Quotes About Change!

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

George Bernard Shaw
 
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

John F. Kennedy
 
For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Steve Jobs
 
When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.

Viktor E. Frankl
 
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi
If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolor.

Isabel Allende
Small change, small wonders – these are the currency of my endurance and ultimately of my life.

Barbara Kingsolver

Essential Oil of the Month: Amyris (Torchwood) Calming to the Body and Mind!

Amyris: generic name is derived from the Greek word αμυρων (amyron), which means “intensely scented” and refers to the strong odor of the resin; it is also known as West Indian Sandalwood. Is known as a Torchwood because of the highly flammable wood.

Scientific classification
Kingdom: Plantae
(unranked): Angiosperms
(unranked): Eudicots
(unranked): Rosids
Order: Sapindales
Family: Rutaceae
Subfamily: Toddalioideae
Genus: Amyris
P.Browne
Type species
Amyris balsamifera
L.

Is a type of balsam.

Blends well with:  masculine scents & Citronella, Geranium, Lavandin, Lavender, Nagarmotha, Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sassafras, Sandalwood, Vetiver, & Ylang Ylang.

Used as a substitute for sandalwood, though scent profiles are different.

Note: base & fixative

Part used: wood

Steam distilled

Chakra: Sacral

Chakra color: orange

Scent profile: It has a hidden note of sweet dry earthy vanilla is similar to Benzoin Absolute, cedar (woody) with balsamic notes.

Used as: Antiseptic, deodorant, emollient, sedative, improves circulation. Very calming to the skin and the mind; considered an aphrodisiac.

Essential Oil should not be applied directly to the skin but in carrier oils, putting the oils directly on the skin is too harsh due to their concentrated form. Add a few drops essential oil to the carrier oil.

If you are pregnant, receiving cancer treatment, or have a weakened immune system the use of essential oils is not recommended!

While essential oil will not go rancid, carrier oils can. Store your carrier oils in a cool, dry, and dark place.
