Essential Oils for Spirituality

Essential Oils Being DiffusedAromatic herbs and oils, including essential oils, have been an integral part of the spiritual practices of many religions and cultures throughout history. Below are a list of some of the essential oils associated with paritcular spiritual applications.

This is not intended to be a complete list. If a particular essential oil personally speaks out to you, consider incorporating it within your own spiritual practices after you have learned about the oil and understand any warnings or contraindications associated with the oil. For instance, once in awhile, I feel called to use Manuka while meditating yet it isn't an oil generally known for its spiritual applications.
