3 Sacred Aromas To Open Your Chakras and Cleanse Your Aura

0-166281431-fotolia-80011499-subscription-monthly-m

Whether it’s the smell of soil after a rain shower or freshly cut grass; the enticing aroma of flowers or the misty odor of the sea, there are some fragrances which can suspend us for a moment in time. Sometimes even our imagination takes flight — to our past memories, or sometimes to our favorite place or fantasy.

There are certain aromas that can trigger the release of neurochemicals in the brain like serotonin, helping us heal physically, mentally and spiritually. Aromatherapy works on this same principle.

Since time immemorial, sacred fragrances and essential oils have been used in religious and spiritual sanctuaries to purify the space and connect with the higher self. Aromatic herbs contain vital energy and exceptional vibration, and are key tools to use on our spiritual journey.

By experiencing the relaxing effects of these aromas on our body, mind and spirit, we can begin to access the divine. Add oils to your bath or maybe just soak your feet after a long, stressful day. Get a long, soothing oil massage. Take steam from a bowl of hot water mixed with drops of oils or powdered herb.

You can also use an aromatic lamp or diffuser to receive the calming effects of sacred aromas. Some herbs are even available in the form of incense, and you can make an arc around your body with the smoke, to cleanse the aura. Even the flowers of aromatic herbs are used in spiritual practices.

If applying oil to your body, be sure to do a skin patch test first to check the sensitivity of the oil on your skin. Mostly, oils are used in diluted form. Incense sticks or cones and powdered herbs should be all-natural and contain zero synthetics.

Here are my three favorite sacred aromas to help you on your spiritual journey:

1. Lavender

Lavender is gentle, loving and caring. It is used to gain inner peace and positive energy. It purifies the space and helps in meditation. If you are in need for comfort and looking for clarity during emotional turmoil, lavender is the magic potion. It opens our Crown Chakra as well as aligns it to other chakras.

Hang lavender flowers at your front door or place dried flowers in your spiritual zone for peace, luck and love. Put drops of lavender oil on your temples and the back of your neck to ease headaches. Put two drops on a cotton ball and put it inside your pillow case for a more relaxing, restful sleep. Research shows that lavender fragrance is beneficial in treating insomnia and depression.

2. Jasmine

Jasmine is the holy flower of Kamadeva, the Hindu god of love. It is considered an aphrodisiac and hence, good for nurturing love. It is associated with the Sacral Chakra.

Jasmine fragrance is helpful in creating tranquil atmosphere to meditate in, and also for stimulating Kundalini energy, helping us access a higher consciousness. It is believed that wearing it as perfume or carrying the flower with you attracts love and wealth. Adding few drops to the bath before going to sleep is believed to give you future visions in dreams.

Some research shows that jasmine is also beneficial in reducing depression and helps upsurge the positive emotions. Inhale a few drops of oil in water to clear any respiratory irritations. Put few drops in a diffuser to fill your room with energy that lifts your spirits. Have a cup of jasmine tea for calming your nerves, staying young and reducing cholesterol.

3. Frankincense

Frankincense holds the wisdom of universe. Using it calls upon angelic protection and spiritual enlightenment. It has power to cut cords from the negative past and connect you to your divine self. It keeps you grounded. Burn it while doing pranayama breathing exercises.

It’s a miracle herb. It can help fight cold and respiratory disorders, has anti-aging properties, relieve you of menstrual cramps, reduce pain due to arthritis and much more.

There are hundreds of such magical potions. Use your intuition to help you judge which ones suit you best. Make these herbs a part of your life! Let these sacred aromas heal you and enhance your spiritual experiences by raising your vibrations.

I have been practicing Tibetan Rituals daily since August 15, 2006, for the purposes of balancing my Chakras and I wish to be able to discern how effectively these Tibetan Rituals are in fact balancing my Chakras as well as improving my overall health through the use of your Chakra clearing products. Can I conceivably receive this benefit through using the products? 4. Please make any suggestions that you think would be beneficial to me in my quest for enlightenment. Thanks very much, Peace, Love, Balance and Harmony

    Q: I know you are an herbalist and I have read your articles on relationships, but I really need to discuss an issue with a conscious person like yourself. I have a friend who is a conscious brother, he made it known that he doesn't want to be in a relationship, claims he's to busy, but he is into having a spiritual sexual relationship(releasing energy he says on a spiritual level). My thought is that in order to connect with someone totally on a sexual level they should be a unit to experience this sacred sexual experience he refers to, otherwise to me it seems a very clever why to have sex without the commitment of being in a relationship. I would really appreciate your thoughts.

    A:

    Dudes can be so clever! He sounds like a Taurus! LOL!

    He's using spirituality to justify having sex with you. There's no spirituality with a casual sex partner. This practice is deep and creates serious energetic connections via the chakras. There's no connection without being a unit and having a commitment. My motto is: no sex absent love and commitment (unless both parties agree)! Hope this helps you out!

    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.

    A:

    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: My question to you, Is it beneficial for one to make SPIRITUAL LOVE with ones spouse while detoxing?

    A:

    I engaged in pillow talk which is my norm. It had nothing to do with sex at all, spiritual or otherwise. Just intimate conversation. Whether the sex is meaningless or spiritual, it should not be engaged in while detoxing. But of course folks have free will to do as they please.

