The uses for essential oils (both for health and emotions) are vast and diverse. We use a broad variety of plant life for oxygen, food, clothing, building, and to bring harmony and balance into our homes and outdoor surroundings. Plants have many beautiful qualities, but the plants themselves are not the only bounty. The essential oils that are extracted from plant leaves, flowers, stems, roots, or bark are incredible tools for us to use in our everyday lives, and when we are looking for natural and healthy solutions in a more potent form.
All essential oils are made up of various chemical constituents whose research is continually growing, especially in recent years. In addition to these impressive qualities, they often also transfer very pleasurable sensory experiences within minutes because of their fragrances and restorative natures, making them impactful on our brain chemistry, emotional well-being, and spiritual wellness. This makes for a highly vast and diverse list of uses for essential oils.
When it comes to particular emotions, you can also get hints from the oil itself as to the impact it has on our mind and emotions; for instance, tree oils can help us feel more grounded with their earthier aromas.
