Instill energetic effects into your blends by understanding plant parts.
Use this blending technique to:
It stands tall and stately, yet graceful. The bright fruits seem to sparkle like gems among the deep green leaves as they rustle in the breeze.
The tree has everything it needs to thrive right where it is. It has rich soil to offer nutrients, air and light to help it flourish and produce fruit, and insects and animals living in harmony with it to help it spread its seeds.
All of these natural resources help the tree thrive.
Now imagine that tree could fill you with the properties that make it so strong, healthy, and resilient, helping you to also thrive in your environment.
When you blend essential oils based on the plant part they’re produced from, your products become infused with the “energy” of that particular part of the plant, offering profound emotional and mental strength.
This chapter covers the energetic effects that five different plant parts can bring to your blends.
A plant’s roots, rhizomes, or rootlets anchor it into the earth.
They also allow the plant to draw rich nourishment out of the soil. It has a solid foothold in the world—somewhere it belongs—and can find everything it needs for life in that environment.
Essential oils produced from roots can give you that experience.
A plant’s wood gives it strength and structure.
The inner wood distributes nutrients throughout the plant, so the leaves, flowers, and fruit can be produced. And the outer wood and bark offer protection. Its wood also allows the plant to be a shelter for others—like birds and chattering squirrels.
Even we humans can use wood to create our homes!
Flowers help a plant attract pollinators—like birds, bees, and other insects.
Flowers usually show up in the spring and summer. Their whole purpose is beauty—looking and smelling irresistible, so other beings will be drawn in, and the plant can propagate itself.
We humans use flowers in the same way. They beautify our homes, and often serve as gifts between friends and lovers. They can signify friendship, warmth, and romance… or even new life! Floral oils are also often used in skincare, as their tendency toward beauty can help soothe and repair the skin.
A plant’s leaves (or needles) allow it to breathe.
They take in carbon dioxide, and release life-giving oxygen. Leaves also turn light into nourishment in the process of photosynthesis. Leaves provide us with shade and allow us to hear the wind as it rustles through them. Spending time among green, leafy plants can clear our heads and fill us with calm energy.
In exchange for being able to spread its seeds far and wide, the plant offers tasty, nutritious food to other creatures. The fruit is literally the “fruition” of a plant’s life cycle. Where flowers help a plant express itself and attract other beings, the fruit is an expression that gives back. It’s life-giving.
Fruit supports our health and uplifts our spirits. It’s a celebration of life, and a chance to continue the dance!
