Our June AroMagic Kit: Herbs and Oils for protection and intuition is here! AroMagic is my new co-ed course on aromatherapy and herbal magic. Each month, we will learn about two essential oils and two herbs that relate to a central theme. In June our theme is protection and intuition. Members will learn not only what the metaphysical properties and uses of the herbs and oils are, but how to use them to make DIY products for at-home use.
This kit is aligned with the herbs and oils we will study in June, our fifth month of class. Aromatherapy is one of my soul passions and talents, and I hope to share it with as many of you as possible. With this listing, you can purchase the herbs and oils we are going to cover in class. Because essential oils come from plants, they carry the energetic properties of the plant they were extracted from. So when you work with these sacred tools, you’re layering the energy of the plant medicine with the magic of aromatherapy. This is where the olfactory system, which is strongly linked to our deepest subconscious, comes in. We can literally tap into our deepest memories through the power of scent.
June AroMagic Kit: Herbs and Oils for protection and intuition
First, the herbs of June. You will receive one (1) tin each of these loose herbs: osha and vetiver. Now, I can’t reveal too much here because we will be covering these herbs in our classroom in June.
Osha (Ligusticum porteri)
Osha is a perennial herb classified within the parsley family, harvested for the medicinal and magical benefits of its root. It grows only in sub alpine zones, between 7,000 to 10,000 feet. Today, osha root is most commonly ingested for its wellness benefits and its support of the respiratory system, through chewing the root directly or brewing in a tea decoction (it tastes delicious). But it is also used in magic, burned for protection against bad spirits or omens and ceremonially cleansed in waterways to bring rain.
Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides, Khus, Akar Wangi)
Vetiver is a fragrant, spiky bunchgrass within the Poaceae plant family, and can grow up to six feet tall. It is a relative of citronella, lemongrass, and palmarosa, and bears a similar appearance to these aromatic family members. An anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and mild sedative, this Root Chakra fortifier banishes negativity and helps smooth out the grief process, while promoting restful sleep. Its overall balancing and calming qualities are even said to mitigate ADHD. Vetiver helps alleviate muscle tension and joint discomfort when applied to targeted areas of the physical body. In magic, vetiver’s aphrodisiac properties are put to use in love spells and love draw rituals, especially potent for attracting same sex partners.
The oils we will work with in June are cedarwood and sandalwood. You will receive one (1) dram each of these oils.
Cedarwood (Cedrus (atlantica, libani), Juniperus (virginiana)
Cedarwood is a must-have essential oil that can be derived from various species of the cedar tree, which is a subspecies of the Pinaceae plant family. There are dozens of trees among the cedrus genus, and they grow in many places around the world, always in cold climates. It bears several deific associations, including Artemis, Persephone, Odin, Osiris, and Ra. Druids believe cedar to be a relative of the Tree of Life. The great mystic, King Solomon, used cedar in the building of his temple in Jerusalem, and the cedar tree has more mentions in the Torah than in any other religious text. However, it is also considered a sacred element in the Pagan feast of Imbolc.
Sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum)
Sandalwood oil is highly prized for its woodsy, sweet aroma, and for its anti-viral, anti-septic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a popular base for incense, perfumes, and a wide range of cosmetic products. Sandalwood oil has long been an integral part of religious ceremonies and traditions throughout India and other Eastern countries. The sandalwood tree itself is generally regarded as sacred, and as such, it is used in various religious ceremonies, including weddings and birthing ceremonies
Sandalwood brings mental clarity and relaxation without causing drowsiness, and it can also be used as an effective aphrodisiac. Join us in June to learn more about it!
