Oriental Medicine Concepts  - Wood Element

Meridian is the pathway of energy that flows in a cyclical manner throughout our body. Each meridian relates to an organ, and it is what acupuncturist uses to access and tries to bring us into balance.  A body map of meridians shows the most superficial and visible layer of energy flow but the physical body is only a finite stage of energetic evolution. Although treating a physical ailment is not the scope of Aromancy practice, it is important and useful to know the meridian system when your client has symptoms manifested in a particular part of the body.

Circadian Rhythms

Circadian Rhythms are the flow of vital energy through organs during the 24-hour cycle. This is a very useful tool during the consultation to determine which Element needs to be attended.

The circadian clock shows why it is virtuous to live a monk’s life. Early morning hours are Lung time, which is the best time to meditate. It also happens that during these hours trees “exhale” oxygen. Followed by Large Intestine time to eliminate. Empty of waste, it is Stomach time, then Spleen does the ripening of food.  The heart is in the change over time of AM to PM, which explains why we say “change of heart” Afternoon hours are for absorbing, adjusting fluid level, and distributing energy throughout the body. The gallbladder is on another change over time, and it is said that Gallbladder rules decision making. Liver rules creative energy. No wonder artists often stay up late into wee hours.

Essential oils are highly concentrated aromatic compounds of plant origin that are known to contain various degrees of chemical/medicinal properties. Aromancy is, however, not aromatherapy (French school style in particular) nor is a program to develop an aromatherapist. Essential oils are used only as “scents, or perfume” and used only at the safe level of dilution. Aromancy does not promote unsafe use of essential oils such as internal consumption.

The word “Medicine” or "Medicinal" in all articles of Aromancy publication has no association to “scientific” or “allopathic” medicine governed and practiced by qualified individuals. Aromancy does not claim to cure any medical condition, nor give any medical advice. Aromancy uses the word “medicine” or "medicinal" only in their original meaning, as the Art of Healing.
