Healing Lotus~Reiki Infused Art

Healing Lotus~Reiki Infused Art~Painted by Jan Gaul, Wicked Mystic Art Studio

Can you feel the healing energy that comes from this painting? I feel it resonates with the throat chakra.  Often you will find Artist Jan Gaul, of Wicked Mystic Art Studio, outside the studio painting, this one was completed during West Reading’s July 2nd Friday event. If you have ever visited the studio then you may have seen my very large lotus painting that Jan created a few years ago, many people comment on how peaceful they feel when looking at it.  During the painting process I send healing Reiki energy into the painting, each layer contains healing energy that radiates out to those that gaze upon it and fills the room. While I wish I could keep all of them, other than the one hanging in my treatment room, they are for sale. This particular one has sold but others will be created and all will be unique in their own way, price ranges will vary depending on the length of the creation process and size.

St. John’s Wort Infused Oil

St. John's Wort Infused Oil
St. John’s Wort Infused Oil

This weekend I made some infused oil from my beautiful St. John’s wort plant.  St. John’s wort is traditionally known and used for its ability to promote a feeling of well being but it also has many therapeutic actions that make it great for topical use that include antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, astringent, and antiseptic which can make it a wonderful healing body oil and massage oil for sore muscles.

Making an infused oil is easy and rewarding as you use what nature provides us to heal.  In this blend there are simple ingredients of sweet almond oil, St. John’s wort, and some lavender essential oil which is optional.  Other essential oils can also be added to enhance the aroma or therapeutic intention of your blend. Take care in the sun if you are using a body oil with St. John’s wort because it could increase your chances of getting sunburn.

Some fun herbal and aromatherapy workshops will be scheduled soon here at the studio where we will be making many of these different preparations. Make sure to ask for some of my St. John’s wort massage oil for your next scheduled massage!

Tulsi, Holy Basil, known as “Queen of Herbs” and “The Incomparable One” is one of the most sacred plants in India and is used as an Ayurvedic tea herb. Tulsi has profound medicinal and spiritual effects and has been used for centuries for its benefits for the mind~body~spirit. One of the main therapeutic actions of holy basil is to act as an adaptogen in the body which promote’s the body’s natural healing abilities and helps it respond better to physical, mental, and emotional stress, it is also a powerful anti-oxidant and beneficial for all body systems especially digestive and respiratory. Holy basil is often planted by doors or hung in doorways for good luck and spiritual harmony in the home. Shown in the picture is the Kapoor variety but I also have Krishna, Rama, and Vana varieties available at the studio, fresh and dried.
