Elemental Aromatherapy--Fire Serum


Elemental Aromatherapy--Fire Serum


The Elemental Aromatherapy line is the result of many years of personal and professional study in aromatherapy, some of which was formal study in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. 

Each person represents a different balance of the elements. Ayurveda recognizes a slightly different set of elements than TCM (Ayurvedic elements are space, air, fire, water, and earth while TCM elements are fire, earth, metal, water, and wood). At times, any of the elements may be in excess or not present enough in the body.

These preparations are designed to be used by the professional practitioner as much as the layperson. Suggested uses are given for each element. By using the serum representing a particular element, the theory is that that element will be increased and brought into better balance within the body.

Fire element is meant to warm the body. When we don't have enough fire element, we may experience sensations of cold, poor circulation, and poor digestion. 

Essential oils of ginger, fennel, ginger grass, clove, lemongrass, tulsi, black pepper, black spruce, and a dash of cassia are combined in sesame oil. This carrier oil is traditionally understood to be warming in the Ayurvedic tradition and is excellent for all skin types. The essential oils themselves are all considered to be "hot" essential oils; therefore, they are used in a lower dilution. To encourage moderate (not excessive use), this serum is sold in 1 oz bottles instead of the 2 oz bottles of the rest of the collection. Fire serum may be beneficial for excess kapha conditions. 

Suggested uses:

  • For digestive upset, slow digestion, sluggish feelings in the abdomen, gas, apply a small amount of serum to the abdomen and massage lightly in a counter-clockwise motion toward the descending colon. 
  • Rub fire serum on stiff or sore muscles. 
  • Use a small amount of Fire Serum on the chest to stimulate the mind and the mood. 
  • For chest congestion, rub a small amount of Fire Serum to the chest to help open up breathing. 
  • For depressive moods--use Fire Serum to lift the mood and brighten the spirits while stimulating the mind. 
  • Use Fire Serum on the hands and feet to support healthy circulation. 
  • Apply a small amount of Fire Serum to the lower abdomen to help with menstrual discomforts. 

Safety cautions: NEVER ingest essential oils, ESPECIALLY those in Fire Serum. For external moderate use only. Patch test on skin before wide-spread use. Aromatherapy products are to be used at your own discretion and risk.
