WELCOME from SALLY HOLMES REED

Flower and Energy Essences are a very special type of holistic healing that work with the nature spirits and elementals that give form to all living things. Our nervous system receives and transmits knowledge, accessing the bio-energy/life force that is unique to each flower or natural material. Essences work in subtle, gentle and safe ways on the fields of energy within and around our body, allowing healing to take place at all levels.

The Hawaiian language is beautiful and complex. The word, Akua, has many meanings. I use it here to mean the invisible, creative essence of nature, including the nature spirits that surround us. Please use these Essences with deep love and gratitude for the guidance, love, friendship and total commitment to our healing from the Flower and Nature Spirits.

Allow me to be your guide in choosing and working with the vibrational healing qualities of Flower & Energy Essences. Working co-creatively with the Akua, nature spirits, devas and elementals, each drop of the healing waters of Flower & Energy Essences vibrates with its own positive healing quality.

Molly from Green Hope Farm reminds us to follow our hearts when being guided to take Flower Essences.

It is my greatest pleasure to offer my combined training and experience in holistic hypnosis, vibrational healing, meridian tapping, educational kinesiology, breath awareness and Hawaiian healing to begin the process of change, activate healing and inspire a beautiful life with intuition, expertise, elegance, compassion, grace, truth, love and gratitude.

I hope you benefit from the information shared here. If this is different from what you have been taught, I am sorry. Please enjoy what is of interest to you and leave the rest.

Take care, Sally

Reign Dance massage oils

QUALITIES and GRADES OF MASSAGE/CARRIER OILS
Remember that unrefined oils smell just like the seed or nut from which they came. No smell means that the oil has been refined regardless of what the label states.

The refining process removes all living essentials, colors, phyto-nutrients, vitamins, minerals, phospholipids and essential oils. This is done to increase the shelf-life of the oil and to harvest important chemicals inherent in the oil. One of these commonly harvested chemicals is oleic acid. Oleic acid lowers cholesterol and has the quality of absorption in an oil.

The cost of refinement renders an oil depleted of all nutrient value, but most importantly, the heat involved in refinement creates dangerous acrylimides or plastics. This is also why trans-fats or hydrogenated oils are so dangerous to our well-being and, they are found in all processed foods from the cereals we eat to the oils and lotions we apply to our body, even trans-dermal patches.

Here are the 12 qualities of oil used for both food, medicine and massage. The US Labeling laws are not presently requiring this full level of disclosure on oil labels as does Europe.
1) Certified Organic Food Grade (Non-GMO, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides)
Certified Organic Crude or Unrefined
Certified Organic Partially Refined
Certified Organic Refined
2) Organically grown (GMO in question, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides)
Organic Crude or Unrefined
Organic Partially Refined
Organic Refined
3) Sustainably Grown (GMO in question, fertilizers, but no pesticides)Sustainably Grown Unrefined
Sustainably Grown Partially Refined
Sustainably Grown Refined
4) Commercially Grown (has pesticides, fertilizers and are GMO)Conventionally Grown Unrefined
Conventionally Grown Partially Refined
Conventionally Grown Refined

Certified Organic oils are many times refined! How did we find out this information? We called the refineries ourselves!

We also questioned well known organic companies producing foods and oils and found that they used organic partially processed oils. Many times, doing your own research is necessary when sketchy labeling leaves you with questions.

WARNING ABOUT NATURAL FLAVORS:
How many times have you seen a label that has naturals flavor as an ingredient? In calling the company that makes the item, which we did, we found out that is covers everything from MSG to annatto, both of which can cause migraines.

Partially refined oils have been deodorized, the single most damaging process in the oil refinement process! This process takes place at 450-500 degrees for at least 30-45 minutes, until all living essentials and colors are evaporated. (Convection ovens are used with extremely high steam heat.)

Companies do this for increased shelf-life resulting in better financial profits and to give oils a flat neutral oil base to suite their buyers’ specific needs. This processed and partially processed oil is used in cereals, baked goods and processed foods. Fully refined oils are used for cosmetics, soaps, shampoos, lotions, hormone and nicotine patches, some medicines and most massage oils.
