Essential oils are aromatic liquids extracted from trees, roots, seeds, shrubs, and other plants that have an impressive array of therapeutic compounds. These compounds relieve pain, clear out nasal and respiratory passages, calm the mind and senses, and boost energy levels, among other benefits. It is because these oils contain multiple trillions of tiny molecules that readily enter the body and nourish cells.
According to an article published in the International Wellness Directory “There are about 40 million trillion molecules in one drop of essential oil. They are absorbed easily into the body via the skin and spread everywhere. Research and clinical trials have shown that essential oils can help improve mood, eliminate stress, relieve pain, increase energy, and boost immunity.
Many essential oils sold in the health food stores are inexpensive because they have been cut or adulterated with cheaper oils or additives. Many people have had reactions to those additives and I have not seen them work nearly as well as the certified, pure, therapeutic grade oils. So even though the pure ones are more expensive, you use very little and with rapid results!
Here are some of my favorite oils to use for emotional healing
Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. It has a calming, grounding effect on the emotions, and it promotes circulation. Vetiver is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. Vetiver helps promote focus and mental clarity. It can also be rubbed on feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep.
Frankincense addresses abandonment, especially when someone feels forgotten or rejected. It also addresses spiritual disconnection, distant from father and negative influences.
Lavendar is widely known for its calming effect with stress and anxiety. It supports speaking our truth through open, honest communication and provides courage and strength.
Thyme is one of the most powerful healers of trapped emotions. It empties the soul of all negativity so the heart can open to receive love and forgiveness. It transforms anger, hate, rage, bitterness, and resentment.
Helichrysum helps people who have had trauma, addiction, loss or abuse. This oil restores confidence in life and in the self. It addresses intense pain, anguish, turmoil, hopeless, despair, and trauma.
