Emotional Release through Aromatherapy

Caryn ChandlerEmotional Health, Wellness


Presently, on my desk, I have Young Living’s Believe and Abundance Essential Oils.  For this season in my life, I find great influence and shift in my emotions as I pray for my year ahead.  I am looking forward to experiencing others like Clarity, Highest Potential & Transformation.  Although aromatherapy is not new, there is renewed attention as use of essential oils becomes more popular and scientific research continues to grow; and for so many, like myself, intentional use of essential oils is an entirely new experience.  It is my hope that you will also experience the powerful, therapeutic aromas of Young Living Essential Oils.

Power of these Natural Aromas

Do you remember the last time you walked through a garden or took a hike in the mountains?  What did it smell like? How did you feel afterwards?  I bet if you paused for a moment you could go back and remember.  There is no doubt these aromas have influence.  I believe all of this beauty that surrounds us was given for our benefit; benefits more powerful than some have yet to realize.  Young Living’s farms all over the globe provide us with therapeutic grade essential oils.  The possibility of emotional release and renewed focus through aromatherapy is extremely exciting.


Did you know the molecules of essential oils are so tiny and energetic it enables them to penetrate the blood brain barrier?  It was thought that this barrier was to keep damaging substances from harming the brain.  As it is, instead of a barrier it is more accurately a filter in which only a certain size molecule is able to pass. Scientists are discovering more and more, from an emotional state to that of our lifespan, on the powerful influence of these aromas.


The mechanics of aromatherapy can be seen from this excellent graphic below.  When you inhale a fragrance, the aroma rises up into the nasal passages, through the olfactory epithelium, receptor cells are then triggered and this sends a message to the olfactory bulb which sits under the orbital part of our brain; behind and between the eyes.

The olfactory bulb then transmits impulses to other parts of the brain and other parts of the limbicLimbicSystem_image system, including the amygdale.  This is considered the emotional seat of our brain & emotional memories are stored here.  Have you every thought why you have some of the same emotional responses to certain situations?  I have.  These automatic emotions had been locked into memory.  To my relief, the sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain, the emotional control center.  Through the aroma of therapeutic essential oils these emotional patterns can be released.  This is powerful!


Inhaling2Essential oils have been found to have overwhelming physiological and psychological effects because the limbic system is directly connected to other parts of the brain which control hormone balance, memory, heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and stress levels.   Did you know this part of the brain does not understand words or be communicated with spoken or written language?  It responds only to smell.  Our responses such as anxiety, depression, fear, anger and joy all emanate from this region.  All other senses are routed through the thalamus, which passes stimuli onto the cerebral cortex, or the conscious thought center of the brain.  Can you envision the possiblities?  Emotional release that could be realized through these tiny molecules so powerful they could help so many get right to the center of a matter and find release and restoration.
