Beccah Posted April 28, 2014 Share Posted April 28, 2014 Totem: Elephant Elephants are immediately perceived as incredibly powerful animals, majestic in our sight. But their value is inherently rich in symbolic meaning, especially within Hindu mythology, the god Ganesha being the cheerful eradicator of obstacles. Ever mindful of their existence and exhibiting highly intelligent (and even ritualistic) behaviors, there is much inspiration for us to take from the soul of Elephant. A blend of floral and herbal aspects – storax, katrifay, zinnia, tea rose, clover and labdanum - with bright berry notes of huckleberry and elderberry, and fresh light accents of Tibetan white tea and pink grapefruit. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: CLOVER ~ (for Horton) ~ Protection, preservation of youth, fidelity.
