Joyful Spray + Your 3rd Chakra

Most people I've read have one issue or another with their 3rd chakra, approximately where your solar plexus is located.  Ego, self-esteem, the face you put out into the world and where guilt and shame for the "I could have, should have & would have..." live.  Maybe I have synesthesia and I smell colors, but the essential oil of Litsea Cubeba (also known as May Chang) smells bright yellow to me and since it stimulates and balances at the same time, it seems like a perfect match for unblocking the 3rd chakra.  

Excellent for oily/combination/acneic skin types or for use as an aromatherapy pick me up when you need a little happiness boost. Joyful Spray is also one of the Okamura Farmacopia products featured on Channel 12!

Adding *Acupunture* Rachel Gilman to Body Mind Spirit Expo!

If you've been curious about acupuncture, we're bringing it out of the treatment room and into the Okamura Farm Market booth at the Body Mind Spirit Expo in Portland, November 1-2, 2014!

Acupuncturist Rachel Gilman from Acupuncture Northwest will perform complimentary acupuncture both Saturday and Sunday.  

If you have questions, concerns, fears or phobias, bring it!  Rachel often treats pain, digestive issues, infertility, insomnia, anxiety, depression, prenatal care and so much more.  She is a sensory healer, in addition to excellent acupuncture treatment, she incorporates aromatherapy and shiatsu.  

She also practices cosmetic acupuncture!  I tried one treatment and it's rather amazing for improving the appearance of fine lines, firming and tightening facial skin. The best part?  She accepts most health insurances!  

Stay tuned for more information about the OF Farm Market booth at BMSE!  #BodyMindSpiritExpoPDX #okamurafarm #acupuncture #rachelgilmanacupuncture

Traveling Circus

The Western Idaho Fair is coming up here.  Haven't been in years. 

I loved the Western Idaho Fair because:

  1. Idaho in the heat of summer = one of the most beautiful places on earth
  2. Getting picture taken in the costume photo places.  I never did it with a family member or friend, it was always a solo shoot.
  3. Scones.  Not the cute british kind, aka elephant ears.  Fried bread covered in margarine + honey.

But most of all, I am a carny at heart.  Able to pick up and go at a moment's notice, living temporarily + spontaneously.  

Fresh from NYC, inspired to roam freely about the cabin.  Creative Celebration + Collaboration.  Let's take this show on the road!
