Some of you may know that I have been working to combine my love for Essential oils with my love for Crystals and Gems. Natural Gemstone’s and Essential oils, are what I call “Earth’s Living Energy”. They are treasures from the Earth.
To combine these two loves, is “The Peaceful Forest”, in memory of our beloved Forest Dog, who we tragically lost in the summer of 2017. His passing was an awful, traumatic, and painful experience for our whole family. The experience brought an overwhelming sense of deep sadness and pain that still can bring me to tears. I feel that the emotional trauma and pain will require a life long journey of healing for all of us.
Forest was a German Shephard/ Husky ‘rescue’ dog. We adopted him at a very early age. We would joke that he was our twins, triplet as he was only a couple of months younger than them. He was a loving dog and a dear member of our family. Living with us on an acreage he quickly assumed his primary role as protector – watching over us, especially the kids. He was physically strong, smart as a whip, clever as a fox and quick as a cat. He was caring, attentive, loyal, steadfast, affectionate, playful, adoring, courageous… and he was ‘no nonsense’.
Creating the business, and naming it after Forest, has been therapeutic for our family. I have been using my love for Natural Gemstones and Essential Oils to help my children and myself through our own personal, unique healing process. We tell stories and reminisce. We laugh and we cry, we hurt, we feel pain, we feel joy, we feel each other’s warmth and comfort. We begin to heal together. We begin to know and accept that Forest, although no longer with us in body, is with us in spirit, and that he is now at rest and at peace.
We have been using what nature has given us and turning Earth’s Living Energy into beautiful healing gifts in the hopes that someone else will feel the benefits and healing properties from this beautiful Earth.
Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years and ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Persians, and Romans have all been documented as proponents of essential oils. The next time you drive by a field of fresh peppermint or hike through a pine forest, breathe deeply—you’re experiencing the soul-soothing power of essential oils. But essential oils are more than nice scents; these powerful plant extracts are your path to natural radiance. Ancient civilizations have also utilized the power of gemstones to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of energy throughout the body. On a cellular level, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you.
Much Love and Peace to you all
