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.
