Mother Earth has shared a beautiful gift with us— essential oils.
Essential oils are highly-concentrated liquids derived from the bark, leaves, stems, flowers, and roots of plants.
For thousands of years, humans have cultivated potent oils for medicinal and therapeutic purposes. This plant medicine’s used for physical and psychological healing. They’ll stabilize your mood, boost your energy, and calm your nervous system.
Essential oils come without chemicals or synthetic perfumes, making them safe for ingestion or application on your skin— that’s why we adore them.
Each essential oil has unique energetic qualities. They’re quite magical when incorporated into your daily rituals, or Moon rituals.
Let’s dive into our favorite essential oils combos. Plus, creative ways to cleanse, amplify and restore the energetic body using essential oils!
We love using essential oils to…
✨Cleanse your sacred altar space.
✨Anchor and ground you during healing work.
✨Clear the energy in your home or a public space.
✨Boost your energy upon waking up, or during morning rituals.
✨Purify your room, and spray on your pillow for a restful night's sleep.
✨Prepare your sacred space for a New or Full Moon Ritual. (Perfect for the upcoming Full Moon in Aquarius on August 1st!)
Essential Oils for Grounding
When we think of grounding into Earth, we think of ginger and vanilla.
Ginger represents rootedness and healthy energetic balance. If you notice patterns of lack, or scarcity, use ginger essential oils to bring abundance into the equation.
Vanilla embodies the energy of relaxation. Vanilla essential oils melt away feelings of overwhelm, tension or stress in your mental and physical body.
When you need to get out of your head and feel your feet on the ground, try our luxurious Grounding line.
Essential Oils for Unconditional Love
When we imagine an open, loving heart we imagine ylang-ylang.
Ylang-Ylang’s derived from a tropical blooming tree. It’s the true embodiment of the Heart— removing heart chakra blockages, healing traumas, processing heavy emotions, and reconnecting us to our inner child.
When you need more love in your life, or you want to spread the love to yourself (or someone else!), use our Pure Love line.
It’ll feel like an energetic hug.
Essential Oils for Letting Go
When it’s time to let go of something or someone, our go-to is essential oils grapefruit and cinnamon.
Grapefruit essential oils are extracted from the peel. Grapefruit represents self-love and healthy habits. Loving yourself, and appreciating your body will naturally occur when using grapefruit. This can help you put yourself first when releasing, or making difficult decisions.
Cinnamon is a spicy oil that aids in digestion, or removal of what’s no longer serving you.
The combination of these powerful oils will help you let go of people, places, thoughts, energies, etc…
Essential Oils for Space Clearing
We love using lavender and lemon when clearing our space— especially for a New or Full Moon circle!
Lavender’s potent energy helps soothe your nervous system and calm insecurities. It’s also known for helping you speak your innermost truth.
Lemon essential oil’s the embodiment of restoration. Not only does it clear stagnant energies, but it also invites in new, positive energy.
Try our luscious Space Clearing auric spray! Spritz the perimeter of your sacred circle before beginning any ritual.
Essential Oils for Protection
When we think of potent cleansing oils, we think of lemongrass and eucalyptus.
Lemongrass cleanses feelings of despair, stagnation, and hopelessness. When you’re energetic field feels weak and needs an infusion of strength, lemongrass swoops in to save the day.
Eucalyptus’s aromatic abilities promote feelings of self-love, and empowerment so you don’t fall victim to negative energies around you (it’s perfect for people that work with the public!).
