Your Inner Power

Your “Inner power” is a guiding force that leads you to live a healthier, happier, and more successful life. The very force that gives you the ability to have ambitious dreams and the strength to

make them happen. It is an inner fortitude that helps you to

face difficult situations with ease. There are some people who possess this inner-fortitude which makes them fearless when faced with obstacles in their paths, and there are others who are helpless and

powerless facing the same obstacles. The reason for this is that some people hide behind the shadow of their true self, because they associate their “Inner Power” with external power.

And these people are guided by FEAR, fearing that others might

assume that they will abuse their power. You cannot abuse your “inner power”, because it is not a kind of power that you wield to

bend the will of others. It is who you are, a state of mind together with a kind of confidence and inner strength that earn you respect.

When you possess these qualities, you make things happen easily and effortlessly. Remember, nobody else is you and this is your greatest strength.

Aromatherapy and You!

What is aromatherapy?

All living beings possess an energy or life force that can affect our individual energy positively or negatively. The healing power of various plants has been known and utilised since ancient times, and by harnessing their energy we can help to cure illnesses, improve moods and restore balance. Today, this practice is continued by aromatherapists such as myself.

Modern aromatherapy harnesses the healing properties of these plants through the use of essential oils; liquids which contain the distilled oil of plants through a method which extracts and concentrates the essence of a plant without diminishing its energetic properties.

These essential oils can be used by themselves or mixed into a wide variety of products, from mists and fragrances to skin treatments and shampoos, making it easy to enjoy their healing properties every day.

What makes Zulekha Therapies aromatherapy products special?

I was one of the first people in the UK to start developing pure, chemical, SLS and parabens-free products for daily use, while also integrating what I had learned from my aromatherapy education to infuse my products with the energy healing potential of various essential oils.

Since the early 2000s, I’ve been producing my products with the help of a cosmetic chemist who I’ve been working with from day one and, of course, nothing is animal tested. All essential oils I used are therapy-grade, the same quality you would find in high end products such as Neal’s Yard Remedies.

In fact, I’m the one who tests them! I’ve used everything that you see on my store, from skincare creams to shampoos and room mists. I develop my products for my own personal and professional use first, and when I find that they provide the benefits for body, mind and energy that I wanted to achieve, I offer them to others.

How do I use your aromatherapy products?

I’ve worked hard to create products that fit easily into your everyday routines, so anyone can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy healing without having to put in any extra effort. All my products are also SLS-free and parabens-free, and are made from 100% natural ingredients, making them the perfect choice for anyone who is sensitive to chemicals.

You’ll find a variety of aromatherapy products in my store, including:

NEW: Bespoke, online essential oil blends – tailor made for you

For many years, I’ve been blending bespoke essential oil aftercare products for clients who need precise energy balancing in between healing sessions. Now, I’m providing this service for everyone – online, and delivered to your door.

Simply get in touch with me at [email] and we will discuss what problems have been affected you, whether they’re health conditions, life challenges, emotional pain or anything else – even if you’re not sure, I can help you narrow down the energetic component of your problems.

With this information, I will create a custom blend of essential oils that are precisely tailored to tackle your problem, whether you need a specific chakra boosted, your auric field strengthened or your surrounding energy cleansed. This unique blend will then be sent directly to you, with detailed instructions on how to use them and when.

Why buy bespoke essential oils?

When you buy essential oils off the shelf – including those on my store – the concentration of essential oil is limited to low dilutions for safety reasons. While still effective, they’re not a high enough dose to provide highly precise and powerful healing.

As a qualified and experienced aromatherapist, I can provide essential oils at far higher concentrations, but only for direct orders where I have determined the safety and effectiveness of the blend. Whether in combination with other healing or by themselves, my bespoke essential oil blends offer a highly convenient and effective solution to energy imbalances and the many problems they can cause.

How Sacred Spaces Can Bring You Health, Abundance and Better Relationships!

When we operate within sacred spaces, life is easier as our environment becomes free of any negativity and energy can flow freely in a positive way. It is like we are moving with the current, rather than against it. Sacred spaces can be created in many ways; the easiest ones are to say a prayer, burn incense and sacred herbs or diffuse essential oils.

