In my practice, I diffuse essential oils to support the therapy process.  Essential oils can support us in our emotional wellness journey. Living with chronic stress can cause us to have many health issues ranging from trouble relaxing, digestive problems, sleep disruption, and headaches to name a few.   

The scent of the oil can impact the areas of the brain that control emotion and memory. You may have a particular scent that reminds you of a happy memory such as a birthday or holiday, this is the same concept.

In today’s ever-changing society, sleep disruption is a significant issue for many of us. The American Sleep Association (https://www.sleepassociation.org/sleep-treatments/essential-oils-for-sleep/) lists the following essential oils to support sleep:

Lavender, Chamomile, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Valerian, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, and Frankincense.

 

Always remember to use Grade A Therapeutic Essential Oils!
