Have you ever wondered how you could change your mental state of being? Studies show that therapeutic essential oils can bring about a radiant well being and a heightened mental awareness. We can change our emotional responses by changing thoughts, attitudes and by just being more aware of what is going on around us.
We know essential oils have wonderful physical healing effects on the body. Did you know that virtually every chronic ailment has an emotional component, which the body holds in its subconscious? In fact, the emotional factors in such illnesses are often what keep the person sick! Even acute illnesses, such as cold and flu have an emotional aspect. We get a cold when we are overworked and over stressed and then we worry about it! The illness is the body’s message to slow down, take a break, and take care of ourselves.
So many things affect our imunity, toxins, stress, environment factors of all kinds, and our thoughts. By inhaling an essential oil combination that lifts our heart and makes us feel relaxed and happy, we actually enhance our whole immune system!
Changing an emotional pattern or vibe requires understanding the issue and how it affects our life. Understanding why we are experiencing the problem, what we could experience instead, and what we need to do to change. Changing a pattern is like erasing a groove- the deeper it is imbedded, the longer time it will take to erase. For some emotions we need only to bring them into our awareness to release them, while others are more deeply rooted emotions require more time and attention.
When we do EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, which we have found very effective, we use positive affirmations as we tap away physical and emotional discomforts. We take very deep breaths to get ourselves balanced. Deep breathing with awareness can open and release stored emotions, change consciousness, sensitivity, and feelings, and bring in empathy and trust.
Therapeutic Essential oils are an important consideration to help us change our emotional vibes. Oils can be used in combination or singly. Learning how single species oils work in our body systems gives us better knowledge when we choose a blend. Blends are wonderful because they work synergistically, dealing with more than one aspect of a condition.
Inhaling the oils is the fastest and most often preferred in balancing mood and emotions. Scents can affect our emotions and work on a subconscious level to modify emotional imbalances or change behavior. Research has shown that people surrounded with pleasant scents enjoy higher self esteem.
An easy way to inhale the oils is to put a few drops on a tissue, a cotton ball, or just in the palms of the hands and inhale. Diffusion is a gentle way to administer essential oils. A diffuser will disperse the essential oils into a micro mist that will stay suspended for several hours to reduce bacteria, fungus, mold and freshen the air with natural fragrances..
Applying them on the skin with a safe carrier is another way to use the oils. A safe carrier lotion or oil will get the essential oils down to the blood stream. That’s where the oils do their work. Once beneath the skin they go to the intercellular fluid surrounding the skin cells and can enter the blood stream. Then they travel to the internal organs and the lymphatic system where they aid the immune system. This is how essential oils stimulate the body’s own natural defense systems. Reflexology or foot massage are some of the fastest ways to absorb essential oils because of large pores on the bottom of the feet.
Balancing Body Frequency with Essential Oils
Frequency is the measurable rate of electrical energy flow that is constant between any two points. Dr. Rife, a researcher, discovered that certain frequencies prevent the development of disease and that others would destroy diseases. Substances of higher frequency would destroy diseases of lower frequency! The inhalation of an essential oil will enhance the body’s electrical frequency, so it has a direct impact on disease.
A frequency monitor was developed and essential oils and disease were tested. It was determined when the human body’s frequency dropped, the immune system was compromised. Research shows that high grade therapeutic essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc. cannot live!
We know that essential oils contain oxyegenating molecules which transport nutrients into the body cells. They also align frequencies, thus balancing and harmonizing body organs. Disease and emotional trauma may be disrupted with the use of essential oils.
Our thoughts and emotions have frequency. Thinking negatively lowers body frequency in 3 seconds. Thinking positively can raise it in 21 seconds to an optimum range. You could guess which emotions have a high frequency and which have lower vibes. Some of the highest frequency emotions are love, joy, gratitude, passion, excitement and enthusiasm. Next there is positive belief, hopefulness, encouragement, followed by contentment and ease.
Frequencies start to lower when we become bored, frustrated, have doubt, impatience, and worry. Even lower frequencies are feeling discouraged, judgemental, angry, or seeking revenge. Last on the scale of lower emotions are anxiety, guilt, shame, fear, depression, despair, grief and apathy. Finally, the lowest frequency emotion is unconsciousness, when there is complete blockage.
Each essential oils has its own unique frequency and purpose. We can learn and experience how well essential oils help to release emotional patterns. When applying Healthy Girls Breast Oil, which has 8 therapeutic essential oils, you get to raise your frequency to help balance, detoxify, stimulate, and improve your immune system
This is sooo true! I remember the first time I opened a bottle of an essential oil blend and hit an emotional frequency that had until that moment had been entirely outside my range of experience. Amazing!
Thank you for your comment Caitriona. Isn’t it a good feeling to know that we are capable of experiencing far more when we use essential oils?
This is fascinating, Joyce. I never thought about essential oils working through vibrational frequencies, although I now that everything has a frequency. I’m certainly sensitive to scents, so I will look into this some more.
Dorine, sometimes the sensitivity of scents is that of synthetic scents and we certainly have plenty of them. I cannot walk down the soap aisle in the grocery store, unless i hold my breath. I am sensitive to most perfume (synthetic) so I create my perfume with essential oils. ♥
I love that you wrote about energy and how the oils benefit frequency and flow, I feel that aromatherapy is a wonderful complement to energy medicine and my practice. Thanks for posting this Joyce.
Robine, yes, aromatherapy will complement energy medicine or any other physical medicine too.
Thank you for sharing how to use the oils to heal emotions. I always put them in oil I didnt know I could benefit from just breathing them.
Isn’t it wonderful to learn new ways to improve what we have been doing already? Essential oils work in the blood stream . That’s why inhaling them works for emotions. ♥
Such a stimulating and knowledgable post Joyce! And of course EVERYTHING is energy and it just makes perfect sense (scents, hah!) that Mother Nature has supplied us with the perfect ‘energies/frequencies’ to help us offset physical and emotional challenges. Just love how what you say is leading us back to acknowledging the wonders of nature. Thanks for sharing Joyce!
Thanks for your comment Lynn. The next post will give some examples of which essentail oils to use for different emotions. Stay tunned.
Thank you so much Joyce. I have never experienced essential oils and am learning a lot!
Lisa, Experiencing essential oils is one of those things you do not want to put off any longer. Be sure you find a quality oil so you will actually can feel the difference. A blend may be a good way to start. They usually are named for the action they will perform. Check out my shopping cart with discriptions of what they each do.
What more can I say Joyce! Essential oils are beautiful, powerful, empowering and significantly improve our state of being on all levels.
Lov reading your blogs 🙂
Thanks for your lovely words Julie, That is so true, essential oils work on all levels for our well being..
How interesting that thinking positively takes 7 times longer to raise our frequency than thinking negatively takes to reduce it! How scary and thought provoking that is! How important it is to be vigilant of our thoughts. Wow! Essential oils really are amazing. I couldn’t agree more with what you say about how there is an emotional component to every disease state. I see that over and over again. I think it is often the missing key that prevents or enables success in overcoming health obstacles. Western medicine would be so much more effective if it realized that and supported emotional health as part of all treatments. Thanks for such a thoughtful article!
Katie, Thanks for commenting on Changing Vibes. Essential oils are wonderful in bringing our emotional health to be more balanced. I love to use the Healthy Girls Breast oil because it has so many physical benefits as well as helping a woman feel more confident and relaxed..
