Lymph Liberator Massage Oil
Violet (Viola odorata): The dainty purple and white blossoms of violet emerging from heart-shaped leaves is a true sign of the arrival of Spring in the Green Mountain State. An excellent lymphatic and demulcent herb, violet is helpful for congested lymph nodes and irritated skin. Pliny the Elder is said to have recommended it for inducing sleep, supporting the heart, and calming anger.
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense): A sweet native species that is also the State Flower of Vermont. Red Clover's botanical name, Trifolium pratense, refers to "Three leaf of the meadow", a nod to its naturalized habitat. As a legume species, Red Clover is a natural nitrogen-fixer and makes a useful addition to any cover crop mix. In TCM, Red Clover is typically reached for when there are signs of stagnation or need to gentle build Qi. In the Western traditions, we look to Red Clover for its mineral contents and clearing lymphatic actions. It is said that wherever Red Clover is planted it will attract plant fairies.
Calendula (Calendula officinalis): These sunny, resinous blossoms are widely known for the skin-soothing properties that are helpful for all skin types (and ages!). With inflammation reducing, vulnerary, and antimicrobial effects, calendula is lovely for any skin irritation, wounds, and stagnated lymph. The flower essence is indicated for promoting empathetic communication and the free flow of artistic expression.
Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris): Named for the Full Moon Goddess, Artemis, Mugwort is a very mystical plant with potent energy. Some seek it for it's support in navigating the dreamscape and for it's protective qualities against negativity. It is traditionally used in moxa preparations, herbal smudges, and as a strewing herb to cleanse stagnated air due to its potent terpene profile. Mugwort is also very moving to the lymph and circulatory system, and can be helpful in reigniting stagnated digestion or menstruation, poor circulation, and feelings of stuckness.
Yarrow (Achmillea millefolium): For all of those bumps, cuts, and scrapes earned in the garden, yarrow is usually nearby to help. A well-naturalized herbaceous perennial in the Northeast, yarrow can typically be found in meadows, along roadways, and probably around the edges of your garden beds. The fresh leaves can be chewed into a poultice to staunch bleeding, and it is traditionally found in fever-reducing tea blends. A very ancient plant with a storied history, yarrow is certianly one to get to know and fall in love with.
