So, now you are sitting there looking at the title and wondering what the heck "Paranormal aromatherapy" is. You have probably heard of aromatherapy and you have undoubtedly heard the word paranormal. You may even have an inkling of what smudging is … but that is just the beginning.
Different plants and herb have different properties and learning how to use those properties to your best advantage can make your life easier. To that end, let's look at what aromatherapy is and how it can best be applied to paranormal uses.
The medical dictionary at thefreedictionary.com defines aromatherapy as "the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being." Yet the aromatheraputic properties do not stop there. Some plants promote things of a more paranormal nature than the physical or psychological.
Often houses, apartments, and even cars can carry the negative residual energy of those who previously owned and occupied that space. Negative energy is just a fact of life that occasionally needs to be cleansed, much like the lint trap in your clothes dryer. If you allow the negative energy to sit and build up, it could start a fire.
Maybe not literally, but figuratively, your life and everything in it will be infected by the negative energy that is allowed to accumulate. Insidious negative energy eventually creates an imbalance and even disease. Chronic stress and the anxiety, irritability, depression, and headaches associated with it will become a more regular part of your life if you do not clear it of that negativity. Worst of all, the continuous negative vibration can attract more negativity and even demonic entities.
For centuries, those in the know have been using the power held within the plants that surround us all to affect the world around them, clearing that negative energy before it becomes toxic. From ancient China and India to the native peoples of the Americas, the aromatic properties of plants have been understood and employed to the benefit of their users.
Paranormal Aromatherapy benefits can be found using the aromatic properties of plants in their natural state, dried, and smudging an area with them. Smudging is a form of paranormal aromatherapy that is used to clear an area of negative energy. It involves the burning of sage and spreading the aromatic smoke of that herb throughout the area in need of cleansing.
Sage, however, is not the only plant with protective and cleansing paranormal properties. It is not the only, nor often the best, method for cleansing. Burning is also only one method of delivery for the aromatherapy properties of herbs and other plants.
In recent years, aromatherapy has been brought into the mainstream through multi-level marketing companies such as Young Living, doTerra, and BeYoung. These companies focus on the healing properties of certain essential oils and their aromatherapy uses.
Essential oils are exactly what they sound like, the essence of these various natural sources distilled down into a useful oil form. These oils have a myriad of delivery methods. Used in their purest form, these oils can be diffused into the air around you via one or several of the special diffusers that have become popular, from simple Terra Cotta discs to full room diffusers.
But what should you put in those diffusors to rid an area of unwanted or malignant energy and spirits? We are so glad that you asked.Beyond Sage…
