Fairy-Tale: Poetry Series

Fairy-Tale

Trit-trot, arrived him on a horse

with hair as white as snow,

Reigns pulled, he stopped in front of me

and asked Where shall I go?

Fine Prince, I say with deep respect

it is so very clear, 

Sweet Prince, I say most giddily 

You must dismount right here.

Whyfore, young maid, he said to me

must I get off my horse?

Because Dear Prince, I answered him

Your true love's here in Flor'nce.


Tis True?! the Prince exclaimed to me,

joy brimming in his eyes, 

So it is, Dear Prince,  I smiled

though much to his surprise.

Please come with me,  I said to him

I'll bring you home to her.

Most excellent! did he reply

and I saw his heart did stir.

We are here now, Sir, Your Majesty, 

to him residence unknown,

And where's my love?  he asked,

Sweet Prince, please welcome to my home.

I shut the door and turned to him

with fire in my eyes,

Oh Prince, you fool! How could 

you not have seen through my disguise!

Essential Oils for Cleaning

We all love to have a clean home, that feels warm and inviting, especially when we are expecting guests over! I love making my own products to keep my home sparkling clean, and aromatic to boot!

I think my favorite part about the whole DIY with essential oils, is that I know exactly what ingredients are in my products, and I'm not afraid to get them on my skin if I make an oopsie. With so many "green" options out there, sometimes labeling can be misleading, and also offer a variety of ingredients that you don't actually need to be putting on your countertops, it's comforting to know that I am minimizing the toxic load in our living environment on a daily basis. I am sure this is something you would like to cultivate in your living space as well. SO... with that, I will share a few of my favorite recipes with you!

A quick and easy fix is to throw a couple drops each of Lemon and Rosemary into your diffuser, 10-15 minutes before you expect company. If you are in a pinch and someone is showing up in 5 minutes, add the oils to your diffuser. It will still give of the aroma, it just won't cover the entire space before they arrive. For an even shorter time crunch, plug the diffuser into an outlet that is closest to your front door entry so it is the first thing they smell when they enter your home.

A super cool ingredient that I have recently added to my all purpose spray, is actually a PB Assist+ capsule. Yes! A probiotic! I have been doing some reading about cleaning with probiotics and I figured I would give it a go, with the best probiotic I know about! PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule. It delivers 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) that encourage friendly bacterial growth*.

When you aren't adding this amazing ingredient to your all purpose spray, here are the benefits of internal consumption of PB Assist:

PB Assist

  • Promotes a positive balance and proliferation of beneficial bacteria*

  • Maintains healthy intestinal microflora balance*

  • Supports healthy functioning of the digestive and immune systems*

  • Supports the health of the GI tract, particularly the intestines and colon*

  • Helps support optimal metabolism and absorption of food*

The Rose: Poetry Series

The Rose

Each Petal slowly tumbles

until the last one remains

alone and cold, with no others

to add to it’s beauty.

The ground swallows the petals

and slowly demolishes the wonder

that was created over time.


Lovely white petals shrink

and shrivel

just as dreams being shattered

eroding away.

Before they began to wither

they were beautiful, each softly

colored petal painted with dew

when dawn awoke.

The aroma was so fresh, so sweet

that even the hummingbirds wanted a taste.

But that is all over now, the thorny bush is all that 

remains, 

the butterflies and birds come no more,

the last petal has fallen. 

Cleanse your Space: Spells & Magic Series

There are SO many ways we can cleanse our space!

The first thing that may come to mind, might be white sage, palo santo, or heck… legitimately cleaning your house!

Don’t go grabbing anything just yet, before we get to cleansing, let’s talk about Sage & Palo Santo. They are amazing. They are the OG’s os space cleansing… but they aren’t the only option. To be honest, we can totally overdo it with our sage and palo santo… it’s even becoming a problem for harvesting when it comes to sage. SO! Let’s talk about other ways that YOU can cleanse your space.

Essential Oils

It's no secret that Essential Oils have an effect on your mood, disposition, and emotions. Essential oils are able to quickly absorb into the body, and its bloodstream, to support the body on a cellular level. You are created to function as a whole.

