How does aromatherapy work on our emotions?
I was always skeptical about how essential oils could have any real impact on our emotions. When I first started using essential oils it was for a physical ailment and I hadn’t really entertained them as any deeper than that. However, have you ever wondered why a simple smell can provoke a strong emotion or trigger a specific memory? Our sense of smell is our fastest track down memory lane.
I recall the first time I smelled wild orange essential oil and it seriously was so amazing how it took me back to watching my brothers play footy and sharing oranges at half time with them. I was about 5 years old and this was a special memory for me as the innocence and joy of being was real. Oh, and I loved my brothers immensely so anything they were into I loved too – even the oranges at half time.
With our varied and oftentimes high and low emotional levels using pure therapeutic essential oils to support healthy emotions is a wonderfully empowering resource. Essential oils can provide us with a choice to support and encourage our emotional well being by creating a foundation for transformation. Simply, as they interact with the brain they can assist in renewal, regeneration or change of thought. When we deepen with these plants in a bottle we support our body, mind and soul in a harmonious way. Using essential oils for healing can be explained in 5 stages.
1/ Healing the physical body.
2/ Healing the heart.
3/ Release of limiting beliefs.
4/ Increase of consciousness, spiritual connection and awareness
5/ Inspiration and fulfilment of life purpose.
When working with emotional balance and wellbeing often we look first at the physical side of our challenges and omit the emotional turbulence that could be underlying. By sharing the categories of plants and elements with you my intention is to give you a broad idea of how the categories of plants can support you in stages 2-5 above. I have listed quite a few plants/oils however this list is incomplete as there are so many more that I could cover. This is really just a starting point.
