Katrafay Essential Oil

Katrafay Essential Oil is a rare and important aromatherapy oil. Like Fragonia Essential Oil, it is subject to limited availability.

Katrafay Essential Oil is also referred to as Katafay Essential Oil. However, the correct spelling for this oil is Katrafay.

This is simply because the name is from Madagascar, and is a combination of two Malagasy words:

  • Katra: bitter
  • Fay: juice

Nevertheless, many people still refer to this oil as Katafay Aromatherapy Oil. The likely reason for this is the ease of pronunciation.

Katrafay Essential Oil Health Benefits

Katrafay Essential Oil is profoundly anti-inflammatory, making it an excellent choice for all autoimmune diseases and inflammatory skin conditions such as; acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea etc.

It is also a powerful relaxant, helping to ease tension and discomfort of overly strained muscles and tendons.

Katrafay Essential Oil health benefits are thought to include the following: analgesic + anti-anxiety + anti-depressant + anti-inflammatory + antioxidant + astringent + decongestant + lymphotonic + phlebotonic + relaxant + tonic

Please refer to the Glossary Of Terms for more information.

Wild As The Wind Ease Essential Oil Blend

Katrafay Essential Oil is a key ingredient in the Wild As The Wind Ease Essential Oil Blend, along with Plai Essential Oil and Cistus Essential Oil.

Combining essential oils makes them more potent, and this particular blend marries the profound analgesic properties of Plai and Katrafray, with the anti-inflammatory properties of Cistus and Katrafray, to make a formidable blend.

The benefits of Ease Essential Oil Blend are further enhanced when it is combined with St John’s Wort Oil, for topical application. This combination of oils can provide profound relief for neurological injury.

*If using for head injury, consider combining Katrafay Essential Oil with Cananga Essential Oil as an alternative to Ease Essential Oil Blend.

*Bergamot FCF Essential Oil would also be an ideal addition.

Katrafay Essential Oil Energetic Benefits

On an energetic level, Katrafay Essential Oil supports good liver function. Our liver is energetically the seat of our anger and frustration. It is where we place our disappointment and refusal to accept emergent events and the behaviour of others.

Working with Katrafay Essential Oil to ease the tumult, it empowers us to face the consequences of our actions, and those of others, facilitating a process through which we can make healthier decisions for the future. It is a very freeing oil in this regard, liberating us from the snares and barbs of unhealthy thought processes, so that clarity can emerge, and compassion and carefulness can be restored.

It helps to dispel resistance, whether it be to others, our obligations and commitments, or even to life itself. It shows us that all we need do is make decisions to move through our difficulties, providing the insight needed to determine what is healthy, (acceptable), or unhealthy, (unacceptable), for us as an individual.

Once we embrace the ability to make decisions to remedy what perturbs us, we can move beyond the hurt and upset with more grace. Letting go of insults and traumas, by righting our position and regaining our integrity, we are free to feel differently about our prospects.

It is from this perspective of greater clarity and integrity that we can peacefully permit the people and events, which do not serve us, to gently fall away, allowing the space for new people and experiences to enter into our lives.

When we remain stuck in anger, resentment and frustration, there is no movement. Nor is there space for growth, new insights and experiences. Only in letting go of what does not serve us can we feel clear enough to move forward, creating the space for new relationships and experiences with which to enrich our lives.

As Katrafay Essential Oil helps to restore a sense of calm and peace, it helps to improve bodily functions which permit an upward spiral to emerge. This includes the return of restorative sleep, a greater sense of groundedness and connectedness, and a renewed sense of direction.

It is an excellent oil for re-engaging with our sense of purpose, and our true passions. Katrafay Essential Oil invites us to redirect all of our misspent energy away from our furies into creative, life-affirming activities.
