Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ November 2017

IMG_9849.PNG

Dear friends,

summer has arrived here on the west coast of Australia. A busy time of the year with the school year coming to an end, lots of outdoor activities and time spent on the beach. I’ve already had my first sunburn of the season. And the oils have been a great help looking after that. So let’s look at how our oils can support us during the summer…

 

IMG_9829.PNG

After my first visit to the beach and exposing my winter skin to the sun I made up the following aftersun lotion. I found that adding the oils to the doTerra lotion made my skin feel more nurtured then using a carrier oil 

IMG_9835

I also made up a spray to soothe and cool the skin similar to the ones below. I used Lavender, Frankincense, Melaleuca and Roman Chamomile in a spray bottle with water. The Chamomile is very soothing and calming for the skin and smells beautiful.

IMG_9825

The other thing that is so important in summer is to stay properly hydrated. I find that I can drink a lot more water if I add a couple of drops of essential oils to it. One oil in particular that I love in my drinking water is Smart & Sassy – a combination of Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger and Cinnamon oil. It’s citrusy and refreshing and really good for your metabolism

Make sure to always use glass or stainless steel bottles. The Lemon oil for example has such strong cleansing properties that it can draw the plastic toxins out of your bottle if you use a plastic bottle.

theIMG_9836IMG_9847

In emotional aromatherapy Roman Chamomile is the Oil of Spiritual Purpose: Roman Chamomile supports an individual in discovering and living their true life purpose. Regardless of what they do for a living, Chamomile helps them find purpose and meaning in their lives. It assists a person in shedding the meaningless activities that consume their lives so that they can focus on a more fulfilling work, even the work of their own souls. People fear and believe that if they do what they love, they will end up destitute.  Roman Chamomile says, “Do what you love and everything will be a success.” ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

IMG_9837IMG_9846

In emotional aromatherapy Ginger is the Oil of Empowerment: Ginger oil holds no reservations. It has a purpose and it will fulfill it! Ginger powerfully persuades individuals to be fully present and participate in life. It teaches that to be successful in life one must be fully committed to it. Ginger empowers individuals in taking complete responsibility for their life circumstances. It infuses a warrior-like mentality based on personal integrity, centralised responsibility and individual choice. Here, the individual sees themselves as the creator of their own life. ~  excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

IMG_9838IMG_9845

In emotional aromatherapy Cedarwood is the Oil of Community: Cedarwood brings people together to experience the strength and value of community. It supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. It invites individuals to both give and receive, so they may experience the strength of groups and the joy of relationships. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ October 2017

 

IMG_9493.PNG

Dear friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you all in good health and making the most of your essential oils. There’s sooooo much great news in the doTerra community that I hardly know where to start… Last month doTerra held its annual Convention in Salt Lake City. 30,000 people attended it plus another 10,000 online – I was one of those and managed to see almost all the presentations. As always I am most fascinated by all the scientific research that has been published on the amazing effects of these pure therapeutic grade essential oils. And of course all the new oils that have been released: three new single oils, three Touch oils (diluted in fractionated coconut oil) and three new blends.  Let’s jump right in and have a look at one of the new oils – Copaiba – which Dr. Hill said will become one of the most used oils…

IMG_9439IMG_9453

So, let me try to recap what I learned about Copaiba in the convention presentation:

IMG_9456IMG_9457IMG_8838IMG_9458

As you can see in the comparison above, the cannabinoids derived from cannabis and hemp are either not very effective or do also effect the CB1 receptor which interacts with our brain and Central nervous system. That’s why it has a drug related effect. BetaCaroPhyllene – BCP  – derived from the Copaiba plant will only interact with the CB2 receptor which effects our endocrine and immune systems. And that’s exactly the therapeutic interaction we want.

IMG_9244

I have just received my own bottle of Copaiba and have started taking two drops directly on the tongue last night to see for myself what the benefits are. Since convention people have been sharing the effects of it generously. One person stated that it had a much more potent effect then the cannabidiol oil she had been taking previously. With the added advantage of being much cheaper. There’s a lot of talk online about the miracle cure of cannabis oil. However, Copaiba promises to be more effective while also being legally obtainable.

