Imbolc has long been celebrated as a time for new beginnings, births and bring with it the first signs of Spring. This makes it the perfect time for cleaning and decluttering and purifying your space. To that end, let’s look at choosing essential oils for Imbolc.
Purifying Essential Oils for your Sacred Space
The following essential oils are just a few that work well to help purify your space.
What’s the best way to use essential oils?
The easiest way is going to be by diffusing them. There are several methods you can use for diffusing that include passive diffusion like dead sea salts scented and kept in sachets, atomizing diffusers, tea light diffusers, etc. You can even add a couple drops of your blend to an unscented soy candle - I recommend do this before you light your wick.
As far as blending, you can keep it super simple and do equal parts of your favorite oils or you can try the diffuser recipe below:
Another means of using them is by adding them to an unscented base for cleaning. Just remember to wear gloves when you are cleaning with them as they can irritate the skin or cause phototoxic reactions.
