5 Aromatherapy Recipes for the Overloaded Empath


overloaded empath

An empath is someone who deeply feels the energies and emotions of others when out in the world.

The empaths among us, those who do magic, energy healing, Reiki, massage, and aromatherapy all share one thing in common – we interact on a deep subconscious and vibrational level with the energy of others on a regular basis.

We interact deeply with all those around us all day long, and like me, many of you are highly sensitive to this. It can be a challenge to do your work in the world without taking on the emotions you encounter. It is spiritually, emotionally, and even physically taxing to be a lightworker holding space or energy for so many in need. There are a great number of people we wish to heal or unburden. But, in turn, the burden we empaths bear can become too great. We must shield ourselves in order to effectively do the work we are called to.

What does it mean to be an empath?

Empaths connect on a whole other level, becoming exposed to many emotions, experiences, and expectations of those whom we interact with. Sometimes it’s not our clients – it’s just the woman next to us in line at the grocery store — whose energy is so strong it’s merging with ours, in positive or negative ways. Or family members whose energy is draining us because of illness, conflict, or other challenges. Or it might even be our own stuff, baggage we’re carrying that, on a soul level, we long to leave behind. Scent is so powerful because it is an area where we can work major magic.

Don’t minimize your work. It takes strength, courage, and energetic boundaries, as an empath, not to get weighed down by the emotions of others. It’s often a full-time job, especially in today’s chaotic and hectic world.

This is why I’ve decided to offer you five aromatherapy recipes for overloaded empaths. Many of you are already enrolled in my AroMagic course where we are exploring the wonderful world of herb and oils, and if you’re not that’s okay too! These five recipes for overloaded empaths are for anyone to benefit from.

The recipes

First, when creating aromatherapy blends to use on your skin, you always want to dilute the essential oils in a carrier oil or unscented lotion. This can be coconut oil, jojoba, sesame, or any other gentle oil you prefer. As always, do your research and check for your own skin sensitivities and allergies. Mix each oil with 1oz of carrier oil. You can multiply recipe as needed.
