Tools for Happiness

Simple Tools to Help with Happiness in Tough Situations
Essential Oils, River Stones and a Quiet Space

Happiness is just a breath away. With a strong self awareness a simple deep breath is very powerful.  It can help us center ourselves quickly and nearly effortlessly.  It’s so simple, but so hard to remember to do when we are nervous, afraid or stressed out.  Do you freeze, become overly defensive, or panicked in situations that are uncomfortable or hurtful? In these moments we only have ourselves to tackle the situation. The following simple daily practice with essential oils, river stones and quietness can help you to remember to be at ease, strong and confident in uncomfortable situations.

Being at ease, calm, confident and strong comes from an inner knowing that nothing can be so difficult that it cannot be solved in an amicable, loving, and intelligent, non-aggressive manner. When you are happy, love your life and love yourself,  you will be more able to transform fear, nervousness, and frustration into intelligent ways of dealing with the situation, immediately in the moment when it happens. The exercise below can help. When you are happy, you can handle anything in life better. Make it a habit to breath away  mind chatter, and inhale calmness and happiness, so you can feel strong and empowered to not only tackle situations but also to make the best out them.

  • Prepare a foot bath in a quiet place in your home
  • Add two river stones
  • Add one drop of essential oil (see below)
  •  Soak your feet and breath evenly for 15 minutes letting your thoughts wander, not thinking about your thoughts.
  • Just breath and listen to the sounds of your home

Do this practice daily until you notice that uncomfortable situations are no longer creating inner turmoil.

So, now what essential oils should you choose for your foot bath? That is a bit trickier. But here are a few suggestions.

 

Lavender is always good to have on hand. It is best to use when you feel nervous and have a slight headache.

Bergamot is always uplifting. Use when you are unfocused, irritated, mentally and emotionally exhausted.

Cedar Wood is a beautiful oil to have on hand to become more grounded and present. Use it when you feel physically worn out, feel afraid and insecure.

These are just a few essential oils that can help you to induce happiness within you through dissipating fear, nervousness, and stress. There are many more essential oils and you may need a different  oil that is compatible to  your personal needs. Feel free to contact me, so we can find the essential oil that serves you best.

Love your Life

Your life is sacred and has everything you need to find love, happiness and abundance. Love, happiness and abundance can be found and activated if you feel, see, hear, smell and taste how sacred your life really is.

We all want to experience true love and true happiness. This universal desire motivates us to search for love. Where is it? The simplest answer is most often dismissed. It cannot be so easy, we think, and therefore we miss the source of love and happiness. So where is it? 

If you want to find out, come to the workshop. If you have been having a hard time finding love and happiness in life than come to the workshop and see what can open up for you.

The five week workshop will help show you the sacred and loving spaces in your life. We will use the guidelines from the Radiant Heart to open our hearts to loving ourselves, loving life and bringing love into life.

I will not say more than this, so that the expectations of the mind do not cloud the potential of what can be activated from your heart! I look forward to seeing you there!

Radiant Heart Essential Oil

Radiant_Heart_Summer_2015It always starts in the middle of the night with the overpowering scent that I can barely tolerate. It comes to me, it calls to me, it speaks to me in my dreams. I wonder if it effected the other women that made the Radiant Heart before me in the same way. This is the way it always begins. The scent and the imagery almost haunt me until the blend has been mixed.

I am so fortunate to make this essential oil available to you. Sacredness, mysticism and tradition are all combined in the making of this sacred oil. Twice a year rich aromas awaken me in the middle of the night.  Dreams follow to guide me through the process of combining essential oils, drop by drop till a whole batch is made. I love the time around the Radiant Heart. The energy of love is so strong,  evident, humbling and inspiring, all at the same time. There is so much more to life than we normally experience.  During the times of making the Radiant Heart, the harshness of everyday life is more evident. Yet, instead of getting disillusioned  or afraid, my heart gets stronger to stay in the silence of the Radiant Heart energy, and see how life responds with loving and effective solutions.  Something in the thought and feeling process changes and instead of being afraid, nervous, or threatened, I see solutions and possibilities, and I am able to communicate with strength and compassion. It is truly magical how chaos mystically calms,  people that are really irritated, quickly calm down, listen and instead of fighting are open to a fruitful discussion. It is magical how people open in an instant. The fact that this is possible shows the sacred quality of the Radiant Heart Essential Oil.

Again, I would like to thank all of you who are participating with the Radiant Heart. You are an integral part of  the bi-annual celebration. Every time this sacred essential oil is made, it gives us more insight into how to live our lives from the heart, having love, truth, respect and freedom as our guides and our authorities. The message of the Radiant Heart throughout the centuries is consistently the same. The Radiant Heart shows us the essence of unconditional love. It also helps us leave stress, fear and nervousness behind and wake up to the calm, creative and innovative part of ourselves that naturally and freely expresses love and compassion.

This year the Radiant Heart 2015 can help us open our hearts to our own lives, help us rethink how we live, and help us realize what is truly important to us. It is never too late to wake up from wherever we are in  our lives, good or bad, and begin to live our lives with love, compassion, freedom and truth as our authorities. All of our lives are  meaningful and precious, as the life we have right now is the only life we have. We are important as we are part of the whole, effecting and contributing to our own lives, our families, friends, the community and society at large. Once we feel how precious life is, we begin to naturally interact with others in a more loving, compassionate and respectful way.

