Shaktas dedicate their shrines to Shakti. Shakti is worshipped with Sandalwood. A few years ago, it was discovered that Indian Sandalwood trees had mostly all been harvested, and the entire genus was in danger of extinction. Many other varieties of Sandal trees exist, such as a Hawaiian and Australian. But to my mind, Indian Sandalwood essential oil is the most authentic and best-smelling.
If like me you absolutely must have Indian Sandal EO to anoint your shrine, look no further than Ananda Apothecary. Their Sandal is the only oil I would ever use to anoint the feet of my Shakti Rupa. Click the photo above for further info.
What a beautiful, deep, subtle, refreshing rose scent this is. I usually use Oils4Life for essential oils as their quality is very fine, the selection is great, the prices are very reasonable and they deliver so fast it’s as if they had biked it round themselves, all the way from Norfolk to Yokosuka. Top notch! Find out about them HERE.
Kim Wilburn hosts online webinars that are so left-field you actually exit the grounds. I have participated in her ancestor communication, spirit guides and of course Tarot teleseminars. Any aromatherapist worth her or his salt can testify that EOs have their own personality, and plant spirit shamanism is a fancy new way to talk about crofters, the people of the village we used to consult in the days before there was such a thing as medicine. Kim’s teleseminars are free to join, so why not join me and hook yourself up to a little plant spirit wisdom? Cleve Backster would thank you for it. Check HERE for all the details.
