A wonderful healing and aromatherapy essence developed by Creation Fertility to support the fertility* journey and new beginnings. The aromatherapy oils connect with the Divine Feminine (Shakti) and the sacral chakra (yoni). Each bottle of Creation Essence is imprinted with healing love.
Rose: nurtures, unconditional love: Long a symbol of love and purity rose essential oil is an excellent tonic for the womb, calming premenstrual tension, promoting vaginal secretions and regulating the menstrual cycle. Its beneficial action on infertility aids “male” problems too. Like Jasmine it is believed to support sexual difficulties and increase semen. Rose is considered to have a soothing effect on both the skin and the mind, opening the heart and restoring balance and sweetness to the body and soul.
Geranium: ultimate hormone balancer: Distilled from the fragrant leaves of the Pelargonium. Germanium was once used as a general healing herb but I have found it to be one of the best balancing oils – harmonising extreme conditions both physically and mentally supporting anxiety, tension, moods and fears. Geranium helps relieves fluid retention and acts as a tonic for the liver. The perfect oil for fertility, menstrual and menopausal issues.
Jasmine: love and aphrodiasic: The delicate white flowers of this climbing plant are picked at night when the aroma is most intense. Aromatherapists consider it a valuable remedy for the skin, depression, helps to calm nerves and sooth emotions to help produce a feeling of well being. Perhaps the most valued oil in childbirth it is considered to hasten delivery whilst relieving pain. A superb hormone balancer aromatherapists has been using it to support post natal depression and bonding between mother and child. It is also believed to promote the flow of breast milk although I have no experience of this. Jasmine has been used to relieve spasms in the uterus and soothe menstrual pain. It is also indicated for men – helping to increase spermatozoa. The aroma is deeply relaxing and believed to be an aphrodisiac
Clary Sage: regulates hormones and emotions: Distilled from lilac flowering tops this beautiful oil has a divine aroma and the properties act as a sedative, aphrodisiac and regulates hormones specifically supporting pre-menstrual tension, painful periods and emotions. It is believed to reduce cramps and muscle spasms and insomnia from over-work, headaches and migraines. Therapeutically it can be used to encourage labour. This oil is particularly indicated for times of change whether biological or emotional!
Frankincense: supports intuition and insights through meditation and Universal Consciousness: Traditionally used to rejuvenate skin and meditation. It has a spicy lemony aroma. Frankincense helps release – letting go of over attachment (nostalgia) obsessive thoughts, mental fatigue and burn-out. Frankincense is believed to have a helpful action on the genito-urinary tract and its astringent properties may relieve heavy menses and act as a tonic to the uterus including during labour. Its calming properties may support post natal depression, insecurity and encourage trust in a positive outcome.
Bergamot: uplifting, encourages trust: Its sedative character is excellent for anxiety, depression and nervous tension. A combined cooling and refreshing quality seem to allay frustration. This oil has valuable antiseptic properties which may support the immune system plus act as a tonic on the uterus and urinary tract. Traditionally it has been used to reduce sexually transmitted diseases.
Cedar: grounding, calming and harmonizing: A Semitic word meaning the power of spiritual strength and represents a symbol of constant faith. Distilled from the wood of cedar trees, it is one of the oldest essential oils and connects with Mother Earth. Deeply relaxing and calming it offers a woody aroma. Cedars properties are believed to help discourage negative thoughts, help focus attention and support stillness – connecting with Gaia.
Buy Creation Essence to anoint, bathe, body exfoliate, moisturise, use as a perfume, or as a refreshing spray tonic, massage oil or use with the Creation Fertility Toolkit
Anoint*: Set Intention: You can use Creation Essence to set intention in many different ways. One of my favourite is to place a drop in the centre of my palm and then place my hands together. I cleanse my aura daily (personally I do this before my yoga practice but you can do it anytime) by dropping my arms to my sides and then lifting them above my head, returning my hands into prayer position above my head before bringing them down to my heart centre. I repeat this 3 times and imagine that I am cleansing my aura from all negativity. Alternatively :
Use Daily. Before beginning the anointing process imagine the outcome you wish for in your mind’s eye. Place 1-2 drops of Creation Essence into your palm. With your index finger apply the oil to the temple (mind), throat (body) and heart centre (spirit). Now place your hands in prayer position at your heart centre, bowing your head towards your hands so you can inhale, drawing in the aroma of the essence together with your positive intention and outcome into your heart centre. As you exhale open your palms upwards and blow the aroma and intention into the ether to manifest.
Bathe*: Sacral bath: 2 dessertspoons organic coconut oil/butter, 300 grams Epsom Salts or Dead Sea Salts or Himalayan Rock Salt, 1-12 drops of Creation Essence (add essence after running the bath so as not to “bruise” the oils). Light candles, dive in and soak for 20 minutes in warm bath water.
Body Exfoliate*: 1 cup sea salt, Dead Sea Salts, Epsom Salts or Himalayn Rock Salt 1-6 drops Creation Essence to 1 cup grapeseed oil or olive oil or coconut oil. Mix to combine and place in a glass jar with lid. Rub the mixture onto your body and rinse off in bath or shower. Your body will smell beautiful and also be very soft!
Moisturise*: Add 1-12 drops of Creation Essence to 30 ml of unperfumed body lotion or cream and use to moisturise your body.
Perfume* : Creation Essence is a blended oil diluted into a carrier oil which means that you are not placing undiluted essential oils directly on the skin. Therefore as a perfume you can place 1 drop of Creation Essence behind the ears and inside of the wrists – this will offer a subtle aroma.
Refreshing Water Spray Tonic*: Add 10 drops of Creation Essence to 50ml Spring Water in a bottle with a vaporiser and spray around aura, or body to revitalise and refresh.
Massage*: Massage is a very effective way to relieve stress and also release muscle tension. Massage encourages circulation and enables the essential oils to be absorbed and used by the skin and body. Choose a vegetable based carrier oil and add 1-2 drops of Creation Essence to 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of carrier oil.
