Question: How can I use essential oils for mental and emotional health?
A major issue concerning emotional health is our tendency to deal with emotions episodically. Because our emotions tend to be cyclic and episodic, we are prone to deal with them in a similar manner. In reality, we should develop a model of consistency for emotional stability and health. I know of a few effective strategies that can be used to appropriately manage our emotions. First, we must control the amount of stress we experience and properly manage that stress on a daily basis. Second, we can utilize aromatic application of essential oils to stabilize our mood. Used in this way, essential oils can change the very nature of our body’s chemistry and in turn, alter our emotional responses. Instead of only using essential oils episodically, I recommend incorporating essential oils with mood-stabilizing properties into your daily routine. Essential oils that fit into this category are the mood matrix oils (Serenity, Citrus Bliss, Elevation, and Balance)and all of the citrus oils.
Question: What are the benefits of learning and using the AromaTouch Technique?
The main benefit of the AromaTouch technique is that, regardless of the circumstance, it becomes applicable and adaptive to the needs of the individual. Among the greatest strengths of the technique is that it confers overall health resiliency to the recipient. In turn, our bodies are better equipped to react appropriately to a variety of different circumstances. In addition to overall health support, the AromaTouch Technique helps increase consistency of health, reduce stress, and improve and stabilize the immune system. The ease and simplicity with which the technique is performed eliminates any barriers to learning. I know that every person can learn the technique and properly perform it on others to achieve expected health outcomes.
Questions: How can I help my school children focus in school?
There are two main areas that should be considered when helping children improve this ability to focus in a school setting. Perhaps most importantly, we must consider the consequences of good and bad nutrition. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains is an instrumental factor in improving a child’s performance in school that is often underplayed. I recommend taking advantage of the nutritional supplement products offered by dōTERRA. The a2z chewable and IQ Mega are supplements specifically designed for use by children and are formulated to be excellent supplements to an overall healthy diet. In addition, I would also suggest developing a routine of essential oil use for your child. Many essential oils can be used to improve focus and increase clarity. InTune, Peppermint, and Citrus Bliss are remarkable choices that have been clinically demonstrated to help improve focus and increase retention of information. Diffusing essential oils during study time is a great way to help your child achieve and maintain optimal focus.
Question: What is your favorite way to use essential oils?
Through my own personal use of essential oils, I find that I categorize my use to best meet my needs. When experiencing discomfort in a specific area of my body, I use essential oils topically to ease and sooth the muscles and joints. I also love the aroma! Diffusing oils has a powerful effect on my emotions. It is elevating to the mood, calming, stabilizing, and helps give me a different perspective. I also recognize the benefits of getting a consistent internal dose of essential oils. I use oils internally on a daily basis. DDR Prime and citrus oils are a mainstay on my internal usage regimen and I certainly notice times when I do not use them consistently. Although I do not necessarily have a consistent use model, I factor in each respective model of use for very specific purposes. For daily maintenance, I tend to use oils internally; for managing environment, I prefer the diffusion model; and for episodic issues, I tend to use oils topically. Dr.