At the moment the Copaiba oil is only available through the US warehouse. I am waiting for my next order and if you live in Australia and are not enrolled with a different doTerra team I’m happy to send you a sample size bottle. For more information please send me a message or email.

IMG_8841IMG_8847IMG_8845IMG_8843IMG_8842

 

the

As I said earlier, three of the newly released oils come in Touch bottles which means that they are already diluted with fractionated coconut oil. The interesting fact here is that diluting essential oils does not make them less potent. It only changes the absorption. When essential oils are applied directly to the skin part of them will evaporate due to their volatile nature. When the essential oils are diluted with an appropriate carrier oil – we prefer fractionated coconut oil because it is non-greasy and easily absorbed – they are bound in the carrier oil and will not evaporate. The fractionated coconut oil will make the absorption slower but also deeper which in many cases will be more effective. 

So let’s introduce this beautiful trio of Touch oils:

IMG_9472IMG_9471

In emotional aromatherapy Jasmine is the Oil of Sexual Purity & Balance: Jasmine nurtures healthy sexuality and helps to balance sexual forces. It may also arouse dormant passions, assisting individuals to regain interest in the sexual experience. Jasmine encourages the release of past sexual trauma. Through its gentle, purifying nature, Jasmine brings forward unresolved sexual experiences and facilitates the healing process. Jasmine encourages safety within intimate relationships and invites only the purest intentions to the sexual experience. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

 

IMG_9473.PNGIMG_8731IMG_8730IMG_8729

 

And last but not least the oil we’ve all been waiting for:IMG_9463IMG_9474

In emotional aromatherapy Rose is the Oil of Divine Love: Rose oil holds a higher frequency then any other oil on the planet. It is a powerful healer of the heart. It supports an individual in reaching heavenward and contacting Divine love. Rose invites individuals to experience the unwavering, unchanging, unconditional love of the Divine. This love heals all hearts and dresses all wounds. It restores an individual to authenticity, wholeness and purity. Rose embodies Divine love and teaches individuals how to contact this love through prayer, meditation and opening the heart to receive. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

IMG_8734IMG_8735IMG_8737IMG_8736IMG_8739

Again, all these three new Touch oils are only available through the US warehouse at the moment. Please let me know if you need help ordering them.

 

And talking about the frequency in the Rose oil… if you are in Perth make sure to come around for an ITOVi scan of the frequencies of 273 bio points in your body:

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ September 2017

IMG_8620.PNG

Dear friends,

finally… spring is in the air here in Western Australia – blue skies and sunshine. Last month our team here in Perth had a *Tribe Appreciation Day*. Over 70 of our doTerra members joined us on Saturday, 19 August at Guildford town hall for 3.5 hours of exploring essential oils. We had 6 different presentations on  making your own blends ~ diy cleaning products ~ cooking with essential oils ~ Lifelong Vitality supplements ~ emotional aromatherapy for children ~ first aid with doTerra. Plus market stalls offering essential oil related books, accessories, diffusers, jewellery and home made skin care. And iTOVi scans – more on that later…

IMG_8622.PNG

The day was such a big success. Everyone went home with a goody bag full of products, new inspiration and knowledge on how to make the most of their oils. We are already planning another similar event for the first weekend in December.

 

IMG_8623.PNG

With spring in the air it feels like such a perfect time for a bit of self care. Grab that cup of tea and sit in the sun for a few moments soaking up the warmth. Spend just 10 min a day journaling, drawing, stitching. Nurture your soul and spirit.

IMG_8641.PNG

Essential oils can be such a great support in self care. They help us to relax, to cheer up, to overcome negative emotions, to nurture body and soul.

I came across this great blend the other day: Patchouli ~ Bergamot ~ Black Pepper. Most of us can be a bit hard on ourselves from time to time, right? This blend addresses those issues in a beautiful way.

IMG_8647.JPG

All in all this blend is grounding, uplifting and warming. When I heard about it I put it in my diffuser straight away! And it is really beautiful for a little massage after a bath or shower or before going to bed: in a small bowl combine 10ml fractionated coconut oil with 2 drops each of Patchouli, Bergamot and Black Pepper – if you don’t have these oils make up your own personal blend. Massage into body from feet upwards.

