    Feature Article...

    2010 Essential Oil Goddess Survey - Highlights of Results

    Thank you to the wonderful people who responded to my survey call out. It seems most of you read Essential Bliss every editition and find the feature article the most interesting. I am really pleased to hear that as I spend a great deal of time creating an informative read for you.

    It seems that you want more! More essential oil articles and recipes...I hear you! The plan will be to add a summary of these to the ezine with the majority of the article being on my main website. So please look out for the changes over the coming months.

    More information on health issues was also popular so I will plan to have a Health Section too in the near future.

    As I expected, there was a loud and clear message that you want an online course. The most important topics being essential oils for health (it seems you are wanting natural health solutions--well you have come to the right place :)), how to identify high quality essential oils, essential oil safety and perfumes. This will all be covered (and more!) in the online course.

    The online course will be a personal interest course to start with, however I will investigate the possibility of certification, especially for the US readers who require this for career purposes (but I can't promise anything).

    Thank you again to all who participated and provided thoughtful and helpful responses, and for the wonderfully uplifting compliments :) Any time that you wish to share further thoughts or feedback, please do. I will be listening.

    Here's to the wonderful things to come...

    What Has This Got To Do With Emotional Clearing?

    You may have read at the start of this email that this article would be about the survery results (done!) and emotional clearing.

    For me, gaining feedback allows for self-reflection and once this happens we are able to clear out the things that aren't serving us any more.

    An emotional clearing is best done through journaling and meditation. I like to have an A3 blank page in front of me, some coloured crayons (crayons allow for more texture and depth) and some essential oils to support my journey.

    I start by applying some essential oils (see below)to my chakras, the liver (which stores emotions)and sit in a quiet comfortable place. I like to "scan" my body asking "What do I need to know?" Then identifying blocks within my body by examining their colour, texture and shape and what that may feel like to me.

    To process these emotions I used the crayons to draw the colours, lines and shapes onto the paper, adding words as needed. It is amazing the insights that appear using this process.

    You can do this simple drawing meditation anytime you feel you need to clear emotions for whatevver reason. Spend as much time as you need to--you deserve it!

    Only for Essential Bliss readers.

    Idaho Balsam Fir: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


    Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil is one of the most magical essential oils! It is the tree commonly used as a Christmas tree today.

    Traditionally used for respiratory, muscular and rheumatic pain. It can be added into a Raindrop Technique and used as support for sciatica, arthritis, fatigue and throat/lung/sinus infections.

    Here is something special: Video of Young Living's 2009 Balsam Fir Harvest. I had the pleasure of meeting doug at a Young Living Retreat here in Queensland, Australia last year.

    This video shows that Young Living distills Idaho Balsam Fir in January when the weather is bitter cold. The reason is that the trees have a higher oil content during the coldest weather. The oil acts as an antifreeze to protect the tree from the cold and to prevent the needles from falling off the tree. Enjoy the video!

    STOP PRESS: Here is a snippet of this year's (2010) harvest!

    The Essential Oils Desk Reference states that Idaho Balsam Fir is "grounding, stimulating to the mind and relaxing to the body."

    I find when I have too many thoughts and feeling stressed, I place one drop of Idaho Balsam Fir on my heart for a grounding effect to get me back in my body and out of my head!

    Botanical Name:

    Abies grandis


    Could possibly result in skin irritation. Dilution may be necessary.


    Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils uses Idaho Balsam Fir for the following emotions:

    • Inadequate
    • Scattered
    • Separate

    Idaho Balsam Fir is fast becoming one of my favourite essential oils. It has a wonderfully uplifting fragrance (like meditating in the forest!)and blended with frankincense--it changes my mood within seconds!

    It also seems to have skin regenerating properties as I use it in the blend "Believe" as a night serum for my skin. Any spots seems to disappear overnight!

    Well we have come to the end of this edition of Essential Bliss. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it...
