A new aromatherapy essential oil blend inspired by “Bird of the Soul,” the latest book by New York Times bestselling author Ilchi Lee, is designed to enhance your meditation and awaken the spirit within.
New York Times bestselling author Ilchi Lee’s latest book, “Bird of the Soul,” has inspired a new essential oil aromatherapy blend.
Developed with Lee’s guidance and expertise in mind-body meditation practices, Bird of the Soul Essential Oil
is promoted as a means of bringing the hopeful and heartwarming message of the book to life. With the essences of fifteen plant aromas mixed with jojoba and apricot kernel oils, the blend is meant to awaken and brighten the spirit.
“It exudes the fragrance of the Bird of the Soul, which every person has in their heart," Lee says. "It heals the bird of the soul and lets it take flight.”
The suggested uses include applying it to major acupressure points and pulse points and breathing comfortably while focusing on those points.
Like acupressure or acupuncture, this technique will open the points for better energy circulation for overall well-being. The oil can also be used as part of other meditation, yoga or Qigong practices to help calm and focus the mind, as well as simply being used as a perfume.
The oil comes in a 0.33 fl. oz. (10 ml.) roll-on bottle with a decorative cap and a picture of the main character, the bird of the soul, from the book printed on the label. Distributed by the book’s publisher, Best Life Media, the oil sells for $27.50 and is currently only available at birdofthesoul.com
Bird of the Soul Essential Oil roll-on includes apricot kernel, jojoba, eucalyptus, lavender, cedarwood, lemon, patchouli, chamomile, tangerine, cypress, mandarin, sweet orange, geranium, sandalwood, jasmine, rosemary and bergamot.
Aromatherapy is an alternative health technique that uses a plant’s aroma-producing oils to improve physical, mental, and emotional imbalances.
As it is used today, aromatherapy originated in Europe around the beginning of the 20th century. However, oils were known to have healing properties since the first century A.D. and distilled essential oils were first used as medicines since the invention of distillation in the 11th century.
