Essential oils have been used for thousands of years as a way of dispelling the feelings often associated with sadness.

These recipes can be used anytime of the year when you are feeling alone and sad.

Inhale My Blues Away
Do you need to lift your mood quickly! A few drops of Wild Orange or Lime will have you feeling great in no time. Not a fan of citrus oils, try Lavender. The properties in these oils induce good feelings and restorative components. This easy blend is good to keep on hand for quick use and before you know it, you feel energized and happy. Wild Orange is one of my favorite oils and the combination with Lime is just yummy. Also try a drop of each in your water and drink your blues away!

1 drop Wild Orange

Place 1 to 2 drops of Wild Orange or Lime essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub hands together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth and inhale the aroma deeply. This send the properties into your olfactory system and takes effect immediately. You can enjoy this 3-4 times a day or as needed.

Follow instructions for your diffuser.

1 drop Jasmine

This bath blend will get rid of negativity and ring some light into your life, spirit and heart. These essential oils are known to bring peace and happiness to those who use them! You can use any combination or just a single oil in the bath. Set your intention to be calm and let all negativity go to the light for healing. Relax, breath and take this time for yourself.

Place all oils in a tablespoon of carrier oil and add to the warm bath water. Do not add the oils when the water is super hot. For young children or elderly adults you can add a tablespoon of milk.
Be careful getting out of the tub, dry your feet first as they may be oily from the oils.

5 drops Vetiver
5 drops Jasmine
3 cups of salt (Epsom, Himalayan, sea salt or salt of your choice
1/2 oz carrier oil (recommended Fractionated coconut oil)

Leave the mixture in the dark areas and let it sit for 24 hours. Use as desired, store the remainder in a glass jar or months. These also make great gift.

February 2020 Full Snow Moon Ritual

Traditionally, the Moon we see in February is called the Snow Moon due to the typically heavy snowfall of February. On average, February is the USA’s snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service. 

February 9th, 2020 brings a Full Moon. The Sun in Aquarius is a time for self-expression. Expression of affection builds bridges. It warms hearts. It can even change lives. When the Moon is moving through Leo, you will have a stronger desire to let others know how you feel. You’ll be more apt to tell people that you love them, or express your appreciation for them. Being honest and vulnerable is about as brave, beautiful, awe-inspiring, confident, and cool as it gets.

February’s Full Snow Moon rises on the night of February 8 and peaks in the early hours of February 9.

The February Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Snow Moon because the heaviest snows usually fell during this time of the year. The Snow Moon name dates back to the Native Americans during Colonial times when the Moon was a way of tracking the seasons.  

This Snow Full Moon comes to clear away the darkness within. Leo is ruled by the sun, which makes this Full Moon extra special. It will light your inner fire and remind you that life is for living and experiencing new things, failing, learning, succeeding not controlling. 

Allow space for yourself during this time and enjoy the transition of letting of things that no longer sever you of your heart, body, mind and out of your life! It is time for releasing!

This Full Moon will give you a boost of self-esteem and positive energy.

The February Full Moon is a time to connect to our higher selves. It is a time to connect to our own inner self, the core of who we are. Enjoy this month’s Ritual. 

Full Moon Ritual
This ritual is best done from February 8th-21th, 2020

This is your time, utilize this Full Moon as an excuse to make time for yourself and to reflect upon the vibes you emanate to the rest of the world. The Full Moon is also a time to be quiet, to find your peace, to let go. Take a deep breath and forgive others. You are actually doing it for yourself. Be kind, and you will always have peace.
