This course, the Advanced Color/Crystal Aromatherapy Course, encompasses dual healing modalities. We developed this course due to our belief in the efficacy of combining natural/vibrational therapies.Why Combine Color/Crystal Therapy and Aromatherapy?
In the holistic health care field many healing modalities have become the subject of interest and study for healthcare providers, holistic practitioners and the general populace alike. Many are finding that the combination of two or more therapies brings quicker, more complete relief from physical, emotional, spiritual and mental maladies than does one modality alone. For the purposes of this discussion, I am going to focus on the practice of using Aromatherapy to complement and enhance the benefits of Color and Crystal Therapy.Crystals and Aromatherapy - what have they got to do with one another?
Good question with a very simple answer. Essential oils, like color and crystals and like us all, are pure energy. Essential oils work on all levels of the human body. Each essential oil has its own properties which work with various body systems and organs - just like the chakras, color and crystals.
When working with a client, you can place a crystal programmed to healing into the essential oil that you have selected for your client. It is best to leave this overnight before using on or giving to the client. You can also recommend colors for the client to wear or even provide small color swatches of cloth to which your chosen essential oil has been applied. Which color or crystal you choose depends on the symptoms or illnesses a client may have. Each client can have a specific blend made up for them. Conversely, when working with crystal or color energies with your client, you can add a drop of an appropriate essential oil directly to the crystal or colored item you are utilizing to enhance the effects and increase the benefits of the color/crystal therapy.
Many people are aware of the positive aspects of Aromatherapy. Stress release, a complete feeling of well-being, total relaxation, and relief from chronic complaints are some areas that this treatment targets. Now, imagine using color and crystals to complement the above effects. By combining the healing properties of Aromatherapy with the calming and healing energies of Color and Crystal therapy, clients undergo a complete holistic experience.
Each color vibrates at a specific, individual frequency, as do the glands and organs of the body. Each color corresponds to a specific area of the body. Color vibrates true to frequency. It never deviates.
Color is like a vitamin. If you had a Vitamin C deficiency you would increase your intake of Vitamin C. If you had an excess of Vitamin C then you would decrease your intake of Vitamin C. Color works the same way.
As an example, if you need to Lose Weight, then increase the color blue in your life. Do you get Migraine Headaches? Then increase the color red or indigo in your life. What about depression? You can decrease the color indigo. You can positively affect many areas of your life and health, through Color and Color Therapy.
Crystals have their own particular vibration of a precise and measurable intensity. This vibration attunes itself to human vibration better than any other gem or mineral. Quartz crystal is used to amplify, clarify and store energy. When you create a thought, you can amplify and clarify it by using a crystal. Quartz has long been recognized for its ability to produce electrical impulses. (Pressure on Quartz crystal generates a minute electrical charge called piezoelectricity.) It is said that crystal has the ability to rebroadcast energy from the Universal Mind so your “inner self” can pick it up, granting you heightened perception. A crystal is a focus for this knowledge and help, and it magnifies and transmits psychic energies and healing powers.
Essential oils complete the holistic approach by affecting the mind. Due to the fact that these oils stimulate the limbic system, the brain’s own healing mechanism is triggered. By inhaling these fragrances during therapy, the scents’ own healing power enters the bloodstream. When these oils activate the olfactory bulb, it sends electrical impulses to the Limbic system, which affects emotional behavior. This is why people feel invigorated when they smell Rosemary and Basil, and calmed by Chamomile and Jasmine.
This is the main focus of ‘Color/Crystal Aromatherapy’ - the term we use to signify the combination of Color/Crystal and Aromatherapy methods: to combine several of the body’s senses in effectual healing. Other orthodox medical practices can temporarily ‘heal the client’ but usually fails to help the client ‘to heal themselves’. This is where Color/Crystal Aromatherapy excels as a treatment. By using scent and the vibrational energies of color and crystals together, the body’s healing is heightened not only by the therapist, but also by the client.

Aromatherapy, sometimes also referred to as aromatic or scent medicine, is the art of healing the body using naturally distilled essences from different parts of plants to improve and enhance your everyday emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. These essences are known as essential oils.
Our sense of smell is about 10,000 times stronger than our sense of taste, but it is truly under appreciated. The olfactory system of your brain has a memory of scents and the longest recall of all the senses.Just think… does the smell of baking bread bring back vivid memories of visits with a relative in your childhood.. ever catch a whiff of the cologne/perfume of an old lover? Memories that are attached to scent are stronger!!!!
Scent also stimulates the limbic system of the brain which responds by releasing neuro-chemicals. Such as Seratonin and Endorphins. These chemicals calm us.. arouse us… alleviate discomfort.Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment, the aim of which is to produce a physical, spiritual, emotional and mental sense of well-being through inhalation and massage of essential oils. Essential oils are derived from plants and are chosen for their particular therapeutic qualities that are stimulating, refreshing and sedative.Aromatherapy is also referred to as the fragrant art of using specially selected aromatic oils for therapeutic purposes. It is one of the fastest growing complementary therapies in the world and is recognized as one of the most natural and holistic treatments available today.
Aromatherapy does not aim to treat disease. Its aim is to release feelings of well-being, harmony and improved mental and physical health.COLOR/CRYSTAL THERAPY:
The history of color healing goes back over 5,000 years, from the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Native American’s, and Tibetans to present day practitioners and healers.
The ancient Egyptians wore amulets of colored stones. They wore red to treat diseases and building strength, yellow to create happiness, and green to increase Fertility.
Today we use blue light on Newborn babies with jaundice in our hospitals.
We know that some prisons use pink rooms to calm the more violent criminal. Also, many police stations use blue rooms for their interrogations, as the suspect is more apt to tell the truth in a blue room.
Quartz Crystals have been used since ancient times as powerful healing objects and Meditation tools, and to make medicinal elixirs. Wise adepts have long known about their qualities and have used Crystals for powerful talismans and amulets. Throughout history people have valued the beauty of Quartz Crystals and have used them for ornamental decoration. References to Crystals are found in both the Old and New Testament, and in many other sacred teachings throughout the world.
You can learn how to handle and work with Crystals to heal yourself, others, and the Earth. Crystals have long been revered for use in magick, for psychic development, and to see into the “hidden dimensions” that permeate physical reality. It is said that crystal has the ability to rebroadcast energy from the Universal Mind so your “inner self” can pick it up, granting you heightened perception. A crystal is a focus for this knowledge and help, and it magnifies and transmits psychic energies and healing powers.Why Healing With Color and Crystals?
