This is one of our Feng Shui Chinese Philosophy influenced 5 Element blends: According to the 5 natures, Earth corresponds to the in-between transitional seasonal periods, or a separate 'season' known as Late Summer or Long Summer – in the latter case associated with leveling and dampening (moderation) and fruition.
The Wu Xing Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work, and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together with itself, in order to bring harmony, rootedness and stability. Other attributes of the earth element include ambition, stubbornness, responsibility and long-term planning.
Dynamic, transformative and transportive--this blend for the earth element contains sandalwood, myrrh, cardamom and others.
Chinese philosophy encompasses Feng Shui, the Tao, Martial Arts, Tea Ceremony, The Chinese musical scale, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