Initially, especially in difficult situations, it may not be easy to follow the guidelines of love, truth, respect and freedom  When life does become difficult, the Radiant Heart can step in and help, so we are able to respond  to negative events in our lives in calm, forward thinking and loving ways. Using the Radiant Heart Essential Oil teaches us how to respond appropriately, as it activates a deep inner silence within us, from where we can draw wisdom and understanding. Once wisdom and understanding is ignited, we are able to cut through  fears, aggression, and violence. We all have this very powerful energy within us that can be awakened. Once we feel this empowering energy, we will be able to integrate it into our everyday lives.

Here is how to start using the Radiant Heart to activate the incredible energy within you. Inhale the Radiant Heart blend though the nose from the bottle once for 1 to 2 seconds.  Next, repeat the following three sentences 9 times each in sequence just before you go to sleep at night.

  • I love my life
  • I love to share my life
  • I am ready to bring love to life

The Radiant Heart Summer 15 Essential Oil is available now in a very limited quantity. If you are interested in the Radiant Heart blend please call me at 310.699.7743.

 

Beauty and Health Wednesday

Beauty_Health_Wednesday_July_8_15Wednesday evenings at Scentsible Life are dedicated to taking time out of our busy schedule to stop, relax, have a little fun and take care of ourselves. It has quickly become part of our regular lives, and we are seeing the benefits of our weekly rituals. We have noticed that we have more energy throughout the week and we are not as tired when the weekend rolls around. Another benefit is our skin is looking much healthier. We are really enjoying it and we encourage you to participate with us. As we often state, in our busy lives, it is vitally important to dedicate time to relax, nurture and pamper ourselves. Beauty treatments combined with relaxation are a great way to release stress, allow mind chatter to dissipate and boost the immune system.

Let’s begin our Wednesday Ritual:

Tonight, when you get home, pause outside of your door and wait until you feel calm before you enter.

Here is a simple breathing technique which may help you:
Sit or stand in front of your home, close your eyes, paying attention to your breath.
Slowly change your breath and count 9 on the inhale, hold your breath to the count of 9 and then exhale on the count of 9.

Do this breathing exercise till you feel calm and you are no longer thinking about your day and all other mind chatter has dissipated.This exercise can sometimes take five minutes or longer.

Be patient, it is worth it! Once you have done this, you have already brought relaxation to your body 🙂

When you are calm, enter your home feeling how great it is to come back to your own sanctuary, where you can be yourself, where there are no demands and no obligations.

Now get your skin care products and a “quiet time” space ready. Maybe you want to eat before you start this regimen tonight. Or you may prepare a meal that you can enjoy during the ritual. Allow yourself to make the ritual your own.

I recommend starting with a shower so the water can act as an additional helper to wash away the stresses of the day. When you are ready, cleanse your face and body with the Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder. Afterward, step out of the shower and apply the facial mask.

Sit quietly in your dedicated area, close your eyes and enjoy the quietness in your home. Appreciate your home and feel how it provides you with safety and nurturing. Relax and let the mask stay on your face for at least 20 minutes before you rinse it off.

Next, apply the Facial Oil with gentle circular movements. Finish up with a spritz of Hydrotone. Pat the moisture into the skin. That’s it! A few simple steps to feel relaxed and refreshed. Enjoy!

Here are the recipes:

For the shower: Salt Body Scrub

  • 2 Tbsp Salt from the salt flats in Argentina
  • 2 Tbsp Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Uruguay
  • 2 drops of Scentsible Life Ruby Red Grapefruit Essential Oil

  • 1 tsp Scentsible Life Facial Mask
  • 1 Tbsp. Yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp. Aloe Vera Gel
  • 1 drop Scentsible Life Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Scentsible Life Lavender Essential Oil

Tonight, when you return home from a wonderful day, take  time to sit quietly in your favorite place in your home before you start your evening. Be creative with your quiet time. Maybe you want to do a short meditation in your garden, walk through your home with a feeling of appreciation in your heart, or just sit in your favorite place, closing your eyes and let your thoughts wander.

After your quiet time prepare your beauty recipes, and your space where you can sit back and relax, while you soak in the foot bath.

Now begin your regimen. Step into the shower, bringing with you the salt scrub mixture. Let the water run over you for a few minutes, washing away thoughts and feelings about your day, so that your mind and energy can refresh. Then begin to massage the salt scrub mixture into your body from the legs upward. Take your time. It feels wonderful to gently exfoliate your skin. Thoroughly rinse off the salt scrub.

After the shower, continue with cleansing your face with the Scentsible Life Cleansing Powder. Today, before you put on your mask, you give yourself an additional steam inhalation. Boil water in a sauce pan, add the salt and the Tea Tree essential oil. Cover your head with a towel and keep your face 2 inches away from the water, so not to burn yourself. Inhale this mixture for five minutes. Apply the facial mask and step into your foot bath with salt, olive oil and the essential oils, relaxing for at least 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, wash off the facial mask, and treat your face and feet with the Scentible Life Facial Oil massage. Finish your regimen with a spritz of the Scentsible Life Hydrotone.

Enjoy this relaxing, detoxing and rejuvenating Beauty and Health Wednesday regimen.
