Oils of the month - Lime, Mandarin and Grapefruit
A slightly different take on essential oils this month; I have been working with a friend who offers meditation focused on the Archangels using essential oils that enhance the qualities held by each Archangel. So this month we are working with Archangel Jophiel who brings illumination and joy, and helps us to see beauty in all aspects of our lives. The oils closely associated with Jophiel are Lime, Mandarin and Grapefruit.
Lime has an energising, fresh and cheerful aroma. It is well known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind. It is also said to be effective in cleansing the aura as it creates an awakening vibration.
Of all the citrus oils, Mandarin is the sweetest and tends to be the most calming. It is considered very uplifting and creates joy and a sense of contentment. Thought to enhance feelings of happiness the oil allows the joys and freedom of childhood to re-emerge.
Grapefruit awakens our souls and opens us us to new patterns of behaviour. It uplifts us inducing a sense of euphoria and transmutes any negativity. Grapefruit helps to restore our inner light
