The Flower of Life – Sacred Geometry – Sacred Lunar Eclipse Oil

Standard

lunaroil

 I have only made 6 of these sacred alchemy oils, which are available on my ETSY store.

This is one of my newest intuitive creations, called The Flower of Life.

Every aspect of the process of creating, and bottling this beautiful oil has been deeply intuitive, personal and sacred to me and designed for your personal sacred use. I didn’t think up this blend, it came to me from the Source of all that is.

Compiled and blended at the Full Red Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Libra on 14 & 15 April 2014 in Perth Western Australia with with my powerful Fluorite crystal, and infused with Reiki nightly during the waning moon. The intention of this Sacred ‘Flower of Life’ Oil is based on Balance/Harmony, Expansion yet grounding, and removing blockages on all levels to allow new patterns to take hold and unveiling a hidden harmony or connectedness.

Fibonacci numbers frequently appear in the numbers of petals in a flower. The positions and proportions of the key dimensions of many, if not most, animals are based on Phi. Examples include the body sections of ants and other insects, the wing dimensions and location of eye-like spots on moths, the spirals of sea shells and the position of the dorsal fins on porpoises. Even the spirals of human DNA embody phi proportions.

Creation & Ingredients

The infusion of the 15ml (0.5oz) oil is made according to the golden ratio measurements (the fibonacci sequence, Phi, the Divine Proportion) and is an infusion of Organic Sunflower Oil (Sunflowers are prime examples of growing in the Fibonacci sequence), and local Western Australian pure aromatherapy grade essential oils of Agonis Fragrans (Fragonia) and Santalum Spicatum (Australian Sandalwood) -up to 40% EO in the bottle. A piece of Western Australian Mookaite crystal is anchored in the bottle.

My beautiful and aromatic Santalum Spicatum, a male (Yang) oil, is sourced from a special population of Sandalwood trees in a particular part of Western Australia. The supply is 100% managed and sourced by indigenous Australians and has been used for thousands of years by indigenous Australians as a relaxant and to promote focus. For tending to the unseen wounds of the heart and spirit, healing them so that you can be strongly and fully in the power of who you truly are. The spirit of this oil provides strength to persevere and overcome your fears and challenges so you can become the person you were truly meant to be.

The uniqueness of Agonis Fragrans, a female (Yin) oil, is its ability to work at a deep level, releasing both physical and emotional blockages. This gentle yet powerful essential oil possesses the ability to bring harmony, peace and balance to both physiological and emotional conditions, it is effective on all body systems. My oil is sourced from the southwest region of Western Australia.

A French aromatherapist, Dr Daniel Penoel, discovered that the ratios between molecular families in Agonis Fragrans EO and the proportions between the various molecules are arranged according to the Fibonacci Curve / Phi ratio / Golden Ratio! Because this Golden Proportion is reproduced at several levels, we obtain a picturesque molecular structure that is described in modern physics as Fractal. To find a single essential oil displaying the Golden Proportion within a Fractal structure is absolutely unique and helps explain Agonis Fragrans’ amazing power to energetically harmonize and rebalance.

Crystals

Green & Purple Fluorite – my 10 year companion stone cleanses and stabilises the aura and all chakras. It absorbs and neutralises negative energy and stress. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally. Fluorite boosts the immune system and stimulates the regeneration and restructuring of cells and DNA.

crystalMookaite – reflects the various colours of the Australian earth. She gives the desire for new experiences and the openness to see all the possibilities and choose the right one. Mookaite also encourages a deep connection to the wisdom and ancestors of Australia as well as helping to release emotions such as fear and anger.

How do I use the blend?

The blend can be used wherever you feel the need. The oils are blended in a base oil (organic Sunflower oil) so can be applied straight to the body (meditation, reflexology, chakra work) or sacred object (Jewellery/amulet/candle). Because it is a pre-blended oil it can’t be used in a diffuser.

When doing any form of healing on yourself you can apply a drop or two to your palms and inhale the aroma. You can also apply a drop or two to your feet or wherever you feel the blend and healing is needed whether that be a chakra, meridian or for example the heart.

If you are doing a healing on another ask the person who is having the healing session to inhale the aroma. Another way is to put a drop or two on a tissue nearby where they can smell it. You can also add a few drops to some base oil for massaging or apply straight from the bottle where where needed as above.

