Favourite essential oils for emotional support

Blog post - Favourite essential oils for emotional support

Here's the low-down on why using essential oils for emotional support can work so well, and my favourite oils to use for this purpose when starting out.

Why do I use essential oils for emotional support?

I really appreciate having my essential oils on hand for emotional support. Because while sometimes I seemingly I have it all together, at others it can feel like an emotional shit show reenactment.

During the latter I cling for sanity's sake to this simple thought: That this too shall pass. And invoke my now steadfast policy of being gentle & kind & loving with myself (as opposed to just talking superficially about doing it; a common pitfall that).

Cue the entrance of my essential oils for emotional support, my BFFs. Oh how they embrace & soothe me - or when required - cajole & give me an energising feelgood kick up the arse. I use them both proactively & reactively at different times 🙂

Essential oils work with the brain to affect emotions

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).

Our 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 processing 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 can have such profound physiological and psychological effects.
