Reiki is an amazingly effective natural way to improve your health both physically and mentally. One of the best ways to complement Reiki practice is with essential oils. Reiki works on the energy centers of your body such as the chakras, meridian channels, and the aura surrounding our body.
If you want to find out more about what Reiki is and how to use aromatherapy in Reiki healing click here to read our previous blog post on Reiki.
Essential oils through aromatherapy are a standalone effective practice in themselves, combining both can be a powerful and out of this world experience. When we absorb different smells, they take an immediate effect, our noses have evolved through millions of years of evolution to warn us or indicate to us if something is safe.
When we smell something and it makes us keep away, that repelling reaction is no accident, it's nature's way of keeping us safe. When we smell something that makes us feel sick or repels us, the chances are it's toxic and if ingested could make us ill, so our body reacts in a physical way by making us keep away.
The body also knows when a smell is pleasant this creates endorphins that make us feel good, so when we smell something nice like Lavender it hits our sensory glands activating the limbic system informing it that this is safe and pleasurable, which in turn gives us a physical reaction of serenity and relaxation.
It's easy to forget and just think a smell is a smell, for no reason. Well, there is a reason it creates an emotional sensation to cause a physical reaction.
