The Charming blend was created for my son Reiker – and is likely one of the blends I had the most difficulty in creating. As my daughter had a blend named after her- RoseRamie (her name is Ramie and she loves Rosemary…) – my son felt left out that he did not have his own blend. When I asked him what we would name his blend…he instantly came up with Charming. Charming indeed!
The difficulty in creating his blend, is that one of his favorite oils has always been Balsam Fir. So, I was convinced that his blend should contain that particular essential oil in his honor. However, try as I might – no blend containing the “Balls and Fur” (as his 5 year old brain misunderstood the name to be) – was “right”. I actually created over 7 versions of the blend, before finally giving up and just letting my creative juices flow. My husband noted how much Reiker loved the scent of Spearmint whenever it was used – and the idea blossomed! Evergreens and Spearmint – absolutely wonderful! It was instantly perfect – and Charming is an amazing blend that is more than just a wonderful scent.
Naturally, when we create a new blend, we often do not know its full potential. With Charming, this has certainly been the case. Of course, we wanted a scent that my son really loved. But, he also has challenges with over-stimulation, sensory overload, and has been placed on the Autism Spectrum through school. To me, he is a “little boy genius” – far past his age in intellect and “worldly knowledge” – and essential oil use has been incredibly helpful in our journey through life’s adventures. My hopes had been that this blend would also help him through his frustrations that occur in daily life.
As all of our essential oil blends are well used in our home, with our animals, children, friends and their animal relations prior to being “brought to the market” – we have gotten some amazing insight on just what Charming was “meant” for. Not necessarily a scent that I expected animals to be drawn to initially – it seems that when it is applied to a human working with an animal – there is an amazing amount of confidence and emotional support that follows. One little Chihuahua, had really disliked human interaction and would often bite at those trying to help it at an animal shelter. When the handler applied Charming to herself, the little dog jumped up into her lap and responded completely differently than it ever had before. Definitely emotional strength, confidence, and stress relief is a huge function of the Charming blend.
For those of you who are energy workers, you’ll find Charming a great compliment to your work. We often use oils to aid in animal communication, Reiki sessions, T-Touch, Healing Touch and more – and Charming fits into this category perfectly. Diffusion of Charming is a wonderful thing for humans and animals alike – both emotionally and physically. With both Charming (and Strength described below) – having the blends absorbed into your hands while you perform energy work, chiropractic adjustments, acupressure, massage, aura stroking, or other forms of energetic exchange – will often result in responses that are just “different, powerful, and magical”. We urge you to try it!
Sometimes, you just need Strength
Quite by accident, we discovered another wonderful way to use Charming. Often in our work with behavior, training, emotional concerns, and energetic clearing – we will combine or layer the use of several essential oil blends which contribute in a variety of ways to the emotions. As three of our animalEO blends have been created for our own family members (Lovely for me, RoseRamie for Ramie, and now Charming for Reiker) – it seemed very appropriate to use all three of these together during one of our family “oil sessions”. What resulted was something quite spectacular. We dropped each blend into our hands, rubbed them together and inhaled. The immediate feeling of strength, confidence, and increased energy and light was so apparent. Truly magical.
We call this mixture – STRENGTH – and it is the blend that I now feel is my husband’s blend. Truly the strong backbone of our family – my husband contributes integral insight into the emotional and ethereal use of essential oils. Sometimes, it is just hard to describe the emotional responses that essential oils can bring – and certainly it is harder to transpose these feelings from human to animal and visa versa. Sometimes, the feeling just has to be experienced – and this is certainly the case with Charming and Strength. Strength – which contains Lovely, RoseRamie, and Charming – is available (and completely magical) for purchase as its own separate blend.
