Crystals and Essential OilsImage result for crystals and essential oils spiritual fantasy art

Energy is everywhere,grounding us. It keep all creature and everything alive. Everything vibrate  in specific amplitude. All crystal stones, plant oils, and plant essences from mother Earth resonate with our Inner Being, celestial Beings, and Spirit. There is a Life Force that lovingly and powerfully flows through all, links all, with the primordial sound, the vibration hum of the Universe.There are no right or wrong combinations when working with the gifts from the Earth and Beyond, but there are some that combine synergistic to produce vibrations that open and align the chakras to expand the heart and lift us to a place of Oneness that facilitates vibration well being.

Crystals have their own particular vibration of a precise and measurable intensity. This vibration attunes itself to human vibration better than any other gem or mineral. Quartz crystal is used to amplify, clarify and store energy. When you create a thought, you can amplify and clarify it by using a crystal. Quartz has long been recognized for its ability to produce electrical impulses.It is said that crystal has the ability to rebroadcast energy from the Universal Mind so your “inner self” can pick it up, granting you heightened perception. A crystal is a focus for this knowledge and help, and it magnifies and transmits psychic energies and healing powers.

Essential oils complete the holistic approach by affecting the mind. Due to the fact that these oils stimulate the limbic system, the brain’s own healing mechanism is triggered. By inhaling these fragrances during therapy, the scents’ own healing power enters the bloodstream. When these oils activate the olfactory bulb, it sends electrical impulses to the Limbic system, which affects emotional behavior. This is why people feel invigorated when they smell Rosemary and Basil, and calmed by Chamomile and Jasmine.

Our bodies are such magnificent mechanisms, constantly seeking for our everyday energetic balance on every level; energy vibration  is innate in every living being and the natural equilibrium to which our whole beautiful Being continually seeks to return. We are a finely-tuned, re-balancing mechanism; we need only allow it and balance is magically restored. You are supported, grounded, and in harmony with all that you are choosing to be each day.
Image result for crystalscrystal  is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules, or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions.The process of crystal formation via mechanisms of crystal growth is called crystallization or solidification.The word crystal derives from the Ancient Greek word κρύσταλλος (krustallos), meaning both “ice” and “rock crystal”, from κρύος (kruos), “icy cold, frost”.The scientific definition of a “crystal” is based on the microscopic arrangement of atoms inside it, called the crystal structure. A crystal is a solid where the atoms form a periodic arrangement. Not all solids are crystals. Stones are used for many purposes including Meditation, Divination, Healing, magical oil blends or even crushed in some incense recipes. All gems, stones, crystals hold their own energies or “vibrations”. They respond instantly to the expressed intent of your will. Gem properties are easy for a beginner to master and help build both self-confidence and self-esteem. There are no rules that you must follow and don’t let anyone tell you that there is! It is a personal journey within yourself and you can learn to use stones in just the right way for you. There is another approach that is more metaphysical and sees crystals as a link between earth and the cosmos. Crystals have the ability to transmit and receive energy. They can align our intentions with our greater purpose.Crystals are an amazing manifestation of the mineral kingdom. I have to admit I’ve gathered quite a collection of them over the last few years. I place them at certain areas in my bedroom, on my desk and also in my treatment area at the salon where I do my holistic therapies.
Crystals carry information and have the ability to hold, receive and transmit energy. This is why your intention when using crystals is really important – remember, they can hold and transmit energy – and what are our thoughts…..energy of course! Crystals are then given psychic and health properties. Rose Quartz is good for creating loving and gentle energy. It can be used for stress and heart problems. Not everyone is in agreement on what each mineral or crystal does.

Image result for crystalsCrystals and gems vibrate to the energy of their handlers. It is believed that the atoms or molecular structure of everything around us is can be affected by thoughts, emotions and events. That is why, in metaphysics, thoughts are things.“As a man thinker, so is he.” This applies to crystals and the gemstone we wear, because our thoughts can be transferred to crystals. Crystals are able to store and conduct thought energy inside their molecules due to having the properties of both piezoelectric and pyroelectricity. These molecules constantly vibrate in accordance with their handlers thoughts and as such, need cleansing from negative thoughts so that they can be used properly.

