Using Essential Oils to Help Release Emotional Trauma

Essential OilsIn my practice, I have found essential oils can be a great aide in clearing emotions related to trauma.

Essential oils contain aroma compounds which directly affect the limbic system through olfaction (smell).

The olfactory system of the brain communicates directly with the limbic system which in turn regulates the nervous, immune and endocrine systems via the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary axis.

The ability of olfaction (smell) to modulate mammalian biology and mood has been repeatedly demonstrated.

A systematic review of 18 studies in the International Journal of Neuroscience in 2009 found “credible evidence” that odor affects mood, physiology and behaviour.

In this interview with Dr Eric Zielinsky from the Essential Oils Revolution Summit, I go into depth on the four stages of emotional trauma, and which oils are helpful to use at each stage.

The Four Stages of Emotional Trauma

  • Stage 1: Denial and shock
  • Stage 2: Anger and resistance
  • Stage 3: Grief and apathy
  • Stage 4: Acceptance and reintegration

This is completely unique new material – don’t miss out!

    I’m so grateful for the recirculation of this interview. I heard it on the summit, but it goes deeper this 2nd time! After 50 years of life, I now can see where I had been stuck due to ACES, from a very, very rough first 20 years of life, between trauma & illness. I look back over the last 8 years when my use of EO’s and research has increased and see the amazing healing to my mind & emotions as a result. Thank you for this available information to keep educated on such needed topics! Bless you Niki for investing into emotional wellness, and Dr. Z for your passion to extend to the masses the need for personal self care using Gods created resources!
