SUMMER…IT’S FINALLY HERE!

The Summer Solstice is officially the first day of summer today, June 21. Summer conjures up all kinds of outdoor activities; spending time at the beach or lake, picnics with family and friends, gardening and the joy of a cloud burst bringing forth a breathtaking rainbow.
Many parts of the country have been experiencing record breaking rain, and with the rain, those pesky mosquitos join the fun! Using natural methods to control the bugs of summer has always been my first choice.
Lemongrass Essential Oil Medical Grade
 
Use Lemongrass Essential Oil Blend as a good insect repellent. It also reduces pet odors and helps to keep your pets free of ticks and fleas.
 Bye Bye Buggies Natural Insect Repellent and Room Deodorizer
Another choice is Bye Bye Buggies Spray. Use this spray to discourage most bugs and insects from landing or crawling onto treated area. (ants, flies, mosquitoes, chiggers, spiders, fleas and ticks) Spray every three hours as needed. This blend was created to repel insects, and yet it has proven to be the #1 deodorizer of bathroom odors, and pet smells.
 Peppermint Essential Oil Medical Grade
 
Summer is also the time for road trips. Use Peppermint Essential Oil as an aid to stay awake while driving. This oil serves double duty relieving the itching and irritation of mosquito bites.
 
For those of you who are interested in astrology and the zodiacal cycles, the Sun is at 0 degrees Cancer to start this next quarter. Cancer is the fourth astrological sign of the zodiac cycle and, therefore, the ruler of the fourth house of the astrological chart. The fourth house is associated with the home, family, real estate, your mothers (or fathers), and also how you see yourself. Cancer is a Cardinal sign, the planetary ruler is the Moon – a luminary or light – and its symbol is the Crab. The element associated with Cancer is Water. The key phrase for Cancer is “I feel.”

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

This coming Sunday, June 18 we celebrate Father’s Day. It wasn’t until June 19, 1910, that a special day was set aside to honor fathers as a national holiday in the United States. Today we celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday of June.

The relationship I had with my Father was extraordinary. And, when I think about the wisdom and knowledge he provided, it was unending in my life. Peace, protection, goodness, and love. He encouraged me in so many ways. Dad often said to me, “Margaret Ann, it is never too late to try something new or learn something new.” He often said, “You don’t know until you try. So try! If you need to change course, you’ll know.” Dad was a great model for me If fact; he started a brand-new business at 62 years old that is still going strong today!2 oz Archangel Michael Aromatic Spray. Spray this aroma-energetic mist to call on Archangel Michael to know All is Well. Invoke this archangel for peace, protection, justice, goodness and love. Feel the blue ray of support, assistance and safety shining upon you.

Whether your Father is near or far, the masculine, spicy, citrusy aroma of Archangel Michael Spray and Archangel Michael Essential Oil is a perfect blend. The Archangel Michael blend is a reminder of not only your Father or the person in your life that was or is a Father figure, but also the love and protection that our Universal Father has for us.Archangel Michael Essential Oil Blend

If you are spending the day with your Father, enjoy the day! And if not, use Archangel Michael Spray or Archangel Michael Essential Oil to set your intention of protection, safety, and well-being.

With love and gratitude,

NEW BEGINNINGS

New Beginnings

Can you feel the excitement? Brides across America are getting ready for one the most significant days of their lives. It is a time for new beginnings!

When I got married it was important to me to share not only the love I have for my husband, but I wanted that love to be shared with all those that attended our wedding. Everything had to be perfect. And it was. It was the most glorious day!

Finding a way to convey our feelings was essential. The color pink and rose quartz fit the bill. Both the color and the gem are often associated with love and romance and given as a token of love. My husband and I decided that the perfect wedding favor would be a heart-shaped rose quartz crystal. We placed the hearts in a lacey pouch at each place setting. Our intention was to create a crystal grid of love and well-being within the reception room. This grid enhanced the positive vibration in the room and it provided the perfect gift for each guest to take home that extraordinary love energy.

When thinking about your special day…here are some great tips to make it spectacular.

For pre-wedding jitters use Orange Blossom Mist or Orange Essential Oil. This fresh citrus oil will help to raise your spirits, calm your nerves and bring joy and happiness to you and those around you

Orange Essential Oil & Orange Blossom Mist Spray Affirmation

The day you get married will be one of the happiest days you will have in your life. Roll on Be Love throughout the day as a reminder of the joy and love surrounding you and your spouse. “Be Love” also makes a great bridal shower or wedding favor.

May the love, joy and happiness embrace you each and every day.

With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo

GRADUATION IS MORE THAN A DIPLOMA

GRADUATION IS MORE THAN A DIPLOMA

Graduation is much more than diploma. Whether you are graduating from high school or college or another type of institution you are about to start a new adventure. Each day will bring new challenges and the excitement of the unknown. Keep focused on what you want for your life – remember you create your own reality!

