Essential Oils & Addiction
Most addictions are born of a deep longing to connect from our hearts to our surroundings, and they become reactions to pain related to circumstances or people that are dangerous and challenging to withstand. To divert our attention, numb our sensations and seemingly keep us safe, we choose substances, behaviors and relationships that match the low or stagnant vibrations of our environments in our past or present reality. Feelings such as sadness, anger, judgment and low self esteem that propel us to use or choose poorly are the symptoms of that low and stagnant vibration, thus promoting the cycles of addiction.
Oils can aid our recovery from unhealthy relationships to food, dieting, alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs, abusive people, relationships, unhealthy sexual choices and habits, self- harming, overworking, multi-tasking, hiding, lying, electronic diversions, social media by creating an environment of physical balance and emotional peace in the body. Essential Oils create conditions in which those low vibrations cannot thrive. By creating new habits and rituals of self- care, Essential Oils fortify us emotionally in order to sustain our journey in recovery. These new rituals shift us into new ways of thinking and being with ourselves and with others.
Essential Oils & Brain Optimization
The premise of aromatherapy: Essential Oils enable us to gain access to stored, forgotten memories and suppressed emotions so that we can acknowledge, integrate and/or release them. When you inhale an Essential Oil, the odor molecules travel via your nostrils to the olfactory membranes in your nose lining. The odor molecules stimulate this lining of nerve cells to trigger electrical impulses to the bulb in the brain, causing a series of reactions within the cell structures, which results in the creation of new habits of feeling, thinking, seeing and being. How? The olfactory bulb transmits those impulses to the amygdala, where emotional memories are stored – a gland which can only be triggered by your sense of smell. This is the control center for breathing and heart rate, which immediately creates emotional responses. When the brain shifts the emotional pattern, it has the capacity to repair and form new pathways. This is Brain Optimization.
