Orange Oleander Essence

“I am the spice of life.”

Latin Name: Thevetia peruviana

Link to Chakra: Sacral Chakra

Origin: This South American native has orange trumpet-shaped flowers and smells like pepper.  The seeds and fruit are highly poisonous.

Traditional herbal uses:  The bark and stem are used to reduce fever.

Energetic properties:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Heighten sensual pleasure
  • Listless state, i.e., no “get up and go”

This peppery smelling, orange coloured sister of Yellow Oleander, reminds me of a miniature willow tree with flowers.  While the smell of this essence didn’t make me hungry, it did prompt me to pick up some of the sweet pepper-shaped fruit for the seeds.  One day I’ll have a garden again, and this lovely tree, along with her yellow sister, will certainly be in it…
