PURE VEGETABLE GLYCERIN as a facial moisturizer?

Hi Everyone!  As you know,the topics we post are based on you -the reader.  A great deal of interest has sparked on organic and natural skincare.  First of all, should you have any medical  concerns or questions you should always consult with your healthcare professional.  Each individual responds differently to products regardless whether organic or not.   This blog is intended to offer suggestions and you should check with your doctor first if you have a medical condition or have any questions.

Okay, let's talk PURE vegetable Glycerin.  Glycerin is a humectant and it is a clear-colored liquid. What's a humectant?  It simply means that it absorbs water from the air and brings moisture to your skin. This allows for your skin to remain super-soft and hydrated.  It is very important that you purchase PURE vegetable glycerin by your local vitamin store or whole foods.The product is very inexpensive  depending on store but normally around $5.50.  This will last you a long time because you only need a tiny bit and it has a lengthy shelf life.  If you are sensitive to smells-not to worry-it is completely odorless and won't clog your pores. This is a very thick and sticky substance and I like to dilute it with Rosewater.  Okay, so how do you use this on your face? 

--First time use try it at night on one side of your face and  in small amounts. Make sure that you are not sensitive to it in anyway.  AVOID eye area completely. Okay?

 If you can pour some of the glycerin in a small glass bottle with dropper (cobalt) that would make it easier to use.

 Place two drops of Glycerin in a little dish and three drops of rose water or regular water.  Gently mix and apply with a cotton. Depending on your skin-you may feel a slight warmth to your skin but if you find uncomfortable then rinse it off.  

You may prefer to simply (like I do) spritz your face with rose or regular water first and then apply a tiny amount of glycerin.  The warmth to your face is not harmful but if you are uncomfortable then rinse it off. You can use it under your make up and for me it temporarily shrinks my deep laugh lines (don't tell). Vegetable Glycerin is hypoallergenic and is antibacterial making it great for acne prone skin. Some people use it on their hair and love it.  Personally, I have never tried it on my hair but intend to and will share the results with you. There you have it! Another inexpensive way to take care of the skin that the good lord gave you. If you have any questions about this post or anything on this blog feel free to email us at cieloscent@gmail.com.  We love hearing from you!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

English Standard Version
19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

CREATING A WORK SANCTUARY.



Designing Rosaries is a labor of love and most  -Rosary makers- believe that it's a calling.  Our  love for the  Blessed Mother inspires us to share our gift with those who seek Jesus through the  Rosary. As I create your Rosary-- bead by bead-- I pray for the person receiving this precious gift. It is a serene place for me when creating Rosaries.


I  surround myself with music and scents that connect me to God's Grace. My work environment is the same regardless
whether I work from home or in the studio. The Rosary Studio is 
my work Sanctuary.  What's a work Sanctuary?  It's a place where 
work has meaning to you and to others. It's a place that motivates 
you to jump out of bed with enthusiasm to another work day.  You 
connect with your true essence which inspires you to be more 
creative in your workplace. Many people are working from home 
nowadays but fail to create a pleasant work environment. The best 
work spaces are often small.  Set the tone of your day by creating 
warmth around your work space.  Make your job your "work 
Sanctuary" and you will improve productivity and be a much 
happier person. . 

Many Blessings from your Rosary maker. 

 Prayer of a Rosary Maker
Thank you loving Mother for this precious gift, the rosary.
Guide my hands and my heart as I fashion these beads to be used in your honor to praise thy Son. Let each bead be filled with love and patience; let love pass through my fingers to unknown hands; and let patience prevail where prayers may seem unanswered. Teach me that I do this task only through the merits of your divine Son, for without him I can accomplish nothing. Let my numbers be known only to you and to Him. I offer this for the greater glory of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
 

Amen

HOMESCHOOLING

So you're thinking about homeschooling? You need to be clear as to why you want to home school your children. Homeschooling can be a wonderful experience for both child and Parent.   I would like to stress some important factors involved in this undertaking. 

- Be clear as to why you have chosen to homeschool.  Are you taking your child out of traditional  schooling or are you starting from Kindergarten?  Connect with a homeschooling group that can help you get started such as LEAH    http://www.leah.org.  I suggest you speak with other parents that are currently homeschooling so you can get a clear picture.  I strongly urge you to connect with a home based program such as Clonlara -http://www.clonlara.org -to assist you with the paperwork that is involved.  In New York State there are strict rules that you will need to adhere to in order to homeschool.  For example, there are quarterly reports that must be submitted on the work covered and schools like Clonlara will maintain those records.  The quaterly reports are prepared by them to be sent to your school district. If you do not send quaterly reports, the school district sends a notice to the Department of Social Services which in turn send an officer to investigate possible educational neglect.  Quite often it is a mistake on the school district's part but it is up to you to make sure that quarterly reports are received by them.  You will get to know the person handling your child's file so get to know he/she for a smooth homeschooling experience.  In addition, home based programs will request your child's complete school record and keep it on file.  