Essential oils and herbs are aromatic in nature and they have special cleansing and healing properties. As much as they can heal our bodies, mind and spirit, they can also heal spaces and environments, bringing harmony and peace by dissipating heavy, dull and stagnant energies.

Places where most people will notice the difference in the energy are: hospitals, churches, cemeteries and in nature. Each one of those places has a distinctive environmental feel, we can find them either healing, relaxing or overbearing. Each of our homes has their own vibes, depending on our thought patterns, how we feel,  the way we live our lives, the people we come in contact with and much more.

Feelings and emotions, past events, energies from arguments and negative attitudes and behaviours leave imprints in the spaces they happen. This is why you feel easy or disturbed in certain places.

“I’ll never forget this, about 20 years ago I was house hunting and a particular one on the market had been empty for more than 10 years. The energy of the whole house was flat and dead. The agent asked if I would like to see the basement which was a large space, I walked down the stairs and suddenly felt a strong resistance, stopping me from moving further. All I could see was pitch black, tangible and pulsating darkness. The feeling of this energy was overwhelming and scary, left me shaky for quite a while. I was haunted by that experience for a long, long time.”

On a smaller scale, we are most of the time surrounded by negative and toxic energies and the majority of people are unaware, getting on with life, never noticing that they are living in environments that are detrimental to their health and well-being.

This can be a vicious circle that we fail to break. Usually, for some people, they are constantly bombarded by negative influences that drain and deplete them on many levels. They get sucked in more and more into the swamp of negativity, failing to notice the many beautiful events that life offers them on a daily basis and unable to appreciate the small joys of life that would make them feel good and happy. They get used to the common forms of negative energies and continuously allow themselves to get dragged down into the core of surviving rather than living.

The common culprits that are the energy vampires, draining our vital life force and making us like zombies are:

Jealousy…        Selfishness…Ignorance…        Impatience…        Bigotry…        Hatred… Manipulation… etc.

We tend to encounter any one of these at least once a day such as:

Deceiptful Family Members…

Overpowering bosses…

Jealous friends…

Uncaring neighbours…

Impatient shoppers…

Lack of care from people in general….

When we come across these kinds of behaviours, we are affected on an energetic level and this can cause negative energy to build up in our aura and the space we occupy. This energy can have an adverse effect on everything we do, our relationships, careers, health and life in general, causing various forms of physical and mental illnesses.

Knowing how and practising methods to keep these negative influences from affecting us is very valuable and can help us live amazing lives.

Essential oils have the ability to uplift the spirit, purify the environment and dissipate the negativity that we are faced with on a daily basis. They help us to stay grounded and energized.

To cleanse and maintain a positively charged environment, at home, at work, in your car and even your aura, the appropriate essential oils are palo santo, sage, cedarwood, juniper, lime and lemon. They can be diffused in a room or used in the form of a spray.

Done twice a day or when needed this practice will make a huge difference to your attitude to life, your health, wealth and relationships.

Watch out for our next tutorial – more on how to protect yourself against the negativity of others.

The Trials & Successes of Zulekha Therapies – Part 2

Zulekha Therapies is only 6 years old, but the idea behind it and the journey to get here started 20 years ago. An uphill and shaky road, not for the fainthearted.

Felt great when it all fell in place.

My next step was to create natural aromatherapy products for everyday use that will enhance people’s lives physically, mentally and emotionally. At the time, essential oils were only used for massage and the only natural products were those offered by the Body Shop owned then by Anita Rodick.

That was indeed a very hard path to choose, the tunnels were endless and the roads shaky and treacherous. But, my passion for the products took me through all these hardships. Now, that I have helped hundreds of clients with skin problems, hair loss, cuts, burns, bumps, bruises and psychological problems such as sleeplessness, recurring headaches and much more, those times of endless research for all the details that went into making these products viable to be sold to the public, seem like a distant memory, albeit one that I will always keep close to my heart.

In 2003, I received all of my Reiki attunnements, up to master teacher level. Equipped with this wonderful knowledge and energy, I was able to continue healing myself on a deeper level and helped many others.

