The Spice Must Flow Scent Journey makes bathing a time to hone the skill of finding delight in the spice of life that arises in the flow of every moment. It’s about allowing ourselves to surf the emerging edges of life rather than feeling pushed by them.
Sail with your breath along warm citrus scented currents blown by solar winds carrying seeds of fresh ideas into your waking mind. Relax deeply and explore other lives filled with adventures over oceans and across deserts along past and future Silk Roads linking inner space to outer space. Be still within, the scented dappled light of ancient hamams. Check out books from Alexandrian centers of exchange spreading ancient mystery school recipes for new ways of Being and Becoming - True to Yourself everyday.
Begin by setting your intentions as you breathe in the warm scented steam. With reverence, cleanse and strengthen your hair and crown with Coriander Seed, Clementine Rind, and Ylang-ylang Flowers.
Then, choose to receive heartfelt blessings as you massage-wash, scrub and worship at your own body-temple with rich Frankincense and Cedarwood essences to inspire and empower you.
Then, to close the ritual, choose to let go of all fear as you towel down vigorously (if it tickles and makes you laugh you’re doing it right!)and then feed and hydrate your skin all over with Ho Wood, Patchouli and Bay Rhum shea butter lotion.
Found in the tombs of pharaohs, coriander is both ancient and widespread as a culinary, magical, and medicinal herb. Long associated with love charms and immortality as well as protection, Coriander Seed was once known for promoting peace between peoples. It marries beautifully with Ylang-Ylang Flower and Clementine Rind oil for a deeply calming yet warming and energizing blend that boosts self-confidence and opens the heart to new possibilities. Ruled by Mars, Coriander seed oil is specifically used in aromatherapy to ease aches, pains and arthritic conditions. It also shows promise in managing neurodegenerative diseases. Ylang-Ylang Flower Oil is ruled by the Moon and is known for its aphrodisiac qualities along with its ability to lighten depression and ease anxiety and stress as are most Moon-ruled plants. Honey Myrtle belongs to the Meleleuca family and has the highest content of Citral in that family. Citral is known to have powerful antimicrobial properties. Honey Myrtle is also known for its ability to clear lung congestion and promote healthy airways activity. Oil of Clementine Rind brings the magnetic properties of The Sun to this blend creating a synergy of the whole that is far more than the sum of its parts; it lifts you up even as it grounds you, a Sun-like quality of stamina and grace.
