WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautiful and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. 

When you are overwhelmed with grief or sadness, need to be energized and motivated, or need calming and peaceful feelings throughout your day, essential oils can be helpful in managing your mood. 

 

As you may know, each essential oil has its own unique chemical makeup. The chemical design of an essential oil determines what it is useful for.  When it comes to aromatherapy, essential oils can be used to create specific emotional responses depending on their chemical makeup.

 

When an essential oil is inhaled, it travels through the nose and is processed by the portion of the brain that is responsible for controlling our sense of smell. From there, aromatic pathways connect the scent to the part of our brain where memories and experiences are stored. As the aroma travels through aromatic pathways, memories are triggered, giving us an emotional response.

 

Because everyone has different memories and life experiences, each of us will have a different response when using essential oils for managing our emotions. No two people will have the same exact response to an oil, but if you use the correct oils, it is easy to manage mood and emotions using the aroma of essential oils. 

 

First, one of the biggest reasons to use essential oils for mood management is that they are natural, safe substances that won’t cause harmful problems, or endanger your health and body. Many of the substances and sources we use to manage stress or deal with our emotions can end up hurting us in other ways. Using essential oils for mood management provides a safe and simple way to deal with complex emotions that are constantly changing. 

 

Second, essential oils provide a great way to quickly alter your mood. In many cases, you can start to feel the calming, soothing, or uplifting effects of an essential oil from the moment that you open the bottle. Inhaling essential oils, applying them to the skin, or diffusing them in the air allows you to quickly alter your mood because the oil will generate an emotional response within the brain from the first inhale. 

 

Lastly, essential oils provide the user with a convenient way to manage mood nearly any time of day and in any location. While there are other healthy ways to manage our emotions—speaking with friends or a counselor, doing physical activities, prayer, or giving ourselves a break by taking a moment for yourself —these options aren’t always practical right in the moment when we wish to alter our mood. However, essential oils provide a simple way to manage your emotions while at work, home, school, or in practically any circumstance. 

 

Now that you’ve had a little introduction to the history and science of emotional aromatherapy, you might be wondering how exactly to use essential oils to manage your emotions. When it comes to aromatherapy, essential oils can basically be categorized into one of two categories—uplifting and calming. Calming essential oils mostly consist of floral oils due to their chemical makeup. Uplifting essential oils are usually in the citrus, spice, or mint family because these plants produce oils with invigorating, uplifting, and energizing aromas.

 

This Emotional Aromatherapy Wheel breaks down the emotional effects of essential oils even further. The chemical makeup and unique plant part of each essential oil gives it grounding, soothing, calming, renewing, harmonizing, energizing, warming, or uplifting properties. When you want to produce a specific feeling or emotion, you can choose the essential oil that best fits your needs.

 

Because essential oils provide such a powerful way to influence the emotions, dōTERRA created the Emotional Aromatherapy System with essential oil blends designed to target specific emotions. Each essential oil blend in the Emotional Aromatherapy System uses specific plant extracts and chemical components to help promote feelings of motivation, happiness, peace, comfort, and more. 

 

Motivate - When you are feeling cynical, doubtful, or frustrated - fresh, invigorating blend that will help dispel negative feelings and give you the motivation you need to press forward.
