A few weeks ago I mentioned via Instagram that my friends and I are using a series of new moon meditations to explore each chakra beginning with the root chakra, muladhara. I brought with me an aromatherapeutic perfume oil and herbal tea blended specifically to help us better sense this chakra within our bodies and it was an enjoyable experience, so I did it again when we got to the second chakra; however, this time it was so much enjoyed that one person said: "Oh wow! This is amazing! You should make more of these and sell them!" ... and so, here we are ;-)
Svadhisthana, the sacral chakra, is associated with the emotional body, sensuality, creativity, relationships, and connection to our inner and outer worlds. Translated from sanskrit, Svadhisthana means “your own place”. Its element is water so its energy is characterized by flow and flexibility and it is directed by the principle of pleasure.
It is understood that all chakras need to be balanced in order to promote wellbeing, but I feel spending time thinking about the sacral chakra stood out for us because our lives are always so busy and we rarely make time to "stop and smell the roses". Directing attention to the sacral chakra is a reminder that it's important to enjoy life.
... The oils in this perfume are ones are all grounding, earthy, warm and romantic -- ylang ylang, sandalwood, patchouli, and rose -- with a pop of bright energy in the form of sweet orange.
... The herbal tea features soothing calendula, enlivening orange peel, uplifting vanilla bean powder, and sensual damiana which combine to create an energy that is soft, sweet and loving.
... The sacral chakra is believed to be connected to the moon, so moonstone is said to be capable of bringing both opening and soothing benefits to the body and mind. I've selected pieces that contain warmer peachy orange tones, further associating it with the colour of the second chaka
Each set includes on 2 dram bottle of perfume oil, one sachet of loose leaf tea, and one carefully selected piece of moonstone packed in a silver organza bag ready for gift giving, or to be unwrapped as a gift to yourself.
