A warm infusion of dandelion flowers from my land, picked in full sunshine so that the flowers are at their best, creating a sunshine oil which makes a wonderful massage oil. This year’s batch of Dandelion Oil is ready and a beautiful infusion it is too. This is the second batch following our move to England and a lowland location with a wonderful rich crop of Dandelions, which after 2 full seasons we can vouch for there being no chemical fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides sprayed on our land or drifting from elsewhere.
Dandelion has pain-relieving properties and is great for releasing tension held in the muscles. Valuable for its diuretic properties – one of Dandelion’s common names is “Piss-in-Bed” which describes its properties unmistakably. Dandelion has a special affinity for breasts. Regular use of dandelion flower oil promotes deep relaxation of the breast tissues, facilitating the release of held emotions. This oil is a superb support to regular breast self-massage, and highly praised by those doing therapeutic breast massage. Native Americans also boiled dandelion in water and took it to treat kidney disease, swelling, skin problems, heartburn, and upset stomach. In traditional Chinese medicine, dandelion has been used to treat stomach problems, appendicitis, and breast problems, such as inflammation or lack of milk flow. In Europe, it was used in remedies for fever, boils, eye problems, diabetes, and diarrhoea.
Use it as a base oil for sore muscle ointments or for creams to treat skin irritations & inflammation. It can be added to massage oils and used in bodywork.
Applied regularly to the entire breast area, including the solar plexus, glowing golden dandelion flower oil can strengthen your immune system. Dandelion Blossom Oil can be used for general all-over massage, as well as to relieve tension. Use the infused oil, as a soothing base for homemade body balm.
Dandelion is vital for people who cram far too much into their lives, leaving little room for relaxation, spiritual or emotional expression or reflection, until the point is reached where they no longer know how to be quiet or relaxed. Such harsh physical demands and unexpressed inner life creates great tension, especially in the muscles of the neck and shoulders. Dandelion helps to release this tension, allowing the body to relax and emotions to be released and expressed.
