Essential Pleasures Inc. is up and running


Essential Pleasure Inc. is open and up and running.
Even though the weather has been cold and the snow is falling our shop has been busy with not only on lookers but buyers as well.
We are still in transition selling the last owners stuff as well as our own but we are making our own brands of soap, both natural and magical along with some other goodies on the metaphysical side. Herbs, oils and other natural substances have a long history of use in magick. Their natural energies have been experimented with for so many centuries that those who practice magickal art know almost intuitively what plants correspond best with energies of what magickal need. Always remember that the magick is not in the herb or the scent of the oil but in you, as you set your intention for it to be so. The herb acts as the catalyst to help you focus your energy and because it contains sympathetic energy, it helps you to channel that energy toward it's goal. In some cases the scent of the herb is alone, all that is needed and will provide the trigger for the magick. In our culture it is referred to as Aromatherapy. Aroma magick is created each time you use a particular scent or scent blend for a spell. For instance lavender promotes relaxation and calmness, jasmine is seductive, lemon is invigorating and so on. This is the basis for some really strong magick. The slightest whiff of sandalwood oil mentally transports me back to my earliest times of magick. As a whole we don't even realize that it is magickal if our mindset is not that of being magickal. People all over the world create magick everyday and don't realize the connection. Aromatherapy has proven it self as a very powerful tool and brings about natural healing through the senses aligning you with the universe to be in the flow. When we are in tune with our higher selves we are happy and heal.
You all know that I do healing Chakra meditations, well we are developing a soap for that purpose. It helps you to align your chakras. This soap will stimulate, open, cleanse and balance the chakras from root to crown.
So in moving towards that direction we are working on magickal soaps, bath salts, lotions, shampoos, hair conditioners, scrubs and soaks to mention a few.
We are looking forward to all our new productions and getting things under way. . .
till next time

Introduction
Himalayan Pink Salt is a pure, hand-mined salt that is derived from the foothills of the pristine Himalayan Mountains. Harvested from ancient sea salt deposits, it is believed to be the purest form of salt available. The high mineral crystals range in color from sheer white, varying shades of pink, to deep reds, the result of high mineral and iron content. The Himalayan Pink Salt offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is “Gourmet Food Grade”, the highest quality of Himalayan salt available.
Himalayan Pink Salt is used by holistic chefs, spas, health professionals, and individuals for its range of nutritional and therapeutic properties. Pink salt may be used in the same manner as table salt for culinary dishes and baking, but it is purer and higher in mineral content. Externally, pink salt can be used to stimulate circulation, relax the body, lower blood pressure, sooth sore muscles, and remove toxins from the body. Use Himalayan Pink Salt in bath salt recipes, body scrubs, aromatherapy, homemade soap, and for all types of culinary and spa applications.


Beneficial Properties
Himalayan Pink Salt has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. This salt is recognized for its beautiful pink color, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties. Regular consumption of Himalayan Pink Salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, normalizes blood pressure, and increases circulation and conductivity. It can also assist with relief from arthritis, skin rashes, psoriasis, herpes, and flu and fever symptoms.

History of Salt
Himalayan Pink Salt originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Jurassic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds in the Himalayan foothills, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. Historically, the Himalayan people used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade. Heavily burdened yaks would carry the salt along narrow sloping paths, mountains, and cliffs in order to sell and exchange the salt for other commodities.
Himalayan Pink Salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun.

General Instructions
For culinary purposes, simply dissolve the salt into soups and hot dishes, or place the coarse salt crystals into a salt grinder and mill directly onto dishes.
Medicinally, Himalayan Salt is dissolved in water to create a brine, which is often referred to as “energized water”. This brine is used for a plethora of physical ailments including arthritis, rheumatism, osteoporosis, gout, kidney and gall bladder stones, skin diseases, psoriasis, and for toxin elimination. The proper way to consume the brine is in the morning on an empty stomach, taking one teaspoon of Himalayan Salt Brine with a glass of water. Wait 10 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
Externally, a brine bath is recommended for detoxification, to strengthen the immune system, heal skin diseases, for rheumatism and joint diseases, to balance the skin’s pH, and for recovery after surgery. In order receive the full benefit of a therapeutic salt bath, it is recommended to use 1-2 pounds of salt per bath, and make sure that the water temperature is around 97 degrees Fahrenheit to mimic the body’s temperature. Soak for 20-30 minutes.
Facial steams are recommended for those with asthma, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, and for all acute, chronic, and specific illnesses of the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Simply boil water, add salt to water, cover your head with a towel to create a “tent”, and inhale the vapors for 10-15 minutes.
Poultices made with the brine are used to treat open wounds, and pain from arthritis, gout and osteoporosis. Simply soak a cloth with body temperature brine, and apply the cloth to the treatment area. Wrap this poultice with a dry cloth.

Precautions:
Brine baths are demanding on the circulatory system, and those with weak or poor heart circulation should consult with a doctor beforehand. If a full bath would be too strenuous, then a foot bath may also be used.

Fall Is A Great Time for Meditation


During my many years of meditation, I find it most helpful to enhance my surrounding with subtle light and the aroma of a soothing scent.

We offer a wide selection of electric oil warmers, the adjustable light can be turned down to create a light glow and when using an essential oil such as lavender a relaxing environment can be achieved. What a great way to set the mood for your meditation session.

Fall, a festive time of year
It's hard to believe that the fall of year is upon us and soon the beautiful colors of this season will decorate the landscape. Oh what a sweet time of year it is. The schools are having their home coming dances and celebrations, the harvest is taking place in the fields across the mid west and apple picking is on the agenda. Soon Halloween and the little tricksters will be out in their costumes collecting treats. As we start to settle into the darkness of this time of year we are reminded that we, like everything around us has it's time of rest. The leaves soon will begin to fall, with it comes and the preparation for the stillness of winter to take place. The time change to " fall back" will be on November 2, the first Sunday of the month. And of course we start planning for our Thanksgiving celebrations.

In light of all this slowing down, it's a very good time to think about meditation if you do not meditate on a daily basis, then maybe you could give it a try. This is a very good time of year, before the hustle and bustle of the holidays to enroll in a class or take the time to read about it. Meditation soothes the soul and relieves stress. It helps you to connect to your higher self and calm your nerves. The benefits of meditation are remarkable and a way for you to enjoy this slower time of the year, when you have time to find comfort and give thanks for all you have in your life, your life goes more smoothly.