You can manifest all kinds of dreams and wishes. The success I have enjoyed in my career has always started with a written list. I organize my thoughts into categories like income, career, family, travel, physical, social, education, and spirituality. Written goals and intentions help to clarify and crystallize objectives. Prioritization coupled with visualization and written lists that have deadlines are paramount in reaching goals. Establishing a deadline creates a chemical reaction in the body, mind, and spirit to make a goal a reality.

Remember – anything you ardently desire, visualize with passion, truly believe in, and enthusiastically act upon will come to pass.

The Navel Chakra is the energy center of manifestation.

2 oz Navel Chakra Spray: Creative Flow & Manifest Now Spray this synergy blend to activate the second chakra. Visualize orange light around your belly. Use this spray to remove blocks and increase your courage in bringing your ideas into actuality. Imagine your life as you want it to be!

Use the Navel Chakra Spray blend to activate the second chakra. Visualize orange light around your belly. Use it to remove blocks and increase your courage in bringing your ideas into actuality. Imagine your life as you want it to be!

“My imagination is the key to my success. I envision my future and joyfully participate as it unfolds.”

Cinnamon Essential Oil Medical Grade

Another great tool is Cinnamon Essential Oil. Cinnamon raises confidence and self-esteem. It helps to unblock the energy you call “Blocks” that allows one to move beyond the perception that something is standing in the way of goals, desires, or the completion of creative projects. Inhale this essential oil while repeating this affirmation.

 “Abundance and prosperity are constantly flowing in my life. I am courageous. I bravely bring my ideas into actuality. My imagination is the key to my success. My ideas are fresh and creative. I take action to manifest my artistic thoughts. I embrace life and enjoy a strong passion for living.”

Congratulations on your achievement and I wish you much success as you embark on the next chapter of your life journey!

With love and gratitude,

MEMORIAL DAY

MEMORIAL DAY

It's easy to forget what Memorial Day actually means while we go to parades, enjoy picnics with family and friends and look to this day with great anticipation as the unofficial start of summer. But there is so much more…and we should never forget to honor those men and women who died in the military and those who were severely wounded in combat.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, was first observed on May 30,1868 to honor the soldiers of the Civil War.  It wasn’t until after World War II that Decoration Day was officially named Memorial Day in1967.

As we enjoy our family and friends on this upcoming Memorial Day lets us give thanks and our gratitude for the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers.

Singer, Lee Greenwood said it well. “And, I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free and I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.”

Freedom is a precious gift given by thousands of men and women who ensured our freedoms with their lives…I am forever grateful.

With love and gratitude,

THANK YOU TO THE UNITED STATES MILITARY

THANK YOU TO THE UNITED STATES MILITARY

This Saturday, May 20 people from around the world celebrate Armed Forces Day. In the United States we honor and pay tribute to those currently serving in the five branches of the military on the third Saturday in May each year.

It’s a time to stop and think about our freedoms and the men and women who keep us safe. It is also an opportunity to say thank you when you see someone in uniform.

Intentions not only work for you as part of your daily journey. But interceding with a positive affirmation on the behalf of others can be just as powerful.

 I am safe and sound. All is well. I am always Divinely protected.

Margaret Ann Lembo The following essential oils can also be helpful as you set your intention on protection. And as you do so include the men and women in the military.

HELP MOM UNPLUG FOR MOTHER’S DAY

HELP MOM UNPLUG FOR MOTHER'S DAY

This Sunday, May 14 we celebrate Mother’s Day. A day to honor those women in our lives who are mothers, stepmothers, mothers-in-law or those that have been a mother presence in our lives.

As I think about this day I wanted to provide a gift giving option that would have special meaning to those we love. While my Mother has passed to the other side, she gave me such an appreciation for nature and the spiritual world. The time we spent in the garden together was so special and provided a way for us to bond and unplug. She provided the foundation for all that I create. So, on this day I honor her and give thanks for all she did in my life.

 

While your mother doesn’t need to be in the garden to unplug, you can help her Color Your Life with Good Thoughts. Coloring is a wonderful way to unplug and calm down. It provides a meditative practice to relieve stress and create positive thoughts. This will be the gift that keeps on giving!

Did you know that specific colors are beneficial for areas of life and intentions? To feel calmer and at peace, use colors like blue or green. For more energy and motivation, use red and orange tones. To increase joy and confidence, use shades of yellow. To allow more love and comfort, green and pink are best. And to feel grounded and focused, blacks, browns, and gray are beneficial. However, regardless of the colors one chooses, coloring allows for relaxation.  

The coloring book I’ve created presents an array of personally chosen images and is matched up with a corresponding good thought based on the meaning of the image. Each time your mother starts to color, not only will she enjoy the benefits of coloring, she will be reminded of the love you have for her!

Color Your Life interior 11-20- Notes from Margaret_Page_43.jpg

 

 

 

Say I love you to your mother this Mother’s Day in a new and unique way.

