So what do essential oils and crystals have in common? Well, they’re both made from the earth and often used for emotional and spiritual balance — crystals are, of course, naturally-occurring minerals found all over the globe, while essential oils are distilled directly from plants, trees, and flowers.
Using essential oils for healing is increasingly popular, as these potent plant essences are touted for their physical and emotional benefits, and used in various forms to support the body systems (they can be applied topically, diffused in water, and sometimes even ingested). Similarly, crystals are revered for their purported healing benefits (and, yes, probably also because they’re pretty to look at), and cultures around the globe have used crystals for healing for thousands of years.
Just like yoga and meditation work on the same line, healing crystals and aromatherapy work together to enhance energy and increase vibration. Paired correctly, they can also enhance or amplify each other’s potent ability or help you reach your goal in a better way. If you are a beginner, you can try experimenting with the oils and the crystals and see what works for you, or you could seek help from a healer to align your energies and keep the stress away.
Oils, Crystals and Vibrational Frequency
It is important to know that everything is energy. Everything in our existence is part of an interconnected web of electromagnetic vibrational frequencies. People, plants, tables, animals, rocks, are all made up of electromagnetic vibrational frequencies.
Our frequency can change due to environmental and physiological factors. Trapped emotions stored in our organs, muscles and tissues as pockets of electromagnetic energy also have a negative influence on our well-being. Disharmony and imbalance in the body’s energy field shows up long before it becomes a physical problem.
We can influence our energetic frequency by what we come into contact with, eat, think, listen to, etc. Using tools such as crystals and essential oils can help to raise our vibration. Each have a different vibrational frequency and will interact differently within the body and harmonize with different cells and body systems.
For example, if you chose Amethyst as your crystal and after researching, feel you need it for confidence, then look to your oils reference guide and choose an oil(s) you would use for confidence and allow them both to help raise your vibration.
Ancient cultures believe that the body has a natural tendency towards wellness and if you listen to the body will instinctively know what is good for you. Being attracted to a particular crystal or oil can mean it has properties that resonate with your needs.