IMG_8630.PNG

Self care doesn’t have to take long. It can be those few moments where you get out a bottle of your favourite essential oil, rub a drop between the palms of your hands and inhale the aroma several times. The aromatic particals enter your nose and travel to the limbic system in your brain. Within a couple of seconds they affect your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and emotions – making you feel relaxed, enlivened, motivated, uplifted…  Make sure to remember to inhale your oils regularly throughout the day.  

To take the whole experience to another level I will add some recipes for self care in the >DIY section< of the newsletter 💜

 

the

doterra released two new oils recently that are only available in Australia and New Zealand: Litsea and Manuka

IMG_8608

IMG_8609So far I have only tried the Litsea, which is so similar to Melissa oil but at a fraction of the price.

IMG_8654

IMG_8657

In emotional aromatherapy Clove is the Oil of Boundaries: Clove supports individuals to let go of victim mentality. It helps individuals to stand up for themselves, be proactive, and feel capable of making their own decisions, regardless of others’ opinions or responses.  Clove assists individuals in letting go of patterns of self-betrayal and codependency by reconnecting them with their personal integrity. It builds up appropriate boundaries and defences. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

 

this-monthsIMG_8607

Please let me know if you need any help to access these offers. The Clove oil  plus the Manuka and Litsea are worth $116.25 – all free this month if you place a LRP order of 200PV.

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ August 2017

IMG_8261.PNG

Dear friends,

welcome to August! After almost two months overseas I’m back in Australia enjoying some quiet time and also busy catching up with things online. I’ve also found myself contemplating and researching health issues like auto immune diseases, inflammations, gut health… what the causes are and how we can effectively improve our health to prevent and overcome these diseases.

I wasn’t sure how to tackle all of this in a newsletter. And then I came across a great  Presentation on Immune Support which covers a lot of those issues in an easy to understand format whilst offering simple and effective solutions. So let’s have a look at that:

 

IMG_8262.PNG

Our Immune System is one of the most important body systems as it protects us from outside threats like bacteria, viruses and fungi.IMG_8263.JPG

Point one – exercise regularly – is pretty self explanatory. But how do you manage stress levels? And did you know that stress limits the health of your immune system? Here are some oils and how to use them:IMG_8266.JPG

Adequate sleep is so important for our overall health and the immune system. Our bodies need prolonged periods of deep restful sleep to function properly. Here are some oils that can assist:IMG_8268.JPG

And then there’s adequate nutrition. What does that actually mean? Making sure that our body receives all the nutrition that it needs to function optimally. Unfortunately we don’t receive all of that through the food we buy and consume anymore. And I am not going into all the detail here now but I’d like to encourage you to watch a video that we made on the Lifelong Vitality supplements

IMG_8270.JPG

Another subject that I feel passionate about and that directly influences our immune function is gut health. So many people these days suffer from inflammation in their digestive system. Without going into the many causes for these inflammations let’s have a look at improving our gut health and laying a foundation for improved overall health and immune function:IMG_8273.JPG

And last but not least we can use certain doTerra single essential oils to boost our immune system like Cassia, Cinnamon, Lime, Marjoram, Melaleuca, Oregano, Roman Chamomile, Tangerine, Thyme, Vetiver and Wild Orange. They all help to maintain and support the immune system when taken internally. Simply add a couple of drops to a glass of water or other beverages or take in a veggie cap. Please refer to this safety information when taking oils internally. Plus doTerra’s proprietary Protective Blend OnGuard:IMG_8277.JPG

For more in depth information on all the above please have a look at the Immune Support Presentation

 

the

Let’s explore some of the single oils mentioned above that support and maintain healthy immune function:IMG_8278IMG_8288In emotional aromatherapy Cinnamon is the Oil of Sexual Harmony: Cinnamon supports the reproductive system and helps heal sexual issues. It assists individuals in accepting their body and embracing their physical attractiveness. Cinnamon dispels fear  of rejection and nurtures healthy sexuality. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

