How to Use Essential Oils
Essential oils can be used for healing the mind and body, as well as being used as ritual aids for spellcraft and magic. Essential oils are powerful – when used on the skin, most essential oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil such as almond oil. A little goes a long way!
Some ways that you can utilise the powers of essential oils are:
- Use the oils in an aroma diffuser to fill your space with the essence of the plant
- Blend with a carrier oil to use on your skin or as an anointing oil
- Inhale oils to increase your concentration (put a few drops in steaming water)
- Put some drops in the bath for a deep spiritual and physical cleansing effect
- Dress your candles in the oil before burning them
Where to Get Astrological Essential Oils
Essential oils can often be found in your local health food shop, and in some pharmacies. You can also buy them online – a good place to look is Amazon, which stocks many quality essential oils, such as this set of 16 essential oils. It’s important to choose essential oils from a high-quality source, especially if you are using them on your skin. Make sure that the oils are labelled as essential oils, not as fragrance oils or perfume oils.
If you’re finding it difficult to choose which oils to work with, you can also buy a pre-made essential oil zodiac blend for your sign, such as the Mystic Moments blends:
