4th of July is it summer yet ?

Here in Maine we were patiently waiting for summer to arrive …  the temperatures were a tad chilly .. not hitting 70 and at night time still in the 50’s.
And then it happened. Summer full blast .. in mid 80’s today .. the flowers are finally starting to bloom, the lilacs this year were incredible .. the scent
intoxicating !! Followed by the Lupine of various colors .. the most beautiful natural flower in Maine .! And just this week .. the peonies started to open
oh the joys of gardening and the wonderful gifts of Mother Nature.!

Hello Summer

Quote:
“What good is the warmth of summer,
without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Jasmine

One of my favorite scents (well one of many) is Jasmine .. I prefer Jasmine Grandiflorum vs Jasmine Sambac.
‘Jasmine absolute is widely used in perfumery and fragrances for cosmetics and toiletries to impart unique floral scents.
In traditional holistic medicine and in aromatherapy jasmine is considered one of the most effective products to:
relieve stress, anxiety, nervous tension, depression and exhaustion. It can be used also as an antiseptic (also anti-viral)
and as an anti-inflammatory agent.’

Herbal Pharmacy - the art of herbal medicine making

Aromatherapy Workshop @ Blessed Herbs of Maine

Gail Faith Edwards invited me to give an aromatherapy workshop on Essential Oils at her Herbal Retreat here in Maine on Monday, June 27th, 2016. There were 25 attendees and my hour long workshop turned into 2 1/2 hours of questions and answers!

We gave out handouts with dilution charts and a booklet from AIA with a wonderful overview of essential oils and samples of carrier oils and 30 essential oils for them to experience. For attendees who showed a strong level of interest in essential oils, we passed around a few of my treasured books for them to look through.

Among the topics covered, we we focused strongly on safety and discussed:

  • Safety first always
  • The mantra ‘Do NO harm’
  • Less is more
  • Do not use essential oils undiluted on the skin
  • Please do not ingest

They were very receptive and had really great questions for me to answer. It was an honor to be able to give my workshop to this group and I am thankful to Gail for the invite.

If you’d like to know more about Gail and her work, we recommend her book Herbal Pharmacy: The Art of Herbal Medicine Making, which is available on her website.
