Essential Oils for Spiritual and Emotional Support

Ive been meaning to do this post for some time but have been putting it off for a myriad of reasons. If you don’t already know me, people call me Melissa. I am a Certified Aromatherapist and help people from all walks of life find balance, health, and happiness with the aid of meditation and aromatherapy.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the holistic and therapeutic application of genuine essential oils for enhancing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health of the individual. Humans have always instinctively turned to plants for healing. We use aromatherapy for preventative reasons, to relieve stress, to uplift personal perceptions, to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation, and to support balanced hormones among other uses. It’s a complimentary therapy and should be used in conjunction with other things like meditation and even modern medicine in many cases.

Essential oils are comprised of naturally occurring chemicals that work in synergy with one another. Because essential oils evaporate quickly (known as being "volatile"), their molecules are easily inhaled. Without providing an intimidating lesson in olfaction (the science of the sense of smell), the inhalation of these naturally occurring synergistic chemicals provide triggers to our brain. These triggers effect our emotions. Inhalation of these wondrous molecules also provides physical benefit which may also work together to aid in our emotional state.

Aromatherapy for the emotions

Although aromatherapy should not be considered a miracle cure for serious emotional issues, the use of essential oils may assist, sometimes greatly, with particular emotional issues and emotional states. Additionally, the proper use of essential oils may enhance your emotional outlook and provide support and help balance your emotions during the day. The use of essential oils for emotional well-being is what is often first thought of when someone thinks of the term "aromatherapy." You will notice that many of the oils can address multiple emotional issues.
