Someone recently asked why the sudden craze with essential oils ~ truth be told, I have been a fragrance fanatic all my life … starting from when I was a little girl. I think I inherited it from my Mom. She would mix perfumes and she always came up smelling like a rose. We often had discussions of my dream to some day have my own perfume boutique. I found a fragrance store in NY that was a replica of what I had envisioned. On my return from a vacation, she and I were going to visit the store. Unfortunately, while on that vacation, Mom passed and I never revisited the idea again.
So the years have gone by and I have ventured into several different companies ~ some were good, some were not so good, and others were great. In a recent conversation with Jon, he questioned why I had never become involved with fragrances. He has witnessed my passion and it just never came to fruition … until now.
As I got older, perfume was becoming very sensitive to my sinuses and they would flare up ~ although I still wear perfume, on a very limited basis, I switched to essential oils. Additionally, I felt the oils were a good addition to my Coaching Practice, since aromatherapy offers clarity, stress relief, abundance, helps my sinuses and ties in nicely with my Practice.
Because essential oils have many holistic uses, and can be worn for dermal (on the skin) application, I am adding my own personal line. I have just completed the process and placed my order for 100% natural, high grade essential oils. I will be starting off with a small selection: “Abundance“, “Clarity” and “Lavender“. Abundance and Clarity are blends and all the details will be shortly available on my website. 🙂
The essential oils line will be called “Gliding With Glo“.
My Mom would be so proud! Since making this decision I have felt a feeling of “Abundance” and “Clarity” within myself … that I pursued a long lost dream and took action.
Reflecting on this decision makes it very clear to me that my Mom continues to influence me. She, along with my Higher Power are my “silent” partners and will continue to guide my journey. I often say, “My life is none of my business; He has a Plan for me.” Well, today I can certainly say that it all is, in fact, starting to make scents.
Do you have a forgotten dream? Has it been placed on a back shelf? Life is way too short to not live our dreams, our passions. Follow your dream!
