Trevallan is so excited to introduce you to Emgoddess.
Emgoddess, a unique entity focused on changing perceptions and attitudes towards a topic not overtly discussed – a woman’s monthly cycle.
Sharon Wood is the Founder and Director of Emgoddess as well as the author of the Emgoddess book and together with Perfect Potion has also released the four Emgoddess essential oil blends.
Sharon will be delivering the workshop herself. She explains the Emgoddess workshop is especially for women and will take you on a journey through your four phases of the month. You will learn about how your phases affect you physically and emotionally and what you can do to naturally improve your energy, decision making and generally well-being.
This workshop teaches you to understand when and why you feel the way you do at different times of the month. By developing a stronger self-awareness and by linking your natural cycles with four goddess energies.
In doing so, you will increase your awareness, giving you enhanced understanding, confidence and wonderful well-being.
You will learn practical steps of charting to ensure your new found knowledge can be implemented in your daily life.
Females aged 12 and up.
Even if you are yet to experience a period it is a great workshop to attend so you can be more prepared and have a better understanding of your cycles.
Males who wish to have a better understanding of the four cycles are also welcome to attend.

As you all know I have been doing a number of courses in Aromatherapy lately.
I have really enjoyed playing and learning so many new things about essential oils and their effect on our emotions and untimely our psychic .
Over a series of workshops I would love to share with you all some of the information I’ve learnt and help you make some little gifts for yourself along the way, that will help make you feel really special.

Each Workshop will focus on one part of the Aroma Tree and will be held once a month on a Saturday Afternoon.
We will discuss the properties of each part and learn some great blending ideas. You may even find you will be surprised with the scent of some of the blends.
You may even fall in love with some new essential oils.
We will be having some fun too with my Aromatherapy Insight Cards.

After reading this, you (like me) may feel that more than one chakra is imbalanced or blocked. This is because when one is blocked, the other chakras begin to compensate and either become overactive or under-active.
The best way is to start with the first chakra that is out of balance, check out our guide to balancing your chakras.
“According to ancient yogic philosophy, we are all a beautiful amalgamation of vibrational energy. It is said that you, me and everyone else each possess 7 bright, concentrated spirals or ‘wheels’ of energy known as chakras.” (Perfect Potion)
The function of the chakras is to keep the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health of the body in balance. Sometimes though these spinning wheels can become stagnate and the energy flow stops. Any kind of physical, mental and emotional stress can lead to stagnation.
To live a rich full and vibrant life we sometimes need a Chakra tune up! Much like a tune-up enables a car to operate at peak efficiency, a chakra tune up can help us operate at peak efficiency.
Perfect Potion has developed a range of essential oil blends that can help with our Chakra tune up.
But which chakras need Tuning Up?
Let’s find out!
Root Chakra – Muladhara
The first chakra is the Root Chakra and is associated with the colour red. The root chakra is located at the base of your spine. It connects us with our physical body and surroundings and promotes feelings of stability and security. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base.”
When this chakra is balanced you feel supported, grounded and have a sense of connection and safety to the physical world.
If there is an imbalance in the root chakra you may experience anxiety disorders, fears, or nightmares about basic survival needs and the ability to provide for life’s necessities.
To help balance this chakra Perfect potion has developed the Balance Chakra Blend. This blend helps makes us feel nurtured and centred. You only need to add a few drops to your diffuser to start helping you feel secure and allowing you to believe the universe will provide.

Our Sacral Chakra is given the Sanskrit name Svadhistana meaning ‘sweetness’. This chakra represents all that is sweet and vibrant in life. It represents our creative energy and is associated with the functions of our reproductive organs and sexual energy.
When this chakra is balanced, we have an ability to take risks, be creative and committed. We are passionate, sexual and outgoing.
When there is an imbalance with this chakra it can lead to an inability to commit in relationships, express our emotions, have fun or to be playful with our desires, be creative or to have pleasure or be pleasured. It can also lead to fears of impotence, betrayal, addictions.

The third chakra is the solar plexus chakra and is associated with the colour yellow. The solar plexus chakra is located at your solar plexus, between your navel and sternum.

When this chakra is balanced, we feel self-respect and self-compassion. We feel in control, assertive and confident.
When this chakra is stagnate our inner critic comes out. We doubt ourselves and reduce our personal power and have low self esteem. We over control and manipulate situations. We become fearful of criticism and what others think.

When this chakra is balanced we feel joy, gratitude, love and compassion, forgiveness flows freely and trust can be gained.
When this chakra becomes stagnate we can tend to over love to the point of suffocation. We fear loneliness which leads to more over loving. We can become overly jealous and angry and hurt.

When this chakra is balanced, we have free flowing words, expression and communication. We are honest and truthful yet firm. We are good listeners.
When we are out of balance, in this chakra, we can suffer from lack of self expression, either in the written word or the spoken word (writers block!). We feel out of control and have no willpower or even choice.
