Another week goes by and the mood seems to be “shabby chic” pink flowers. Flowers are one of the natural ingredients in essential oils, a true ingredient for aromatherapy products. Creating an aromatherapy experience for our customers in the likes of Bath & Body Works, the aromatherapy experience is all about pink flowers this week. Now for our “Flower of the Week.”

Our flower of the week is Water Lillie’s, lotus blossoms. These flowers were actually grown in a bath tub. So “shabby chic.” And what does flowers in a bath tub mean to you? Total relaxation. The purpose of these “flowers of the week” and “Flower Diaries” itself is to show you how important it is to relax within a day. We get lost when those of us that love flowers view new flowers we’ve never seen before for the first time. Another tale of relaxation this week. Remember to take at least one day to relax this weekend. Happy Reading!

Flower Diaries: A Seed Is Planted

image

We approach another week focused on Aromatherapy from the likes of Bath & Body Works. A new inspirational flower is introduced each week, named, and an inspirational description for the flower is provided for the designated “Flower Of The Week”. Inspiration comes from within. Each flower gives us a reason to get better. What do we have this week? The “Flower Of The Week” is here.

“A Seed Is Planted” is the name of this week”s  flower . The flower capsules seed pods represent us growing under the right supervision and nourishment. We need nourishment to grow. Once a seed is planted, that flower becomes the talk of those who see beauty just as I do…in its purest form. A man that doesn’t believe in spiritual growth is not focusing on his overall well being. Every good and positive emotion begins with the spirit. We want our spirits to be in excellent shape. This is the core of the growth cycle. Ultimately, you have to make the decision to give up the things that causes stress, depression, anxiety and other health care problems. We are responsible for the state of our well being.  Therefore, we must plant the right seeds within us…positive seeds.

Happy fourth of July Weekend, everyone.  Like or Share this posting if you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks for reading!

Morning Dew

image

The day has begun. You wake up. Open the blinds and look out into the world with sleepy eyes. Focusing on the sky which is the main resource of nourishment to the world, to nature, because of the rain. Paying close attention to modern day inventions: cars, the newspaper on the porch across the street at your nearest neighbor house, the basketball that was left in the yard when your kids played with it yesterday. But beneath the basketball is the freshly cut green grass. It has a coating this morning….dew. You see it. And you fall in love with the beauty of it all on how it got there. Straight from God and his hand. You admire it for awhile with joy. Then you climb back into bed for a couple of minutes to dream. And to thank God for the captivating beauty in morning dew- “The Candle Lady”

Flower Diaries: Flower Of The Week

Kathryn’s Scented Gifts created Flower Diaries for the purpose of creating an aromatherapy experience on our site. The need to take your mind to another place when life seems to get you down cannot be ignored. I chose “flower photos” to inspire others because I know what they do for me when I look at them. Imagine.

Our “Flower Of The Week” is the “Blooming Bleeding Heart Flower.” I love that title. It reminds me of the stages of the human life cycle. We are conceived. We are born. We are raised. We grow- “The Candle Lady”

Do Readers Scan Blogs?

image

Do readers prefer scanning over reading blogs? Yes they do. With the busy lives that we live each day, readers simply don’t have time to read through all the information they come across. So they scan articles, blogs, etc. This gesture is not meant to offend the author, but it is just what millions do online. Blame it on the fact that no one really reads anymore. But there is a way to get readers to read your blogs instead of scanning. Here is a list of a few suggestions.

image

Keep the length of your posts short and sweet. At a minimum 400-600 words.
Use subheadings. Subheadings creates an easy flow for readers when reading your content. It also helps break your material up so that you can hit all important points of your topic.
Use numbered lists. Creates excitement for readers who read your material.
Use bullet points. Utilization of these helps you improve your writings.
Formatting. Using bold and italic writing is favorable when writing
Short paragraph. It’s a fact that readers don’t read as much these days.  So capture their attention with short paragraphs about 3-4 sentences in length.
Communicate with your readers like you talk. There are formal and informal ways to write articles. But the same approach should not be taken when writing blogs. Write, like you talk. This holds a reader’s interest.
Give readers an opportunity to participate. Allowing them to leave comments and share your work through social media gives readers a voice as well.
Link to quality content. Try linking to some of your best material. Readers enjoy clicking through blogs. Keep them active an interested in the discussion at hand.
Go against the grain. Although short posts are ideal for the reader that prefers scanning. Still, there is still a place on the internet for formal writing. So please include lengthy articles in your blogs as well.

No one can argue that readers prefer scanning over reading. So make your blogs fun and interesting by incorporating all what I’ve listed within this post. You can win the reading war, writers. You just have to be dedicated. Give the readers what they want. Write on topics that they can relate to.

Aromatherapy Stories: Aromatherapy Defined

image

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to heal in several ways. Essential oils can be inhaled by breathing in the oils, rubbing the oils into the skin, and or rarely taking them by mouth. Essential oils help relieve stress, tension, anxiety, depression, etc. It also helps fight infections, but no scientific evidence has been found to support this belief.

Essential Oils And Their Purpose

image

Essential oils are natural extracts that are extracted from the roots of plants, seeds, leaves, and flowers. Each oil has its purpose for healing. Such purposes are treating infections or swelling. Orange blossom oil is a prime example. Its purpose is calming. Aromatherapists knowledge of essential oils purpose today was not known during aromatherapy beginnings. What were the trial and errors? What were the drawbacks of aromatherapy?

These types of oils have been used for healing over 6,000 years. The healing properties of lavendar oil can be used to treat a burn is one remedy. In historical times, essential oils were used by the ancient Chinese, Romans, Indians, and Egyptians. Perfumes, cosmetics, and drugs were products of these oils during those times. History got ahead of itself. In World War 1, in 1928, aromatherapy science was founded by, Gattafosse. In the 1950s’ aromatherapy entered a new realm, it was used by nurses, massage therapists, beauticians, and doctors.

Today, many candles, lotions, perfumes, and beauty products contain these oils. However, their are some synthetic properties being used as well in these same products, but they do not share the same attributes as essential oils.

Aromatherapy At Its Best

image

Aromatherapy is used in various settings such as hospitals and spas. The benefits of aromatherapy are relieving pain, relaxation, and improving mood. Bath And Body Works and Victoria’s Secret are companies that utilize aromatherapy to satisfy their customer needs to find ways to relax and relieve stress by way of smell. Its good to know that natural properties are being used in their products.
