a cold cause and that they comfort the braine very well.”

William Turner 1551

And lavender, whose spikes of azure bloom
shall be, ere-while, in arid bundles bound
to lurk amidst the labours of her loom,and crown her kerchiefs with mickle rare perfume.”

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.

violetGo ahead, gaze deeply into a lavender flower today, and you may just heal the world.

What Does Myrrh Essential Oil Have to Do with Steve Martin?

Myrrh is a wonderful resin that is steam distilled into an essential oil. I have written about it here before “Myrrh – A Healing Resin of Old”, so check it out if you’d like some more detailed info on this incredible essential oil.

 

Myrrh is a wonderful oil to help you connect to your spirit, and heal emotional and spiritual wounds from the past. Don’t be afraid to add a drop or two yo your essential oil blend to give it a deeper dimension.

Happy blending and remember to use your intention when you are creating your formulas. See my article about intention.

Perfumery and Aromatherapy – How Do They Relate?

Gorgeous perfume bottles

Gorgeous perfume bottles

Once, a long, long time ago, in a land far, far away these two things were the same. That is, the raw ingredients used for scenting were all natural and were the same things used for healing and well-being. Mother earth provided plants, herbs and flowers to be used by really smart people to create medicines, scents and incense for rituals.

Tapputi-Belatekallim, according to Wikipedia –

“is considered to be the world’s first chemist, a perfume-maker mentioned in a cuneiform tablet from the second millennium BC in Babylonian Mesopotamia.  She used flowers, oil, and calamus along with cyperus, myrrh, and balsam. She added water then distilled and filtered several times. This is also the oldest referenced still.”

Awesome! The oldest reference to pharmacy is credited to a woman. Of course! Recently ancient perfumes have been discovered in Cyprus that have been carbon dated back 4000 years. In these samples scientists found botanicals such as herbs and spices, bergamot, almond and conifer resins. That’s interesting, and for further reading on these resins see my article “Amber – A Complicated Story”.

So anyway you get the drift. Perfume and medicine originally came from natural sources.

Now jump to 2013 where large pharmaceutical companies run the world. Companies like Monsanto and others create toxic chemicals daily that find their way into our food sources, water and the air we breathe. We have lost touch with the planet and as technology increases faster then the evolution of our souls, we have stuffed up the balance of our little place in the giant cosmos.

Modern perfumery began around the beginning of the 19th century when technology allowed chemists to synthesize aromatic compounds. The rest is history. Click on this link to discover (as an example) the toxicity of Calvin Klein Eternity for Women. This website,  Environmental Workers Group/Skin Deep  is a great database you can use to check out the ingredients of lots of skincare and fragrance items. To be fair essential oils also appear in this database but are mostly listed as safe.

Perfumes may also contains parts of essential oils that have been synthesized, like limonene, and many other constituents of oils. But with essential oils, we are using the whole oil, not fractions of it. Granted essential oils are a specific part of the plant that has been distilled rather than the whole plant, but we are on the right track when we are asking nature to support our growth. We in turn must support the planet and live in harmony with the earth.

Essential oils have an energetic resonance. They contain fundamental patterns of nature.

Perfume is created in a lab. It does not contain any part of nature.

Essential oils have information embedded within the molecules. We can use this information for healing.

Perfume is fragrance, nothing more.

The choice is yours. Always.

Perhaps you can ask yourself how you can you can support the movement back to nature. Thank you.
