Have you ever held onto something that no longer serves you? In order to invite positive energy into your life and create change, we believe you must make space for it—which usually means letting go of something else. Whether it’s a toxic relationship, toxic self-talk, a toxic habit—or just, you know, toxins—we’ve all got something we could shed. And if you need a little assistance, Tangiers, our delightfully uplifting, decidedly spring-y body balm, is here to help.
Lemongrass, Tangier’s central ingredient, is considered one of the greatest lymphatic stimulants—it’s right up there with Frankincense. In fact, it is so powerful that it’s important to use it with restraint (i.e. we don’t recommend using it on your face). With powerful regulatory action on the fluid organism, lemongrass supports the drainage of harmful toxins, primarily via the lymphatic system and spleen, and supports healthy immune function. (Hello flu season that just won’t quit.) It’s a tonic to the nervous and circulatory systems, muscles, and heart, and supports liver, gall bladder, and pancreatic function. On a more obvious level, lemongrass aids in combatting water retention and exerts healing and cleansing action upon the skin.
Mentally, lemongrass is said to help improve clarity and concentration, which is always welcome when you’re working towards something new and promising. Its aroma arouses optimism and cheerfulness, and aids in dealing with anxiety or doubt while promoting open-mindedness, inner power, and self-esteem. Associated with the color yellow, a symbol of mind and intellect, lemongrass is a gold remedy and acts as a reflection of the internal sun, bringing light into the body. And although there is an airy gentleness to gold remedies, themes of personal power and leadership weave their way through Tangiers like gold threads—illuminating, supporting, harmonizing, and protecting—generally helping you to welcome all that is good.
