Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Energetic Properties
Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is brimming with creative energy. It is a great oil to use if you are feeling stuck, lacking in inspiration or dominated by a need for perfectionism.
It is also an excellent oil for personal growth, energetically facilitating avenues of exploration into who we really are, and helping to bring about the required state of equanimity to journey within and find expression without.
The energy of Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil helps to cleanse the heart of all impediments.
This is an elegant oil which energetically reminds us to focus on the exquisite and not the mundane, so that we may allow our creative juices to flow in any direction they may wish to take us.
Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil helps to balance our male and female energies, thereby reducing inner friction and allowing us to be more receptive to our creative impulses and inspirations.
The female principle is passive and intuitive and the male principle is active and productive. Balancing Yin and Yang energy allows us to listen to our hearts desires, and to be receptive to inspiration before acting upon our creative impulses.
In physical terms Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil gently guides us to listen to our gut and our heart before deciding to act.
Our gut provides access our intuition, and our heart lets us know how we feel in relation to what we are perceiving… the mind then decides how to act, based on how we feel.
Through this process we enter the flow. Once in the flow we are in a state of grace. It is in this state of being that much can be revealed, especially about oneself.
