Although essential oils with a sweet fragrance are derived from various plant families, most of them are extracted from actual flowers. Sweet oils represent the fullness of life, the sensuous sweetness of the many gifts that sustain us, and the nurturing we obtain from the presence and bounty of planet earth. Sweet oils can help awaken in us a deep connection with and gratitude for these gifts.
The effect of sweet oils generally tends to be relaxing, harmonizing, integrating and supporting. They can be amazingly useful in many different ways, especially by helping with emotional balance and poise. They can provide deep inner strength and support when needed. They should be at the top of anyone’s list for experiences of confusion, worry, anxiety, emotional insecurity ... for pretty much any feeling of conflict or distress.
Sweetness is essential to our experience of life, to our need for nourishment and satisfaction, and our call to healthy pleasure (regardless of our circumstances). The beauty and richness of these sweet oils is more than enough to convince us of the perennial wisdom to 'stop and smell the roses' along life’s often all-too-hectic journey.
