Emotions Index for Essential Oils

Moods are often perceived as having chosen us, as if they are happening to us. Rather, the chemical impact of our emotions is the real chooser of moods. That’s why we reach for certain foods, sugar, caffeine, or a drug of choice, interact with certain people, do certain things, and act out certain behaviors because of how it makes us feel and to get a “chemical” hit.

What if we could use this knowledge or be emowered to alter the chemical response to choose the mood we want to feel and then actually feel it- without harmful substances or recreational drugs?! How Empowering would that be? What if we cold think of a desired mood and then choose the use a healthful that is capable of creating that mood through it’s chemical properties and impact to our brain?

With essential oils, we have the ability to direct our own emotional traffic!!

This list is designed to introduce the concept of associating an oil to an emotion or vice versa as well as serve as an ongoing resource.
