Rose geranium carries the energy to
grant the ability to look at your feelings and opinions with an open
heart and calm demeanor. It can help you stay alert and conscious to all
of life. It can remind you to count your blessings, however small or
inconsequential they may seem compared to your obstacles. It can take
effort, but it is essential to focus on what is going right, rather than
what is going wrong if you want to attract more of that good feeling.
When you begin to feel a drain from
life, it's time to make a change, even if it's just an attitude
adjustment. The universe supports you. When you speak your intention,
your word is the Universal call to action. You can manifest your dreams
and desires when you focus on what you want, blessings and love: love
for yourself and all your foibles. Love for the world and all Her
people. Love for Life and the Mystery Within.
As you make this salve, stir in a
clockwise direction, thinking about all the things that are going well
in your life. Say
I attract to me positive energy
Focusing on what's good will bring more to me
This I make true, three times three times three
3 tablespoons rose geranium infused
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon shea butter
2 tablespoons beeswax
4 tablespoons glycerin
10 drops rose geranium essential oil
2 drops of clove essential oil
Fill the lower part of a
double-boiler or small saucepan with water. Melt the coconut oil and
beeswax in a bowl over the saucepan of simmering water. Add the almond
oil. Add the glycerin, slowly, until the mixture is creamy. Add the
essential oil, stir well. Pour into small clean jars. This salve is
great for nail cuticles!
Note: Once you've used all the oil you need for this recipe, you can use
the remaining oil to condition your hair. If available, add coconut oil.
Coat your hair in the oil. Either work the oil to the ends of your hair
with your fingers or a comb. Braid your hair, drape a towel over your
pillows and keep the oil in overnight, or as long as possible. The oil
will come out in the next wash, leaving your hair luxurious and smooth.
