February is about CONNECTION. In February everything is quiet, everything is in rest, breathing slowly…..the nature, the trees, our body…...everything …...everything supports us to rest and to turn inward, to do more inner work and to connect with our Heart, with our True Self. We spend more time at home, snuggling in cosy blankets, reading books and enjoying nice warm teas and hot chocolates and meditating more. So this time of the year is perfect to CULTIVATE AN OPEN HEART AND A QUIET MIND.
I use mainly Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Balance Blend, Frankincense & Sandalwood in February because they help me in this process.
YLANG YLANG reconnects us to the pure and simple ways of the Heart, while GERANIUM helps to foster love and trust. FRANKINCENSE connects us with our inner wisdom and encourages trust in ourselves so it`s a perfect oil for meditation. SANDALWOOD teaches humility, devotion and love for the Divine. It`s also a perfect oil for meditation.
In my yoga practice I do more chest and shoulder openers as they leave me feeling more spacious in my heart :)
So just chill, rest, do yoga and meditate; cultivating energy and more wisdom for the fresh and renewing Spring :)
My nr1 oils in February : GERANIUM & SANDALWOOD
A divinely beautiful combination :)
GERANIUM - The oil of Love & Trust
SANDALWOOD - THE OIL OF Sacred Devotion
SANDALWOOD assists with all kinds of prayer, meditation and spiritual worship. It calms the mind, still the heart and prepares the spirit to commune with God. Sandalwood asks you to assess where your heart is and challenges you to reorder your priorities to be in alignment with the Divine will. It assists in quieting the mind so you may hear the subtle voice of the Spirit. It raises you into higher levels of consciousness. Sandalwood teaches true humility, devotion and love for the Divine.
GERANIUM restores confidence in the innate goodness of others and in the world.
Geranium leads away from the logical mind and into the warmth and nurture of the heart. It encourages emotional honesty, love and forgiveness. Geranium softens anger and assists in healing emotional wounds. It assists in reopening the heart so that love may flow freely. Indeed, Geranium could be called `` the emotional healer ``. At its root, Geranium heals the heart, instills unconditional love, and fosters trust.
So as I mentioned; February is about Connection & Cultivating an Open Heart, these two oils are perfectly complement each other. We need an Open Heart to love and accept ourselves and to see the goodness in others and to connect to the Divine.
And of course these two oils have many PHYSICAL BENEFITS too :)
