When working with angels, it’s nice to add a lovely touch of aromatherapy, not only to strengthen the connection, but maybe even help “call” specific angels for certain requests, as well as adding a beautiful scent ‘aura’ to the space you’re working in, it can also help you get in the right ‘mind-frame’ to accomplish your task.
With all the benefits of essential oils, adding them to your angel work is almost a necessity, plus, angels are definitely attuned to specific frequencies and every essential oil carries a different energy within it, so it stands to reason that specific angels are attuned to specific essential oils and are more apt to show up when the essential oils attuned to them are present.
