Essential Oils and Emotions

Hello friends! I want to talk about EO’s and emotions, specifically negative emotions that can get stuck.

We all have things we have gone through, areas in our lives we have had to look at in order to move forward in business and in life. Emotions are big in all aspects of our lives and can make or break our day in a heartbeat. We carry the burden of this emotional baggage around sometimes for years! And my friends, it’s damaging your body as well as your mind and spirit.

I want to identify 10 of the most commonly suck emotions that we have all felt at some time or another:
1. Anxiety
2. Disgusted
3. Grief-stricken
4. Criticized
5. Unsupported
6. Unsafe
7. Overwhelmed
8. Worthless
9. Helpless
10. Conflicted

I am sure you can look back and check off events in your life where you felt each one of these emotions, sometimes together! Our society tells us we must act a certain way, don’t rock the boat, so many times our fear forces us to stuff these emotions down. We will deal with them later, is a common thought. We see ourselves as making much ado about nothing. How many times have you told yourself it is “ridiculous to get upset over this!” or “not worth upsetting dad” to bring up. Those types of situations cause you to be at risk for trapping emotions. Emotions want a “voice” and if they are not acknowledged, they won’t go away. But carrying around this excess emotional weight can have consequences to our health.

Negative emotional energy can not only keep us up at night, but it can make us really sick. Everything has a frequency, including our bodies. When we are working with less than optimum frequency levels we tend to start feeling worn out, achy, we get sick.

Disease loves a low frequency body! And unless we truly release these stuck emotions we will find ourselves operating less than optimum in all areas of our lives. Oils are a great place to help push the process along as we work on releasing these emotions. There are several amazing oils that can be diffused or worn that help us cope better. The other part of using our oils is they help us take the steps we need to shed these emotional overloads and finally unpack some of that emotional suitcase we lug around. They may help us feel better about asking for help, eating better, etc..

Releasing these stuck emotions can be a daunting task, but once we start looking at them for what they are we can learn to let them go. Life becomes easier and things tend to fall into place faster once we are no longer slaves to whatever stuck emotion we may have.

Instead of backing away from negative emotions, accept them. Acknowledge how you are feeling without rushing to change your emotional state. Many people find it helpful to breathe slowly and deeply while learning to tolerate strong feelings or to imagine the feelings as floating clouds, as a reminder that they will pass. I wear Valor for these moments. I put a drop on my diffuser bracelet and when I need that breath I can use my Valor to help my mind work through the situation.

There are many different oils that can help. Some of these are:
Valor
Peace and Calming
Bergamot
Orange

You may also try doing mindfulness exercises to help you become aware of your present experience without passing judgment on it. Using Present Time oil during this practice can have amazing effects at keeping you grounded in the moment. While diffusing your oil, one way to train yourself to adopt this state is to focus on your breathing while meditating and simply acknowledge any fleeting thoughts or feelings.

There are many healthy ways to work through emotions and feelings on our personal growth path. We are in the perfect position to utilize tools such as oils to help with this. So diffusing while working through things is one of the best things you can do on your path to accepting and releasing negative emotions, and then they can be viewed as a huge growth spurt rather than something to fear.

Some other oils to consider trying:
Release
Clarity
Inner Child
Frankincense
Peppermint

And don’t forget about raising that frequency! Some oils that can help with that are:

Idaho Blue Spruce (one of the highest frequencies!)
Rose
Helichrysum
Ravensara

Put a drop on top of your head every morning, use in linen sprays and spray your pillow before bed, diffuse…just some ideas on how you can use these to raise your frequency.

 

Here’s to getting unstuck and unpacking some of that baggage!
