I savor the week between Christmas and New Year's Day, because it provides a perfect opportunity to organize and set plans in motion for the year ahead. Of course, I'll admit that it's tough to get my head back to work after a few days of non-stop holiday get-togethers!
I have great success focusing my mood and my mind with aromatherapy- especially Golden Earth's chakra oils, blended from therapeutic-grade essential oils.
I asked Elizabeth Golden, aromatherapist and founder of Golden Earth, to introduce Beauty Is Wellness readers to chakra oils- with a focus on new year's preparedness. And she generously offered to give away her favorite chakra oil for the new year- chakra oil #1 for abundance and stability!
To enter to win Golden Earth's Chakra Oil #1, a 3.5mL roll-on, become a fan of Beauty Is Wellness on Facebook. One fan will be chosen on New Year's Day, January 1, 2011, to start the year with this grounding essential oil blend!
Here is Elizabeth's insight on chakra oil #1:
I love all of the chakra oils but chakra oil #1 is my choice to start the New Year. The reason is because it is grounding, and being grounded is one of the most important things that we can do for ourselves. This is the place where we start to create what we want in our lives. Chakra #1 relates to our life purpose, manifestation, stability and being in a physical body. It is also about being in present time and how we relate to nature and our precious mother earth. It is the beginning of creating balance in our lives and feeling good about ourselves.
What should Beauty Is Wellness readers know about chakras if they are unfamiliar with the concept?
Chakras are energy centers located on the midline of the spine on the front and back of the body. We have 7 main chakras or energy centers starting at the base of the spine, that go up to the top of the head. Chakras assist us in our daily lives to keep us balanced. Each chakra is associated with a specific color, and relates to different organs in the body, and our emotions. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel; they are wheels of energy located on our body.
Essential oils are effective because they are the vital life force or the true essence of the plant or tree. Each individual plant or tree contains a healing energy that is unique to that specific plant or tree. When you use therapeutic grade essential oils the healing passes on to you!
Wishing you quiet time to prepare as you get ready for 2011!
