Trees, a re-occuring theme

As a freshman in high school I was encouraged to join the Speech club, so I did. I chose to memorize and tell the Shel Silverstein story the Giving Tree. Fast forward, approximately forty years later I presented the Tree of Life at the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy conference at Bastyr University.

Gosh, I realized I've bee telling the same story since high school not only speaking to groups but also with the fragrances I make. Perhaps you've come to the same realization at one of those rare moments when we see ourselves beyond the veils of this illusionary world we live in.

We have just entered the Celtic Tree Ogham of the Ivy which makes it an auspicious time to anoint ourselves with the green, mossy, forest fragrance Hedera helix, now back in stock as both a liquid and a solid.

Here is a YouTube video with Shel Silverstein reading the story:

The video Greg created of The Tree of Life presentation delivered at the Beyond Aromatics conference at Bastyr can be found here. I'm presenting "Scent and the Honey Bee" at this years conference, please join me on Sunday, October 23rd. My presentation will be soul enriching and you will have the opportunity to surround yourself with an inspiring community. Find details here.
