The History of essential oils and crystals for healing
Crystals or gemstones have been mentioned in healing since 4500 to 2000 B.C. by the Ancient Sumerians when they used them in their magical formulas. Crystal healing is linked to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, or Ancient Rome. The Ancient Egyptians mined crystals and gemstones for jewelry and used them for health and protection, and so did other cultures around the world.
Essential oils and incense, on the other hand, are intertwined with herbalism and herbal medicine. Certain herbs and plants were seen as magical and to have healing properties. These plants were seen to have an effect on life-threatening diseases and alignment issues. When burned or distilled for oil, with Frankincense, its healing properties were heavily emphasized.
Why combine Crystals and Essential oils for healing?
Aromatherapy is a healing treatment that uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.
The sense of smell is directly connected to your memory area. This means that a familiar scent can awaken a memory. It also directly affects the brain's emotional area, which means that specific scents can make you relax or ease your mood or pain.
Some scents like lavender are known to reduce anxiety and increase relaxation, and citrus notes like lemon, orange, and grapefruit, can help you feel energized and refreshed. Floral scents are also said to bring a delicate note of calm and serenity, while wood notes like sandalwood, cedarwood, and vetiver are used to help people feel grounded and balanced.
For crystals, each stone vibrates at a frequency, which may be the energy you need or feel comforted by. Note that your intuition and the natural attraction of stones will help you find just the right one, even without great knowledge of crystals and healing stones.
When crystals or gemstones are combined with essential oils and incense, it packs a powerful healing punch that affects your emotions and your physical and mental well-being, providing a complete healing process.
