Does Creativity and Essential Oils BLEND?
One thing I get asked all the time is “If you have an ART STUDIO and you TEACH ART
why do you teach about doTERRA essential oils?”
This is why. For me doTERRA essential oils and creativity do the same thing! They are healthy for your whole body,calm you down& balance your emotions, make you happy and give you a sense of peace and personal achievement. Both change & transform your mental, emotional and physical well-being. They can quieten the mind, lower your blood pressure, lower the heart rate, and release endorphinsinto the body that make you feel good and relaxed. The changes are so subtle at times that you don’t even notice it. Put the two forces together- essential oils plus creative self-expression such as ART for instance or doing something creative, brings a feeling of BLISS through your whole being. This is why I have created Art Spas. This is where I combine essential oils and Art together! The result is it soothes the soul, inspires your mind, and relaxes the body! People who have participated in the Spas often tell me that the ‘experience was amazing’, ‘that they feel uplifted’, and how they have ‘have realised how they neglect their bodies, and souls’.
Some of the most commonly asked questions about the Art Spas is:
Do you have to be good at art?
This is a great question and often stops people from coming to anything Arty because they think they have to be good at art. These clients have usually had a really bad ‘art’ experience when they were in Primary School which has stayed with them their whole life. Their view of their own art is that they are hopeless, and really believe they can’t draw or paint. Funny thing is, is that these people are really inspired by art, and yet that fear of being creative in an artistic way is the biggest hurdle to coming to a class. All I say to them is that I have a particular process in place whereby I encourage them to follow my artistic lead step by step, and usually if they listen to me, 30 minutes into the process they are loving it! This is because I teach a few little skills that I know they can do, and just apply those skill in a different circumstance.
Another die hard question about the Art Spa is:
What will we be doing? This question is asked by the control freaks the world over. The customer’s ‘need for control’ is the first STOP to exploring anything creative. I have an absolute rule that when you come to creative classes that we create spontaneously and skills are learned along the way. It is at this point where I use the magic medicine of the Essential Oils to relax the customer with a beautiful foot spa…..the aroma of the oils relax the mind and body, so that when we begin the creative process the customer is ‘READY’ for accepting something new and follows my direction with less resistance. Works every time! We end the creative process with a hand spa, and the satisfaction I see on the customers face tells me it was a pleasant, sometimes an emotional experience when they see for the first time themselves as creative souls and are proud of what they have achieved.
I see this transformation every day. The Art Spas are designed for the whole purpose of personal reflection, relaxation, creative play and enjoyment.
Is this achievable, my word it is. I hope to see you soon.
