I will be at the Uppsala Market again this Saturday morning for some hours. I will have the dried tea blends, dried herbs and the products I make from plants I grow. Also a few veggies, mainly Sungold tomatoes and Jalapeno peppers. It is a good time to get free shipping on any products ordered as I can deliver them in person.
I really appreciate Lavender and wanted to do a solo distillation when it was at its peak. Harvesting in the early morning sun when about half the flowers are open brought the most essential oil that I have seen yet, especially from a small distillation (about 1 litre of plant material).
Here is the oil in the separator.
………………….and the Lavender before distillation.
Sometimes we need a little support during the transition times. I support the plants by providing cover which helps regulate the temperature between day and night, providing a little warmth, protection and regularity. We begin wearing jackets and scarves to help keep the cold breezes out too.
Transitions, a healing blend of essential oils, is a great way to support the mind and body via the limbic system. It is comforting while being action oriented. You can wear it on the skin or a scarf or just smell right from the bottle.
Lavender harmonizes the flow of chi helping things to work together smoothly.
Cypress circulates the chi, aiding in letting go of the old and welcoming the new, transforming one’s approach to change.
Palmarosa is nourishing and warming and encourages grounding.
Cedar Atlas tonifies, helping to clear blockages, both physical and emotional.
These are in a base of Safflower oil at around 50% strength in a 3,75ml bottle. Tap on the bottom to release one drop at a time on the wrists or in the palm of your hand, then breath deeply in as many times or as often as you like.
Enjoy each day as it comes and goes.
