In September of last year a woman who is very special to me was diagnosed with breast cancer and subsequently underwent double mastectomy, reconstruction and treatment. It was the first time someone so close to me has been on a journey such at this one. For her it was heartbreaking, fearful, and filled with grief most of the time and the one thing she wanted more than anything outside of complete healing was hope, strength and courage to manage the disease. It's a disease that can rob women of feeling the essence of what it is to be a woman. That we can nourish a human life with our breasts and bond with our children in this very intimate way is one of the most miraculous things we can do as women. When that is lost we grieve. Outside of loving her and being present in support there was little I could do to help. Together we cried, prayed, cursed, laughed and healed. She is my biggest cheerleader and I am hers. I am humbled when I see who she is today eight months after the diagnosis. She's a warrior woman, a she wolf howling, an inspiration to all those who know her, and her aura glows with a bright yellow light.
It is for her and all the other warrior women in the world that I was guided to create this special blend of ingredients supporting the solar plexus chakra to facilitate healing. The solar plexus chakra is our body's energy center for strength of will and courage. Phrases like "go with your gut", "gut it out", and "she's got guts" are derived from this energy center. I used sea salt from the powerful and majestic ocean floor that is filled with minerals that are healing and soothing and restore the pH balance of our skin. Cacao Butter has over 300 chemical compounds that are antioxidants to combat environmental damage to the skin, but it also opens the heart and allows for a deeper authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life. Rosemary is a skin antiseptic but it is also used for spiritual purification, peace of mind and release. Clove is for spiritual protection, banishing negative forces and gaining what is sought but for the skin it is a powerful antibacterial and immune system booster. Ginger has so many spiritual benefits like courage, peace, prosperity and purification in addition to being soothing and bringing radiance to the skin. Lastly, I included a Citrine tumbled stone to energize the solar plexus chakra, Citrine's radiant yellow and gold glow activates, opens, and energizes the solar plexus chakra directing personal power and aiding in manifestation. Finally, the label depicts a wolf howling. As a Spirit Animal, the wolf supports and teaches us about matters of personal power and balance, but reminds us to be wild and free trusting our feelings and choices. This is a blessed concoction filled with prayers and positive light and my hope is that it will aid in healing both physically and emotionally.
