My Current Favorite Mama Love Products!

Okay, to be honest, that depends on when you ask me -- I use my own products and love so many of them! Mama Love Support for Troubled Times certainly is a favorite, Releasing Worry & Fear (almost everybody's favorite!) and certainly Open-Hearted Loving with its combination of Rose, Jasmine, Lemon and Neroli! But as a Jasmine and Clary Sage lover, nothing I make makes me say "OMG, that smells so amazing!" like my Manifesting Life Purpose flower essence aromatherapy spray. Other ones smell great, too, but this one simply blows me away. And it makes me feel happy every time I make some. (Maybe because flower essences are part of my life purpose? Or because I just love things that smell so good!)

How to use Flower Essence Aromatherapy Sprays from Mama Love

I get this question very often and am in the long process of changing over my labels to make it more clear: "Should I spray your flower essence aromatherapy formulas directly on my skin or in the air around my body?"

Both! I do it that way at least. The sprays are at true aromatherapy dilution to be safe for almost all people (unless you're allergic to a certain ingredient or should not be using scented products at all). Of course, DO NOT spray it in your mouth--it's only meant for external use!

What I like best about the sprays is

1) The convenient approach -- no getting oils on your hands, just spritz, spritz, done!

2) The ability to use it specifically in the aura and not just on the body level. (Remember: these are potent energetically with Reiki and flower essences. Take advantage of it!)

You'll find the scented sprays on my Mama Love website.

Calm Down and Get Focused with Mama Love!

In today’s fast-moving world—signified by so much distraction and overstimulation—it is sometimes very difficult to stay centered, focus on the tasks at hand, or wind down and shut off the external noise competing for our attention. I originally thought of this formula for people with ADHD-like issues and that it wouldn't be appropriate for me. But I, of course, had to try it out and found it immediately helpful! It helps me relax amidst the noise and haste or come back to center when I’ve lost my grounding.

This is a really nice-smelling spray with Vetiver, Sweet Orange, and Lavender essential oils combined with Rock Rose and Indian Pink flower essences and infused, as always, with Reiki.

You can find it on Etsy right now and you'll find it on my own website soon.

4th Chakra Healing and More About the Open Heart Experiment

Yesterday I started to share a bit about an experiment I'm doing with my Open-Hearted Loving formula. As the day went on I used it 3 times and found myself surprised and marveling at how unusually relaxed I felt. My shoulders started to relax and my upper chest and back started to feel better. I did not expect this effect!

So I chatted with my partner Paul to get his insight. He thought that opening the heart would be deeply relaxing because it takes a psychic toll on a person to close themselves off from people or, perhaps, to be sitting in judgment of other people and the state of the world. Me?!! Well... I have been experiencing a lot of righteous anger about things this election season.

But not only that, I've been carrying  a lot of grief and anger about some heartfelt desires/needs I have felt thwarted in these past few years. Lots of closed doors, lots of despair and disappointment. And most definitely harsh judgement about what those closed doors mean about the people who kept them closed or about me. Easier to try to close a heart down than to keep thinking about those closed doors and the things you think you can't have anymore! Heart's desires, the dreams a person might have had growing up or throughout one's life, hitting up against hard cold brutal reality.

But that's not what this formula is all about! Or is it?

It's supposed to be about love! But the 4th chakra  -- the heart chakra -- is not just about love of others. It is about heart's desires and how we create our happiest life. It's about our true calling, our childhood dreams, our adult fantasies, and what we believe about our deservingness to have it. It's about how we become our true selves. And whether that self can accept the true love available to each of us from the world around. Not just lovers but heart-felt dreams and desires. The despair we have felt about lost dreams, and concerns and fears about trying again and possibly losing more, manifests as bunched up muscles and pain. And then there are the mistakes we make along the way: the false dreams we create to take the place of forgotten ones or perhaps to heal the fact that we know we gave up on that. Healing this area can help us heal the larger agendas for our lives. The true callings of our heart and how to get there.

Open Your Heart to Yourself!

I've been having some significant pain in my shoulders and neck and upper arm for a long time--starting years ago and slowly progressing until now I can't ignore it any longer. Today -- in addition to the Tiger Balm and conventional NSAID pain relievers I usually don't like to take -- I was guided to spray some of my Open-Hearted Loving flower essence aromatherapy formula on myself.

I thought "Why? I don't need that one!" I think I have a great partner. I love the smell of this formula -- it's my favorite scent! But I never identify it with myself.

But, omg, am I wrong! One spritz on my mid-back and one on my chest and I knew better. I felt my chest and mid-upper back release and soften. I suddenly wanted to run into the bedroom where Paul was still asleep and give him a kiss. And I found myself wondering "WTH is up with this?!!!"

I'm still puzzling it out but some insights: I have a tendency to feel alone, like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. This is a chronic thing from childhood. Add to that the "political revolution" I am SO steeped in and what it represents to me (the good and the bad of it -- I both love and fear what it means). And my own struggles with trying to bring Mama Love to market despite my lifelong tendency to want to hide my introvert-like self away and not sell it in-person at all. I feel like I need to force myself to do the opposite these days and it's not very loving to myself at all. At least not in excess -- a little stretching and growing and changing is good for the soul!

So I'm sitting here with my shoulders more relaxed than I have felt in weeks, just astonished about what this means for me and for anyone else going through similar states of being. And HOW do I share it in a meaningful helpful way? Well, I guess I'll hit "Publish" as a start and see what else I learn about this magical-feeling formula for me today.

Open-Hearted Loving is available as a scented or unscented spray, as an oil, and as a triple strength balm (just a few left!) or triple strength (perfume strength) oil.
