Sacred essential oils for intuition and meditation

To really get down into a deep meditative state and completely lose yourself in just being without thinking takes practice. Years of practice, and then some! I find the right blend of scents, essential oils for intuition, and music can really help me to get into my zone.

{{The BE STILL zone.}}

Maybe the aromatherapy works because all of my inner self-talk starts to focus on the visceral – the aroma – instead of on that noisy chatterbox that lives inside my head.

She’s all words. All the time. And I have to work really hard to get her to just settle down and breathe.

Aromatherapy seems to do the trick for me. It puts me into a very quiet, sacred space; where I’m able to breathe in and to just *stop*.

Or almost stop.

Meditation is hard.

I use essential oils in an oil burner or a nebulizer. (A nebulizer is like a humidifier for essential oils. It’s by far my favourite way to enjoy my favourite scents.)  It allows the oils to get dispersed through the air, making the space smell lovely. And then, if I’m really intent on spending some quiet time with my t̶h̶o̶u̶g̶h̶t̶s̶ non-thoughts, I find that sacred ointments on my forehead (3rd eye), or the wafting smoke of palo santo wood incense sticks help create a atmosphere that’s calming.

Calming – ethereal almost – and conducive to just letting go… and I do my darndest to just phase out and relax.
Of course that little chatter-box brain starts up and begins to tug on the corners of my mind for attention.
(Apparently, she likes to be entertained.)

Sometimes I just count to 100 to put her to sleep.

Other times, I begin counting, and then I fall asleep.

But some days, when the stars and the planets are aligned and the blue moon is setting over Timbuktu – the aromatherapy is strong and I actually get to a wonderfully serene place that feels like I’m there. I’m exactly where I’m suppose to be.

It’s relaxing and healing and wonderfully refreshing.

Because of those days – I am grateful for my scent therapy. I’m not sure I would be able to meditate without it yet. It really does turn on the intuition and the third eye (6th chakra) and allow me to, at very least, get in the mood and relax.

That’s half the battle right there.

Here’s a quick list of some sacred scents for meditation that are specifically aimed at opening up the intuition. This is a topic of choice for me,  so no doubt this list will grow over time.

Intuition Third Eye Sacred Oil

This sacred oil is used for journeying – when you want to practice creative visualization, get closer to the divine, etc. Use a blend of sacred oils (in a carrier, of course!) on the forehead or chakras. A blend of carnation, frankincense and sandalwood is traditional for meditators who love to be at peace in the wild, in a forest, in nature. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: Check with your favorite non-quack doc to make sure that topical essential oils are for you. Also be sure to look into concentrations. Never use essential oils directly on your skin! I’m sensitive and usually need a 0.5%- 1% dilution. There’s a ton of info online from qualified aromatherapists about how to dilute your oils. And some people are allergic at any concentration.

p.s. 🙂 I say “quack” very lovingly. I study acupuncture and traditional chinese herbs part-time, and I feel very comfortable with the term. It is not meant to offend the wonderful healers of the world.
