Where Do We Get Essential Oils?

Essential oils can be captured from seeds, roots, flowers, stems, and leaves of plants. Today we are going to focus on essential oils derived from seeds and how they can be used during spring to foster growth. Most seed oils come from plants in the apiaceae family including cumin, fennel, caraway, coriander, and celery. Seeds ultimately are all about potential.

What is the Function of the Seed?

Seeds give life to plants and are responsible for reproduction. Furthermore, the seed pod protects the life within. They are protected and perfectly contained life forms. They also are vessels of faith that we plant and rely on to grow.

In aromatherapy practice, essential oils derived from seeds are used for emotional growth and releasing emotional trauma, especially those around birth and reproduction. They’re also great when you’re embarking on new projects, when energy feels blocked, or when your energy field needs protection.

Using Seed Oils in the Spring

Spring is the perfect time to use these essential oils because seed energy goes dormant in the winter and emerges with vibrancy with the warmer spring temperatures. Use them often to help manifest dreams, generate creative energy, and spring forth new potential.
