According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) anger is a force that is housed by the liver and gallbladder. Usually, especially when out of balance and control, anger is viewed as a negative feeling. Often, however, underlying anger are other emotions and energies such as sadness or having a sense of purpose. The aim of treatment through aromatherapy can either be to pacify anger that is inappropriate and access the deeper emotions, or to relieve tension and stress from the body and mind. The holding of tension and stress can be the cause of many health issues. The ultimate aim is to restore the balance and capacity for tolerance and human kindness towards ourselves and others and regain our sense of purpose. This composition of essential oils has a sweet, herbaceous scent that has a cooling effect on the liver and gallbladder and contains some of our most precious and fragrant oils renowned for their healing properties.
Use the diluted blend (15 ml) for a massage oil paying particular attention to the temples and heart center of the body. Massage your chest, neck, face, bottom of feet, and solar plexus. Place a few drops on the inside of your wrists, take a few deep breaths into your liver region (right side of your lower ribcage) and, with the exhalation, allow the clearing and release of any built-up tension and tightness. This blend is especially useful during meditation practice. See below for additional information.
This blend is especially useful when used with a meditation practice. Allow the scent to synergise with your breathing. Often anger is the emotion most available to us and frequently covers up deeper feelings of sadness, grief, or helplessness. By allowing these deeper energies to be experienced our anger can be released and we can allow for deeper connection to our experience.
