Meditate ~ A Precious Oils Blend for Prayer and Quiet Times


When one thinks of traditional fragrances of prayer and mediation often frankincense, myrrh, oud (a/k/a the lign aloes spoken about in Scripture as well as its other names; Eagle-wood, Gaharu or Jinko) and the precious sandalwood are on the top of the list. Precious Oils would like to introduce you to one of our most popular blends, Meditate. It contains many of these special trees and resins.

When inhaling Meditate we feel as we are walking in the Middle East that is known for its fragrant aromas. It is best used for those seeking a time of spiritual awareness during their own personal times of Prayer, for a quiet and relaxing massage or an Ayurveda or Reiki treatment. Those who pray and read inspirational and soul-searching books will enjoy this blend. Inhale deep as you reflect on the words that your are reading by placing a few drops on a tissue.

Due to the high resin content of Meditate, using it in an electric diffuser isn’t recommended. You can blend Meditate with jojoba or sweet almond oil for a massage or perfume.  For a bath add a few drops to 1/2 cup of cream, milk, honey or salt. Stir well before adding to your bath and relax.

Go to for Meditate and other quality essential oil blends. Your choice of sizes includes sample size  5/8 dram, 2 drams, 10 ml or 30 ml.


Notes on Essential Oils

The following notes on essential oils are published in my Esther’s Days of Purification book. Today I feel the need to publish them in my blog because there seems to be a growing number of people (MLM companies) who continue to promote unsafe practices of essential oils. I’m quite alarmed in their claims and feel that our freedom of buying and using these pure, plant products could become “controlled” by the government (FDA) in the future. If you have any questions of comments please contact me.

Notes on Essential Oils

Precious Oils believes that care and common sense must be used with essential oils. Aromatherapy is not a regulated industry and there are many “theories” being claimed within the growing number of companies selling essential oils. We are of the “old school” and do not believe that essential oils should be used undiluted or ingested. We also understand that often just a few drops are needed in applications of bath, compresses, massage and diffusers.

Pure essential oils often do not smell “good” like synthetic oils, especially Biblical oils. They are often very balsamic and earthy smelling, but the therapeutic elements of these oils are of great benefit. Adding a citrus oil often helps bring life to the aroma.

Please do not smell your essential oils from the bottles directly, or share your oils this way. It is better to place a drop on a tissue, cotton ball or Q-tip. Wait a moment and then breath in. You can cut your own scent strips from unbleached coffee filters.

Keep all essential oils in a dark, cool place. Temperature should be around 65-70° F. Precious Oils is using the clear, dropper bottles so you can reflect on the beauty of the essential oils. The clear bottles also let you know how much you have left. Remember to store in a dark, cool place!

Always remember everything and anything can cause an allergic reaction. Doing a “patch test” on your skin is always recommended.


Very Toxic Oils    Aniseed, Mugwort, Pennyroyal, Wintergreen. Be extremely cautious when you must use these Oils, using only small amounts and storing them safely away from children.

Semi-Toxic Oils    Cassia, Birch, Cedar wood, Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Lemon, Thyme. All of these, plus Orange and Eucalyptus can also become increasingly toxic if used repeatedly over a period of time.

Avoid the following Oils during pregnancy    Basil, Clary Sage, Hyssop, Juniper Berry, Marjoram, Myrrh, Pennyroyal, Rosemary and large amounts of Peppermint. Any of them can prematurely induce labor. Also avoid the very toxic and semi-toxic Oils, to protect the fetus.

Avoid in cases of Epilepsy    Fennel, Sage and large amounts of Rosemary or Hyssop. These could provoke an unwanted epileptic reaction,  If a person has a predisposition to this condition.

Be Aware of the Skin Irritants    All Citrus Oils (except Bergamot), Black Pepper, Cinnamon Bark, Citronella, Clove, Ginger, Lemongrass, Melissa, Nutmeg and large amounts of Cinnamon Leaf or Peppermint.

Persons with Asthma should use smaller amounts of any of the Essential Oils. The amounts can then be increased gradually if there is no sign of an adverse reaction.

Aroma Bottle Story

Aroma Bottle History

Perfume and incense made from aromatic plants (fruits, flowers, herbs, seeds, trees, spices and resins) can be traced nearly from the beginning of time. They were used by kings and priests who used them spiritually during prayer and to embalm the dead. They were used for medicinal purposes and brought refreshment when Kings and Queens went out in public during a time when opens sewers were found in the streets. In addition, fragrance was simply for the pleasure of the aroma to individuals. The containers that held the fragrant substance were made from alabaster, stone, earthenware, metal, linen and glass. Personal aroma bottles began in the days when dainty bottles carried a small amount of fragrance.  Perfumes weren’t worn as we do today but rather sniffed when one came upon unpleasant smells in the local town or village. (Remember bathing was only for special occasions; running water in your own home wasn’t available. Aren’t you grateful for America and running water!) With the advent of carrying small bottles of fragrance, many would flaunt their regal importance with gem adorned containers. The small and decorative containers of personal scent allowed a lady to refresh her perfume if she happened upon a gentleman who she desired to please. When corsets were in fashion, these small vials could also be used to carry smelling salts or vinegars, as the tight-lacing sometimes brought on spells of dizziness. Perfume bottle pendants were primarily worn as necklaces but it was also fashionable to wear them hanging from a pin on your clothing or as part of a chatelaine. Herbs and resins were also carried in a pouch that was worn around the neck to combat insects, bring refreshment during travel and as one needed (desired). Today we can wear our favorite essential oil or natural perfumes in Aroma Bottles sharing in the ancient personal aroma experience and using them as we have need of today.  Your Aroma Bottle is great for travel, personal pleasure and stressful situations. We recommend only using 5 to 20 drops of your favorite aroma in your Aroma Bottle; the cork acts as a diffuser.
