Rose essential oil calls for blessings in our lives
Rose essential oil has countless beneficial properties, heals, brings happiness and harmony, friendship and luck to the house. Essential oils hold the life force and vibrational energy of the plants they come from. Plants transform and store beneficial energy, useful for many medical purposes since ancient times. Plants have magical powers and we use them both for daily food and as natural remedies. Rose oil, because I want to tell you about it, is one of the most precious essential oils.
Rose essential oil is associated as a symbol of love and beauty. We can use rose oil to attract love, to amplify our desire and passion, and to increase fertility and fidelity. On a spiritual level, rose essential oil guides us in the state of depth, bringing with it inspiration and wisdom. It is an essential oil with a powerful help in divination, in contacting the Underworld, and in encouraging prophetic dreams.
Rose oil is used by therapists, in clairvoyance, in communication with spirits and in psychic work in general. Because fairies are very much in love with roses, these oils help attract them and call their blessings. Rose essential oil is wonderful for the sanctification of the amelets and talismans. Removes negative thoughts and emotions,helping to keep secrets.
When we want to free ourselves from certain emotions, when we lose or break up with someone we love, it is good to use rose oil. It helps us gain confidence and courage, makes us more creative, gives us strength and connects us with the Higher Self.
Roses of Damascus and Morocco
We are all fascinated by the inviting smell of flower fragrances. People of ancient times were anointed with scents and scented oils being an almost universal practice. They performed different rituals by burning plants to connect between the physical and spiritual realms, between the world of man and that of the divine. The word perfume comes from latin per, which means “through”, and “fume”, which means “smoke”.
The ancient Egyptians believed that deities were embodied in the smoke and scent of aromatic plants burned in the temple. These essential oils were used to enter deep states of meditation, to purify the spirit and for magical rituals. Such magic gripped me when I was invited to the Elysee by the perfume lady, Cristina Bălan. There I met for the first time Marie Urban – Le Febre, a remarkable perfumer, a perfect perfume maker of a sensitivity, and almost magical grace.
It was like a love at first sight to enter this fascinating world. I love flowers and I tried to find out as much as I could about their blessings. There I discovered the magical names of the various pure essences of flowers, which by combining them you can obtain the spell that envelops you and leads you to the Divinity. I discovered the rose of Damascus and the rose of Morocco and of course others and others, more and more inviting. Today I stop at the roses and expose some of the Divine qualities that they have on us.
The roses of Morocco,Rosa gallica, are also known as: the cabbage rose, the French rose, the Rose of Morocco, the May rose, the Provencal rose. It seems to have its origins in Persia (Iran) and is like a one-and-a-half meter high bush with red or semi-double pink flowers. The Greek poet Sappho called the rose the queen of flowers.
To obtain essential oil from the roses of Morocco the petals are distilled to create a pale yellow oil with a rich, sweet-roseish smell. It has a strength of 3, has floral flavors, the note of fragrance being middle-base. It is good to avoid this fragrance during pregnancy.
Damascus rosesdo not originate in Syria, the land of roses, as many of us would have expected, but apparently originated in Asia. Damascus roses grow in 1-2 meter high bushes, with singular pink-medium flowers, and many thorns. It is said that this type of rose was found in Egyptian tombs during the reign of Ramses the Great. In Indian mythology, Lakshmi, Vishnu’s wife, was found in a rose, and hence the custom of the groom to give the bride rose essence on her wedding day.
This essential oil is obtained by steam or water distillation of the petals, from which a pale yellow or olive-coloured oil is obtained. The smell is rich, sweet floral, with a tinge of hot. It has a strength of 5, with a floral top flavor. And this essential oil is good to be avoided during pregnancy.
These precious oils we can often use to consecrate precious stones and crystals. Thus the vibrational energy of the stone and that of the oil will be intensified. A small drop is sufficient (with other oil or water base). We can use a sprayer or vaporizer for the blessing of the house. We can create our own blends of oils and essences to boost the energy in our home.
To get a good vibrational energy it is good to wear a fragrant mixture as a ritual fragrance, rubbing a little oil on the points of acupressure: the wrist, ankle, neck and the portion behind the knees. Rose essential oil corresponds to the sign: cancer, balance, sagittarius, taurus and elements water, air. Flavors stimulate and inspire us all regardless of the sign, delight our senses, emotions, memories, fill us with life and magic. Let’s begin our aromatic journey!
