Lemon Visualisation to Maintain Health

Lemon Essential Oil Visualisation

In Scott Cunningham’s book, Magical Aromatherapy: The Power of Scent, he suggests placing a few drops of lemon essential oil on to a cotton wool ball and inhaling “the refreshing scent to maintain health” while visualising the oils “energies strengthening your body” letting your minds-eye “see the fragrance fighting off the infection” and “encouraging cell growth and the resultant healing” in the case of illness or injury. He also recommends myrrh essential oil “to speed healing of the physical body”. Other oils which could be used in this way to maintain health include eucalyptus, pine, lavender, and thyme.

This short visualisation can be used for other things such as stress, anxiety, aches and pains, and much more. You would need to change what you visualise slightly, for example, if you have a back ache, visualise the fragrance strengthening the muscles and bones of your back, reducing the inflammation, and relieving the pain and then finally see yourself free from pain. You wouldn’t use lemon for this, perhaps eucalyptus, ginger, German chamomile, plai or black pepper.

You can even do this visualisation without the use of essential oils, just visualise your own body fighting off an infection, repairing damaged cells, being free from worries, tension, or anxiety, etc.
