These Sphagnis are a wonderful way to support children transitioning, moving homes, beginning school, travelling or simply adding to your usual morning & evening rhythm for a lovely extra comfort.
Sphagnis are peat moss and plant oil emulsions used externally as a moisturiser and commonly used in Waldorf Education to envelop the child in a protective cocoon, helping withstand and protect against outside influences.
Rudolf Steiner spoke of a time when we would need extra protection from external stimuli and influences and suggested that this protection could be provided by Sphagnum or Peat Moss. In nature, Peat Moss filters what is in the air and environment above the Moss beds to produce and protect crystal clear, vital and energised water below.
Wearing a Sphagni provides a boundary and feels like you are covered in a special membrane filtering external circumstances, stimuli and experiences.
Lotion can be applied after bathing, a foot bath, before bed or before going out for the day. The gesture is to envelop the body with rhythm in harmony with the body’s rhythms.
For children, wearing Sphagni Rose can feel like being surrounded by a mother's cuddle which they can take with them as they go about their day.
It allows the heart to remain open while offering a protective shield to the wearer.
So often when overwhelmed or in uncomfortable and unfamiliar surroundings we close our hearts, withdraw and hunch our shoulders forward in a protective gesture. This restricts our breathing, rhythmic and circulatory systems, contributing to tension and constriction in the body.
Rose is the traditional heart remedy, used to help remain open, stand tall, take part in and offer valuable contributions to our environment and the situations we find ourselves.
