Never be afraid to try something new if it speaks to your heart ~

This morning I tried Aerial yoga for the first time and loved it! It was like being a child again. It was a little scary at times hanging upside down while being held by fabric hanging from the ceiling. But among other things, it was a lesson in trusting in myself and my abilities. There was an inner knowing that I would catch my own self should I fall. I was able to let go of the earth for a while and those things that can weigh me down at times. This made me feel both empowered and vulnerable all at the same time, much like a child does. And at the end of the class, lying suspended in air, wrapped in the strong soft cocoon of fabric and listening to classical music playing I was transported back to before... Fear... Misunderstanding... Hurt... Judgement and all those other things that hold us back from truly living as as our own authentic selves... I was an embryo awaiting birth into the next moment. As Always and In always... Be You... Live You... Love You.

Beauty~Fall

My niece Erika posted a picture online this morning that made me really miss experiencing the spectacular colors of Autumn. Growing up in Ohio I have always loved this time of year! I call it "Sweater Weather!" The air is crisp and clean and feels so refreshing and new after coming off the humidity of summers in Cincinnati. Though living on a small island in the Caribbean is a beautiful thing (which is where I've lived mostly for the past 17 years). We do not get the in your face beauty of seasonal change like those of you in other parts of the world. You have to truly tune into the subtle feeling inside to remember sometimes that the seasons are changing here. But Nature is such a beautiful thing! And she is a constant reminder of change and the beauty that can come along with it if we are open enough to accept it... see it for what it is... GROWTH! Let the beauty of this season as well as the beauty in All seasons remind us to embrace change which is the only true constant in life. As Always and in All Ways... Be You ... Do You... Love You!

Forever in Lavender Love!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love me some essential oils? Well... I love me some essential oils! And one of my favorites in case you don't know me is... drum roll... LAVENDER!! More and more I am so blown away by the benefits of this particular oil! Just a little while ago, I was taking something out of the oven and burned the tip of my thumb... Ouch! It hurt like a mug! Anyway, I quickly and instinctively... as I do more and more these days... thought about trying one of my essentials to see it will help in whatever I'm going through... In this case help to stop my thumb from hurting ...like a mug :) Let me tell you. I ran to the bathroom... for real ya'll I ran! I dabbed a small amount, not even a full drop on the tip of my thumb. And within 30 seconds, guess what?? The pain went away... Almost instantly! Do I need to say my love affair with lavender is alive and well? And my thumb no longer hurts like a mug! Listen, I don't know (yes I do) what that term means (hurting like a "mug") It's just a carry over from my neighborhood... Sigh...you figure it out! At any rate... don't sleep on the essential oils... Well actually that is another one of lavender oils benefits... It relaxes you and helps you to fall asleep! But that aside, give essentials a try... you wont be disappointed. Until next time, Be You... Do You... Love You!

Natural vs Chemical

There are so many products that we may be using... products that are touted as antibacterial... that may in fact be causing more harm in the long run, than good. Not to mention...we have become a society of quick fixes. We want everything right now! And if we don't see positive results instantaneously... then we say that whatever it was didn't work for us and we move on to the next "quick fix".

Although we can probably never be free of all harmful chemicals, we can be informed and try to minimize some of the potential risks' that we are bombarded with on a daily basis.
We can reduce some of those risks' by researching and learning more about natural alternatives to products that although may be ingrained in us as the thing to use because... well that's what our parents may have used or it's just what we're used to reaching for it in the local drugstore or grocery isle... (name brand recognition does work!). 

While some natural remedies and or ingredients may not give you the quickest solution... given the chance they may be just what was needed and without the adverse side effects. That's not to say that we should not be cautious when using natural herbs, essential oils and the likes. Sometimes we may be sensitive to certain plants and essences. It's important to learn your body and those things that it may have a sensitivity to. the key is being aware!

Here's a great article about the dangers of chemicals used today in "antibacterial" personal care and hygiene products. Products which have been reported as toxic to the human body...

'Perhaps the most toxic is one named triclosan. Triclosan is a controversial chemical linked to hormonal disruption and various types of cancer....' To read more click on the following link.

