GemSpot: Goddess Divine!

On May 5, 2014, in Colors, Essential Guide to Crystals, heart, Pink, by MargaretAnnLembo

Love, Sweet Love – in honor of Mothers everywhere!

Affirm! I am blessed with nurturing vibrations wherever I go! I am gentle with myself. I recognize that kind-heartedness brings about better life situations. I am kind and compassionate with myself and others. I enjoy loving relationships.

Align with the Divine Mother, the highest form of motherly love. The Divine feminine is within everyone regardless of gender. During the month of May (and always) connect with Kuan Yin, Mother Mary, Isis, or any other highly regarded spiritual icon of feminine wisdom and truth. Pink calcite is the gemstone for energetically connecting with the Divine Mother, unconditional love, and Archangels Auriel and Chamuel.

Pink calcite activates loving thoughts. It transforms less ideal mental musings into thoughts of self-love, thereby increasing your ability to love, and receive love from, others. Hold this stone when you are concentrating on thinking positive and uplifting thoughts about yourself and others.

Do you need more sweetness in your life? Are you gentle with yourself in your words and thoughts?

Pink Calcite and the Divine Goddess bring us this guidance: Treat yourself with kindness. When you treat yourself well, you can cultivate loving friends, family, and environment. Be your own best friend, and be the best friend you can be to others. Love and accept your emotional nature.

Pink-Calcite-cr

Activate the opening of your heart chakra so that you can release prior feelings of hurt or fear. Feelings of anger and frustration can be assuaged through focused intention.

By the way, pink calcite is a good stone for children who cry or whine often. Give one to a grumpy friend and watch his or her energy transform.

Everything is energy including our thoughts, words, actions, and feelings. All energy vibrates, is sent out and returns to us . . . and therefore, the creation of personal reality. The law of attraction vibe includes all those energies as well as belief systems that are unconsciously running in the background of our consciousness.

Imagination and self-awareness are the keys to unlocking a happy and healthy life. Building a strong sense of self through self-confidence is key to remembering your contract with the Divine.

Start where you are
Discover your own personal truth can be a beautiful journey.  Step forward to uncover what belief systems and programs are running in your subconscious. Use spiritual tools and step by step you will realize the shift has happened and life is better.  Here are some guide posts to help you along the way

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the chakras – the energy centers of your consciousness. Through this awareness, you will understand yourself and also others which makes life so much easier.
  • Learn how to incorporate spiritual wisdom into everyday living through color, gems, aromatherapy and the power of positive thought. Decide to dress with consciousness, eat with consciousness and establish clear intentions.
  • Release of unwanted behaviors and belief systems by cutting the cords of your past. Sometimes we realize we must step away from some people who we thought were authentic colleagues and friends.
  • Think Good Thoughts! Use replacement thoughts to help you transform your reality. Here is one to help youI magnetically attract peaceful and thoughtful people into my circle. My friends and family are supportive and happy for all the good that occurs for me. I am prosperous and successful . . . and appreciative!
  • Become aware of all levels of your consciousness – mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Self-awareness is the key to self-actualization.
  • Let yourself connect with angels, spirit guides, and loved ones on the other side. Believe in your own intuition. Everyone is intuitive and that include YOU!!
  • Meditate. Contemplate.  Have fun with crystals and create a crystal grid  in your own home, office and sacred spaces to set your intentions to activate and remind you of what you DO want vs. what you don’t want.

USE YOUR IMAGINATION!Green chrysanthemum over Magenta Background
The not-so-secret key is your imagination. Anything that you can imagine, passionately desire,and ardently work toward  must come to pass. Become limitless in your potential because you ARE limitless. Your reality, joy, and happiness are always up to you!

Aroma-Energetics: Essential Oils, Flower Essences & Gemstone Tinctures with Margaret Ann Lembo
http://bit.ly/1hnwVsd

Visit http://www.margaretannlembo.com/schedule/ for Margaret Ann’s full schedule.

 

Once upon a time, not all that long ago, a little girl in Brooklyn played with angels and fairies in her back yard. In the garden she spent hours with sweet peas, lily of Everlasting  Sweet Peathe valley, roses, hyacinth, irises, basil, peppermint, eggplant, peppers and tomatoes. She talked to the plants as her mother taught her, pulled weeds from the garden, watered and fertilized and connected with the vibrations of the earth. Imaginary friends and angels lived with the plants, flowers, fragrance and fairies and life was good.

