What’s Up With Our All About Love Kit?
You can’t buy love, but you can buy our All About Love Kit… and if that’s not enough to draw in a new beau, it’ll fit sure get you off to the right start! And if you’re already in a relationship, but things aren’t quite working out, you might want to check this out before you cut that off! Sometimes all you need is a little more love , and we’ve got that in spades – or bottles rather as it so happens to be!
That’s because, in any relationship, especially a romantic one and/or close partnerships, the compatibility of values that each partner holds sacred can determine the overall happiness, success, and longevity of that pairing. According to the Vedas, ancient yogic philosophy, there are at least seven categories of relationships – based on the seven chakras – that can achieve a different types of harmony and compatibility in a partnership. And while our Chakra Line can be used by both partners to balance and align their chakras, promoting greater overall balance and harmony, our All About Love Kit was designed to harmonize the whole of the relationship, with the main focus being on the Heart Chakra.
Our Anahata™: Heart Chakra Essence, featured in this Kit, hails from the Chakra Line and has a special focus on balancing and opening the heart center, bringing it into alignment within your overall chakra center. It may be especially beneficial for easing trust issues and promoting healing from past heartache, as well as promoting energies of unconditional love, joy and harmony.
Our Attract™ Essence is one of our all time bestsellers for a reason! Used as part of this Kit, it works to harmonize the heart and lower chakras, helping you draw in energies of love, abundance and partnership. And… Did you know? The energy field of the heart chakra is at least 20,0000 times stronger than the mind …so getting your vibrations aligned when you want to attract something to you, is always a great place to start!
Our Harmony™ Master Blend can be used to promote internal harmony – balancing the triage of mind-body-spirit, but it can also be used to promote overall relationship harmony. Used in our All About Love Kit, it can help bring your existing relationship into greater balance, as well as support you in drawing in a new, more harmonious one.
Goddess Power™ also acts on all 7 chakras; in particular it helps activate the seed vibrations in each chakra; It is infused with flowers and gemstones that relate to the indwelling goddess in each of the main energy centers. The goddess energy, or divine feminine, is after all archetypically central to any male:female relationship.
Jasmine: Love™ increases frequencies of unconditional love. Made from seed vibrations found in nature, it works to clear the heart chakra of negativity, opening you up to a greater experience of altruistic unconditional love.
And last but certainly not least, comes our Venus™ Master Blend our bestselling Essence for all things Love and Romance. Used within our All About Love Kit, it works to invoke the Venetian qualities of passion, creativity, beauty and grace.

Get ready to say goodbye to all that no longer serves you, and step into new intentions, goals, hopes and dreams. Release It™, our powerful blend for releasing energetic blocks, is loaded with key flowers, orchids and gemstones for letting things go and moving stuck energy out. Put it to work for you as a tool for going deep and releasing blockages on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels – often stored as resistance on subconscious and unconscious levels. If you feel stuck, and/or like you’re dealing with the same issues, same emotions and same challenges, over and over again, then this might be the perfect essence to help propel you forward. Release It is one of our most powerful essences and it pairs well with so many other essences to help enhance the results.
Recommendations For How to Use Release It™
When using Release It™, it helps when you tune in and think about what you’d like to release before spraying. Take a few deep breaths and focus on what you’d like to achieve. If you are working with a certain area of the body where you feel pain or tension, then tune into that area and use a few sprays over that area of the body. If you want to release emotional baggage, then sense where you might carry that emotion in your body and spray those areas. If there’s no area of the body associated with your intention, or you aren’t sure what’s blocking you, then you can spray your forehead, temples, base of skull, heart and/or feet. Imagine the essence releasing and clearing away whatever it is you intend.
When working with multiple essences, its best to wait 15-60 minutes after using Release It™ before using the next essence. You can also use Release It™ at night and the complimentary essence in the morning.
We also recommend journaling your experience with the essence(s). Small shifts over time may not be that noticeable, but when you look back at where you were when you first started using an essence, you may be surprised at just how far you’ve come!
For Releasing Emotional Baggage
For releasing emotional “baggage” or weight, we recommend using Release It™ and Frequencies of White Light™. This is because whenever you take something out, you want to put something back in. Frequencies of White Light™ contains the purest vibration – where there is White Light, there can be nothing else.*
Use whenever negative thoughts or feelings come up with the intention of releasing them and letting them go. If the feelings can be linked to a specific body part (e.g. butterflies in your stomach, a “broken” heart, weak knees, headache, etc.), then spray over the affected areas. Otherwise, it may be helpful to spray the base of the skull, forehead, temples, heart center and feet. We recommend using Frequencies of White Light™ 15-60 minutes after using Release It™, or using Release It™ before bed and Frequencies of White Light™ in the morning. Frequencies of White Light™ should be sprayed in exactly the same locations that the Release It™ was used.
