How to use them

Using Neuroaromatics™ essential oil blends to anchor positivity in the brain and ensure mental wellness is a holistic approach that combines the science of essential oils with principles of the Nervous System and Salutogenetic principles. To access and maintain the full potential of your physical and mental/emotional strength, follow these steps:

 

  1. Choose the Right Neuroaromatics™ Blend:                                                                                                                                                                                                 Start by selecting an essential oil blend that aligns with your specific goals. These blends are designed to support various aspects of mental wellness, such as stress relief, mood enhancement, or cognitive clarity.

  2. Create a Meaningful Routine:                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Incorporate the use of your chosen Neuroaromatics™ blend into your daily routine. Consistency is key to creating a meaningful attachment. 

  3. Mindful Application:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Before using the essential oils, take a moment to set your intentions and focus on the desired outcome. This mindfulness enhances the effectiveness of the anchoring process. Then put a drop of your blend in your hands and cup them over your nose. Inhale deeply. If you use a roller, inhale from your wrists.

  4. Stay Consistent:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Consistency is vital for maintaining the effects of an essential oil blend.  Continue to use it at least twice daily or as recommended to keep the positive anchors in place. It takes approx. 3 weeks to create new neuronal pathways in your brain.

  5. Healthy Lifestyle Choices:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Support your mental and emotional wellness by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This includes regular exercise, a balanced diet, sufficient sleep, and stress management techniques.

  6. Seek Professional Guidance:                                                                                                                                                                                                                               If you are dealing with specific mental health challenges or seeking to address deeper issues, consider consulting with a mental health professional who can provide guidance and support tailored to your needs.

  7. Periodic Review:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Periodically assess your mental wellness and make adjustments to your Neuroaromatics™ routine as needed. Your goals and needs may evolve over time.

 

Neuroaromatics™ blends can be a valuable tool in anchoring positivity and promoting mental wellness, but they work best as part of a comprehensive approach to self -care and mental health.

 

Note: Individual responses to essential oils can vary, so it's important to be mindful of any allergies or sensitivities you may have. If you are very sensitive to citrus oils, wait at least 2 hours to expose your skin to direct sunlight after using your blend. This does not apply when inhaling the scent.

 

The oils used for the Neuroaromatics™ blends are DoTerra and Enfleurage oils.

The description of how essential oils interact with the brain and contribute to mental and emotional well-being aligns with some theories about the potential benefits of aromatherapy and essential oils. Here's a summary of the key points:

 

  1. Optimal Neurotransmitter Balance:                                                                                                                                                                                                          Essential oils are believed to interact with targeted neurons in the brain through a lock and key principle. This interaction is thought to help establish new and more beneficial neural pathways, contributing to optimal neurotransmitter balance and overall health.

  2. Salutogenesis:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The salutogenetic approach emphasizes focusing on one's strengths to activate physical, emotional, and mental resources. This approach promotes neuroplasticity (the brain's ability to change) and supports homeostasis, contributing to overall well-being.

  3. Neuroplasticity:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to change and adapt by forming new neural connections and strengthening or weakening existing ones. Essential oils are thought to play a role in this process by helping to establish new neural pathways and promoting balanced brain chemistry.

  4. Limbic System and Olfactory Memories:                                                                                                                                                                                                        The limbic system, which includes our sense of smell, is closely associated with emotions and memories. Essential oils can access stored memories and emotions in the limbic system and hippocampus. They are believed to influence subconscious images and memories by attaching themselves to specific brain receptors.

  5. Olfactory Anchors:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Aromas and scents, when experienced, can create direct connections with specific life experiences. We can use this by linking the aroma of an essential oil/blend to a situation and create olfactory anchors, allowing for the alteration of behavioral patterns and the creation of new neural pathways

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             It's important to note that while there is anecdotal evidence and some scientific studies suggesting the potential benefits of essential oils for mental and emotional well-being, the field of aromatherapy is still evolving, and more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms involved.
