Time to relax.

Almost everyone I know is busy, though some have got better recently at saying, “no” to things but as the saying goes, “If you want something done, ask a busy person.”

This is perhaps a reflection on the type of person I mix with, most of whom are active members of several organisations, ranging from The Green Party, to Transition Cambridge and other community groups such as allotment committees, Community Orchard management team etc.

I find that many of these people need pinning down a month in advance or more to meet with them socially even if we meet through various other common activities in between times.

While this is true of some of my clients, it is certainly not true of all of them and while some who come for aromatherapy and massage are coming for relaxation as a last minute thing when they are at the end of their tether some seem to have more balanced lives and actually plan in their massages on a monthly basis.

If you are one of those who is always doing something, never taking the time to just be, try  two or three drops each of Frankincense and Myrrh in a burner or vaporiser or just on a tissue and breathe in deeply. These oils have been used to aid a calm state of mind by Christian churches for centuries and in Eastern and Middle Eastern temples for thousands of years before that. Their efficacy is no less today.

Or better still book an aromatherapy massage using these oils along with any others indicated by your individual needs.
