Aromatic Alchemy - Second edition                          

The Second Edition of  Aromatic Alchemy. The energetic centers in the human body, known as chakras and auras, are pathways for wellbeing. Updated information on balancing the ChakraAuras using the transformative modality: Vibrational AromaTherapy by Ixchel (TM), which includes utilizing Nature's bounty of Gifts for wellbing.  NEW INFORMATION: Alkemie Parfumerie (blending for transformation) and an additional 130 Essential Oils (totaling over 200)  with their energetic and healing properties, gathered through research by Ixchel.

Aromatic Alchemy is a book that honors, ignites, and brings understanding to the mystery of alchemy. It demonstrates practical ways to learn about aromatherapy and provides guidelines for self-study. A wonderful source that celebrates and honors life.

The Alkemie of Life, Love, and Parfum

I've sat with shamans in India and an Indian shaman in Italy. I've shared beauty secrets and tea with the Troglodyte women of the Saharas and honored the moon with women in the forests of Northwestern America. Shared prayer pipe ceremony at Native American Sundance and shared my medicine in the Medicine Tipi at International Sundance. Sat in circles of prayer with peoples from Japan, New Zealand, Australia, South America, Central America, India, Europe and North America. I've walked the runways in Paris for a haute couture fashion designer and walked the red carpet in Hollywood at the "Oscars" with a famous actor. I've been devastated by disastrous lovers, experienced losing  my house to bankruptcy, and reinvented myself so often that I've lost count. My journey is like most peoples across the globe... we seek two things: Healing and Love. This book is a narrative memoir, as I travel through the senses to awaken healing, find Great Love, and open to the light of my soul... A life where dreams blossom into reality.
