Essential oils can quickly enter the bloodstream through the skin and with aromatherapy- inhalation. Essential oils affect the ‘limbic’ part of the brain which connects to emotions and hormones. They are truly nature’s gifts. Simply taking a moment to “pause” can shift your awareness to being present and to the breath. Those moments of well being are the ingredients to self care and compassion. I find these shifts in awareness bring a sense of peace and inner calm. How about you?
Essential Oils for emotional support:
Jasmine, Ylang Ylang
Lavender, orange, geranium
Grief and Sadness
Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, Rosemary, Lavender, Clary sage, Geranium
Mental Clarity and focus
Mental stress and fatigue
Essential oils are best used when mixed with a carrier oil such as sesame, fractionated coconut oil, or jojoba.
Two to three drops per oil mixed with a carrier works well behind the neck, ears, or chest. You may also mix oil into a massage oil for your body- up to fifteen drops per 16 oz. A diffuser with a cool mist works well in the home or office. The company “Now” makes cool mist diffusers.
Holistic practices such as aromatherapy do not replace talking with a friend or therapist.
