Essential Oils to Cleanse, Purify and Combat Negativity
In everyday life, negative energy and influences surround us all on many levels:
Deceitful Family Members...
Ignorance... Impatience... Bigotry... Hatred... Manipulation... Selfishness...
There are also so many beautiful events in everyday life to experience and savor, but it can become a challenge to notice and appreciate the joys in life when negative influences constantly bombard and drain us.
Although it cannot be seen, it is believed by some that negative energy can build up in a space if it isn't cleared. Our homes, offices and vehicles are believed to store these negative energies and influence our outlook and relationships. Catholics, Native Americans and Wiccans are amongst those that include rituals utilizing aromatics within their practices to bless and rid negativity from homes and spaces.