IMG_8280IMG_8287

In emotional aromatherapy Chamomile is the Oil of Spiritual Purpose: Chamomile supports an individual in discovering and living their true life purpose. Regardless of what they do for a living, Chamomile helps them find purpose and meaning in their lives. As individuals live from the center of their beings, they find a power and a purpose that is indescribable. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

IMG_8279IMG_8289

In emotional aromatherapy Tangerine is the Oil of Cheer & Creativity: Tangerine’s strong qualities of cheer and joyfulness can lift the darkest of moods. It can assist those who feel cut off from the lightness of heart often manifested by children. It encourages a person to be creative and spontaneous. Tangerine teaches the individual to enjoy life by being more abundantly creative and to re-experience the joy and cheerfulness they knew in childhood. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book

Tangerine essential oil is now available for sale through the doTerra US warehouse.

Other oils that are beneficial for immune support like Lime, Marjoram, Thyme, Wild Orange and OnGuard have been featured in previous newsletters. And videos of Melaleuca, Oregano and OnGuard are available on our YouTube channel

this-monthsIMG_8231.JPG

In Australia this month we have 10% off one of my favourite blends – InTune the focus blend. It has helped me so much to stay focused on work whereas before I would have been distracted by anything happening around me or even thoughts in my head. These days I find it very easy to focus on the work at hand, even when it means sitting here for a whole day to pull together all the information for this newsletter. Thank you InTune 💜

And Lime – one of the oils beneficial to our immune system – is the oil of the month. You can read up on it in the March Newsletter

The other great promotion this month for anyone who hasn’t got a doTerra account yet is that they can qualify for a free pack of Lifelong Vitality worth $153 retail. This is a great offer and some of my friends have already taken advantage of it.

Please make sure to contact me if you want help to access any of these promotions.

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ July 2017

IMG_7656.PNG

Dear friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you all in good health. A lot of us around the world are on school holidays this month, enjoying some outdoor time and maybe travelling. I’ve just come back from a 4-week trip to Europe. The first time I’ve been back in 23 years. And as you can imagine it involved a lot of catching up with family and friends. Some of the time I slept on a different sofa almost every night and got an average of 5 hours sleep due to all the late nights catching up with old friends.  I don’t think I could have coped without my oils. And I’d like to share some of that with you in the Focus section:

IMG_7654IMG_7666

This is what I carry with me wherever I go – every day. At home. Overseas. My constant essential oil companion.

I strongly believe that the basis for a healthy life is a balanced digestion. While travelling – especially on a plane – I have a drop of DigestZen after every meal. Straight on the tongue or in a glass of water. Since I’ve been doing this I haven’t experienced any jetlag anymore. Even when travelling over 12 time zones from Perth to NY.

The other important thing is to keep boosting the immune system with OnGuard. I use 1-2 drops of oil in a glass of water once a day. You can also put the oil on the soles of your feet morning and night or pop a couple of OnGuard beadlets which contain a quarter of a drop of the oil and open in your tummy.

I also have a drop of Lemon in my water first thing in the morning to rehydrate and flush out any toxins in my body.

Those are the absolute daily essentials. Plus all the other bits and pieces I might need: an OnGuard lozenge for a sore throat, Basil for an ear ache, Lavender to relax, Peppermint to cool down and to relief nausea/travel sickness, CorrectX ointment for blisters, lip balm & hand creme, ClaryCalm for hormone  balancing, InTune to focus, Oregano for cold feet, PastTense when I feel a migraine coming on, DeepBlue for my knees and achy back, Salubelle/Immortelle to refresh the skin, Wild Orange to uplift and Frankincense for general healing.

