Essential Oils for Emotions
dōTERRA has given us a "That Was Easy" button with a specific kit formulated just for emotions called the Emotional Aromatherapy Kit!
This kit is all you need to get started using essential oils intentionally to redirect yourself into a more positive state of mind. I remember when I was in attendance at the convention when the Emotional Aromatherapy kit was released. I was soooo pleased and excited! I couldn't wait to get my hands on all of the oils and get them on me and in my diffuser.
They come in 2 different applications. There's the roller bottles which are pre-diluted and you can apply on your skin and there are 5ml. bottles that the oils drip out of and you can add to a diffuser. Pictured are the roller bottles. They're seriously like the best natural perfume. I feel indulgent and beautiful when I wear them and have people telling me that I smell good all the time.
dōTERRA Motivate™ Blend: Peppermint Plant, Clementine Peel, Coriander Seed, Basil Herb, Yuzu Peel, Melissa Leaf, Rosemary Leaf , Vanilla Bean Absolute.
Ok, so this one to me is a MUST first thing in the morning. And throughout the day as needed (like when I have "exercise" on my calendar and I'm not feeling int the mood! For the morning, I have Motivate™ on my nightstand so when I wake up it's handy. It smells like mint chocolate to me! I've heard others describe it just like that, and yet others say it smells completely different to them. It's interesting how scents of essential oils come through differently for people. It's minty and invigorating.
dōTERRA Cheer™ Blend: Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Star Anise Fruit/Seed, Lemon Myrtle Leaf, Nutmeg Kernel, Vanilla Bean Extract, Ginger Rhizome, Cinnamon Bark, Zdravetz Herb
This blend is a cross between citrus/spice. Citrus is like sunshine in a bottle! Spice is sultry and confidence-boosting. I use this oil heavily on really overcast days or stretches of being indoors because the weather isn't suitable to go outside. It helps my mood a ton! It's my cabin fever blend. I have my kids use it on long car rides. It makes the ride much more pleasant! There isn't a day that I don't use Cheer at some point, really. Try it, you'll love it! Cheers! :)
dōTERRA Passion™ Blend: Cardamom Seed, Cinnamon Bark, Ginger Rhizome, Clove Bud, Sandalwood Wood, Jasmine Flower Absolute, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Damiana Leaf
This blend is sultry, with warm, spicy notes intermingled with more subtle herbal/grassy notes. I won't buy chemical perfume anymore due to the toxicity of those items, and instead use dōTERRA essential oils. The Inspiring Blend is one of the oils I love to wear as perfume. The scent lingers because it's a heavier oil. I place this oil over my heart a lot to remind me of why I'm building a dōTERRA business. It helps fuel my why and reignites my passion for serving others in a meaningful way.
dōTERRA Forgive™ Blend: Spruce Leaf, Bergamot Peel, Juniper Berry Fruit, Myrrh Resin, Arborvitae Wood, Nootka Tree Wood, Thyme Leaf, Citronella Herb
The renewing blend has helped me overcome some very blocked up feelings towards people and situations. Everyone needs to forgive someone. I absolutely love the scent...it's a light, crisp blend of trees, grasses and herbs. When I smell it it helps lift feelings of judgment and resentment right away. What I like to do is apply it over my heart and sit in silence. I think about the person or situation that has offended me and send them love. I often visualize this person as a child. We were all children once and had our belief systems programmed into us which cause us to do what we do as adults. When I think of the child version of the person who has done harm to me, my heart softens and I understand better. And you know what? They are teaching me something valuable: How to release and forgive. I ask: What can I learn from this that will make me stronger?
dōTERRA Console™ Blend: Frankincense Resin, Patchouli Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Labdanum Leaf/Stalk, Amyris Bark, Sandalwood Wood, Rose Flower, Osmanthus Flower
“When anxiety was deep within me, your consolation brought me joy.” ~Psalm 94.19
Who doesn’t need the comfort every once in a while…or often? Console is one of my favorite blend in the emotional aromatherapy system. It is a mix of florals and trees and when I smell it I feel a warmth wrap around my heart that is so protective and loving. It can be very helpful in tough, desperate and/or grief-stricken times...when you need that extra layer of support to get you through. It is truly amazing. I want to mention that it has rose essential oil in it which makes it so, so precious to me. Did you know it takes 60,000 roses or 2,160,000 rose petals to make 1 ounce of CPTG rose essential oil? Yeah it’s THAT precious.
I practically bathed in this oil when my dog of 13 years (Niki) passed away. She was my first dog and it was very rough to say goodbye. This blend helped me release my pain in a constructive way. I gave this blend to a sweet friend when her mother passed and she told me months later that it helped her through her darkest days. I'll forever be grateful for this blend.
dōTERRA Peace™ Blend: Vetiver Root, Lavender Flower, Ylang Ylang Flower, Frankincense Resin, Clary Sage Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Labdanum Twig Absolute, Spearmint Herb
Man, do we need more of this in the world. Peace is the oil that I go to when I am in need of loving myself more and being in the now. I truly believe that the more people who are at peace with themselves and their own hearts, the more peace, overall, there will be in the world. I put the reassuring blend in my diffuser often at night before bed and apply it over my heart and solar plexus when I need to relax and wind down. It's especially amazing for meditation.
How to Use the Blends*
