Ever Been Stuck in an Emotional Rut? Essential Oils to the Rescue!

How You Feel

How we feel matters--yes, literally emotions become matter. Candice Pert, in her book, Molecules of Emotions tells us that every single thought we have stimulates our body to produce a variety of protein called peptides. Peptides are among the body’s key “information substances” and when they flood the body with message specific cells our bodies produce a physical reaction that can  “affect our mind, our emotions, our immune system, our digestion and other bodily functions simultaneously.”

Next time something disappointing happens in your life and you feel yourself sliding down the slippery sad slope reach for your favorite essential oil and breathe in deeply. The aromatic chemistry of essential oils have the amazing ability to get into the body through the nasal passages directly to the limbic system--the emotional area of the brain, bypassing the thinking/analytical brain, also known as “monkey mind”.  When I find myself in that place I often choose  the uplifting qualities of Bergamot essential oil. Daniel Mc Donald, author of Emotional Healing and Essential Oils,  calls Bergamot the oil of self-acceptance.  

“Bergamot relieves feels of despair, self-judgement, and low self-esteem. It supports individuals in need of self-acceptance and self-love. it invites individuals to see life with more optimism.”
