Wood corresponds to the body.The trunk of the tree represents a skeletal form corresponding to structure and bones. There is much strength in this as it supports a core formation ; This energy is very centering as it serves as a conduit supplying life force energies. The essential oils from the wood give our body strength and supports our emotional state. It makes sense that trees offer solace and peace just through their presence. Our lungs perform optimally when in a peaceful state, calming the nerves and allowing us to be.
There is always so much more to everything we think about. I am reflecting how when I hike the mountain paths I thank the trees along the way. There are places where I must physically accept their branches as helping hands going upward on my path. When descending I often need to be sure of the presence of the trees to guide my way. I thank the trees for giving me a peaceful place to expand my lungs and enhance my body. Even in the cold the trees provide warmth as they encompasses us with their beauty and grace along with many benevolent blessings. Think of the skeleton and the bones being enhanced as they absorb the essential oils that are applied after being immersed in a carrier base. Empowerment of the being is obtained by encompassing the incredible energies held within the vital plant forces. When we become more secure in our body structure we often gain more self esteem, confidence and security. Base notes come through and hold a formulation together as they take a prominent role in securing our earthly connection. The Coniferae which I include in this also are etheric, connecting with the Air element. It is as if the trunks, branches and needles are held firmly while reaching out to further growth and development.
The tonic essential oils are revivifying. In my notes I found an interesting fact noting that many Wood essential oil are phytoncides, that is they give off active bio chemical substances that help to preserve them. Trees and plants have inner flow much like our glandular system giving us more clues on what ways these plants speak to us.
