A Story about Rhododendron

 Once I had a client, a good looking man, who lived a life of a traveler. He made a decent living, and along the way had short and sweet affairs. He always left the place and the woman before they got heavy. Then one day he felt enough is enough, and wanted to go home, meet the woman who he can bring to his mother to meet. But the life he led is, however tiring, addictive. I asked him to look into oils in Fire Element. Not to know his own heart, but find a scent of woman of his life. So he went about methodically - Some were for sure attractive, but too beautiful, and some were too sweet, and he felt she will be too needy. After all, he did not find the one he could trust. So I suggested to go beyond the Fire Element, and when he came upon Rhododendron, he looked up and said, “this is she - she is not so beautiful, but trustworthy, and I feel at home with her” 

Rhododendron is considered as a sacred medicinal plant in Tibetan culture. It is used for fourth chakra issues, (relating to Lung and Heart element) to heal emotional pain of broken life line and to create reconciliation. 

Today he is back home, and found his Rhododendron and married her.