Lavender Rosemary Shampoo

Now you know I love all things lavender and definitely don't mind giving credit where it's due. All that being said... Here is a recipe on this blog

http://babydustdiaries.com/2012/01/lavender-rosemary-shampoo-recipe/

for Lavender Rosemary Shampoo... I will definitely be giving this a try!


Ingredients:

  • dried lavender flowers 2 heaping tablespoons-full (more or less is fine)
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary or 2 tablespoons dried rosemary (fresh really works better if you can find it)
  • 2 cups Boiling water
  • 1 cup Pure liquid castile soap
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil
  • 10+ drops lavender essential oil
  • funnel
  • stainer
  • old shampoo bottle washed out well

How to:

  1. place lavender and torn up rosemary (stems and all just roughly torn to release the oils) in a large mug or bowl
  2. Boil your water as if you were going to make tea.  Pour over lavender and rosemary and allow to steep for 30 minutes
  3. In the meantime, combine 1 c castile soap (I used lavender because that’s what I had on hand but unscented is fine) with 1 Tbls grapeseed oil and 10 or more drops of lavender essential oil
  4. Pour via funnel into your shampoo bottle.
  5. After steeping, strain still warm lavender/rosemary tea into the bottle via funnel.
  6. Shake up and allow to cool completely before use

To use:

  1. squirt directly onto your scalp (it is very runny) and work into a lather.
  2. rinse and enjoy the scent!
You can also use this a s a body wash... Yummy! I can't wait to try it... I'm sure it smalls divine!

As Always...

We Are Born to Inspire

I am constantly amazed by the strength of  people that I know and even those whom I meet briefly along the way. The things that we go through on a daily basis, be they small annoyances or major life quaking events, all shape us individually.  But the way in which we carry ourselves through life's challenges have the ability to inspire those around us in ways that we may never know... and that too also amazes me. The thought that our actions, be they negative or positive may touch someone and we never have the opportunity of knowing.
The strength of this realization hits me at times and almost makes me light headed with its weight. It grounds me in the knowing that I am not an island! What I do and say... my reactions to whatever I encounter carry great responsibility and also great consequence.

We all are Essential. It is as the subtitle of this blog states... the definition of  Essential:  Constituting or being part of the essence of something; inherent. Let us remember that we are all members of the same body. We all have the ability to inspire. We are born to create and inspire creativity in others. It is not only about creating that which is physical but also the intangible... We inspire thought and action... a new way of Being as well as Doing. Inspiration is the spark that lights the flame of thought. Creativity is thought in motion. Let us re~member this in every moment. 


As Always,
Be You... Live You... Love you!

Essential of the Day... Clary Sage




Countries of Origin: America, England, France, Morocco, Russia.



Characteristics: It has sweet, musky, herbaceous top notes and nutty almost floral undertones. It blends well with citruses, and also with lavender, coriander, cardamom, frankincense, jasmine, pine, geranium, cedarwood palmarosa.  



Main Therapeutic Properties: Anti-convulsive, anti-depressive, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, astringent, carminative, digestive, sedative, and numerous others.



According to The Aromatherapy Bible by Gill Farrer-Halls..."Clary sage is the most euphoric of the essential oils, and it can produce an almost drug like narcotic "high". Combined with it's pronounced antidepressant qualities, this euphoria makes it a powerful aid to easing depression, melancholia, anxiety, stress and chronic general dissatisfaction. Overall, Clary sage is intoxicating, sensuous and uplifting.  

Trust me, I can attest to the above statements truth! Just the other night I inhaled a mixture of Clary sage and Rosemary before I went to bed(Rosemary is supposed to aid in meditation and clearing the mind... More about Rosemary in a later post.) Not more than a minute with my eyes closed did I begin to feel really relaxed! And then in the next minute... Well...Let me say... between you and me... I felt something in places that I will not mention here. Needless to say... I am a believer! 


One of the most valuable essential oils for treating menstrual cramps, clary sage in baths or hot compresses on the abdomen relaxes mind and body, eases pain and it's estrogenic action helps to bring on and regulate menstruation.

Clary sage also helps to treat menopausal symptoms, and can be used, in childbirth in a massage oil during early labor. It is an aphrodisiac, especially good for those who are so stressed that their sexuality has diminished." (What I tell you!)


