Spiritual Freedom and Essential Oils

Home » General » Spiritual Freedom and Essential Oils

Many spiritual traditions do not stress abstinence as a practice. However, many do. RABBI MOSHE CHAIM LUZZATTO who lived in the 1700s describes that “It is good to recognize that anyone who would climb a holy mountain must be able to draw a line and not cross it. Our world is given to us to enjoy, but we must also be the masters over our own gratifications. When we are capable of pushing away whatever calls to us we can say our free will is truly intact. In order to attain holiness, it is essential for a person to practice abstinence.”

Arborvitae: The Oil of Divine Grace

doTERRA Arborvitae Essential Oil

Arborvitae helps individuals who believe or act like everything is or has to be a struggle and that they must do things themselves without asking for help. Instead of putting their trust in the Divine, these individuals block any help coming from the Divine, unknowingly so, and they choose to do everything by themselves, through their own hard efforts. They have that unyielding need to control every outcome in their lives. They are hesitant and resistant to asking for help.

Arborvitae comes in to address this need for control and invites the individual to live in peace, harmony and in complete trust in the grace of God. It can be so relieving to rely on this divine grace and help you feel more surrendered and grounded to His will. You do what you can and leave the rest up to God and His abundant grace – that is truly a great motto to live by and will leave you feel more complete and whole.

Arborvitae is a grounding oil that teaches that Divine Grace is all around us. It can be felt and experienced right here on Earth. God is not distant nor separate from us and He can guide us towards what we should keep close and what we should let go of.

Arborvitae has been used for centuries by Canadian Natives to promote grounding, calming, and spiritual trust. Like all tree oils, it can help us stand tall with strength and stability, rooted to the ground. Arborvitae comes from the Latin word meaning “to sacrifice”. It invites individuals to surrender their personal will and ambitions for a more fulfilling way of living without control, rigidity or fear issues. By surrendering to Divine Grace, the mind is able to relax and the soul feels more at peace and is able to breathe. Arborvitae helps us understand that real strength comes from emptying our hearts to receive God’s grace. It asks individuals to take a deep breath, relax and trust in the flow of life.

Arborvitae helps our souls experience effortless living by the grace of God.

Blends Well With: Arborvitae blends well with: Birch, Cedarwood, Cassia, Frankincense or Eucalyptus.

Taken from the AA Big Book

This is a great oil to use when helping someone with addiction who is struggling to fully embrace Step 3 which is “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.” In this part of a person’s recovery, an individual is learning to accept that asking God for help is a good thing.

It’s not just for folks with addiction though. All of us can use this oil to help us surrender our personal wills and ambitions for a more fulfilling way of living without control, rigidity or fear issues. Many people hedge their home’s borders with these trees. This paints a picture to the boundary the Creator can use when we trust Him with control over our struggles and goals. To trust that the One who created everything and everyone knows what He is doing and is able to handle what concerns us is very freeing emotionally and spiritually. We do what we can AND trust Him to address what needs His attention and mold us into what and who He is creating us to be.