Fast forward to South Florida and this girl is now a woman still playing with the earth and the elementals through color, crystals, aromatherapy, flower essences, angels and the power of positive thought. Perhaps needless to say, this woman is me, Margaret Ann, and I still get to play in the garden. Now I help my clients weed their consciousness of out-dated thoughts and belief systems to help them live a happier life and move forward to their life purpose.

In private sessions - whether it is a regression therapy, an Aura Photo Gemstone Session, or an event - online and live - I am blessed to be able to facilitate processes to shift people out of what they don't want to be experiencing (mental, physical, spiritual and emotional challenges) to what they DO want to be experiencing.

My favorite tools are the same ones I grew up with in that garden in my backyard in Brooklyn. The tools have evolved and appear a bit different today. The garden in my store, The Crystal Garden, and all the locations where I make appearances around the world. (Where ever I go . . . there I am in my spiritual garden sharing my sacred space.) The power of technology event allows us to "meet online" through webinars and recorded events and classes. Now I offer avenues for learning through the Academy of the Spiritual Arts which is a membership website anyone can attend from where ever they are when ever they want. Recently I made my Chakra Awakening Crystal Healer Course available online. Now the six hour course is ready to purchase and one can learn from the comfort of their home or office.Chakra_7group_web

Today I use the power of color to help people transform their reality. In some cases, the color is found in gemstones and crystals through jewelry and pocket stones.  In other cases, my recommendation is to dress with consciousness and decorate with intention so all aspects of one's environment is a reminder of one's goals, dreams, and intentions. The use of the olfactory sense is powerful so the potential for transformation through aromatherapy appears limitless. It's so amazing to charge up what would be ordinary aromatherapy by adding energetics - like gemstone tinctures, Holy Water, and other charged water. That's part of the amazing line of essential oil sprays that I've created. (I say I created them but it sure does feel like the heavenly realm has their celestial hand in dropping those ideas and formulas into my consciousness!)

I am so grateful for the the work I get to do on the planet. The joy of helping people shift their reality into one of joy and happiness is beyond compare. For the past two days I have been doing Aura Photography Gemstone Oracle Sessions. Helping people recognize their magnificence was the theme of my weekend. Some shed tears of relief, others tears of grief, and with some looks of amazement and acknowledgement that their potential is unlimited. It's true! Your potential is unlimited.

Remember - you are a swirling rainbow of colors. The energy of your chakras, energy centers of your body, are creating your auric field. Your energy is emanating and radiating all your thoughts, feelings, and dreams. As you broadcast these "unseen" vibrations it is creating your reality because the energy you emanate magnetizes whatever you believe, think and feel. With that being said I say . . . OK I shout: THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU DO WANT, NOT WHAT YOU DON'T WANT!!

Align with the Divine using Aromatherapy Chakra Spray

On March 28, 2014, in Uncategorized, by MargaretAnnLembo

Crown Chakra Spray

The Crystal Garden Brand Chakra Sprays are made of high quality therapeutic grade essential oils, Gemstone Tinctures, Holy Waters, Sacred Site Essences, Bach Flower Essences and Positive Affirmations.CrownChakra_Web

I developed the Crown Chakra Spray to help you energize your halo with white light. Using visualization and a bit of belief you can increase your connection with Divine Consciousness and the ability to channel and access miracles. Now I say that I “developed” it but I must give credit to the aromatherapy angels and muses that deliver these formulas and recipes to me. I’ve observed that I am primarily clairaudient which means I “hear” which provide clues as to which essential oils to use and Bach Flowers to incorporate.

Some of the essential oils in this proprietary blend include my Lift Me Up! Blend, patchouli, and organic rose water. Lift Me Up! Blend is a formula (also available as Bliss Mist) which I originally received to help those suffering from lack of self-esteem and encourage those feeling blue or depressed.

Every spray includes Bach Flower Essences which are vibrational medicine to aid in rebalance your mind and emotions. For example, Cerato is included to aid in relieving doubts and improving belief in your ability to receive guidance. There are 5 more Bach Flower essences along with Holy Waters and Sacred Site essences to encourage tranquility, inner knowing, self-confidence, blessing, abundance, spiritual guidance and so much more.

Gemstone Tinctures are also part of the vibrational mix. Scolecite to improve connection with the angels as well as Rainbow Moonstone and various other gems are energetically included to activate your balanced connection with spirit.

Divine Mind and connection to spirit is available to every single one of us. When you use this spray, state your intention to establish what you desire. I recommend this affirmation.

Affirm: "I am aligned with the Divine. Access to higher wisdom and knowledge is mine. I am a miracle worker."

