Mercury Retrograde Spray in a one ounce size.
What is Mercury Retrograde?
A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac.
Retrograde planets present us with a series of events where things do not proceed or function as usual. It can be a very enlightening time as we challenge ourselves to look at life from an upturned perspective.
More often though, it can be a frustrating few weeks of miscommunications, deals that don't stick, mechanical difficulties, lost information (and luggage) and the need to do things twice or even thrice.
It can be a time to "go back" in our own lives and redo things that were never quite right to begin with. Or to rewrite or edit a book. Or to clear up a misunderstanding from the past.
Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, as a rule, but the effects of each period differ, according to the sign in which it happens.
Can an essential oil spray really help with Mercury Retrograde?
That's what we are hearing. The Mercury Retrograde Spray is a tool to enhance the powerful positive mental energies and transform or neutralize the negative energetic effects of Mercury Retrograde.
An essential oil is the lifeblood of the plant and it contains the energetic code of that plant and its contribution to life as a whole.
The spray is a blend of four organic essential oils. Each of the four oils has properties that address the challenges of Mercury when it is retrograde in each of the twelve signs.
Spraying the space around you, your aura, is a simple way to help create an aware and stable environment before, during and after a Mercury Retrograde. Awareness reduces the frustrations and aggravations typically associated with a retrograde period.
Getting a head start keeps you centered throughout the three weeks of the retrograde and the following two weeks of Mercury retroshade. Similarly, recognizing the potential of the retrograde helps us to take advantage of the aspect and accomplish more.
How Mercury Retrograde affects us?
Although Mercury Retrograde influences everyone differently, it tends to affect all levels of communications and often leads to various kinds of delays and misunderstandings. Practical communications and interactions with, for example, mail, technology in general, publishing and business contracts can become bogged down in conflict.
For most of us, it’s not wise to make important decisions during this time. More broadly, the retrograde can create challenges with all of the ways that we relate to the outside world; cars, computers, travel, basically everything, will often be functioning funny. Everything can feel very wobbly, unbalanced and confusing.
However, Mercury Retrograde provides a time for self-reflection and inner growth. Spending time with the quiet part of the self gives us the inner awareness and power to go out into the world and operate more effectively. Mercury Retrograde encourages us to spend time on activities such as: cleaning out closets and drawers; art in any form; organizing photos (and organizing of any kind); meditation; personal readings; etc.
What’s In the Formula?
Organic, cold-pressed, essential oils of peppermint (mental clarity), basil (aligns energy when in reverse motion), clary sage (releases stuck trauma) and orange (replenishes and uplifts), Vichy Catalan mineral water, organic Japanese sake (rice wine) and an ethically-sourced tumbled Peridot (high vibration of Mercury) pebble.
We made our spray with sake because it carries an archetypal association of a bridge from the divine to humanity.
The Ruby and Blue hues of the glass bottle harmonize the 1st, 5th and 7th chakras (base, throat and crown). This brings ideas and thoughts (crown) into reality (base) through communication (throat).
