A continuation in my Aroma Blends series.
This blend is about assisting you in turning around your thoughts, taking them from the negative to the positive.
Turnaround the thoughts you are having, from I should to I will, from I wish to I do, in the process turning around the direction of your life. When you are making changes on your Life Journey, there are many times when you sit and think, I should or I wish. Take control of your life, leave the old thought patterns behind and move ahead by turning around these internal sayings to create positive energy that will support your journey ahead without the heavy energy of others pulling you back and down. This blend is focusing on speaking up in a manner that will allow you to move forward in your truth, to speak that truth to yourself.
This blend contains three essential oils: Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), Spearmint (Mentha spicata) and German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)
Middle note, throat chakra
Cypress is used physically as an astringent and styptic, calming, antispasmodic, and a neurotonic. These properties bring with them the emotional aspects of:
- drying up the flow of negative thoughts
- calming the mind
- balancing the nervous system
When direction is needed, when the ability to stand up for yourself is lacking, the will-power is weak, Cypress plays an important role. When an idea takes hold, Cypress is to firm up that idea, to take it and hold true to that idea. It also allows you to transition to these new ideas, and to hold true to them once that has occurred, while allowing the past to be let go and left in the past. It can assure the ideas are given confidently, with an inner peace and wisdom that the path is true. Cypress assists in counteracting the weak willed, which comes with the indecisive words such as I should or I wish. It gives balance to the true path of I will and I do.
Cypress will allow the journey to move ahead, with confidence, strength and balance, ensuring the doing of the life journey occurs, without being blocked by indecision. Interestingly, while writing about Cypress, the negative attributes of being blocked came into being, until the positive attributes were brought forth, then the flow occurred with strength and determination.
Top note, throat chakra
Spearmint is used physically as an anti-catarrhal, cicatrizant and digestive. These properties bring with them the emotional aspects of:
- releasing internal anger that focuses on your guilt at what you should have done
- healing the scars of the old, and allowing the new thoughts to move ahead
- breaking down the fear that is associated with moving ahead, with turning the thoughts around to a new direction
Spearmint allows you to release any guilt that has been holding you back, and empowering the weakening words of I should or I wish. It releases any anger from the past that is driving the indecision that is holding you back.
Spearmint will bring communication of the stronger words of I will and I do, with clarity, energy and invigoration, ensuring that the words have been digested and are communicated with an uplifted and carefree spirit, away from any guilt and internal anger.
The use of spearmint will allow the choice of the words to flow strongly, with consistency and reliability. The words will remain true to the purpose of I will and I do.
Middle note, throat chakra
German Chamomile is used physically as an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and decongestant. These properties bring with them the emotional aspects of:
- soothing the frustration of the negative thoughts
- releasing the negative thoughts that are cramping the movement forward
- stimulating the apathy that these thoughts will create
German Chamomile will allow for the organization of the thoughts to occur, to sift out the negative thoughts holding you back, and allow the clear communication of the positive thoughts that are required in your current life journey.
The ability to clearly break the pattern of the negative thoughts is the benefit of German Chamomile in this blend. It will allow you to stop criticizing yourself and let the negative, weak words go from your vocabulary and allow the positive, strong words to come forward without the apathy that has been holding you back.
