The dictionary tells us that a daydreamer indulges in idle fantasy and entertains pleasant wishes that are unlikely to be fulfilled. I don’t know about you, but that last part sounds a bit grim. We all at one time or another indulge in some ‘head in the clouds’ stuff, but few things are more satisfying than seeing your dreams turn into reality. That being said, If I find myself spending a little too much time in the clouds I head straight to my essential oils. Essential oils are an incredible vehicle for managing and supporting my emotional wellbeing. I use them daily for this purpose and find diffusing and topical application a quick and easy way to experience their therapeutic benefits.
If I am spending a little too much time daydreaming I reach for one of my favourite essential oil blends, Balance. It contains a combination of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile. The aroma is warming, woody, comforting and can ground me quickly. I like to apply it to the soles of my feet and the base of my spine; this encourages me to settle very swiftly. It is also beautifully mixed in with some castile soap for a toxic-free bath soak. As a side note, my children love this blend, and it gets a thrashing during ‘witching’ hour. Many people swear by it!
Turning dreams into reality require consistent and persistent action. When it comes to injecting a bit of forwarding momentum in my life, Blue Tansy is where it is at. It is referred to as the oil of inspired action and invites us to manifest our dreams and passion into action. Think motivated, purposeful, responsible, committed and energised. It blends beautifully with Litsea, Coriander, Roman Chamomile and Fennel. I have a little roller of Blue Tansy, Litsea and Fennel diluted in some carrier oil that I apply to the inside of my forearms – the best spot to instantly create change in my emotional state.
Incorporating essential oils into your life can be done with ease. I started with diffusing a few different oils and quickly moved to topical application. They are such a beautiful thing to have access to and can have a positive impact on so many different areas of emotional and physical well-being, mood support and lowering the toxic load in your home. I am looking forward to stopping in next month and sharing how I clean and cook with these plant-based beauties. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please sing out.

When the world shut down but Western Australia was lucky enough to remain open, Sassind staffer and Perth resident, Cate, decided to make the most of this gift and began her 'Closed Border Bucket List'. See where she had been, where she is now and where she will travel next. And maybe it will inspire your travels when the world eventually open up again.

When Melbourne's second lockdown was announced with tough new measures in early July, our little family was in the very fortunate position to be having a mini break at Sassind Guesthouse at Mount Macedon. With the extra space and no guests permitted to stay, we decided to make it our lockdown home.