Crystals also need cleansing after being used for healing sessions. They absorb the negativity of the illness and the unconscious negative thought patterns, and therefore, should be cleansed regularly.

It is very important to keep your stones clean. They get dusty but more than that they seem to collect energy so the stones become energetically dirty. There are many ways to clean stones. Putting them under running water can clear them of dust and energy. Care must be taken that the mineral is not water soluble as sandstone or halite (salt) is. Taking them to the beach and allowing the ocean water to wave over them can also clean them. The sun can purify and remove negative energy from the stones. Sitting them in a sunny window with the idea that they will be clean and happy can do the job. Putting minerals in salt or sea salt can clear them. You can also use your mind and focus on the stone bringing your attention to the base of the stone and allowing your mind to move through the stone with the intention of cleaning it. You can also imagine a waterfall falling onto the crystal and taking any unwanted or negative energy away. Large crystal clusters can act as a cleaning chamber if you place smaller stones on them; they can take away unwanted energy.

Then you can always just program a crystal to clear or clean itself after it is used. Programming is a way of focusing a crystal’s intention on what you want it to do. Minerals already have a program from where they were born or mined. Arkansas quartz is different in energy from Brazil quartz. Hold a crystal or mineral in your hand and allow it to become familiar with you. You may not be comfortable with a crystal and may find the same mineral from a different location works better for you. Take the thought that when you put the stone into a window, it will energize and clean itself. The picture could be a smile on the crystal as it sits in the sun letting go of negative or dark energy. As you give the stone this picture and this thought, you are programming it. Some will hold it in their left hand to attune the stone to themselves and then put the stone in their right hand as they program it.

To clear the room’s environment from any unwanted energy, you can smudge, infuse oils, mentally clear the room, or meditate it clean. One way we use here is to put a little Epsom salts and high proof alcohol in a heat proof measuring glass. Light the salts. Let them burn and take this through the room. Once you have completely traveled through the room, blow out the flame or smother it. A few of your favorite oils, can be placed on the hot salts and they will quickly diffuse through the room. This is a very simple and lovely room to clear the environment.
Essential Oils
– Essential oils are Related imageconcentrated liquids extracted from various plants. They have been used for thousands of years for spiritual and emotional uplifting, cosmetic purposes and physical healing. Along with healing crystals, essential oils are an excellent and proven way to heal naturally.It is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essential fatty acid which are so called since they are nutritionally required by a given living organism.Essential oils, like color and crystals and like us all, are pure energy. Essential oils work on all levels of the human body. Each essential oil has its own properties which work with various body systems and organs – just like the chakras, color and crystals.

Essential Oils are concentrated compounds that are extracted from plants. There are a wide variety of ways that Essential oils are extracted, though distillation is the most common method. You will find that the majority of essential oils can be distilled in just one single process.Essential oils work in three major ways to support your well-being:They kill viruses, bacteria and fungi in the air and on your skin, helping you stay healthy and germ-free.
They help reduce pain, inflammation and swelling, easing your aching muscles and joints and they sedate your nervous system, relaxing and loosening tight, tense muscles, calming your nerves and quieting your mind.

Image result for crystals and essential oils fantasy Essential oils are produced by aromatic plants as part of their photosynthesis, once produced, they are stored in specialized structures or pockets distributed according to the botanical species, in the leaves as for example in the case of mint (mentha piperita, in the rind as is the case of the citrus oils such as lemon, citrus limonum, in the petals as in essential oil of rose, rosa centifolia, in the rhizomes as in essential oil of ginger, zingiber officinale, in secretory cells located along the bark which produce a resinous secretion as in the case of essential oil of myrrh, commiphora myrrha, or distributed through more than one of these structures as is the exceptional case of bitter orange, citrus auranthium, which produces three different types of essential oils: pettigrain from the leaves, orange from the rind, and, neroli from the petals.

