A companion in times of quietude, grief, trauma, and integration
There are periods in life that bring us to our knees - a sudden loss of a loved one, a seasonal depression, processing a trauma. It is an initiation into a period of change we did not ask for. It is a journey that turns us inward. Initiation Blend brings us the light of a torch to navigate darkness and the warm company of a friend. Initiation Blend encourages quiet reflection and guides us through growth. When we return to the external world, we hold within us a deeper understanding of all aspects of ourselves and the rhythms of life. Like winter turning into spring, we come back more hopeful, stronger, and with greater insights on how to integrate the changes life has given us.
The Oils: Spruce, Pine, Rou gui, Jiang xiang, Grapeseed
Rou Gui (cinnamon bark) warms our Kidney yang energies (meaning our vital life force and root) helping us feel supported in the midst of the inner journey. It's like jumpstarting the car battery, giving us life again. In Chinese medicine we say that trauma or depression can stagnate the blood or put a cold blanket on our fire. Rou gui moves the blood circulation and keeps areas full or warmth and qi, so experiences can be integrated without becoming stuck. Jiang Xiang (Heart wood), native only to Hinan Island, is also a blood mover and used in traumatic injury of all types, it can even stop bleeding. Spruce and Pine help us feel anchored and safe by also connecting to that Kidney energy. They bring a deep, quiet wisdom and perspective as Pine trees can live from 100-4,600 years old.
Smells like...a mixture of the ocean and a warm hug from a cinnamon tree.

People are talking…
"Initiation is the blend I keep coming back to. The scent feels like what I need during this time of year and the theme parallels a lot of personal work I've been doing. The scent of cinnamon is warming on a soul level. It's a rich blend with an uplifting aspect, but grounding on a soul level."
"I alternate between the Completion Blend and the Initiation Blend in the morning. It helps me slow down for a minute and just get in touch with my body and the moment. It's been a great ritual that I look forward to every morning."
"I use your oils in clinic with patients everyday and they love them!"
"Daoist Drops has become a wonderful part of my self-care routine. I have the whole line and I love that each bottle comes with guidance about which acupressure points are best for application. My children request drops in their bath and I add drops to my diffuser as well. I highly recommend Daoist Drops to anyone looking for wonderful essential oils. Beauty and Refinement are my favorite blends of all!”
