Putting Your Needs First with Flower Essence Aromatherapy

Mama Love for Putting Your Needs First

Well, that happened fast! In my last newsletter, I asked about what I should name this formula for women having a hard time making the time and following through with their commitment to take care of themselves better. I was calling it "Putting Your Needs First" which didn't seem quite right but my customers disagreed. Not only that, they wanted some for themselves. So, what used to be a custom made-on-demand product with handwritten labels just went into my regular list. That means I've been designing and printing labels, doing photos and creating new listings on Etsy half the day. And I'm not done but I'm putting MY needs first. After I post this announcement, I'm taking a break!

You can find Putting Your Needs first as flower essence aromatherapy spray infused with Reiki in my Etsy shop.

It is also available in traditional flower essence only dropper bottle form and as an unscented flower essence spray. (also infused with Reiki)

Making Your Own All Natural Leave-in Hair Conditioner

This is a recipe featuring Marshmallow Root I might actually try because I've been looking for a leave-in conditioner since my favorite brand stopped making theirs. But I would add a little Rosemary Oil and Vitamin E to help preserve it and a touch of Lavender to make it smell good. If you want to try it, I just added Organic Marshmallow Root to my Etsy shop.

Making Natural Marshmallows from Scratch the Old-Fashioned Way

Wow! I will never do this. But I bet a lot of my readers will think it's a challenge worth accepting. It will certainly give you a great appreciation for why people no longer tend to make marshmallows this way! But it could be great fun to do with your kids.

And if you should want to, I just added Organic Marshmallow Root to my Etsy shop! It also makes a great  (and I think tasty) addition to medicinal teas -- useful for sore throats and after dinner digestion.

Deerbrush Flower Essence for Knowing Your Inner Truth

Deerbrush Flower Essence, © Copyright 2014 Sheryl Karas
With the intense focus on truth and lack thereof dominating our national consciousness at the current time, I found myself thinking about Deerbrush flower essence, the flower remedy for knowing your inner truth and acting in congruence with your true feelings. It's easy to condemn people who lie or spin the truth. Again, these days it's hard not to be swept up in it. But in reality a lot of us try to hide our true feelings in order to protect ourselves or get along in certain situations. Sometimes we have mixed feelings or inner conflicts that haven't been resolved. "Sure, I'd love to take your job offer—I'm sure I'll do a great job typing your correspondence and filing all day long," says the disorganized but starving artist desperate to get a job. They might even talk themselves into believing that will be true. Deerbrush can be thought of as a cleansing formula -- clearing out the spiritual and mental / emotional debris that gets in the way of knowing your true feelings and acting accordingly.

I've just made Reiki-infused Deerbrush dosage bottles and sprays available in my Etsy shop.
