Our sense of smell is deeply connected to our unconscious mind~ it’s the only sense that is linked to the part of the brain that stores emotion. So our sense of smell and our unconscious emotions are really strongly linked.
Essential oils are plant medicine, which means they hold the vibration of the plant or flower that they come from. Each oil holds a different vibration and so do the emotions that get stuck in our bodies.
When we inhale, or absorb essential oils through our skin, they are able to penetrate not only our physical body (moving into the blood stream, lungs, liver, central nervous system etc) they also penetrate our energy body (chakras, meridians, thoughts and emotions).
I like to think of it as the healing properties of the oils creating a dance with our stuck emotions. For example: Jasmine dances with fear~ it travels through your energy, finds the fear, and starts the dance. Gently dissolving the fear, creating space.
Soon you’re able to breathe into those places that once felt tight or stuck or held back,
- You find yourself saying yes (or no)
- You find yourself caring less what others think
- You find yourself living with greater expansion
This is what excites me about Essential oils!
