This is the time of year that I have to be pretty careful with myself. I find myself getting overwhelmed with too much holiday preparation (I own a toy store), and I tend to stretch myself a bit too thin. It is just in my nature to give most of myself to others (as I know is also the case for many of you) so I find it pretty important to have some White Angelica on my shoulders whenever possible. When I forget, I can tell. I made a vow with myself to protect myself this fall/winter so that I can be the best protector to Simon and Gus possible. I also made a pact with myself while walking through Greenough Park this morning to SLOW DOWN. I race through my day - cramming things into every single open second - wasting no time and I think I need to start wasting a little bit of time. So, after I fell down on our walk this morning, with Gus on my back in the Ergo, we stopped to watch the leaves fall for a bit. I needed to stop for a little recoup of my aching knee, but I also needed to stop to just watch the freakin' leaves fall. It was pretty incredible, they were like gigantic yellow snowflakes. We just stood, collected the leaves we saw fall, rescued a few that were stuck , and just had a few calm minutes to 'be'.
I smelled this oil before I decided I wanted it and smelling it was what made me decide I had to have it! I saved up my Essential Rewards points and got it for myself - it was my first rewards "cash in." The oil is a blend of several oils - Bergamot, geranium, myrrh, sandalwood, rosewood, ylang ylang, spruce, hyssop, melissa and rose in a base of almond oil. There is something soothing and magical about this oil. I don't mean to sound hokey but it really has been an amazing oil for me. It is very uplifting. It is a calming oil. It makes me feel better when I'm feeling down.
I use this oil to protect me from negative energy. This oil encourages feelings of protection and security. It combines oils used during ancient times to enhance the body's aura, which brings about a sense of strength and endurance.
White Angelica is for topical or aromatic use. Diffuse or wear on top of shoulders, along spine, on crown of head, wrists, behind ears and on the back of the neck. Excellent in a bath.
I tend to take the scientific route, usually, when I'm presenting my 'oil of the month' but this oil is one I will be using like crazy the next couple of months so I thought it would be a good one to share. I wish you could smell it through the computer...I bet you'd put it on your wish list!
It is only the special few that I share a drop or two with, but if you want one, or maybe you need one, I'll get one or two or maybe even three to you. Retail this oil is $72.04. Wholesale it is $54.75.
Happy Fall! Happy November!
