” The Body – Slow – Earthly”

Essential oils work on the physical body by being absorbed by the skin and circulated to muscle, organs and other tissues. We know this is a fact. Take into account the increasing use of skin patches for administering hormones, nicotine and other medicines. Our skin is actually an entire system known as the Integumentary System and is the largest organ in the body. Topical application on the skin is an efficient an non invasive way to get substances into the body to create change.

Our bodies can be a bit slow to respond compared to how quickly our minds seem to work. We are joined to the Earth as a giver of life and sometimes being connected to earth may be called being ‘grounded’. I feel the Earth and our bodies are intrinsically linked, energetically linked. we belong together.

 

We are linked to the earth

We are linked to the earth

 

Our body = The Earth

Essential oils,

allows us to

  • nurture our bodies with the oil of healing herbs, flowers and fruit, delighting in the gifts of nature

 

  • feel physically relaxed and fortified

 

  • open to more possibilities for self-love and kindness and the capacity to accept our bodies as vehicles of consciousness

 

  • have a sense of solidarity and grounding, so it seems easier to start creating and revealing our destiny, and true purpose in life”

“Clutter-clearing is modern day alchemy”

Denise Lin, Author

 

 

 

Clearing and cleansing your space can be fantastically liberating and freeing. Once all the extra stuff is gone, cleaning with essential oils can take reclamation to a new level. Even just cleaning with oils can make you feel lighter, as you energetically release the old negative emotions and patterns and move into a new mind space. I call it purification, and it definitely applies to your chakras and energetic body as well as your home or office.

Clear out the old, cleanse your space and body with essential oils, and protect your personal aura with intention and this gorgeous perfume I’ve created.

 

“Man flows at once to God when the channel of purity is open”

Henry David Thoreau, Poet

 

So why not flow with the energy of the universe, with a pure heart and mind?

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

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.

From the Spirituality chapter in my book, I have created oneness the botanical perfume.

” The Egyptians referred to the nose and other parts f the brain as the “pathway to the soul” and in the detailed artwork some are seen to be inhaling the enchanting fragrance of the blue lotus of the Nile. It seems as though this fragrance was able to influence their mind and thoughts to reach an altered state of consciousness, to connect with the Gods. Essential oils work in the same way…”

Suzanne R Banks “Revelation! reveal your Destiny wth Essential Oils

 

 

In this chapter I discuss the important part meditation plays in our lives. Not only does it have positive physical, mental and emotional aspects, but it also helps us improve our intuition. Essential oils can amplify our meditation and help open our intuitive capacity, and a botanical perfume based on essential oils will be the perfect companion to your spiritual practice. Throw it in your handbag for those earthly moments when you need a little help – driving, screaming kids, freaking out – and things like that.

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders”

Lao Tse

Lovely orange gives lightness and happiness while spikenard gives deepness and introspection. A drop of nutmeg in frankincense is the key to this sensual perfume.

Be at one with yourself and the world around you.

I Love Lemons!

I’ve always wondered about where this saying came from: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. In this article I’m on the hunt for its author, and ponder why the amazing lemon has such a bad wrap. It does give us nutrition, flavour, colour, and of course lemon essential oil!

**************************************************************************************************************

Well of course the easy answer is that the fruit is sour. So if life is sour to you, add sugar, reinvent the moment and prosper.

The phrase was initially coined by Christian anarchist writer Elbert Hubbard in a 1915 obituary he penned and published for dwarf actor Marshall P. Wilder.The obituary, entitled The King of Jesters, praises Wilder’s optimistic attitude and achievements in the face of his disabilities:

 

“He was a walking refutation of that dogmatic statement, Mens sana in corpore sano. His was a sound mind in an unsound body. He proved the eternal paradox of things. He cashed in on his disabilities. He picked up the lemons that Fate had sent him and started a lemonade-stand.” Wikipedia

lemon The phrase was adopted again in the 1940’s by a couple of authors and especially attributed to Dale Carnegie, in his revolutionary self-help book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, first printed in the UK in 1948.

Ok, so most people won’t eat a lemon like an orange (some do though), but its flavour is a must-have for the kitchen.

And then there’s the rind which is often overlooked, but when it’s used in a dish makes something unmistakably divine. This flavour comes from the essential oil tucked away in little pockets all through the tough skin. This essential oil can do so many wonderful things, and is a fresh happy scent that appeals to young and old alike.

Lemon essential oil is an uplifting oil with a sweet innocence about it, but don’t be fooled – it has a solid place in modern aromatherapy.

Some aromatherapists and scientific data claim lemon oil is good for:

  • stimulating the action of white blood cells
  • killing bacteria in the gut
  • soothing and lessening varicose veins
  • tonifying the circulatory system and aiding high blood pressure
  • helping the body shed excess fluids
  • decreasing cellulite
  • improving concentration
  • easing rheumatic pain & gout pain
  • stopping the flow of blood with cuts and abrasions

…… and the list continues.

And from my book “Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils”:

Lemon

 

refresh, reload

 

This gorgeous fruit and oil is a real winner for me. Even Martha Stewart commented on Oprah, that the one thing she really missed in prison, was lemons. They have a myriad of uses both with the juice, flesh and rind, but we will be focusing on the essential oil that comes from the rind. When I think lemon oil I think, “refresh”, “reload” like the refresh button on your computer. Aromatherapists use this oil for a variety of purposes, but to me it means start again. This oil is often used for cleaning so in that sense it helps clear the air, clear your energy and clear your perspective. It’s the oil of fresh starts.”

2. Red for passion, but this heart has a key. Are you the keymaster ready to open someone’s heart with your love? Or are you the holder of the heart and key, not quite ready to give your love away.

JUNIPER is the oil for you, to allow you to release any negativity in your life. Release tears and fears, and cleanse your space with this beautiful oil. Juniper is light yet powerful and can help you start again with a new attitude.

4. This ornate floral heart looks like a door wreath from Victorian times and brings to mind simplicity in its form and colour. Black and white, you can see the world has good and not-so-good elements and can cope quite easily with this knowledge. You are an old soul with varied experiences and ROSE is the oil for you. You may need to soften your heart, or help those around you to see love as a positive force. You have loved and been loved but may have become slightly jaded over the years. Rose will help you treat yourself with softness and kindness and perhaps even attract a new love toward you. You tend to take on others problems, so now is the time for YOU. You are the queen. You are worthy of self love and self care. It’s ok to have a time-out and say no to other people.
