In this post, I want to tell you about why I think using essential oils for the emotional healing I mentioned in yesterday’s post is a good idea. In fact, my reason for recommending it is what I love best about aromatherapy: it’s sneaky!
Healing Essential Oils
"Aromatherapy is the art and science of using the therapeutic properties of aromatic plant extracts known as essential oils to promote all levels of health and well-being---physical, psychological and spiritual." -Joni Keim and Ruah Bull, Daily Aromatherapy: Transforming the Seasons of Your Life with Essential Oils.
Sneaky Healing with Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy, a form of energy therapy which reprograms us at the cellular level, offers a way to target your past wounds and painful feelings.
“The essential oils do not themselves directly harmonize the auric, or energetic, field. The aromatic molecule’s energy interacts with the energetic and subtle anatomy of the person, their fragrance molecules stirring, agitating, electrically boosting, or in some other way stimulating the human energetic fields, allowing them to reorganize and harmonize themselves.” –Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
(1) Essential oils increase vibration and create a synergy with any other energy healing techniques you use so that the healing experience will be more powerful.
(2) Essential oils can penetrate the amygdala (in the limbic system in the brain) through scent and that means more effective work with emotional issues.
(3) Essential oils may accelerate healing. In my own work with clients, my healing sessions have been completed in much less time when I have added aromatherapy.
So we will talk more about how to sneak some healing into your heart and soul using aromatherapy. Next week, I’ll suggest some specific ones you can try. But first, tomorrow, I give you one more sneaky healing idea.
See you then!
