Our emotional health can directly influence how the rest of our body feels and functions. When we are in emotional distress, it lowers our overall quality of life and how we feel day-to-day. Emotional health affects how we make decisions, how we interact with others, and how we respond to events that happen in our life. Things like stress, anxious feelings, changes in the weather, and a host of troubling (yet common) emotions can negatively influence our mood.
Aromatherapy is a simple, effective method for managing your emotions and enhancing your mood. Fortunately, you don’t need to be a scientist or essential oil professional to take advantage of the emotional benefits that essential oils hold. Simply educate yourself about the different properties of each oil, and use the potent, powerful nature of essential oils to create a personalized experience that will help you to conquer, tame, and soothe the dozens of emotions you encounter every day.
