International School of Healing Arts under the guidance of Seymour Koblin has created 5 /Season/Movement/Element essential oil blends. We call them
iSOHA 5 element essential oils.
Ancient health systems including Ayurveda assert that the sound of the breath is represented by the syllables:: SO (inhale) and HA (exhale). Listen to your breath. Do you hear the similarity between these syllables with your inhale and exhale?
i S chool O f H ealing A rts incorporates the life-essential nutrient of the breath into our name and slogan “inspiring”/’ (inhaling ) the path of health” and into our aromatherapy classes, products, and services
The 5 Movements represent the life essential dynamics of the 5 seasons that are uniquely embodied by each of us.
INTEGRATING OUR LIVES WITH NATURE MEANS THAT WE ESTABLISH OUR UNIQUE RHYTHM OF ADAPTABILITY WITHIN THE CYCLICAL MOVEMENTS OF THE 5 SEASONS AND TIMES OF DAY.
For example, the flowing, hibernation quality of winter (seasonal-12 month cycle) and sleep ( daily 24 hr. cycle) is essential for us to maintain health in our waking life. A distortion of this flowing, water- like movement starts with or leads to sleep challenges and the ability to flow with the challenges of daily living.
Instead of being adaptable, a person who is craving harmony within this movement will seem detached and back/flow away from conflict. Reproductive, urinary, kidney, blood and bone dis-ease are also common.
Included is Seymour’s guide to SOHA Essential oils. which explains how to assess which blends are best for you and how to use them effectively. The handbook explains both intuitive and Traditional Chinese medicine theoretical methods for health assessment and essential oil applications. Each person’s Constitution and Condition as well as 5 elements behavioral type is considered when deciding when and how to use the soha-5-element-oil-blends.
