Associated with the lungs, breathing, air organization, and spiritual nourishment, frankincense is imbued with the intelligence to slow and deepen the breath. The lungs are the organs that interface the internal milieu with the outside world and are the route by which the astral and spirit bodies incarnate into the physical body, connecting one with the earth. We are connected with the environment through breathing.
With reference to frankincense Dr. Bruce Berkowsky, Founder of Spiritual PhytoEssencing writes “Its value derives as much from a calming and purifying of both the emotional and spiritual planes as upon a direct action upon the skin. A calm and pure spirit will be mirrored in a relaxed and clear countenance. It is said, after having spent 40 days and nights in the presence of God, Moses’ face glowed with light.”

Lemongrass, known as the “primordial” gold remedy, resides in the transition point between yellow and gold and is a hybrid of both color forces. The gold character of lemongrass is more youthful and partially elaborated, and its golden “genes” are sufficiently expressed to strongly influence the soul nature of the oil. Yellow, warm and uplifting, is the color of the sun and the premier color in the spectrum regarding lightness and luminosity. Lemongrass’ tonic-stimulant effect derives from its strong affinity with yellow.
Lemongrass oil has a regulating action upon the fluid organism and is a specific for many aspects of immunological action. It is a lymphatic stimulant and can support lymphatic flow via tonification of lymphatic vessels and the stimulation of white blood cell movement and the aspiration of congesting extracellular fluids. Lemongrass activates all aspects of lymphatic immune function within the lymphatic vessels as well in the mucosal membranes which line many of the organs including those of the respiratory and digestive tracts, and supports the drainage of harmful toxins, primarily via the lymphatic system and spleen.
LIFE GATE FIRE
Zingiber, the Latin name for ginger is derived from the Sanskrit singabera which means “shaped like a horn.”
Ginger acts as a direct invigorator of the body nurturing it back to vitality. It clears microcirculatory channels and supports nutrient breakdown and assimilation of nutrients to body tissues. Says Dr. Bruce Berkwosky, ”…According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ginger strengthens Kidney Yang, or Life Gate Fire, through which the kidneys rule Water. Accordingly, this fire evaporates water, a step required for its ascension and circulation. The kidneys are pivotal to the entire process of water movement and transformation. Ginger tonifies astral mobilazation in the kidneys which improves the vaporizing action of the Life Gate Fire: the kidneys’ “pilot light,” one of the pathways that ginger uses to help take control of dampness.”