 

 

 

Heart Chakra Spray

“The heart is the bridge between your lower three chakras and your upper three chakras. It is the place of the “I Am” presence, the Christ consciousness and the Buddha consciousness. The heart center connects us with kindness, love, compassion, tolerance, patience, understanding and who we truly are. It is a vibration of love in alignment with goodness and gratitude. A person with a balanced heart center is someone who is friendly, compassionate, empathetic and nurturing.

Green and pink energy, or the heart chakra, is located at the center of your chest. The primary color is green. The vibration of pink at the heart is the blended energy of the red from the root chakra and white from the crown chakra. There is no complementary color per se—the colors are simply green and pink.”

   ~~Excerpt from Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy and the Power of Positive Thought.

Each of the Chakra sprays and many of my line of sprays has the following components to make it an Aroma-Energtic Spray:

  • proprietary blend of high quality Crystal Garden brand essential oils
  • Gemstone Tinctures
  • Holy Waters
  • Sacred Site Essences
  • Bach Flower Remedies
  • Positive affirmations+

Let’s start with the positive affirmation that matches this Aroma-Energetic Spray.

Affirm!

“I am love. All that surrounds me and all that is attracted to me is love.”

 This formula has a rose, citrus and fresh flower blend of medical grade oils. These essential oils activate a sense of comfort, clarity, and peace.Heart_Web

The Gemstone Tincture combination includes green aventurine, magenta agate, pink opal, and rose quartz. These stone are beneficial for opening the heart to give and receive love, caring, kindness and compassion.

Bach Flower Essences incorporated are water violet to encourage feeling connection with others. It helps assuage feelings of loneliness. The gorse flower essence increases hope for love and blessings. The chicory flower essence helps you release, let go, and live and let live. The other essences in this proprietary blend helps one feel confident in their decisions without feeling that goodwill will be lost.

By combining the Holy Waters I’ve included in the blend along with the above essential oils and energetic components bring aid to opening this crucial part of our consciousness.

"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
― John Lennon

With Valentine's Day on the way, use this spray as a gift to yourself, others . . .  the world to bring more love into your life.

It is possible to use essential oils to realign and balance your energy  - physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. The new Chakra Sprays were just launched by me under my brand, The Crystal Garden. These sprays premiered this past weekend at a trade show in Orlando and were very well received.

Chakra_7group_web

Over the next few weeks I will be explaining more about each Chakra Spray and why the components were chosen and why they work. The formulas or recipes are received through Divine Inspiration combined with my experience and knowledge of essential oils and vibrational healing.

Each spray has the following components to make it an Aroma-Energtic Spray:

  • proprietary blend of high quality Crystal Garden brand essential oils
  • Gemstone Tinctures
  • Holy Waters
  • Sacred Site Essences
  • Bach Flower Remedies
  • Positive affirmations

Essential Oils
Aromas have an effect on our decisions and even our ability to comprehend, remember and process feelings and emotions. We have 40 million olfactory receptor neurons that detect up to 10,000 different aromas. The essential oils use are real extractions from plants, roots, barks, flowers and trees with hundreds of real chemical components that affect our physical body as well as our mental state, emotional balance and spiritual connection.

Gemstone Tinctures
The energy of crystals, minerals and gemstones aid us through their vibration. Crystals, minerals, rocks, metals, and gemstones are tools from the earth that can be used to assist you in staying focused on your intentions to create and maintain positive change in your life. The color, location mined, and the geometric configuration combined with the intention matched to the gemstone brings positive transformation.

Holy Waters
Throughout my own life, holy water played a pivotal role in healing and balance. My wise mother would bless me and my siblings with holy water when we were sick or under the weather in some way. Over the years I've been collecting holy water from many churches throughout the world though at the time didn't really know what the ultimate purpose would be. Now these holy waters are potentiated and used in my line of sprays including this new launch of the Chakra Sprays.

Sacred Site Essences
Everything is energy. All energy vibrates. All vibration affects our reality. Because of these basic principles I've also been "capturing" the energetic essences of Sacred Sites around the world. I spent many years bringing my customers on Sacred Site Journeys to Mexico, Peru, and Europe. I would collect the essence of the location through intention, water and sometimes add a rock or pebble from the location for flavor. In some cases, I obtained water from a sacred spring or river when available. Energetic waters from Glastonbury Well in England, Teotihuacan in Mexico, St. Germain's church in France and Mother Mary's last known home outside Ephesus in Turkey are just a few among the collection I use in my Aroma-Energetic Sprays.

