Spiritual Healing - 7 Modern Ways of Anointing the Body With Essential Oils For Healing

Are you looking for spiritual health? Here is a unique way that many have found helpful: anointing yourself with essential oils on a daily basis.  Using essential oils will help to open you to the possibility of receiving God's favor-God's healing grace in your life.  This kind of anointing is more than just putting oils into your bath water and allowing the aroma to release your negativity and open you to unconditional love. It is more than diffusing an essential oil into the room to create a sacred healing environment. And it is more than burning incense to lift up your spirit to the high places. Sacred fragrances are an honoring of the gift of God present in your daily life. God has blessed the earth with all kinds of plants for your use. When you take the very essence of the plants, the essential oils, and breathe them, rub them on your body or take them within,  you are accepting the gift of blessing from God.  It is through this kind of anointing that  is a reminder that God has placed a mark upon your heart.

Today those on a spiritual path recognize the healing properties of oil and create their own spiritual rituals for themselves and their families, anointing their bodies with these healing substances.   

Some Modern Ways of Anointing

  1. Anoint the energy centers like the brow or throat or heart as you call upon God to bless yourself or someone else with health and well-being. Some wonderful fragrances include balsam, neroli, frankincense or blends like Joy, Harmony and Abundance.
  2. Anoint and clear your meditation space and your healing space with oils.  Any of the tree oils are good for this but especially balsam, sandalwood, and frankincense. Also blends like Awaken, Inspiration and Grounding.
  3. For massage therapists, incorporate the use of essential oils in massaging the body.  Relaxing oils would be helpful like lavender, Roman Chamomile or blends like Peace and Calming.
  4. Anoint the linens, table and room before a healing session begins. One word of caution-make sure you are not using an oil that stains.
  5. Anoint the client's body, blessing and respecting the sacredness of the person. I particularly like to use blends here. Harmony, Valor, Joy or White Angelica.
  6. Diffuse a healing oil to cleanse and anoint the client's aura. Use light fragrances like lemon, orange, grapefruit, or bergamot.
  7. Anoint bath water. Are you in need of relaxation ro energy? Lavender, Roman Chamomile, or neroli might be just what you need. If its energyzing that you need, go for pine, rosemary, or juniper.
