Miraculous Magnesium

Posted by Penny on August 2, 2017 at 8:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I just can't get enough of the miraculous Magnesium! 
I researched a fair bit this week and some things interested me enough to share them. Especially magnesium cream!
Did you know,

"Magnesium is also used for treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cystic fibrosis, alcoholism, mania, recovery after surgery, leg cramps at night and during pregnancy, diabetes, kidney stones, migraine headaches, a long-term pain condition called complex regional pain syndrome, weak bones (osteoporosis), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), altitude sickness, urinary incontinence, a condition that causes burning pain and redness called erythromelalgia, restless leg syndrome, asthma, hayfever, multiple sclerosis, and for preventing hearing loss and cancer."

Like Wow! and thats not all!

"Chronic Colitis is improved due to the 'laxative properties of Magnesium. However what I found was regularity for the first time in decades. Constipation was no longer a debilitating and painful condition. Just from rubbing some lotion on my arms everyday, apart from my skin being plump and glowing, my energy levels are changing. I'm sleeping better and legs arent twitching anymore. I RARELY get headaches now but 2 years ago it was so common I would go 5 days with a headache, morning and night. My mood is better too, now I think of it. I could ramble on for hours, but just know this...IT WORKS MIRACLES

Wherever I apply it becomes numb in minutes! Just what I need for my lower back pain. How did I ever live without it?  Damn AMAZING!!!!"

P.A (Fibromyalgia, Chronic pain, neck and back injury)

How does it work?

Magnesium is required for the proper growth and maintenance of bones. Magnesium is also required for the proper function of nerves, muscles, and many other parts of the body. In the stomach, magnesium helps neutralize stomach acid and moves stools through the intestine.


CHAKRA BALANCING SOAP

Posted by Penny on July 18, 2017 at 3:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Today I'm making a special kind of soap. It has all the usual amazing healing oils and herbs but this one is something new to try. Natural Healing oils, herbal infusions, ground herbs, coconut based glycerin, the best of everything.

This soap is balancing, regulates sebum, evens out combination skin issues, brightens and tones the complexion. Nourishing and deeply healing ingredients.



I believe you will choose whichever one you need at the time, more of one or two colours that are proportioanlly more dominant. You will see it, touch it, smell it, feel it every day (unless youre a stinky goat) and because I will bless it, love it carefully, hand make it with kind and sensitive energy, it will bring you the best for your highest good at that time.

When I allow my intuition some freedom, I'm always amazed and excited by the results! What's more important though is what it can do for you, not only energy wise but for your skin and health. I use the best natural healing oils available and in percentages that really make a noticable improvement to skin hydration. The difference between any two bars of soap are unlikely, unless one of them cheated. :o!!!
 My recipes are unique and mine. When I started ruining tonnes of soap, I joined a soapers group for ideas and guidance. After that, I just continually made each one constantly- happy about the awesome ingredients within, better than the rest!

It is just not COST EFFECTIVE and that's what sets Aromatic Essentials apart from other Bath and Body Soap shops around. My passion lies in creating the best almost over the edge blend of oils (3,900kg per batch actually). There are no oils contained that do nothing for you healthwise.

I am excited, knowing these are the best soaps you're going to find. The search is over! 

I use 50% Olive, then Coconut Oil, Castor oil, Rice Bran oil, Coco butter, Shea butter and Vitamin E. With amounts like 10% Hemp seed oil at the same price as one with palm oil and olive oil and Sunflower/ Soy/ Safflower or another cheap and perhaps nasty alternative, you can be sure People over Profit is in abundance here. No shortcuts or greed however, I have recently learned a very difficult lesson in "Get it in writing" and I'm still bloody naive.


It was 2013 I re-birthed Aromatic Essentials, and this is the second time since then that someone has ordered hundred/s of products, weeks of me getting rare sleep, working too hard because I'm doing it mostly alone, trying to please, maxing out the credit card, making batch after batch, without -

  1. Making a written agreement when over 3, 000 is concerned
  2. and getting some payment if not all, up front.
  3. Stop trusting people you naive woman!
    I'm not doing this a third time, months of struggle to recoup finances so I can buy my bottles and jars, and vital ingredients, becaused I used everything I had on the ingredients in those bottles they ordered and then didnt pay for. One was a scumbag scammer, the other, my friend. 
  4. Get up stand up, dont be a doormat, maintain integrity, philosophy and 


Each oil brings a much desired quality like improves skin tone, balances sebum, reduces wrinkles-not just the appearance either. Hemp Seed oil for instance, is the most perfectly akin to our own skin so absorbtion rate is instant and highly effective, they all contain vitamins, minerals, ultimate skin nutrients, as well as give the bar its beautiful properties. Coconut and Castor oils produce lots and lots of bubbles too. Cocoa butter makes the bar hard, other oils make it moistuising, creamy, soft...you get the drift. That's why I use 7 of natures truly amazing gifts as the base for every bar of soap made here.


Always natural, always vegan,always handmade with love and good intention<3

I borrowed this info  from http://www.mindvalleyacademy.com/blog/spirit/chakra-colors

To give me a quick refresher on Chakra Energy Centres and why this soap is sensational. It has all the 7 colours and I've never made soap with that many colours so it will be a challenge. Often when soaping, the mix gets solid pretty quick so I have to work lightening fast, not conductive with evenly spaced coloured stripes. in fact, sometimes when you see hills or nice curves in soap, it is because it had to be spooned in! So it will be the furthest thing from neat and tidy. Soap is very temperamental, half science, half luck!

What are the Chakras?

First, we’re going to give you a quick crash course on the chakras. There’s a lot to learn about chakras (seriously… volumes and volumes and books worth), but we’re just going to give you the very basics to get you started.