Bach Flower Essences
Most of us are familiar with the use of herbs for healing and balancing the subtle and physical bodies. On a vibrational level, the energy of a plant, herb or tree has balancing properties. The most commonly used flower essences are Bach Flower® Essences which are drawn from the essence of wildflower blooms by the power of the sun.  There are 38 plant and flower based formulas that can help manage the emotional demands of life.  They are vibrational, not extracts, because it's the energy of the plant or flower that is utilized.

Positive Affirmations
To complement and actualize your intention use  positive thoughts and establish your intention regarding your goals and desires. Each spray has a suggested affirmation associated with the given chakra. Replace negative thoughts or fears  with the positive statements that the affirmation provides. Repeat the affirmation again and again and soon you’ll find that any negative thoughts and fears disintegrate. Where love and goodness reside there is no room for anything but love and goodness. Focus on what you do want, not what you don't want!

I am grateful and honored to have these formulas come through me to provide such a powerful and positive tool to help many people. I invite you to stop by The Crystal Garden to spray and play with these amazing treasures. They truly smell and feel amazing!

Look for a store near you that carries our line. Remember - Buy Local!!

Oracles have been used in many cultures, religions, political and spiritual arenas for centuries. In ancient Greece, oracles were priests and priestesses that brought through divine messages in response to specific inquiries. Gemstones, too, have been used in a variety of ways from jewelry to healing elixirs and amulets.

Messages from the angels have become an ordinary occurrence now. These divine messengers brought revelations and messages through saints and prophets throughout time. Divine messages also come from the angelic realm to guide you and guard you during this lifetime. Everyone has this gift of the angelic realm available. Ask for Divine guidance from angels and guides to inspire you to select the highest and best course of action. Stay focused on love, compassion and integrity. Then take action to clear out the negative energy of doubts, fears, low self-esteem, unmet expectations, abandonment, and betrayal and so on.

Gemstones are powerful tools, which guide you toward personal understanding. The colors and shapes of the stones bring you messages to motivate and heal you in many ways. Crystals and gemstones have elemental energy of earth spirits. These earth spirits, the Gemstone Guardians, maintain the intention, use, color, and integrity of the stone. The Gemstone Guardians speak to us just as the angels do. The color, origin, mineral compounds and shape offer insights to the stone’s meaning. Divine messages come through the crystals when used with your intention.

Using crystals and gemstones for readings came to my awareness after years of assisting customers pick gemstones in my own retail store in Florida, The Crystal Garden. Customers often want to know what stone will bring them love, or which crystal will clear negativity from their lives. I recommend that they go stand before the jewelry counter or the display of tumbled stones and encourage them to allow their eyes to go to what is drawing their attention. Try it. Go to your local jewelry or metaphysical store and ask yourself, “What pieces are attractive to me in this moment?”

Once you’ve chosen all the stones you are attracted to, look up the meaning of the gemstone in one of my books, The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones, Color Your Life with Crystals, or Chakra Awakening. Read further about what you have chosen. You might be astonished at the accuracy of what that stone represents. Deeper understanding of yourself aids in awakening your consciousness. And, the process of self-discovery using this process is also fun. I was so inspired that I created the Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards to provide guidance and positive thoughtforms to transform reality in an easily accessible way for everyone.

The combination of these tools – angels, gemstones, and the oracle - brings a powerful trio to the intuitive readers table and beyond. These tools are for everyone because everyone has the ability to connect with the Divine and receive intuitive insight to guide each person on their path. The power of positive thinking has been proven time and again. All these components are found within the Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards.

How to use the Angel Gemstone Oracle

Start by asking your angels and guides to be part of the session. Open your heart, mind and spirit to receive the information that will help at this moment. It is best to have a specific question or request for guidance on a particular area of your life. There is no question to mundane or esoteric when using the Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards.

Angel_Gemstone-Oracle-Cover400x300Shuffle the deck. As you shuffle keep your attention on your intention and notice if there are any cards that are either “jumping” out or revealing themselves to you by the way they blend back in the deck. Pull one to three cards per question. Usually the answer arrives within the first card.

On the front side of each card is the divination. On the back side, the angel of that area of life offers positive thoughtforms to repeat and affirm to shift your consciousness to focus on what you do want vs. what you don’t want. That’s the transformational aspect of using this deck. Remove what isn’t working and use your imagination and action to create the reality you really want in your life.

Let’s say you want to know if it is safe for you to speak your truth in a matter of importance in your life. You shuffle the deck and the amazonite card comes out of the deck.

