Turn Crisis into Creation with Cistus

Turn Crisis into Creation with Cistus

Cistus helps us find the resources within to seek change. It transforms a sense of emptiness into one of spaciousness. 

When you’re feeling stuck, without direction, or just needing guidance in making decisions, turn to Cistus as a powerful ally in accessing the wisdom within you.

The scent of Cistus is a deeply penetrating, resinous, amber one. It has the tendency to bring one back in time, encountering past memories.

Therapeutically, the aromatic gum resin from this plant has long been used as a wound healing agent. On our psyche, it helps to heal old wounds and traumas by helping us to find the gift within our struggles.

Check out the lesson below and let Cistus guide you to your inner resources.

Trust what you find and continue to journey within.

 

When you’re done ask yourself these questions:

  • What is the gift in my current crisis or struggle?
  • What can I learn from those who’ve come before me?

See Beauty All Around You with Neroli

See Beauty All Around You with Neroli

When you’re feeling stuck in a dark place, Neroli helps you to recognize the beauty all around you.

The scent of Neroli embodies the sweetness of possibilities. Its strong floral note ends with an almost tart or bitter dry-down, communicating the dualistic nature of life. 

Derived from the flower of the bitter orange tree, Neroli holds the moment in time when this plant is its sweetest. Plants first produce flowers that eventually become fruit.

By picking these blossoms for distillation, we capture the energy of the flower. In some ways, one might say we’ve sustained the sweetness of the Citrus tree while keeping its bitter nature at bay.

Noted for its tendency to alleviate anxiety, depression, and stress, this scent is an excellent choice for promoting general emotional well-being.

Who wouldn’t feel great about the scent of orange groves in bloom? Who can worry while surrounded by this luscious bouquet?

We all have the capacity to be sweet or bitter in this world. Neroli provides us with an affinity for the acceptance of these tendencies, seeing them as beyond good and bad, and instead appreciating the beauty that exists in every moment.

Check out the lesson below and allow this powerful floral to quiet your mind and heal your heart.

Choose to see the beautiful things in your experience.

Leave me a comment and let me know how Neroli is helping you to see beauty in the simple things and in surprising ways.

Revive Your Sense of Wonder with Sweet Orange

Revive Your Sense of Wonder with Sweet Orange

Sweet Orange helps us to revive a sense of wonder in the world, urging you to approach each moment with ease and appreciation. 

Sweet Orange is a versatile oil that is great in diffuser blends as it has a pleasant and familiar aroma. It’s also one that’s relatively safe for children (though for both children and adults, we recommend against using old/oxidized oils as well as avoiding use in the bath — we know this from personal experience!)

In inner work, the bright fragrance of Sweet Orange invites our inner child out to play. This sweet citrus peels away the masks of adulthood, opening up a sense of playfulness—one we often feel is too frivolous for our fast-paced lives. 

This essential oil can help revive a sense of wonder in the world, urging you to approach each moment with ease and appreciation. 

Even when the stress of life weighs heavy on your mind, the scent of Sweet Orange will lift your heart and encourage your mind to follow. 

Watch the video below and let’s play around with some Sweet Orange.

Be open to the voice of your inner child as you use this playful essential oil.

Now, if you didn’t catch that, here’s the 3 questions I’d like you to ask yourself as you sit with Sweet Orange:

  • What brings me joy? 
  • When was the last time I became absorbed in the enjoyment of an activity? 
  • How can I insert a little more fun into my day?

Extra Credit: Allow yourself to approach your next task with the cheerful qualities of Sweet Orange, and remember how effortless having fun can be. 

Leave me a comment and let me know how Sweet Orange is encouraging you to play!

Reclaim Your Peace with Patchouli

Reclaim Your Peace with Patchouli

Patchouli helps us to reframe the past so we can reclaim our future.

Patchouli is often used in blending as a base note or a fixative (something to help hold the aroma back and make a longer-lasting scent). It’s a deep resinous, ambery aroma that is a bit of a “love it or hate it” oil for most people. 

When blending for therapeutics, you might choose Patchouli for skin serums (especially for aging skin) as well as treatments for tissues that need tonifying, like hemorrhoids. 

But it excels in the mental realm as it can be calming and uplifting. 

I find that this oil is excellent at helping us to gain a new understanding of past experiences, particularly collective trauma. It can also help us find the peace that exists in any moment. 

Watch the video below and join me for a contemplative practice with Patchouli.

After you’ve watched this video, leave a comment below and share with me something that is ready to be healed for you and what Patchouli is teaching you about making peace with your pain?
