Balancing Healthy Emotions

This class is all about emotions. Emotions can be difficult and even scary. It is so much easier to suppress emotions than to recognize, feel, and process them. However, the ability to recognize, feel, process, and release emotions will enable you to function in a more positive and successful state so you can live free to create the life you desire.

We learn about and develop emotions from birth, through early childhood development and onward. Which means that helping children recognize emotions and learn to process emotions is one of the most powerful gifts you can give as a parent or caregiver.

It also means that if you didn’t develop and utilize effective techniques to process your emotions early on, you may have some catching up to do. Don’t worry. I will give you easy tools to use so you can learn how to process your emotions in a healthy way.

In this class, We will share popular essential oils that can be used with various emotions. I will also share different techniques to make using your oils more effective for those of all ages.

When talking about emotions, we must mention the limbic system. The limbic system is a system of nerves and networks in the brain that controls basic emotions and drives. It is the emotional brain. It supports five major functions: emotions, behavior, motivation, long-term memory, and sense of smell.

Essential oils can be used to tap directly into the limbic system to stimulate memories and emotions. As you inhale essential oils, the tiny molecules enter the nasal cavity and pass by the olfactory bulb. Your olfactory bulb is a part of your limbic system and therefore your response to an aroma is going to be emotional before it can be rational.

This is great news! That means you can use essential oils to recall memories, both good and bad. If they are bad, you can use the oils to help you release cellular memories stored in the body, allowing you to process and move past them.

We all regularly come in contact with reactions to smells. You walk into the house at dinner time and smell your favorite meal being prepared. Your emotions are instantly triggered by the fond memories you have of that meal and you feel joy.

You smell the cologne your grandfather used to wear. It instantly triggers emotions based on your relationship. If you had a good relationship, you may feel emotions like love and joy. If you had a bad relationship or he has passed away, you may feel anger or sadness.

Now that we have covered a little science, let’s dive into these powerful blends and talk about how they can be used.


A blend of Sacred Sandalwood, Lavender, Ylang-Ylang, Frankincense, Orange, Angelica, Geranium, Hyssop, Spanish sage, Black spruce, Coriander, Bergamot, Lemon, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa, Rose.

Harmony™ is a blend of pure essential oils that contain scents to provide an uplifting aromatic experience.
Using positive affirmations with oils can make their effects even more powerful. As you connect a positive thought or affirmation to a physical smell, you begin to connect the two and establish a more intentional experience.

The Power of Affirmations

“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”
Marianne Williamson

In a life full of relationships, there will be many times we need to forgive. When we are bothered by the actions of others in our past, we are filled with anger, hate, resentment, and emotional pain. Forgiveness is a way to release all of those negative emotions from your inner body and begin the healing process. One useful technique is to combine deep breathing while inhaling Forgiveness essential oil.
Deep breathing can be as easy as stopping what you are doing and taking a slow deep inhale, feeling your lungs expand and fill up. Then release your breath just as slowly as you took it in. Repeat this two more times.

The blend Forgiveness™ contains Sesame, Melissa, Geranium, Frankincense, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood,  Coriander, Angelica, Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon, Ylang ylang, Jasmine, Helichrysum, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa, Rose.
This combination provides an aroma that supports the ability to forgive yourself and others while letting go of negative emotions, an important part of personal growth.

- Use this blend topically or in a diffuser to help feel and process forgiveness.
- Apply 2-4 drops directly to your right rib cage or the center of your right foot.
- Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
- Diffuse 4-6 drops up to 1 hour 3 times daily.

“I learn from all of life’s experiences.”
Repeat this affirmation as you practice your deep breathing exercise.

🌼Think of one person you need to forgive.

 Inner Child

Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I?”

You may have asked yourself and felt this many different times throughout your life, in the transition from a child to a teenager or teenager to an adult; when graduating from college and search for a career; when entering a relationship and needing to figure out who you are as you intertwine your life with someone else's life. The sweet fragrance of Inner Child™ may encourage you to connect with your authentic self.

This blend of Orange, Tangerine, Ylang-ylang, Royal Hawaiian sandalwood, Jasmine, Lemongrass, Spruce, Bitter orange, and Neroli may help stimulate memory response and help you reconnect with your own identity, which is one of the first steps to finding emotional balance.