The front side of the card says:

Amazonite Are you holding back something you need to say? The truth about a certain matter needs to be spoken. Honesty is important at this time. Have the courage to speak up with grace. Loving words have the power to heal or improve a situation.”

Then when you flip over the card the Angel of Truth and Honesty provide this positive thoughtform:

“I live my truth and honestly communicate what is on my mind with ease. I effortlessly find the words to express my truth and speak eloquently and lovingly. I surround myself with people who are not afraid to honestly express themselves.”

 

Everyone can always benefit from more love. “You are love. Your true essence is love. Be aware that you are love in all you do, say, think, feel, smell, taste or know, and you will be happy and healthy all the days of your life.” Excerpt from Chakra Awakening

Clear Negativity and Draw in Blessings and Well-Being

On December 27, 2013, in Uncategorized, by MargaretAnnLembo

It's that time again. Time to prepare for the New Year. It's time to clear out the old and release negative vibes of the past. Leave them. Let them go! Release them and set them free.

And then . . . decide with focus and crystal clarity on the blessings and well-being you want to draw into your life. It's up to you. It's always up to you. Whatever you wish for, focus on, take action toward and ardently and passionately desire will surely come to pass. The trick is to keep those negative thoughts and emotions from creeping up into your consciousness.

I always recommend using tools to help. That's why I created Smudge in Spray about 10 or more years ago.

When I first created it, it wasn't for sale. It was just for me. I became a non-smoker in 2001 and my respiratory system wasn't able to handle the smoke created from1-sage burning smudging using sage and my super-duper blend of frankincense, myrhh, copal, osha root, palo santo, lavender buds and more. I still sell all the burning versions of smudging products including abalone shells and smudging fans at my store, The Crystal Garden.

Over the years, Smudge in Spray has replaced the smoking version of smudging in many people's lives. Now the rituals for clearing can take place anywhere. Afterall, it's not socially acceptable or appropriate to light up a sage wand in an airport, on a plane, in an office or a classroom. And, the remaining scent of sage often smells like marijuana so it raises many eyebrows!!

SmudgeinSprayWeb -284x700Smudge in Spray is the #1 Best Seller because it clears out negative energy through the use of 6 different essential oils and other special ingredients. The amazing thing is that with your positive intentions and prayers Smudge in Spray helps you REPLACE the negativity with blessings, love, prosperity, and peace.

Prepare for 2014 with a nice energetically clean space. Smudge your car, home, office, classroom - wherever you spend time - and intend that the space is refilling with love and well-being.

Tis the season to be . . .

On December 19, 2013, in emotions, Friendship, Gratitude, grief, manifesting, prayer, self confidence, by MargaretAnnLembo

During the ‘season’ we find ourselves in the time of hustle and bustle. We have many parties to go to (or not), a lot of presents to buy, a lot of food to donate and eat, and still find a way to have enough money to do all of that.

There is a lot of pressure to squeeze a lot of money out of our pockets at this time. Christmas ballsSome of us do not have presents to buy or to receive. Some do not feel the hustle and bustle in a joyful way. Often, there are many who secretly or not so secretly dread the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

Somehow, this season causes an extraordinary amount of stress and depression. Nostalgia of times gone by or sadness due to sad memories can add to the depression, sadness and loneliness. Keep this in mind as friends and family act or react in a way that is less than pleasant. Try not to take it personally. Instead send them love and prayers.

The Winter Holidays are a time when we are ‘supposed’ to be happy and have fun! Actually, we always deserve to be happy and have fun.  How can we make this a time of joy, peace and love? Joy, peace and love are our Divine Birthright.

We have a choice in how to create our lives regardless of the season.  Even when you are feeling sad and embraced the sorrow, try to make the choice to shake it off and find joy. Think of your favorite things. Contemplate all the ways you are blessed. When we do, then we create a happier vibration for ourselves and those around us. At a time when there are so many delectable treats, it is important to balance our intake with healthy foods.  When our bodies receive the right nutrients in our food and vitamins we are able to maintain better balance. Exercise and sunshine are key factors as well as playing with friends.  Laughter and play can change our attitude and emotions in the blink of an eye.

There are times, regardless of the season, that we feel all alone.  Here is our reminder: we are never alone!  God is always with us.  Our Guardian Angel is always by our side from the moment we are born onto this planet.  It only takes a little faith to connect with the God within and our Spiritual Guide.

And, it only takes a little action to reach out, pick up the phone and call our friends or family members to make plans to have fun.

