Mama Love Perfume

In a previous article I mentioned that I started doing my current work as a Spiritual Counselor and Flower Essence/Aromatherapy perfume maker directly as a result of the work I did as a Family Consultant. All the perfumes I make were designed for healing benefits. Several of them are appropriate for family caregivers and their patients.

The first one, "Mama Love for Healthy Boundaries," was originally named "For Balanced Caregiving". I specifically designed it with family caregivers in mind. Anyone who spends a lot of time helping others through difficult experiences needs to know how to be loving and kind yet able to remain clear-headed, grounded and firm in their own boundaries. How else can you give to others without depletion? This formula uses two different kinds of Yarrow flower essence (described in the previous article) and Yarrow essential oil, with Sandalwood and Patchouli.

"Mama Love for Releasing Worry and Fear" has been one of my best-sellers. It's a good one for both caregivers and patients. (Be sure to try a small amount first to be sure.) Try rubbing some on bunched up shoulders or back muscles, pour a tiny amount into a bath, or add several drops to a spray bottle with water and mist yourself or your patient. By the way, I have no idea if using this perfume as a spray with an agitated patient would help calm them down. If you'd like to try it send me an email. If you have a patient who tends to have episodes of extreme anxiety and agitation I'll send you a bottle free of charge as long as you promise to let me know how it works for them.

"Releasing Worry and Fear" can be a great sleep formula if anxiety is at the root of your insomnia. Another great sleep formula is "Mama Love for Restful Sleep." It's not like a sleeping pill -- for most people it won't put them right down. And for chronic cases of insomnia it really makes a difference if you use it twice a day -- once in the afternoon and then again before bed. The effect accumulates with regular use but it is not recommend as a daily practice for more than three weeks at a time. (It's wise to take a break from ALL aromatherapy products for a little while from time to time to gauge how your body is handling it and whether you even need it anymore.) "Restful Sleep" contains Chamomile, Nicotiana and Spikenard for their powerful healing effects.
