Blog post - Favourite Essential Oils for Supporting Emotions

Why essential oils for emotional support?

I'm not alone in appreciating essential oils for emotional support ...because while sometimes it feels like seemingly I have it all together, at others it's an emotional shit show reenactment around here.

When I cling for sanity's sake to one simple thought: that this too shall pass. And invoke my now steadfast rule of being gentle & kind & loving with myself - as opposed to just talking superficially about doing that (a common pitfall that). This way - I promise - normal transmission really does resume so much faster. Plus, it's just so much more frigging pleasant than falling down those self-shaming, overthinking rabbit holes going nowhere good except in the ceaseless direction of futility.

I really LOVE my essential oils for supporting emotions though. We're BFFs, how they embrace & soothe me ...or when required, cajole & give me an energising feelgood kick up the arse.

Here's the low-down on why using essentials oils for supporting emotions can work so well …and my personal favourites to use for this when you decide to get started with oils yourself.

How essential oils work with your brain to affect emotions

Being a girly swot, I know this stuff. Inhaling an essential oil can be a powerful way to affect memory, hormones & emotions through our olfactory system (and also our sinuses, larynx, bronchial tubes and lungs come to that).

If science bores you then skip this bit, but in short... the olfactory system sends the impulses it gets from inhaling an oil to various different structures within our brain. This includes those that store & release emotional trauma, as well as process smell & stimuli, before passing them onto our limbic system. The limbic system is a part of our brain that deals with behavioural and emotional responses and memory. This is why essential oils have such profound physiological and psychological effects.
