RESONANCE: physical, emotional

APPLICATION: Carna, diluted, may be applied on the chest over the heart area several times a day. Verve can also be applied to the acupressure heart area on the left foot, or alternatively, to the heart points found under the left ring finger and corresponding toe on the left foot.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Carna can be worn as a perfume or diffused.

EMOTIONAL – SPIRITUAL – MENTAL ASPECTS: Carna creates enthusiasm for life and confidence that one’s body is capable of healing and adequate to the tasks being required of it. This blend seems to stabilize and open the emotional and electrical rhythms of the heart and has a dramatic impact on the pericardium, both physically and emotionally. The pericardium is the protective case around the physical heart and the protective watchman of the emotional heart. Openness here allows us to give and receive love and perceive other people’s intentions accurately and without judgement.

An open and well-functioning pericardium is the basis for great and effective leadership. This is an effective oil for those stressful days when one has no choice but to multi-task and do so efficiently and well. One description of this blend by a frequent user described it as helping to “create a self-disciplined, decided heart.” This is a perfect description of the emotional impact of Carna. She also mentioned that Carna gives one “sufficient hope to venture out and go forth and live, while creating a safe atmosphere in which to work.” Carna contains additional emotionally balancing oils which are not present in Verve, but it is slightly less effective for the physical repair of heart valves.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Carna is very strong in the balancing and repairing of the cardiovascular, circulatory, pulmonary, and lymphatic systems. This blend can be used in conjunction with, or in lieu of, Verve for heart related and circulatory conditions. The choice should be made according to the emotional patterns, stresses, and needs of the individual. Carna has proven useful for lowering high blood pressure, reducing stress levels, and increasing stamina and energy levels.

GENERAL INFORMATION: Carna came about originally as a serendipitous mistake made in the blending of Verve. It still contains many of the same essential oil singles as Verve, but some oils specifically targeting emotions that are linked to heart dysfunction have been added to the blend.
