How To Meditate With Inhalers?

0-635254306-girlmeditating essential oils inhalers utilizes the magical healing power of (Nature’s) essential oils via olfaction the sense of smell. Oil was the first medicine used by modern humanity. Essential oils are the basis of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is an ancient healing art and craft that uses essential oils (the blood of plants) to help relieve, treat, and heal a wide variety of emotional, spiritual and physical problems.

Essential oils are plant extracts derived from various parts of plants flowers, barks, roots, seeds, peels, and blossoms, which capture the essence of a plants characteristics and healing/therapeutic properties.

Essential oils possess an herbal effect or influence similar to the original plant source, however, essential oils are nearly 100 times more concentrated.

Our inhalers work via inhalation or smell. When essential oils are inhaled, they trigger the olfactory nerves (in the nose) which are directly connected to the limbic system of our brain which is the part of the brain responsible for controlling reactions, breathing, emotions, and more.

Our bodies (all eight of them, including the seven subtle bodies that make up the human bio-sheath or aura) react to an aroma before it can even be identified by the physical mind. Tiny molecules of essential oils enter the bloodstream through the normal respiratory process providing a secondary benefit similar to direct application.

With our inhalers, all you have to do is simply inhale when you feel the need to acquire the specific or desired effect happiness, joy, calmness, clearer breathing, sexual stimulation, balance, release, etc. These emotions and feelings are not the result of essential oils, but are just influenced by them. Everything the human desires is within!

Step One

To meditate, one must break away, however briefly, from the world. Turn off your cell phone and pager, disconnect the fax machine, shut down the computer and turn on the answering machine…allow no interruptions during this special time. Place a “Do Not Disturb” sign or “In Meditation” sign on your doors (especially front door of your home). Also if possible wear simple loose fitting clothes.

Step Two

Decide whether you’d like to have meditation music in the background. Silence is better, but music in the beginning may be helpful to you. The choice is yours!

Step Three

Select a comfortable chair or place to sit (one free from distractions), and assume a sitting position with your spine relatively straight. Keep the face serene. Chin up.

*Where Should I Meditate? You may wish to set aside a special corner of one room, your own private sanctuary, a calm, quiet and peaceful place. You might furnish the area with objects or icons that have spiritual meaning for you, developing a little altar or shrine. Use what will put you into a contemplative frame of mind.

*How Should I Sit When I Meditate? Although the classic posture is to sit with legs folded and hands resting quietly on the lap or the knees, the key is to find a way of sitting that is comfortable for you.

Step Four

Relax. Close your eyes slowly to experience a void darkness. (Remember to keep your eyelids closed throughout the following steps)

*Look into your eyelids as if seeing with your eyelids open.

Step Five

Inhale (sniff) the inhaler and then remove from your nostril.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OIL INHALERS? Our Inhalers utilizes the magical therapeutic power of Nature’s essential oils via olfaction, the sense of smell. Oil was the first medicine used by modern humanity. Essential oils are the basis of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is an ancient healing art and craft that uses essential oils (the blood of plants) to help relieve, treat, and heal a wide variety of emotional, spiritual and physical problems.

When essential oils are inhaled, they trigger the olfactory nerves (in the nose) that are directly connected to the limbic system of our brain which is the part of the brain responsible for controlling reactions, breathing, emotions, and more.

*Open inhaler, close your eyes and mouth, inhale gently and deeply and repeat your positive thought, affirmation, or meditation.

NOTE: True mediation does not require any affirmations, words, or even concentration, just total silence. You can simply sniff your inhaler and just sit in silence if you like.

Step Six

Say the affirmation* (SLOWLY) approximately 5-10 times.

*Affirmation that pertains to your Dherbs Inhaler are below under – MEDITATION AFFIRMATIONS FOR DHERBS INHALES.

Step Seven

After saying these words (verbally or silently in your mind), Keep breathing steady for about 5 minutes and listen to what is being revealed to you.

Step Eight

Let thoughts come and go. You’re on a journey* going beyond the body and form.

*Experience the motion of going, as if driving in a car, and you’ll be going deeper and deeper – beyond the body and senses.

Step Nine

Open your eyes after you feel more relaxed and centered; gradually open your eyes and spring back to Earth (3rd Dimension) with renewed energy.

