Fall is the season of grief, a normal part of loss and letting go.
Grief can show itself in many forms. Sometimes it is even hidden or disguised as something else until a wave of deep sadness comes seemingly, out of nowhere, and forces us to recognize it is there. Grief has 5 to 7 stages, denial, and anger can be a mask of grief. As Autumn turns to Fall, unresolved emotions and experiences resurface asking for attention. Just as the leaves are falling from the trees, we are being asked to let go of old patterns, habits, emotions, and beliefs that no longer serve our spiritual growth process during these intense transformational times.
Fall: Metal Element (Air)
Metal is forged from rocks and stones; the minerals of the Earth. Rocks/metals form the structure and strength of mountains, riverbanks, and skyscrapers, just as the metal element rules structure and strength on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels in humans. As metal wire forms the basis of telecommunications, so do the metal systems in the body rule the peripheral nervous system and communication between bodily systems. As air, these organ systems breathe in spiritual energies and oxygen through the lungs and skin to sustain the flow of operations in the body. Metal (air) rules excretion from the body – carbon dioxide through the lungs, waste through the large intestine, and skin.
The lung and large intestine systems relate to grief and the fall season according to the Chinese 5 Element understanding of healing and life. Because of this, we are offering both Lung and Large Intestine Blends on special through October. Oceanspray Flower Essence is a key essence in both blends. Burdock and Wild Gooseberry essences, as well as Clear the Air Aromatherapy Mister, are also on special through this month.
Lung Organ Energy Meridian Blend
Use Lung Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you frequently experience shallow breathing, lung congestion, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, or colds. Sadness, grief, loss, rejection, abandonment, depression longing, and sense of emptiness are emotional symptoms of Lung imbalance that may lead structurally to a contracted, caved-in chest. A person with Lung system imbalance often has difficulty breathing in the energy of life – prana – and exhaling to fully engage life.
The Lung OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical lungs and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. This blend aligns you with the rhythmic order of life, breath. It supports flow through the peripheral nervous system as you engage the ebb and flow of life and loss with ease. Structurally, it encourages your chest to expand as, emotionally, you experience acceptance for your unique self. You begin to recognize your brilliance, your self-worth and to share your true self with joy.
According to the Chinese 5 Element understanding of health, the metal element’s season is fall and the yin meridian is lung, which is most active from 3 am to 5 am.

Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend
Use Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience constipation or diarrhea, bloating, colon or skin cancer, TMJ, stiff or spine, carpal tunnel syndrome, eczema, psoriasis, or chronic rashes. Emotional symptoms of large intestine imbalance include holding onto old stuff, stagnation, feeling guilt or regret, thinking you or situations are never good enough. People with large intestine imbalance are often stoic about loss or hardship, rigid, uptight, or perfectionists.
The Large Intestine OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical large intestines and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. It supports the large intestine in its job of final sorting and elimination. The Large Intestine Blend activates letting of what is no longer useful on any level in your life – attitudes like not good enough, emotions like old grief or guilt, and old self-images or relationships that do not honor your worth. Physically, it unblocks stagnation and rigidity allowing flexibility, movement, and change.
According to the Chinese 5 Element understanding of health, the metal element’s season is fall and the yang meridian is the large intestine, which is most active from 5 am to 7 am.

Burdock Flower Essence
Burdock Flower Essences supports the energetic process of “unraveling” the bonds between anger and heavy metals, which allows the body to release both the anger and the metals. I have no scientific proof of this. However, I have seen how this has happened to my clients and myself. The Burdock Flower Essences also encourages you to nourish yourself and enjoy life.
Use Burdock essence when you are caught up in deep old anger, especially if the anger is directed at someone, usually an authority figure. Although the anger may be triggered by a current person/situation, the origin for this quality of anger is from a wound earlier in this life or a past life. This anger may also be related to an experience of grief or loss.
As Burdock Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM a release of stuck suppressed anger.
Burdock is a biennial herb originally found in Europe and China that now grows in most temperate regions around the world. Burdock is rich in chromium, iron, magnesium, silicon, and vitamin B1. Medicinally, burdock root is widely used as a blood purifier to cleanse and eliminate toxins, including heavy metals. It relieves skin problems, sluggish digestion, and arthritis. The seeds are in round pods with burrs that stick to everything. This was the inspiration for Velcro.

Wild Gooseberry Flower Essence
Wild Gooseberry essence helps you stay open and engaged while facing fear. This could be a current situation or old fear that is locked into your body/being. Intensity can propel you forward; however, it’s common instead to contract around the intensity of fear. Wild Gooseberry Essence helps you stay open to what feels intense and experience that new growth, new life can arise from the compost of fear. It instills confidence to participate in new opportunities.
As Wild Gooseberry flower essence says of itself:
I AM transforming fear into engaging life!
Wild Gooseberry is a US Pacific NW native deciduous perennial shrub that grows 3-8 feet tall and has thorns at the leaf nodes. It grows best in moist to dry forest edges with partial shade. Maroon and white fuchsia-like flowers provide a valuable food source for hummingbirds. Gooseberries are edible for humans and wildlife.