During your aromatherapy holistic healing session, relaxing music may be played to enhance your experience. Gently, you will be massaged with your individualized essential oil synergies through massage techniques of effleurage, petrissagem vibrations and pressure points to enhance the healing benefits of your individual blend of essential oils and nourishing carrier oils.Always dilute essential oils when applying them to your skin (in a bath or massage oil, for instance.)The one exception to this rule is lavender – it’s safe to apply lavender ‘neat’ (undiluted) in the case of cuts, burns, scrapes, bug bites and such.Pregnant women need to be careful about using essential oils. Only some essential oils are considered to be safe when used in small, well-diluted amounts: cardamom, coriander, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, lemon verbena (also called melissa,) lime, neroli, palmarosa, petitgrain, spearmint and ylang ylang.If you’re highly allergic or have extremely sensitive skin, do a spot test before using essential oils.You should put 1 drop of the essential oil into 15 drops of carrier oil (rice bran oil is probably your best bet) and rub it into your upper chest.If you show no reaction after 12 hours, it’s likely safe to use it.

Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, and cold pressing. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.

The best possible way to use the essential oils is :

  • Inhalation – Aromatherapy, also called essential oil therapy, has been progressing for years and is proven to help with mood, spirituality and physical aliments. There are various types of diffusers that can be used to fill your home with the many fragrances of essential oils. The most common are candle diffusers, electric heat diffusers, and cool air nebulizing diffusers (best to use).
  • On the skin – It is very important NOT to apply essential oils directly to the skin until they have been diluted with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil, almond oil, etc). Essential oils are highly concentrated and should always be diluted. There are a few mild essential oils that can used in its concentrated form, like lavender, but can still cause skin reactions. Always check the labels on the bottles. Compresses can also be used for skin issues, joint pain, bruises and body aches. You will want to put 10 drops of oil into 4 oz of hot water, then soak your cloth in the mixture and use on the problem area.
  • In the bath – Essential oils should always be mixed with salts or an emulsifier (milk, sesame oil, etc) before being placed in the bath. Directly placing oils in the bath can cause dermotoxicity. Mild essential oils, like lavender, rose, sandalwood and others, are considered safe to use in the bath. I would definitely not use any spicy oils, such as cinnamon or thyme. When I use mild essential oils in the bath, I mix 5-10 drops of oil with 1/2 to 1 cup of my bath salt or emulsifier.

Image result for Crystals and Essential OilsThe physical properties inherent in the crystalline structure of crystals allow them to absorb, amplify, and transform energy, and their wide-ranging applications for healing are widely embraced. Underpinning all of these applications are their abilities to support, protect, and re-align the physical and subtle bodies.When working with a client, you can place a crystal programmed to healing into the essential oil that you have selected for your client. It is best to leave this overnight before using on or giving to the client. You can also recommend colors for the client to wear or even provide small color swatches of cloth to which your chosen essential oil has been applied. Which color or crystal you choose depends on the symptoms or illnesses a client may have. Each client can have a specific blend made up for them.

There are some essential oils that are more popular than others for this use including frankincense, myrrh, cedar, sandalwood, and sage are popular choices. However, you can use your favorite essential oils for this method of cleansing.The first option for using essential oils for cleansing your crystals is to to put a few drops of essential oil into water. You will then add your crystals. Some say that you have to soak the stone for hours as with other soaking methods. Others say that the advantage of using essential oils in water is that you can soak them for three to five minutes and cleanse them. You can then use this method on crystals that don’t do well in water with less damage to the stones because they aren’t in the water for long.Another method that some people use for cleansing their stones is to rub a dab of essential oil on the stones. You want to make sure that you aren’t using much. You would then rub the crystal between two oiled fingers. Then gently wipe it with a cloth.

In Ancient times the ether qualities of essential oils were widely employed by priests and priestesses of virtually all religions.  Being so subtle and immaterial, scent was regarded as divine.  Among other things, fragrant oils were used to attract spirits, gods and goddesses, to banish evil energies and to purify the temples.  Devotees and worshipers anointed themselves to offer sweet aromas to the gods and to facilitate divine communion through the subtle energy of these sacred scents.

Recently, the study of the physical and emotional effects of aromatics has become a specialised aspect of herbalism, now widely known as aromatherapy.  Aromatherapists employ both the phytochemical properties of essential oils (e.g. anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory etc.) which render them effective remedies, as well as utilising their more ether qualities as therapeutics for the mind and spirit.  Aromatherapy can therefore be regarded as a truly holistic treatment for the body-mind and the spirit.
