Essence of the Week: Wild Calamus Root
Calamus Root from India is a perennial, semi-aquatic plant that grows along the edges of water sites like rivers, ponds, and lakes. There are several references to Calamus in the Old Testament of the Bible as a sacred anointing oil used in many different holy oil blends for ritual purposes. She is used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicines for both digestion and nervous system imbalances.
Calamus Root is a neurological aid, supporting proper brain function and circulation. She is also great for digestive imbalances, lung issues, and pain. Calamus is a natural aphrodisiac that helps to calm the mind and relax the body. She can be used for arthritic conditions as well as chronic back pain.
Energetically, Calamus Root helps us to take responsibility for our part in the experiences we have in life. She addresses guilt, shame, and blame, helping one to become more self-confident in knowing that all things happen for a reason. Calamus helps mental anxiety and depression, and allows the senses to rejuvenate in order to be able to meditate and become more introspective about the bigger picture and greater reality that life is teaching through every experience. Turn to Calamus Root to support owning the amazing reality that you are creating.
