Hello All

So we have decided to continue blogging on wordpress, mainly because I didn’t want to leave the database here. I think it’s so great to be able to scroll through topics and talk with other writers, moms, and business owners. I just wanted to say hello to all my followers & fellow bloggers out there. I’ve been busy on a new line of products & so haven’t written in awhile, but I’m back at the keyboard.

For those interested, check out the new website: www.daughterotmoon.com

Daughter of the Moon’s official website

It’s still a bit naked, I’ll be adding articles & a fully functioning pay pal store soon enough.

All the best,

Jes

Custom Orders

Within this new line of Aromatherapy Perfumes & Colognes I am pleased to have perfected a few recipes. I continue to try new combinations, as I love listening to the ingredients, being led by them, & having those choices supported by my knowledge of the oils’ chemical compositions & their value in Aromatherapy & Energy & Vibration Healing.

I particularly enjoy crafting fragrances for custom orders because when I create the oil I can see the customer. I see their problems, their desires, their preferences, & so design an oil blend which I know will help that particular person, which will cater to them personally & emphasize their individuality. Because I enjoy it so much I offer custom-designed products for NO extra cost.

Daughter of the Moon’s “Last Kiss” Aromatherapy Perfume

Daughter of the Moon’s ‘Last Kiss’ Aromatherapy blend makes a wonderful Perfume or Cologne. Warm & subtly masculine, this is the perfect cold weather scent that both men & women will enjoy. This is a romantic, full-bodied scent with stand-out notes of Peru Balsam & is filled out by the faint dissonance of Vanilla & Rosemary.

Peru Balsam effects our emotions physically through Energy & Vibration Healing & Aromatherapy reactions. It facilitates love & acceptance of our physical bodies & our sexuality. We experience feelings of warmth, tenderness, & sensitivity towards ourselves & others. Opening ourselves spiritually, we feel safe & present in our world. This recipe is also excellent for skin protection & strengthening as Balsam conditions & soothes rough, cracked skin. 

Into this expertly balanced recipe I also blended in Organic Rosemary, concentrating this recipe with antioxidant power. Rosemary is also helpful spiritually & mentally refreshes, useful to clear the mind of mental fatigue & to clarify our memory.

My ‘Floral Harvest’ Aromatherapy Perfume refreshes you from the inside out. Imagine yourself in a field of flowers, picking a few for a loved one’s bouquet in the misty morning.

Essential oils effect our emotions physically through Energy & Vibration Healing & Aromatherapy reactions. Lavender uplifts the emotions & spirit, & energizes the chakras. Lavender is considered an antidepressant because of its ability to calm & soothe the mind. Lavender relieves fear, invokes acceptance, promotes patience, & has been clinically proven to reduce anger.
 

This recipe is also excellent for the balancing of women’s hormones, as Clary Sage reduces prostaglandin in the body through its diterpenol molecule & as a result reduces PMS stress, mental conditions, & physical cramps. 

I also blended in Aloe Vera, which helps heal the skin. Lavender, when applied to the skin, empowers the body, promoting new skin growth.
