Holiday Calm and Season’s Greetings

Snowmass Lake, Colorado.
'Tis the season...
"Holiday Calm" is the newest offering by Stars in Jars. This remedy is a combination of several essences intended to bring calm to any stressful situation and to help combat burnout. The perfect balm when feeling tired and wired. If you are in need of support, grounding and patience during this season, let “Holiday Calm” come to the rescue and add a little peace to your world. 

Did you know that flower essences can be a wonderful ally during the holiday season? It is a time when many of us tend to overextend ourselves; we may give too much, stretch ourselves too thin, work longer hours, fit in more social gatherings. While these may be things we choose to do willingly and lovingly, it can lead to overwhelm, irritability, and exhaustion. Flower essences can aid you in remaining calm, present, centered and balanced by working on a vibrational level to help soothe your emotions, give a clear perspective, and replenish your soul.

Available in 1 oz dropper ($13) or 2 oz spray ($17). The spray formula (for external use only) contains essence from Snowmass Lake. At 11,000 ft, it was one of the most serene places I've been. The essential oils are orange, jasmine, clary sage, coriander, helichrysum, palma rosa, vetiver and benzoin meant to clear mental and emotional fatigue. Spray the environment and create an oasis of relaxation. This week purchase internal and spray for a special of $25.

May you bask in the spirit of this wonderful time of the year~Happy Solstice to you and thank you all for your wonderful support. I invite you to connect to the spirit of this wonderful time and let go of the rest.

In light, Claudia

Shaman's Shield 

The featured essence this month is Shaman’s Shield: a protective energetic spray formula that fortifies the auric field and awakens the inner warrior. During the making of this essence an Eagle Warrior Spirit was our guide. Clear sight and discernment are paramount qualities of this remedy. The infusion includes various gems and essential oils for grounding and protection.

A buffer zone for empaths and sensitives, use this essence as an energetic shield when you need a little extra protection and courage. It is a helpful ally when needing to claim personal space in navigating through crowded urban areas (or desert festivals where all manner of vibrations and frequencies abound!).

Those interfacing with energy vampires or involved with populations or places where intense trauma or suffering has caused devastation can benefit from using Shaman’s Shield as part of their self-care ritual. Whether a layperson or light-worker, we invite you to put on your symbolic war paint and willingly confront life, knowing you are capable and protected with this strong companion by your side.

Claudia recommends a Stars in Jars spray trio for bodyworkers and healers. Stone Shields holds the container of sacred space. Shaman’s Shield aids in maintaining clear and healthy boundaries. Solstice Lightning Storm grounds and washes away any residual energy between sessions. A wonderful way to connect and be fully present in a loving and caring way with clients and then clear the slate, releasing any interpersonal connections.

Contains essential oils of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Sage and White Angelica.
Sprays are not to be taken internally.

"I don't always feel an effect from flower essences. But the wondrous women of Stars in Jars gave me a sample of Shaman's Shield, and I could totally feel my energy shift when I used it. Their stuff has some real woo to it! I love it."

Selene (Key Word~Transitions)

Selene Spray was birthed when some women in our lives needed a feminine guiding principle during times marked by major life transitions. As of late, there have been requests from our community desiring support around life passages: a “big birthday”, a pregnancy, a shift in job, relationship or living environment. We created Selene to celebrate and honor the Goddess in times of transition with love and gratitude.

Selene is the moon personified into a divine being and an aspect of the Triple Goddess. We invite you to include her in rites of passage. Selene can support the internal process that accompanies change and serve as an ally during transitions and transformation. This can include the passage into another stage of feminine grace and power, be it menarche, motherhood, or menopause. She will support you in redefining yourself when a chapter comes to an end and a new cycle begins to unfold. Selene reminds us that we all have access to the Goddess within us. May we embrace and celebrate all aspects of our divinity and honor each unique stage with gratitude.

Selene is available in 1 or 2oz spray that combines essential oils of: Rose Otto, Clary Sage, Geranium, and Vitex berry. These are considered some of the best women’s oils and useful for menopause as well.

May you delight in the energy of Summer Solstice~a wonderful time to celebrate life, with all its transitions, to the fullest!

Be in Heart (Keyword~Letting Go)

Be in Heart is the featured essence this month and was made on Spring Equinox from seven flowers from a bleeding heart plant. She had been planted in a shady patch of garden several years back and before Spring she popped her head up on a lower terrace. Within a week she had expanded into resplendent fullness. She had literally transplanted herself from a place of darkness to be able to more fully embrace the sunlight. Magic happens!

This essence, which asked to be called “Be in Heart”, is an invitation to allow the light to shine on the corners of ourselves that we keep in the realm of shadow. This process often requires a transition. It may be a letting go of limiting belief patterns, agendas, expectations, and the “shoulds”.  It may even require a physical move in order to fully express and allow our true essence to expand. The pathway to this transition is to connect with and be in your heart. When we live from a heart-centered place, we are in the flow of life.

Be in Heart is indicated for letting go of the need to feel small. It is a valuable ally for those who are ready to take on a leadership role and claim their place as they move out of the shadow of doubt into a place of radiance, seniority, brilliant openness and self-acceptance of their entire being.

We invite you to use the essence internally as well as play with anointing the seven chakras. Hold the intention to let go of anything that no longer serves so that you can manifest both light and lightness of being in each energy center. The spray is complimented with an absolutely delicious blend of aromatherapy oils that are intended to expand the heart center.

Available in 1oz dropper or 2 oz spray.
let it go - the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise - let it go it
was sworn to

let them go - the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers - you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go - the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things - let all go

so comes love
