ylang ylang

Ylang Ylang:

Ylang Ylang essential oil comes from the Canaga tree which is found in the south sea islands like Mauritius, Tahiti, Seychelles, and The Philippines. Oil is distilled from the flower of the tree to make the oil. The flowers come in pink, mauve, and yellow and only bloom at night. Ylang Ylang, meaning “flower of flowers” in Malayan, has a scent that is intensely sweet with tropical notes and exotic woody undertones.

Ylang Ylang is known to boost mood and energy, as well as relax the nervous system. This results in more joy, aids in self expression, and creates a sense of peace. It favours resolutions of disputes, even those with ourselves. Use it to find serenity within. It is well known for its aphrodisiac qualities as well as being an antidepressant, antiseptic, and may help with lowering blood pressure. It can help balance hormones and is often added to creams to help with dryness.Using Ylang Ylang oil can help bring out a fiery passion. People find its scent soothing, euphoric, and erotic. It can help awaken sexuality, especially the feminine side. It can be used in infertility spells and to increase libido. 

Some people may find the scent of Ylang Ylang to be too strong. It can be blended with lemon or bergamot to lighten the fragrance. Adding Ylang Ylang to a diffuser can help bring a sense of calm to the space. Burning it as an incense stick or in a diffuser after an argument is a great way to promote reconciliation. It can be added to any creams, shampoos, or oils. It’s a beautiful addition to an evening bath, especially a bath for two. 

carnelian crystal


Carnelian largely comes from India, but can also be found all over the world. It was called the ‘sunset stone’ by the ancient Egyptians because of its fiery hues. Most typically found in an orange to red colour, but it can also range from pink to brown. Carnelian focuses its power on physical vitality. It aids with stimulating muscles and keeping oxygen flowing through the body. This can help with lower back problems as well as flushing out organs to aid with detox. Orange carnelian in particular may help boost fertility and increase libido. Use it to light your own inner fire and explore your sexual power.

Carnelian focuses on the heart and sacral chakra which promotes vitality, creativity, and grounding in the present moment. Warriors once wore carnelian for courage. Today it can be used to encourage us to find new adventures and add fun & spontaneity to our lives. It can give us the motivational boost to create new projects or see new ways of tackling old projects. Use carnelian to free yourself from expectations and try new things. Sing, paint, dance, be free and allow its healing properties to help energize the side of you that wants to explore. Luckily, carnelian also has protective qualities and keeps you safe from envy, rage, and resentment. 

Clean carnelian frequently as it will absorb the negative energy from other crystals. This is great for other crystals in your collection, but just requires a little more attention to keep it in its optimal state to transmute its energy freely. Use any regular method for cleansing crystals that you prefer, smoke, water, or sound. You can wear it as jewelry, or place it in your home or on your altar. If you are using it for a creative boost then place it in the room that will need its energy.

cacao pods


Cacao and cocoa are often mistaken for one another. They come from the same source, however cacao is the raw, unprocessed form of cocoa. Often found in nibs, powder, chips, or even chocolate bars.  These plants grow in Central and South America and have been used for thousands of years, particularly by the Mayans, both in ceremony and for its health benefits. 

Cacao is packed with flavonoids, which help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, as well as aid in prevention of blood clots. It contains many essential vitamins and minerals. With the increased blood flow to the brain, cacao improves brain power and the ability to complete cognitive tasks. It reduces fatigue, provides stress relief, and improves the skin’s appearance. Cacao also stimulates digestive enzymes to promote gut health and nutrient absorption along with bowel regularity. It heals, detoxes, and gives the immune system a boost.

Cacao is known as the ultimate heart opener. Using cacao in ceremony helps one explore the depths of their soul in a safe space. It nurtures soul connection and remembrance of your healing abilities. Cacao heightens meditation by increasing awareness, focus, and mental clarity. It is an energy enhancer and helps develop creativity. Cacao heals both the body and soul!
