An exercise in creating energetic synergies!
Do you want to create synergies that mirror the energetics of a person, place, theme or circumstance? This book will show you how to get to the heart of the issue with your synergy!

My purpose in writing this little book is to illustrate how one can create unique individual synergies that mirror the essence of an individual, place, event or theme. Each person, place, situation or theme is a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses, abilities and attributes, and it has been my experience that u sing an essential oil synergy that has been created to mirror a person, place, theme or situation, will work at a completely different level and appears to be able to penetrate directly to the heart of the issue.

I came up with the idea of using the twelve signs of the Zodiac as the examples of how to blend energetically for a person, place, theme or situation. Each sign is a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses, abilities and attributes, and as many people are already somewhat familiar with them, it seemed to me that they would serve as a good example of how to look at information and create an energetic blend around it.

The resulting e-book, over 65 pages and full of information, is divided into three sections:

  • Section One deals with basic aromatherapy, the ways in which essential oils are used and their safety precautions.
  • Section Two has a page for each of the twelve sun signs and includes a lot of information pertaining to that sign as well as an outline of the personality traits, strengths and weaknesses attributed to that sign. It is here too that one will find the unique Lord and Lady essential oil synergy especially created for that sign.
  • Section Three consists of thirty-five one page mini essential oil profiles. These are the oils from which the Lord and Lady Synergies were created and they can serve as a basis for information to draw from when creating other essential oil energetic synergies. This section also has an example of how to take the information outlined in Section two and marry it to essential oils outlined in Section three to come up with a unique energetic essential oil synergy.   $10.00 CDN

Rudolf Steiner, the Father of Anthroposohy, said that “All our thoughts are transformed smells. Man is such an accomplished thinker because he experiences in the brain.” He also said that the physical body gives us our sense of ‘touch’, the etheric body our sense of ‘taste’, the astral body our sense of ‘smell’ and the self our sense of ‘warmth‘. If you want to know which essential oils to use to assess these subtle energies this little book may be just what you need.

When we look at the use of aromatic plants and oils over the centuries, we find that they were often used for their more subtle properties. Whether they were used to interact with the soul and the Divine or whether they were used, as in Magic Potions, to interact on a more earthly plane, essential oils and essential oil blends when used with intent for specific purposes have been found to be very powerful.

We use essential oils subtly for a number of different reasons whether it is because we are interested in soul growth, personal development, or because we want to try and exert a beneficial influence on what will happen in our lives next, essential oils can be very powerful and may be just what we need to take that next step on our path of personal and spiritual growth.  This e-book contains Subtle Energy Profiles on 96 essential oils!  CDN $5.00
