Esoteric aromatherapy works with the subtle, metaphysical and spiritual levels of life. The esoteric or metaphysical branch on the aromatherapy tree is a fascinating field of specialization and certainly worthy of our time and attention.
This is by far the most cutting-edge branch of aromatherapy being practiced. It is the future of aromatherapy, as we know it. Understanding human subtle energy is the ‘new’ frontier in medical research.
The theory of integral physiology, now being researched, is a sign that the hard science is beginning to emerge for understanding the subtle realms of existence.
Integral physiology offers us a ‘neutral' language and the framework needed for an intelligent discussion about the non-material aspects of our being and how we heal.
It is now thought that in the near future the scientific means needed to prove the integral physiology theory and the technology to put it to use will have been developed.
Though esoteric aromatherapy has been practiced for many hundreds, or even thousands of years, the practice of esoteric aromatherapy is just now open for discovery by modern medicine.
This means the use of essential oils for subtle energy work that is now practiced by lovers of aromatherapy and energy medicine practitioners will expand, perhaps beyond our current comprehension.
Here are just a few subtle energy practices that use essential oils.
Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning “disc,” or “spinning wheel of energy,” or “wheel of light.”
Your chakras are spinning wheels, or vortices of energy that connect your physical life form with your transpersonal “nonmaterial” Divine Self. Interestingly, chakras look similar in their shape to our home, the Milky Way Galaxy.
Windows of Perception
Your chakras are quite literally windows of perception for organizing the various dimensions of reality, and act much like energetic maps or blueprints you use to interpret the meaning of your life experiences.
It is at your Chakras that prana, or life force energy, is organized in its flow through your physical bodymind.
You might say chakras are portals of light for sending, receiving and perceiving information from the world. It is at the level of your chakras that you automatically attract, interpret and organize incoming data, as well as transmit vibrational signals.
Balancing of your 7 Major Chakras and the 8th and 9th chakras is the most important for maintaining your health and well-being.

Astrology is one of my primary Self Discovery tools. It is an excellent guide for getting on in life and great for the timing of events. You can get an inside look at why something is happening, how long it will be happening, and how to transcend it. Transcendence is ultimately the name of the game in life.

I cracked the code on the essential oils to use for balancing astrology aspects like Mercury Retrograde.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) first originated more than 2,500 years ago in ancient China. Its practice has evolved for many thousands of years. TCM practitioners use herbal medicine and different mind and body practices like acupuncture and tai chi to bring balance to the 5 elements and their associated organs. In this way TCM practitioners prevent and treat dis-ease.