It works well when applied to the upper chakras of the body, where blockages occur and have become stuck. These can involve issues of grief, lingering hurts and emotional enmeshments stemming from unresolved family and other core issues and of course, pain and hurt from loss of love and relationships.

 This is oil is priced at $30A and can be purchased here – ETSY store.

My Clairscentience shop is my way of giving service to others, I do not make much profit from sales, and what I do get goes into my love of oil therapy and towards ensuring my life affected by illness is enriched.

How one run changed my life – part 2

Standard

This is a continuation from part 1 of exploring how my life has dramatically changed but also what I have had to face about myself and learn.

One of the most interesting lessons I have learned is about body image and self worth. I have always had self worth issues and earth has been such a big school by providing me with events that have challenged me to find strength as a woman. There are a few memories of mine that initially stand out such as my first ever relationship at 19 where I suffered 5 years of emotional abuse which caused severe panic attacks and to the point of suicide, workplace bullying,  to times as a little girl where after a kidney operation a boy at school randomly punched me in the kidney, or when my sister and I walked across the school oval and two senior males intimidated us and put rubbish down our clothes. I never had a good relationship with my body, in fact when ever I felt hurt by something externally I wanted to punish myself for it. These days that is called self harm.

I am bringing this all up because I want you to see that what we experience in the outside environment, and what we feel, can eventually reflect in our body too. Not surprising that I have a condition whereby my body attacks it’s own tissue in every cell of my body.

Before I became ill, I was the fittest and happiest in my body, but you see that was all still too superficial because I had not dealt with the emotional scars that were there. We seek so much outside of ourselves when what we really we need to do is search within. When I went to Brazil on my spiritual trip, we all got pedicures one afternoon as a treat and bonding experience. This was extremely emotional for me and I was very uncomfortable with it. I had so much grief in relation to my body and I didn’t love it. Having someone touch my paralysed feet, and withered legs, and showing them love, reduced me to tears.

The thing is, I cannot control my body anymore, and I had to move to a point of acceptance – let go of the shame, feeling ugly, frustrated or sad. This is my body, but I am not my body.  I am slowly learning to love parts of my body, that I didn’t like when I was well. This body has changed so much it is not so recognizable to me anymore, but I have to make the best of my relationship with it. I entered this life in this vehicle, this body, and at the end of my life I will be leaving it.

This is me now, 58kg (from 70kg illness has eaten away at the body), I have no balance and cannot stand unaided, no muscle strength, and in this picture I am in pain  after a bad fall (I have fallen over 100 times at a guess), but I have and honour who I am and choose to smile regardless – because it’s hitting home more and more these days that I am not my body.  And I am learning more about who I really am and why I am here and that I am valued, beautiful and worthy and you would never treat your best friend the way we do to ourselves sometimes!

  • Adorn your body in your own unique way – it really is your temple, your abode
  • What you put into your body – from environment, to food, water and thoughts, affects your well being now and in the long run

  • Love the body you are in, you are uniquely beautiful

How one run changed my life – part 1

Standard

The truth is I am not the woman I was 5-6 years ago. I don’t even recognise that woman any more!

She thought she had figured everything out in her future life. All her disappointments, heart aches and early life feelings of not belonging were meant to be swept away and replaced with security, love and belonging. I talk in past tense because it is like a ghost, this is haunting me now.

Everything was heading in a direction of  destruction and lessons that would be a test of every aspect of my life.
The title is correct, one run run did ‘instantly’ change my life.  But the anatomy of dis-ease is comprised of a life time of circumstances in my environment, and possibly even triggered from lives before this.

Who was I then?

I was the fittest I had every looked and been in my entire life and 31 years old. I was strong and adventurous, couldn’t sit still. I ran 10 kilometres (6.25 miles) regularly, did martial arts, walked, did yoga and boxing. I weighed a healthy 72 kgs (158 pounds) for my 6’1 frame. I had a good job, was married, lived in a nice place by the beach and adored two cats who were like my babies.

But… there were cracks

I was missing something in my life, my now ex husband rarely saw me, I was suffering severe panic attacks and anxiety through bullying at work, I punished myself through exercise and I didn’t nurture my heart and soul. I felt trapped and lost. Deep down I felt I had left a part of me locked away and I was convincing myself this was how things were supposed to me. The thing was I was living his life not mine. My dream in life has never been focused on the physical or the money. It was about shared experiences embraced with my love, and feeling free to be the person I was.

