How to Use Essential Oils with Reiki
Why incorporate essential oils into your Reiki practice?
One of the amazing things about Reiki is that it although it can stand on its own, it works seamlessly with other modalities, like aromatherapy. There are over 17,000 medical studies to date on the effectiveness of essential oils – let’s make the most of them!
Anchoring a place of healing
You already know how clients love the way they feel during and after their Reiki sessions. But essential oils can help enhance that experience. Ask your client if you can use oil during your session to help them to anchor their good feelings. Whenever they smell that oil again, it can take them back to that place of healing!
Accessing deeper levels of awareness
Perhaps you want to help your client access a deeper level of awareness. You can use Frankincense and Sandalwood, which have been used for centuries as a part of meditation and spiritual practices. The parts of your brain that sense smell are located within your emotional brain. This means that essential oils can have a significant impact on memories and emotions, and take your sessions to a deeper place.
Working on a physical level
We love that Reiki works on a lasting energetic level first which then filters through the physical level. You can address physical imbalances immediately with essential oils while Reiki is working at the energetic level.
Add a product to your service based business
Would you like to earn an income during the time you’re not performing Reiki sessions? Adding essential oils to your business can be a way to diversify your income with a residual income stream. With essential oils, your business can generate income even while you are on vacation or asleep!
How can you incorporate essential oils into YOUR Reiki practice? There are many ways!
- diffuse an essential oil during a session for yourself or your client (with client’s permission and confirmation that there are no contraindications).
- create an essential oil wellness plan for your clients (including specific oils and how they will be used each day)
- teach classes about essential oils and their many benefits
- add a drop of essential oil to hand lotion for your hands before you perform your session (with client’s permission)
Essential oils can be an essential part of your life and your Reiki practice. But when you choose to use them, it’s important to know how they work and how to use them safely.
