Waning Moon is conducive for finance

It’s that time of the month when the moon is waning. When one’s personal energy also seems to be declining. We tend to sleep more, postpone errands and meetings and find ourselves with a lot of time to pursue our own agenda. It’s a natural process and I look at it as a time when our personal energies get freed up from the influence of the powerful energies of the moon. We feel less emotional and more business like.

What I am getting at for now is that the dark side of the moon is more conducive for financial transactions. I have noticed that payments come through usually during this phase. So, which other time could be more appropriate for a prosperity mix of essential oils. I suggest an orange aroma with a sharp ‘green’ twist to it. So, I’ve gone for Neroli
(which is actually an oil extracted from Orange blossoms and has a sharp aroma which reminds one of green vegetation) and sweet orange. There is bitter orange too, which I could have used, but I have not been able to procure it. That’s next on my list for experimentation. Also, I'm not sure if there is a separate oil termed ‘Orange blossom’. I believe the orange blossom essential oil is called Neroli. There is a slight difference of extraction though which produces two different essential oils. So, I hope some day I do get the Orange blossom oil.

Neroli oil, I procured online from , from a supplier from Uttarakhand ( ). Im excited to learn more about this oil. Meanwhile, my mix has come out perfect in Til oil and it has had wonderful impact!

Oils online!

Yesterday, it was a red letter day for me as I received a pack of oils which I had ordered online...for the first time. Till now I was dependent on oils which I procured in tiny 10 ml bottles from gift and other sundry shops. As you may be aware there are only a few shops in Delhi which keep oils and sell them on a retail basis. Many of these are big  showrooms with Essential Oils (EOs) and related products  tucked away somewhere in a corner. There is also Gulab Singh  Johrimal in Chandni Chowk, who have been in the business for almost 200 years. I remember my visit there nearly 7-8 years ago. A delightful place, with EOs in exquisite bottles in every nook and cranny of the grand old shop. I had bought beautiful small bottles then, some of which are still with me. There are scores of other dealers in aromatic oils in Chandni Chowk and other parts of Delhi, but most of them sell wholesale products.  Then there is  Kirti Stores in Khan market, which sells all sorts of mystical objects,, feng shui products and religious artifacts,  with branches in other parts of Delhi. Most of the oils which I have with me have been bought from Kirti Stores over the years and they have fared excellently in all the combinations I've tried out since the past more than ten years.

Recently I came across the FB page and website of 'Moksha' which are selling 'pure' EOs and carrier oils online. I'm sure these oils are very reliable. I had ordered a  mix of oils which I already have and some new one's  like Cucumber and Sunflower carrier oils. Since today is new Moon day, can't wait to try the oils with some new recipes. My intention of ordering some oils which I already have was to compare oils procured from different outlets and see how they fare in actual combinations.

Happy experimenting to me!  

 My new oils....