I still didn’t know it would get worse…

Illness began to manifest….

I began to get severe back pains running, and excruciating calf muscle cramps every night. There was something happening in my body but no one knew what. Then one winter afternoon as I always did, I put my sneakers on and walked to the oval to go for a much anticipated run. I took off and then my right foot gave away, no pain, just a limp at the ankle and unresponsive – it just wouldn’t work and I couldn’t stand up on my toes.I felt quietly scared, and this just amplified when I got referred to doctors, specialists and every other type of therapy in between with no results – this would continue until today. My husband dismissed my fears and eventually  gave up on me.  Facebook publicly told me my marriage was over and he replaced me with someone he could live his dream life with. I look back and realise now, he would never have handled what I have become now and I could not offer anything. I began to wonder if any one would be willing to pick me up, dust me off and help me put myself back together, and love me again.

I spiralled into an abyss of an uncertain future…

I lost the strength I felt I had. I lost independence, security, love and a life, even though not perfect, I lost the chance to change course whilst I was healthy.I even nearly died one night, I punished myself for everything and slept in a makeshift bed in a room of the house and cried myself to sleep. I had the door closed and candle burning. I woke to alarms (thankfully) and the room full of smoke. There was soot on the walls and carpet, around my nose, mouth and eyes. I was alone.

To see through these eyes and heart in life now is so different, and I have been grieving for a long time.  Sometimes we have to lose everything in order to face what we really want in life.

Frangipani (Plumeria) Oil in healing and symbol

Standard

Frangipani is one of my favourite essential oils to work with and it is also expensive to purchase (10ml =up to$40).  But I couldn’t simply live with out it – the  sweet scent of buttery soft  floral petals enhanced by citrus is very appetizing!! I remember in my teens I would try to make my own flower infusions (not successfully I might add). I find Frangipani a wonderful companion to Australian Sandalwood (another favourite of mine).

My house is blessed with this beautiful tree, one sheltering my bedroom window and the others framing the front of the house. It’s beautiful waxy cream and yellow flowers make me happy, and it is a joy to see the flowers reappearing between December and April each year.

frangipanihome

Frangipani is one of the most enticing and captivating scents due to its uplifting and soul soothing qualities and Ancient Indians believed it to be the “Tree of Life” due to its healing capacity. The oil will instantly relieve stress and replenish the mind and body, to induce peace and tranquility in your internal and external awareness. It also helps one to regain confidence and self-esteem, while soothing and relaxing the nerves and muscles of the body.  

In the language of flowers, Frangipani (Plumeria) are said to stand for love long in absence and it is associated with “love” in Feng Shui. According to Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs (by Scott Cunningham; Llewellyn Publications, 1984) the frangipani (plumeria) is associated with the feminine, ruled by Venus, its element is water, its deity is Buddha, its power is love and its magical uses are in love spells.

“Warming” oils — such as those from Frangipani, Sandalwood, Lotus flower, Frankinense, Cinnamon and Basil — are said to have a calming influence on those suffering from fear, anxiety, insomnia or tremors, according to the principles of Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old Indian holistic science that seeks to balance mind, body and spirit.

Here is an overview of the oil properties

The art of fluid emotion

Standard

I’ve coined a new word inspired by my love of all things sensual and in particular the profound psychological and physiological effects of natural oils. Clairscentience (the art of fluid emotion) will be my goal when creating my natural perfumes or skincare products. I want to invoke a theme, a story, a memory. Blending oils is therapeutic and a creative process for me and it connects me energetically with nature; essential oils are considered to be the blood or life force of a plant, flower, herb, wood etc.

I have a large selection of pure essential oils as well as cosmetic grade fragrant oils, and I am currently awaiting the order of some very fine and rare pure essences which I am ready to be inspired by. Here’s a little journey into some more rare and expensive oils which I will be using:

blackcurrentBlack Current Bud (Ribes nigrum) from France -Smells like sweet raisins, dry-fruitiness with tangy and deep earthy undertones. Adds an almost wine-like note to fine perfumes (middle note). In perfumery, Tom Ford’s Black Orchid features black current. It is rich in fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties.

hay

Hay Absolute (Foin coupe) from France – Smells like deep, balsamic, tobacco, grassy rich aroma of freshly cut hay. Delightfully sweet, herbaceous, tenacious. Blends well with ylang ylang, bitter orange, tobacco absolute, clary sage, lemon and bergamot.

