Aromachology specifically refers to the application of essential oils to impact positively on your mind. Adding these extracts to your life can uplift our moods and emotions, strengthen and stimulate our minds, aid in memory enhancement, and boost confidence. This kind of mental stimulation has a direct impact on our daily performance. This study for example considered the effectiveness of aromatherapy for depressive symptoms.
Choosing the Right Essential Oil for Self-Empowerment
Although each one of Nature’s essential oils has specific properties, I believe that when we are working on an emotional level it is important to take your smell preference into consideration as you are more likely to have a positive response. It is important to feel connected and enjoy the aroma of your chosen essential oil/s. When you inhale your favorite aromas take notice of how they make you feel emotionally and physically.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you instantly smile and feel uplifted?
- Does a happy memory surface?
- Is it as simple as just feeling good when you inhale your favorite fragrance?
