Today, Christians celebrate Good Friday. The day Christ was crucified. Which does not sound like a good any day. But that was the day our debt was paid, and on Sunday we celebrate the day the battle was won.
Today is a day of reflection and gratitude for my family. I wanted to create a blend that was meaningful and promoted that sense of meditation.
Good Friday Diffuser Blend
2 drops Blue Spruce (Tsuga canadensis)
Spikenard is the oil that Mary poured on Jesus’s feet. Frankincense is an incense that was used in the temple by the High Priest. And I used Black Spruce to signify the wood that He was nailed to (you could substitute with any wood like Cedarwood, Pine, Fir, etc).
It is a lovely blend. Something indescribable about it that does ground the mind and also reminds me of beautiful things. Perfectly appropriate for such a day.
Note: Spikenard is not always recommended for children, but a small dose in a diffuser for a short period of time (an hour or two) will be ok. Topical is more concerning for this oil.