Chakras are the seats of energy in your body that start at the base of your spine and travel all the way up and out the top of your head.

These 7 energy centers pulse and vibrate all the time, and they help you live a full and meaningful life.

You may have heard that energy can’t be created or destroyed.

So, your chakras contain universal energy that’s always been around. This energy gets divided up in your body and is constantly growing, shrinking and moving. As it does so, your inspiration, motivation and focus shifts.

Shifts in the energy of your chakras cause your thoughts, feelings, moods, perceptions and subsequently, your actions, to change. These shifts can also attract circumstances and events into your life.

For example, a shift in the energy of your sacral chakra (the 2nd one below your belly button), can make you think about and seek out pleasure, but it can also attract opportunities for pleasure into your life.

How Energy Moves in Your Chakras

 

Your life is full and complex, so it’s understandable that you will want to shift your energy and focus throughout different times of the day. You can use the energy in your chakras to do this. Shifting the energy in your chakras is also helpful when your focus has been pointed in one direction for a long time.

You may have been focused on making money or mending a broken heart.

These extended periods of focus drain your energy centers.

It can be helpful to think of your energy in more practical terms. Try to imagine that you have a gallon jug of water and 7 glasses that you want to equally fill. After you’ve poured an equal amount of water into each glass, you decide that one of the glasses needs a little more water.

With no water left in the gallon jug, what do you do?

You take water from the other glasses.

This is what happens when you shift the energy in your chakras. The more energy you need in one direction of your life, the less energy you will have for the other parts.

There will always be times in your life where you need to shift energy and focus.

It’s totally ok, and the great thing is - you’ve got all the energy you need.

But when you do shift your energy, it’s important to recognize it and re-balance it when the work is done.

There are many ways to shift and balance the energy in your chakras. From guided meditations to using crystals and sound, there are plenty of effective methods.

However, understanding the colors of the chakras can actually help you choose the most effective method for your situation.

Vibrations and the Color Spectrum

 

To understand the chakra colors, you first have to understand color in general.

The 7 chakras follow a specific color pattern - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet - but, why?

You may be familiar with that pattern because of the rainbow. In fact, many children learn the colors of the rainbow using the famous acronym ROY G. BIV.

So what do the chakras and the rainbow have in common?

Well, they demonstrate the entire visible color spectrum. In other words, both the chakras and rainbows contain every possible color that we can see as humans.

When you think of the chakras, instead of thinking of a red energy center, an orange energy center and so on, think of an entire spectrum of color that starts at the base of your spine and goes out the top of your head.

The colors blend together, just as they do in a rainbow. The individual chakras are centered in specific parts of your body, but they radiate out and blend together with the chakras on either side.

What is Color?

The science behind color is pretty complicated, so we aren’t going to get into specifics, but the basics are important to understand.

Color is actually part of light. Light is made up of vibrating energy. This energy vibrates at different speeds, and all of the energy put together creates the color spectrum.

 

Think of light like a musical chord made up of 7 notes.

The reason the chord sounds beautiful is because each of those 7 notes has a different sound.

Light is made up of a spectrum of colors vibrating at different speeds. If you were to play one of the notes individually, you’d hear one sound. If you look at one part of the spectrum of light, you see one color.

Again, it’s way more complicated than the simple explanation we’re giving, but all you need to understand is that color is simply energy vibrating at different speeds.

If you imagine the color spectrum as a line, starting with red on the left and violet on the right, you would be looking at the lowest vibrations on the left moving toward the highest vibrations on the right.

You may have heard people talk about “raising your vibration.”

Now that you understand how color vibrates, you can begin to think of the energy in your body as vibrating at different speeds. The lower your vibration, the lower in your body the energy is placed, the higher the vibration, the higher the energy sits in your body.

People talk about “raising their vibration” because they want to open up and energize the spiritual energy centers of the body near the top of the head - the crown and third eye chakras, which vibrate at an indigo and purple color.

Color Psychology

So, let’s review.

Color is energy vibrating at certain speeds.

Lower vibrations produce warmer colors like reds and oranges, while higher vibrations produce cooler colors like blues and indigo. At the highest vibration, the two ends of the color spectrum meet together and produce violet.

Your chakras sit on a color spectrum inside your body, with the lowest vibrations at the bottom of your spine, to the highest vibrations at the top of your head.

Now that you understand these color vibrations, let’s talk a little bit about how these colors affect you. This line of thinking is called color psychology, and we don’t realize it, but colors affect our thoughts and emotions all the time.

When you think about vibrations and the chakras, this all starts to make sense!

Since the energy of the individual chakras is there to help you focus on specific parts of your life, and each of your chakras vibrate at a certain speed, therefore producing a certain color, it stands to reason that seeing certain colors would influence that energy.

Of course, we see lots of color all the time, so color psychology doesn’t mean that every single color we see will have an effect on us.

Instead, it’s really all about your focus.

When you focus on a specific color, or it’s overwhelmingly in your field of vision, this can influence your energy vibrations.

The energy in your chakras will vibrate and align with that color."

YAY! Certified Cruelty Free

Posted by Penny on August 25, 2014 at 11:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Finally!

I applied for cruelty free status some months ago. It was not an easy process at all. Getting my suppliers sorted who were cruelty free meant getting proof and waiting on them to provide the necesary documents. The rules had changed also since I was first given the application form 12 months earlier. My own fault for taking so long to apply, made a mess of things, but in the end it was all finished, suppliers statements submitted and then just waiting to hear back.
On the 18th of August 2014 Aromatic Essentials was granted Cruelty Free status!

This means that no ingredients used in any Aromatic Essentials products have been tested on animals, by myself or by any of my suppliers or their suppliers.

:)

One for the animals!
