Yemeya Essential Oil Blend
Essential Oil Blend Information
This blend is an exclusive limited edition blend for Ladies Healing Day with very limited quantities available online.
Blend Name: Yemeya
Essential oils: Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Rhododendron (Rhododendron anthopogan), Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum)
Blend Design: This blend was inspired by the Goddess Oshun, also called Yemeya for the waxing crescent moon that the Ladies Healing Day event will occur on.
She is the Goddess of love, fertility, prosperity and order. I liken these ideas to that of the essential oil Clary Sage. Clary Sage is one that brings great comfort to the womb during our cycles and can be very nurturing emotionally so it seemed the perfect essential oil to start this blend.
Stories told about her include those where she is known for healing the sick. These stories I felt connected to the Nepalese sacred rituals where Rhododendron was used to heal various ailments. As an essential oil, it is soothing and very supportive of the body's own healing abilities. Rhododendron is also helpful in letting go of emotional concerns...to feel free in one's own power and feel empowered versus hindered by stresses.
She is one who is not easy to anger and is known as the Mother of African sweet or fresh waters. She is also thought to love things that are sweet. With May bringing warmer temperatures and the need for a nice cool breeze, I chose to incorporate Spearmint for its sweet, cooling, fresh aromas.
Yemeya (Oshun), is also considered a great protector for the poor and mother of all orphans. She is noted as being able to provide support where it is needed - acting as an anchor. The need for an anchor in this blend was one that required an essential oil that was soft, yet strong and loving while providing what is needed to provide strength to the blend. The perfect essential oil for this job of providing strength during periods of weakness is my beloved Sandalwood.
Aroma: Honeyed visions of a Goddess are encompassed in this exotic and floral blend with hints of cooling mint reminiscent of cool river waters that are soothing and healing.
Kid Safe: Yes.
Safey Data: Can be used via gentle diffusion and used topically diluted properly.
Emotional/Energetic Qualities: Calming, soothing but sweetly uplifting, gentle grounding to be more present, protective, reminiscent of love and higher callings.