Tips & Warnings
Believe it or not, daily meditation can have a great impact on your sense of calm. Also when practiced regularly, meditation can aid in reducing stress, assist in healing, lowering blood pressure, significantly lowering the risk of sudden death by heart attack or stroke, and increasing personal awareness.

Begin with 5 to 10 minutes of meditation each day and increase to 20 minutes or more twice each day.

Answers come through the medium of silence; and the affirmation of a thing, makes the desire for the thing stronger and more obtainable. To affirm means to: “make stronger.” In the word “affirm” is FIRM, i.e. Af-FIRM!

You can repeat meditation throughout the day as much as you like. It is also best to do meditation/affirmation before going to bed each night (during a Dherbs cleanse and/or after).

If necessary, write your affirmation(s) down on a piece of paper and look at throughout the day as a reminder. Whether you chose to use the inhaler for purposes of the affirmation is up to you. However, we recommend use of the inhaler along with saying the affirmations. Smell is a powerful in stimulating thoughts.

The real miracle of meditation is a subtle transformation that happens not only in your mind and your emotions but also in your body. And, this transformation is a healing one.

    Q: I have read that Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary and Sage essential oils are all good for hair and stimulating hair growth. Would it be more beneficial to use them all at once for maximum result or should I just use the Rosemary and Sage only as you suggested? Also, I didn?t see any Almond oil so I was wondering if I could use Olive oil or Jojoba oil as a carrier oil.


    Yes they are great for stimulating hair growth; however, I would use them together or combined. ANY natural edible oil can be used - it's YOUR choice. Jojoba and/or sesame seed oil are the best oils for the hair.

    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.


    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: I'm a 28 year old male with big dreams and high aspirations. However, I've been dealing with issues of sustained motivation, and fear for the past 10 years. As a result my life has suffered socially, and financially. I see many people around me getting ahead, but I seem to be trailing behind at every step. The hardest task I think I deal with is keeping my life in balance, and staying focused with all I desire to do. I've struggled with changing my beliefs about myself and reprogramming my mind for success for a long time.


    You have some inner blocks that are holding you back. The problems are recorded in your chakras and thus you should have chakra work performed by a qualified (doesn't mean "certified"), and trusted energy healer. Instead of focusing on keeping your life in balance, focus on what you desire to do only. I really suggest that you read my e-book manuals: "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity Manual", "The Mental Science Manual", and the new "Discovering Your Life's Higher Purpose" (highly recommended). I can totally relate to what you're saying and experiencing! You're just blocked! You may have some vital information stored in your natal chart as well. You need an inner diagnosis performed. If you order all the tools named above, I will give you the consultation for free so we can nail down the location(s) of the inner blockages. You very well may be blocked at the First, and Third chakras. Fear is stored in the First chakra, just to let you know. You can be helped, Beloved! Stay positive, and focus on your desires. Like I state in the "Mental Science Manual", play in your mind! Live in it and miraculously the things stored in the mind, and constantly played out will manifest.

    Q: First of all, I will like to say thanks for such wonderful product. I truly believe that I am blessed to come across this site. My concern is this: I bought the FULL BODY DETOX this is my third and final week on it, yet, I have not had regular bowel movement daily. At times, I may have a movement once a day and after few days have another. One of my excitements was, to lose some weight as well as cleanse myself. What do I need to do? My next step is to buy the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am waiting for your advice as to what step to take next before buying it. Thanks for your kindness and willingness to listen.


    Lack of bowel movements means your colon is compacted. It may take some time but the herbs will regulate it. Drink more water, drink BOWEL MOVER TEA and also drink prune juice (especially at night before bed). I suggest you perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE next followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am glad you enjoy Dherbs.Com!