- Dilute 1 drop with 1 drop of V-6™ or olive oil and apply to your earlobe as needed.
- Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.
“I release the past.”

🌼 Think back to your childhood. 
What is the first thing that comes to mind that you used to do?

 Present Time

 “The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.”
― Thomas S. Monson

Present Time contains Sweet almond, Bitter orange, Black spruce, Ylang-ylang.

When diffused, Present Time™ helps you focus on the here and now, so you can get beyond the past and move forward. It was created to help bring people into the moment.

Pair meditation with Present Time for a more powerful effect.

Meditation is a practice of turning inward and bringing awareness to what is happening in the moment.

This blend is PERFECT for meditation as you focus on your breath, your body awareness, and your present thoughts.


- Topical: Apply 2-4 drops directly to the area two inches below belly button.
- Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
- Diffuse 4-6 drops up to 30 minutes 3 times daily.

🌼 Name one thing you will give your full attention to tomorrow.

It gives a relaxing aroma that facilitates the ability to let go of anger and frustration. It also promotes harmony and balance when diffused.

Let’s talk teens. It’s no secret that teens are emotional. Lots of changes are going on in their bodies. They are transitioning from childhood into adulthood and often struggle with being dependent on their parents while having a strong desire to be independent. They may also feel overwhelmed by the emotional and physical changes they are experiencing.

Communicating your love for your child is an effective way to help your teen during difficult life changes.


Giving teenagers tools to release unwanted emotions can be very helpful in creating an emotionally healthy teen, allowing them to feel and process in a healthy manner.

Movement can be used in various forms of intensity to work through or release different emotions. Many people find high-intensity fitness, such as running or sports like boxing, successful in releasing stressors and frustration, while others may find slow intentional movement, like yoga, great for releasing anxious feelings and cultivating a sense of peace.

Diffusing Release is a simple tool anyone can use and is very effective to help feel and process emotions such as anger, resentment, or guilt.


- Apply 2-4 drops directly below your throat above your clavicle.
- Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
- Diffuse 4-6 drops up to 1 hour 3 times daily.


“I let go with ease and grace.”

🌼 Which best describes you, slow intentional movement or high-intensity fitness? 

Valor ll

“Inhale courage, exhale fear.”

Courage is something we all need, at every age and stage of our lives.

Courage to:

- take our first steps.
- step onto the school bus for the first time.  
- get through our first presentation.
- dream.
- start a family.
- build your own business.

Using Valor ll is an easy and effective way to inhale courage, and exhale fear.

The opposite of courage is inertia. Saying the affirmation can help you move from inertia to courage.

Diffuse Valor II for an inspiring and calming aroma or apply topically to experience this empowering and uplifting fragrance.

Valor ll is a blend of Ylang-ylang, Coriander, Bergamot, Northern Lights Black spruce, Chamomilla Recutita, Idaho Blue Spruce, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Cassia, Davana, Geranium. It contains naturally occurring constituents linalol, alpha-pinene, camphene, and limonene. (google it) =)


- Topical: Apply 2-4 drops directly to left shoulder blade.
- Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
- Aromatic: Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.


“I come from my strength.” 

🌼 Think of a time when you showed courage, despite difficult circumstances.

Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)

AFT is a technique that uses the power of scent to gently shift awareness away from negative thoughts, feelings, and memories, and to initiate a positive outlook and attitude.  This results in greater confidence and inner freedom. When we are no longer stuck in negative mindsets, we are free to create the life we desire.

This twelve-step process is yet another tool you can use to help you release emotions and memories that are holding you back and allow you to move forward. It is a simple process that starts with setting an intention or goal you would like to achieve, one you don't believe is very attainable. You rate your intention on a scale of 1 to 10 and move through a series of steps incorporating your essential oils, which will allow you to move through different emotions that are limiting you. 

You can use very common oils such as Stress Away, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Thieves to help tap into these deep memories and emotions and release them to foster growth.

You can also use favorites like Inner Child, Release, Transformation and Believe.

You can purchase Dr. Benjamin Perkus' books through his website and walk yourself through the process or you can find a practitioner on his website to guide you through this process. https://aroma-freedom.myshopify.com/

🌼 Do you ever feel "stuck" in a particular emotion or feeling but don't know how to move past that emotion?