It is said that it also relieves asthma when massaged over the chest and back, and added to shampoo or massaged into the scalp, it can prevent dandruff and balance sebum levels... beneficial to all skin and hair types. It can also reduce excessive sweating when used in a foot bath or bath. 


Gill-Farrer goes on to write: "Psychologically, clary sage is deeply relaxing, euphoric and revitalizing. Used in small quantities, it is a useful aid in meditation, and facilitates dream work by encouraging powerful and vivid dreams. Clary sage helps strengthen subtle energies and divine inspiration."  


Contraindications: Avoid throughout pregnancy. Do not use before or after drinking alcohol.



Who needs Viagra and whatever that other artificial female stimulant when you can take a few whiffs of Clary Sage to get your Mojo back? ;) 

As Always, Be You... Live You... Love You!

Essential of the Day... Frankincense



The rich, woodsy smell of frankincense always takes me back to when I was a child and had to attend mass at my catholic elementary school church. Although I'm no longer a practicing catholic or prescribe to any other organized religion for that matter, the smell of frankincense will probably always summon for me, memories of the ritual of mass, especially at Christmas or funerals. I always felt the smell was one the evoked a sense of mystery and wonder.

Lately, as I research different essential oils and their many benefits I am learning that the tranquil and contemplative feelings I was having at that time and still do at the smell of frankincense are very valid.

According to Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit ~ Restoring Emotional and Mental Balance with Essential Oils by Gabriel Mojay:


Frankincense played a role in the religious and domestic life of ancient Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Hebrew, Greek and Roman civilizations. It has been perhaps the most important aromatic incense ingredient since history began. This is reflected in the fact that it's English name is derived from the medieval French word franc, meaning "pure" or "free", and the Latin incensium, "to smoke".

As for frankincense's healing properties..."Frankincense oil's most important sphere of action must be the nervous system. Here it's ability to relax yet revitalize make it excellent for treating both nervous tension and nervous exhaustion. It soothes the flow of stagnant Qi~energy whenever an accumulation of stress has led to irritability, restlessness and insomnia. As a mild tonic, it can also help to uplift, and so it is an important anti-depressive essential oil."

It is also helpful for bronchitis and asthma and relieves tightness in the chest and a has a host of other uses. It is said to have profound psychological and spiritual benefits... relieves mental agitation and worry, distraction or feelings of being overwhelmed.

Now tell me who doesn't at least get overwhelmed at some time during a work week... Guess who'll be ordering more frankincense?

As Always... Be You... Live You... Love You!

Amel Larrieux - Get Up

Time To Get Up Ya'll! When ya gon get up?

Essential of the Day... Lavender

Lavender: (Lavandula vera, Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula officinalis)

http://www.jarrodcastaing.com




Taken from: The Aromatherapy Bible written by Gill Farrer Halls


Decription: Lavender is a perennial, bushy shrub with silver, gray or green linear leaves and purple, violet flowers. The essential oil is steam-distilled from the flowering tips.

Countries of Origin: France, Bulgaria, England, Morocco, Australia, Hungary, Spain, Tasmania.


Characteristics: Lavender has clean, fresh floral top notes and subtle green herbaceous undertones. It blends well with most other essential oils, especially other florals, citruces and herbs.

Main Therapeutic Properties: Analgesic, antidepressant, antiseptic, antiviral, cytophylactic, decongestant, deodorant, emmenagogue, hypotensive, nervine, sedative, tonic....

(WHEW!!! That was a mouthful! I don't even know what some of those words mean but will definitely be looking them up.)

"Lavender is by far the most popular, versatile and widely used of all the essential oils." ~ Gill Farrer Halls.

I love lavender! It is by far one of my favorite essentials and I use it almost daily. I also include it in all my products. It has a soothing, calming relaxing effect that balances ( and you know I love that word!) and normalizes the body functions and emotions. It's cure-all reputation has stood for thousands of years!

It is used in massage and bath oils for muscle aches and pain. A drop or two your pillow can relax and help with insomnia. It is also used for treating colds and flu. It counteracts the viruses causing the infection and also relieves many symptoms brought on by the cold or flu.

