Aromatherapy benefits the emotions

Aromatherapy benefits the mind and emotions as well as the physical body. It has been known to have a profound effect on the brain and can assist with releasing negative emotional states, disturbing memories and psychoemotional trauma.

Below is a listing of single essential oils and the emotional states that they can positively impact.

For a large list of essential oil blends that help to heal and relieve physical conditions see our Aromatherapy Recipes, or visit the FAQ page.

How to use the "emotional" aromatherapy oils for best effect:

  • Diffuse in a room and just breathe in, or
  • Keep a hanky or tissue in pocket or purse to which you have added a few drops of the essential oil, breathe in frequently ort as needed
  • Add a few drops to your favorite massage oil or skin lotion and apply topically to arms, legs, neck or face
  • Add one drop only, to food or drink (use only pure therapeutic grade essential oils)
