This blend can be applied to wrists and ankles, outer ears, the third eye and crown chakra. It can be put on palms, hands rubbed together and inhaled deeply. Can be applied to the area along the outer borders of the sternum. This is where the ribs attach to the breastbone and is along the Kidney meridian in Chinese medicine.
Two or three drops can be applied directly to the skin as indicated. Some people are overly sensitive to Essential oils, and it may be best to dilute them with a good carrier oil (jojoba or coconut oil) before applying. A few drops in a diffuser is also effective.
About: The acupuncture points along the outer breastbone (sternum) help reconnect the Spirit back to the Source (Tao). When one dies, the Spirit must travel the path homeward (back to the Tao) and applying this blend along these points facilitates this process. However, one does not have to wait until dying to practice this “Return to Tao”. When one consciously reconnects Spirit with Source while alive, one lives a life where Individual Destiny is in alignment with Heavenly Destiny. According to Taoism, that is the ultimate purpose of a human life. By using this oil blend, a deeper awareness of the pathway between Tao and the manifest world becomes more familiar and this makes all transitions and transformations easier, especially the big one, the Return to Tao at the time of death. The oils in this blend help one relax more deeply into one’s True Nature and be present to the immediacy of the moment. This present moment is the Tao in constant unfoldment. There is truly nowhere else that we can be. Our minds pull us to memories of the past or imagined futures, but those thoughts are still happening “right now”. When we relax into this moment and consciously reconnect to the ever-unfolding present moment, we have much greater ease in life. This, of course, applies to the dying process as well. This blend “oils the hinges” of the gate that allows awareness of Tao into our consciousness. The sooner in life we begin to cultivate this pathway, the easier our life becomes. However, this path can be cultivated even up to our last breath.