    Q: Hi, I am currently on the Anti-Viral Cleanse and I can feel that it is working. Mainly I am noticing I'm having dreams of past experiences which have emotional trauma which I have associated with having herpes. These are really intense and I know they are the herbs working as these are memories I have tried to repress for years. Is there anything you recommend to help shift this stored energy? I think I need help to move these emotions or the healing won't be complete. Also - I forgot to take the pills for an entire day and a half on the cleanse as I was delayed at a work conference. Will this break the entire cleanse and I need to start from the beginning again? I look forward to hearing from you, Emily Steckelbruck +61 413 391 064


    Sometimes your emotions does affect the healing process. You can try using some of the Elixirs to help clear out your emotions of the past like the Aura Cleansing Elixir or the Anti-Negative Thoughts Elixir. You can also try the Aromatherapy Inhalers. If it's still the same day you that you forget to take one of the formula's you can still take it at a later time.

    If you forget and it's the day after just continue on without it or add an extra day to the cleanse. Taking them out of order doesn't have an effect on your cleanse as long as you're still taking the supplements daily. The schedule can be adjusted according to you personal time, just be sure that the hours in between are the same as listed in the manual. It is significant to follow the regiment exactly.

    Q: Hello, I’ve used your FULL BODY DETOX, and continue to do so several times a year...It's amazing, thank you. I just read your March Newsletter and the "Question of the Month" was about head injuries & looking at your recommendations ( NERVES FORMULA, CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA, etc.), I'd like to know if this is something you would recommend for my brother. He recently had his second stroke about 7 months ago, lives in Dominican Republic, isn't getting the proper care and therapy, due to financial reasons. After the 1st stroke he was doing well, walking with a limp, didn't have use of his right arm, partial use of right leg, was learning to talk again. He progressed a lot. After the 2nd stroke he was bed-ridden, wearing diapers, couldn't swallow he was like a baby again. Now he's saying words, he's walking with a cane (very slowly); he's going to the bathroom on his own. He's slowly progressing. I live in CA & I was in Dominican Republic this past Christmas. It breaks my heart to see my brother this way. He's only 48 yrs old. I'd love to send him your products if they would help & not interferre with any medications he's taking. High Blood Pressure & Heart Disease run in my family. I strongly believe in your products, and at this point my brother needs a miracle. We stay positive. Another brother of mine takes care of him & is very positive. I have faith that he can heal quicker and enjoy life for many more years. So please advise what you'd recommend. Thank you so much for your time. Peace & Blessings


    Our products will greatly help your brother but they will interfere with the medication that will cause more strokes in your brother because all medications are poisons - PERIOD! Herbs will fight against those poisons so as to heal him. Should you choose herbs from Dherbs, I recommend CEREBRAL-VASCULAR FORMULA, CIRCUL-AID FORMULA, VEINS FORMULA, and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA. There is healing for your brother!

    Q: I'm a 38-year-old male who has been suffering with Atrial Fibrillation for 3 years. Up until the age of 35 I never had any real illness that had any caused for concern, and then out of the blue I have a heart related issue. My Doctor has never given me a cause of where this came from and all the research I've done on my own turns up the same. The answers the doctor gave (caffeine, alcohol, and so on) I've never really used any of those things excessively. My eating habits up until that time where not that great and I was about 100lbs over weight. I've lost 85lbs since, and also have giving up all meats. Also I had Cath. Ablation surgery for the A-Fib. It's been 3 months since surgery and I'm now off of the Coumadin they had me taking. I'm not sure if the surgery was a total success, I've not had an attack since New Year’s Day 2008. But I'm still not feeling back to my old self. I've been having some very weird feelings of nausea, tension, constipation, and tiredness, headaches, etc. When I do go to the doctor they tell me that everything looks fine and that I may be a bit stressed and suffering from anxiety. I'm writing to you in hopes that you may be able to guide me to the right path to healing and returning to living somewhat normal life again.

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.


    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at Namaste, Megan

    Q: Hi, I?m 26 years old male. I got genital herpes this summer 2007, the first outbreak was pretty itchy and painful a little, and now I got another small one. I have been reading your article and the power of mind and have been staying as positive as I can and also putting some aloe vera from the original leaf on the outbreak, and it is going away much quicker than the initial outbreak. However I am certain that I can completely get this so called incurable virus out of my system because it doesn?t make any sense to me that it would just lay there forever. Can you further guide me? I have ordered your Full Body Detox and the Anti Viral kit. You are really making a big impact on my life in a positive way and I am grateful to have found you. Just wanted to let you know that the thing I want to do the most is to become the best possible tennis player I can be.
