Happy Holidays December 2017

Happy Holidays December 2017

The season of giving, joy and celebration is in full swing and with our best wishes we’re also sending a little simplicity this month. In the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations we hope you’ll take some time to stop, reflect and remember the real reasons we celebrate.

December’s a season of hope…here’s hoping your holiday is the absolute best! Read on for Authentically amazing DIY gift ideas for the home and body, and aromatherapy suggestions for the spirit and soul. One of the most beautiful, symbolic and simple ways to spruce up for the holidays is to bring the outside in. 

Use found objects and nature’s gifts along with beautiful blends of essential oils to make your home a holiday haven of relaxation, warmth and love. 

Scented Pine Cone Fire Starters
Suggested Ingredients
pine cones
twine
large saucepan and glass measuring cup
cooking oil
dish cloth
favorite essential oils (we recommend Pine Needle, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Eucalyptus and Organic Orange)
candle wax beads (white beeswax or paraffin)
various containers to hold individual pine cones
Directions
Add water to saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Pour wax beads into the glass measuring cup and add essential oils. (Use ¾ cup wax and 5-8 drops of Authentic Essential Oil per pine cone.) Place the filled measuring cup in the saucepan and allow to heat, melting wax for use.

Wrap twine around and through the base of each pine cone multiple times. Leave an inch or more of twine loose to create a long wick at the bottom.

Generously apply cooking oil to the inside of each container with a dish cloth. Place one pinecone in each, allowing the wick to lie outside the bowl. When the wax has fully melted, slowly fill the various containers to create a base of at least ¾ inch. Allow to dry. After 5 to 10 minutes, pull each pine cone from the container with a slow twisting motion. Trim the wick as needed.

BATH AND BODY - FIT FOR A KING


The Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus often includes the story of wise men bringing him gifts of Frankincense, gold and Myrrh. In ancient times Frankincense was used to treat illnesses and was revered for its anointing and healing powers. It was more valuable than gold.
In modern times many still revere Frankincense for its spiritual nature (read on for a wonderful meditation blend featuring it), and it’s widely embraced for its benefits for the skin. Add a few drops of this incredible oil to our personal care recipes as a gift to yourself (and to others) this special season.

PEACEFUL WAY OF MIND

The concept of practicing “mindfulness” is gaining in popularity – and for good reason . We’re so busy, so hurried and so stressed we often wind up “missing” the very lifestyle we work so hard to cultivate. Being “mindful” is being fully present and more aware of where we are and what we’re doing. To be mindful forces us to stop reacting, stressing and feeling overwhelmed, and to simply just “be”.
More so now than ever, the stress of the holidays can push us out of mindfulness and into mayhem. If you feel the pull of being harried (or just want to add a special touch to your regular mindful or meditation routine) try these special, seasonal essential oil blends. 


Centering Meditation Blend

Topical: Add 10 drops Organic Frankincense and 5 drops Organic Orange to 4 oz. of carrier oil. Mix and apply to the back of the neck, earlobes and perfume points on the wrists during meditation.
Aromatic: Mix 15 – 20 drops Organic Frankincense and 10 drops Organic Orange in an empty amber bottle. Inhale directly from the bottle or from cupped hands at regular intervals throughout the day. Add 10 to 15 drops into a diffuser and diffuse.


Holiday Diffuser Delights

All-natural inspiration for a simple yet sensational holiday season.
20 drops Peppermint + 10 drops Organic Ylang Ylang
15 drops Pine Needle + 10 drops Bergamot + 5 drops Clove Bud
20 drops REFUGE Calming Blend + 5 drops Cinnamon Leaf + 5 drops Organic Orange
