The Synergies of Essential Oils to Balance and Release Emotions

By Jodi Cohen

Embracing nature's splendor: a person celebrates the beauty of the autumn wilderness with open arms.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the combination of two things is so much better than each individual piece on its own. Essential Oils to release emotions are created from blends. Learn more about them below.


Essential Oils to Release Emotions

There are numerous examples from food (think cheeseburgers, peanut butter and jelly, bagels and cream cheese) to music to friendships and romantic relationships.

I have been noticing the same thing with supplements and oils.  Sometimes if you test a supplement on its own, it will not test well, but if you combine it with another supplement or an oil, the combination can put the whole system into balance.

I have been working very hard to create new blends that balance different emotional states, like fear, worry, grief, self worth, trauma.

Here’s why:  If you ask most healthcare practitioners about the root cause of disease, they will tell you it has to do with stress.  Stress takes priority over all other functions in the body, including sleep, immune function and digestion, which makes sense because a physical stress could potentially kill you, right?

But, in this day and age, it is not the physical stressors that most of us are responding to.  It’s the emotional stressors.  Recalling, reliving or grieving a past trauma, worrying or fearing some potential future mishap.

Most of our stress is driven by our thoughts and our emotions.  And, until we are able to modify these thoughts or emotions we often remain stuck in our progress toward healing.   There are many different tools and techniques that can be used to help process through challenging emotions and they all have their benefits.

What I find interesting and promising about essential oils is that the amygdala, the center of the brain that is primarily responsible for storing emotions and memories, seems to be more responsive to smell than any of the five senses.

You might have personally experienced this.  Just think of the last time a smell flooded you with memories.  For me, the smell of mothballs reminds me of visiting my grandparents in their Brooklyn apartment.  Or, blackberries takes me back to the lazy days of summer in my childhood.

Taking this one step further, it makes sense that smell can both be used to unlock and release a stored emotion.  Emotion includes the word “motion” connoting that we are supposed to move through them.  But often an emotion can be so painful or intense that we do not know how to work through it, so we store it in our body, often in the corresponding organ or system and replay it over and over in our mind, often to the detriment of our vibrant health.

So, our new emotion balance oils are designed to mobilize and release the stored emotion.  Here is where the synergy comes to play.  The oil blends are proving especially effective at mobilizing the emotion, just as a good detox diet helps to mobilize toxins.

Just as it is not enough to mobilize toxins, you also need to make sure that consume ample fiber to help eliminate them from your system, the Emotion Balance oils synergize with the Brain BalanceParasympathetic® or Hypothalamus™ blends to optimally mobilize them and release them from the system.

This makes sense as the Hypothalamus™ and Parasympathetic® response are key communication channels for the two parts of the nervous system that store and release emotions:  The limbic system and the autonomic nervous system.
