For the senses as a complement to the Reiki healing energy I use Essential oils. These oils are highly concentrated fragrant plant extracts usually derived by steam distillation of stems, flowers, leaves, roots, resin, seeds, bark and wood. Fruits and herbs are also used in Essential oils and have been used for centuries all over the world.
Because Essential oils are sweet smelling many people suppose their value is essentially one of charm and fragrance, but this is a mistake. Modern scientific research has proven that Essential oils are potent with remarkable medicinal properties. These substances are very complex in their molecular structure and very powerful. Unlike chemical drugs, Essential oils do no remain in the body. They leave no toxins behind. Essential oils make much more sense as air fresheners than commercial products as they cleanse the air by altering the structure of the molecules creating the fragrant, rather than masking the unwanted odors.
In my private hands on sessions I use a combination of Essential oils that are heated to allow the concentrated fragrances to emerge even greater and reeds that are soaked in oils for a gentle light lingering fragrance. I also use complementary incense and Reiki charged candles that are also dressed in the same Essential oils. To further add to the ambiance, I add a delicious accompaniment of soothing heavenly music, soft lighting and a Himalayan therapeutic Reiki charged salt lamp that helps in healing, harmonizing and purifying the environment.