Your personal kit might look different from mine. And I’d be happy to help you choose oils that can support you on a daily basis. Just send me a message. We are also making more zip pouches for roller bottles and keychain pouches for 8 x 2ml oil bottles while I am in Bali this month. And I’ll throw in a zip pouch with every order over 150PV this month and a keychain pouch with orders over 200PV if you send me a message. This offer is valid for members on my doTerra team only.

the

Let’s look at some of the herbal oils this month: Marjoram, Cilantro and Thyme

IMG_7678IMG_7688

In emotional aromatherapy Marjoram is the Oil of Connection: Marjoram aids those who are unable to trust others or form meaningful relationships. This inability to trust often stems from harsh life experiences. The individual develops a fear of close connection in human relationships. Marjoram teaches that trust is the basis for all human relationships. It assists an individual in increasing their warmth and trust in social situations. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils book

In Australia Marjoram is the Product of the Month and you will receive a free 15ml bottle of Marjoram if you put in your LRP order of 125 PV before the 15th July – please let me know if you need help with this.

 

IMG_7677IMG_7686

Cilantro is the Oil of Releasing Control in emotional aromatherapy: Those in need of Cilantro may attempt to obsessively control other people or manage their environment. Inwardly, these individuals may experience a great deal of worry and mental strain. Cilantro facilitates emotional cleansing, and especially encourages the release of worry and control as it assists individuals in centering in their True Self. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils book

 

IMG_7679IMG_7689

In emotional aromatherapy Thyme is the Oil of Releasing & Forgiving: Thyme is one of the most powerful cleansers of the emotional body and assists in addressing trapped feelings which have been buried for a long time. It reaches deep within the body and soul, searching for unresolved negativity. Thyme empties the soul of all negativity, leaving the heart wide open. In this state of openness, an individual begins to feel tolerance and patience for others. As the heart opens more and more, it is able to receive love and offer forgiveness. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils book

 

I would also like to remind you to visit our YouTube channel to watch us talk about our favourite oils. We will be making videos in German as well this month. Click here to access our YouTube channel. IMG_7228

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ June 2017

IMG_7223

Dear friends,

we’ve got lots of exciting news for you this month: fun ways to engage with your oils, the best offer of the year (in my opinion), tips for skin care, DIY and much more… let’s dive straight in:

IMG_7232I’ve used doTerra skin care for about two years now  and even though I’ve always used natural products I’ll never forget using these for the first time. I couldn’t believe how toned and soft my skin felt after cleansing, toning, hydrating and moisturising with the Verage skin care products. I was so excited I called my teenage son to come and feel my skin!IMG_7251.PNG

The Verage skin care collection consists of  four products: a cleanser, a toner, a hydrating serum and a moisturiser. They are easy to use – it literally takes me a couple of minutes – and a little bit goes a long way. Our skin is our largest organ and for me it is really important to know that I use only natural products on my skin. doTerra fulfills this criteria and here’s the ingredients list of the Verage skin careVerage ingredients

The hydrating serum contains another one of my favourite oil blends: Salubelle – or Immortelle as it’s called in most countries outside of Australia – the anti-aging blend.IMG_7252.PNGFor me Salubelle/Immortelle is one of the most luxurious oil blends – it even contains the precious Rose oil. I always carry a bottle in my hand bag and just dab a bit on the parts of my face that I feel need anti-aging: around the eyes, on the forehead, around the mouth and the neck. And I can immediately feel the difference it makes. It makes my skin come alive and engages it in cell regenerating.

dotera also makes two other lines of skin careThe Essential Skin Care and The HD Clear Skin Care which is also suitable for teenagers and to help with acne.

IMG_7253.PNG

And guess what? This month is my favourite doTerra month of the year! Because anyone can get a *Free Bottle of Salubelle* worth A$129 retail! More about that later…

theThis month I want to introduce you to our YouTube channel. As some of you might know Paul and I have been making little videos where we chat about different oils. We have just completed the last video for the ten oils in the Home Essentials Kit and we hope that you find some new information and ways to use your oils. Click here to go to Nicole & Paul’s YouTube channel

IMG_7228

We are planning to make more videos and also start making them in German and Indonesian.

this-monthsAs mentioned before… this month is my favourite doTerra month of the year because I can get a free bottle of Salubelle/Immortelle with my order of 200PVIMG_7198.PNGHow generous is that? If you need any help to place your order please let me know. I also offer free advice on which oils or products you might need in relation to your health goals/challenges. This is a good time to review which oils can assist you and then get your free Salubelle on top of that. I am always available online if you can’t catch me in person.

