Emotional Aromatherapy with doTERRA Essential Oils

One of my absolute favourite ways to use our doTERRA Essential Oils is with our (multiple) diffusers. Whether at home or at the office I will typically have it running! I even now have one for my van 😉

doTERRA created this beautiful emotions wheel with the brand new Emotional Aromatherapy Blends they announced in October 2015!  I have added in our other blends which are the core mood management blends doTERRA has.

As you look around the wheel you can see various feelings you may have, as you look at the feeling you can then see which blend may best support your body in working through that feeling.

One of the oils which is not on this wheel and is a single oil is one of my absolute favourites – Wild Orange! This oil is incredibly powerful for invigorating someone or calming anxious or worried feelings! A must have in my mind for supporting emotional health!

Have you ever wondered why a simple smell can provoke a strong emotion or trigger a specific memory? I know the smell of fresh homemade bread reminds me of my sweet mother. The dōTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy Kit™ is the perfect example of this, and here’s why it works so well:

Essential oils are simply a mixture of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory (smell) receptors in the nose. Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response. The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
