The mind will toil with the loss of a loved one, but it is the heart that will forever feel the void. After the loss life changes and holidays, anniversaries, birth dates and just plain old everyday living intensifies the void.
Using essential oils which correspond with the ethereal energies of the plants can help us to heal our heart and emotions, attune with the frequency vibrations of the higher realm, relate to the spiritual vibration of the unseen, and give us the strength to accept our loss and move forward.
The truth is our emotions are part of our wholistic wellness and to be at peace and remain joyful is the natural state when all is going as we wish, yet equally important is to find our way back to that state when we experience a loss.
Our heart is a significant part of our wholistic wellness. The circulatory system is affected by our emotional state and therefore does affect our physical health.
Aromatherapy is a useful tool for wholistic wellness. The essential oil from every pure botanical will affect our mind through our sense of smell, our body through direct application and spiritually through their respective dynamic vibration.
Some of the essential oils that are beneficial to the heart are:
Rose (Rosea Damascina) is the primary essential oil pertaining to all matters of the heart, be it emotional as well as physical. It has the highest vibration, the highest frequency, of any essential oil. Rose is a tonic for love and the heart – how we relate to situations for loved ones ourselves and humanity. Rose can help us to have the compassion for ourselves and others by turning our love and loss for the benefit of others. Rose assist with the aligning with the higher self to allow the love force to remain despite death or distance.
Rose Geranium (Pelargonium Graveolens), Rose Geranium helps to balance blood pressure and ease hormonal fluctuations. These two essential oils have been documented to help balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems; in turn this promotes well being by balancing the emotions and reducing stress.
Hyssop (Hyssopus Officinale) And Rosemary (Rosmarinarus Officinale) each offer stimulation of the respiratory system which opens up the alveoli of the lungs for a full breath which oxygenates the blood pumping through the heart.
Clary Sage (Salvia Sclarea) will reduce anger and frustrations, allowing the mind and body to relax and ease tension.
The use of pure essential oils is multifaceted. They may be used in the atmosphere to be breathed or applied directly through massage and/or baths. The fact that all the essential oils are direct from nature adds into the spiritual dimension of healing.
