Lemon and Basil Essential oil

Lemons

I will be teaching my Introduction to Traditional Chinese
Medicine
course in August and I was looking through the notes to make a few
small changes.

When I was originally writing these notes a friend
encouraged me to write an energetic profile, from my perspective, for each
essential oil.

I am now vaporising Basil and Lemon and I share with you my energetic connection to these beautiful
oils!

The energetic properties of Basil:

  • Basil’s effect on the nervous system is quick and
    immediate.
  • It stimulates the mind and relieves mental fatigue.
  • It clears away the “fog” of indecision, which can appear due
    to overwork and exhaustion.
  • Its sweet smell awakens feelings of joy and dispels
    depression.

The energetic properties of Lemon:

  • Lemon essential oil helps you to find your zest for life and
    when you are vulnerable it helps protect your outer shell – your skin
  • Its wonderful sharp, clear smell helps to “detox” the
    mind.
  • It brings clarity of thought and helps disperse
    confusion.
  • It is uplifting.
  • It restores belief in oneself.

To vaporise these 2 oils:

  • Add 4 drops of Lemon essential oil and 2 drops of Basil to
    your burner
  • Add the boiling water
  • Light the candle
  • And enjoy
