I feel grateful and awe-struck to be able to put this work out into the world and to invite so many beautiful and clever souls into a circle of learning and magick!

Spiders! Piles! We’ve RELIEF for You!

Hemorrhoids and varicosities are not, in general, fun to talk about or to experience.  Yet, hemorrhoids and varicosities are a common occurrence for many folks, so we might as well take the best care that we can of our bodies and ourselves when they are a bit out of balance and stressed.  One of the best environments for healing to take place is one of honest humor, so that is why our Spritz has such a silly name – our body feels like it is crawling with spiders and we’ve got a case of the piles!  Honest and funny all at once or at least a slightly more interesting way to talk about uncomfortable condition.  Examples follow:

“Honey, I’ve got spiders again!”

“A bit of the piles today it seems!”

Our Spiders & Piles Hemorrhoid and Varicose Veins Spritz is formulated for both preventative care as well as acute relief.  Spray it directly on the spot that needs relief or follow our instructions for creating a pad for extended acute relief.

Flower + Gem Essences for the Journey: The Third Trimester

amethyst from wikipedia.org

Over the next few weeks we’ll be exploring Flower + Gem Essences that are particularly useful during pregnancy, labor and postpartum (to learn more about what Flower + Gem Essences are visit our previous blog post).  The great thing about Flower + Gem Essences is that they are good remedies that, by their very nature, can do no harm which makes them wonderfully safe to take during pregnancy.

Ok, I’m totally pregnant and it’s almost over and it’s just beginning.

OLIVE “I am revitalized”

An excellent remedy for both the third trimester and labor, Olive helps us to maintain energy during a time of great transformation, especially when we may feel that our energy reserves are completely spent.  Olive aids us in finding space to be emotionally and mentally presence even when we feel physically exhausted.  More than just bringing relief to our physical exhaustion, Olive helps us to connect the dots between our mental wellbeing, emotional wholeness, and our ability to thrive in our physical bodies.  Excellent for those folks who are feeling too exhausted to “deal with it all” because it helps them to reconnect with the ever-renewing energy of our deepest selves and find pleasure again in day-to-day life.

AMETHYST “I go with the flow”

The purple stone of Amethyst teaches us to go with the flow but not get overtaken or overwhelmed by the current.  With the early stages of labor on the horizon, there is excitement for baby and, at times, a feeling like all of the “to-do’s” will never get done in time.  Amethyst is helpful for folks who are moving quickly, but sometimes feel they are in a race against time.  In addition to its centering properties, Amethyst is also helps address those anxious thoughts that wake us up in the middle of the night and spur on arguments between loved ones.  Amethyst helps us to float gently when the waters feel tumultuous, eventually leading to a current that guides us gently back to shore.

RED CHESTNUT “I radiate calm”

Realizing that soon there will be a new baby and all of the responsibility that comes with a bundle of joy, can bring up issues of dependency, worry, and, at times, anxiety between partners.  Red Chestnut can help folks feel centered in their own ability to love themselves, to love others, and to care deeply for all without becoming overwhelmed but the unexpected nature of life.   Red Chestnut assists in facilitating the transformation of patterns of co-dependency into models of adventurous trust and a peaceful knowing that we are fully able to care and be cared for unconditionally.

Read our recommendations for the First Trimester and Second Trimester.

We carry Amethyst in our Etsy Shop and Poppy Swap Shop.  Essences such as Olive and Red Chestnut can be found from a variety of resources such as the Flower Essence Society and Bach Flower as well as local health food and natural healing stores.

Next time we will look at Flower + Gem Essences for Labor.
