In a session with Alexandriah Stahr, I asked about my allergy to Peru Balsam. She had already helped me with my eczema, and I have been clear of that for some time now, but I was curious about the cause of my allergy for Peru Balsam. It is supposedly a tree that is native to Peru and is known as a common allergen.
She had previously explained to me that I should clear karma with products as I do with people and areas. She asked if I had cleared karma with the tree. I didn’t think of that earlier, so we also did that in the session.
Before my eczema was cleared, I took a patch test at the dermatologist’s office to find out if there was any allergy that was the cause of the inflamed skin. What set off the eczema was that I put a lot of different essential oils on my skin, that triggered a reaction, but I didn’t know which of the products I used that caused the eczema. Because once inflamed, the skin seemed to react to almost everything I put on it. This is when I was prompted to start making my own toiletries.
A number of surveys have identified Balsam of Peru as being in the “top five” allergens most commonly causing patch test reactions in people referred to dermatology clinics. It may cause inflammation, redness, swelling, soreness, itching, and blisters, including allergic contact dermatitis, stomatitis (inflammation and soreness of the mouth or tongue), cheilitis (inflammation, rash, or painful erosion of the lips, oropharyngeal mucosa, or angles of their mouth), pruritis, hand eczema, generalized or resistant plantar dermatitis, rhinitis, and conjunctivitis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balsam_of_Peru
I had previously experienced episodes of eczema, when I was younger, but hadn’t thought of checking if it was caused by allergy, because the doctor just gave me cortisone, and that was that.
But now being older, a little wiser, and a Star Team member, I was ready to get to the bottom of this.
Balsam of Peru is a sticky aromatic liquid that comes from cutting the bark of the tree Myroxolon balsamum, a tree that is native to El Salvador. The ‘Peru’ part of Balsam of Peru originates from when it was first named, El Salvador then being part of a Peruvian colony. Balsam of Peru smells of vanilla and cinnamon because it contains 60-70% cinnamein (a combination of cinnamic acid, cinnamyl cinnamate, benzyl benzoate, benzoic acid and vanillin). The other 30-40% contains resins of unknown composition. It also contains essential oils similar to those in citrus fruit peel. These are all potential allergens.
Balsam of Peru has 3 main uses: fragrance in perfumes and toiletries; flavouring in food and drink; healing properties in medicinal products.
Interestingly, what Alexandriah saw was a past life of mine, in the area where these trees would grow. She saw me pour a bath for someone, and that I used aromatics like oils/perfumes. Alexandriah told me that the tree, Balsam of Peru, was Annunaki, and I thought no wonder I was allergic to that! It is an unChristed tree and not even supposed to be here. Since allergic reactions in the body is supposed to protect it, my system was telling me that something was wrong, but it took me some time to figure out what it was. Thank you Alexandriah for that! She helped me heal my past life and reclaim my energy, along with the abilities and talents I had then. It is so great to be conscious of the cause, and to know that the problem that came up for clearing, was a part of me that tried to tell me something. You can say, the clearing in the Star Team over time helps you to heal and collect every part of you and uncover your abilities and talents. Now I know why I am interested in aromatics and esthetics, and making my own soap and other beauty products.