The spirit, mind, and body are inseparably connected, communicating at a cellular level. Your body is made of intelligent cells, wired to restore health. In addition to that, emotions are information-carrying molecules that bind to and react with cell receptors. They go into the cell, impacting function and behavior. For this reason, I'm so grateful to be able to utilize them while I'm meditating and saying my affirmations. You can also incorporate essential oils into your actual cleaning routine, and of course diffuse them in different areas of your home.

Here are just a handful of essential oils that you can use to cleanse your space, both physically and energetically.

  • Lemon Essential Oil: Very supportive to releasing toxic and negative emotions, by assisting the body in entering in a cleansing state. Lemon helps to purify the body.

  • Melaleuca Essential Oil: Is also very helpful in releasing and clearing out negative energetic baggage. This oil can help you set healthy energetic boundaries, and honor your personal space.

  • Cedarwood Essential Oil: Powerful on the mind and heart. Wonderful to use when you are looking to reconnect with yourself, and discover your inner peace.

  • Lavender Essential Oil: Can help you feel more protected, capable, set healthy boundaries, independence, and reinforce your inner strength. It also helps you to cut off unhealthy relationships you may be hanging on to.

Crystals

Most of the time we think about how we can cleanse our crystals, but sometimes we forget that our Crystals can help with the cleansing! Add these crystals to your living space, take them with you when you travel, or add them to a cleaning spray with your oils while you are cleaning your home!

  • Selenite: Selenite is a self cleansing crystal, and is amazing for cleansing other crystals, spaces, and (surprise!) even you! This is a wonderful crystal to wear or carry with you. Do not add this beauty to a cleaning spray, as the water will denigrate the crystal.

  • Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is arguably one of the most well known crystals, and one of the most powerful. Connected to both the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, it uplifts your energy, reminding you of your true divine essence. Quartz helps you let go of that stagnant energy, and is a perfect addition to any oil roller blend, room spray, or cleaning spray.

  • Black Tourmaline: Speaking of stagnant energy, look no further than the superstar that is Black Tourmaline! Black Tourmaline transmutes, and cleanses negative energy, and is a must have! Not only is it incredibly grounding, it can help protect you from the crazy EMF’s that are produced by your electronics!

Basics

The basics might seem boring, but they aren’t any less powerful or effective than the other methods of cleansing. Sometimes stripping things down to the basics instead of having an elaborate ritual, can feel even more empowering.

  • Salt: One of the simplest and oldest traditions is to make a circle of salt around the perimeter of your home, and/or sprinkle it on the floor. If you sprinkle on the floor, you sweep the house and all the salt to one door and sweep the salt (and negativity) right out the door!

  • Herbs: Another great option is to create a sweeping blend of herbs to cleanse your space of negativity. Exactly the same steps as with the Salt, but you choose your own magical herbs.

  • Windows: You can always go super basic and open up all the windows in your home for an hour or more, to let in fresh air and fresh energy.

At the end of the day, I'd encourage you to shoot for the moon and try everything. See what really resonates with you, and move forward with that. You are doing yourself a huge favor by letting go of negativity. You deserve to live a life full of joy and positive vibes... and that starts today! Cleanse away!

New Moon: Aries

Ahhhh a new season! This Aries New Moon welcomes another journey for the moon through the Zodiac!

“I want to rekindle the inner fire that is burning in you. I want it to come out to take away the darkness.” 
― Debasish Mridha

It’s basically time to shout “Happy New Year” to the moon, as we are feeling refreshed, energized, and filled with the fiery energy that Aries brings to the table. Tap into your passion and let go of anything that feels stagnant, or is holding you back. Most important in this cycle… let go of that perfectionistic attitude dear.

New Moon must haves for me in this cycle:⠀

And here is an essential oil blend you can add to your diffuser or make a roller bottle/spray to enjoy the energy this moon offers you! Enjoy!⠀

What are you feeling excited about? Maybe take some time while you’re using your new blend today, to write out a joy list… think of all the things that are currently lighting you up, and the things that you know you’d like to call into your life right now. Make it so!

Darkness: Poetry Series

Darkness

I slip and slowly start to fall

into the bottomless pit

I reach for your hand, but you just stand there and 

watch me...

laughing, laughing all the way until all I see is your face at 

the top of this sea of black.

My heart wishes you were still with me

but my brain fights back, pushing

the tears down my face.

The tears fall as I fall, 

into the never ending

black

abyss

beneath me.
