I was way behind the essential oils movement. I first discovered them from a yoga teacher 3 years ago when I showed up to one of her classes with a stuffy nose. She whipped out this little black case with a small glass vial and stuck it under my nose. After a few seconds of inhaling it, I could breathe! SOLD.
After that I joined DoTerra as a Wellness Consultant. You can browse or purchase oils through me here.
I use essential oils every day now – for medicinal, health and even housekeeping purposes. Some of my favorite uses are in my spiritual practice. They have been instrumental in my spiritual development, meditations and ability to connect with Spirit.
Here’s a list of my favorites and some of their spiritual benefits.
LAVENDER– THE top used essential oil in my house. The violet energy of lavender is most often associated with the crown
chakra and spiritual connection; however, lavender can be used for healing and balancing of all the major chakras.
Used in a diffuser, lavender is a calming aid for meditation or grounding. It brings peace and balance to the room.
Add it to liquid bath soap with some sea salt and make your own energy cleansing shower scrub!
LEMON and/or ORANGE – I love the smell of anything citrus! It’s a mood elevator and energy lifter providing increased clarity and awareness necessary when connecting with Spirit.
Citrus also exudes cleanliness, so as you can imagine, it’s a purifier. I use it in sprays or a diffuser when performing a house clearing.
FRANKINCENSE– this traditionally holy oil is great for helping ease the mental traffic that can plague us during meditation.
It opens the crown chakra and aids in grounding. I rub a drop in my hands and inhale deeply before I start my daily meditation.
PEPPERMINT– Peppermint oil is a great refresher and can help to keep you from nodding off during meditation if you have a propensity to do so!
For many of us, dreams can be the times when our loved ones visit or when our bodies and spirits perform self-healing. Peppermint can support lucid and vivid dreaming which enhances this time of increased awareness and openness to Spirit.
ROSE or ROSEWOOD – I’d be happy to just roll around in this stuff all day long! There is no oil more tranquil and peaceful than a good quality, pure rosewood.
I am called to use it frequently during energy healings, as an effective catalyst for spiritual healing by opening the heart chakra. It can help to release grief and fear and allows us to be more receptive to healing energy.
SANDALWOOD – This is another powerful oil that clears negative energy. It is effective in opening and balancing the crown chakra, facilitating spiritual development. It’s also an effective aid for grounding and balancing of the root chakra.
Of course there are many, many other uses for each of these as well as a litany of other oils available to support us. I use them now on a daily basis. If you haven’t started using essential oils for your spiritual practice or general health and wellness, I can’t recommend them enough.