For Manifesting Goals
Use Release It™ and Attract™ are our Companion Essences for releasing old patterns and unwanted energies, attracting new energies and attaining new goals. Often times, you may set goals or intentions, but for some reason find yourself unable to bring them to fruition. You want to attract certain things – a better job, a new home or relationship, better income, etc. You may do all these positive things to attract new energy, and still somehow remain stuck….sometimes that’s because there’s an underlying blockage preventing the new energy from coming in. Release It™ and Attract™ Essences, when used in tandem, allow for a powerful, conscious means of working with the energy of almost any situation or issues, so you can move toward the physical manifestation of your goals. Release It™ gets underneath and pulls out the blockages, and Attract™ helps to draw in the new desired energy.
Use Release It™ and Attract™ daily, with the intention of clearing out whatever is in your way of achieving what you want to achieve. It may be ideal to use Release It™ at night over any areas of tension or tightness, and throughout the aura. Use Attract™ in the morning, and before activities that involve the energy you are wishing to draw in (such as before a date or interview). It may be beneficial to spray Attract™ over the heart and three lower chakras (front and back), and throughout the aura. Alternate throughout the day as needed (within 15 minutes or more) spraying first Release It™, and following with Attract™. It may be helpful to take deep, expansive breaths after spraying each essence, and to reaffirm that your goal is coming to you, or to say a prayer that whatever is in line with your highest good will be manifested.
For Inviting In the New
Release It™ and Frequencies of White Light™ Companion Essences can also be used to release the old and invite in the new. Use these two together to release and re-pattern deep seated energy blocks so that you can move forward with brand new intentions. Using Release It™ first, spray any areas of tension, or you can spray the standard suggested areas for this blend, which are listed on the bottle. If you like, you can make an intention to release whatever is blocking you from experiencing positive change. After a few moments, spray Frequencies of White Light™ over the same areas that you used Release It™ on. If you have some time, take a few moments to sit still and experience the subtle (and maybe not so subtle) responses your body has to the Essences. You may experience:
- Feelings of getting lighter, or a floating sensation
- Feelings of heaviness or tingling
- The desire to fidget or adjust your posture
- Feelings of tension releasing
- Increased mental clarity or renewed perspective
You may even envision or experience pure, positive energy entering into your being in the form of White Light, carrying pure potentiality.
A great way to continue using these Essences would be to use Release It™ at night before bed and Frequencies of White Light™ first thing in the morning. You may also want to incorporate our Attract™ or Prosperity™ Essences throughout the day or as needed or desired.
Big Shifts in January Are Finally Here
Until April 22 2023, Jupiter is hemmed in between two malefics – Saturn in Aquarius (per the Vedic system), and Rahu in Aries, creating a formation known as Paap Kartari Yoga. Paap Kartari Yoga tends to hinder a planet – so that that planet cannot do what it wants – express itself to its fullest. To do something to its fullest, you need well integrated lessons from the past, a positive mindset, and a vision for the future. What happens when Jupiter is hemmed in here, is that Jupiter, planet of luck, hope and inspiration has Saturn – planet of discipline and restriction, in the 12th house from it, and Rahu – the shadow planet of desire and illusion in the 2nd house. The 12th house represents the past – losses and lessons, and the second house represents gains. Thus the combined effect on Jupiter can be a sense of loss, regret, and distress over what has already taken place – a feeling of discontent that you have not gotten what you want, while at the same time, an illusory expectation of the future – perhaps even a bloated sense of hope or unrealistic vision. It can create a scenario where you want more than you actually need – whilst at the same time prolonging a sense of regret and discontent about where you have been. In short, it brings a situation which can affect your mind, creating unrealistic expectations moving forward.
If you practice yoga on a mental level – the level of the mind, then you know that there is one cause for all disappointment in life – expectation. While the popular law of attraction teaches goals and vision, there is a fine line between the positive benefits of having such, and the entanglement of desire, expectation, and disappointment. This is because, ultimately, no matter how much you might want to be, you are ultimately not in complete control of your destiny. There are certain aspects that simply are beyond – up to a higher power, predestined, fated… however you might think of it. On the other hand, there is a danger in thinking too much this way too, for there is much that you can control and change – and so much that you can improve. The issue with desire is that it leads to expectation, which inevitably leads to disappointment… for no matter what you may achieve, gain or enjoy, it will never truly be enough. Eventually that desire, even when satiated, no longer satisfies you, and that leads to the quest for something more – it is an endless uphill craving that breeds discontent no matter how much you have. If you think of the course of your life, you can most likely track this tendency.
