Sensuous Magical Essential Oils…

frankincense-compliant-micro (2)Recently I was introduced to Essential Oils and have been having lots of fun using them. They smell wonderful and also improve my connection to my Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self. So what are Essential Oils and what do you do with them?

From YoungLiving.com…

Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible. Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted.

Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals that can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, incorporated into massage, or taken internally to:

~ Inspire a Positive Emotional State

Love the way the spritz of fragrance from a fresh orange peel can brighten your day? Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates the limbic system—the brain’s center of emotion and memory—differently. Essential oils can be your key to a more fulfilling and balanced emotional life.

To help you rediscover peace, balance, and joy, use these essential oils and blends for diffusion, soothing baths, massage, inhalation, or topical application:

Joy™
Lavender
Orange
Peace & Calming™
Peppermint
Jasmine

~ Enhance Your Physical Wellness

Modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. From cleansing and weight management to supporting every system of the body, essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your best.

ART® Renewal Serum

Copaiba Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner
Boswellia Wrinkle Cream

Frankincense essential oil

~ Create deep spiritual awareness

Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants to transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. Research shows that the pure constituents in these oils stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. To enhance your spiritual practice, dilute and apply meditative, empowering essential oils directly to wrists, feet, and behind the ears, or diffuse in a quiet space. Popular essential oils and blends for spiritual focus include:

Sacred Frankincense
White Angelica™
Egyptian Gold™
Inspiration™
The Gift™

A friend let me try several of the oils and I enjoyed them  so much that I bought a Premium Starter Kit that included 11 different oils, Ninja Red samples, a really nice Diffuser and information to start your business.  I will be your Sponsor and also help you!

Click here to see Premium Starter Kit!

My overall Favorite Essential Oil so far is Frankincense

I use it to prevent wrinkles… Put a drop in the palm of your hand and then rub hands together in a counter clockwise circle and then press your hands into your face.

It smells really nice and is somehow intoxicating. I have read that Frankincense helps with meditation and connecting to your Inner Wisdom. I would have to agree that it is spiritually uplifting. It was once more valuable than gold and has been called “The Wise Man’s Cure”

I loved it so much that I ran out of it before I realized that it was gone. It really does last a long time if you use it wisely and don’t give too much of it away. lol  I’m getting ready to order more.

From YoungLiving.com

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.

  • Inhale frankincense essential oil after lunch to spiritually refocus.
  • Rub frankincense essential oil on the bottom of your feet to help alleviate nervous energy.

I love so many of the oils that I am now selling them. When you buy a Premium Starter Kit you can then sell any of the products and get a 24% discount. I do that so that I can buy even more of the Essential oils.I feel that Essential Oils are very Sensuous and they have become an additional way to stay in touch with Your Senuous Self.

Give and Get a 10 minute Massage

There is nothing better than getting a Massasge… I have been know to say this many times in my Life!  So Give and Get a 10-Minute Massage.  McMaster University researchers have shown that a ten-minute massage not only helps sore muscles, but also has an impact on inflammation-related, chronic conditions.  This is a great reason to give and get a massage.  Apparently, massage can trigger body sensors that send inflammation-reducing signals to muscle cells, and thereby reduce inflammation and speed healing.  Healing is promoted because massage tells the muscles to build more mitochondria, which are the “power stations” of the cells.  So, now there is another great reason for massage . . . not that we needed one.  

A shoulder massage is easy to give, and can be done fully clothed.  Just stand behind the person you want to massage.  Place your hand over the top of the shoulder, and gently squeeze the trapezius muscle that runs from the neck to the top of the arm.  Next, with your hands in the same position, reach down the back with your thumbs, and massage the muscles on both sides of the spine.  Move in small circles, or just reach as far as you can, and stroke the muscles up and down.  You can do this for a few minutes, and then take your thumbs and make small circular motions on both sides of the spine, as far down as you want to go.   After that, bring your hands back to the shoulders, and gently squeeze the large muscles at the top of the arm.  Then, run your hand gently down the arms to the hands, squeezing the arm gently as you go.  This works especially well if you are massaging your lover.  As you move down the arm, you can nuzzle your lover’s neck.  Ask your lover how it felt, and if he would like more.  You can start again at the neck, or see if he has any other requests.  You can also explain the information about how massage helps reduce inflammation.  