Now is the time to make happy memories.  Go into your memory banks and recall a family holiday tradition that you miss and recreate that in your life. In the hustle and bustle of busy holiday days, remember to take the time to nurture yourself even if you have to make an appointment with yourself. Schedule the time to rest, rejuvenate and relax. Create a sacred space using candles, incense, crystals, aromatherapy, flowers or whatever makes you happy and then stop and enjoy it.

And if you get a little twinge of loneliness wishing that you had someone to share it with, just remember and silently acknowledge your Guardian Angel or Spiritual Guide. Your Guardian Angel is with you, by your side, looking over your shoulder and seeing all the beauty that you have created.  Your Guardian Angel sees the Peace, Joy and Love that you carry within.  When you need the extra help from the angelic realm all you need to do is think the thought or say it aloud and the help will magically manifest.

Open your heart, mind and spirit to all the Love that is and that YOU ARE!

I recently completed a questionnaire

Tell us about how you started your business

The Crystal Garden was founded by Margaret Ann Lembo in 1988 as a retail store. Over the years, The Crystal Garden grew and so did Margaret Ann's know

Margaret Ann Lembo - The Crystal Garden Store

The Crystal Garden Store -Margaret Ann Lembo

ledge of essential oils.

In 2005 Margaret Ann launched her first guided meditation CDs at the request of her customers. In 2011, Margaret Ann's first book, Chakra Awakening, was published by Llewellyn Worldwide at the same time she launched her Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards - all of which are to help increase positive thought and self-awareness. in 2013, two more books were published - The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones (Llewellyn) and Color Your Life with Crystals (Findhorn Press)

Through years of practice, selling and working with essential oils she started creating synergistic blends of oils to help body, mind and spirit. Some of her blends also include other "energetics" to amplify the potential of a given spray or oil. At her retailer colleagues request, she began the wholesale division around 2005 to allow her fellow retailers to sell her best selling oils, sprays and more.

4-bottles-crystals-ameth-rosemary-2fluourite-V2Today this loving cottage industry has grown to sell a full line of medical grade oils and aromatic mists hand filled with loving intent by the Angels of The Crystal Garden.

Many retail stores around the country are selling Smudge in Spray successfully. It is our #1 best selling spray. Euphoria Relaxing Spray and Guardian Angel Spray hold a close second. Now with Archangel Raphael and Prosperity Mist, the line is expanding and selling very well throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Most stores sell 24- 36 bottles per month

Describe your work.

The formulas for the blends and mists are divinely inspired through Margaret Ann. These unique blends have helped realign many people spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionSmudgeinSprayWeb -284x700ally.

The Aroma-Energetic Sprays and Oil Blends that are divinely inspired have Holy Waters, Sacred Site essences, and Crystal-Gemstone Tinctures. The Holy Waters and Sacred Site essences were and still are hand collected or created personally by Margaret Ann from around the world - throughout her whole life. It wasn't until she started received her inspirations that she realized why she was collecting the various waters and Sacred Site Essences. Margaret Ann uses the energy of crystals – their color and vibration – and creates “tinctures” which hold the vibrational essence of the stones with the intention to restore balance and peace. Margaret Ann also includes Bach Flower Essences to help the user dispel challenges with mental and emotional challenges through vibrational healing and intention. Dr. Bach's Original Flower Remedies, a system of 38 Flower Remedies are created to help mankind achieve joy and happiness. Our motto is “heal the planet one spritz at a time!”

 How did you get started in the wholesale business?

Color Meditation -open coverI started creating various Meditation CDs because my customers who attended my classes and events wanted the help to be guided through the meditation experience even after the event was over.

The development of my proprietary essential oil blends and sprays developed because there was a need. I needed an alternative to smoky smudging of sage, cedar and other resins to energetically clear my space. Due to respiratory challenges I came up with Smudge in Spray, our #1 Best Seller, and soon my customers asked to buy it! Then fellow retailers followed suit and soon I was bottling and selling all my special blends.Auntie_Ms-Anti

Auntie M's Anti was created because a friend of mine, Marguerite, just couldn't seem to shake a respiratory imbalance.

Euphoria was created because I saw the need for myself and my girl friends who needed something to help with PMS and menopause . . . and general feelings of stress or hysteria.

Lift Me Up! blend was created because my dear friend couldn't seem to shake the blues. Now Lift Me Up!blend is also a spray by the name of Bliss Mist.

There are so many blends, oils and stories. Stay tuned as I will share as time inspires me!
