12 Days of Selfcare ~ Day 4

Day 4 – Personal Rejuvenation Oil

Some of the best magic I have ever encountered is olfactory magic. Our sense of smell is a way to time travel, to call upon someone, and to remember.

Today we are going to create a personal rejuvenation oil to uplift our sense of wellness and calm. I highly recommend creating an oil that speaks to you and brings you to a place of calm awareness. Before you begin, take a moment with each oil you plan on using. Maybe hold it to your heart so it can feel into what you need. Focus on allowing it to help you reach your desired state.

Here is a sample recipe:

In a small jar (make sure it has a lid), pour 4 TBSP of olive oil.

Add in (while holding your intention for each oil):

  • 10 drops of Lavender
  • 8 drops of Bergamot
  • 3 drops of Patchouli

To activate the calm and revitalizing properties, place lid on the jar and swirl the jar clockwise.

Place a drop on wrists and at the heart center. This creates a triangle of intention, whatever you are doing today will be connected to a rejuvenated sense of creativity and heart awareness.

Before bed, use your journal to describe how this impacted your day.

Preparing for Day 5

Each day there will be another (smaller) article detailing the current day and the next day, so if you are a planner like I am, you will have time to make the space.

Day 5 – Tattoo Touch Points

Creating personal sigils for increasing a certain energy in my auric field is a fabulous take on magic. It is even more fun when you craft more than one to use in conjunction with the others.

Today, light or turn your candle on. Close your eyes and breathe.

Breathe in through your nose for 5 seconds, hold it at the top for 2 seconds, and exhale for 7 seconds. Repeat 5 times.

Now think deeply about what energies you wish to increase. Let them come up for you, it may take a minute but they will come.

  • Do you need positive energy?
  • Do you need comfort?
  • Do you need to connect with others meaningfully?
  • Do you need to release or repel energy that you notice doesn’t belong to you?

Open your eyes. Pick one or two that come forward clearly and channel the energy into a sigil on the inside of each wrist.

Imagine that it is creating a force field of energy surrounding you with exactly what you need. If during the day you feel you need an extra boost, just touch each one to activate the intensity.

Before bed, use your journal to describe how this impacted your day. Could you tell a difference in the way you were able to connect to certain energies?

Building it Up

This is a free series from Dark Goddesses Collective and is a part of our December 2021 work. We believe that it is important to empower each other, this includes providing free information that provokes or encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition. Over the course of 12 days we will be building up a practice of selfcare that invites in the deeper knowledge of self and building up awareness of the importance of Full-hearted selfcare in our practices of magic.

We are building a network of Sovereigns too! Stay tuned!
