Magical Anti-Aging Serum with Essential Oils

I’m always looking for ways to look and feel Younger and Healthier. This is my latest “Lotion or Potion” to make my face look Younger, Healthier and more Vibrant. It is a new Anti-Aging Serum that I created yesterday as a Birthday Present for a close friend. I have been researching which Essential Oils help support Healthy Skin and there are quite a few.  I gathered together all of the ones in the photo above. If you do not have all of them… that’s ok. The ones that I recommend the most are Frankincense, Lavender, Copaiba  or Stress Away. All of those come in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit at 50% off! After you get the Premium Starter Kit all of your purchases will be 24% off forever! The other Essential Oils in  the photo you will want to add to your collection with time. The carrier oils that I used were Jojoba, Almond and Rose Hip Oils. Be sure to buy the Highest Quality Oils that you can find. For Essential Oils I will only use Young Living Essential Oils. They have farms all over the world and manage the production of high quality Organic Essential Oils from Seed to Seal. That means they choose high quality seeds, plant them and oversee all parts of growing, harvesting and making the oils. You can’t get any better than that! I mixed all of the oils in a small bowl and then poured them into little roller balls. You can use a dropper bottle or a rollerball of any size. I use little 2 ml rollerballs for presents. I give 2 of them, one for home and one to carry in your purse… in case of and Anti-Aging emergency.

All of the Oils below will help your skin in so many ways. Use your serum once or twice a day after you wash your face. You can use you favorite night cream at night or sunscreen during the day.

I learned how to Drum and Sing at Omega ~ “Goddesses Gone Wild” with Sierra Bender

20160807_085801.jpgI learned how to Drum and Sing at Omega Institute, and I met over 20 Goddess who were looking for more ways to get in touch with their Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self! The Workshop was very Physical, Spiritual, and Sensuous. It included many of my interests including Dancing, Yoga, Essential Oils, being out in Nature, connecting with other Goddesses . . . and having Fun!  I also met one really nice guy who wanted to be in our Goddess Workshop, and was invited by Sierra to join our morning Circle. He and several other beautiful spirits stopped by to join our Drumming Circle as well, and others sat nearby and listened.  Drumming and Singing was an amazing way to start each day. Sierra’s voice was Strong, Passionate, and Inspiring.  She was our leader and role model. I learned how to Drum and Sing with Passion. We all evolved toward feeling more free to show passion with each passing day … which was very appropriate for the “Goddesses Gone Wild” Workshop.

Morning hikes were very physical, and definitely helped cardio. But, I only went on one hike, due to a previous knee issue. I decided I’d rather go for a walk in the morning, so I could do the morning Yoga workout and participate in the afternoon dancing for hours. 😉

We did a Vision Quest . . .a short one, but still very powerful. We enjoyed silent time alone in the Forest for several hours. It increased my awareness of the 100 acres of woods that I call home.  I need to remember that the Woods are sacred, and I need to celebrate it by doing my Sensuous Women Workshops there.  I also want to have more Vision Quests on my own, and learn more about them. I believe that the more we can be out in Nature and feel connected to Mother Nature . . . the better.

The dancing parts of the Workshops were energetic Fun. We got to Dance with several Drummers, and an enthusiastic Journey Dance Instructor Toni Bergins . The dancing was wild and passionate. During  the next afternoon workshop, we had a Sensuous Dance Instructor Lisa Zarowitz , show us how to get in touch with our Inner Sensuous,Sexy Dancer. The Music was excellent, and the Dance moves were Fun, Funny, Sexy, and Sensuous!

During our time at the Workshop, there was a full moon, and several of us Goddesses decided to go see the moon come up over the Lake. We had a Bonfire, and Sang and Drummed and Howled at the Moon. It was a memorable experience!

full-moon.jpg.jpg

It was also nice just being at Omega Institute, and enjoying the like-minded people all around. It was a luxury having someone else create Vegetarian Meals for 6 days. The café with a deck overlooking the garden was a lovely place to hang out with friends, and eat something decadent, like chocolate chip cookies or sweet potato fries. The Lake was beautiful and peaceful, and I enjoyed kayaking one morning and singing songs I learned during the morning circle.  Aromatherapy is one of my latest passions, and it was great fun having a portion of one of the days dedicated to Essential Oils.  I believe that they are absolutely Essential for creating amazing wellness in Body, Mind, and Spirit!  One of the most bonding experiences was the Fire Ceremony on the last night. We told stories and shared thoughts and feelings. We made affirmations about many different parts of our Lives, and we Sang and Drummed. I left Omega the next day with a refreshed Spirit and with new thoughts and ideas related to my own Workshops for Sensuous Women. I also had a plan to Sing and Drum every day! And stay in touch with the wonderful Goddesses I met along the way.