    Q: I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your article on HPV. This afternoon, my doctor called to say I tested positive for low-risk HPV. Thankfully, I have become very spiritually grounded in the past few years, and I know the body has the power to heal itself. In a sea of disinformation (i.e. the internet), it is refreshing to read an article that discussed the spiritual and energetic bases to disease, particularly HPV. In my research today, I've come across quite a bit of information about pau d'arco and its healing qualities, particularly for HPV. Do you suggest pau d'arco? If so, is there a preferred method of ingestion?

    A:

    Greetings! Glad you enjoyed the HPV article! In re pau d' arco, I really don't recommend herbs by themselves because they are more consumed with other herbs that enhance them and compliment them. However, it is a good herb. Purple La Pacho and Red La Pacho are the most potent forms of this herb.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: I have questions about the Chakra Elixirs. Can one take all 8 drops of your chakra elixirs, (this include the Love, and Healing Elixirs for the 4th chakra) at once? If not, then what would be the recommended practice, if I wanted to utilize all 8 elixirs? Could I also take the Pineal Elixir along with your recommendation on taking the chakra elixirs?

    A:

    While you could take all the Chakra Elixirs together (and even the Pineal Glad stimulator), we'd recommend that you take them separately so each chakra can have it's necessary time to be tuned up.

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: Thank you once again for your advice and your article on love. I was in so much pain when I emailed you all I could think of was that maybe death would give me peace. As your articles say, heartache, the broken light cord, hurts something terrible in the most literal sense. Your articles give me so much comfort and peace, you are truly blessed. I read everything is Okay as often as I can to remind me to go with the flow of life. Since your first email I have started working with Rose quartz, Rhodocrosite, and Adventurine. I've started practicing Qi Gong and this is helping to put me in tune with who I really am, divine. I cannot say it has been all peaches and cream, the journey up has been bumpy- I have to read and re-read, make the conscious decisions to let go of old patterns. Thank you for your love. Thank you for taking the time to reach back out to a stranger when you did not have to. I am on your site now ready to make my second purchase. There are two 4th Charka elixirs for sale, which one should I purchase? The abundance elixir- is this meant to bring abundance or change my thinking on abundance? I apologize if this question sounds ignorant but I'm slightly confused. One last thing Dherbs.com, you speak of a Three in One modality and advise your reader to get one. What is this and how can I get one? Also, how can I schedule a Charka Consult with you? I know this is a great deal of questions and comments, thank you so much, so very much, for your time.

    A:

    Thank you so much for your e-mail, beloved! Much obliged! Glad to hear Dherbs is helping you on your wonderful journey. Death is never the answer, Beloved. Please read my new article on â€SUICIDEâ€, which explains why (if you haven't already). In re: Charka elixirs I would suggest the FOURTH CHAKRA #2 the one for the Heart as compared to "healing." My friend Julie no longer offers the 3-in-1 sessions, which were so beneficial. However, we still offer charka balancing and can do a reading by phone ($55) if you're interested.

    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

    A:

    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: I think it is interesting that you spend a lot of time pushing your personal opinions and share limited advice. What do you understand about integrity and professionalism? Or even respect for others? I do not see it. If people are looking to you for help why do you spit on their problems? I was researching your site to help a client resolve their addiction to smoking. I have to say I was sadly disappointed to read your article. It is not helpful nor is it informative. In fact it enforces shame and negativity on those who seek help and positive life changes. I would hope you could restructure your article to benefit all. It would be beneficial to check out higher consciousness sites on herbal healing. I wish for you in this moment to find peace and resolve your anger and prejudice that is so apparent in your articles. Love, light and peace.

    A:

    YOUR perception is not MY reality, Love. I am doing me and you do you. Tell you what: you do what I am failing to do or what you feel I am failing to do. This would be more appropriate. Pick up the ball where you deem it dropped. Talk is cheap and actions speak. I have done the actions and am doing them (read the reviews and testimonies on Dherbs.com). It speaks for itself. My new smoking article will reflect where I am presently, but it will still blast the ignorant cigarette smokers. One can't just blame government and the cigarette industry for the actions of the dumb cigarette smoker. Dumb and weak Americans must also foot partial blame, actually most of it, because they had a choice and there was no gun to their head forcing them to smoke. These people were simply weak and stupid and not to mention unconscious. Period! It doesn't sound nice but it's factual and truthful. I don't sugar coat the truth because sugar is a poison! The first article was written 6-7 years ago and that's why it's so brief. Thank you for visiting the #1 website in all-natural herbal products and raw uncompromising information that people all across the world are eating up and just can't get enough of.

    Q: Good morning, I have used several products in the last two months. They include the Full Body Detox, Detox bath drops, Aura cleansing, Mucus buster and the Acid buster. I battle MS and I received the results of the MRI, and it shows that my ventriculers went from 8-9mm to 1.2 cm.( I was told it is atrophy) I believe I will be healed, but I am at a lost of what to do next. I researched it and found that exerising will be good, and eating veggies and fruit (having no alcohol). I am continuing on the Mucus and Acid buster. Do you know what I should do next? By the way my cholesterol went DOWN to 159 from 224 at times 242.

    A:

    Keep doing everything you're doing. Take 3 capsules of Brain Tuner formula 2-3 times per day. Drink 1-2 cups of Brain Tuner per day as well. Also, do not worry! Think positive as you consume the herbs daily and eat a mostly vegan/raw foods diet.
