Essential Oils MentlEmotionBal

NCC 1543

Essential oils are a powerful tool to assist in the release of old anger, resentment, fear and trauma. Balancing the emotional field is crucial to health and well-being and is the first step towards healing chronic illness. Every physical symptom of the body has an emotional message. Essential oils have the ability to directly access and affect the brain's limbic region, the center of emotion and memory. Many oils can be used to create a positive emotional state, help soothe grief, create an environment of relaxation and much more. Students will also learn "the brain oils", known to enhance clarity and memory. In 1989 researchers agreed that the amygdala, one of several structures in the cerebral cortex, plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma and that aromas have a profound affect on triggering those responses.
