The Milliner Who Fell in Love with Aromatherapy
Gabriela Dror makes beautiful hats. Devoted to creating quality millenary, she understands the importance of choosing the best materials for each hat’s foundation as well as its ornamentation.
Dror has been interested in the healing power of nature and in aromatherapy specifically, for a long time. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. The oils used in aromatherapy are extracted from the leaves, roots, and stems of a variety of plants known for their health properties, either by distillation or expression.
Having seen first hand the many benefits that come from making essential oils part of one’s daily routine, Dror wanted to share that knowledge with others. When she decided to become part of a company whose specialty was essential oils, Dror knew she wanted to commit to one that put as much personalization, quality, and care into its oils as she does her hats.
When Dror’s dear friend Dr. Carole Franklin signed her up in 2017 to join the Young Living company, a manufacturer of essential oils, Dror knew she had found her perfect match. Dror was touched by the wellness testimonials of Young Living’s clients and impressed with the company’s precious oils, its standards and ethics, and its international support and generosity. In her words, “Young Living is not only a global leader of essential oils, it is a community for others. By giving back and spreading love and joy, Young Living members’ voluntary support is monumental. The Young Living Foundation builds communities and schools and helps re-build lives after natural disasters.”
Dror believes in the tremendous benefits of all Young Living’s essential oils. After CKW LUXE asked her for her five favorites for the purposes of this article, Gabriela selected the following and told us how best to use them:
Frankincense was known as the miracle healing oil during biblical times. And with good reason. It can help relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reduce pain and inflammation, and boost immunity. When diffused, its earthy uplifting aroma is perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Added to a hot bath, frankincense can help wash away the troubles of the day. It is also effective when applied topically to the soles of the feet. In addition, frankincense oil helps maintain radiant skin.
Joy is a blend of Young Living’s most inviting oils. It contains ylang ylang, geranium, jasmine, palmarosa, and rose and is formulated to induce a sense of romance when diffused. It can also be directly inhaled or diluted and applied topically. Joy has a fresh floral aroma with notes of citrus that come from the essential oils of bergamot, lemon and tangerine. Young Living describes it as an uplifting blend of pure essential oils that creates magnetic energy and brings happiness to the heart.
Geranium essential oil is carefully steam-distilled from the fragrant flowers and leaves of the geranium. With a sweet, floral scent, it has many topical and aromatic uses, including high-end perfumes and skin care products. Its gentle aroma encourages peaceful, spiritual feelings. This makes it perfect for your living room or meditative spaces. You can also add geranium oil to a steamy bath to create a relaxing spa-like experience.
Finance is an essential oil blend of bergamot, lemon, palmarosa, ylang ylang, mandarin, rose, geranium, jasmine, Roman chamomile, and coriander formulated to encourage positive emotions and increased feelings of abundance. It brings clarity and alertness and is designed to help you take steps to improve your finances, so you can live a life free of debt. It can be diffused, inhaled directly, or diluted and applied topically.
Build Your Dream
Build Your Dream is a blend of many essential oils, including lavender, ylang ylang, frankincense, Melissa, tangerine, bergamot, juniper, and geranium, to name only a few. When used aromatically, it empowers and clarifies and helps you find the way to achieve your dreams.
Gabriela Dror has found her passion in Young Living essential oils and wants to share it with others. She hopes to help them succeed in finding their purpose, abundance, and wellness. As she says, “I help aspiring people to accomplish their goals, so they can ultimately be free, happy, and content, and live a healthy prosperous life.”
