More about Emotions

Some of the most popular questions we get asked regarding oils are how to use them to help manage emotions. Let’s start by exploring the science behind oils and emotions. I want you to be in charge of your emotions and actually, use them for good! Your emotions don’t have to control you. Get ready to release some negative emotions!!!

THE SCIENCE

We’re going to start with some basic science. This is only the tip of the iceberg but when we heard this info for the first time it blew our minds. It sheds so much light on how our emotions affect us and how oils can help.
A New York University study found the only way to release fear from the amygdala (part of the limbic system) is through smell.

Essential oil compounds can actually work to repair and reprogram cellular memory!

THE HOW

Focus on your emotion and your “why.” What situation, what event, what people- what is the “why”?
Then begin to let go of the negative emotion and start focusing on the opposite side of that emotion, or how you want to feel about the situation or memory.
If you are working through a deep-seated memory, this process will take time.

Now that you understand the root of your emotions, apply your oil and inhale it deeply. Begin to shift your focus to the positive. Focus on connecting and building memories and on releasing the expectations you’ve put on yourself.
Remember, everyone’s body and emotional responses are different. So try a few different oils to see which ones resonate best with you!

 

For more in-depth information, I recommend the book, Releasing Emotional Patterns With Essential Oils.

GUT HEALTH

You might think that it’s strange to talk about your digestive system in this class. But the truth is, your gut and your brain are tightly connected and they communicate back and forth all day long! It is important for you to drink water, eat whole food and get a good probiotic like Life 9.

Essential Oils & Emotions

Essential Oils & Emotions

Essential oils and Emotions

How can oils benefit our emotions?

Essential oils can penetrate cell membranes and cross the brain-blood barrier within SECONDS. This allows them to reach the emotional center of our brain, this is where all of our emotions are stored. Essential oils support the body to come back into balance without harmful side effects or chemical based products. They can have a powerful influence over how we think, how we feel and how we behave. Because of oils bringing balance to emotions, we can do that simply by smelling them, through scents.

The smells of nature leave me feeling uplifted and energized, even just taking a quick walk and getting a breath of fresh air. And nature is essentially what oils ARE so we are going to harness those feelings!

Where to start supporting your emotions with oils?

Let’s start with some of the basic oils. Each oil is incredibly versatile.

COPAIBA:

I add this to body butter or shaving cream!

+ Sweet, warm honey-like scent

+ Often used to improve moods

+ May help relax muscles

+ May help nervous irritability

+ May help on days you feel like you have the blues

+ May promote feelings of contentment and peace

 

DIGIZE:

At first thought, an oil blend designed for digestive discomfort may not come to mind when talking about oils and emotions. But for those who’s emotional stress plays a big part in stomach discomfort this would be a great oil for you to look into!

+ Includes oils such as Juniper which may help bring balance to emotions and the impact of stress of your digestive functions.

 

FRANKINCENSE: I could pretty much talk to you all day about my love for this oil. I use it daily.

LAVENDER:

I can’t think of hardly anything I DON’T use lavender for!

+ May promote restful night sleep

+ Calming

Studies have shown that just inhaling lemon essential oil can help with feelings of sadness. I love diffusing this in the morning and adding a drop to my water.

+ May help with clarity of thought

+ May be uplifting

+ May help with focus and concentration

 

PANAWAY:

Another essential oil you don’t think of right away when you’re thinking about emotions but it definitely has more uses than just helping soothe tired and sore muscles!

+ Cool and invigorating smell

This is one of our favorites in our home for using with laundry and diffusing to help cleanse the air but it also may have uses to help with our emotions!

+ Contains orange, lemon, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit which may be helpful in promoting feelings of happiness