You can tell him that you feel that massage is so important that you are thinking about getting a massage every week, and you are looking for a hot massage guy to give you what you need.  Ask him if he knows anyone.  Tell him that you would be open to any kind of bartering.  Hopefully, he will catch your drift. You can be sure that he will understand what you mean if you touch him suggestively.  Tell him that you were told to pay for it, if you need to . . . but you prefer bartering.  More than likely you will also get a 10-minute massage. 

Create a Sensuous Mineral Spring Experience in Your Bathtub      

 If you’d like to go to a Mineral Spring, but just don’t have the time, you can create a similar experience in your own bathtub.  Magnesium does wonderful things to relax your muscles, soothe your skin, and help your entire nervous system feel calm and peaceful.  The most amazing thing is that you can easily turn your bathtub into a mineral spring by going to any grocery or drug store, and buying a bag of Epsom Salts.  Epsom Salts are actually magnesium sulfate. So, grab a bag of minerals, a few candles,  perhaps a glass of wine, a cup of tea, or a fruit smoothie, and enjoy a Mineral Bath in your very own personal Spa. You can also throw a few flower petals in the tub, and play some Sensuous Music if you wish.  

As you relax in your bath, imagine that you are transported to a very expensive Spa with Mineral Springs.  Next, think about the services that you would like to sign up for next . . . 
~  Hot Oil Massage  
~  Personal Yoga Instructor  
~  Acupuncture  
~  Healthy Sensuous Lunch  
~  Sensuous Massage Class  
~  Sensuous Life Coach  
~  Creative or Erotic Story Writing Class

  As you relax in your Mineral Bath, use your Creative Imagination to visualize yourself doing one of those activities.  After your bath, you can do some self-massage with hot oil, a little Yoga, make a Sensuous Lunch, and perhaps write a Sexy Story.  Whatever you do, be sure to enjoy your “Spa” experience with all of your Senses.

Sleep Naked

Sleeping Naked can make you more Sexy, Sensuous, and Healthy in several ways. Here are a few of the reasons to peel off your clothes every night before you go to bed. 
~ Your Skin . . .    Your skin will benefit by being exposed to fresh air all night. Since you will be unencumbered by clothing, you will be able to feel the sheets moving over your skin, and this improves your body awareness. As you relax, and get ready to fall asleep, you can give yourself a massage by just running your hands along the curves of your body. Explain to your Lover that you are doing a Sensuous Exercise, and becoming more in touch with your skin. If your skin feels dry, just pull back the covers, and start applying Massage Oil to your dry skin.  Massage Oil should always be within arm’s reach while you are in bed, in case someone needs an emergency massage. Close your eyes, and pay attention to how your skin feels as your apply the massage oil. Imagine that a Sensuous Massage Guy is oiling up your body. . . . You may find that your Lover will enjoy watching you, and may decide to join in.  
~ Your Sensuous Hormones . . . Melatonin and Growth Hormones . . . One of the most important things to remember when you sleep is to “Be Cool” . . . Sleeping in a dark room is essential  for increasing your Sensuous Hormones. Darkness helps your body release Melatonin, which in turn helps your body cool down while you sleep. This is important because . . . keeping your body cool promotes the release of Growth Hormones, which regenerate the body while you sleep.   According to Natasha Turner (author of the best-selling book, “The Hormone Diet”), “As your body temperature drops, Growth Hormones are released, and work their regenerative magic.” The release of these hormones keeps your skin and hair looking healthy, sensuous, and sexy.
~ Fat-Burning Hormones . . . By keeping your body cool while you sleep, you are also helping your body release Fat-Burning Hormones. When your body is cool, you sleep deeper, which in turn decreases your Cortisol level, and increases your Appetite Controlling Hormones.
~  Oxytocin . . . Another great reason to Sleep Naked is skin-to-skin contact. Skin-to-skin contact with your Lover increases Oxytocin, the feel-good hormone. Oxytocin is involved in fighting the harmful effects of cortisol, reduces blood pressure, and increases sexual response and orgasm.  
~ Your Vagina . . .  Sleeping naked lets your private parts breathe.  Okay, so your vagina won’t really be taking deep breaths, but good air flow improves it’s health and well-being.  
~ Your Lover . . .  Most men love the idea of having a naked woman in their bed. If you usually go to bed in some kind of clothing . . . it will be a fun surprise for your Lover. When you decide to Sleep Naked . . . sneak into bed without his knowing what you have planned. I’m sure that you will enjoy his response to discovering a naked woman in his bed. You may find that you spend all night long increasing your Oxytocin.

