Balance Emotions with Essential oils

Essential oils have the ability to directly access and affect the brain’s limbic region, the center of emotion and memory. Many oils can be used to create a positive emotional state, help soothe grief, create an environment of relaxation at the end of a long day, and much more. Sometimes a busy schedule and the demands of daily life can make it nearly impossible to relax. Chronic stress can bring a host of health issues, including poor digestion, insomnia, weight gain, headaches, and more.  Do you sometimes toss and turn at night? Essential oil products can help soothe your mind and body, bringing tranquility and restfulness to your bedtime when occasional stresses or preoccupations keep you awake. Combat the emotional and physical toll of the stress in your life with our pure, relaxing essential oils.

The following essential oils and essential oil blends through diffusion, direct inhalation, and massage, have shown to help support and maintain overall emotional health.  They are listed by each emotion name, following which oils have shown to ease or promote each one.

 How do I choose what’s right for me?

There are so many oils listed for each emotion and yes, it can be a little overwhelming. I know that buying can be intimidating, but trust me, it’s SO worth it!  I was VERY skeptical in the beginning.  I was given my starter kit as a graduation present.  If you aren’t quite sure about oils, but would like to try them out, I would definitely recommend purchasing a Premium Started Kit.  This includes all the basics you need to begin such as a diffuser and the Everyday Essential Oil Kit.  The Everyday Essential oils include every home’s must haves, such as lavender, lemon, tea tree, frankincense, and more.  You save over $250 when you make this purchase!  Also, if you purchase the Premium Starter Kit, you will save 24% on all other Young Living oils and products (click here to learn why I choose Young Living Oils)! 

A great way to narrow down which ones you would like to purchase first is to self-reflect. Here are steps to decide which oils you would like to purchase to support your emotional health.

Step 1: Make a list of the most troublesome emotions

The best place to start is to reflect on why you seeking help at this time?  What emotions are you, or the person you are wanting to help, currently battling at this time? Unfortunately, most people aren’t having difficulties with only one emotion in their lives.  I recommend writing the top 2 to 5 emotions you feel may need so assistance.  

Step 1

Step 2: List oils only in your most worrisome emotion

To save time, only list the oils that are recommended for the emotion you are most experiencing.  It will make step 3 a lot easier!


Step 2

Step 3: Compare lists and Mark recurrent oils only

The third step is to look at your second most occuring emotion and as you review the list, ONLY mark oils you see n each one.  For instance,  Bergamont is listed as an oil used to help stress, as well as negativity; therefore, I checked my list.  I did not check Clary Sage, however, because it was listed for stress, but not negativity. Continue to follow this step until all lists are compared.

STEP 4: Highlight repeated oils

Now that you compared and mark the recurrent oils, you are able to see which oils are most needed for your personal emotional state.  Highlight each ones so you are able to clearly decipher which oils may be best to invest in, at this time. For instance, in the below list I can see oils I may want to purchase are bergamont, roman chamomile, joy, lavender, and peppermint.

Step 5Research and purchase

These steps are a great way to narrow down which oils may assist your current emotional needs, however, it is best to do your own research.  I personally prefer Young Living Essential Oils due to their seed to seal® promise of purity, as well as the integrity of the company (click here to learn why I choose Young Living Oils)!   Here are some resources to learn more about essential oils.
