Hi ya’ll! I thought I’d post a vid of the making of Sandi’s Sacred Spritz. I had tons of fun, but it’s tricky… finding the right angles, light, camera, camera position, background, sound or no sound, and I’m sure I’m missing something. The one thing I know, is that my process didn’t change one bit, during filming. It is what it is – the vid, here it is.
So what is it? About a year ago, I saw an image of three things: holy water, purified water, and salt. It’s only recently that I had the guidance to add Lavender Essential Oil. I started with a 2.7oz bottle. Then, it evolved to a spay bottle. I began giving these to essential workers. Then, I realized why not other people that needed it?
Divine guidance, inspiration, or whatever you’d like to express it as, has its own origins. For many years, I thought I had to be a writer. I ended up writing three books. My favorite is Light and dark; a Pause in Writing – an autobiographical novella.
But, as layers of challenges and unresolved issues presented themselves, I was drawn to healing. And writing more books just wasn’t in the cards. So, I stopped. Writing. This is a self-published endeavor. One with sweat, love, doubt, and constant mind-changing from one extreme to another. Any writer will tell you, books don’t write themselves. Great writers are full of great advice. I created the cover image, I was the writer, the proofreader, the editor, and the publisher. I will always appreciate and remember the writing of these books, as the greatest feat of my life.
So, I’ve been blogging. I write when I am inspired. Because the advice to write everyday, simply does not apply to me. It may, and does to other writers. I’m okay with that.
Sometimes, successful writers drive that point: write, write, write, keep writing. As someone who kept writing, I can say that the process is magical. It takes you to a place you would never wander all on your own. The words, the energy, the imagination will take you there. Because you see, a good writer will do that with their story. I remember having a conversation about two years ago with my sister. I maintained adamantly, that my life would end if I didn’t keep writing. I was dead wrong. Here I am, still alive. A goof ball of sorts.
In the end, well, beginning, middle, and everywhere in between, I’m me. A sometimes writer, Sandi’s Sacred Spritzer, and whatever else you’d like to call me.
So folks, thanks so much for putting up with all this to get to my Video!
I’ve made a batch of lemongrass Sandi’s Sacred Spritz. I feel a sense of calm. I see the sunrise shine through each bottle. These come in 2oz. spray bottles: $7.00. The blue bottles hiding in the background, are 4oz. spray bottles:$14.00; I always look forward to my batch roll-outs. I also got together a lavender spritz in 2oz. bottles and think I may just stick with the 2oz bottles. For both the lavender, and the lemongrass, and adding the 4oz spritzer in both lavender, and lemongrass.
The air fills with lemony scents, and lavender sprinkled here and there. Every bottle is made with love, and special attention to each ingredient; you see, not all bottles have the exact same mix, with exact measurements. Why? I have no clue. Just that I’m guided by spirit to mix, and save questions for later – doesn’t mean I’ll get answers…
Lemongrass spritzer contains: Holy water (River Jordan, and blessed holy water from St. Thomas church when possible), purified water, and lemongrass essential oil.
Lavender mix: Holy water (River Jordan), purified water, sea salt, and lavender essential oil. Lavender essential oil provides a sense of silence; calm, peace, and a relaxed state of being which is hard for me to attain. Follow the links in this post for more info. Folks, be safe, stay well, thanks for stopping by! – Many blessings, Sandi
Life giving water. Every day, several days a week, we drink water throughout the day. The focus being, the replacement of the water we lost on that given day, or days before.
The consensus seems to be around 73-78 percent of water-bound human bodies in existence as we know it. So, staying hydrated is totally essential for our most robust life, or lack thereof, a life threatening possibility.
When I was divinely guided to make this spray with only 4 ingredients, it seemed simple. Uncomplicated. Water is the unspoken life-giver, that we often overlook.
Whether you’re a great swimmer, make trips to the beach, an adventurous pirate seeking ocean thrills, or cruising on luxury boats, being in/ on the water is a must for some.
Some people, are happy with bottles of water that they carry around. My spritz, gives immediate miniature moments of ocean spray, only in a bottle with sea salt, holy water from the river Jordan, and lavender essential oil.
I carry a 1oz bottle in my purse and am loving spraying lavishly in my surroundings, wherever I may be. May you also find your happy water place!
