How do Essential Oils Help with Stress?
Essential oils help with our emotions and stress levels in very powerful ways because they go straight to the parts of our brains where our emotions and memories and hormones are located. If you take some time and research the limbic lobe or limbic system along with the amygdala, you will see how our SENSE OF SMELL is the only sense that goes STRAIGHT to that part of the brain!! So whatever we are breathing in and smelling has a POWERFUL impact on our emotions!
That is another reason it is so important that we ditch the toxic candles because that is just like air pollution in our homes. Using a diffuser is a great way to make your house smell good AND give your body the amazing benefits as well!
How to Use These Oils
Aromatically – diffuser, carry a bottle with you, diffuser necklace, scarf, leather jewelry. Wear it, smell it, take deep breaths of any of these oils all day long when you are having a rough day!
Topically – rub the oils on your wrists, back of neck, behind ears, put in face lotion or hand lotion.
Ingest – Put a drop in hot tea! I like to add a drop of oil to a spoonful of honey and then mix it in my tea. I use frankincense daily for anxiety by putting it on my thumb and then pressing to the roof of my mouth as needed.
I talk a lot about essential oils on my Youtube channel, go here to see my videos.
Getting Started with Essential Oils
The best way to get started with essential oils is similar to the best thing to do with fruits & veggies. Eat a VARIETY and eat them OFTEN. Essential oils can support every system of our bodies. They have particularly helped me with emotional stability, immunity, sleep and more!
The reason Young Living wants you to get started with a starter KIT is that these ELEVEN OILS are the BEST oils to get started with! With the oils in the kit and the household cleaner, you can rid your home of 80-90% of the toxins in your home!!
