Why Essential Oils?
Essential oils have been used for cooking, bathing, skin care and religious ceremonies since ancient times. The term “aromatherapy” was coined in the 20th century when scientists began to support the idea of using essentials for mood and health, and in the 1990’s, research helped biologists understand how our brain reacts to scent.
Scent is processed through the olfactory bulb and limbic portion of the brain; when we inhale pure plant oil, free from synthetics and fillers, powerful chemical reactions take place stimulating memories, emotions, and hormones. No two people will have the exact same reaction to each scent as our genetics, memories, and life experiences influence our interpretation of the essence.
The beauty of aromatherapy is that it allows us to create our own unique emotional responses. Essential Oils are more than a lovely scent, they can have a direct impact on our emotions and our overall well-being!
My name is Ginny and I am so pleased you found your way here. Let me take a moment to introduce myself... I am a third generation Floridian who married a hockey loving Canadian guy! We live in Stittsville, Ontario with our two incredible children.
As a busy Mom of two young kids, life can seem quite intense some days. While navigating this journey called Motherhood, I am a believer in all natural remedies to stay calm and centered. I find that essential oils have a direct impact on my emotions and well being! Many of the chemical properties in essential oils support anxiety, boost mood, and promote positivity within me. I would love to share my knowledge of essential oils with you. They have been a game changer in our home by empowering me tremendously as a mother as well as a women living in recovery.
I created these Cup of Intention products and workshops as a way to share the therapeutic benefits of working with oils as well as connecting with women in the community. My hope is that each workshop inspires you to come into the moment and Create with Intention in your own life!
Story behind a Cup of Intention
My Grandfather served in WW2 and spent 4 years overseas. During that time, he frequently wrote to my Grandmother and sent her letters & teacups from the interesting places he was stationed. I grew up admiring her teacup collection, as each cup told a story. As my own collection grew, I began looking for sustainable and creative ways to utilize the teacups. Because of my love for aromatherapy, I decided to make teacup candles!
I created the Intention Tags as simple reminders to myself , slow down, come into the moment, and reflect.
My "intention" for each workshop is that you will walk away feeling uplifted, calm and inspired to create in your own life! What began as a small candle making business in my kitchen, inspired by my grandmother's teacups has blossomed into a passion for leading intentional DIY workshops. We encourage participants to focus on mindful creativity, and above all Self Love...
