Essential Oils + Emotions
How can oils benefit our emotions?
Essential oils can penetrate cell membranes and cross the brain-blood barrier within SECONDS. This allows them to reach the emotional center of our brain, this is where all of our emotions are stored. Essential oils support the body to come back into balance without harmful side effects or chemical based products. They can have a powerful influence over how we think, how we feel and how we behave. Because of oils bringing balance to emotions, we can do that simply through smelling them, through scents.
If you think of even just a warm day at the beach, one of the first things that comes to mind for me is the smell of the salty air. It makes me feel uplifted just thinking about it. Or remembering the smell of your favorite foods and the fresh tree at Christmas time, memories bring me positive emotions just remembering the smells.
The smells of nature leave me feeling uplifted and energized, even just taking a quick walk and getting a breath of fresh air. And nature is essentially what oils ARE so we are going to harness those feelings!
Where to start supporting your emotions with oils?
Let’s start with your premium starter kit oils. They are the best place to start and there are eleven amazing bottles of oils here. Each oil is incredibly versatile.

FAVORITES OUTSIDE OF THE STARTER KIT
There are MANY other oils that are AMAZING support for our emotions. ( outside of your kits)
Emotions are why I personally got into oils in the first place. I use Progesssence Plus + Valor DAILY. They are incredible and I can’t imagine now a day without these two. POWER DUO!
Many women see great support from Progessence Plus. Many of our emotions are tied to our hormones so PP is a beautiful support for us ladies. (Also check out Dragon Time- this one comes in handy also around that time of the month 😉 )
A few other favorites are Humility, White Angelica and Inner Child.
( look up these oils and read their little YL descriptions, AMAZING oils)
I don’t look at a bottle of oil as a magic potion that is going to magically give me JOY. But I do believe with all my heart that oils are beautiful tools that can absolutely be used to help support us in the ways that we need.
I personally use daily:
+2 drops of Progessence Plus on my wrists.
+ Two drops Valor- morning and night (and anywhere in between). Two drops of Joy on my chest.
+Frankincense on my face and back of neck. I do this every night before bed!
+Stress Away Rollon – wrists
+Then my favorite daily diffuser combos for emotions are:
Joy + Tangerine.
Stress Away + Citrus Fresh.
Release + Purification + Joy.
Frank + Lemon + Stress Away.

Every one of us is different- definitely try various combos topically and diffused consistently as you seek out the best support for YOU!!!!
