Aromatherapy Oils & Incense

Incense comes in mainly two forms, oils and sticks. Oils can be used either to anoint various parts of the body or burnt to give of an aroma, normally in a specially made oil burner. The oil is normally mixed with water and a candle placed underneath to heat it up. Incense sticks are coated with a scented powder that when lit gives off an aroma.

The most common type of oil that is used is camphor oil, it is normally rubbed under the nose to clear a cold and help you to breathe more easily. When I first started to develop I use to rub "Lavender Oil" on my forehead this helped to protect me and aid my meditating. Not only can oils help with psychic/spiritual development, but also aid in healing physicals ailments, although you should always seek medical advise for anything that you're not sure about.


Always read the label first before you rub any oil on your body and try to avoid the cheaper oils as they can cause allergies. Incense sticks should be avoided if you suffer from asthma or any chest infection, especially the cheaper ones.
