Let’s talk about Emotions. Do you let your emotions get the best of you? They can sneak up on us and even take over our lives! They can cause you to waste time worrying, lead you to give up, cause you to withdraw, and cause you to avoid life. Balancing our emotions is something everyone has struggled with at some point in their lives - high schoolers, college students, parents-really everyone and anyone! Managing our emotions can get a bit overwhelming but, if we don’t they can actually lead to bigger health problems down the road that can wreak havoc on the body!
There are many factors that can trigger emotional imbalance. These factors can be related to food allergies, pesticides, electromagnetic pollution, heavy metals, medications, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, and many other environmental influences, along with emotional traumas, and painful childhood memories. That’s where essential oils come in. Young Living essential oils are a terrific way to address some of these factors and enjoy enhanced emotional health.
Essential oils are recently gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, but their use is not new. The use of botanicals for wellness is a long-standing practice throughout human history, ancient people recognized the value of using pure botanicals because they were much more in tune with how POWERFUL nature (God’s creation) is! In fact, essential oils and other botanicals have been used in wellness practices as early as at least 5,000 years ago. We can use these powerful tools to help inspire a positive emotional state.

Essential oils have the unique ability to help relax the body, mind, and spirit. They can help balance healthy emotions. Aromatic plant extracts have been scientifically proven to quickly and directly stimulate the limbic system of our brains - the emotional control center. Scents whether they're pleasant or not have been found to have an effect on our moods. The area of the brain responsible for our sense of smell known as The Olfactory System is wired directly to the Limbic System of our brain and is highly involved in emotion. The limbic system is a group of related structures that help regulate emotion, memory, and certain aspects of movement. It is also called the LIBRARIAN of the brain because it is responsible for determining which memories are stored and where. If we ignore emotional health, it is very difficult to enjoy optimum physical health as they are closely interconnected.
Everyday ~sometimes multiple times a day~ I like to use what I call the SERENITY TRIO PROTOCOL. It uses Stress Away, Joy, & Valor to help balance emotions in 3 easy steps!
1. Stress Away on my wrists (can also apply to neck, temples, & feet if you want cause you can never have too much!) Stress Away is an emotionally balancing oil that is relaxing and comforting bringing feelings of peace and tranquility.
2. Valor on back of neck (at the brainstem area called the Occipital Triangle) you can substitute Valor II.
Valor is a balancing blend that helps to promote feelings of strength and self-confidence it also helps aid focus and attention.
3. Joy over my heart (thymus)
Joy is an uplifting blend helps to boost your mood with its calming properties that helps to promote peace and ease nerves.
Apply all 3 consecutively multiple times throughout the day as needed while saying a positive affirmation, a short prayer (Serenity prayer), or a bible verse can really help you get through what seems like an impossible day. Many people also add in Peace & Calming as a 4th step.
I am so thankful to have found these AMAZING drops of liquid gold! They have changed my family's life forever!
