Synopsis: Candice Covington is a certified aromatherapist, healing arts master, and energy worker. A former instructor at Ashmead College in Ayurvedic theory and aromatherapy, she is now the primary aromatherapist at the Chopra Center, as well as the founder of the essential oil company Divine Archetypes.

Using essential oils to influence your energetic make-up and karmic patterns. "Essential Oils in Spiritual Practice: Working with the Chakras, Divine Archetypes, and the Five Great Elements" by Candice details how to identify which tattvas (the Five Great Elements) are dominant in your energetic make-up; explores the energetic signatures of the essential oils associated with each tattva and chakra, including their archetypes, sacred geometry, sacred sounds, and colors; and explains how to identify your personal vibrational signature, purify your energy body, impart vibrational properties to jewelry, and work with yantras and mantras.

The tattvas, the Five Great Elements (earth, water, fire, air/wind, and ether/space) create and sustain not only the universe but also all of its inhabitants. Each of us has a unique combination of these elemental energies behind our personal characteristics which include everything from the color of our eyes to our behaviors and emotional temperament. What tattvas are dominant in our make-up can also be influenced by our surroundings and by karma. Essential oils, in addition to working biologically and chemically, also work at the energetic level, making them ideal for working with the tattvas.

Teaching you how to use essential oils to affect the very fabric of your being, Candice details how the Tattvas Method of essential oils allow access the deepest, most hidden aspects of Self, those beyond the reach of the mind, the very energetic causation patterns that set all behaviors and thoughts into motion. She reveals how the tattvas are the energy that animate each chakra and how we can use their archetypal energy to shape our inner life and align with our greater soul purpose.

Candice also provides energetic profiles of each tattva, chakra, and essential oil, explains their relationships to one another, and details how to identify what tattva or chakra is dominant at any given time. Exploring the energetic signatures of the tattvic essential oils, she details their elemental make-up, animal and deity archetypes, sacred geometry symbols, sacred syllables, and colors. Candice reveals how to discover the energy patterns responsible for directing unhealthy life patterns and explains how to identify your personal vibrational signature, purify your energy body, and craft your own unique ritual practice with essential oils.

Showing how essential oils are powerful vibrational tools for effecting change, Candice reveals how they allow each of us to deliberately steer our own destiny, fulfill our personal dharma, and be all that our souls intended us to be.

Critique: A complete and comprehensive course of essential oils instruction under one cover, "Essential Oils in Spiritual Practice: Working with the Chakras, Divine Archetypes, and the Five Great Elements" is a critically important study that will prove to be invaluable for both the novice and the seasoned professional wanting to utilize essential oils for the betterment of themselves and for others who could benefit from their application. Indeed, the use of essential oils to help individuals recover from opiloid addition is just beginning to be appreciated by the medical community. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Essential Oils in Spiritual Practice" should be a core part of every Metaphysical Studies collection in general, and Spirituality/Self-Transformation supplemental studies reading lists in particular.