Go out in the Rain and get Wet!

wpid-Rain.jpgGo out in the Rain and get Wet! On a warm Summer night, when it’s Raining … figure out a way to get out in Rain as naked as possible. It’s especially fun if you do this when it is Raining very hard. So the next time you hear a hard Rain, run outside so you don’t miss it. (Don’t go out in a thunder and lightning storm …of course.) Once you are outside remove all remaining clothes…if possible Then, as you are standing in Nature’s Shower run your hands all over your body to enjoy how silky your skin feels covered in raindrops. After the hard Rain slows down, find a comfortable place to sit. Spend some time becoming aware of how Nature enjoys the Rain. Notice how the rain drops hit the petals of a flower or fall onto leaves and gently masssages them. Breathe in the cooler, cleaner air and feel the overall “vibe” that surrounds you. . You can almost see the plants growing as the rain washes over them. You may notice that Colors are brighter and more vibrant. When the Rain stops you may become aware of  how calm and peaceful it feels. The world seems more relaxed and pure. It’s as if the plants and flowers are relaxing after their wild Sensuous experience with the Rain. When you are finished with your wild naked experience with the Rain, run into the house and turn on a Hot Shower. Climb into the shower as soon as it’s warm or for a different Sensuous experience just get into it when you first turn it on… As the shower washes over you can feel the heat of it pouring into your body. Use your favorite body products that are fragrant with natural flower essences. Stay as long as you like enjoying your shower, then wrap yourself up in a big fluffy towel or robe. Have a hot cup of tea and sit in a Sensuous Space and make a few notes in  your journal about your Sensuous Experience. You may also want to make a note of any messages that you may have recieved from your Inner Wisdom. Be sure to take advantage of hard Rain whenever you can to enjoy another Sensuous Experience with Nature.

Until next time,

Vibrate with the Universe … Make Noise !

When you are having fun… make noise! I’m thinking of Sex and Massage as I write this because for most people noise is a natural part of expressing Sensuous and Sexual activites. The next time that you are having Sex or getting a Massage be sure to take deep breaths and let Sound happen. You may notice that you find yourself trying to control the sound or judge it. This reduces your connection to your Sensuous Self. So… Stop controlling…stop judging… Instead just feel what is going on and let the sound come out as nature intended… Ask your Lover or Massage Person how they feel about someone being noisy or loud.  In most cases I’m sure you will find that being noisy is good and preferred. It lets the other person know what you like, and what you don’t like. Feedback In the form of unsensored expression of sound is an excellent way to ask for what you want and need without saying a word. A person really enjoying themself makes Noise. I also find myself being Noisy when I eat a Sensuous meal. Some meals are just Orgasmic. If you don’t know what I mean… you will when you read my book or a future blog! There are many pleasurable activities that just make you want to let sound out. After a cold swim in a pool or a day of skiing , a hot shower can make you want to moan…so do it. Start to become aware when you censor yourself as it relates to sound.  Of course there are some occasions when you do need to hold back… and that’s understandable.  But for the most part it’s important to let sound out of your body. The vibrations of Sound can be very energizing and healing. So be Noisy whenever you can.

  Singing is also a wonderful way to be Noisy. Sing everyday. My Lover walks around the house making up songs. If you have that talent…use it. If you are shy like me, about singing, do it in the shower, in your car, at home with the stereo playing loudly… or with friends if you are feeling brave.

If singing is not your thing, you could try Chanting. Chanting is amazing with a large group of people or just by yourself. OM is the sound that the Universe vibrates to… So chant it at least 3 times or as often as you wish. To chant OM  take a deep breath and and say Ohhhhhh for most of the breath and them Mmmmm for the ending. The deeper you breathe, the longer you can stretch it out. Breathe deeply again and repeat Ohhhhhh then Mmmmmm. Do this as long as you like and remember that you are vibrating to the sound of the Universe. This is very calming and even more mystical when done with a group of people. You can feel the vibration in the air that surrounds you. The next time you are with a group of friends ask them if they’d like to try to chant the sound the Universe vibrates to… Ok they may think that you are wierd but it is an easy way to see who needs help being Noisy or getting in touch with their Sensuous Self. 😉  You could also share this concept with them and help them get healthier by freeing the Noise that may be stuck inside of them.

To improve your connection to your Sensuous Self, use Sound to connect to your world whenever possible.  And whenever you feel disconnected from the Universe take a deep breath and Ommmmm.

Until next time,
Peggy
