So I am on day 3 of exploring self care! My word for the year is exploration so I am looking at all things with an curious eye. Even the simplest of things like self care. I am playing with doing some self care everyday to add more of it to my life for more fulfillment and energy. Our body and spirit likes to receive love and attention. Giving to ourselves is a magic potion that we seem to miss. Take care of yourself first so you can better serve others a law that rewards us with extra juice to share with others. It puts filling up in our control rather than waiting for others to care for us.
Today I want to share my love of elixirs. Count St. Germaine was a Master of elixirs and not doubt I had a life learning with him. He was a French Count that the elite went to for youthful, healthful elixirs. I love taking things, smelling things, surrounding myself with lotions and potions as a woman. Woman were the medicine healers at one time and even today when you are sick, your mom is usually the one dispensing meds or chicken soup. Woman continually share products and tips of ways of health. It is part of our nourishing role. I use these to nourish myself and it greatly supports me.
I use Clinical Homeopathy and share remedies with others. This art supports you emotionally with a chronic that helps your basic emotional state to stabilize. If you are overwhelmed, there is an elixir for that. Angry, in grief, low self esteem, etc. all can be managed. We go through phases where different conditions about us warrant some emotional support. I presently am on Nat Mur which is for grief or loss. Many divorced people can get balance from this or one who has lost someone to death. I find this allows me to bring stability to what is and not feel the loss so deeply, kind of expand my energy field to the new condition. I also use acutes as they are called, for colds, skin rashes and the common things of life.
I use tinctures and herbal remedies also. Some I use for emotions like anxiety, I take passionflower when I feel that emotion. I take tumeric for inflammation to support my body. I take herbal mixes corresponding to the day I was born for support. I take Nighttime Nirvana if I can't fall asleep. I put magnesium cream on my feet to support that too. I take eyebright to support my glaucoma and cell salts that help with an old mono virus. These are all plant medicines and the body recognizes these ingredients for we are made of the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms. Our body likes the elements of the earth to cure and clear.
I use essential oils daily to support my emotional state too. I have Joy and Fun from Young Living, I have Abundance and Stress Relief. I use a peppermint roller for pain as my bengay. They support emotionally, physically on many ways our organs and processes. They are state shifters or mood lifters by awakening our brain through the olfactory system of smell. I use Aurosoma Color Therapy. They have beautiful bottles that all should have on their vanity. They have the same vibration of color, plants, crystals and heal our auric body. I can't really explain them but they work and am always using a color. I love to grab these things throughout the day to shift me, support me or inspire me. I love these self care options and so does my body. I don't take regular aspirin or over the counter drugs. These all help me with no side effects.
I encourage you to play with these things! Some more favorites of mine: Auyervedic oils for my face some evenings with my Kasa Wand, Standard Process whole food supplements to aid digestion and help with feminine balance, Asea elixir to support the communication network in my body. flower essences too. I am an elixir Queen. I am curious, try things and see if they work. I like doing things and find it playful and fun. I consider it the art of being a woman! I encourage you to experiment with elixirs for health and self care.
This is simple self care you can do throughout your day for yourself. It feels good, supports and gives a magical twist having a purse like a medicine bag. Others giggle at me yet when they have an issue, they ask me what I have to help. They know I use the healing plant kingdom and that it works. That is where all our drugs come from. They like to play with it and me. One of the arts of being a magical woman! I like it!
