Spiritual Aromatherapy

The use of fragrance in making a spiritual connection is one the most ancient and enduring human activities.

Whether we pray to God, Christ, Buddha, Mother Earth, Father Sky – spirituality is about “making a connection”. We may take different routes, but the destination is the same.

The fragrant molecules that are essential oils, have been the vehicle for many spiritual journeys.

From a vibrational and energetic point of view, essential oils are in total harmony with life. They resonate with us, as the vibration of one cello string can cause vibration to another.

And what’s so remarkable about essential oils, is that they influence the “whole being” – body, mind and spirit.

When choosing an essential oil for spiritual connection, the chemical aspects are not as important because they are not being required to act on the physical matter of the body. What is most important is the energy of the essential oil, it’s vibrational note, which interacts with our own spiritual harmonic note as part of the universal symphony. This is why YOU must choose which essential oil is used.

When purchasing essential oils, it is very important that they are pure and not diluted with fixatives and other components. They can be purchased via the Internet or can also be found in a natural health food store. I strongly suggest testing various aromas before you make a purchase. This is a fun and enjoyable way to decide which oil “feels right” for you.

Listed below are four essential oils and their spiritual properties that I have found very helpful for my own spiritual connection. This is only a starting point for you. Remember: Choose the oils that feel special to you.

Frankincense

Warm, sweet, balsamic, spicy, incense-like

This sweet protector of the heavens operates far beyond the auric field, in the light realms. It is adaptogenic– it will adapt to a person’s spiritual state of being, offering support in a wide range of circumstance. Frankincense is elevating, spiritual, and meditative, and holds the wisdom of the Universe.

Chamomile German

Sweet, straw-like, and herby

The fragrance of this “blue chamomile” assists us in seeking spiritual understanding, with purpose and direction. It allows a deeper knowledge of the working of certain angelic orders who work close to the earth. German Chamomile can help the transference of prayers, and gives a clearer understanding of Universal energies and laws.

Juniper

Fresh, fruity, woody

Juniper’s message is to complete the tasks and learn the lessons. It clears obstructions on our path to the Divine Spirit. While facilitating the transmission of our thoughts and prayers, it offers itself as a protective shield, disallowing negative thoughts to pervade our meditations and conversations with the Universe. A cleansing and purifying action takes place when Juniper’s fragrance is inhaled. It’s spirit can speak to our heart and mind.

Bergamont

Sweet, fruity, citrus with spicy-floral undertones

The high frequency of Bergamont is an amplifier of light energy – energizing and magnifying, opening the heart to joy. Bergamont lightens the shadows of the mind, bringing illumination and laughter, dispelling an aching heart, self-criticism and blame. Bergamont teaches that the help of the angelic realms is ever present; all we have to do is reach for it.

Before Prayer or Meditation

  • Place a single drop of the essential oil of your choice in the palm of one hand, then gently rub both palms together.

  • Then cup your hands and bring them up about 2 inches away from your nose and mouth (as if you are shouting to someone).

  • Close your eyes and take 5 deep relaxing breaths – allowing your body to surrender with each exhale.

  • Rest both hands on each leg or knee.

  • Then simply allow yourself……to receive!

I joyfully encourage you to explore the wonderful world of essential oils – allowing them to give you the valuable gifts they each hold within their essence. They will gently and compassionately guide you to a higher connection with the Source……and touch your heart along the way!

Be Well!

  1. Good Tuesday Morning Ron ! How are you doing today ?

    The sense of smell/fragrance is so important to me ! My personal affinities are for lemon, orange, almond and vanilla…

    Juniper is my favorites of the ones that you mentioned.

  2. Hello Annie!

    Grassy for stopping by!

    The sense of smell is SO important to me too! My part-time retail job involves the promotion of fragrances for women and men. It’s a company that I am “so proud” to represent. Their fragrances are awesome……VERY European and different.

    Hey listen…if you love orange….please check out Bergamont. It’s an Italian fruit that is in the “orange family”….fresh, crisp and clean. The essential oil has an abundant amount of “happy energy” to it. I mix it with Lavender sometimes when I’m in the mood for a “blend”. The two together produce a “relaxing and enlightening” mood. VERY powerful.

