MORPHOLOGICALLY Melissa McGill grew up in the interior of British Columbia with parents who, impassioned by the spirit of the era, had left New York City in 1970 to tune in, fall out, and live off the land. They turned a barn into a house and raised children who played in the mud, had chickens as friends, and would stay up late to catch fruit bats with butterfly nets. They ate what came out of the ground, watched the changing of the seasons, followed the waxing and waning of the moon, and read the farmers almanac like an astrological chart for the upcoming year. For 17 years, Melissa has loved and shared aromatherapy with as many people as she can, and has never lost her reverence for nature and the power of it to heal, uplift, and shift energy. She approached educating herself about aromatherapy from an all-in, experiential and passionate standpoint, the magnitude of what was possible unfolding before her.
Golden Amber starts with Peru balsams’ mild, rich aroma that is woody, vanilla-like and calming. Adding Frankincense and Amyris further warms this blend, creating a comforting and heart chakra opening atmosphere.
Himalayan Pink Salt is used to stimulate circulation, relax the body, lower blood pressure, soothe sore muscles, and remove toxins from the body.
Add 2-3 good handfuls of salt to hot running water and soak for 20-30 minutes. For a ritual or spiritually cleansing bath it is recommended to not use soap, bath oils or shampoo. Relax and enjoy.
Palo Santo, or 'holy wood', is a mystical tree native to South America. It's closely related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. Palo Santo is often burned during ceremonies by Shamans for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. It is said to enhance creativity and bring good fortune. It creates a calming, fresh smell reminiscent of smoke with hints of mint and citrus that work well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects.
Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out.
1 bundle contains 4 sticks of Palo Santo.
