Massage is fundamental to the practice of aromatherapy. Select the most appropriate chakra blend and add approximately 5 drops to every 10mL of carrier oil. Patricia Davis recommends that you omit any deep strokes and concentrate on light effleurage and long sweeping strokes. Let your hands come to rest on any area of the body that feels as if it needs special healing. You should also pay particular attention to extremities: hands, feet and head, drawing off any negative energy present. Don’t forget to give your hands a brisk shake each time you do so. At the end of the massage include some strokes that do not touch the surface of the body – hold your hands just above your friend’s body and move them slowly, sensing any areas that are cold, hot, blocked or troubled in any way. Always finish with some long, sweeping strokes from below the feet to above the head, just above the body. End by holding your friend’s feet for a minute or more, to ground their energy and allow a gentle return to the everyday reality.
You should create the appropriate ambiance for your bath. Choose a quiet time, light a candle, keep the lights dim and add three to five drops of the appropriate chakra blend to a tablespoon of dispersing bath oil, then add this to the batch ensuring it is mixed in well. Enter the bath and lie still for 15 to 20 minutes. The time should not be spent for washing, if you need to clean, do this before you get into your bath. Ritual baths can be used to “clear” after a bad experience, or to clear the aura after being in a crowded place, where you may be in proximity to energies you would not welcome into your space.
This means placing a drop of the chakra blend directly on the body. This is a very ancient practice, commonly used in many religions and spiritual traditions. Usually the oils are applied to areas of the body that hold some symbolic significance, such as the head, the chest, hands or feet and to the areas that correspond to the chakras. We typically recommend diluting essential oils with a base oil prior to applying to the body. Add 5 drops to every 10ml of pure vegetable oil to use as a massage/annointing oil.
Simply inhaling the chakra blend from the bottle is one of the most effective ways of changing our state of awareness. Sniffing the oil direct from the bottle can be overpowering, so you may just add a drop to a tissue or handkerchief. Inhaling is the best way to assist meditation, visualisation and strengthening affirmations. Inhale the blend before the visualisation, meditation or affirmation and inhale deeply again at the end to anchor the experience.
Crystals and Gemstones
According to Patricia Davis, crystals will enhance the action of the essential oils that you are using. The quartz crystals and gemstones can be used for the purpose of healing, energising and gaining access to higher dimensions of consciousness. Davis says that crystals will enhance essential oils by amplifying the aroma. She says that just one drop of an essential oil on a crystal will perfume the entire room. Coloured crystals and gemstones are attuned to a narrower range of vibrations that corresponds to their colour. They can be used to influence chakra energy and are selected according to their colour correspondence with the chakra. Clear quartz crystal can be used with any chakra blend and can resonate with any of the chakras. You may simply carry the gemstone or crystal with you or the appropriate crystal can be placed around the chakra as a way of balancing the chakra.
