A couple of weeks ago I led my first solo workshop at The Habitat Space in Melbourne (massive high fives all around). Titled Soulful Living: The Art of Self Care, the workshop was an exploration into how we can define living soulfully for ourselves and how we can use a self care routine to explore this path – every day.
In preparing for the workshop, I connected with Alison of Alyssum Alchemy, who’s passion for the healing powers of oils began over 13 years ago. This led her down the path of alternative therapies of Energy Healing, Meditation facilitation and Reiki Master. Just over 3 years ago, she brought her passion and creative energy together to blend a range of mists, remedy oils, facial nectar and bath soaks under the brand Alyssum Alchemy.
Alison believes in sharing products “which celebrate the natural gifts of the plant and mineral kingdom and which gently encourage us to reconnect back to ourselves, the moon and to this magical planet”
Sacred Space Meditation Mist
Alyssum Alchemy’s Sacred Space meditation mist is unique blend of herbs, resins, crystals and woods. Derived from Ancient times, the mist is designed specifically for the modern human to create a calm and clear state before commencing a seated practice or ritual.
Crystal infusions of Labrodite – for space clearing and Tibetan Quartz for dissolving energy blockages and purifying energies while the herbs Lemon and Rosemary allow the user to become centred in their mind and body, and lavender to ground you if you’re feeling overstimulated.
I love this mist for it’s delicate aroma that does not overpower the senses, allowing you to centre yourself calmly before you enter your meditation or yoga practice. For someone like myself that is both sensitive to artificial perfumes and loves a natural scent, this mist is ideal. The mist is a perfect compliment to create ritual around my meditation practice each morning. I begin by lighting a candle, misting myself and the room before taking a seat.
I also used this mist as an integral part of my recent workshop – The Art of Self Care before we entered into a vision exercise. With this in mind, it would be a perfect compliment for any natural therapists, yoga or meditation teachers.
Contains Certified Organic, plant derived, eco certified ingredients and house in Miron glass to prolong the life and energies contained within the mist.
Clarity Remedy Oil
This select blend of uplifting oils has been specifically crafted to provide both a sense of clarity, calmness – Mint, Lemon and Lavender, and Australian Sandlewood and Fragonia for relaxation and calming the mind.
According to Alyssum Alchemy, what made this oil the perfect compliment for my recent workshop, was that the blend of oils “invites clarity, vitality, creativity, inspiration and motivation, all geared around setting goals, new beginnings and following your dreams”.
Unlike the mist, this is an oil-based product and can be massaged into pulse points on the wrist and neck. I used this post meditation as a little pick me up, but you can also apply it before work, a meeting or when embarking on a creative project.
Contains Certified Organic ingredients.