Mr. Farrer Hall also writes... "Psychologically,lavender is soothing, balancing and calming, helping with mood swings, depression and PMS. It's calming, relaxing effect can be used to facilitate meditation. Lavender's balancing qualities can restore harmony to the aura and help to balance the chakras."
I concur!! Not to mention the calming effect it has on your skin when used in facial cleansers and tonics! I use it with a mixture of camomile tea and distilled water as a toner after cleansing my face.

So next time you're having problems catching some z's feeling a bit overwhelmed, battling PMS, you're feeling off balanced or you feel a cold, the flu or even a headache coming on before you reach for a bottle of pills, try using some pure lavender essential oil first. It's even good for repelling insects and relieves the sting from their bites! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Contraindications: avoid in early pregnancies, especially if there is a history of miscarriages.

Are You the Central Character in Your Life?

The feeling of living behind a mask often springs from a disturbance in one's early relationship with anger. The most threatening of emotions, anger between child and parent is also inevitable, because no parent can fulfill all of a child's needs. A famous child psychoanalyst, the late D. W. Winnicott, said that a parent's job is to neither retaliate nor abandon the child in the face of the child's anger. The parent's duty, he would say, is simply to survive that anger. There will always be frustration or disappointment in relationships. Parents who can allow a child to hate them temporarily, who can survive that hatred and return love, are bestowing the greatest of gifts. When a parent is too needy, however—because of depression, loneliness, overwork, unhappiness, alcoholism, selfishness, intolerance, insecurity or a host of other factors—a child will instinctively put the parent's needs ahead of her own. In creating a false front to manage parental demands, the child puts a mask into place—a mask that soon hardens into a shell. Instead of learning that anger is tolerable, the "as if" person learns only to maintain the connection at all costs. And the costs are high; something wonderful is lost when that naturally occurring anger is suppressed. Spirit becomes impoverished. Whole aspects of the self are vaporized.

Finding Balance in Truth...

Taken from The Moon Woman
You can check her out on facebook at the link below.

The Moon enters Libra on 5th April 2012 @ 3.33 pm GMT, opposite the mid-point of Mercury and Uranus. Here we see the Moon of relationship and balance in negotiation with new and profound truths that disrupt balance and rock the status quo. It can be an uncomfortable mix, but this is a strong Moon who can hold her own when she needs to. Yes, balance is important, but so is the truth, and over the next couple of days the Moon wants us to encounter both. The challenge lies in knowing where to establish balance and how to honour the truth. Often we look outside of ourselves, seeking to create balance out there, to protect our sometimes fragile inner worlds. But the truth can get left out of this equation, as we suppress it in favour of a version of reality that feels less threatening to the status quo. But now the Moon asks us to find balance within ourselves in order to be able to honour the truth, no matter what. The day after entering Libra she will be full and bright, bathing us in her silvery wisdom. So no matter how challenging the prospect of embracing and embodying the truth may feel, she tells us that now’s a good time to start. She’s right there with us, lighting the path. ‘Seek balance within’, she tells us, ‘and all else will fall into right relationship with the universe’.

Balance... Walking The Tight Rope

Sometimes life seems to be pulling us from left to right and we often find it hard to stay centered. We feel torn between being in our "current" reality and the one we truly long for. We want only to feel comfortable in our own skin... To not have to go out into a world where we sometimes have to wear mask's in order to make it in a society that wants us to tow the line, look a certain way, speak a certain way, act a certain way, etc...

I know that I, on more than one occasion have struggled with this very feeling. I at times just want to say, "the heck with this job", or whatever the situation may be. But for whatever reason I find it is not the best possible time for me to bow out in that moment.
In these times I often feel anxious, tense and irritable. I find it hard to focus and I become impatient in my own process and with processes of those around me.

But eventually an intuitive feeling starts to stir in more core. It is often accompanied by an actual physical sensation. The muscles that wrap around my waist, abdomen and back that keep my center upright, are listening to that intuitive voice inside. The intuitive and physical are telling me that it is time for me to stop the struggle and listen. They are telling me to take stock of my posture...Pull it together! Am I even breathing properly?

