Aromatherapy and Our Emotions

There are times in our lives when our emotions start to run away with themselves. Learning to balance our emotional energy is probably one of the greatest lessons we must master in order to live happy and fulfilled lives, with less dis-ease, physical health issues and depression.

I have noticed in my private practice the past few years, that anxiety and depression seem to be on the increase, even amongst children. An alarming number of people have resorted to pharmaceuticals in their desperate need to find some help amidst despair.

At the moment, we are in the midst of a chaotic situation as the World copes with Mother Natures’ rebalancing programme.

When chaos takes place, we have a choice, “do I buy into this chaos?’ We are ‘in it’, but ‘it’ doesn’t have to become our reality. If you succumb to the drama of chaos, your emotional energy becomes diminished, fear and worry step in and before you know it, your immune system is compromised and you feel terrible.

So, we must make a conscious choice with intention to nourish our thoughts, becoming calmer and more aware that the only truth for us all is to be present in this moment, letting go of our need to know the future.

Of course, mindfulness is a choice, and what better time is there to start a journey to learn new techniques than now, here in 2020, when there is an abundance of online workshops and some amazing teachers out there.

The energy of fruity oils can be compared to our childhood and our ‘Inner Child’. Smelling them brings about feelings of freshness, dreaming, Summer, the sunshine. A time (hopefully) in our lives when we had no worries. “I don’t have to work, earn money, I’m fed, have a place to sleep and I am protected. I am secure. I only have to think about playing, laughing and learning. The present is the only thing that matters. “
