You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.

~Pema Chodron

Rest is a gateway into deep relaxation, restoration, and balance. When we feel oversensitive, and overwhelmed this transformative scent calls us back to center, calls us back home to our wholeness. It weaves a cradle of protection so we can nest, rooted in the primal wisdom of the body. We are wrapped in its supportive scent and a blanket of effortless, ease comes over us. We are taken into a sanctuary of stillness and peace. We re-enter the cave of silence that resides, at the core of our body/being. Rest’s soothing aroma invites us to re-set our rhythms. It’s a lullaby for our weary and depleted system to be nourished and replenished. Rest helps us remember to come back into balance and harmony with ourselves again and again. Reminding us that our source is stillness, and we reside in restful awareness.

When the body is tense, restless and agitated it is unable to drop into rest or restorative sleep. When we feel wired and tired we become disconnected from our body’s innate wisdom to self-regulate. This soothing scent encourages a few deep sighs.  A moment where we shift from thinking and doing to sensing and being. It offers a pause, and to simply breathe and be grateful for the moment.  Rest opens the doorway to the presence between breaths.  Here, we linger in the beauty of the moment and are grateful for simply being. We are invited to drift off into the quietude of emptiness, the vast spaciousness of the present moment.  Nothing to do, just rest. 

Ingredients

Mandarin, Lavender, Chamomile, Marjoram, Frankincense Vetiver et al.  Shamanically infused with love, light & blessings.

Rest Rituals

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.

Anointing Oil Practice

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 Rest 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. You may rub the oil into your neck, temples, or feet before you take a nap or go off to sleep. Rest may also be applied before or after any yoga nidra, relaxation or meditation practice. This practice can help you to unwind and transition into relaxation and rest. Pause. Breathe. Let the scent waft over you and enter a moment of mindfulness. Be just as you are, attend to each breath until you feel you’re coming back to being truly present. Each scent is a gift transporting us into the moment.
