“Because trees and humans are so closely related biologically, it is not surprising to discover that the essential oils produced by a tree's immune system are directly beneficial for our immunity. When we diffuse conifer oils into our homes, we are not just bringing the beautiful fragrance of the forest indoors: we are also surrounding ourselves with a cloud of disease-fighting molecules created by the trees immunological intelligence.” - David Crow 🌿Today is the last day to get a free Aromamist diffuser on orders $140+ with promo code DIFFUSER (link in bio). #trees#immunity#communityimmunity#tree#forest

Chapter 2, "What's in the bottle?" Nature's Essential Oils; Aromatic Alchemy for Well-Being. "When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world." -John Muir . . "Hold it up to the light and the liquid inside an amber or cobalt bottle pretty much looks like any other. But this magic elixir is the end product of a series of events. Surprisingly, many people, including those already familiar with essential oils, do not know how an oil is produced, nor from which plants they come. Equally stunning is how few are aware that the sun and the moon, where a plant is grown, and when it was harvested all affect the potency of an oil. This is what one of my mentors, herbalist/aromatherapist David Crow, meant when he asked, "What's in the bottle?" Those simply using essential oils from a bottle, with no thought to where they come from, are woefully disconnected from the magic of nature's gifts." . . . . . @w.w.norton @wwnortonuk #naturesessentialoils#cherthefire#getcreative#aromatherapy#essentialoils#davidcrow @floracopeia
A distinctly different embodiment of jasmine- one that is very similar to the soft and balanced aroma of garden jasmine blooms. It is a gorgeous alchemy of superior grade jasmine in sustainable Australian sandalwood. Romantic, sensual, euphoric, ephemeral and soft. This small-batch handcrafted roll-on perfume was lovingly created and aged in-house by David Crow. A true natural attar in the classical lineage of pure botanical perfumes. A health promoting alternative to immune compromising synthetic perfumes.

Throughout the ages, Frankincense has been highly valued for its medicinal powers and spiritual benefits. 🌿Oleoresins are a part of a trees immune system, secreted to protect it from herbivores, insects, and fungal pathogens. Resins also speed the healing of wounds to the tree, which is why the sap flows when the bark is cut. In a similar way, frankincense has medicinal functions related to enhancing human immunity and supporting rapid healing. Frankincense has been used historically for treating respiratory infections, regenerating the skin, and for treating bruises and discomfort. Frankincense is the most universally known temple incense. The resin gives a sweet pine-like smoke, which purifies the atmosphere and uplifts the spirit. How can we enjoy frankincense? A few drops of high-quality frankincense oil can be applied to the palms, rubbed together, and inhaled. This produces an instantaneous clearing of the sinuses and a strong activation of the prana entering the brain and lungs. Frankincense essential oil can be mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut or sesame and applied to sore joints and stiff muscles. A few drops of the oil can be sprinkled on a hot wet towel and applied to the chest for opening and stimulating the respiratory system. When gently heated, the resin purifies the atmosphere and uplifts the spirit. 🙌🏼-An except from David Crow’s comprehensive article on Frankincense (link in bio).

An excerpt from David Crow’s beautiful book, In Search of the Medicine Buddha. Enjoy! “The healing of humanity's ancient wounds and the rebirth of Dharmic culture rests upon ecological renewal. Environmental restoration is a unifying purpose that brings together families of diverse racial, ethnic, economic, and religious backgrounds in a common struggle against the threat of biospheric collapse. By following the Medicine Buddha's wordless commandment to plant trees, cleanse the skies and seas, and harvest the fruits of sattvic planetary caretaking, the divisive conflicts carried through the ages can be forgotten. As communities and nations join hands in mutual concern for plants, animals, and coming generations, the long history of inflicting pain on others may cease, and truly spiritually reawaken.”

As the new year approaches, we can begin to set goals around upgrades we would like to see in our life. Plant medicine can play a significant role in helping us to realize our dreams. Specifically, ‘Power Plants’ can be used to attract, catalyze and manifest our purpose and desires. For example, spritz Inner Star Misting Potion on skin and aura to beautify the complexion and activate the self-love and confidence needed for a fulfilling life. One can burn frankincense resin or Palo Santo to create a clear, elevated space for mediation and ritual. Gardenia Attar beautifully helps lighten the mind and mood and helps attract blessings.
