The Sacral Essences
Reggio Di Calabria, at the tip of Italy’s boot is recognised as the only town surrounded by bergamot trees in the world. Many other places have tried to cultivate the trees but with little or no success. Bergamot essential oil of unsurpassed quality comes exclusively from this region. It is believed that Christopher Columbus discovered the tree in the Canary Islands and transported it to Italy where it thrived better than its indigenous homeland. It belongs to the citrus genus, and cultivated like orange and lemon trees although growing up to 16 feet it seem to be more fragile than these two. Its flowers are white star-shape blossoms smaller than the orange/lemon, and its fruit distinctly yellow in colour. The essential oil is derived from inedible green fruit. Hidden in the skin of the fruits are small oil ducts, which contain the treasure of its qualities. It is a sought after main ingredient in expensive colognes and perfumes. Its fragrance is sweet, fruity, gentle and flowery hence combines well as a base note for other citrus oils like lemon, lime, neroli, geranium, cedar, chamomile, coriander and ylang - ylang. On the mind and spirit its actions are encouraging, balancing and anti-depressant. Brilliant for anxiety, emotional imbalance, stress and nervous tension. On the skin its affects are astringent, cleansing, antiseptic, deodorising. Good for oily skin, acne, psoriasis and eczema. This oil must be properly diluted.

Fennel is native to the Mediterranean region and the Caucasus but it has become naturalised in most parts of Europe. In the British Isles it can be found growing wild of sea cliffs, mostly from Wales and Norfolk southwards. In South Africa (as with many other herbs) it can be found just about everywhere, growing especially lush in cooler more damp temperatures. It was named ‘foeniculum’ by the Romans probably because ‘feonum’ translated means ‘hay’ and fennel does touch on the hay smell. It uses are very versatile ranging from food, medicinal right through to aesthetic, and for its most peculiar smell. In older times it was a common herb for flatulence. The substance within the fennel oil residue gives it its characteristics of anti-spasmodic, carminative, stomachic, aromatic, expectorant and diuretic properties. In tea form brilliant for constipation and its polar opposite – diarrhoea. Good for colic pain, the mammary glands in breastfeeding, coughs, colds, and bronchitis. Its oil is derived from its crushed ripe fruits and is also used as a gargle, or face wash preparation. The young fresh leaves are excellent for flavouring food (especially fish) and its roots and swollen leaf bases can be excellent as a vegetable (I’ve tried it and its too delicious). It can be taken as 1-2 drops mixed in a teaspoon of honey stirred into a cup of tea or warm lemon water. The honey mixture can be frozen into candy for children. It strengthens the liver and its oestrogen-stimulating properties make it useful for treating PMS and weak irregular periods. This same effect makes it popular to add in creams and lotions and used to tighten and enlarge breasts. It has brilliant moisturising effects. As a nerve tonic its can be used in aroma lamps or added to the bath. It has a calming effect on the nervous system reducing stress and balancing the overactive lower feminine emotions that really can topple our scales.

The essential oil of Ginger is extracted by steam distillation of the ginger root. The oil strengthen and is high in Yang energy therefore balances the female Yin of the sacral centre. Yin is adverse (negative), shaded (dark) and feminine and yang is positive, bright (light) and masculine. According to Chinese medicine, ginger regulates moisture and raises body temperature. It has been used in China for illnesses thought to be caused by cold and dampness – rheumatism, colds, head-aces and muscle tension. This oils antiseptic property makes it a good preventative remedy for infectious illnesses and diseases. It’s a good carminative (able to relieve flatulence). It helps reduce motion and morning sickness. Being an anti-spasmodic brilliant for flatulence and over indulgence.

This extension of the mint family is native to Europe and grows wild on dry sunny slopes, hedge banks, roadsides and grassland, usually on lime-rich soils. The further north you travel, the less likely to find this species in the wild. Naturally it’s commonly cultivated in many countries but most species are still collected from the wild in the Mediterranean region. Its generic name Origanum comes from the Greek words ‘Oros’ (mountain) and ‘Ganos’ (splendid joy), named after its attractive appearance and scent of the flowers and leaves which are found growing naturally in the mountains of Greece and other Mediterranean countries. Besides being a frequent daily used steaming herb it is still considered a remedy for all manner of complaints. The components found within this herb give Marjoram astringent, expectorant, anti-spasmodic, antiseptic, mild tonic, stomachic, and carminative properties. In herbal teas treat gall bladder disorders, diarrhoea, coughs, asthma, nervous head-ace, general exhaustion, and menstrual pain. Externally it can be used in gargles, bath preparations, liniments and inhalants. An all time favourite in the kitchen, (especially in Italy) where its flavour blends fabulously with pastas and pizzas. The wild variation has a much stronger taste than the cultivated sweet marjoram. Brilliant for anxiety attacks, grief, sorrow, emotional exhaustion and insomnia. It mixes well with lavender, bergamot and rose. It also calms an excessive sex drive (if you have the need to slow down). Monks grew it as a sedative, it was planted on graves of the newly departed to bring them peace, newly wed couples received garlands of this herb to bring them good fortune and more practically always a winner for muscle spasm and as a antidote to poisoning. Like fennel it is good for flatulence and intestinal cramps. It helps lower high blood pressure, stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, and prevents blockages in the sympathetic nervous system. It also dilates blood vessels (like the deeper orange effect). The goddess Aphrodite is reputed to have guarded as a symbol of happiness. It acts brilliantly on all muscle tissue.