-Homeschooling has come along way from years gone by and it's no longer a "foreign" concept.  You need one parent that will remain in the home to create a positive and functioning school day.  You -the parent-will be responsible in arranging social time, gym and other activities that will occur outside the home.  Most people think that homeschool children have no social life.  This is a truly inaccurate thought.  In fact, they are exposed to children from all different backgrounds.  Joining the homeschooling organizations within your community also helps the parent.  

-This is not an easy undertaking and I strongly suggest that you consult with other parents and organizations.  This is truly a commitment on your part but the experience is like no other. Homeschooled kids tend to be well-spoken and well-rounded individuals. College is an easy experience for most because they have been independent learners for some time. There are many advantages to homeschooling but it must be right for the family.  Homeschooling is 24hours a day not simply a portion of your day.  

-Most parents will tell you that homeschooling has been the hardest job but the most rewarding at the same time. Do lots of research and remember that this is a family decision.  Life changes with homeschooling but the rewards will last throughout your child's life.    

Proverbs 22:6
English Standard Version
Train up a child in the way he should go;
    even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Peace to you.

EMBRACE LIFE

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS8b-UzvT32OBPtWmJ1wT1939VjwC55bblJSveKwvDPcK5cwEUQ   “Instructions for living a life.
 

                Pay attention.
 

                Be astonished.
 

                 Tell about it.”
                  Mary Oliver





We all have a story to tell with chapters that we wish we could just erase. 

We have written about forgiveness quite often on this blog.  Personally, I know 

that-forgiveness- opens the door to the "new" by letting go of the past. 

 When you let go, you begin to embrace life. 

You develop a hunger for life and begin living your days differently. 

You pay attention to those things that you never noticed before.  

The thing about embracing life is that it INSPIRES you to do great things.  

Are you inspired to a new career, owning  a business, relocating to a new state, or just starting over? 

 If so, set a plan in motion and just do it! 

 Life all by it self is a wonder but what you can do in it will astonish you! 

Share what you have learned with others.  There is a tremendous gift in telling your story. You keep your enthusiasm alive by igniting others to embrace life.  

Life is made up of moments and we need to value them.  It's not till we realize that our moments are but few or cut short  that we decide to "embrace" life.  

Don't live in the shadow of your past hurts and resentments.  

Give yourself permission to embrace life and to be happy.  

May the Grace of God be with you.

PRACTICE GRATITUDE

Enjoy the Gift of Summer!
Hi Everyone!  
The kids are out of school and 
summer is here!  
I like to think of summer as a 
time of reflection.  The beautiful weather allows us to recharge and prepare for the winter months. During the next few months include gratitude in your reflection.  Think of the blessings that surround you everyday.
  
Ephesians 5:20
English Standard Version )
20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

 If you are going through a tough time in your life allow the summer to begin your healing process.  Go to the beach, take walks in the park, enjoy nature and reflect on the blessings that you have today.  Gratitude is where it all begins when making plans for the future.

PRAYING THE ROSARY

http://www.padrepiofoundation.com/Padre%20pios%20rosaryBeads%20Padre%20pios.jpgTHE APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried, He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

 

THE OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.   Amen.

THE DOXOLOGY

Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen. 

Glory be to the father, son and the Holy spirit. Amen

O my Jesus, Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell.  Take all souls into heaven, especially, those in most need of thy mercy. Amen.

THE HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. 

THE SALVE REGINA

(Hail Holy Queen):  Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life our sweetness and our hope.  To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.  Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

LET US PRAY

O God, by the life, death and resurrection of Your only begotten Son, You purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech You that while meditation on these  mysteries of the Holy rosary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

FORGIVENESS is our eraser.

When I was shopping, I  came across this over-sized eraser with big bold letters printed: "For BIG Mistakes".  Wouldn't it be nice if we could simply erase our life blunders?  There is no doubt that we all make mistakes. Well, I'm here to tell you that -you- do have an eraser in hand.  GOD forgives us and this is- our- "life" eraser.  The Lord Almighty wants you to be truly sorry for whatever you have done wrong. He also  wants you to forgive yourself.  There is a tremendous guilt attached to our mistakes.  Forgiving ourselves begins the healing process. It erases the guilt so we can begin again. 
Ephesians 5:8
English Standard Version (ESV)
for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

For Example:  If you have hurt someone you love, begin by forgiving yourself.  You also need to allow the other person time to heal and rebuild a trust in you. It truly takes time to create a new history with another.  Don't expect the same relationship of the past.  Rebuilding trust in any relationship takes time and patience.  BIG mistakes- we all make them but what are you going to do to make things right?  Go to God first-ask him to forgive you and then please forgive yourself.  Forgiveness is a very powerful emotion and will change your life when put into action.     

 Grace and blessings on your path

YOUR STANDING OVATION awaits you!


