My friend Rebecca sent this quote to me..
The unknowable path
…might also be the right one.
The fact that your path is unknowable may be precisely why it’s the right path.
The alternative, which is following the well-lit path, offers little in the way of magic.
If you choose to make art, you are no longer following. You are making.
Isn’t that lovely. And that is how I often feel when I think about my life pursuing Aromatherapy. It feels quite unknown and yet there is magic in this amazing journey. I just finished an Aromatherapy Intensive Class where I learned more about these powerful plant extracts – from how to use them for emotional releases to a technique developed by Young LIving called “Raindrop technique”. I will soon write more about the Raindrop in another blog.
I also learned about the chemistry about essential oils, which was fascinating. This is coming from someone who could not wait to drop chemistry when I finished high school. I was captivated by how much knowledge of chemistry is needed to learn how to properly distill and when to exactly stop the distillation process. Learning about what exactly essential oils do when they enter our blood stream and how they work with our body’s natural intelligence to heal was absolutely mind blowing. I promise to write another blog on the chemistry of essential oils soon as well.
Finally, it made me grateful for Young Living products as they put so much effort into making sure each batch is the best. A small variation can alter the final product so much that it can go from being helpful to harmful and even fatal. This is why I stress the importance of researching essential oils and making sure they are not adulterated and absolutely safe to use (apply to skin, breathe and safe to ingest).
If you want to learn more about the class or Aromatherapy, visit CARE. They are an independent organization that teaches Aromatherapy. Thanks for joining me in this Unknown Path….
