    Essential Oils for Creativity with Emma Kupu Mitchell

    Essential Oils for Creativity with Emma Kupu Mitchell

    Essential oils not only smell amazing but they also absorb into the blood stream and work systemically on the body. And, they work through the olfactory (smell) system, which is tied closely to emotions and memory. They’re powerful!

    In this episode, I spoke with Emma Kupu Mitchell, a certified aromatherapist, who also sat on the Aromatherapy Organization Council, Britain’s version of the FDA. I wanted to explore if or how essential oils can enhance or impact creativity or a flow state, and the answer Emma gave is actually not the one I expected.

    Connecting Brilliant Minds & Creating with Idea Partnerships

    Connecting Brilliant Minds & Creating with Idea Partnerships

    Have you ever been talking with someone and something came out of your mouth that you didn’t even know that you knew? Or you say something and you didn’t know that you had ever thought that thought? And it took actually saying it OUT LOUD for you to go Oh! Wow – that’s an awesome idea or perspective or philosophy that I didn’t know I had until I said it.

    That experience is the basis for this week’s creative thinking strategy of thinking partners OR, what I like to call them, Creative Idea Partnerships to help you grow, refine, clarify, and possibly even implement your own creative ideas.

So inspirational!

This podcast is so much fun! Amy seems to want nothing more than to have us join her on an adventure to discover and expand our creative selves. It’s like having your own personal creativity cheerleader just a podcast away! I’ve already started making paper flowers and thinking about paper art projects! Ha! Thanks Amy!!

Thanks for inspiration💕

Amy is such an inspirational being. I loved what she had to say and how she made it come across. Thank you for opening up and helping us understand that it’s okay to “play!”

Just what I needed!

As a creative person, I’ve gotten away from playing and creating without the need to turn it into a money making endeavor. I love that Amy is here to encourage us to create just for creativity’s sake. I cannot wait for the next inspiring episode!
