I am the alchemical gold of all that is alive within me.
Lemon and creme blend with a ginger core and a warm patchouli and amber base to create an earthy scent that is at once both unusual and familiar. A nourishing spiced milk, but not chai.
STORY OF THIS PIECE:
A catharsis is defined as a process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from strong or repressed emotions. A misconception of emotional release is that we can simply "let it go", severing our connection to it. However, I find that a release means to be "set in motion". Freed from being unseen, unheard, and unfelt, this emotional energy can now be released from the space it was taking to become composted in the soils that nourish your roots, like leaves falling from a tree.
Patchouli supports us in being fully present with our physical bodies through its grounding and stabilizing nature. And in doing so, patchouli inherently supports our connection to the Earth. This plant spirit helps us to acknowledge, heal from, and release distorted thinking about one's body and prepares the spirit and body for deeper union.
This stone helps rebuild the emotional body. It's resonance with the root and crown chakras opens portals on both ends of our energy spectrum. This aids our connection to the healing and purifying light while simultaneously anchoring our truth in the Earth.
Aromatic, evergreen, deeply rooted, decay resistant, and with widespread branches, Cedar embodies what it means to be nurtured by and to contribute to community. Cedar has helped sustain civilizations throughout time, exemplifying how our gifts and open hearts too are needed by those around us.
The oil of focus; lemon inspires joyful involvement in the present moment by infusing the soul with energy, confidence, and alertness - shifting self judgement and fears into something more positive and uplifting.
Ginger is considered the oil of empowerment. With ginger, we are persuaded to be fully present in the co-creation of our lives by reclaiming our power of choice, commitment, and integrity.
Born of Sun and the resin of ancient trees, amber aids in deepening our connection with the light. It has long been associated with the Egyptian Sun God Ra. it has also been known to ease discomfort and often adorns the necks of infants who are teething. It is a purifier of lower vibrational energies
