During the Christmas season and really all year long, throughout the world there are too many negative things going on and people tend to feed off the news that is full of negativity and negative energy.
Fortunately not all news is negative and actually during this time of the year there is more positive news because people are reminded of those that have less and our generosity comes out to help those in need.
However we do have to contend with bad news and the negative affects it may cause in our lives, in our heart, soul and minds. What can we do to turn the negative thoughts and feelings around to positive? There are many ways, but I would like to focus right now on Young Living therapeutic grade essential oil Palo Santo.
Palo santo (Bursera graveolens) comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense, although it is found in the rich jungles of South America rather than the Middle East. Like frankincense, palo santo is known as a spiritual oil, traditionally used by the Incas to purify and cleanse the spirit from negative energies. Even its Spanish name reflects how highly this oil is regarded: Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “sacred wood.” Very fitting essential oil to learn about during the Christmas season.
How to use: For topical use, dilute 50-50 ratio and apply 1-2 drops on affected area. For aromatic use, inhale directly as needed or diffuse/humidify for 10-15 minutes daily. Keep in a cool, dark place.
To help with the negative feelings, apply 2-3 drops of Palo Santo and 2-3 drops of V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex to the soles of the feet, over the crown chakra, and heart chakra. (Read more on Chakras). After applying, cup hands over the nose (without touching skin or eyes) and inhale deeply 2-3 times. Sit peacefully and think about what brings you joy. This has helped me when I have had a hard day.*
Diffusing Palo Santo
Palo Santo can be diffused and may help to cleanse the the air of negative energies. Put 10-20 drops of Palo Santo in your Young Living diffuser, diffuse for 30-60 minutes twice a day (morning and evening).
If you are feeling like you need help removing negative energies that have creeped into your life, Palo Santo may be just what you need to help get to a more positive place in your life. May you find peace and keep it with you.
