Here are the energetic properties of the oils in Synchronise with Summer;
Encourages unconditional love and understanding for yourself and those around you. Rose oil is said to be the most versatile oil for healing as it affects the soul, spirit and body. Battaglia says “Rose is a sedative for the nerves and helps to release anger, despair and frustration. As Summer is a time of heat + warmth, it can certainly rile up “fire” types, causing them to feel more tense, frustrated or angry than usual. Rose is perfect for this, as it opens the heart and sooths feelings such as anger, fear and anxiety. Mojay comments “When rejection or loss has injured one’s capacity for self-love and nurturing, rose brings a sweet gentle comfort, restoring the trust that makes love possible again. By loving yourself fully, you are able to accept the love you deserve from others. Rose’s energy is likened to that of the goddess Venus, or a sensuous woman. Wear rose to foster the qualities of contentment, happiness and patience within you.“Rose is a gentle aphrodisiac which helps to spiritualise sexual relationships.”
Summer is a time to enjoy yourself, laugh and love. Let Rose open your heart and let in the jovial vibrations.
Sandalwood is a very grounding oil with an earthy undertone, it cools and balances you. Sandalwood also works well with the Central Nervous System in the body and is said to “have a relaxing effect on the nerves and may be used for hot, agitated emotional states that lead to conditions such as headaches, insomnia and nervous tension.” Sandalwood is an excellent oil for people who find themselves with a short temper, it grounds us and allows us to detach from negative thought patterns to be in the moment and accept situations as they are. Fischer-Rizzi suggests that Sandalwood aids people who want to make human contact and overcome isolation. She says that it is an ideal remedy for nervous depression, fear, stress and a hectic daily tempo. When you react to others with aggression and irritation, it is time to reach for Sandalwood.”
Energetically, Bergamot essential oil brings peace and joy to the soul. It amplifies energy, joy, and light. Bergamot lightens the shadows of the mind, bringing joy and laughter to the heart when one is stressed or agitated. It is known as the most uplifting essential oil. Battaglia says “The oil has been used in traditional Italian folk medicine for the treatment of fever.” Mojay describes Bergamot’s energetic qualities in relation to its effects as an antidepressant, “Depression due to stagnant Qi energy is the result of accumulated stress or repressed emotion. The emotion most often involved is that of unexpressed anger…Like lavender, bergamot encourages the release of pent up feelings – feelings that can lead not only to depression but to insomnia, anxiety and sudden mood swings…Bergamot oil helps us to relax and let go.”
The refreshing scent of Sweet Orange uplifts you immediately, and brings joy to your heart. Orange Essential Oil brings happiness to the heart, regeneration of the spirit, and vitality to the soul. It conquers fears and obsessions and encourages one to speak openly and honestly. Embrace your inner truth with orange essential oil! Battaglia says “According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, sweet orange oil helps to circulate stagnant Qi, especially when it accumulates, stomach and intestines.” As the emotion associated with the liver, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is anger, during the summer months utilizing this oil will aid you in releasing excess accumulated heat and anger from your body.
Lemon Myrtle oil attracts strong loving and protective vibrations to your aura. Its healing qualities are associated with past life sabotages. If you find yourself repeating the same mistakes in love, Lemon Myrtle gives assistance in moving forward and learning from the lessons you have encountered. Worwood says “Myrtle is the spirit of energetic truth and forgiveness, giving support to the unsupported and teaching us that divine love embraces all living beings.”
Lemon Myrtle smells a lot like lemongrass but will have a slightly sedating effect on the body rather than a stimulating effect, which for summer is beneficial for cooling any hot or agitated mental and physical states you may experience.
Warmth & Love,
