How To Make Your Own Infused Oils for Living Your Best Life

Just like crystals are earth's magical energetic sources, essential oils have a magic of their own!

In today's market, the price of many essential oils has been inflated, as holistic and alternative healing practices have become very trendy. You can easily spend hundreds of dollars on essential oil aromatherapy systems. I myself even almost got roped into becoming an ambassador for a company in essential oil aromatherapy, where I would have been promoting packages for well over $100!

With how my bank account was set up, I knew I didn't want to sell something that I couldn't afford myself. That is when I got into the idea of making my own Infused healing oils and spell kits.

Basically, essential oils are a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. The process of distilling oils can be very tedious, however, by blending natural herbs and plants, with affordable essential oils, you can create your own infused healing magic!

The process of infusing oils takes 3-6 weeks, but it will be well worth the wait! Read below to learn how to make the following infused oil healing blends I've come up with for my collective healing business, Melanade Stand.

What You'll Need:

  • An Oil Base: Use Coconut, Sunflower, Almond, Grapeseed, or Jojoba oils as your base. You can find inexpensive bulk quantities online.
  • A Glass Jar with a screw top.
  • A Strainer and Cheese Cloth
  • Assorted Essential Oils
  • Herb and Plant Blends
  • A Corked Storage Container or Vile

Natural Herb, Plant Blend & Essential Oil Pairs:

Self-Love and Self-Care Blend:

How To Do It:

  1. Grab an empty, clean, and dry glass jar. The size is up to you.
  2. Fill your jar with any one of the herb and plant blends above. Leave some space at the top.
  3. Pour in your base oil, making sure to cover all of the herbs and plants.
  4. Put 4 to 6 drops of the accompanying essential oils, (one or all of your choice) for each herb and plant blend. *How much essential oil you use depends on how large your jar is, and how fragrant or strong you'd like your oil infusion to be. Use your discretion.
  5. Cover your jar tightly, label and date it, than store it in a cool place in your home. Let it Infuse for 3 to 6 weeks.
  6. Grab your strainer and line it with cheesecloth. Carefully open your jars, and pour the infused oil into your storage containers or vials.
  7. You can now use your healing oil in your affirmation and meditative practices. They also make great gifts, or you can sell your own infusions!

Tip: Make a body butter or salve by adding your oil to natural melted African Shea butter or Coco butter. Whip it together, and let it harden in the refrigerator in a mason jar.

How To Use Oils And Incense

Whatever you can find as an oil, you can likely find as an incense. Use the aromatherapy properties in both to intensify your meditation and affirmation rituals.

Use Oils and Incense During Baths and Showers:

  • Drop two to four drops of oil of your choice in a full bath.
  • Light a candle, grab some crystals, and carry out your rituals as usual.
  • If taking a shower, light an incense stick to carry in the steam.
  • You can also drop oil into the shower, and the steam will pick up its essence.

Use Incense Smoke as an Energetic Incense Bath or Smudge:

  • Smoke your room out with an incense that evokes the energies you wish to immerse yourself in.
  • Allow the aroma into your ethereal body.
  • This is a good way to visualize the things you wish to manifest, surrounded in an energy that will help bring it forth.
  • This is also a great way to clear out any unwanted energy in your home or surroundings.
  • The best smoke smudging can be accomplished with burning Palo Santo sticks or a bushel of sage.

Anoint Candles and Your Body With Oils:

If you use candles in your rituals, you can intensify the energy by anointing your candle in a healing oil infusion of your choice.

  • Rub your candle with the oil, whilst you set your intentions into what you wish to meditate on as it burns. This is a great manifestation tool.
  • Also use essential oils in addition to your lotion or shea butter, or whatever you use to moisturize your skin. Or make your own infused healing oil.

If you work in an environment where you feel you need to be protected, place a drop or two of Sandalwood in your body cream. You can also make your own natural essential oil-infused shea butter rub or salve.

Tip: Also try using essential oils as an alternative for your perfumes and body sprays.

Use Oils and Crystals to Tune Your Chakras:

There are seven chakras that run up and down the human body. Use complementing crystals and oils as a way to tune and balance your chakras.

  • Start by rubbing a drop of 7 different energy-matching essential oils over each Chakra.
  • Then create a Chakra aligning crystal grid to run up and down your body, whilst you carry out your meditation and affirmation rituals.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
