Flower Essence Massage Oil Recipe



Being a sensual woman means engaging all of your senses!  Our senses of smell and touch are very connected to our sensual energy, and self- massage is a great way to tell your body how much you love her.   If you are new to tapping into your sensual side, or want to explore ways to deepen your experience with Feminine sensual energy, I recommend the Sacred Sexuality: Discovering the Goddess Within online course, which includes great exercises that would work well with this oil.


Here's how to make your own flower essence self- massage oil in four easy steps:


Step One: Set aside a mixer bottle (I recommend a 2oz bottle in cobalt or amber, which can be found in most health food stores).   Select an oil as a base or carrier.  This is important because many pure essential oils cannot be used directly on the skin.  Use organic or high quality:

Jojoba Oil
Olive Oil
Almond Oil
Coconut Oil
Wheat Oil

Make sure you have a glass or ceramic bowl handy to do your mixing!  Add enough carrier oil to fill your mixer bottle 3/4 full.
   
Step Two:  Choose an essential oil or blend 2-3 fragrances that resonate with you.  If you are new to essential oils, try starting with just one fragrance that you really enjoy.  (Most health food stores have tester oils, but after the first few sniffs you may need to take a break to reset your senses).  Also, make sure the oils you use are pure grade and organic- any fillers and preservatives will weaken the therapeutic effect of the oil.

Add  6-8 drops of essential oil per 2 tablespoons of carrier oil:

Sensual Fragrances:
Patchouli,  Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Benzoin, Bergamot, Hyacinth, Majoram, Vanilla, Rosemary

Yin (Cosmic Feminine Energy) Fragrances:
Rose, Angelica, Geranium, Thyme, Vanilla, Sage, Corriander, Hops, Oregano, Roman Chamomile



Step 3:  Add 10-15 drops each of up to 3 Flower Essences

Hibiscus: helps to form a bridge between sexuality and heart-centered sensuality, especially when sex feels cold or detached.  This flower essence integrates the Fire and Water elements, bringing warmth, caring and intimacy back into our sexual interactions.

Alpine Lily:  helps to integrate the root and crown chakras, so that spirituality and sexuality can both live in the embrace of the divine feminine.  This is a great remedy for women living in patriarchal societies, who often feel disconnected from their true feminine power, reproductive organs, or lower chakras.

Pussy Paws: increases our ability to receive and explore the sensation of touch, opening the boundaries between self and other. It is a great flower remedy for when we recoil from touch, as well as for when we want to be more receptive to the world at our fingertips.

Pretty Face:  helps to heal dislike of our body or physical appearance, by cultivating an appreciation for our radiant inner and outer beauty.  It is an especially useful flower essence in this formula if there are parts of your body that you'd like to improve or try to hide (such as wanting to lose/gain weight).


Step 4:  Make it Sacred
After you've added all of your ingredients, stir well before pouring into your mixer bottle.  Remember, your thoughts and intentions vibrate on the same frequency as flower essences and essential oils.  Recite an affirmation or prayer while mixing your oil, and give your blend a name that embodies your intention.


Rub your massage oil liberally into areas of your body that need nurturing and attention- especially those areas that are a conflict for you (breasts, thighs, and tummies are all great areas to show love!).  As you massage each part of your body with the oil, recite an affirmation that affirms a loving, healing relationship with yourself.  Your oil can also be added to a warm bath.

This is a wonderful ritual to repeat daily, but if that's not possible try for once a week or month.  I like to recommend days that happen on a cycle, like your birth date  (the 7th of every month, for example), first day of your period, new moon/ full moon, etc.  Light a candle, burn some incense, and take the time to honor....  you.

ENJOY!
