Jasper Diffuser Pendant

‘Wherever you go, so goes your aromatherapy.’

On Saturday, August 18th, 2018, this piece will be on display at the Guelph Farmers’ Market. If you would like to see this piece in person, drop-by.

Bear Jasper sodalite rhodonite

I imagine this one-of-a-kind piece of Jasper is in the shape of a Bear or maybe a Bison.  Layered with a stainless steel bead, sodalite bead, rhodonite bead and the all important lava bead.

The lava bead has pores that ‘hold’ your essential oil blend.  Wherever you go, you will have your aromatherapy with you, helping you, throughout your day.

Smelly Dog Grooming Spray

Smelly Dog Grooming Spray in Woodsy is the original aromatherapeutic blend; and its namesake, Piper (see below), my dear black lab companion was its inspiration, for indeed, he would get quite smelly.  He swam almost everyday in local lakes and rivers. His undercoat would ‘hold’ water resulting in that special ‘dog smell’.

Smelly Dog Piper
Smelly Dog Grooming Spray

When I shopped at a local pet store for a grooming spray, I found out a number of disturbing things. First, at the time, most were made with synthetic fragrances.  Disturbing because of how sensitive a dog’s nose is – it did not make sense to me to use potentially toxic synthetic fragrances on my dear companion.  Second, I learned that the makers of these types of products are not required to include an ingredient list. What!!?  The sales clerk was quite indignant with my questions to boot!

The very handsome Piper.

Necessity is the mother of invention’— my non-sudsing grooming spray is a natural & safe alternative to soapsuds bathing & conventional pet-store products. Smelly Dog is gentle on you & your pet, biodegradable, and free of fillers and synthetic ingredients. I handcraft in small batches to ensure quality & freshness; I blend the essential oils at a safe concentration level for your pup’s nose.

Smelly Dog Woodsy helps calm an anxious fur-baby.

It also helps condition the fur and skin, and acts as a flea & insect deterrent.

As a bonus, if your dog has the tendency to make your bed its own, simply use Smelly Dog as a linen freshener – it works wonders! Smelly dog no more!

LJ Turtle Aromatherapy • Diffuser Bracelet • Wear Your Aromatherapy in Style

Gently add 1 drop of your LJ Turtle essential oil diffuser blend (gift with each piece of jewelry) to a lava rock bead.

Allow the essential oil blend to dry. Blot and wipe off any excess. Avoid getting essential oil blend on skin or clothes. Re-Apply as needed.

It is not recommended to wear your bracelet when playing sports, sleeping, swimming or showering.

Caution: Your bracelet is NOT meant to be used with a diluted essential oil blend; the carrier oil will ‘gunk up’ the lava bead.

Aromatherapy Insight Reading

I’m enjoying working with Jennifer Jefferies’ Aromatherapy Insight Cards.  I took her ‘crash-course’ introductory class at this year’s conference of the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists.

My learning curve is still quite steep, but I am having fun and gaining great insights.

AIC June 19 2018
Jennifer Jefferies’ Aromatherapy Insight Cards • Reading by LJ Turtle Aromatherapy 

This reading was bang-on for where I am in the moment and to be honest, a bit brutal 🙂

German Chamomile: ‘Letting go’ • For me, especially letting go of the past and the things I cannot change.

Eucalyptus Radiata: ‘Integration’ • For me, releasing fears and negative beliefs so I can move into my calling – that is, integrate all the wonderful experiences and teachings I have had the privilege to receive – and put these to masterful use.

Cinnamon Leaf: ‘Coldness and Introversion’ • Isolating is my go-to strategy when life gets overwhelming and ‘too tough’ for me to handle. I shall work towards practices of self-care rather than introversion and isolation.

I blended 2 drops of each essential oil in my 5 ml roller-ball and topped it off with some apricot carrier oil.  A wonderful and interesting synergy of aroma!

If you would like to see these beautiful cards in-person, I’ll have them with me this Saturday at the Guelph Farmers’ Market.