I came across a video on- you tube- of Susan Boyle's first audition on Britain's got talent.  A 47 year old woman that -let's just say- didn't look like your typical "younger" singer auditioning. When asked why she was there her response without hesitation responded, "I want to be a singer".  She was then asked why she thought she hadn't been successful and her response was that no one had ever given her a chance. The moment that Ms. Boyle appeared on stage she seemed doomed to failure by the audience.  In fact,  the audience and judges were not expecting much from this singer but perhaps a laugh or two. What a surprise, when Susan Boyle began singing!  A powerful, beautiful voice that needed absolutely no training.  It was just magic and the audience immediately began cheering her on with amazement at the immense talent.  The judges had a look on their faces of sheer delight as if finding hidden treasure.  This remarkable woman with  a voice of an angel hidden from the world simply by mere perception. The assumption that she was a joke and couldn't possibly sing cheated the world of her talent for many years.  Susan Boyle is now being recognized and validated  as a "singer". This has empowered and  placed within her a confidence that radiates her beauty to the world. The person that you least expect quite often does great things with their life.

If you have a dream, go after it like Susan Boyle.  It must have been frightening to put herself out there in front of the world but she did it anyway.  She stepped outside of her comfort zone and just did it!  You can too!  First, you need to be clear on what you want in life.  She wanted to be a singer and there was no doubt in her mind.  What do you want to do with your life?  It doesn't matter if you are starting in the middle (40"s-50"s) or out of high school.  Next, place your dream into action!  What are the steps needed to make your dream come true?  List those steps and scratch them off as you accomplish each one. A dear person in my life once said, "baby Steps" are needed in getting things done.  Well, he was so right!  Those baby Steps accumulate into big accomplishments. If you have a dream don't keep it in your head, put it into action!  It is your gift to God and the world to use the talents instilled in you.. Don't worry about what others may say.  YOU be your biggest fan and watch the magic happen in your life too. Think BIG!!  
Friends, your standing ovation awaits you but it's up to you to take the first step.  

Thank you, Susan Boyle, your courage and success has inspired us all to follow our own dreams. .  

May the Grace of God be with you.

FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT

 

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” 

-Mary Oliver

There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves walking upon a rocky road. What if I were to tell you that there is a gift at the end of that road?  I guess you wouldn't want to hear that as you sit in your sorrow but it's true.  First of all, God walks with you and sends the right people to help you through.  Sometimes, we are so lost in our troubles that we don't see God's signs. Psalm 23:4
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 

As I write this, am reminded of a closure to part of my own life.  It turns out that it was the best thing to happen and with it came a gift.  Whatever your challenge today know that you are not alone.  Pay attention to God's signs and pray.  Prayer is a powerful tool especially in times of turmoil. Life will present us with moments that urge us to make choices.  Will I make the right choice or the wrong one?  Seek guidance through prayer, good friends and family. Of course, the final decision is up to you.  Getting off that "rocky road" is a process but at the end of that road your gift awaits you.  The "aha" moment will be yours alone to understand.  Friends, keep moving forward.   God will shine his light on your path. 
 Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

"Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints."

O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (state request here). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.


(Then say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be)






Prayer to St. Anthony as your Patron Saint

Saint Anthony, whom I have chosen as my special patron, pray for me that I, too, may one day glorify the Blessed Trinity in heaven. Obtain for me your lively faith, that I may consider all persons, things, and events in the light of almighty God. Pray, that I may be generous in making sacrifices of temporal things to promote my eternal interests, as you so wisely did. Set me on fire with a love for Jesus, that I may thirst for His sacraments and burn with zeal for the spread of His kingdom. By your powerful intercession, help me in the performance of my duties to God, myself and all the world. Win for me the virtue of purity and a great confidence in the Blessed Virgin. Protect me this day, and every day of my life. Keep me from mortal sin. Obtain for me the grace of a happy death. Amen

THE TEMPLE OF GOD

David plays his harp to soothe King Saul


The Harp has been considered a healing instrument and is one of the first instruments mentioned in the Bible. What role does the harp play in medicine today?  Enough that some hospitals and other medical facilities incorporate harp therapy as part of their post operative care.  Harp Therapy is still being studied and being introduced into hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and even spas throughout the country. 


                                        

                                        The benefits of live harp music:
                                        Reduces stress
                                        Eases the childbirth delivery process for the mother
                                        Aids in post-operative healing
                                        Reduces the need for pain medication
                                        Improves mood and spirit
                                        Balances blood pressure and so much more.  

The documented Health benefits from clinical studies go on and on. 
A small harp such as the picture below is used for therapy.

The Rosary Makers Harp (:

This harp was designed especially for me according to my specifications.  I chose the wood, the type of strings and you can even have a design hand-carved as well. 
I chose maple because it produces a clear and crisp sound. It takes the harp maker about 3 months to complete.  For many years, I played on a folk harp which are considerably larger but  I must say that my therapeutic harp has a powerful voice.


Therapeutic harpists  provide soothing music so we play to benefit the bedside patient. I encourage you to research Harp therapy. 

 We are not medical experts and strongly suggest that you consult with a medical professional for any medical concerns and advice.

 1 Samuel 16:23
  And whenever the tormenting spirit from God troubled Saul, David would play the harp. Then Saul would feel better, and the tormenting spirit would go away.

The grace of Jesus Christ be with you
