Essence Protocol of the Week: The Integumentary System and Alopecia, Hair Loss, and Overall Hair Health...

It is the month of December, and we are focusing on the Integumentary System. This system of the body is made up of the external covering of the body. The main functions of this system are to protect the organs, help with the sensation of touch, pressure, pain, heat, and cold, allow the body to move, for Vitamin D production, for the excretion of wastes, to regulate temperature, to protect against dehydration, to store water and fat, and for immunity strength against infectious organisms. This week we are looking specifically at Alopecia, hair loss, and overall hair health. Alopecia is a condition that causes the hair to fall out in small patches. It develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. Energetically, Alopecia manifests from a lack of security, a loss of a Loved one, an abrupt or painful move, shock, or anything that may make you feel disoriented. Our three favorite essences that help work on healing hair ailments are Rosemary, Lavandin Grosso, and Cedarwood Atlas.

Rosemary helps the Crown Chakra overall. She is a brain balancer and supporter of memory, hearing, speech, sight, and hair growth. Energetically, Rosemary addresses our deep seated anger, sorrow, grief, depression, and the strength to grow from the past and dream the great dream of the future. She supports overcoming challenges in order to rise above and beyond the mediocre. In speaking one's Truth and living authentically, one can only win.

Lavandin Grosso is a skin and hair harmonizer. Meaning "to wash", this powerful plant essence helps to heal the skin, address hair loss, and heal warts, bruises, dermatitis, and other infections. Energetically, Lavandin Grosso works on our fears, stress, and inner peace in order to stimulate the inner child that celebrates life, lets go of the struggle, and has much more fun than ever before.

Cedarwood Atlas comes from the name that means "Power" and has been studied to support inflammation, immunity, microbes, and repelling bugs. For the crown, Cedarwood Atlas supports Alopecia, regenerating the skin and hair, and healing dandruff and other dis-harmonies of the skin and scalp.

 All three of these plant essences can be used together topically for best results. Layering them directly onto the skin area "neat", one after the other, is the best way to apply them for alopecia, hair loss, and overall hair health. It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. In general, for the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops "neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing each essence 2-3 times a day. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat" on your skin. If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing. All essences are safe to ingest in small amounts (3-5 drops in an ounce of water is a good start). Use your intuition to guide the way, and remember that less is always more in most cases, and the body knows what's best - so always listen to it.
