Reclaim the knowledge and power.

The therapeutic properties of essential oils are not part of a new health fad, but rather a vital form of natural remedies that has been available to us since the beginning of time, yet forgotten along the way.  Now is the time to reclaim the power and responsibility of our own health and well being.

Modern living has disconnected us from the source, and despite the widespread benefits of modern medicine, our over reliance on science and chemicals has become detrimental to our health.  Essential oils support us by maintaining our health and promoting wellness so that we have less need for prescription drugs which simply manage illness.

By inviting essential oils into our home and into our lives, we are committing to act with more awareness. In setting our intention to reduce our reliance on chemicals and reducing the toxins in our lives, we are aligning with our natural selves.  As our result our innate intuition will reawaken and we will begin to hear our bodies again. 

When we take the time to listen, s/he will talk to us and tells us what s/he needs.

Everything that is created, including our individual lives, is manifested through the intention of our thoughts, actions, words and deeds. Our intentions vibrate out into the World and return to us in the form of our new personal reality.

The Power of Plants.

Essential oils are the aromatic compounds sourced from various parts of certain plants. They come from the smallest of flowers to the largest of trees and are all wholly unique in their chemical make up and complexity.

Far from being a new fad, essential oils have played an integral part in our lives for thousands of years with aromatic plants and oils used as incense and perfumes as much as for their medical properties. From the Ayurvedic system of medicine in India to well documented use in China, some of the earliest written records date back to more than 2000 BC.  There are over 600 references to essential oils in one form or another in the Bible, and over the years there have been many discoveries at archaeological sites evidencing their widespread and popular use.

Medical chemistry as we know it today, didn’t really come into play until the early 1800’s when a German apothecary’s assistant, Friedrich Serturner, discovered the raw chemical compound of opium from the poppy. With the scientific revolution of the early nineteenth century, chemists began to identify the various constituents of essential oils and over the years we have seen the shift from these natural derivatives towards synthetic copies. Nowadays the medicine we use often has very little to do with its natural origins.

There is no dispute that modern medicine has made huge advances and life-saving discoveries, but somewhere along the way we lost our intuitive sense and responsibility for our own general health and well-being.

When you enter the fragrant pharmacy a whole World of possibility is waiting for you.

Intentional Living.

What we love about essential oils is they often appear in our life to fulfill a physical need, but as we develop a relationship with them, we begin to notice how they effect our emotional and spiritual health too.

There is now a considerable amount of scientific research supporting the powerful chemical components of essential oils, but even before modern science, the antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties of essential oils have been used to ward off diseases for millennia; somewhere along the way we just lost our intuitive sense and responsibility for our own health and well-being.  It became all too easy and convenient to take a pill for a headache or indigestion without even pausing to consider whether there is a more natural alternative.

Yet there is so much wisdom to be gained from our bodies and the way we treat it; taking care over what we put into it is a powerful first step.  Working with (and understanding) nature’s medicine cabinet, one which has been well used for thousands of years, puts us back in touch with something ancient and profound.

When we get up in the morning and pause to consider what we’re going to diffuse, we are setting an intention for our day.  We are taking a moment to check in with ourselves and ask, “What am I feeling and how do I want to feel?”  The thought required to choose a particular oil, the positive intent and the purpose of the oil, creates space for us to pause and reflect.  In a World where we're often running from one thing to the next, this is a gift that can't be underestimated.

In a fragmented world where mind is severed from body, culture from planet, and the material from the spiritual, we have a deep need for systems that allow us to reclaim our wholeness.
