Since that time, essential oil usage to effect emotions has been relatively
It was only in 1989, that scientist discovered the amygdala gland plays a
major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma and therefore called the "seat
of our emotions." The amygdala gland is the gatekeeper through which all
sensory data to the brain are processed. The sensory data first goes to the
amygdala gland where it is determined if this data needs to be sent to the
adrenal glands first, for fight or flight, or on to the brain for further
processing. It essentially processes knowledge about stimuli and situations that
are of special importance to our survival. The amygdala is programmed to react
without benefit of input from the thinking part of the brain. So, when we
experience a traumatic situation, fear or any other unpleasant
circumstances this is recorded in the amygdala first and then sent to rest of
the body (i.e. adrenal glands or thinking brain) to be processed. Studies at New
York Medical University proved this gland does not respond to sight, sound or
touch but does respond through the sense of smell. Through our scents we now
have a way to release stored emotional trauma in the amygdala gland and
the rest of our body.
all our adult patterns of behavior are learned as a child before the age of 7
years. Our likes and dislikes, our preferences and most of our initial fears are
all acquired and stored in the amygdala gland. As we get older and have more
"scary" or unpleasant experiences (e.g., getting told we don't know anything,
told we are dumb, told we are ugly, fired from a job, divorced by a spouse) the
amygdala gland dutifully stores these memories. Quite often it is the memories
of these unpleasant experiences that prevent us from moving forward. After all,
if our first serious relationship ended up being taken advantage of by the
other, why would we want to repeat it. If our spouse stole money and left with
another, why would we want to repeat getting married. If our position was
outsourced or we are told we don't have the proper qualifications any more, why
would we want to go back to another 'job' to repeat that unpleasant experience.
Professional counseling, transpersonal psychology and other modalities (e.g.,
EFT, hypnosis) may help. Another tool is essential oils.
With essential oils we can access those unpleasant memories in the
amygdala gland and chose to process the unpleasant memories in a more productive
way. We are not deleting or erasing the memories but channeling the energy
and outcome into a different path and better outcome. The following emotional
oil blends from Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO) can be used in such a manner.
The names of the essential oil blends will tell you what emotions they are
working on. One needs to have acceptance, gratitude, humility and be in the
present time before one can move forward. If one is stuck perhaps forgiveness,
surrender and release are needed first. If there is an exceptional trauma in
life holding you back, then having valor (courage) would perhaps release you. If
one is changing jobs, careers or
their own business then manifesting abundance, having clarity, catching your
dreams, envisioning your goals, seeking your highest potential, having hope,
sparking inspiration, moving into the future, living with passion, magnifying
your purpose and rekindling motivation might all be necessary. Through
professional counseling and transpersonal psychology one often finds releasing
inner child issues, resolving a hidden trauma in life or believing in oneself is
the real key to transformation.
I personally have used 23 out of the 30 essential oil blends above in helping
me out of a depression
after being laid off three times in a 12-moth period, losing my budding
career as an Internet Project Manager and going through the death of my
last surviving parent (mother). The starting place and which oil blends
to pick is entirely up to the individual.
Essential oils are truly yesterday’s wisdom developing into tomorrow’s
