Kitchen time… Fall Sale

Fall Sale for cooking fun

Fall’s cool weather seems to bring out my domestic side; cooking and baking are more fun this time of year.

Of you share my urge to get into the kitchen, Inner Oasis’ Fall Sale is the place to begin.

Lekué Bread Maker

Imagine the smell of home-made bread permeating the air as the kids come home from school.  You can do it easily and quickly with Lekué’s Bread Maker.  It’s a silicone bowl to mix in, knead in, and bake in (Silicone takes temps up to 425 degrees).

Hints from my kitchen:  I lowered the oven rack by one.  And for white breads, I open the top the last 10 minutes for a darker crust.  Delicious!

Lekué Bread Maker NOW $17.56!

Dinner?  Lekué’s pasta cooker is a gem.  Use any type of pasta,cover with water, pop into the microwave.  Turn the lid over (lift away from you to avoid the steam) and drain.. then serve in the same bowl you cooked in… Dishwasher safe.

Kambaba Jasper

Kambaba Jasper; a stone of nurturing energies

Kambaba Jasper – also known as Green Stromatolite Jasper, Crocodile Rock or Crocodile Jasper.  

Kambaba Jasper

One of the exotic jaspers, Kambaba Jasper (from Madagascar and South Africa) allows us a glimpse of the origin of life on this planet. A sedimentary stone, Kambaba Jasper is comprised of microcrystalline quartz interlaced with stromatolite, ancient fossilized colonies created by cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and other primeval microorganisims.  These date back more than three billion years and are the oldest known fossils, containing the earliest records of life on earth.

Viewing the origin of life on this planet; Kambaba Jasper

Kambaba Jasper is a stone of peace and tranquility, it’s dark mystic circles and deep green swirls comfort and protect, calms and relaxes. Its slow steady frequency expands the ability to focus and is an aid in meditation. STimulating the Heart Chakra, Kambab Jasper dfraws from its ancient life energies and encourages one to open the heart to lving the slef and others more fully and increase the ability to receive love in return.

There is much much more to this stone. Inner Oasis, thanks to gemstone expert James Goings, JR., has a four page document for those who wish in-depth information.

Himalayan Salt

Salt mine in Pakistan

Himalayan salt, also known as pink salt, is mined in the Punjab area of Pakistan near the base of the Himalayan Mountains.

Thought to be from a primal sea, these salt deposits , many 5,000 feet below the surface of the earth and 100 to 200 million years old, were discovered when Alexander the Great’s army stopped to rest and their horses began to lick the rocks in the area.

Salt caves are used for halotherpay in all parts of the world

Himalyan salt is 99% pure and contains trace minerals of calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, giving it its pink coloring and making Himalayan salt the most nutritious of all salts.

Hand crafted salt lamps clean the air

Himalayan salt lamps and candle holders provide beauty in your home and contribute to healing.  They are known to aid respiratory problems, balance the body’s pH, aid in digestion, act as air purifiers and sleep aids, sinus issues, muscles cramps, regulate water levels and much more.

The tree of life

Inner Oasis carries Himalayan salt lamps, tealights, find ground salt and salt grinders.

 

Palo Santo

Palo Santo, uses and how to

Palo Santo tree from South America

Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. Related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal, it is part of the citrus family carrying notes of pine, mint and lemon.

Palo Santo is wild crafted, sustained, and harvested by a family that has planted over 30,000 trees in the area over the last 10 years. We use the wood of the tree much like sage (to cleans the energy – see below) and from the dead trees or fallen branches, a unique essential oil is made.

Smoking palo santo stick

Like sage and cedar, palo santo is strong medicine. The smoke cleans, or grounds, the air.  This pleasant fresh smelling smoke works well to keep flying insects away – mosquitoes especially, while it raises your vibration and allows for a deeper connection to Source. Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open.

Palo Santo Essential Oil, Young Living

Healing: Palo Santo is used to relieve the common cold, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflamtion and emotional pain.

To light your stick: Use a candle, match or lighter . Hold the stick at a 45 degree angle pointing the tip into the flame. Allow the stick to burn for 30 to 60 seconds, then blow the flame out.  Move the smoke with a feather or your hand.  When finished, place the stick in a fire safe bowl and allow the glow to end on its own.

Shinrin-Yoku

It’s been awhile since I last wrote anything for the blog.  Since the beginning of April I have been traveling. I’ve been to Germany; California; Grants Pass,  Florence and Newport, OR.  And I have one more short tripstill to go.

Each trip has been different and unique with their own lessons and fun times.  That said, all that coming and going is a bit disquieting and tiring and it’s hard to stick to any kind of routine.

During the trip to Florence,  I was with a great group of women.  We stopped at Sweet Creek Falls to try the practice of Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing.  It is simply just being in the forest.  You take your time, walk slowly, breathe, open all your senses and experience being in nature.

Sweet Creek Falls was perfect for this.  There weren’t many other people there, the hike is easy and there are 11 waterfalls to see if you hike the whole trail, about 3 miles round trip.  We took our time, stopped when we felt like it, took pictures, looked at plants and birds, relaxed and enjoyed being out in the forest.

Just that short amount of time spent out in nature and really being present has made such a difference in my attitude,  my overall peace of mind and my sense of joy.  I still have lots to do, but I feel more at peace, unhurried and at ease.

If you get a chance, I highly recommend you try Shinrin-Yoku and soak in the essence of the forest.

Intention

We are now most of the way through March and the Spring Equinox is upon us.

Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?  I usually don’t.  I just kind of wing it, with a vague idea of what direction I want to head during the year.

This year I tried something different.   For me, this year will be full of changes, new starting points, moving forward, personal growth and awakening.  I wanted my theme for the year to be  Intention.  I wanted to set down all the baggage I’ve been bringing forward, leave it behind, let it be finished.

Right away, a beautiful poem by Mary Anne Radmacher showed up on my Face Book page.  It put into words exactly what I was feeling and wanted to do:

She danced.                                                                                                  She sang. She took. She gave.                                                            She loved. She created.                                                                         She dissented. She enlivened.                                                           She saw. She grew. She sweated.                                                     She changed. She learned.                                                                   She laughed. She shed her skin.                                                       She bled on the pages of her days.                                                   She walked through walls.                                                                  She lived with intention.                                                                                              Mary Anne Radmacher

I love to dance, so this spoke to me right away and created a picture in my mind.  I immediately printed it out and taped it up in my kitchen where I see it several times a day.  It energizes and focuses me and reminds to infuse my day with Intention .

Setting down baggage and letting things end is not easy.  It is not an all or nothing decision.  For me it is about letting things end in the form they are currently in, and then feeling if there is a new form taking shape or if there is space created for something completely new to come in.  And it’s a process.

To go along with this idea, I randomly selected three Angel Cards.  I ended up with Freedom  – “You are free to change your experience by changing the criteria upon which you base your decisions.  Let go of old trappings and express your uniqueness”; Forgiveness – “Let go of resentments, judgments and fears and reduce your investment in staying hurt or angry. To forgive is to live in a world that is at peace with human nature”; Enthusiasm – “Be present with zestful alertness! Loosen your constraints and let your passion for life uplift others and generate new opportunities”.

All of this has come together to support me on my journey.  Who knows where this will lead?!

What is your Intention for the year? I hope you enjoyed reading this.  Peace Love & Light