Thanks, Sierra, for teaching me how to Drum and Sing . . . and for being a teacher of Women . . . helping them become “The Person They Want to Be”.

You inspired me!

I highly recommend this Workshop, “Goddesses Gone Wild ” TM  with Sierra Bender. Author of Goddess to the Core R, creator of Retreats, Boot Camp for Goddesses R, Goddess in the Bedroom R, Goddess Up! R, Goddesses Gone Wild TM, and the Sierra Bender Empowerment Method.

Sensuous Essential Oil ~ Lemon

Lemon Essential Oil is amazing.  Without a doubt it will make you more Sensuous! I drink a few drops of Lemon oil in water every day. I love to add a tsp. of tart cherry juice and a bit of stevia along with the Lemon essential oil for a sweet treat… and tart cherry juice is great for your joints.  When you drink Lemon essential oil be sure to use a glass or stainless steel container.  This is because  Lemon oil will dissolve Styrofoam and break down plastic. When you use Lemon essential oil in your diet…the Lemon oil helps you detoxify.  It helps your body get rid of petro chemicals…and who doesn’t need that. I recommend Young Living Oils if you plan to ingest essential oils because of the purity that they bring to the table. You can always email me if you have questions .

Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

img_20160205_233906004.jpgA good nights sleep is essential to being a Sensuous Woman… And for many of us Sleeping can be a challenge at times. For others it can become a Lifelong pursuit to have a great night’s sleep…

In my Book, “Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” you will find a page called “Sleep and the Sensuous Woman”  which will give you lots of suggestions of how to get better sleep.  I also shared that page approximately one year ago in this Blog… You can scroll down and find it if you want!

As we all know, sleep can be disrupted for so many reasons it would be impossible to list all of them here. But whatever the reason that you have trouble sleeping, there is one thing that you can absolutely do about it… Create A Sensuous Bedtime Routine!

Sensuous Bedtime Routines

A Sensuous Bedtime Routine can include just about anything that you want to do every night before you go to bed. Being consistent with a Bedtime Routine often helps us sleep more deeply.

A Sensuous Bath

Sensuous Essential Oils can be a great addition to any Sensuous Bedtime Routine. As often as possible I like to take a Bath with Essential Oils.  I use only Young Living Essential Oils due to .their “Seed to Seal” Promise.*

So I gather my favorite Essential Oils and choose one or two. I often grab a cup of Epsom Salts and a sprinkle of Sea Salt.  Then I use 3 -8 drops of my favorite oil or sometimes I pick 2 oils. I drop the oils onto the Epsom Salts and mix them up. Sometimes I just put the mixture into an old Jelly jar and shake. Then, in they go, into my hot bath. The scent from the oils in the hot water is very relaxing. Be sure to inhale deeply. Slow deep breathing also gets you ready for bed.

Lavender * is classic and well known for it’s sleep inducing properties. It’s also wonderful mixed with Cedarwood for a lovely night’s sleep. Be sure to use Young Living Lavender grown on their pristine Farms.

Joy** is a very Sensuous Young Living Blend that tends to bring a feeling of relaxation and romance. It includes Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Bergamot and more. And it smells wonderful.

Stress Away ** is yet another Young Living Blend that has always been one of my favorites. It is relaxing any time of day and especially calming in a hot bath. It smells yummy and contains Vanilla, Lime, Cedarwood, Lavender and more.

After my Sensuous Bath I rinse off my face and pat it dry. I put a drop or two of Frankincense* in the palm of my hand and then rub the palms of my hands together and Press my hands onto my face very gently. After that, I cup my hands over my nose and inhale deeply.

I also have a small spray bottle of Lavender or Stress Away mixed with water that I use to  spray on my pillow. I make my spray with a few drops of oil and filtered or spring water.

Then I put some oil on my feet. In the winter I use Thieves to boost my immunity, or Stress Away or Lavender. Sometimes I put socks on to keep my tootsies warm.

And if I’m having a really restless night I put my diffuser on with Lavender and Orange or Cedarwood.

With this sort of routine you are pretty much guaranteed a Sensuous Night’s Sleep !  It’s fun to Create your own unique Sensuous Bedtime Routine.

Sweet Dreams Sensuous Women!

