Manifesting benefits from you being open and willing to be vulnerable. It nudges you to ask hard questions about the life you want. It draws out your deepest desires, fears, and insecurities as you become more honest with yourself.
Essential oils can be a gentle tool that makes manifesting easier. Aromatherapy is known for filling your environment with peace and clarity. It’s thought to have the power to improve moods and emotions, as well as physical health.
One way aromatherapy works is by stimulating the olfactory system, which is linked to the limbic system in the brain, where emotions are regulated. This means that the aroma of essential oils can influence emotions in a positive way.
Essential oils can also be used to support spiritual healing. When used in conjunction with meditation and prayer, they can help to create a sacred space and foster connection with the universe. They help open the heart and release emotional blocks, to restore balance and harmony.
Essential oils and manifesting can be a powerful combination for creating a life of abundance and joy. When used in combination, the two can create clarity and focus to realize the life of your dreams. Frankincense can help you ground as you begin visualizing the life you want. Bergamot can give you courage to turn those dreams into action. Lavender will be there for you when you’re ready to relax and reflect on how far you’ve come.
Personally, learning about aromatherapy was overwhelming at first. I bought my first set of essential oils and they sat on the counter for weeks. The information was endless. I didn’t know where to start. Determined, I decided to memorize their benefits. I thought it would be easier to buy flashcards, but they didn’t exist. I considered others might have this same issue as me, and I was right. This motivated me to design modern, colorful cards that made learning about oils simple and easy. From that moment on, I’ve been developing fun products that have helped thousands of people heal and grow.
To this day, my favorite set of cards are designed to help with manifestation the most – the aromatherapy deck. Each card shares an emotion and the essential oils to support it. They’re soft and beautiful with a comforting affirmation. With each card I created, I tried to empathize with the emotion. I wanted the color and tone to match the emotion.
When the idea came for the essential oil cards, my heart fluttered. It was a whisper from the universe. I had deeply wanted to be an entrepreneur and this idea was a manifestation of my heart. It all started from having the courage to ask the universe for something and trust that it would happen. I continue to seek moments like these and appreciate them when they come. I hope you do the same.
Lessons I’ve Learned Through Manifesting and Aromatherapy
1. Start Small
Manifesting can start small. It could be a smile on the train. A coffee order that went wrong, but tasted better. An unexpected discount. A bird singing just for you.
These cherished moments make life more beautiful. They’re evidence that manifesting is possible and your dreams are possible. This evidence will build confidence and trust in yourself. Add a few drops of essential oil to a diffuser to create a calming and focused energy before beginning your manifestation practice.

2. Be True to Yourself
Quiet the voices. Listen to your heart. What makes it flutter? Sit in the vulnerability. You don’t have to ask for what your neighbor wants. It doesn’t have to be a million dollars or a Maserati. It could be a donut. You can ask for whatever feels authentic to you. Remember, you are worth it.
Use lemongrass with bergamot to bring happiness and harmony. Black pepper is another great way to release hidden emotions and reveal your authentic self. It provides feelings of self-confidence, increasing your inner strength.

Take a deep breath. Release any fears or anxiety. Manifesting can seem daunting. Just remember that the doors will open in their own time. Be present and ready for the whispers.
Create a calm environment by mediating, painting, watching the sunset or taking a hot shower. During these activities you can diffuse lavender, frankincense or sandalwood to promote relaxation. These oils can help you feel more grounded and in touch with your inner feelings.

5. Be Specific
Being clear when manifesting allows you to create a roadmap so you know exactly what needs to be done in order to achieve your desired outcome. It will help you focus your energy and intention on a specific outcome rather than getting distracted with other possibilities.
An essential oil blend to help with the manifestation process could include a combination of orange, peppermint, and lavender essential oils. Orange essential oil is known to increase optimism and creativity, which can be helpful in manifesting. Peppermint essential oil is known to increase energy and focus, which can also be helpful in manifestation. Finally, lavender essential oil can help to reduce stress, allowing you to remain open and relaxed while manifesting.
At some point, you’ll want to let go. Trust in what’s to come. Resistance can be normal. Try meditating on the root cause of where it’s coming from. Create a safe place for yourself. Use essential oils to open your heart and surrender.

7. Bet on Yourself
The most dangerous action I’ve taken was allowing others’ opinions to lead my decisions. I’ve learned the hard way that I will not lean on someone else for my happiness. This is your life and only you are responsible for making it great. You are powerful and capable to make it happen.
Create a satchel to carry with you for an extra boost of confidence:
- 5 Drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
- 5 Drops of Geranium Essential Oil
- 5 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil
- 1/4 Cup of Sea Salt
- 1/4 Cup of Dried Sage
Instructions: Begin by filling a small cloth satchel with the salt and sage. Next, add the essential oils to the satchel. Gently mix all the ingredients together to ensure they are completely blended. Place the satchel in a sunny spot and leave it for one hour to absorb the energy of the sun. Finally, carry the satchel with you as a reminder of your intention and use it as a tool for manifesting your goals and increasing your confidence.
8. Ask for Help
You are loved, and never alone. It’s okay to ask for help whether it be from the universe, family or friends. Vulnerability is a key to happiness and having a life you want. Take risks. Open up. Share. It will get easier and easier with time.
Fearless Diffuser Blend:
- 5 Drops of Orange

9. Find Gratitude
Diffuse lavender and reflect on joyful moments from your day. Maybe make it fun and buy a new journal. By doing this, you are creating a positive mindset and vibration that will attract more of the same into your life. When your thoughts and feelings are aligned with gratitude, you are able to manifest more of the things that you desire.
Add a few drops of essential oil to your journal or to make it feel special:
- Cedarwood is known to be a grounding oil, which can help to bring balance and clarity to the mind. This can help to promote feelings of gratitude by allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of life.
- Frankincense is known to be a powerful aid in creating a sense of peace and relaxation. It can help to reduce stress and anxiety and promote feelings of contentment and satisfaction.
Reward yourself. It reinforces the belief that you can manifest what you desire. It helps create a positive feedback loop in your brain, which can motivate you to keep manifesting more things. Rewards also help to reinforce the behavior associated with manifesting and they can act as a reminder that you have the power to create the life you desire.
