A 100% pure essential oil is not made with any synthetic chemicals. The term “essential oil” means that this oil is the very essence of the plant it was distilled from – it is the plant in its purest form, and made from nothing else. Essential oils are used in a wide variety of aromatherapy practices. Citronella refreshes a weary mind and lifts the spirit. It can be used for ritual purification or to cleanse a new home of old, lingering energies. It dispels heavy and dark thought-forms and negative energies. As an ingredient of Kyphi incense it can be used for dream and healing work.