In 2006, my family was shockingly attacked on a psychlogical level and this attack threw me off balance. I prayed and searched for help and what presented to me was Shamanic healing. Using this practice, I was able to heal the effects of that trauma and move to a better place in my life. I now have the experience and expertise to help those who have the misfortune as I did to encounter such traumatic situations.

In 2011, my healing room sprays were accepted by Watkins Books in Leicester Square and Buddha on a Bicycle in Covent Garden.

My best gift this year is to see my article on Palo Santo featured in Kindred Spirit Magazine.

The Trials & Successes of Zulekha Therapies

Zulekha Therapies is only 6 years old, but the idea behind it and the journey to get here started 20 years ago. An uphill and shaky road, not for the fainthearted.

Felt great when it all fell in place.

My journey started when I walked away from my insurance sales representative job. The pressures of this environment became too much for me and my next step was to heal my life as I was exhausted and broken. I simply allowed myself to be drawn to what was comforting, soothing and rejuvenating. And, I discovered Yoga, Aromatherapy, Reiki and Shamanic Healing.

The journey meandered amongst those therapies and disciplines as I developed my skills and learned my trade.

I was first attracted to Spiritual healing and Yoga in 1996. That same year I travelled to Egypt on a journey of self-discovery, where, during a numerology session, my yoga teacher read that my destiny was to be a teacher. That haunted me for a long time, as I could not see myself in that role. But, as destiny is, it gradually unfolded and today I hold my students hands while they are on their journey on “The road less Travelled” as I was 20 years ago.

The Hidden Connection between Reiki and Aromatherapy

There is an undeniable connection between Reiki and the essential oils used in aromatherapy, more than the diffusing of a relaxing aromatherapy blend in the Reiki treatment room.

This connection is very much at a deeper level, the core level of both therapies and proper knowledge in how to make use of it, will provide the recipient benefits that extend far beyond using one therapy at a time and the effects are longer lasting.

When giving Reiki to a client, the practitioner will channel energy from a higher source and this energy will go where it is needed on the body, especially to the chakras clearing them of negative energy and blockages. Each chakra is associated with a group of organs and when they are all aligned they keep a person well. The hand positions used in Reiki cover and treat all major chakras.

We have seven main chakras, energy centres through which energy flows. A chakra is like a whirling vortex, powerhouse of energy. The word ‘chakra’ means ‘wheel’ and is derived from Sanskrit. The literal translation means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’.

When our chakras do not function as they should, our bodies, minds and emotions are out of balance.  There are several reasons that cause our chakras to be blocked; childhood traumas, loss of a loved one or sudden change in a person’s life leading to the building up of negative emotions in our psyche that make us feel bad about ourself. They range from feelings of worthlessness, unworthiness, guilt, fear, sadness, abandonment and rejection and much more.

How to heal your life by balancing your chakras

Each chakra has a different colour as follows:

Aromatherapy oils are multi-faceted in nature.  Whilst they are well known for their physical aspect, counteracting bacteria and helping to relieve pain in aching muscles or healing bruises and bumps,  their aromas play  an equally important role. They have the ability to by-pass our midbrain into our forebrain where our emotions reside and heal us on an emotional level.

This is not all when it comes to the properties of essential oils, they contain subtle spiritual qualities, and their aromas exist as vibrational rays which are associated with colors. Consequently, the oils with similar vibrations  and color as a certain chakra, has an affinity with that chakra,  when used in association with Reiki will accelerate the healing process and creates balance and alignment quicker for the recipient.

Just as Reiki is channeled as healing energy to energize our bodies and auras, filling the energetic holes that appear when we are depleted, similarly the colors of essential oils can re-charge us on many levels at the same time cleansing us from harmful vibrations, sealing and healing our auric fields.

There is much to gain when combining the use of essential oils- chakra oils -within a Reiki treatment as well as using it after to maintain a high vibration, accelerate healing and provide energetic protection.

Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising with Essential Oils

There are great benefits to cleansing, toning and moisturising with products containing essential oils.