I soften the muscles in my face, pull my head out of my shoulders, close my eyes and take a long deep breath. As I exhale I visualize the tension, the uncertainty and doubt slowly leaving my mind, my body, my being.

I regain my balance and return to my tightrope walk with the nimbleness of a Prima ballerina. I continue along a path that, though may be a little wobbly at the moment will eventually lead me to exactly where I need to be. And in this moment... it is the only reality I need to be in. The reality where I know it all passes, and things are not as bleak as I may sometimes envisioned them. Balance is what was needed. Listening to my higher self, using my mind to decipher the clues and allowing body to follow is what enables me to regain it.

The key to beautiful hydrated skin...


Moisture saving Shea Butter is the main ingredient in Ella Mae's Seventh Child's Hair and Body Butters. But did you know that Shea butter is actually a great sealant? That's why I recommend using Number 7 Essentials Be Well Oil after showering or shampooing but BEFORE Using the Shea Body Butter! Using Shea Butters before moisturizing may make certain skin and hair types more vulnerable to dryness because it's harder for moisture to penetrate it.








My regimen once or twice a week:
*Cleanse
*Exfoliate
*Moisturize
*Seal


After showering exfoliate using a liberal amount of On~Nee Raw Honey Body Scrub to the entire body paying close attention to areas of concern... elbows, knees and heels of the feet. Rinse remaining scrub away under warm water. You will feel the jojoba and essential oils on the skin but this is okay! Most of the oils will penetrate into the skin while you're toweling off.

Apply a small amount of 7 Essentials Be Well Oil while skin is still warm, slightly damp and pores are wider from the steam of your shower, this allows greater absorption. Massage excess into skin.

When needed, use a small amount of Ella Mae's Seventh Child's Body Butter in the palm of your hand. Rub hands together to warm and soften the Shea butter. The heat of your hands also releases the therapeutic aroma and benefits of the essential oils in all three products.
The Shea butter helps to seal in the moisture and beneficial essential oils. You'll love the way your skin looks and feels!

I recommend this regimen once or twice a week before getting into bed. Honestly, you may not always need the Shea butter. The oils in the On~Nee Raw Honey Scrub and the 7 Essentials Be Well Oil may be all that's needed, especially in the warmer months when the skins sebum production is higher.

If you are one of my au`natural diva's and are using the Shea Butter as a hair treatment( My relaxed diva's can use small amounts of Ella Mae's Hair and Body Butters and 7 Essential Oil on your hair too!) I also recommend using the 7 Essential Oil before applying a small amount of Butter to your hair. Again, this seals in moisture and the beneficial essentials oils and a little goes a long way!


Also... A word of caution to those of you with nut allergies... Shea Butter Does come from the Karite Nut! If you are concerned you might have a reaction to any product containing Shea please test a small area of skin before using larger amounts!

As Always... Be You ... Live You... Love You!

Essentials... Constituting or being part of the essence of something; inherent.

Today is a new day! Today is also the official launching of Ella Mae's Seventh Child!... Products that are inspired by all things natural! They are products also inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of my mother Ella Mae Price.

My mother was always using natural recipes she created herself with ingredients gathered from her own kitchen! When I was a child I would watch her as she applied egg and mayonnaise to moisturize her beautiful hair or vinegar as a clarifying rinse. She would use honey and oatmeal to firm and moisturize her skin long before the whole "all natural" craze began! I am a product of that creative self sufficient entrepreneurial spirit.
The need to incorporate nature into all that I do... To deal with the stresses of daily life while striving to stay connected to mother earth flows through my blood...It is who I am!

Ella Mae's Seventh Child are all natural using unrefined butters and oils. If desired, they can also be custom made to fit you and your needs. They are made in small batches to insure quality and consistency. I use blended pure essential oils in all the products, which right now include: Ella Mae's Seventh Child Hair and Body Butters, On~Nee Organic Raw Honey Scrubs, and Number 7 Essentials Be Well Oils.

Essential... Definition: Constituting or being part of the essence of something; inherent.


In my family there are Eleven... I Am Number Seven. A part of the essence of the Whole. We all constitute the essence of the Whole. We are Essential to the Whole! Take one away and we all lack.
Thus the name Ella Mae's Seventh Child.


Be Well~
