Healing Through Scent: Spring Equinox 2013

By: Stephanie Tingle


Have you ever walked into a space and felt instantly at peace, or perhaps rejuvenated after a long day? Many times this is due to the use of specific scents to enhance the mood of that space. Restaurants, department stores, hospitals, and other businesses have long been aware of the ability of scent to influence behavior. You can reap the same benefits in your own space through the use of aromatherapy and essential oils. Aromatherapy is the practice of using scent to influence mental and physical well-being.  An easy way to benefit from aromatherapy is by using essential oils, which are the pure essences of plants, flowers, or herbs. These pure oils are collected by various methods including steam extraction and pressing.  Essential oils can greatly benefit your body and change your emotions through their natural scents. While they can smell pleasant, “fragrance oils” do contain synthetic ingredients and do not offer the therapeutic benefits of essential oils, so for the greatest benefit, be sure to use only pure, good quality essential oils and products that contain them.  Unless specified otherwise, essential oils should not be ingested.  Skin should always be tested for sensitivity prior to topical use.  

Equinox comes from a Latin word which means “equal night.” The Spring, or Vernal, Equinox on March 20th brings almost equal amounts of day and night to everyone around the world. It’s also the first official day of Spring, which is a great reason to celebrate! The Balance & Harmony Lemongrass Candle is a great way to bring in freshness and clear out stagnant energy.  This time of the year, I also love to make an aromatherapy spray that incorporates the clean, revitalizing scent of Lemongrass essential oil. I like to incorporate crystals into my sprays, to add extra energy to them. Lemon Quartz, Labradorite, or Carnelian are great additions to this spray.  Lemon Quartz’s yellow and green colors are the epitome of springtime and it carries a wonderfully protective and healing energy. Labradorite is also protective and is helpful in times of change. It heals old, painful memories and so that you can make a fresh start…and its flash is just beyond gorgeous! Carnelian represents the cycle of life; it increases physical energy and boosts creativity so that you can begin new projects.


To make a four-ounce water -based aromatherapy spray to celebrate this year’s Spring Equinox, you will need:

One 4 ounce spray bottle

4 ounces distilled water

Essential oils as listed below; please make sure to use only pure essential oils. 

Crystals as listed below (optional)



20 drops Lemongrass essential oil

10 drops Lavender essential oil

5 drops Sage essential oil

Lemon Quartz, Carnelian,or Labradorite



Add essential oils to the spray bottle then add water to fill, gently swirling to mix.

If you’d like, add small crystals or crystal chips to the bottle. The crystals listed in the

recipe are a recommendation, you may always use Clear Quartz or any other crystal

that you are drawn to. Alternatively, the essential oils can also be mixed into 2 ounces of carrier oil, such as Jojoba or Sweet Almond oil, and applied externally to the body.


This blend is a great way to say goodbye to winter and celebrate the Spring Equinox!
