Crystals & Essential Oils

Every now and then Victoria More (YogiMami.com) shares her wisdom with us through Oil Revolution Designs, one of the teams who designs our graphics. Today is one of those day! Thanks to both for this opportunity to share with you about crystals and essential oils.

Here at The Essential Creative, we have a community of all backgrounds, beliefs, and lifestyles. As such, if this isn’t your thing, click on through and we will see you another time. As a Christian, I believe that God is my source of strength and all things. I believe He created the universe and all that is within it. My youngest daughter and I have long collected crystals and enjoy the beauty they share with us in our home. I am guilty of keeping Jade on my desk and in the corner of my room to ensure money flows freely in and out of my life! we believe in energetic exchanges and live our lives with God at the center while being aware of the energy and flow around us. We call it the Holy Spirit and the Soul, but it’s similar to what’s discussed below.

I am comfortable sharing some of these beliefs that border on my own or even stretch me because I know many of you here enjoy reading these and find them helpful. You can visit YogaMami.com for more information, as she lives and breathes this information. This is me sharing a small part of it with you as she has educated us. I enjoy reading her blog and teaching because it helps me see how others think as well as learn more about the world around me and how vibrations and awareness of energetic flow can help us maintain relationships and balance. While I attribute it to a different source, I think we can all learn from it.

Introduction

How Crystals and Essential Oils Work Together

So what do crystals and essential oils have in common? Well, they’re both made from earth’s natural resources and often used for healing purposes — 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 wildly popular, as these potent plant essences are touted for their physical and emotional benefits, and used in various forms for different types of ailments (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 the energy levels. 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.

There are different ways you can use essential oils and crystals together to raise your frequency. Here are 3 different recommendations for how you can use them: 

  1. Add oil to a diffuser or on your wrists during meditation while holding the crystal of your choice.
  2. Mix your essential blend as usual, adding the essential oils and carrier oil directly into the bottle with crystals chips. They also have roll-on bottles with crystal roller tops.

Notes from Our Home

Here are a few ways we display our crystals throughout our rooms.

We hope you enjoyed today’s posts. I always learn alot from these posts about other thoughts and about things we enjoy in our home from another viewpoint. In this case, we have been using essential oils since 2014 with Young Living and before that for a few years. We have collected crystals since my youngest could walk (a few rocks even!). Today, we learned how we can put them together!
