Essential Oils and Spiritual Healing

Aromas and scents are powerful. They attract certain beings and repel others. As healing practitioners, we can use them to our advantage. Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plant-derived oils, or essential oils, to promote good health, emotions and a relaxed state of being.

Often, aromatherapy is combined with other holistic, spiritual and mind-body practices to enhance the overall experience and beneficial effect. This includes using an essential oil diffuser to fill a space with scent while meditating or doing energy work. Aromatherapy can also amplify practices such as chakra balancing, aura cleansing, and kundalini awakening.

Aside from the lush olfactory pleasure derived from smelling lovely scents, aromatherapy is beloved by many people because it is considered a holistic, natural and non-invasive way to achieve some health benefits. Many people who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disorders, headaches, sinus conditions and a host of other health issues turn to aromatherapy as a complementary or alternative therapy.

Essential oils have similarly long histories as natural remedies for a variety of ailments, conditions, and health. Essential oils are distilled from the bark, leaves, flowers, and roots of a plant. The highly concentrated fluid that results from the distilling process means that only a few drops are needed to realize their benefits. Essential oils are usually suspended in the more-stable carrier oils and either applied topically, inhaled or massaged into the skin.

High-quality, spiritual essential oil blends can be used in a variety of ways.
To aerosolize essential oils, you can use burners, diffusers, vaporizers, and misters. More subtle scents can be achieved by dabbing a few drops of essential oil on an aromatherapy bracelet, personal crystal or healing stone. You can also add a few drops to a bowl of hot water to create aromatic steam, or you can add them to your bath for a cleansing soak.

Cautions to consider with essential oils for spiritual protection or other use – many full-strength essential oils can trigger skin reactions and problems when placed directly on the skin. Always make sure your essential oils are diluted with safe carrier oils, and be sure to perform a skin test on a small patch of skin before using more extensively.

Those who suffer from asthma, some respiratory conditions and a history of allergies or seizures should always check with a physician before using essential oil.

Scents are invaluable tools in spiritual healing practices. Aromatherapy and essential oils can prepare a healing practitioner, our workspace or a tool for action. Each herb and incense serve a distinct purpose; the following is a simple list of some common herbs and incenses as well as the best spiritual essential oils and their functions.

The essential oils are another very effective tool provided by nature to help us increase body energy vibrations and to protect us against attacks by entities from the lower realms. 



Healing Emotional, Mental and Physical Bodies with Subtle Energy Work

We are energy beings and are energetically protected by our life force, our aura, and chakra centers. However, these subtle body energy fields can be harmed or blocked through pain, trauma, hurtful negative emotions, and thoughts or energetic attacks.

When that happens our energy flow and chakras get unbalanced or blocked, preventing us from living mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually healthy lives. Potentially, energy blockages can manifest in disease or chronic illness.

The good news is that we can remove these energy blockages and heal our energy bodies with consistent, subtle body energy work.

There are quite a few healing practices we can use to achieve energetic healing, some of these methods can be employed in concert with each other to amplify the results.

Healing Emotional, Mental and Physical Bodies with Subtle Energy Work

1. Subtle Aromatherapy

This practice is known as “as persuasive resonance”.

The idea behind this method is to allow the energetic vibrations of various essential oils to interact with our body’s energy fields, helping them to shift towards balance, thus aligning them with the Universal life force to start the process of healing. The oils carry the life force of plants, which helps to synergize with your subtle body’s own life force.

Subtle aromatherapy can also stimulate our psyche, emotional, mental and physical body when our endocrine, nervous systems and the brain’s limbic system are positively affected by the oils’ compounds.

On a sensory level, this practice can help our general well-being, stimulating our senses and filling us with joy and happiness. In turn, these positive emotions can help balance our chakras and subtle energy bodies.

2. Flower Essences




This healing method is very similar to Subtle Aromatherapy practice, as it works on the same principles but is limited to the oils extracted from flowers and blossoms of plants.

3. Aura Cleansing




When aura energy fields are polluted by negative vibrations produced by lower emotions and thought it will affect the vitality and strength of your general energy field. One of the best ways to cleanse the aura is to meditate, grounding yourself and allowing your energy fields to release negative energies.

4. Chakra Balancing



Within aura energy fields, chakra energy wheels receive and transmit energy. When chakras are aligned and balanced healing of the subtle body is achieved more effectively. Chakra balancing is traditionally reached through meditation, yoga, and aromatherapy.

Best Essential Oils For Spiritual Healing

Clary sage, Frankincense, Mirth, Sandalwood and Peppermint are the most effective essential oils used by healing practitioners.

1. Clary sage

Clary Sage


Clary sage has an earthy, nutty smell that is sometimes compared to tobacco. This deep, rich scent pairs well with a variety of floral and fruit essential oils. Its many benefits, emotionally and physiologically, make it a frequent addition to essential oil blends.

2. Frankincense


Frankincense cleans and tunes a space, for example. Known for its warm, earthy yet slightly sweet citrus scent, Frankincense is a popular choice for many aromatherapy enthusiasts. Frankincense has been an important part of natural healing for thousands of years, spanning many civilizations, spiritual practices, and eras. Frankincense comes from the dried sap of Boswellia trees, which are commonly found in the deserts of North Africa. In its purest forms, this sacred essential oil’s beneficial properties are widely embraced as aromatherapy, topical application, and oral treatment. This essential oil is often blended with myrrh to enhance and complement frankincense’s effects.

3. Myrrh


Like frankincense, myrrh has been used in naturopathic healing practices for several millennia. If you’re new to the use of essential oils, you may know myrrh from its many Christian biblical references. Myrrh’s use spans many spiritual and religious cultures, though, and is often used for its antioxidant properties. When used as an aromatherapy essential oil, myrrh is often blended with complementary scents such as frankincense, sandalwood, clove, eucalyptus, jasmine, lavender, juniper berry, grapefruit and/or lemon.

4. Sandalwood


Sandalwood is a common addition to essential oil blends, bringing a lovely fragrance of the woods to an essential oil blend. While it promotes a feeling of calm and well-being, it differs from other calming essential oils such as lavender in that it does not promote feelings of sleepiness. This feature makes sandalwood a good essential oil to use if you want to find peace and serenity without feeling sleepy. In fact, one study found that sandalwood aromatherapy has a relaxing and calming effect on patients who were getting ready to receive stressful care. Sandalwood essential oil also offers many other health and emotional benefits.

5. Peppermint



Peppermint is a beloved smell for many. A whiff of peppermint can transport you back to childhood and holiday candy canes. It’s fresh,  tangy aroma is so appealing and clean-smelling that it is frequently used in toothpaste, gums and breath mints. When it comes into contact with skin, skin often begins to tingle a little.
