Anger is the energetic guardian of our boundaries. When we are angry, it is often a result of feeling out of balance, thrown off course somehow in our relationship with self, and others. This experience provides a wonderful opportunity to ground our body, honor the message, and create space for the learning to be integrated into our lives.
Slow down to REJUVENATE.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver is responsible for our emotions. When it is supported, our energy is balanced and we are in the flow with life. When the liver is congested, there is an interruption in that natural flow, within and without.
To restore homeostasis, first bring your attention to your liver, a football sized organ that functions as a filter for toxicity in your environment and in your body. Place the palm of your right hand over your torso midway between your ribcage, then place the palm of your right hand over your heart, and connect the wisdom and compassion of your heart space to your liver.
Aromatherapy is another way to work with a stagnant liver. To enhance digestion, detoxification and to promote chi/ flow, hydrate, eat mindfully, and do castor oil packs with Rejuvenate as needed. Or, you can use Rejuvenate as needed by directly adding a drop to the palm of your hand, then rubbing over your liver.
Compresses can be used during detoxification, colonics, cleanses, or simply to increase vitality and create more energetic flow.
A few oils in Rejuvenate:
- Fennel aids the liver in producing the enzymes essential for properly digesting food and nutrients. Fennel also provides digestive support and relief of the unpleasant symptoms associated with indigestion and a sluggish liver and gall bladder.
- In addition to supporting emotional balance, Geranium is a fantastic support for the liver and gall bladder. Geranium stimulates the bile ducts, allowing the liver and gall bladder to release toxicity. This is a crucial component of detoxification, and the body’s ability to stave off illness and infection rather than store the toxins that contribute to poor health.
- Roman Chamomile is one of the deepest detoxifiers. It not only supports the liver in proper function, but it actually stimulates the liver to release toxins held deep in the liver’s tissues. Roman Chamomile also aids in the release of toxicity held in the digestive tract, which can help recovery from a stomach virus or a weekend of poor dietary choices.
- Blue Tansy is one of the most unique aspects of this liver blend, as it incorporates principles from Chinese medicine. According to ancient Chinese philosophy, blue tansy has the ability to balance Liver Qi, releasing the “damp heat” that is thought to be associated with pain-related conditions like Fibromyalgia, hypersensitivity and allergies, as well as migraines and headaches.
