Instead of trusting in the Divine, these individuals unconsciously block Divine aid, choosing instead to live by their own efforts. Arborvitae addresses the need to control one’s outcomes in life. It invites individuals to live with peace and joy by trusting in the abundant flow of Divine grace.
Arborvitae is also a grounding oil which teaches that Divinity is all around us. God’s grace can be felt and experienced here on earth; it is not distant or separate. God can help us find balance in our lives and know what we should hold close and what we should release.
Arborvitae’s Latin name means “to sacrifice.” This oil invites individuals to sacrifice their personal will and ambitions for a far more fulfilling way of living.
