A List of Essential Oils for Astral Projection [DIY]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

If you are into astral projection and if you’d like to explore the hidden side of your subconscious, you might need help opening your mind and your intuition to the astral level. Essential oils can help you with that!

So, let’s learn more about the best essential oils for astral projections and how to use them.


Utilizing essential oils can help stimulate the pineal gland, often associated with the third eye, enhancing your psychic abilities and spiritual awareness during astral projection.

Certain oils like Frankincense, Sandalwood, and Mugwort contain unique properties that can facilitate a deeper and more vivid astral experience, with each oil offering distinct benefits for your astral journey.

Frankincense, known for its sacred and meditative properties, can heighten your spiritual connection; Sandalwood offers grounding and protective qualities, while Mugwort enhances dream recall and lucidity, aiding astral travelers in navigating the ethereal realms.

These essential oils can be applied topically, diffused, or inhaled to align your energies and prepare for astral projection.

Opening your third eye

The Third eye regulates our faculty of clairvoyance, intuition, and other extrasensory faculties. It is the seat of all awareness-raising processes. It helps to understand our dreams, desires, and visions. It controls the other chakras of the physical body and the sensory system.

It helps to overcome the impositions that the authorities and the community have dictated to control our destiny.

Our actions are 80% dictated by the subconscious and only 20% by the mind. The third eye is the abode of the subconscious, the meeting point between the intellect and spiritual wisdom. This chakra helps us carry out our mission in our current incarnation.

We have, in fact, been incarnated to learn particular teaching through our physical body (matter). Once we have assimilated this teaching, we can break down the patterns derived from this situation and fully dedicate ourselves to our mission.

The third eye (The Ajna Chakra) allows us to progress, observe events with greater neutrality, visualize our future, and attract favorable conditions for our evolution. When it is in balance, it allows you to develop intuition, intelligence, clarity, sensitivity, patience, tolerance, trust, the ability to visualize.

It is decompensated when we remain too tied to the past. If we close ourselves in depression and sadness, we feel happiness “only if” … if we stop spiritually or we close ourselves in hypocrisy.

Ajna, which in Sanskrit means “mastery”, is related to light. This chakra illuminates the path, brings the spirit into matter, and allows you to acquire spiritual mastery. It asks us to listen to our inner voice, to practice visualization techniques to develop our creative abilities, to base our actions and our decisions on faith and not on our experience, to meditate every day to create silence within us, to connect with the Universe and to experience unconditional love.

If the Third eye is active, we can create harmony between the physical, mental, and soul body, exploring the astral level without anything holding us back.

Essential oils for astral projection

The main essential oils for astral projection are Dill, Hyssop var. Montana, Rosemary in Verbenone, Salvia officinal.

The best way to choose the right oil is to let yourself be instinctively attracted by its scent. The essential oil will choose you and act for your greatest good. Depending on the oil you use, you will be able to identify the aspect on which you need to focus your attention.

You can then simply smell it several times a day, put it in an essence diffuser, and let its aroma envelop you, or you can put a drop of essential oil directly on the third eye.

Main characteristics of the essential oils

Dill: Psychic invigorating in case of lack of concentration, intellectual fatigue, and psychic tensions. It is especially good at re-calibrating the nervous system in cases of seasonal depression and lack of confidence. It dissolves phobias, fears, and combats disappointments. It helps with emotional healing. It acts as a “soul balm”. If you want to embark on an astral projection journey but feel your energy is a bit low, this is the best essential oil for you.

Hyssop: Nervous tonic in case of anguish, anxiety, lack of concentration, latent depression, physical and mental fatigue, nervousness and inner agitation, oppression, and stress. It conveys purity and clarity of spirit. It purifies and aligns all subtle bodies with each other. It can help you develop better intuition and perception, activate the third eye and invite meditation. If you are going to focus on meditation and you want to activate the third eye for astral projection, rely on this essential oil!

Rosemary: Strengthens self-confidence, physically and psychically, and spiritually. It helps control emotions, transmits spiritual clarity and inner strength. Strengthens the ability to memorize, analyze and synthesize. Helps develop higher self-awareness and spiritual enhancement.

Sage: Bring wisdom, clarity, and calm. It strengthens the memory and dissolves mental stiffness.

There are some essential oils that, outside of meditative practices, help us in everyday life to cleanse the mind from the dross of superfluous worries and thoughts, favoring greater lucidity. These plants help us to keep the path we decide to take, cultivate a higher thought, and maintain a positive predisposition.

Mint, Thyme, Rosemary, and Basil are plants with a marked cephalic action: they’re stimulants of the nervous system, they promote concentration and memory. They are suitable for fostering a more rational and lucid attitude, but also one that is open and courageous.

These oils are recommended in cases of mental fatigue and stress to lighten the load of tension and brighten the ideas.

Lemongrass helps to overcome stress-related somatizations, to get out of situations of stagnation and closure, to remove recurring thoughts. Rebalancing the nervous system, these plants increase psychic power in a direction of well-being that greatly influences the body.

How to use these oils?

Environmental diffusion is certainly one of the most advisable tools for this purpose.

If this is not possible, a handkerchief with a few drops of essential oil to take with you is certainly an effective solution. It is not recommended to smell the bottle that contains the oil directly, in this way you would only perceive the top notes of the plant or the more volatile ones.

Another valid method is application on certain body parts: after diluting the essential oil in a carrier oil, massage the wrists, chest, forehead, temples, and the nape of the neck right before embarking on an astral journey.
