Hi there, Pretty Blossom!
Welcome to the beautiful World of Essential Oils! This is your third Holistic Healing Tool that we will be using here at Where Juniper Grows. 🙂
What are Essential Oils?
Why do I use Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are Mother Natures Medicine. They have countless uses, and have been used specifically for emotional aromatherapy for thousands of years! 🙂 Today, popular uses include everything from minor first aid and alternative medicine, to using them as natural cleaners, to use in cooking, scented candles and body products. During out time together, however, we will be using them in the following four ways, depending on your personal needs.
- Chakra Balancing (along with healing crystals)
- Space Clearing and adding Good Vibes (negative ions) to your Environment
- Mood Management
- Emotional and Spiritual Self-Healing
How do I use Essential Oils?
There are a three main application methods used when working with essential oils. These methods are;
- Topical Application (properly diluted with a carrier oil when necessary)
- Aromatic (breathed in from an open bottle, or diffused into the air via a diffuser)
- Internal (I do not recommend, but feel free to use your own judgment)
Personally, I only use Essential Oils Topically, and Aromatically.
There are many Theraputic Grade Essential Oils that are labeled as being “safe for internal use”, but I would encourage you to do our homework. Make sure that you are comfortable with your knowledge of how to use essential oils internally, before attempting this application method. Internal use of essential oils is not an area that I touch upon during my workshops, in my blog, or in my personal practice, but if this interests you, you may enjoy the Modern Essentials Book for more information! 🙂
What Essential Oil Brand is the best?
There are many essential oil companies out there, with many different levels of purity and grade. I have used a few different brand in the past, but today I strictly use Doterra Oils. This is just my personal preference, what I teach with, and the brand that I highly recommend to my student and clients. Here is a post explaining why I choose Doterra for myself and my family. 🙂
Essential Oils are AMAZING!
I believe they are the best tool you can use for immediate stress relief and mood management.
