What makes a “sacred body oil”? We can start with essential oils traditionally used in rituals and for purification!
One thing I love about essential oils is that they manage to heal us on multiple levels at once.
Let’s take Frankincense essential oil, for example.
Frankincense is amazing for skin care and respiratory support. It eases inflammation, soothes irritation (like itching or pain), and supports skin to heal itself. It’s great for headaches and muscle tension, too.
But Frankincense also helps soothe us emotionally and mentally. It’s been used throughout history for things like meditation, rituals, contemplation, and sacred body oil and perfume.
Frankincense essential oil supports us body and mind (and heart!)
