There’s something comforting about feeling as though we’ve done a good job. It’s more than just being appreciated by others– it resonates at a core level where we want to see our actions as effective and useful, where we funnel our energy into something that is in need of our skills. Virgo represents the universal value of helpfulness that exists in all of us, striving to improve and perfect existing structures by the application of what we’ve learned.
The Sun transits earth sign Virgo from August 23 – September 22, strengthening the collective urge to clean things up, to put things in working order, and to clear away the clutter of distraction. Simplify, the Virgo Blend, is an essential oil massage blend crafted to ground the hyperactive mind. Hard work is natural to Virgo, and we’re encouraged to roll up our sleeves and dig into any messes that need our attention. The trouble comes in when we over-indulge this tendency, either by neglecting self-care and worrying ourselves into an anxious, fault-finding frenzy, or avoiding responsibility altogether and dwelling in the disappointment and self-criticism that comes with procrastination.
Simplify is a blend of Rock Rose (also known as Cistus), Hawaiian Sandalwood, Vetiver, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang essential oils mixed with handmade Calendula-infused olive oil, aloe vera gel, sunflower oil, and Vitamin E. Rock Rose is a warm, herbaceous scent that aids the mind and body in times of fatigue and trauma. Hawaiian Sandalwood and Vetiver are woody, earthy aromas that help calm a runaway brain. These oils assist us in staying present in our integrity and sense of purpose. Lavender is associated with Mercury, the ruling planet of Virgo. It’s soothing scent helps us to adapt and remain clear in our thinking. And Ylang Ylang is encouraging and uplifting, sweetening the overall aroma and reminding us to slow down to enjoy the present. Simplify helps to relieve physical and mental exhaustion, stress, and anxiety; supporting clear, grounded thinking and calm self-acceptance. It comes in a 1 oz amber bottle with a dropper top, $14 plus $3 for S&H in the U.S.