Adopt a simple and basic routine that can take only 5 minutes of your time in the morning and in the evening. Done regularly using essential oils based products; these are your first three steps towards a healthy body, mind and youthful looking skin.

The key to achieving beautiful skin is to adhere to a practice of using only pure and natural products containing essential oils. You should specially avoid putting on your skin products that contain mineral oils as they are not absorbed by the lower dermal layers of your skin, where your newly formed cells reside.

Essential oils in a natural base lotion or carrier oil easily penetrate these deeper layers, reaching small blood capillaries in the deeper skin layer and rejuvenating the cells from within at their formative stage. Otherwise, your cells can only reproduce themselves from their constant degenerative state; this is due to the function of your body system declining with age.

Cleansing the skin before bedtime removes make up, as well as dirt and grimes that have accumulated on your skin surface during the day. A clean skin surface not only makes you feel easy and relaxed, it also allows your pores to be free and able to breathe, with space for dead cells and waste products to be expelled from your body, preventing the formation of acne, pimples and spots.
When you sleep, your body system works to bring you a new skin surface in the morning. New cells are formed everyday and olderdeceased cells are pushed on to the surface of the skin. They can only be revealed if you clear the layers of dead cells every morning, by cleansing your skin. If you don’t, these expired skin cells stack themselves like tiles on a roof and in time become a wrinkly surface, dull looking and grey.

Toning your skin after cleansing can do wonders for your complexion. You have to avoid commercial toners containing alcohol because they can be irritating to your skin. Pure floral waters will improve your circulation and give your face a healthy glow. When properly prepared with natural ingredients, they can be used as moisturisers for very oily skin, also, help heal infections and blemishes resulting from acne.

Moisturising the skin is essential to maintain an even and smooth complexion. This mainly applies to normal, dry and mature skin types. Using a cream in the morning, after cleansing and toning will provide a protective barrier to prevent the evaporation of moisture keeping your skin surface smooth and plumped, reducing the effects of wrinkles.

An oil for the face enhanced with essential oil in the evening after cleansing and toning will nourish and nurture your skin at cellular level. This is the best part of essential oils application on your skin, as it will help your body system to form perfectly new and rejuvenated cells to be revealed for you in the morning.

Oily skin types would benefit from the application of essential oils on their skin surface after cleansing and toning. Instead of a cream, a blend of essential oils added to floral waters will be of great value to this skin type.

Essential Oils for Beauty and Skin Rejuvenation

In the exploration of the abilities of essential oils to address skin problems, we will consider the research of pioneering aromatherapist Mme Maury (1895-1968).

Marguerite Maury opened aromatherapy clinics in Paris, Switzerland and England. She believed that we can continue to look and feel young even when we grow older. She dedicated many years of her life researching specific ways that essential oils could be applied to preserve the youthful looks of the skin and the body as a whole, including the mental/emotional aspects.

The following is the summing up of her findings in her own words: “Passionately interested by works dealing with essential oils … we have discovered their vast possibilities – particularly with regards to problems of regeneration.”

Mme Maury’s research revealed that essential oils have the abilities to rejuvenate the skin by restoring the functions of the capillaries which bring nutrients and oxygen to tissues and remove waste products, playing a very important part in keeping the three layers of the skin healthy, the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous level.

For some of us, as we grow older the skin surface becomes drier, showing a loss of tone and elasticity with increased fragility. The utilisation of essential oils combined with natural ingredients in our skin and body care products can most certainly maintain the health of our skin, mind and body, by restoring vitality to our tissues, as Marguerite Maury said – “they make the flesh more succulent”.

The science of using essential oils to bring about health, well-being and overall transformation in a person depends on the right combination of essential oils at the exact dilution to meet the needs of the user. Off the shelf aromatherapy skin and body products contain a low level dilution of essential oils, if any at all, and are of no therapeutic value.

Essential oils are of different densities and properties. When preparing essential oil blends for rejuvenation, it is important to use a variety of oils, as this will create a formula of the perfect synergy; each oil passes through the pores of the skin at different rates, the thicker one slower, while the more fluid ones at a quicker pace straight into the deepest layer, bringing balance to the cells at their formative stage.
