Many essential oil users begin their journey with a specific preferred use driving their applications. For example, some oilers prefer aromatic benefits of essential oils, while others use essential oils in their personal healthcare routine. Later in their journey, many users tend to appreciate the benefits of oils in their spiritual practice. Here are six oils which have great benefits for spiritual cleansing.


Cedarwood is used for spiritual grounding and purification. It’s also one of the essential oils used for spiritual awakening. It cleanses your space, heals the present, and purifies the spirit. 


Rosemary is a highly revered essential oil for enlightenment. It has been mentioned in European history for its purification and healing powers. This essential oil has a stimulating, invigorating and refreshing aroma that will uplift you. Its aromatic profile is fresh, sweet, and herbaceous.

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang is the perfect essential oil for times you need to express gratitude. This essential oil comes from the flowers of the ylang ylang tree, which is known as the “Perfume Tree.” Its scent is intoxicating and exquisite, making it a highly precious oil sought-after by many essential oil enthusiasts. Its aromatic profile is fresh, floral, sweet, and slightly fruity.


Peppermint is another essential oil used for cleansing and purification. It has an intense scent that can also be highly pleasant to the senses. It is also one of the most concentrated essential oils out there. Diluting it with an air purifier or oil diffuser would give out a fresh, minty and uplifting scent. Peppermint stimulates the senses, enhances alertness, and improves stamina. Diffusing or spraying it over your meditation space will clear out impurities and negative vibrations.


Lavender is commonly known for its calming, soothing and relaxing properties. In practices for spiritual awakening, it facilitates deeper states of meditation. Highly spiritual individuals use it to cleanse and soothe the soul and prepare it for spiritual work. It also balances and stabilizes the physical, etheric and astral bodies.
