“But unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint of clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living.”
Each essential oil has its own energetic signature. Rosemary is for both remembrance and creativity. The above quote by Madeleine L’Engle illustrates the creativity aspect of rosemary.
We are all born creative although some people think only of artists, writers, singers, sculptors and film makers as creative but everyone is creative. Each and every moment you are creating your life and you show your creativity in a multitude of ways. The meals you prepare, the way you raise your children, the career you have and the energy you put into it, the clothes you wear, the furniture you choose for your house or apartment, the garden you plant and the way you communicate with others.
Some people think or say they are not creative but they show their creativity in many other ways in addition to the above. It may be in the way you blend your oils, arrange flowers, soothe an angry person or help someone see the way to heal themselves. People may comment on your creativity or ability in a certain area but you may not see it because it seems so natural to you.
The other aspect of rosemary is remembering not only those who have died or otherwise left you, events from the past or facts but also your true self which may have gotten lost in your day to day living.
Rosemary can help you remember your creativity, who you really are and your purpose. So I would like to add to Madeline’s quote “Rosemary helps us to remember who we truly are and reminds us that creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living.”
You can use rosemary in a diffuser, an inhaler or as part of a massage or anointing blend.
