Essential Oil Blend Essential Oil Information
Blend Name: Willow Eclipse
Petitgrain Bigarade (Citrus aurantium L. ssp. amara engl): This essential oil is often used in anxiety blends and is very soothing. My colleague, Marge, has mentioned using this for “monkey brain” as well. With my mind needing quieting, this essential oil is perfect to aid in that.
Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin): This is an essential oil that I have absolutely been smitten with lately. It is very grounding and somehow connects with my soul on a level that I have not yet even begun to understand. To me, I find a sense of protectiveness when using this particular essential oil - almost masculine in nature but tempered with warmth and love. It also tempers the Egyptian geranium quite well! If you want to know what a well formulated essential oil blend smells like with Patchouli, you should try my Balance or better yet, take a class with Sylla Sheppard-Hanger. Her perfume is amazing!
Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens): This essential oil has always held a very special place in my heart. It was one of the first essential oils I really worked in depth with. It is heart opening, uplifting, soothing for emotional distress, and cooling. It is a divinely feminine essential oil that offers balancing attributes that tempers the patchouli well and vice versa. Gabriel Mojay discusses it extensively in his book Aromatherapy Healing for the Spirit - I highly recommend it if you are exploring the energetics of essential oils.
Rhododendron (Rhododendron anthopogon): This essential oil is all about letting go. Letting go of anything that does not serve you from anger and sadness to both small and large energetic concerns. It is a very protective essential oil although quite feminine. Its energetics remind me of a fierce goddess who will protect what she must and let go of the rest. There is also something soft and soothing about this oil that calls to me when emotions become raw.
Orange (Citrus sinensis): When I am feeling down, this essential oil is always there to help pick me up. It is an energetically happy one that exudes protection, gratitude, strength, and self love. For an essential oil that seems so innocent, it is one that I could never be without. Today, it helps round my blend out to create a space that allows for me to work through things that I have struggled with as of late.
Blend Design: The intent of this blend is to allow for release of what no longer serves us after a very intense eclipse, while soothing, protecting, and giving us strength to see the new birth of ourselves.
Kid Safe: Yes.
Safety Data: Generally regarded as safe for use in inhalers, diffusers, perfumes, and topically when diluted.
Emotional/Energetic Qualities: Relaxing, calming, and soothing but sweetly uplifting, gentle grounding to be more present, protective, allows the release of ideas and other things that no longer serve us..
