The Essence of Amor

The name Amor has many meanings... however for Amor Aromatherapy it originated with the following symbols:
  • a gorgeous damascena rose in my garden
  • a heart shaped crystal necklace with a figure 8 carved into the centre of it
  • the moon - I am a moon child born under the sign of Cancer and my moods are very much influenced by the phases of the moon
  • the semi-precious gemstones amethyst and opal - I have always felt more connected to these two stones than any other (and my current wedding band is opal inlaid in silver).
so I sat down and worked out for me what each of these symbols meant
  • moon ~ emotional wellbeing
  • amethyst ~ spiritual wellbeing
  • opal ~ physical wellbeing (it's like it has little sparks of life going off in it)
  • rose ~ total wellbeing
  • 8 ~ constant cycle of life
the next step, I took the first letter of each symbol
    M ~ A ~ O~ R ~ 8/E
and played around with them in many ways... and, maybe surprisingly to some, AMORE came out of it about 3 weeks later.

But I didn't like AMORE, so I started drawing and sketching and that is how the coloured heart shaped crystal with the figure 8 in the middle became the amethyst in the centre of my rose, with the moon above and the opal as a dew drop off the leaf.

And that is the essence of Amor
  • amethyst ~ spiritual wellbeing
  • moon ~ emotional wellbeing
  • opal ~ physical wellbeing (it's like it has little sparks of life going off in it)
  • rose ~ total wellbeing
It was months later when someone pointed out to me that amor is aroma backwords, and love in Spanish... lol
