It is the month of November, and we are focusing on the Reproductive System. This system of the body is made up or 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 yeast/candida infections. They affect up to 3 out of 4 women at some point in their lives. Yeast infections cause irritation, discharge, and itchiness. Energetically, they come from denying our own needs and not supporting ourselves the way we need it the most. Our top essences to use for yeast/candida infections are Palmarosa, Sandalwood, and True Eucalyptus.
Palmarosa is an herbaceous grass known as the "Indian or Turkish Geranium". She is anti-viral, anti-fungal, and helps with UTI's, bladder infections, urogenital infections, and yeast infections. Energetically, she is calming, stress relieving, and helps us to let go of our limited beliefs. When we need to think outside of the box and go with the flow of life with grace and ease, this amazing plant teacher steps in to offer her medicine.
Sandalwood is a wood essence from a small, tropical tree. She is known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a wonderful medicine for genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary health. Sandalwood is anti-fungal, and helps with UTI's, bladder infections, kidney and bladder inflammation, venereal diseases, impotence, prostate congestion, genital herpes, and yeast infections. She is a "go to" for sexual organ imbalances on all levels. Sandalwood is an emotional healer of grief, depression, fear, and inner blocks. She helps us to know who we are so we can be the person we have always wanted to be. This amazing essence supports finding our inner joy and putting ourselves first in order to be comfortable in our skin.
True Eucalyptus wood and leaf essence is a "Gum Tree" that has been used by aborigines and indigenous Australians as medicine, and for making barbs for spear fishing. She is anti-viral, and helps with yeast infections, endometriosis, and sore throats. Energetically, True Eucalyptus is a plant that helps us feel supported and cared for so we can take in life with ease. She is grounding, nurturing, and helps to relieve agitation.
All three of these plant essences can be used together vaginally. Using an organic tampon, they can be anointed and inserted with an empowering protocol that we can share privately. Since this protocol is very precise and can also include other plants to support - depending on individual needs, we ask that you reach out to us for specific instructions. 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. Anoint onto the skin by layering cooler essences first and hotter essences last. Wait to apply nut oils in order to allow the essences to absorb first. Pour the plant medicine directly over the the areas of concern. For yeast infections, anoint over the problem area, but also make sure the plant medicine gets into the vagina either via organic tampon, suppository, or other medium for the medicine to keep its integrity. 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.
