a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.
Essential oils are found in many sources of plants, stems, roots, flowers and bark on trees. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. Each oil has it’s own components that are used in many things from cosmetics, lotions, bath salts and in healthcare. The oils can be used with a single aroma or with multiples combined.
I am going to talk about a couple of oils that have many uses, but work well with mindfulness and meditation. These are a few of my favorites and the benefits they can offer to help you relax.
Frankincense: This oil has many uses but the aromatic influence is to help focus energy, minimize distraction, and improve concentration. It also helps to ease hyperactivity, impatience, irritability, restlessness and enhance spiritual awareness and meditation. It’s scent is a rich, deep, warm, balsamic, sweet with incense like overtones.
Lavender: This oil promotes consciousness, health, love, peace, and a general sense of well being. It also nurtures creativity. Lavender is a universal oil that has traditionally been known to balance the body and to work wherever there is a need. It may help anxiety, nervous tension, mental clarity, and emotional balance. It’s scent is floral, sweet, herbaceous, balsamic with woody overtones.
White Fir: This oil promotes grounding, anchoring, and empowerment. It can stimulate the mind while allowing the body to relax. Fir creates the symbolic effect of an umbrella protecting the earth and bringing energy in from the universe. It’s scent is fresh, woody, earthy and sweet.
