The beginning of a new year brings resolutions and new habits. One of the commitments I have made to my life is to complete my herbal certification program and to experiment, experiment, experiment. For those that know me, I have curly coarse Caribbean hair. Over the years, as I age wisely (insert snicker smile here), my hair has not been feeling its healthiest. I have had years of hair straightening, blow drying, hot ironing, trying to go natural and I am guilty for not getting frequent hair cuts. In my herbal studies, I am looking at herbs with a different lens. Initially I used herbs in my body care product line and now I am seeing it as a source of nutrient food, nourishing teas and hair treatments.
I embarked on a classic recipe from the Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health book from Storey Publishing 2008. The recipe calls for Calendula Flower (Calendula officinales), Nettle Leaf (Urtica dioica) & Marsh Mallow Root (Althacea officinalis).
Here is what I did to create my personal infusion.
As defined by Merriam-Webster (1) quick and ready insight (2) immediate apprehension or cognition. We all have it, some of us use it, some of us acknowledge it but many of us have lost our ability to "listen to our gut".
As a little girl my intuition was pretty strong but as I got older, it seemed to fade. It probably more of me not using it effectively but it was always there.
The last couple of years, I have embraced it and allowed my intuition to develop and flow. This past summer I presented a workshop at the Old Sage Apothecarian Gathering in Syracuse, NY on essential oils and the chakras. In the midst of my presentation something said to me to offer one on one consults to those who wanted a personalized essential oil spray. I went with my intuition and it was the most incredible experience ever.
I had the pleasure of meeting the woman on a personal level. They shared with me their fears, their happiness, their sadness. Some cried, some laughed and some just were in awe of our connection. It really was incredible and I knew right there and then I had a gift. A gift that is meant to be shared and the ability to create a personalized essential oil formula for them to walk away with is incredible. I am now offering 1:1 consultations for either 30 minutes or 60 minutes. You will walk away with a personalized essential oil plan of action and products to use to assist in your journey.
I thank you for trusting in me and please don't hesitate to reach out.
