Rituals for Rhythm & Balance
Rest, pause and Peaceful Nights each support our returning to our bodies natural rhythms and balance. Enjoy these rituals to bring wholeness and vitality as you create a cradle for real rest. These alchemical blends were inspired by Mother Nature's fluid cycles and seasons as she rejuvenates herself again and again. These powerful scents came as a way to bring us back home to our true nature which we experience when we are rested, restored, replenished and remember our sacred relationship with source.
Developing the art of rest and relaxation is the gateway to both wisdom and compassion with ourselves and each other. This synergistic blend invites you to create a cradle for restorative practices. Be kind to yourself. Give your body/being what it needs to let go and replenish itself. Let the scent draw you into deep relaxation and restoration. When you are rested, you have a fresh perspective, your mind is clear, you can focus, and your creativity is re-awakened.
Creating resting rituals helps re-set and regulate relaxation patterns that reflect nature’s rhythms and reclaim the real rest that nourishes your body/being. You can create a rest cave as your sacred space with an altar that reflects your rest intention. It may be a quiet space in your home, a favorite chair or place you lay down to nap. You can use an eye pillow, listen to sacred sounds or read poems. You may light a candle or make an offering to create your sacred ritual. Come to the practice with an empty mind and open heart. Reflect on an intention for your practice. It may be unwinding from a stressful day or situation, taking a nap or preparing for a good night’s sleep.
Pause Anointing Oil Ritual
We create a sacred practice of prayer and renewal when we practice a daily anointing ritual. Through these alchemical scents, we are initiated into centuries of tradition and ceremony that align and attune our body/being with the plant’s ancestral wisdom. Lovingly place a few drops of pause in the palm of your hand, rub your palms together. Bring them to your face, and take four deep, slow inhalations, letting the scent envelop you. Breath and pause in-between each inhalation and exhalation. Just pause and breath, feel the silent moments of presence that flows with the rise and fall of the breath in the belly.
You may anoint your forehead, kidneys, and adrenals. Pause may also be applied before you go to sleep or take a nap. You may anoint yourself before for yoga nidra, or meditation practices.
Peaceful Nights Bedtime Rituals
Peaceful Nights invites you to create a cradle of releasing and restorative practices to prepare your nighttime sleep rituals. Be kind to yourself. Give your body/being what it needs to let go and replenish itself. Let the scent draw you into deep relaxation and the mystery of dreams.
Come to the practice with an empty mind and open heart. Reflect on an intention for your practice. This may be a good night’s sleep or feeling refreshed when you awaken. You may be setting an intention for conscious dreaming or returning to a dreamscape that you have previously dreamt.
