Witchy Tip of the Week: Essential Oils & Environment

Updated: Oct 11, 2022

I love essential oils. Mixing the different oils and making potions to make my house smell amazing is one of my favorite ways to start the day. Candles are lovely but it just hits different when I know exactly what I am putting in, how much, and knowing what benefits each oil carries and how it will enhance my day & environment.


Now what a lot of people don't realize is that essential oils do a lot more than just smell nice. They also have physical, mental & emotional impact on the body. Certain oils can burn your skin in the sun, certain oils can heal a burn from the sun. Certain oils can heal a wound and that same oil can be used in a bath to ground the body back to alignment. Essential Oils are nature in a bottle, you just have to pay attention to what you are actually using and put the intention behind it.


Here are just 3 of the most commonly used oils:


Lavendar- one of the most common and widely used oils is Lavendar. This flower is known for bringing in peace, calm, & soothing vibes while also being very grounding. It's a great energetic cleanser & can also be used for purifying & consecrating a space for mediation & spirit work. Physical wise, lavender has properties that can aid in respiratory ailments, muscles aches, and actually can heal burns! It is my go-to for sunburn because you don't have to dilute the oil before it goes on your skin. It is also great for banishing evil; I prefer to use Lavendar and Rosemary for cleansing a space.


Rosemary- second on my favorites list is Rosemary. To me, this is the real Swiss Army knife of herbs and flowers because you can substitute it for anything in a spell and it will take on the intention of the herb as long as you put the energy behind it. Beyond the fact its super versatile, Rosemary will also give you confidence & bring in luck. It is amazing for mental clarity & helping with quick thinking. Emotion wise, it will bring in feelings of happiness, hope & help aid with your anxieties & worries.


Lemon- Next up is our citrusy friend Lemon. Lemon is great for the mood. It is super uplifting, bringing in happiness & love. A great oil to attract friends & bring in better people in your life. Lemon is also great for spell work. It helps bring in & all citrus oils are super charged so it will add more pow to your spell more and make it more efficient. Physically it is great for cleaning! Citrus oil is great for stick stuff that just won't peel off! Beware of getting it on plastic though, the super concentrated oils will erode plastic if left on it for too long.


That is just the beginning! There are hundreds of oils on the market, each one with their own unique qualities. The combinations are endless & you can create amazing works for the mind, body & soul! Diffuse the oils, make a room spray, put them right on you, make a lotion or balm. So much potential & adding intention behind it makes it, MAGIC!


So, give it a whirl! Make your environment smell & feel better😊


Until next time,

xoxo
