It is the month of November, and we are focusing on the Reproductive System. This system of the body is made up of the anatomical organs involved in sexual reproduction. The main function of this system is for the survival of the species. This week we are looking specifically at Uterine Fibroids. Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. Energetically, Uterine Fibroids manifest when there has been a blow to the feminine ego, or one is nursing a hurt from a partner in life. Our favorite three essences that address uterine fibroids are Blue Yarrow, Clary Sage, and Frankincense.
Blue Yarrow is an aromatic perennial plant that is known as the "Herb of Opposites". She is cooling and warming, circulatory and astringent, drying and moisturizing, and stimulating and regulating. Blue Yarrow is helpful for pelvic inflammatory disorder, bladder infections, moon cycle issues, uterine health, fertility, prolapse, and fibroids. She helps us to trust ourselves, letting go of "victim" mentality, and allowing the Divine to flow through for the highest good.
Clary Sage is a herbaceous perennial plant that clears the way for health and wellness. She is a urogenital aid and hormone balancer that supports the uterus as a tonic and healing agent. Clary Sage helps with PMS, menopause, impotence, cramps, and moon cycle disharmonies. Energetically, she addresses people pleasing, emotional pain, rigidity, and opening the heart after pain and trauma.
Finally, Frankincense is an amazing resin that helps to clean the blood and address growths of all types. She is a deep healing agent that works as a urinary aid, uterine tonic, and genital healer. Frankincense supports letting go of people and situations that are no longer serving our highest and greatest good. She sets us on a journey toward our highest self, forgiveness, peace, clearing, cleansing, and stepping into our authenticity.
All three of these plant essences can be used together topically. Layering them over the uterus or lower pelvic area "neat", one after the other, is the best way to apply them for fibroids. 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.
