How are essential oils different from Sacraments?
Sacramental oils have been consecrated by the bishop for use in Sacramental practices. They contain essential oils mixed with olive oil. Essential oils should not be used as anointing oils unless consecrated for this purpose explicitly by a priest. We recommend that you ask a well formed Catholic priest for guidance in this area.
Should I have my oils blessed?
We recommend that you bless your oils as you do your food before regular use in your home and wellness efforts. Consult a solidly formed Catholic priest about whether or not he will bless oils for you to use to anoint your own family members.

Can anyone pray the rosary?
The Prayer of the Rosary is a rich and long standing Christian tradition. Both Catholics and non-Catholics alike have found deep blessing through this prayer. It is first and foremost a reflection on the life of Christ and how we can imitate him in the spirit of His Blessed Mother who walked so closely with Him through His life. We encourage everyone to discover or rediscover the rosary through our Family Rosary Chanted. We will unpack the rosary in a beautiful and simple way. You can discover great quotes about the promises and power of the rosary here.
How do I place oils on my aromaRosaries?
Simply drop 1 to 2 drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand and massage over the surface of your rosary paying close attention to massage into the lava rock. Essential oils are very strong and over time can deteriorate even the most robust metals and ceramics. Avoid applying too much essential oil at anyone time. Our rosaries should support daily application. IF you choose to use oils other than the ones provided, we can not guarantee outcomes as most oils on the market today contain adulterations and additives that can effect the life of the rosary and your health.
