Patchouli Oil for the Clearing and Activation of the Gall Bladder Meridian
The Gall Bladder meridian, which associates with the eyes, requires clarity of vision in order to decide on a course of action. When balanced, all possibilities can be seen and considered. Out of balance, we may become identified with one position and inflexible on it. Or we may find it difficult to see any choices at all. Indecision, frustration, or feeling defeated and impotent may result. Patchouli helps to clear the emotional stagnation in the meridian, and restore balance and our capacity for wise judgement.
Benefits of the Alchemical Patchouli:
- Helps to ground as a counterforce to the over-emphasis in the mind.
- Helps to silence the mind, which clears density in the body, reduces stress, and closes the gap of cause and effect, enabling greater harmony in life.
- Balances our expression (so we are not overpolarized in masculine thinking)
- Promotes deeper states of meditation and expansiveness
- Helps to balance and clear the Gall Bladder meridian, and activate it to its higher function
Gall Bladder Clearing has many effects:
- Greater clarity and potency in our actions
- Allows for spontaneous newness to express…innocent unselfconscious living
- Lightens mood, enables humor to be felt rather than frustration
- Clears the dense, stagnant stuff that keeps us in old repetitive cycles of mediocrity
- General meridian clearing optimizes sleep, so that we are in creative states rather than tied up processing unresolved emotions. Time where the body’s energies focus on this meridian is 11pm-1am.
To clear the meridian of stagnant emotions, the treatment points are GB-20 and 21. See below for how to apply the oil with acupressure.
Another good point is GV-24 (alarm point), called “Sun and Moon”, which helps to see with clarity. It also supports the gall bladder organ. If the area is tender when applying pressure, then it may indicate imbalance in the organ. If you also experience discomfort during the hours of 11-1 am, then the likelihood of imbalance is increased. Taking time to still the mind, reduce stress, meditate and be in nature daily is recommended. Apply the FA oil and acupressure to the point (see below), to support clarity in thinking so that options in life can be seen. (See disclaimer).

General Application of FA Oils on Acupuncture Points
Rub the oil into the points, bilaterally, using a circular motion for about 15 secs, then press and hold for another 15 secs. Repeat this about 3 times. Take deep breaths while holding. Then lightly hold points for another 15 secs or so. You may feel a pulsation, which indicates the energy is moving into the meridian at that location. It’s good to combine the acupressure with an affirmation stating intent.
