We all know that death is part of the natural cycle. Even so, and whether expected after a long illness or unexpectedly in a car accident, the loss of a loved one is a painful and wrenching experience; with those left behind, left to deal with the pain, sorrow, and a variety of emotions, stress, anxiety and panic. We are left feeling empty, like there is a whole in our lives. Thankfully, through a combination of aromatherapy and reiki, we can quickly and easily stabilize and support our mind and emotions by accessing areas of our mind, body and energetic being – to release anger and pain, comfort, sooth, uplift and balance. Here is your holistic toolkit…
I get the best results by using the oils below, individually or in combination i) in a diffuser for 30 minute periods at a time throughout the day, ii) adding about 15 drops to a bath (or try an Aromatic Salt Bath) and/or iii) diluted in a carrier oil and drop periodically massaged using one finger on to the tip of the nose and nostrils.
Bergamot & Sweet Orange Oils can be used individually or together, as they are both anti-depressive and uplifting.

Whether for bereavement or other form of loss, by energetically accessing the body, mind and spirit, Reiki balances and releases, allows us to go forward with love and in light, and as such plays a key role in the grief and loss work I do.
Reiki can be of support prior to the loss happening, at the time of loss or even years later. If this resonates with you or if you know someone who could benefit from this type of support to help them deal, feel more comforted with a loving clarity, please contact me for further information at email@example.com.
