I was tempted to label this blog post "Hot Mess Today, Forever, & Always", or "Bat Shiz Crazy-So Use Oils". Ha! Instead, I held it together and made the title sound like I don't use dry shampoo for 7 days and 7 nights. Even though...you all know better. "Emotions with Essential Oils" sounds a lot more professional and put together. Right? I thought so too.
Guys. Girls. People of the world. Hear me out on this. Essential oils can make a bad day good. I know my whole high school softball team is laughing at me right now, because I told them Peppermint and Wild Orange would heal their heart break. But I WAS and AM being serious!
WHY DO ESSENTIAL OILS WORK FOR EMOTIONS?
I'm going to try and make this really simple, so ya'll can understand without getting too technical and scientific. Because no one likes scientific answers.
Your olfactory bulb is located in your forebrain. Right in-between your eyes and the top of your nasal cavity. This part of the brain is used to process smells. Why is the olfactory bulb so important? Well, think about a cocaine addict (I know, a bit extreme). When they snort up the drugs they get an instant high because it hits the olfactory bulb immediately. NO, i'm not saying go snort up some peppermint to get high. What I'm saying is the olfactory bulb has direct correlation with the brain and your feelings!
When you smell your deceased grandmas perfume you instantly get a feeling of happy childhood memories filled with hot dog mac and cheese, or when you smell your ex boyfriends cologne you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach where you possibly want to vomit because you had a bad break up. Right? Well, it's no different when you're using Wild Orange and Peppermint to stabilize your emotions when something traumatic has happened.
A lot of people get scared, and turned off because they don't know what oils will help with their emotions! Have no fear, doTERRA is here! ;) DoTERRA released a whole emotional therapy kit about a year ago. And, oh, how it has saved me!
Since the above picture is SSSOOO easy to read, here's a link to read up on the facts and benefits of each oil! The emotional therapy oils consist of 6 oils: Console, Forgive, Peace, Passion, Cheer, and Motivate.
My personal opinion if you're interested in buying these oils? Purchase the Emotional Therapy TOUCH Oils! They're cheaper, in a roll on bottle for easy application, and about $100 CHEAPER! WWWHOOOAA! That's right! We all love cheaper, right? Well here's the link for the TOUCH oils!
Go rub some emotional oils and treat yo' self! *Mic Drop*
