Cerridwen Greenleaf, author of The Herbal healing Handbook, has written a new blog post on how to use different essential oils to bring different types of positive energy into your life.
Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts of flowers, herbs, roots, or resin extract, sometimes diluted in neutral base oil. Try to ensure you are using natural oils instead of manufactured, chemical-filled perfume oils; the synthetics lack any real energy. Also, approach oils with caution, and don’t get them in your eyes. Clean cotton gloves are a good idea to keep in your kitchen for handling sensitive materials. You can avoid any mess and protect your magical tools by using oil droppers. While you are learning and studying, find a trusted herbalist or the wise sage at your local metaphysical shop; usually their years of experience offer much in the way of useful knowledge you can use to your advantage. I have included as much as I can in this at-a-glance guide to oils. These essential oils are excellent choices for anointing lamps as well as yourself:
Cinnamon is energetic, spicy, and warm. It stimulates the mind as well as the body.
Ginger is vigorous and revitalizing and heightens desire and comfort.
Jasmine sparks sensuality and inspires feelings of positivity, confidence, and pure bliss.
Lavender is soothing, calming, nurturing, and relaxing.
Orange is a light, citrusy oil that restores balance and lifts moods, enhancing playful emotions.
Rose brings youthfulness, enhances self-esteem, aids circulation, and relieves tension.
Sandalwood is a woody aroma that relieves tension and relaxes tense muscles.
Ylang-ylang’s sweet, floral aroma is used as an aphrodisiac; it is relaxing and reduces worry and anxiety
