Stones, Aromatherapy and the Chakras / part two of three
Stones, Aromatherapy and the Chakras (part one of three)
Bringing elements of the natural world into our home, workspace and daily practice, serves as a gentle reminder of our greater connection to nature, and shifts our mind from daily preoccupations to a more expansive contemplative state.
Join Susannah (Registered Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Skincare Crafter, Aromatherapist, Mamma and Ordinary Human) jamming on simple, holistic daily practices with rocks, oils and the chakras:)
Soap Making :
This is a fairly epic tutorial, however it is a true to life demo of how to make soap the old fashioned way!
Soap that has all the glycerin fully intact, takes four week to cure (at least) and you need to wear a mask, goggles & gloves....for real.
If I appear a little on edge, well, this is not the most relaxing DIY!
When this soap is ready next month I will be LOVING it:) Patience is a virtue....
Natural Skincare as Self Care
I have always viewed skincare as a form of self care. This has always been my message to my massage clients, to both my daughters, as well as the whole vision behind @WildroseMagnoliaSkincare. Daily application of nourishing forms of plant based oils; from avocado, coconut, jojoba and quality (CPTG) essential oils, is all about taking a moment to connect with yourself, your touch, your breath and dropping the “baggage” if only for a moment - FEEDING your body’s largest organ something healing rather than something toxic.
This is NOT a time for self judgment or trying to reach something unattainable that society has relentlessly presented to us in those toxin coated, perfume-y, plastic-y pages of magazines. Who gives a S&%T about attaining perfection?? Nah, girl, nah, this is something WAY deeper and YOU own it.
Creating your own natural skincare is super-easy however, we’ve got a lot of stuff on our plates, (am I right, or am I right??). Even an avid crafter like me (who know’s her S&%T) likes to have high quality, skincare products to indulge in - the following vlog is an overview of doterra skincare. XO, Susannah
Self Massage / A simple daily practive of self massage with customized essential oils to support your wellness needs does a world of good. XO, Susannah
