Essential oils are a valuable part of my feng shui toolbox. During home blessings, I smudge spaces with a proprietary blend of cleansing oils. I also frequently recommend certain diffuser oils to clients based on their bagua and energetic needs.
Aromatherapy pairs perfectly with Feng Shui because odors and fragrances immediately shift the energy - altering the vibrational frequency and flow of your space or body. We've all been in situations in our life where we have experienced that our sense of smell can evoke powerful memories and feelings.
Just as indoor plants purify the air and improve the atmosphere, so can their derivatives.
These pure essences are the life force of mother nature - carefully extracted and distilled from flowers, trees, roots, fruits, rinds, and herbs of the world.
While there are several ways to get the oils into your system (topically, through ingestion, or inhalation) the easiest way to get them into your space and reap the Feng Shui benefits is to diffuse them gently in the air.
Some essential oils are uplifting (such as Lemon and Peppermint), some are calming (such as Lavender and Vetiver), some serve as remedies for physical ailments (such as Eucalyptus or Geranium), some are designed to heal emotional trauma (Frankincense or Bergamot) or connect spiritually (Cedarwood or Sandalwood)
Wondering which oils reap the most benefits in your home? Here are some of most popular essential oils in Feng Shui based on the 5 elements:
Earth: Rosemary, Vetiver, Patchouli, Lavender, Thyme,
Fire: Lime, Tangerine, Nutmeg, Orange, Cinnamon, Ginger.
Water: Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Spearmint,
Metal: Frankincense, Bergamot, Geranium.
Wood: Tea Tree, Cedarwood, Lemongrass, Pine, Cypress, Spruce
Sickness, decay, disease, dust, and mold thrive in places with a low energetic frequency. You can use oils to boost the vibrational wavelength and promote healing and repair at the cellular level of your body, or to create harmony and balance in Chi of a space.
Rose: (320 mhz) Rose essential oil is the product of one of the most recognizable and culturally significant flowers in the world—has a rich, intoxicating and uplifting aroma that’s just as beautiful as the bloom itself. Because each 5 ml bottle requires 22 pounds of rose petals, Rose is one of the most expensive essential oils you can acquire. Rose oil creates an inspiring atmosphere, encouraging positive self-reflection and elevated spiritual experiences.
Frankincense: (147 mhz) This amazing oil is the most powerful essential oil for the spirit. Use this aromatic oil to ground and balance you. It can help relieve stress, clear your nasal passages, and reduce pain and inflammation
Lavender: (118 mhz) This is one of the most popular and commonly used oils. Treat the air with lavender to stabilize and calm you so you can release those negative thoughts. Lavender is an antidepressant, can help ward off anxiety and is a relaxant. With so many uses, this essential oil is a must-have.
Sandalwood: (96 mhz) Sandalwood is extremely cleansing and helps to lift the spirits while breaking up negative thoughts. It’s woody scent relaxes the muscles and helps to relax the inner noise and busy mind, giving you the ability to relax and focus. This oil also acts as an aphrodisiac.