Until Next time,

Peggy Durham

The Magic of Nature ~Essential Oils

 

wpid-20151114_142706.jpg

The Magic of Nature

I have always believed that Nature provides us with everything that we need to be Healthy, Happy, and Sensuous.  Recently, I became aware of a new way to get more in touch with Nature, and my Sensuous Self . . . Essential Oils.  Essential Oils are highly-concentrated essences from plants that make a plant magical.  They are derived from trees, flowers, herbs, grasses, and resins, using low pressure distillation or cold pressing.  Essential oils are compounds within the plants that are the plants’ natural defense mechanisms.  They help protect the plant.  These compounds are beneficial, and can be used to help us in similar ways.

“Stress Away” got me started.  A friend of mine gave me a drop of “Stress Away.”  I put the drop in my hand, then rubbed my hands together, cupped my hands over my face, and inhaled.  As a psychiatric RN, working night shift in a stressful environment, I discovered that just inhaling the “Stress Away” made me feel more relaxed.  “Stress Away” is a blend of essential oils created by Young Living that includes Vanilla, Lime, Copaiba, Cedarwood, Ocotea, and Lavender. . . .  I love this Essential Oil so much that I’m getting a “Stress Away” Rollerball for several people on my gift-giving list this year!

Here are a few of my Favorites:

Frankincense Oil . . .  I love what it does for my complexion, and how it makes me feel more serene and connected to my Inner Wisdom.  I put a drop in my hand, rub my hands together, and then press them against my face as I inhale.

Lemon Oil . . . Lemon oil is energizing and cleansing.  I enjoy putting a drop or two of real lemon or orange oil in a glass of water every day.  I use a few drops of Stevia to sweeten it.

Lavender . . . I made a Lavender Spray by adding 5 drops of real Lavender Oil in a 3 oz. spray bottle filled with water.  Spraying real Lavender water on my pillow helps me sleep more peacefully and awaken with more energy.

“Thieves” Blend . . . I consider “Thieves” Essential Oil… essential for me to use while I’m at work.  I put a few drops into my Diffuser and it clears the air without having to resort to harsh chemical sprays.  “Thieves” also supports Healthy Immune Function, and helps me feel more relaxed and grounded.  The “Thieves” Blend was designed by Gary Young, YoungLiving.com , and was inspired by a Legend of Four 15th Century Thieves, who used aromatic herbs to keep them healthy, while they were robbing the dead and dying.

What can I say? . . . I ended up buying the Premium Starter Kit which gives me a 24% discount. . . .  This is very helpful, because I keep finding new Essential Oils to Love.

Why I Chose Young Living Essential Oils . . .

Young Living has been in business for over 20 years, and offers the “Seed to Seal” Promise for their Oils. This means that they are in charge of each step of production, beginning with choosing the Seeds and continuing on until each bottle is Sealed.  Young Living’s Farms and Partner Farms are Organic, Sustainable, and Beneficial to the Environment, as well as the People who work with them, and the surrounding areas.

Those are all great reasons to Love this Company!  But, the main reason I love Young Living is that their Essential Oils are 100% High-Quality, Pure, and Therapeutic. These Pure, Therapeutic Essential Oils can be used aromatically, topically, and internally as a dietary supplement.

I never really meant to sell the products when I signed up.  But, whenever I have my Diffuser running at work, everyone wants to know what’s in it, and then, one thing leads to another.

You can find more information about Young Living Products on the website, YoungLiving.com.  I also would encourage you to do your own research to understand more about the many ways Essential Oils can be used to promote a Healthy Lifestyle.

If you know someone who sells Young Living Essential Oils – Great!  If not, you can use my number to order products from YoungLiving.com. #3056729

Enjoy the Magic of Nature that is found in Essential Oils to help you become the Sensuous, Sexy, Healthy and Happy Person you want to be!

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.

Feel vital every day with the whole food-based nutrients, powerful antioxidants, and pure essential oils found in these products:

NingXia Red™
OmegaGize3™
Life 5™
Slique™ Tea
Longevity™

~ Purify your home

Harsh chemical formulas aren’t your only home cleansing option. Enjoy peace of mind without compromise when you polish countertops, clean sticky messes, and cleanse dirty surfaces with the gentle but effective power of essential oils and our Thieves® line of products.

Thieves® Household Cleaner
Lemon essential oil
Thyme essential oil
Purification™ essential oil blend
Lemongrass essential oil

~ Refine your skin

Purge chemicals from your beauty routine and rediscover your natural glow. An ancient skin care secret, essential oils can help promote a clear-looking complexion, soften the appearance of signs of aging, and nurture healthy-looking hair. Using only natural ingredients, these advanced skin and hair care solutions make it easy to enjoy the beautiful benefits of essential oils every day.

ART® Renewal Serum
Lavender Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
Copaiba Vanilla Shampoo and Conditioner
Boswellia Wrinkle Cream
Lavender essential oil
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.
