Everyday Essential Oils

Dan O’Neal moved to Richmond from his home town of Baltimore in 1989. It was an important move in his life, placing him on a path of Healing … spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. He trained in Reiki and Healing Touch and travelled after work in the evenings for a year and a half to study Massage Therapy at The Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville in the mid 90’s. He learned about the use of therapeutic grade Essential Oils early in 2011 and has incorporated them into his life and healing practice ever since with a deep passion.

Dan will share his knowledge of the use of about ten or more therapeutic grade essential oils in everyday life for Mind, Body, and Spirit (including emotions). Learn about the history of essential oils, what is an  Essential Oil, some first aid using certain Essential Oils, and how to use oils with our pets. Discover the benefits of replacing household cleaners and personal care items with Essential Oils. Dan will also share some of his oils with you for a personal experience of their effects.

Celebrating Crystal Skulls, Spring, and more . . .

Spring is finally here, and there is excitement in the air. The world is bursting with new growth, and so is Richmond MindBodySpirit.

Kerstin Overath, our Crystal Skull Oracle, led the line-up for the Richmond MindBodySpirit April Gathering as our speaker and host of the Karma Cafe. Kerstin shared how she first connected with crystal skulls and how to hold and receive a message from them. Whether I held a crystal skull, or Merlin, or dragon, the message of the next step on my journey was evident.

This month we enjoyed a mini-mall with Sabrina Rieder, who was back with her AURA Suncatchers, and Wendy Brown’s (Herbalistic Soaps) new soaps for April. Wendy brought along here talented friend, Shari Smith, whose jewelry collection, Designing for Royalty, was another hit.  Lastly, someone we’ve been trying to get onboard for months: Dan O’Neal with his Young Living Essential Oils. I am still enjoying all of my purchases.

Sheila Boyd, Oracle Card Reader, was back doing her thang that she does so well. New as a reader for us, Fox Mealo offered Rumi Card readings and, of course, Robyn Smith Co-Founder of RMBS had her angels at the ready for readings/healing sessions.

Last but not least, congratulations to the winners of the Door Prizes: Wendy Brown and Tom Coates.

We love that folks are opening up to their gifts and finding ways to express their creativity. We love introducing new folks to the community. There is no place in Richmond quite like the Richmond MindBodySpirit Gatherings.
