Most people have heard the old belief that the Full Moon can make us act a little crazy.
But, is there any truth to that? If we think about the fact that our bodies are mostly made of water, we can only wonder: “Could the moon also be affecting us?” Think about how the moon controls the tides in the ocean. While the moon’s magnetic effect is not creating a physical movement of water in our bodies like it does with the ocean, it could be responsible for bringing heightened emotions to surface. In astrology, we associate water with emotions.
All lunar phases represent some aspects of transition. Healing with the moon cycles helps us make time to listen to our intuitive selves. It allows us to dive into the depths of what we need, and let our inner wisdom speak to us. Essential oils can have a powerful and healing effect, which gets amplified in highly energetic times like a full moon. I encourage you to start inviting them into your full moon ritual, your daily meditation practice, or just your everyday home and life. Let's do a recap of what we talk about on our call! We go over the Moon phases, the energy that is attached to it, essential oils that boost the energy and an affirmation to support the phase!

Using essential oils during the different moon phases helps to ignite your energy and give a boost physically and emotionally. The vibrational frequency of the essential oils have powerful effects on our mind and emotions and are a helpful way to support the intentions of each lunar phase. Suggested blends can support transitions on a mental, emotional, energetic, or spiritual level.
