Can aromatherapy help alcohol addiction?

March 11th, 2011 by Gritman Blogger


There is a little secret in the aromatherapy community. Lemon essential oil helps heal alcohol abuse and addiction. It is believed that lemon oil can erase the hereditary marker in a person’s aura or energy field. Alcoholic parents can prevent their children from having a genetic proclivity towards alcoholism. In releasing the tendency towards alcohol addiction, there are subtle, etheric energy webbings that resemble spider webs that are broken and dissolved. Clearing these webbings away then weakens the alcoholic tendency in all family members in all directions of the family tree. It is like breaking off chains of bondage. Anyone who is alcoholic has damage in the energy field. That is one of the reasons alcohol is so destructive. It blows holes in the aura. Once the damage is done, it leaves the person vulnerable to negative energy.

How do you use essential oil to rid yourself of alcohol abuse, damage, and/or addiction? Taking baths or having regular massages with formulas that include lemon oil is one of the best solutions. There is a need to look at the emotional issues surrounding alcohol use. Essential oils move emotion. Usually there is need to avoid pain and avoid suffering. Oils that help stop pain and suffering are Peppermint and Yarrow. Often alcoholics are depressed which masks high levels of anger and rage. Oils that clear anger are cinnamon and ajowan.

Any Eucalyptus oil and all the Cedarwoods help to heal the energy field from damaged caused by alcohol abuse. Including some of these oils in the bath or massage will help anyone heal from alcohol damage. Many children today born to alcoholic parents could be relieved of much distress by bathing the child in warm water with lemon oil, lavender, chamomile, cedarwood, and apple cider vinegar. After the first bath, the infant or child will be able to sleep and relax perhaps for the first time. Simple lemon oil can have a profound effect on those suffering from alcoholic abuse. Lemon heals the unstable energy patterns in the nervous system. Lemon also dissolves worry and resentment.

Along with lemon oil, Lemon Petitgrain can also be used in the bath and massage to help with addiction. Petitgrains are used to break habitual or addictive patterning. Lemon Petitgrain oil comes from the twigs and leaves of the lemon tree. Along with Lemon oil that is pressed from the lemon rind, these oils can break rigid patterns of alcoholic addiction. True healing and release from addiction can be achieved.

    For use in addiction, I would use it in bath therapy. I would put at least 30 drops of lemon in the hot water and soak in bath. There may be other oils that will go with this. This treatment is about working with your energetic field. If you need a essential oil consultation, you can call Gritman at 281-996-0103.

    Lemon Oil in bathwater irritates the nerves in my legs terribly! I can’t stand it in a bath. It’s like I have electricity in my legs.

    This is an interesting symptom. Does Lemon Petitgrain do the same thing to you? It might be a substitute.

    The oils are best in bath or with carrier. There can be stinging in baths so make sure you have a fatty oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil or Olive Oil by bath to stop stinging. Just rub some oil on the stinging area and it should stop quickly. If it doesn’t get out of the bath and shower off. If there is fatty oil in the water, we careful getting out of the bath to prevent slipping.

    Is lemon oil effective for alcohol addiction treatment if it is used in a diffuser?

  8. Comment by Meg Shehad

    Yes, it can be helpful. I like it best in bath therapy and at least 30 drops need to be used in the bath. Milli Austin has a book out called the Healing Bath. This will give formulas for helping with alcoholism. Any way you can get lemon oil into the addictive environment, it will help.

    I am going through levels of anger and rage would you mix lemon oil with cinnamon and ajowan in a bath and could you use it in a diffuser

    Cinnamon should address the anger and of course ajowan is good too. If you use in a bath, be very careful as they are hot oils and can burn you. Have Olive Oil or another fatty oil close by so you can apply to stinging areas. I once got in a bath with 77 drops of cinnamon and instead of being a hot bath it became icy cold and the most wonderful experience. The bath was full of all this love instead of anger. It only happened once. Be prepared for hot hot hot! Diffusing will also get to the anger but you will find yourself angry for hours or days while a bath is much shorter and effective.
