I've been getting a lot of emails about smudging---how to, why should I, when should I, etc...--so I made a video to answer all the questions here. Let me know what you think!
The following list of oils are my go-to favorites for purification, smokeless smudging and psychic protection. Use them singly or blended to create your own high vibrational energy spray!
Basil is excellent for those wishing to enhance their psychic abilities; not only does it open the 3rd eye and promote clairvoyance, but it is highly protective, having long been used in banishing and exorcisms. Emapths can also wear this oil to feel protection when in crowds.
Black Pepper gives any neutralizing blend an added boost of strength and power. To increase courage, rid self of fear and all subsequent lower vibrational emotions, and protect against energy vampires, use this oil alone or in combination with any of the others on this list.
Cedarwood is used to heal from psychic attacks, purification of space and spiritual and emotional healing. This oil also increases higher vibrational frequencies, clearing out any stagnation
Cypress oil has been used in religious practices for purification and blessing. It has an energetic vibes of both the physical and spiritual worlds and can assist newly departed souls in crossing over from this reality to the next. It is also an oil of harmony; using it instantly neutralizes discordant energies, grounds you and raises the vibration of your surroundings. Emotionally, it helps to soothe pain from loss and is ideal for when you are going through difficult life transitions.
Frankincense and myrhh: ancient priests would burn these two resins together to purify and bless temples. The oils have the power to invoke a deep meditative state and work on the energetic body to soothe lower vibrational emotions like anger, anxiety and stress. Frankincense is said to release high vibrations that drive out all discordant energies. It binds with the Higher Self and acts as a protective shield in one’s spiritual journey, making it ideal for astral travel or shamanic journey work.
Juniper clears emotional blocks and purifies space. It is considered a sacred herb by the First Nations and made into smudge bundles. Cleanse all entryways (doors and windows) with juniper spray to negate discordant vibrations and transform them into harmonious frequencies.
Lavender clears and uplifts one out of lower level frequencies. It has been used in love potions and spells because it brings such comfort and warmth. Purifies and balances energies.
Palo Santo – Also known as Holy wood, it has been said that the spirits of the sacred Palo Santo trees are carried in the essential oil, which is part of its potency. Palo Santo oil is grounding and helps gently dispel anger, fear and recklessness. It is used during meditation for staying connected to Spirit.
Peppermint is another powerful oil to use against psychic vampires, as it clears tension and discordant vibes.
Rose oil has the highest vibrational frequency of 320 mhz. It is associated with the Queen of Heaven, all of the Angels, and is said to be perfection in and of itself. “For comparison, fresh produce has a frequency up to 15 MHz, dry herbs from 12 to 22 MHz, and fresh herbs from 20 to 27 MHz. Processed and canned foods have no measurable frequency whatsoever.”**
And, of course, Sage! Another sacred herb of the First Nations, makes a beautiful neutralizer of discordant vibes. Highly protective, sage spray is ideal as a repellent for psychic vampires.
