Essential Oils


Ginger oil is distilled from the root of the Rhizome plant, which is native to Asia. Ginger is famously known for its distinct spicy scent. It has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine, particularly in the treatment of digestion issues and the common cold. Ginger has been used to stimulate spiritual awakening, to expand conscious awareness and for empowerment.

-Dr. Morgana McCabe Allan

From Morgana

Ginger is another spice with an ancient, global history. And one that’s been part of my whole life. I was always attracted by gingery foods as a child, but it was only later, when I started working intentionally with herbs and essential oils and I learned of its many uses in curbing nausea, malaise, easing tension, alleviating nervous exhaustion, settling nervous tummies, and helping people overcome feelings of impotency (not just male physical impotency) that the attraction finally made sense to me. My body had been seeking the remedy for all of the awful feelings I experienced as a victim of different abusers.

As part of Unbecoming, our system slow allows things to surface that we’re ready to release. With that can come tiredness, feelings of unwellness, and a need to take back power in our lives. Ginger is the perfect support for helping care for your whole nervous system and helping you reclaim your spiritual power.

Practice Reminder

My favourite practice with ginger oil is the Sun and Moon massage. First, put 1-4 drops of ginger oil into 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil (I like fractionated coconut or apricot kernel).

Now, using your right hand, begin to make slow, clockwise circles, around your whole belly, forming the “sun” motion. Once you have this motion established, keep moving your right hand.

Add in your left hand, by “following” the right hand around for only the left half of the circle, beginning above the navel, and ending below it, to form the “moon” motion.

Your right hand will be in constant contact with your belly, while your left hand lifts off below the navel and returns to contact only when it’s time to “follow the sun” from above the navel to below the navel again.

Do this mindfully, softly, slowly, and lovingly, applying a comfortable pressure, for 2-3 mins. 

Always make sure to check all safety information for any oil before you try using it. For more information, get the download here.

Why I picked these oils

When I was choosing the oils to accompany Unbecoming the book was already written and had already been read by 100s of people around the world. Adding them wasn’t a planned part of the book, but rather an acknowledgement of what the work actually takes - Unbecoming doesn’t happen in isolation, but in practice, with tools that support you every day, even when you’re not actively “doing the work”.

Over the 2 years since I completed writing on the first edition, I’ve been reflecting on what tools and guides have best accompanied my own Unbecoming throughout life, as it’s a process I’ve essentially always been in. Beyond that, which have best served mentees in my various different roles as a leader and facilitator of spiritual growth, over the past 27 years. The more I looked, the more I realised essential oils were everywhere - they were literally the reason I was thrown out of church in the first place.

The six oils I selected ultimately reflect the needs we have when we’re cut loose from a reality that felt real to us, albeit restrictive and ill-fitting, and begin to create anew. We need to cleanse negative energies with a clear head (eucalyptus), and to reconnect to nature and our own true nature (virginian cedarwood). We need to take back our power (ginger) and to ground into and amplify our own being and intentions (black pepper). We need to heal our wounds, grieve and move forwards positively (marjoram) and to consider what our own Unbecoming means for past, present and future generations, reconciling where we’ve been with where we wish to go as we move forwards, individually and collectively (Siberian fir). 

These oils are all incredibly potent on their own, but also offer many beautiful blending options to meet your changing needs day-by-day as you explore your own Unbecoming and the infinite expansion it offers.

Coach & Energy Healer

I found so much wholeness in myself, in my relationships and my happiness. And out of it was born a beautiful business. And it hasn’t even been a year yet. And I fivexed my revenue. I have consistent sales. I’m overly fully booked with one to one with the most beautiful clients. And one of the things that I think is so important is I have clarity. after all the healing that we did created this beautiful business that it could not be more perfect for me. It’s everything. It’s using my story, my journey, and, I mean, I attract clients so effortlessly. There are now dream clients that come forward, and it’s everything.
