Let’s get our Positivity on!

by Penny Keay

Most all essential oils will have an effect on our emotions. They are inhaled and quickly pass through our nasal passages into the smell sensory reception nerves.

Think Positive

The signals are sent to our olfaction bulb and the limbic or primal brain. This area is affected where various scents can elicit emotional and other responses. These include physiological and psychological responses, which are immediate upon inhalation.

The limbic part of the brain is what makes the use of essential oils in aromatherapy so effective. In humans and other primates, the limbic brain is connected to the hypothalamus found in the brain.

This area involves the emotional, mood, memory and neuroendocrine regulation centers.

Since the sense of smell affects the whole cortex of the brain, you can see that the use of essential oils can affect many different pathways and systems throughout the body.

Although many folks associate energy pathways with spirituality or spiritualism, I prefer to associate it with the whole body.

Your mind, your physical and emotional needs all contribute to your spirit. If you can find the combination of all your needs (physical & emotional) in exchange, you will be able to have to a happy and contented spirit.

To start with, you will want to focus on essential oils that first off make you feel happy. These typically are the essential oils your body will be drawn to or will crave.

These can change over time. We always suggest for you let your body – your sense of smell guide you as to what essential oils it needs to help balance you. It is not only mentally but also physically that you will be drawn to various scents.

Suggested oils that are uplifting and help the majority of people feel happy include the bright crisp citrus scents:  Bergamot, Orange, Lemon, and Tangerine.

Others include members of the mint family:  Peppermint and Spearmint.

As mentioned above any essential oil that you enjoy should be included.

Other essential oils that can help dispel negativity especially if associated with depressive attitudes include the following:  Neroli (helps with anxiety and panic);  German and Roman Chamomiles, Helichrysum (helps with the feelings of frustration, bitterness and anger),  Spikenard, Lavender and Rose (help with overall feelings of no self-worth).

The following essential oils can help positive energy flows depending on various states of negative energy you may be feeling:  Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rosemary, Patchouli, Melissa, Coriander, Sweet Marjoram, Frankincense, Myrrh, Vetiver, Clary Sage, Cypress, Eucalyptus globulus, Hyssop, Pine needle, Tea Tree, Ginger, Geranium, Juniper berry, Thyme.

Diffusing essential oils for emotional, mental or spiritual health can include full room diffusing using any, number of available diffusers see all our diffusers. For whole room diffusing fan diffusers or tart warmers are great.

Scent balls can be used in smaller rooms. In addition, for travel time in your auto there are  Car diffusers available.

To surround positive scenting in your workspace you can use a  Terra Cotta Disc with your favorite oils. This will help keep positive energy flowing while you perform your deskwork.

If you are not able to use a small diffuser, you can always use a Personal inhaler and inhale a few whiffs every now and again.

Massage oils are always another method to enjoy oils.

In addition, for your immediate personal space consider applying one or two drops to a  Terra Cotta Pendants or other jewelry. All of these methods will help you stay positive and focused as you go about your day.

If you feel negative energy is causing you to have greater feelings of depression, anger, anxiety or any other number of emotional conditions, please do a search on our site for articles that will have more in depth suggestions addressing those particular issues.

In the meantime, enjoy the wide variety of essential oils available to surround yourself and others with Positive energy!
