Aromas and fragrances have a strong impact on our wellbeing and mindset.
In the DHARMI® Method we associate the scent with the Element of Air. We use aromatherapy to support transcendence, balance and connection during the meditations and dharmic immersion.
Christelle Chopard, founder of the method, became familiar with aromatherapy in the early nineties in Switzerland when she initiated her career as holistic consultant and healer.
She worked together with Michael Orkin, an expert in aromatherapy and flower essences in Florida, to develop specific blends that will support the balance of the Elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.
Aromatherapy is a word that has been created in 1937 by french chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse. Though the science of scents and aromatic oils have been used in old Egyptians cultures as well as in Chinese and Indian traditions for hundreds of years.
What are the Five blends that we created and what are their purpose and benefits?
Foundation, grounding, structure, strengthen the immune system, support your sense of organization, resources, prosperity.
Balance relationships, release emotional stress, develop intuition.
Motivation, inspiration, it supports self-confidence and gives a boost of energy.
Clarity, Breath, clear the mind, support good memory and concentration. It also free space for a clear reflection.
Oneness, hope, faith and spiritual connection.
These blends are used specifically to integrate and to balance your frequency through a DHARMIc Journey. Though, they can also be used independently for your wellbeing and self-development.
How to use them?
Ways to select the element of the day:
- Focus your mind on an intention and pick one without watching. Your sense of perception will choose the one that you will need the most at this time.
- If you feel that you have a clear calling for a specific energy that day. Choose that Element with mindfulness.
You choose the Element with your right hand. You will place a drop of the essential oil at the base of the left thumb (and along spine – hand reflexology).
You will rub your hands together, do it gentle, not too strong which could burn the properties of the oils.
Sit comfortable and place your hands 7 inches from your face. Breathe in and out deeply. Smell and observe the response in your body. Which sensations does this aroma awakens within you? Take a few minutes to center and align yourself with your intention while being receptive of the fragrance to balance your frequency.
You can wear the one of your choice through the day as a perfume or have it with you to breathe in to recenter.
