An Overview of the Vibrational Frequency of Essential Oils

Robyn Openshaw, MSW - Jun 30, 2018 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

The vibrational frequency of essential oils is measured as the highest among the natural substances. It is found in petals, stems, roots, or other parts of the plant. Known as the alternative to pharmaceuticals, essential oils have also gained popularity throughout the years. So, if you’re wondering how the vibrational frequency correlates to essential oils’ benefits, read the article below. It features an excerpt from my book, Vibe: Unlock the Energetic Frequencies of Love, Health & Success, by Simon & Schuster, 2017.

Here’s What You Need to Know About the Essential Oils’ Vibrational Frequency

Herbs Vs. Essential Oils

Herbs vs Essential Oils | An Overview of the Vibrational Frequency of Essential Oils

Herbs — the dried stems, roots, or flowers of medicinal plants — were the gold standard in natural healing for many years until recently. The properties of essential oils were studied and found to be many times more potent than the dried whole plant.

Advantages of Herbs over Essential Oils:

  • Herbs are less expensive and available at any natural products store and online.
  • You don’t have to worry about what else is in the formula, besides the one herb or several in a blend.

The Popularity of Essential Oils

More than 98% of essential oils in the world are produced for flavorings or perfume, and they do not have a therapeutic effect. As the use of oils becomes more popular, I believe we will see fewer false “certifications” and higher quality standards. Then, there will be more options in the market.

Another reason why that essential oils are so popular is because they have been marketed as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. (America’s honeymoon with the pharmaceutical industry is over. We’ve watched drugs claim lives of folks close to us and cure almost nothing. We’re looking for something better.)

What’s in Essential Oils?

Many essential oil brands claim to be “pure” when, in fact, independent labs show they have many synthetic chemicals in them. Those who sell them often simply repeat the marketing information given to them by the manufacturer. Finally, there are certified organic oils coming into the market, and anything different than certified organic is nothing more than marketing claims.

Measuring the Vibrational Frequency of Essential Oils

Gary Young, founder of Young Living and widely considered the father of the modern essential oils movement, was measuring the vibrational frequency of essential oils long before talk of vibration hit the mainstream. He measured basil oil at 52 Hz of energetic frequency, while other oils are even higher, including rose oil at an amazing 320 Hz.

I am unaware of any other physical substance on earth with such a high frequency. Organic essential oils, then, may be a part of your strategy to raise your ViQ. With high-vibe plants as your primary food sources, you may want to consider having on hand organic high-vibe plant oils as medicine as well.

Plants as Medicine

Plants As Medicine | An Overview of the Vibrational Frequency of Essential Oils

The plant world holds the keys to many natural anti-inflammatory compounds, grounding compounds, and even cell-selective cytotoxic compounds that kill cancer cells but not healthy cells.

The world of plants provides many solutions that human beings and other living things can leverage to solve problems and to maintain health. After all, the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food.” We’ve strayed far from the idea that plants are our medicine since the discovery that chemically altering a plant substance can make you a billion dollars.

It is also true that synthetic drugs, virtually across the board, harm your vibration as they are not natural substances and have a very low vibrational frequency. Your body does not assimilate or eliminate chemicals efficiently or completely, and residues build up in your organs and tissues and cause health issues.

The Rise of the Essential Oils Industry

The modern essential oils industry is currently at $5 billion and is projected to be $12 billion by 2025. I do have a concern that, collectively, we’re moving from a belief that a synthetic drug will solve our every problem to a slightly revised belief that a bottle of oil will solve our every problem.

Our base-level focus must be on an organic, mostly plant-based, whole-foods diet. The 320 Hz rose oil is very expensive, of course, and makes a lovely perfume. But essential oils range from 50 Hz to more than 300 Hz, according to Young’s research. Since oils are the highest energetic part of plants, it’s a concentration in high vibrational frequency and may be a useful part of your goal to improve your grounding and your high, consistent, steady frequency.


To understand how the vibrational frequency of essential oils affects the mind and the human body, check out this instrumental piece made of frequencies in harmony with rose oil from Creative Sound’s channel:

Many among us, in the age of quick fixes, simply want something that requires no effort on our part. So, while essential oils can be beneficial because of its components and high vibrational frequency, I hope you don’t see them as the new “pill for every ill.”

Note: The information source I trust most, about how to use essential oils safely and effectively, is the work of Dr. Eric Zielinski. He’s a researcher, author of The Healing Power of Essential Oils: Soothe Inflammation, Boost Mood, Prevent Autoimmunity, and Feel Great in Every Way.

“Dr. Z” is brand-neutral and does not sell essential oils. His information is evidence-based, to help you find great ways to use your oils, to treat symptoms, replace toxic personal care products and home cleaning products, to flavor your food, and so much more.

He has a free video masterclass to teach you how to use oils as your primary “medicine cabinet” effectively, safely, and to benefit the environment.

    I read that Idaho Blue Spruce has a frequency of 580 MHz!

  3. Nathan says:

    How are vibrational frequencies of oils/plants measured scientifically?

    Also, how do these affect us once applied or consumed?

    Finally, what is the frequency of Palo Santo oil? It has long been used in rituals to ward off negative energy

    Thank you!