This particular yoga that is currently forming, Paap Kartari, also warrants a caution; while it is indeed important to be optimistic, and fortunately Jupiter is getting ready to move into Aries – a sign it favors (which can only help), it is also important to check your mind. It is the mind that has the power to make you happy or unhappy with your current lot. Should you find yourself in a negative spiral, discontented with what you have, or downtrodden about what you don’t have, it may simply be that your mind needs a shift. Fortunately, your intellect has the power to check your mind, to bring you into a place of mental reason, of rational thought, so that you can overpower any such negative emotion and feelings that may be surfacing.
Essences for January and Beyond
We are thus recommending Prosperity™ and Removing Obstacles™ from our Cosmic Frequencies Line, to work with the energies of this shift. When you feel emotional heaviness, or when you’re facing challenges, or just plain stressful situations, you might find it’s easier to spiral inward, focusing on the mess, than it is to look up and focus on the bright light up ahead. Then again, as you try to imagine the bright light ahead, under the current aspects, you don’t want to imagine that it’s too bright, such as to set yourself up for disappointment. Only when you truly accept things as they are, can the future pleasantly surprise you. Ever notice how the moment you finally stopped worrying about something (or someone) or let something go, that that is when it actually started working out, or that a situation finally came around. Removing Obstacles™ offers a great, in the moment resource for moving through challenges and inner blocks, helping you to clear at the source of the problem or condition, while Prosperity™ can help you tap into the more expansive energies at hand, whilst still being in – and accepting of – the moment.
Here’s a little insight too – used in the morning, Removing Obstacles™ can help quell anger and negative emotion, while Prosperity™, especially when used before sitting in the sun – if only for a few minutes, and, especially morning sun, can help recharge and strengthen energies of the intellect, bringing a necessary check to any illusions (or sense of delusion) the mind might have.
Also of note, is that Venus moreover moved into Aquarius on January 22nd where it is joining Saturn. Venus is the planet of beauty and romance while Saturn as mentioned above, represents discipline, but also maturity. Venus with Saturn in Aquarius, requires you to work hard, to stop procrastinating, but also, to know your limitations – saying no when you know you are truly beyond capacity. It also requires that you love what you are doing, lest it can create distortions in your perspective, leading to problems with health, relationships, creative passions and well being. When these energies are appropriately harmonized, Venus here has a way of calming down the restrictive energies of Saturn while Saturn helps Venus stay practical and grounded, That is why this transit, if worked with appropriately, can bring positive, creative vision for the future – helping you pave a path forward – and, unlike Jupiter in Paap Kartari yoga, an achievable vision for the future. We are thus recommending that you also work with our Venus™ Master Blend during this time. Venus Master brings a sense of lightness and harmony, while involving creativity, helping you find the beauty in things as they are, so that you can tap into that energy on an even deeper level, and use it to propel you forward.
And, not to make it even more complex, but with the Moon having just joined Saturn in Aquarius on the 22nd, you may especially find yourself thinking back to the past – and thus, this mental check, and the need to reinforce your mind and reason with the strength of the intellect is even more important than ever. We are thus also recommending our Ma-Hina™, Healer Within™ and Release It™ Essences for helping you self nurture and heal, as well as process anything lingering from the past.
Finally, we also have Mercury in its shadow phase – check out our latest blog here – and Mars having just reversed its retrograde as well. For this, we are recommending our MercurEase™ and Mars™ Essences, for balancing the planetary energies accordingly. Mars is a planet of passion and war- when benefic it helps you fight, defends you, and strengthens you. But when malefic, it can wreak havoc, bringing energies of conflict, illness, and frustration. And… having just turned forward in the Venus ruled sign of Taurus, Mars has been creating financial distress among so many, as well as, depending on how it is positioned in your chart, bringing a sense of going backward in life – or perhaps, causing you to revisit old wounds, things that are hidden, to experience problems with health, and/or conflict in your relationships. Our Mars™ Master Blend is formulated to act as a sort of tonic towards these types of energies, invoking the flame of passion when it has burned out, whilst calming the fire when it’s raging. It can also help you find the necessary patience to get through the next two months, as Mars regains its momentum and finally moves out of Taurus – and into Gemini.