The other promotions this month are:

IMG_7255

living-sharing-buildingEarly last month I received a call from doTerra marketing in Australia asking if I’d like to feature in their monthly online newsletter. The interview was a really great way for me to contemplate the questions and be clear for myself about why I love the products and the company and my job so much. You can read My doTerra interview hereIMG_7256.PNG

Just before that we had also thought that since our videos are so amateurish it might be fun to do something more professional and I collaborated with my niece, Tashi Hall, to make a little Introduction to Essential Oils video. Tashi is an immensely talented filmmaker and a lot of the video was shot without me knowing that it was not a test. Click here to watch:   My introduction to doTerraIMG_7227.PNG

We also just had the doTerra Leadership Retreat in Perth – two days of inspiring talks and presentations shared with around 500 doTerra leaders from around Australia and New Zealand. And I am now travelling in Switzerland and Germany to visit family and friends and teach essential oil classes.

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ May 2017

IMG_6900.PNG

Dear friends,

welcome to the month of May! In Europe and Northern America it brings the first fragrance of summer. And for us in Australia the coming of autumn and winter. In the last newsletter we talked about cleansing, boosting the immune system and a healthy digestive system. This month I want to share with you how I was introduced to doTerra and we’ll also look at wood oils.

IMG_6901IMG_6912

PastTense is the first doTerra product I came in contact with. I used to suffer from really debilitating migraines since I was in my late teens. And I never found a natural product that could give me relief from the migraines. Just over three years ago I had another migraine coming on and a friend passed me this little roller bottle and said: “just roll this oil onto your neck, your temples and forehead and lie down and you’ll be alright.” I thought: ” as if…” but she’s a lovely person and I just gave it a go. After 20 minutes I was able to get up and continue with my day. The usual migraine routine was to vomit and get so light sensitive that I’d have to stay in a dark room until the next day. You can probably imagine my surprise. I just looked at that small bottle saying ‘PastTense’ and wondered: “what is this?”

IMG_6916.PNG

I always carry a bottle of PastTense with me in my handbag (along with a few others that come in handy…). And this month I will give a ***FREE bottle of PastTense*** to anyone who wants to become a doTerra member with a kit AND everyone who introduces a friend who then becomes a member.

 

theThis month we will look at the many benefits of oils made from trees: Cedarwood, Douglas Fir and Sandalwood

IMG_6917

I love the warm woody smell of Cedarwood and use it often for its grounding properties in the diffuser. It blends well with Bergamot, Clary Sage, Eucalyptus… In emotional aromatherapy Cedarwood is the Oil of Community: Cedarwood brings people together to experience the strength and value of community. Cedarwood supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. It invites individuals to both give and receive, so they may experience the strength of groups and the joy of relationships. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.

IMG_6935.PNG

Cedarwood is also really helpful in repelling moths from your wardrobe: just add a drop or two to a cotton ball and put it between your clothes.

 

IMG_6918

Douglas Fir is an introduced species in New Zealand that causes big environmental problems. Watch this little video to see how doTerra is part of a great solution for this problem and at the same time produces this beautiful oil – true co-impact sourcing! 

IMG_6929.PNG

The fresh woody smell of Douglas Fir is so beneficial to all sorts of respiratory problems when diffused or diluted in a carrier oil and applied topically. Douglas Fir in emotional aromatherapy is the Oil of Generational Wisdom: Douglas Fir addresses generational issues by inviting individuals to break free from destructive traditions passed down trough their family. It assists individuals to live according to their own conscience and values by letting go of harmful patterns. It teaches that each generation can be a gift of new life, new growth, and new beginnings. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.

 

IMG_6919

Sandalwood – ahhhh…. who loves Sandalwood? I certainly do! I am sitting here writing this and sniffing at this little bottle of magic – the Oil of Sacred Devotion: Sandalwood assists with all kind of prayer, meditation and spiritual worship. It teaches reverence and respect for Deity. This oil has been used since ancient times for its powerful ability to calm the mind, still the heart and prepare the spirit to commune with God. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils. It’s that immediate feeling of peace that comes when breathing in Sandalwood that I so love – the calm mind and still heart.
