Well, today is voting day in the USA. A historical election it is. I have sensed and felt so much tension and animosity within our nation and between my friends and neighbors. What I know is that even amidst turmoil and confusion, I can choose to be a good citizen for myself, my family, and my community. As I find opportunities to help and support those around me and to see the good, the world turns into a beautiful place. I am grateful to live in the USA and I am grateful for the freedom and opportunities that we enjoy! Within 5 years, I was able to move my family from poverty to prosperity. Opportunity is everywhere! For the last week I have been really diving into how the essential oils can help us with our mood and emotions. How amazing would it be if we could shift and change our moods and how we are feeling by simply smelling an essential oil! Guess what? It's possible! When we breath in aroma it goes through the olfactory part of our brain that then triggers different chemical reactions in the brain that release different chemicals and hormones. The only way to tap into our emotions and memories is through smell. If you think about it we can not touch, see, feel, or hear our emotions. It is through aroma that we can work through our emotional traffic! I loved the movie Inside Out! What a great visual for being able to identify how we are feeling and be able to work through the various layers of our emotions. My 6 year old will identify her mood by the different characters in the show. When she is happy, she will say, "I am Joy." How sweet is that! Even more wonderful is that she is able to identify what she is feeling. When we are aware than we can address the issue and do somethings to help us get to where we want to be.
Today I would like to share 6 oils that are powerfully effective at addressing our emotions. Different essential oils will trigger different chemicals in the brain. Citrus oils will be light and uplifting where the tree and root oils will be more grounding and comforting. Let's look at each of these blend.
