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. Anxiety, anger, fear, depression and joy all emanate from this region. Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, pure and therapeutic essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects. What this means is that essential oils are directly effective in assisting with emotional balance!
Young Living has compiled an essential oil reference library that contains over 280,000 compound references. Using scientific and peer-reviewed research, they created a line of essential oils targeted to address emotional issues and imbalances. They call this line the "Feelings Kit".
You can read the testimonials of others who have used this kit containing 6 essential oils of Harmony, Inner Child, Release, Forgiveness, Valor, and Present Time to see for yourself how others have had effective results using the Feelings Kit for their own emotional needs.
