Rhododendron Essential Oil


Rhododendron essential oil is fairly new to the aromatherapy market.  The leaves of the tree are sometimes burned as an incense in Buddhist temples, much like a Native American smudge; they are also used frequently as an offering or decoration in homes, at gatherings and sacred places.

Energetically, rhododendron essential oil helps to call in and build communities, and aids in finding our spiritual family.

It carries an affinity for the heart center, the heart, and lungs.

Inhaling rhododendron essential oil helps us have an expansive perspective.  It assists in manifestation and moving the blocks to experiencing our bliss.

It also assists in healing emotional and mental pain.  It helps reconcile relationships and improve interpersonal communication.

It is a helpful oil for supporting past life regression and other forms of spiritual/emotional therapy.
