How I Make My "Rescue Sprays"
There's something about certain scents that uplift, enlighten, and calm us, and if you know anything about essential oils then I'm willing to bet you know what I'm talking about! Today's wide use of aromatherapy has opened the door to understanding natural healing methods - albeit in a form that's easier for many to accept and grasp. Many spas and massage therapists incorporate lavender for it's calming effect, naturopaths suggest using peppermint, lemon and eucalyptus to treat minor illnesses naturally, and those in holistic healing are able to suggest concoctions that suit individual needs. As someone that started using essential oils to treat Teddy's illnesses, then later branched out to make said concoctions with my intuitive work... I have found a long list of benefits to using them.
It didn't dawn on me to make any kind of "rescue spray" until after my first Reiki attunement; when I was feeling pulled in different directions while dealing with my heightened sensitivities and awareness. I realized that just taking a slow, deep breath while smelling my smudge stick was enough to ground me in the moment -- something that caused a mood shift (for the better!) in an instant. With this realization, a light bulb lit up in my brain and I knew I needed to turn to essential oils to create a solution for dealing with my busy, 9-5 corporate life that conflicted with my spiritual practices. Since I was someone that found themselves either managing an office or heading a sensitive, important function such as payroll, I would find myself getting easily stressed out despite my daily practices to ground, protect, and heal myself.
You can choose your oils however you wish but if you want to create based on a goal, I suggest using a pendulum. I lined up all my essential oil bottles on a surface, sat before them, and asked which ones to use - channel with your Spirit Guides (and others) and ask them to pick the oils with the pendulum. Alternatively, if you're confident with your clairabilities, ask for the names to come to you through one of those abilities.
While completely optional, I opted to add Rose Water to my sprays.
2) Find a source of water you want to use
I sourced out a local bottled water that was certified to be from a spring - this was important to me because I wanted the entirety of the spray to be as natural as possible. Not to say all other sources aren't, but this was where I landed with what I wanted to use. Go with any water source you wish, but give this some thought before proceeding.
3) Find a preservative
(especially depending on what's available to you).

Created similarly, I add oils as selected for one's current needs.
