Nasturtium Essential Oil

Aromatherapy Uses

The powerful odor of nasturtiums lends us energy in times of physical demands. Smell the fresh flowers first thing on waking up. Even if you're too sleepy to visualize, you'll receive a great start on your day. The scent fully arouses your conscious mind and energizes the physical body.

Like black pepper, the scent can also be used with visualization to guard yourself or your home from physical attack and negative energy. Visualize its scent hovering around you (or your home) like an invisible shield.

Its magical influence are physical energy and protection.
