Essential Oils and Emotional Stress


I started using essential oils over 15 years ago, just as my marriage was falling apart. I would not have survived if it hadn’t been for using essential oils…no I take that back God would have used something or someone else to help me survive that ordeal. The plants used to make essential oils were invented and created by God when he created the world. He knew we would need them. Essential oils can be one of the tools we can use to help us through major stress.

The reason essential oils are so emotional effective is because the nerve that detects smells in the nose is directly connected to the emotional center of the brain. Smells often trigger memories.

One day I was riding in the car feeling horrible. I was angry, full of hate, depressed, resentful, etc. Looking out the window I saw nothing. In my life I saw nothing but pain. Then I remembered I had a bottle of essential oils in my purse, so I put a few drops on as you would apply perfume. A minute later those horrid oppressive feelings lifted off my shoulders and were gone. I saw the sun shining on the beautiful new green grass in the fields as we drove by! I went from the pit of despair to feeling calm and OK, level (if that makes sense)

Essential oils are safe to use IF you use a few precautions. Every once in a while I hear about someone having a bad experience because they did not use proper precautions.

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
