Monthly Gaia Offerings
October Gaia Offerings:
Clove Essential Oil
October is a time when we begin to turn inwards as the daylight begins to fade more each day. Retreating to our homes and into ourselves. A time to cleanse ourselves and our spaces as we settle in for the changing of the seasons. Protection & immunity boosting are major themes for this month.
Chaga is a fungus that most commonly grows on birch trees in cold environments. It is an ancient medicine, with cultural use dating back over 5000 years ago. It has deep roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as in Russia, Poland and across Eastern Europe and the First Nations peoples of Canada.
It is a nutrient rich superfood high in antioxidants to help fight damage caused by free radicals. Aids in digestion, boosting immunity, & reducing inflammation, blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. Chaga has high levels of naturally occurring melanin, which converts to melatonin in our bodies. This helps balance our bodies circadian rhythm, as well as activate the pineal gland to assists in opening the third eye (the chakra connected with psychic visions). Brew as a tea either hot or cold to release its healing properties.
Clove essential oil is distilled from dried flower buds from the clove tree native to Southeast Asia. Clove is beneficial for digestion, relieving respiratory symptoms, has high antioxidants & has antimicrobial properties to help kill certain bacteria. It can be used to help open the heart chakra and keep vibration high which will promote psychic protection. Use it for deeper meditation and to gain emotional clarity. Put some drops in a diffuser or dilute with a carrier oil like almond oil to apply to skin.
Black Tourmaline, also known as schorl, can be found all over the world. It is a highly protective crystal, providing protection against psychic attacks, EMF (electromagnetic frequencies), and negativity which helps clear thought processes to aid with decision making. It also supports all organ functions, including boosting the immune system, reducing pain, and improving metabolism.
Deeply connected to the root chakra, Black Tourmaline is extremely grounding and helps create connection between the earth and our energetic bodies. This can allow for insights from higher realms and can also help bring the user back to Earth after a healing session. Black Tourmaline can be placed around the home, especially near electronics, and be carried or worn to provide protection throughout the day. It is especially useful for gridding your house or workplace. Place near doors, windows, or other passage ways of energy flow with the intention to remove any lower vibrational energy that may make its way into the space. Make sure to cleanse Black Tourmaline often as it is highly absorptive of negative energies (use moonlight, sound, or smoke)
