A few weeks ago on the TGM Products Facebook page I made mention how I drew inspiration for SAILOR from Suzanne R Banks and one of the blends that she has made before.
Here she writes for TGM, after a little bit of correspondence between the two of us, thank you Suzanne:
Hi Garage folk, I hope you’re well and excited about essential oils.
I am Suzanne, an Aromatherapist from Australia. I write a blog and have written a book about essential oils too. In my practice I treat my clients through bodywork – massage and energetic balancing with essential oils as my main tool for transformation. On my blog I share stories about oils, my life and include lots of recipes too. Andre, the Garage Man has asked me to tell you a little bit about some essential oil recipes I have created – one of which the forms the base of one of his new products now sold in Pretoria, South Africa, at the night market in Equestria.
Everyone has their personal preferences when it comes to essential oils so when you are treating yourself, always go with your intuition. You may want more or less oils and as long as you patch test first, a little variation to quantities and ratios is fine.
When I create a blend I always do it on paper first. Because of my extensive use of essential oils in the past 20 years I am usually confident that the blend will smell beautiful and start working on all levels immediately – physical body, brain and mind, spirit. Having said that I have always created blends on paper first, allowing my intuition to guide me.
I love working with essential oils as they are the original medicines of the world as we know it. Plant based healing has been the first line of defense and prevention since record keeping thousands of years ago. When you embrace aromatic medicine in the form of essential oils and whole scented plants, you will not only refine your senses, but you will be accepting mother nature as your life giver. When you refine your senses you will automatically start removing toxic chemicals from your environment, which is a good thing. You will start to clean with better products, use less scented washing powders and generally feel better in your everyday life. I have no doubt that when you start using essential oils you will transform your life.
