Supporting the healing endeavors of all individuals practicing Reiki in the Midwest
In keeping with the theme of our most recent Reiki Share, this week’s edition of Reiki News is dedicated to all things essential oils:
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the concentrated vital essences of aromatic plants with potent therapeutic properties. When used for healing purposes, treatment is called aromatherapy and it employs one of three methods of application: aerial diffusion, direct inhalation, and topical application.
Because essential oils are highly concentrated, they must be diluted in a carrier oil (such as almond, grapeseed, or jojoba) for skin application.
Ways to Use Essential Oils
There are a wide variety of essential oils available, each with different properties.

At the Midwest Reiki Community, we love social media as a tool to spread the word about Reiki around the world. We tweet and pin regularly to share information about Reiki in the news, updates on local events, and inspiring articles and posts by fellow Reiki practitioners across the globe. We realize however that not all our members are using social media, so to help keep you in the loop, every week we create a summary of things we saw on the web we thought were worth sharing with you. Be sure to subscribe to our blog via email or your favorite RSS feeder so you don’t miss a thing!
