Can you believe it has been a year since Honest Aromas started?!! We can’t, but it has! We ordered our cards and officially went into business on May 1, 2015! Here are some pics of the changes through the year-

It has been an incredible journey in every single way for us. So many changes and so much growth; personally and business wise. I am not even the same person I was a year ago and that is a great thing! Hannah got married in that time as well!

We love helping all of you and providing you with products that are natural, healthy and helpful. We have loved meeting you over the year, thank you for your support and for reaching out to us when we are in public or via emails!

We will be offering an Anniversary Sale this month, so stayed tuned for the discounts in future blogs!  Wo0-Hoo!

 

 

Some one to blame…..

pointing finger   Connection is some thing that we all need. There are three areas  that will completely destroy that connection and those relationships that we desire if we give them any opening in our lives.  Last week we blogged on shame... Today we are talking about blame.

I can talk about this from a position of authority because, unfortunately, I have mastered it. I have shamed, I have been ashamed, I have blamed, I have been blamed through my choices and then subsequent behaviors. Unless we get to the root of the problem( it doesn’t matter what area of life we are speaking of, friendships, marriage, parenting, work relationships) it will destroy the fabric that seemingly holds relationship together.

Robert McGee in Search for Significance  says; ” Many have been broken by the false belief-those who fail are unworthy of love and deserve to be punished. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we all tend to point an accusing finger, assigning blame for virtually every failure. Whenever we fail to receive approval for our performance, we are likely to search for a reason….a culprit….or a scapegoat. More often than not, we can find no one but ourselves to blame, so the accusing finger points right back at us. Self condemnation is a severe for m of punishment.”

Another reason we seek to blame he says; “Is that our success often depends on their contribution. Their failure is a threat to us. When the failure of another blocks our goal of success, we usually respond by defending ourselves and blaming them, often using condemnation to manipulate them to improve  their performance.”

OUCH, OUCH, OUCH!!!! Oh, I see that in myself with my relationships with my children especially and I have gone to them and told them I have failed miserably here! I also see how I have done that to my husband over the years….it would be so easy for me to shame myself (because I am guilty) but I will choose to forgive myself and instead make very necessary changes.

So guilt is definitely a part of this shame and blame in our lives. Dr. Henry Cloud  in his book Changes That Heal says; ” Guilt and shame too often sends us into hiding. If we have to hide, we cannot get help for our needs and brokenness; we cannot become “poor in Spirit” and therefore be blessed. When grace comes along and says that we are not condemned for who we truly are, then guilt can begin to be resolved, an we can begin to heal.”

So if we are working toward connection and healing in our lives, we need to eradicate shame and blame from our lives. We need to help facilitate healing to others and to ourselves. Easier said than done….we all want to blame some one or some thing when some thing goes wrong, it is our nature. But if we want to live a life of healing and connection with others, we have to walk in humility and understanding.

I want to grow….it hurts. I want to be a person who is full of grace and mercy knowing all the grace and mercy that has been shown to me. I want to encourage you on your walk as others have encouraged me. Has this been helpful to you? We want to hear from you today<3

 

We Want to Hear From You!

These past few months have been busy for us at Honest Aromas. Life stuff and business stuff come together to change us and make us pretty preoccupied in the process. 🙂

Pink Rose

We’re faced with a lot of questions on where the company should go, what it should look like, and what it should do.

We try to decide whether to follow certain opportunities or look for ones that haven’t popped up yet.

In the midst of this process, we’d love to hear from YOU, our valued readers and customers! What do you like about Honest Aromas? What don’t you like? What would you suggest? What would you ask?

Part of business, especially small business, is getting a feel for what your client base needs.Our desire is to offer the best possible holistic-based aromatherapy care that we can. We want to create a community that thrives on knowledge and encouragement. How do you think we could better achieve that goal?

Leave a comment at the end of this post, or send us an email or find us on Facebook. We’re always looking for ways to better improve your experience as our reader and customer. Let’s work together to make Honest Aromas the best it can be!