With love and gratitude,

THERE IS A REASON THAT MAY IS CALLED ASTHMA AND ALLERY MONTH

THERE IS A REASON THAT MAY IS CALLED

ASTHMA AND ALLERGY MONTH

We all know the saying “April Showers bring May flowers” – well May is here and we are surrounded by the beginning of beautiful flowers in the garden…but for some us it is the season of sneezing, coughing and allergies. There is a reason that May is called Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month!I 

Many people suffer from both asthma and allergies. The following essential oils are very helpful. 

Eucalyptus Essential Oil Medical GradeEucalyptus is beneficial at the first sign of a cold or respiratory challenge. It aids in opening up breathing passages to relieve congestion of nose, sinus, and bronchial airways. 

Ravensara is great for warding off germs that affect the respiratory system. Use this oil to relieve sinus and bronchial congestion and clear bacterial infections. Ravensara Essential Oil Medical GradeIts powerful properties help to dissipate the potential for stubborn viral attacks, due to its strong immunological qualities.

Niaouli Essential Oil Medical GradeAn essential oil you may not have heard of is Niaouli. It helps to clear out infections of the respiratory system, including bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, and the symptoms of asthma.

So, when you are feeling that cold coming on, or you are experiencing the discomfort of allergies, try one of these essential oils. I think you will be happy with the results. Mother Nature has provided us with many options to heal our physical, mental, emotional and physical needs. 

Want to learn more about the benefits and use of essential oils? Read my book The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing. The book is available at many local bookstores, Amazon and your local public library.

My body is in a constant state of restoration and healing.

Margaret Ann Lembo

 May you breathe in the wonderful scents of spring and enjoy each and every moment you spend outdoors!

With love and gratitude,

TO “BE” IS TO LIVE

To “Be” Is To Live

It’s not surprising that a synonym for the word “be” is to live. I thought about this word a lot as I developed my new line “Be" aromatherapy roll-on products. Creating these products has been a dream of mine for a long time and I’m “Happy” to announce that they are here. We all have the ability to take a dream and make it a reality. Many people spend their lives thinking about the “what ifs in life”. If you are reading this blog I know you are looking for ways to take action to become the “best you” you can be.

 I found two quotes that really sum up my feelings about reaching for the golden ring.

 “Participate in life instead of just watching it pass you by” (Lindsey Wonderson)

 “Step through new doors. The majority of the time there’s something fantastic on the other side” (Terri Mindock)

As I started the creative process on the “Be” line I was inspired to send love out into the world in the way of fragrance and positive intention. My mind was going a million miles a minute! But voila it all became clear that the “Be” line should include Be Happy, Be Inspired, Be Love, Be Motivated, Be Romantic, Be Safe, Be Sleepy, Be Wealthy and Angel-gesic.

Be one of the first people to get a sneak peek at the products and how using them can help you keep your focus and “Be” the “Best You” you can be.

 

 Leo Tolstoy said, “If you want to be happy, be”

With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo

CELEBRATING MOTHER EARTH

CELEBRATING MOTHER EARTH 

This Saturday, April 22, people around the world will be celebrating International Earth Day. Earth Day was first celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970. The concept of taking time to acknowledge and celebrate the beauty of the earth and at the same time focus on its protection gained momentum throughout the world. And the world took notice so much so that the General Assembly of the United Nations declared in 2009 that going forward the name would be changed from Earth Day to International Earth Day.

 In my work for the last 30+ years I have come to appreciate all we receive from Mother Earth. Crystals, minerals, rocks, metals, and gemstones are tools from the earth that can be used to assist us in staying focused on our intentions to create and maintain positive changes in our lives. Plus, they are simply beautiful. Essential oils are derived from aromatic plants. These plants have played an important role in health, beauty food preservation, and healing on all levels for millennia, with written records going back to around 3500 BC. So, combining crystals, minerals and stones with the use of essential oils provide us with a variety of tools to assist with our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs.

 Cedarwood, Virginia 5 mlMedical Grade Essential oilAs I mentioned in an earlier blog, spring is a wonderful time to clear out the old and bring in the new. The use of cedarwood is often included in smudging blends to replace negativity with positive energy.

With every step I take, I am aware of my connection with the sacred ground. The vibrant emerald-green energy of the plants and trees nurtures and restores my body, mind, and spirit. Everything I need to know is stored within me. I easily tap into my inner wisdom and knowledge.  - Margaret Ann Lembo

 Communing with nature provides opportunities to rebalance raw emotions, feelings and out-of-control responses. Vetiver is the perfect essential oil for earth-centered spiritual pursuit, earth-based rituals, and shamanic journey work. It can assist in calming your emotions and nerves while uplifting your mood to feel more aligned and balanced.  Vetiver Essential Oil

 All is well, I am calm, relaxed, and at peace. I am grounded, focused, and energized. I have plenty of energy and time to accomplish what I need and want to get done. I live a spiritual, peaceful life, I spend quality time in nature every day. I have an intimate connection with Mother Nature and her loving tools for natural healing.  - Margaret Ann Lembo

 Take time this Saturday for a long walk, read a book under a tree, garden, go to an International Earth Day celebration and enjoy all Mother Nature has designed for us to enjoy.

Happy International Earth Day.

 With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo
