Following on from my FB post yesterday I introduced you to the amazing range of Alchemical oils from Sacred Self. I use Sacred Self oils daily in my self-love routine as well as with my clients in healing sessions.
What are the oils made of?
Every Sacred Self oil is the intuitive baby of creator & director Michelle McGrath. The oils are blended from vibrational essences of the highest-grade organic quality with a carrier base of jojoba or camellia oil. Making them 100% safe to use directly onto the skin. (Please note these oils should not be ingested or diffused) It doesn’t stop there! Each blend is infused with love, gem & flower essences, colour rays sacred symbols, mantras & sound. This combination makes for the highest of vibrations. For me they are a healing session in a bottle.

How do essential oils work?
Essential oils are powerful healers in themselves. Not only do they work to assist healing the physical body with many being anti-septic, anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory such as Jasmine or Sandalwood.
Once the physical body has been healed one can start to peel away the layers of the emotional body. Essential oils can play a part here in preparing the foundations for healing on a deeper level to begin.
I love the example from Emotions & Essential Oils by Enlighten Alternative Healing, LLC;
In gardening, it is a common experience to pull the weed while leaving the roots. We can add water to the soil, which allows the entire weed to be removed. Similarly, essential oils prepare our emotional soil so that weeds may be removed with greater ease. (Enlighten, 2013, page 9)
However like with all healing modalities ‘you’ need to do the work by taking action & responsibility. Simply applying an oil & thinking ‘I’m fixed’ won’t fix you. You need to pull your weeds or they will grow back.
Allow me to share how I use Scared Self oils in my self-healing routine.
When I was struggling with a communication issue & not freely following my hearts guidance by ‘biting my tongue’ & not speaking my truth my throat Chakra become blocked. In this instance I was really suppressing emotion in this area so the physical symptoms of a sore throat started to appear*. This indicated to me there was work to be done from within. Time to tune into my Sacred Self collection.
Sacred Self-oils each have their own unique intent, affirmation & vibration. For the above situation I intuitively selected ‘Truth’ to work with. It has the affirmation “I express my truth with love.” A beautiful zingy bled of German chamomile, peppermint & lemon myrtle that I applied directly to my throat & heart Chakras with the intent of connecting the two together. With some oil still on my hands I then swept my whole aura from top to bottom. A meditation session was next to fully integrate the process & assist in releasing any stagnant energy that may have been stopping me from speaking from my heart. This created the space for the energy run through & release.
Just like the law of nature says there has to be an equal & opposite for everything. What goes up must come down. With healing you must release that which is no longer serving you, the negative emotion, to make room for the good positive emotion to come through. It’s not always a comfortable process to go through. The more heavy emotions build up the longer & harder the process. Always best to keep on top of it by recognising when there is work to be done & taking the necessary steps.
How do I incorporate Sacred Self oils into my Reiki sessions?
I use my intuition to guide me as to which Scared Self oil would best serve the clients needs. If a particular Chakra is not open at the start of the session, say the heart, I will apply a few drops of Self-love to my hands & work it through the client’s etheric body.
Sometimes during a session I will receive Clairaudient messages with certain essences such as ‘geranium & sweet orange’. In this case I was working with the Sacral Chakra & I knew I was being guided to use Grace which is really great for assisting the balance female hormones.
Another example I simply hear the name of the oil or I’m drawn to just select one from the shelf. I once went to pick up an oil & my hand went straight to a totally different one! (The one that was needed more)
At the end of the session I match up the messages I received intuitively with an oil or oils & offer to them client to use if they wish. Only once has a client has turned their nose up at an oil. Just a bit of positive resistance, as they really needed that one the most. Funnily enough it was ‘Surrender.’ Once they ‘surrendered’ to the fact it may assist them & rubbed some on their heart I saw them physically relax. “It’s not so bad on is it?” they replied. 😉
I hope you have found this post useful & informed you a little of the great way nature can help us heal through vibrational essences. Also I just love introducing you all to local businesses with beautiful products that are fully aligned with my beliefs & values.
