Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: November 5, 2013 is The Sacred Waters.

THE SACRED WATERS

Water was used by the early Hebrews for cleansing and purifying. Priests sanctify their hands and feet with water poured from a golden flask before going to the altar or performing actions of spiritual significance. Baptism is a Christian sacrament of spiritual rebirth by which the recipient is cleansed of original sin through the symbolic application of water; by immersion, pouring, or sprinkling.
Bathing has two meanings from a spiritual point of view. It can denote cleansing before taking part in religious observance, or denote a spiritual transformation, as in baptism.
Immersion in water induces a state of relaxation that quite often leads to moments of inspiration, spiritual or otherwise. Water is an incredible substance; it has the ability to replicate and retain in a liquid molecular memory anything it may have only fleetingly been in contact with, and it can be affected by thought forms projected into it.
When creating your own sacred waters, run the warm bathwater, then add the essential oil. Close the bathroom door to ensure the aroma molecules remain in the room. The essential oils are inhaled with the steam and absorbed through the skin by osmosis. Lie in the bathwater for at least ten minutes to allow the entire body benefit from the impact of the precious aroma.
Light some candles and listen to gentle music, if you prefer. Feel the stress leaving your body and the inner core of spirituality expanding.
You can use one essential oil or a blend of two to three essential oils. I, personally, prefer a blend with a Jojoba Carrier Oil because it is very skin conditioning.
Following are some recipes I like for spiritual bathing.

Spiritual Cleansing Recipe I
Blend together:
1/8 cup of Jojoba, or your choice, Carrier Oil
6 drops Neroli Essential Oil
5 drops Petitgrain Essential Oil
4 drops Orange Essential Oil
Swirl gently until the oils are thoroughly mixed together.

I use 10 to 15 drops in my bath. If that seems too much for you, add less drops (7 to 8).

Spiritual Cleansing Recipe II
Blend together:
1/8 cup of Jojoba, or your choice, Carrier Oil
7 drops Lavender Essential Oil
5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
3 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Swirl gently until the oils are thoroughly mixed together.

    1. Welcome to the world of Aromatherapy. There is so much that you can use essential oils for. I’m glad your seeing benefits already.
      I’m working on Spirituality right now, but you are welcome to look back as some of my earlier posts; some of them have in-depth information on an oil.
