Stages of Healing With Essential Oils

Like everything in nature, essential oils are intuitive. Used properly, they guide the whole body through a five-step healing process. Each step lays a foundation for the next level of healing.

  1. Essential oils heal on a physical level. Some are 40-60 times more potent than herbs. They possess a combination of properties that are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-spasmodic, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, etc. They help the body ward off harmful micro-organisms, often relieving pain and discomfort in the process.

  2. Once the body is relieved of physical symptoms, it can shift focus to healing on an emotional level. As the physical body heals, the vibration increases. when this occurs, frequency gets higher and higher and it becomes more difficult for low-vibrating energy like grief, anger, fear and low self-esteem to remain. During this stage, unwanted energy moves to the surface and cycles out to the universe where it is purified and re-purposed for positive use.

  3. Essential oils promote emotional healing by getting to the root ails us. Once the cause of an issue is revealed at its root, we are able to release false beliefs that have held us hostage. This is the third, and probably most difficult, stage of healing with essential oils. Releasing limiting beliefs is how we clear away stagnant, unwanted energy to make room for positive energy flow.

  4. When space is cleared for positive energy to flow freely, we open to receive messages from higher consciousness/spirit/the universe. We begin to get very clear about what is best and right for our own personal journey in this life. This increased spiritual connection also acts a preventive --- turning us away from destructive and unloving choices.

  5. When we communicate openly, clearly and consistently with spirit, our life's purpose becomes evident. Answers to the big questions are revealed and we develop the time, energy and skills to step into the spotlight that shines just for us.

Ancestral Alchemy Chakra Elixirs

Grief is a creative energy. As we release earthbound attachments to the dearly departed, we create space for something new to enter our lives. When someone I love transitions and expands out into the ether, I am often pushed to create something meaningful that furthers the fulfillment of my life purpose as a healer. Death in the flesh is met with opportunities for new beginnings ... on earth and in the Spirit realm. 

We lost my BFF's father last week and, In honor of the soul that is Willie Asberry, an important male figure in my life, I was guided to develop seven Reiki-empowered chakra healing elixirs for clearing and balancing the seven primary in-body chakras.

Willie's energy was calm, patient, snarky and compassionate. He was a heart-centered individual whose sensitivities to the harshness of this world were evident in his life choices. As an individual who lacks a certain kind of patience, I know it is through him that I give birth to this phenomenal line of healing oils.

The mere thought of sitting before dozens of bottles and channeling laser focused energy to build a product one drop at a time is enough to send me screaming for the hills. Yet, with Mr. Asberry's help, I did exactly that. I was tired beyond all reason and trying to sleep when Spirit whispered, "you have to create a line of oils." I argued, "I'm tired and I'm not really interested in that tedious process.." The urging grew louder and more combative until I got out of bed, pulled out the oils, prepped the bottles and began blending drop-by-drop-by-drop.

I laughed, cried, rocked and hummed my way through 26 hours to breathe life into Ancestral Alchemy chakra healing elixirs. It was exhausting and exhilarating! I know it is no coincidence that 26 hours is exactly the amount of time I spent in labor with my only child; and these oils, like he, are precious and rare. Thank you, Willie Asberry, for this parting gift.

The healing energy of Ancestral Alchemy chakra healing elixirs can be released by applying directly to the specified chakra, inhaled from the palms of the hands, applied to the soles of the feet or diffused. 

TREE root chakra elixir is a grounding and earthing blend. In prehistoric times man was in constant connection with the earth; we walked barefoot from place-to-place and slept on the ground in caves. Later, farming became a large part of our existence, so we worked with Mother Earth daily, tilling, planting and harvesting crops. Today, we live and work indoors and wear rubber soled shoes to cover our feet. We use locomotives to travel from place to place and farming tasks are largely automated. We are disconnected from our original nurturer and provider, Mother Earth. Journey back to place of oneness with earth with help from TREE chakra healing elixir. TREE contains pure, therapeutic grade essential oils of spruce, ho wood, frankincense, blue tansy, blue chamomile, bergamot, juniper berry, myrrh, arbor vitae, nootka tree, thyme and citronella in an almond oil base.
