Wonder Woman Blend
I love this blend! I feel as though I am walking through the woods, collecting plants and flowers, breathing in deep and smiling wide.
Today we have a full moon at 5:11 p.m. ET. This full moon in Scorpio apparently means we are to embrace our sensuality. And also because Scorpio is about rebirth, this is a time to shed our skin, release old ways and things, and embrace new lessons and new ways of being.
I adore times like these to care for myself and my physical body exquisitely and luxuriously. That may mean a salt bath, a warm oil self-massage (also known as abyanga in Ayurvedic medicine) or a delicious meal. I especially love Isabelle Allende's cookbook, Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses for inspiration.
We are empowered now, especially this weekend, to do whatever turns us on.
And because I've been stuck in bed a lot sick, what turns me on is getting shit done. That's my primary "primal need" at the moment!
Springtime is a season of action and these last few weeks of inaction can widen the breech between those who are able and those who are disabled.
Still, there are pocket of days, or even a single day, when I do feel more able. Doesn't make any sense when that is, but those special days are always unpredictable.
Sometimes it is a day when I have had less sleep. Other days I wake after a night of indulging in a few glass of wine feeling better. It's all part of the chaos that keeps us living in the moment.
This past Friday, I was able to do some meal prep for the first time in several weeks, and now I'm relishing the healthy vegetable spring rolls I made.
Another friend shared with me that she is continuing her efforts to sort through her belongings so to lighten herself up for the next stage of her life, as her youngest child graduates high school in a month.
So I created this blend for those special days when you wake and feel you just might be capable of tackling your to-do list. And to accelerate all those actions that will manifest our dreams and desires.
The aroma this blend provides will be like a rocket-booster and help you stay motivated.
This diffusing blend also sustains energy through one of those marathon decluttering, Maria Kondo sessions - especially because of the cypress.
Note that if you have brain fog, you can substitute lemongrass oil for the Melissa oil (also known as lemon balm oil).
Fire up this blend in your diffuser and get ready to get shit done.
the oil of divine grace
Native to Canada, all parts of the Arborvitae tree were used extensively by Native Americans for health benefits and for building vessels, totem poles, baskets, and clothing. Arborvitae moves us into a calm, steady grace. The aroma of this tree is excellent for grounding and for faith in the universe. This essential oil helps us to release feelings of stagnation over the difficulties in our lives and to get going again. And the aroma supports relaxation into the natural flow to manifest our ambitions.
the oil of motion & flow
Derived from the branches of the evergreen tree, cypress helps us release past baggage and supports self-reliance. Cypress essential oil offers a fresh, clean aroma. A grounding oil, I find the smell especially helpful during times of loss, sadness, anxiety and nervous thoughts (and decluttering and going through memories) can bring up all of those. Cypress also aids when feeling stuck, rigid, tense so we can surrender efforts at control. And cypress promotes a confidence in life’s unfolding and encourages us to be nimble & flexible.
the oil of zest for life
Lime is known for its ability to uplift, balance, and energize. The essential oil of lime keeps us absorbed in and attentive to whatever tasks we wish to tackle. The aroma also holds us up when faced with disappointments or loss. And can help us move through a sense of overwhelm and fears that we can’t persevere. Lime encourages focus and forward momentum so we can rejoice in all of our achievements and accomplishments.
the oil of light
Melissa officinalis, also known as lemon balm, received the name “Melissa” because of its sweet, fresh, citrus-like fragrance, which was known to attract bees (Melissa is Greek for “honey bee”). The oil is rare and expensive. Melissa brightens us up and helps us to be aware and mindful of our true wishes and our trues selves. The aroma provides a sense of being held and soothes and softens us when facing challenges and obstacles. Melissa essential oil cultivates enthusiasm, confidence and dedication to our life’s purpose.
