Are you aware how powerful essential oils are for our emotional well being?
As a mom who struggled with depression for over 16 years, I’ve learned a lot about how essential oils can be used to during my emotional ups and downs. I have managed to live a healthy lifestyle free from the anti-depressant drugs which I was bound to for over 16 years, with amazing results.
With the help of my doctors guidance and a weaning processes involving essential oils, self-care and healthy additions to my supplement routine and diet, I have been emotionally healthy and overjoyed.
I used a variety of essential oils over the years, but one of the most profound routines I have put into practice is one called, “The Great Day Protocol.”
The Great Day Protocol was first shared by D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living, at a class in Wyoming in 1994, and has been used by thousands of people, since then, to help them live happier lives.
Why does it work?
When you inhale essential oils, those molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.”
The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. You know what I mean, right? When you smell a certain scent, it can bring up a very specific memory.
Also, oils inhaled reach the brain within twenty seconds – that is profound and quick!
Inhalation and topical benefits
Layering and blending specific oils in distinct ways can help cultivate the right mindset and create an emotional balancing which will equip you for your day!
Oils applied topically on the skin reach the bloodstream in 20 minutes. So by combining inhalation and topical application you are truly making a big difference. When you rub your hands together with an oil you reach the reflexology points on the hands during the process, which leads to even greater results.
In addition to setting the tone for the day, those who have made the Great Day Protocol a daily ritual have said that they’ve noticed some of the following things:
- More attention to details
- Communication has become more solution-oriented with others
- Increased enthusiasm
- More follow-through with projects
- Increased positivity
- More open outlook
- Better ability to handle stressful situations
- Calmer demeanor
If you could have all that with NO adverse side affects – wouldn’t you take action?
