January 30, 2015- Today was spent learning how to apply a variety of essential oils to another person’s body, in a therapeutic and respectful manner. Couples can have lots of fun with this, as well. For me, though, it was a focused and elegant exercise. The purpose of this is to address the sacrocranial column and the feet, with 5-8 oils. Each of these oils has a specific property and affects the body in a particular way. Lavender, which starts the process, relaxes the body. Peppermint, which ends it, brings the body back to a state of alertness. The whole process, for each of us, took 40 minutes.
I am now certified to OFFER this treatment to people, but I will not CHARGE for it, at least not for the time being. I may not teach others how, without a rigourous training process. The most important thing is that, once one learns the process, it is a good idea to let people know that it works. When it was done on me, this morning, I felt wondrously relaxed and spiritually nourished. Oh, and the Thai curried chicken added to those feelings.
If you have the opportunity to learn this process, take it.
