Essential Oils for Beauty and Burns

Essential Oils for Beauty and Burns

by

Sensual lovers, recently I burned myself again. I have to be a little more careful in the kitchen. This time, I singed about 2 inches of skin on my inner elbow- not a great place as every time I moved my arm, I opened the wound. Wowzers, it wasn’t comfortable. 

Thank goodness for the regenerative, anti-bacterial power of essential oils. My protocol was simple and effective. After the initial run of peppermint to cool the skin, I continued with lavender, and lots of it. For about a week, I applied it every few minutes (or whenever the pain would strike). It was immediately calming and regenerating. I could see the skin knit itself back together. I also bathed the skin in bright sunshine (and Vitamin D). After the skin healed over, I wanted to ensure that it wouldn’t scar so I applied the supremely healing skin serum- a blend that makes skin sparkle. Day by day, it disappeared without puffy or pulled skin, red inflamed skin or discoloration. Viva! It’s all happening.

Yup, it’s here. There’s a discernible nip in the air, the trees are starting to shed their leaves and it is time to put away all our cute summer dresses. Dang. Fall is upon us and with that, many of us fall victim to the dreaded common cold. Sensual lovers, there is nothing glamourous about red runny noses and big puffy eyes. I am here to help. In order to keep your immune system strong, there is a lot you can do NOW to set yourself up for the entire winter.

Cold Season

Of course my favorite place to start is with essential oils. In my book, Aromatherapy for Sensual Living, I talk about the medicinal value of essential oils. By simply incorporating them into your daily routine, you will find that you get sick less often and have the added benefit of being surrounded by potent and delightful aromatics. Essential oils are effective healers that I describe as the “anti-anti” meaning that they are all anti-biotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, antispasmodic, anti-stress and more. Essential oils have a particular intelligence to do exactly what your body needs. This comes in handy during cold and flu season.

A Short History of Essential oils

by

Societies have been distilling plants for beauty, perfume, and medicine for more than 5,000 years. There is an undeniable energy, attraction and healing power in the aromatics of plants. Perfume is power and pure flirtation. I have often said that authentic distillations of essential oils are a way to hold, touch and play with the divine in our very own hands.

These libations have been used since the time of Christ and Cleopatra. They are ancient. Throughout history, sacred herbs and medicines were traded and exchanged along trade routes to create, distill and use in an aroma apothecary. There are documents of perfume production in ancient Egypt, Persia, China, India, and Japan. In fact, speciality pots have been found at 5,500-year-old Sumerian sites which are believed to have been used for primitive extraction of essential oils.

Sensual lovers… I am going to share a little secret with you about the power of essential oils.

By using different oils, you can easily adjust the mood of any room or situation. This can be a powerful tool to purify the air after a stressful interaction or elevate the mood to create a sexy night. With a little knowledge, you can use them to get exactly what you want every time, without fail. Pure Perfume (purfrequency.com) is potent flirtation.

Many people are not yet fully acquainted with the power of essential oils. That’s where I come in. I often invite friends and lovers over for an aromatherapy party to show them the different ways to use essential oils. It’s a total game changer. Many people may have an inkling into the power of aromatherapy but tend to stop at oil of oregano or peppermint. Why stop there when there are hundreds to choose from that are equally effective and delicious?

Will Smith Knows the Power of Pure Perfume

by

Recently I caught up with Will Smith on the set of Suicide Squad as he was wrapping up production here in Toronto in his role as Deadshot (Floyd Lawton), the comic book character known as the world’s deadliest marksman.

Big News! Will Smith is a sensual lover. He is into the pure, potent power of essential oils blended up into natural perfume. But of course… Will Smith is a man in the know.

Recently, I connected with Will Smith to create a custom perfume blend. I was so excited to have my potent PurFrequency oils in the hands (and on the body) of a man whose work and life I have always respected. Will is a gregarious, sexy beast with charisma and passion to spare. As such, for his personalized perfume, I saw that he would adore roots and trees with just a little sexy spice.

Hummus 4 different ways: Essential oils included

by

Summer eating is the best. Farm fresh, local, organic food is abundant. It’s a time to relax and unwind with simple casual meals. Viva! One of my favorite summer staples is hummus.  It’s perfect side dish or welcome accompaniment to any picnic.

My hummus is pretty famous. I thought you would like to know my secrets. There are a few.

Soak your Beans

Cooking beans fresh as opposed to using them from a can makes a huge difference in the tastiness and quality of any bean dip or dish. It requires a little bit of pre-planning but once you try homemade (and soaked) beans, it’s difficult to go back to the salty, lifeless goop found in cans. The benefits of soaking your beans include: less cost, more nutrition, less sodium and a reduction of the farts. Sensual lovers are not tooting  machines. Additionally, soaking beans remove the phytic acid that naturally occurs on beans, nuts and seeds. It benefits the plant because it acts as a natural pesticide but not so good for you because it blocks absorption of key minerals such as iron, zinc and calcium. By soaking your beans (nuts and seeds), you are awakening the life force within the plant making it available to you and your thirsty cells. It’s magical.

Sensual lovers… woohoo, I did it!

And after the launch of my book, Aromatherapy for Sensual Living and the birth of my company, Pur Frequency, only the best aromatherapy for beauty, health and lifestyle, I found myself incredibly happy and pretty much depleted. Eek! Dark circles. Sensual lovers know that beauty (and productivity) does not come from exhaustion so afterward the launch, I asked and received a constitutional reset.

We get by with a little help from our friends

One of my closest beloveds invited me up to the cottage for a week of maximum chilling and deep restoration. It was sublime. I spent my days eating gorgeous food, hiking Haliburton hills, hula hooping, swimming and imbibing in sweet sensual living luxury. It was just what the doctor ordered.

Aromatherapy: 7 essential oils to make you purr

Aromatherapy: 7 essential oils to make you purr

by

Essential oils have a powerful effect on the pleasure centers of the brain, and can (and should) be used to enhance erotic desire and bedroom play. This isn’t wishful thinking but an ancient healing modality grounded in science. Plants emit natural aphrodisiac pheromones to encourage pollinators to feast on their beauty. We get to use these pheromones (or plant perfume) in the form of essential oils to do the same thing. With a little bit of knowledge and some clever placement, you can have them eating out of the palm of your hand. In my twenty years of years, I have often employed essential oils to captivate the imagination of a potential suitor…and the results are too juicy to share.