    I’m planning on a post that will explain how to use essential oils in lotions, shampoos, and sprays for the body. I enjoy creating my own personal body products through each “season change” – so I will be sharing those tips soon!

    Thanks for being a “fellow-scent lover”……it’s one of my passions!

    Be well,
    Ron

  3. Good Wednesday morning Ron ! How are you ?

    I will check out Bergamont. Thank you for the tip !

    Your part-time retail job must be fun. There are several wonderful fragrances out there.

    I used to LOVE Paul Sebastian for Men in the black box with the gold writing… For 25 years, if I smelled that on man, I literally melted. He could have been Quasimodo and I’d think he was gorgeous because of how he smelled…

    I love Sud Pacifique’s ‘vanille passion’ right now for women…

  4. Morning Annie!

    How funny…..on Monday at work, I was waiting on a customer at the store and she was trying out different scents for her boyfriend. She tried a couple “new ones” and didn’t really like them. Then suddenly she said, “Do you still carry Paul Sebastian for men?….it use to be MY FAVORITE fragrance that he wore.”

    I sware to God Annie…… How funny is that? No one EVER mentions that fragrance. Anyway, we DID have it….so when she left, I gave it a Whiff….and I thought, “Not bad at all”.

    Hummm…..must be Karma….maybe that will be my new/old fragrance for the summer.

    Is’nt fragrance such a powerful influence? I freaking LOVE it.

    Anyway…..thanks for being in synchronicity with my daily life…how cool is that?

    Have a fabulous Weds…..

    Be well,
    Ron

  5. Ron,
    Not bad ? That stuff is bone-meltingly, drop dead, SEXY !!!!

    That was too cool for words she was asking for it… The first time I smelled it was 24 years ago !!! that’s awesome they still carry it !!!

    Buy the computer, Ron. Graft some of my aries on to your libra and take the plunge !
    And I’m glad you finally got a salesperson that spoke understandably !

  6. Peace Annie!

    It’s funny…..my moon is in Aries……you your right, damn it…..buy the freaking thing!.

    Well, I’m off to Staples!

    I’ll let you know when I get it all set up!

    Be well,
    Ron
    Mr. Sabastian

  7. Happy Friday Ron !

    We do have a synchronicity somehow sometimes, don’t we !

    Some of those little furry critters are just adorable — but I’d rather bite into a chocolate one ! (lol)

    Black jelly beans are your favorite ? What flavor are they ? Licorice ?

    Did you get your new computer set up ?

    Hope you have a good Easter, and stay warm !

  8. Hey Annie!

    Yes we do! It seems like all of us who blog together have this synchronicity. How cool is that? That makes me feel so nice…..BLOG KARMA!

    Yes…licorice. Most people hate them, but for some reason the taste just agrees with me. And black twizzlers…….to die for! I think it’s a “male thing”. Guys seem to like it. Maybe we’re freaks!

    Yes….my computer is UP and RUNNING like a charm. I was alittle concerned about Windows Vista (I heard some nightmares) – but so far, so good. I haven’t hooked up my printer yet. I’m leaving that for tomorrow. I got a 17 inch monitor screen and it amazes me how much I’ve been MISSING. My blog looks enormous! And so much easier to read.

    Annie…you TOO have a good Easter……I’m getting ready to do an Easter post……so stop by.

    Be well,
    Ron

  9. ummmm.. i like black jelly beans. what does that make me? Hey smellman..how do my fabulous photos look on the NEW GIANT screen computer??? so glad you are enjoying the trip pics.

    Wait til I blab on about the Juniper Trees!!!

    I just wanted to say, this was an awesome post. And yes, very good information, but I think each person has to pick the scents that work for them… I am very very very sensitive to smells…so it is of utmost importance that I choose them wisely. and I have become very intollerant to chemical fake smells…like household products, and most perfumes. I can only stomach pure essential oils…

    anyway, i posted one more antelope canyon pic this morning. enjoy & have a fantastic tuesday!

  10. Morning Meredith!!!

    Thanks for stopping by….I’ll stop by your blog later this evening…..I’m off to my volunteer day!

    Black jelly beans ROCK!!!!!!!!

    Be well,
    Ron
