Water is supported in the essential oil blend through the alchemy of Sage essential oil, Juniper essential oil, Rosemary essential oil, Ylang Ylang essential oil and Black Spruce essential oil. Much like our unfolding potential takes time to reveal itself so does the full effect and aromatic experience of this blend take time to unfold. With a combination of top, middle and base notes you will experience a smell extravaganza within the first 5 minutes of its application.
Each oil has been selected because of its specific relationship to the water element and how they harmonize the relationship of water to the other elements.
Sage Essential Oil – Widely used in ceremony and sacred space, sage helps guide us into deeper relationship with spirit. It harmonizes the relationship between the stomach, gallbladder and kidneys and is often used as a hormone balancer.
Juniper Essential Oil – Excellent at detoxification of the liver, which relates to vision, this oil is known for many things, including helping us sleep. The relationship between the Liver and Kidneys, which are the Chinese organs that it harmonizes, helps us see in the dark and into the mystery, especially when fear is present.
Rosemary Essential Oil – Dramatically raises energy (yang) to the head. Therefore, it helps cognition, memory and thinking and even promotes hair growth. Rosemary brings clarity to our minds, the kind that exists when we are living in alignment with our deeper essence, that is housed in the Water element. It harmonizes the Lungs, Liver, Gall Bladder and Kidney organs.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oils – Ylang Ylang is a sweet florally base note, that harmonizes the Liver, Heart and Kidney. It can arouse our Kidney essence and calm our mind to harmonize the ever-important axis between the Kidneys and the Heart which are the physical and physiological foundation of Yin Yang, respectively, in our bodies.
Black Spruce Essential Oil – The rising action of Black Spruce facilitates the rising of our potential into manifest reality. Divine potential rises up from the Kidneys, where Black Spruce shares a deep affinity, through the moving function of the Wood element (Liver/Gallbladder) to connect with Spirit in the Fire element (Heart center). It centers us at our core axis.