seabuckthorn

Sea Buckthorn (organic) (Hippophae rhamnoides) from Lithuania – smells like sweet, strong musky scent. Skin benefits include aiding the healing of wounds, burns, acne, dermatitis, and skin balancing. In fact the extract is a super oil. It comprises the rare Omega 7 fatty acid, which promotes the proper cellular function and health that benefits hair, skin and nails. It is key in collagen production that slows down ageing.

tobacco

Tobacco Absolute (Nicotiana tabacum) from Bulgaria -smells like sweet, slightly smoky, rich aroma reminiscent of fine pipe tobacco. Adds depth to natural perfumes, especially masculine, creating intrigue to the most exotic florals…Jasmine, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang.

tuberose-absolute-

Tuberose Absolute (Polianthes tuberosa) from India – smells like warm, honey-like, sweet flora aroma, peach leaf and spice-like underones. Theraputic use includes overcoming intimacy blocks, nervousness, stress, and negative attitudes; benefits intuition, creativity, sensuality, peace of mind, a positive resolve.

carnation

Carnation Absolute (Dianthus caryophyllus) from Egypt -one of my favourites, it smells like spicy, floral with strong green notes. It promotes healing of the skin and to increase vitality that not only softens and replenishes the skin, but creates a scent that many find soothing and calming to the spirit. Good for wrinkles, eczema and rashes.

douglas-fir

Douglas Fir (organic) from France -smells like fresh, balsamic, soft aroma of fir needles -very christmassy!. It is a lovely oil that lifts your mood and acts as an antiseptic, antifungal, calmative, disinfectant, expectorant, and nervine. Great for colds and chest infections.

oblossom

Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus aurantium) from Egypt -another favourite of mine, smells like an intense rich aroma of Orange Blossoms. It is very sensual and heady!! I want to try it with Frangipani and Violet Leaf :).

jasmine

Jasmine Absolute (various – from Egypt and India) -One of the most comforting oils it smells like sweet floral or can be darkly opulent and spicy. Often used as an aphrodisiac, balancing hormones, good for pregnancy as it eases childbirth, antidepressant, sedative, and dispels emotional blocks. Improves the skin elasticity, scars and marks.

Poem expressing the art of fluid emotion…

The Rabbit is Dancing in the Garden
by Tiffany Anne Tondut
(inspired by the fragrance Ambre Noir by Angela Flanders)

You give me
le jardin and le lapin. Untying
with my tongue, I try:
le lapin dans le jardin.

“Oh?
The rabbit is dancing in the garden?”
No, the rabbit is IN the garden.
“Ah! Zhen pronounce it ‘dohn’ not ‘danse”
you laugh.

 Ce soir
you mock my le’s and la’s, catch out
my stuttering accent as I
process into compounds, into
stems.

Then
merci pour les corrections…….I blush,
dispersing blooming pheromones
of scent, evoking lingerie…

……….its girlish spread…………….
……….of budding…………….
print…………………………………..

arousing words I needn’t say,
enough
to make you twitch.

Coconut Oil Moisturiser

Standard

I have been interested in natural oil therapy since I was a teenager, and even before I gained a Diploma in Natural Oil Therapy, I was studying and reading about plant healing properties, and would be found grinding herbs and making my own concoctions.

One of my favourite ingredients, that I swear by, for skin and general health is organic extra virgin coconut oil. I use Nuilife certified organic Virgin Coconut Oil, that is non-GMO, non bleached, fair trade and extracted and packaged within an hour. If you are interested in this product you can visit the KokonutPacific website.

Coconut oil is an exfoliant and all over skin food, providing deep nourishment for dry and damaged skin and is the ideal anti-aging ingredient. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin’s surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. It prevents free radical formation and can protect against developing liver spots, blemishes caused by aging and sun damage. It is so easily absorbed into the skin and cell structure limiting damage.

Coconut oil has an abundant source of Medium-Chain Triglycerides, which when applied to your skin, your natural good bacteria convert these Medium-Chain Triglycerides into Antimicrobial Fatty Acids. Antimicrobial Fatty Acids prevent viral, fungal, and bacterial infections, including yeast! Antimicrobial Fatty Acids act like nature’s natural bodyguards for your skin.

I have created a lovely moisturiser, that not only smells divine but is enriched with pure essential oils (not fragrant) properties that will compliment the properties of coconut oil.
