Healing Trauma with Aromatherapy
BreeLyn DuPertuis, Aromatherapist
We are surrounded by a natural pharmacy. When someone gives us flowers or a plate of food, our instinct is to bring it close and inhale deeply. Why is that? Pure plant fragrance affects our brains most primal resources. Essential plant oils can help us to relax, wake up, and even have feelings of love. As the moisture in a plant evaporates we catch some of that vapor in our nose that sends a signal to our brain. Aromatherapy (use of essential oils) is an empowering way to guide our emotions. By understanding how aromatherapy works and the simplicity of using essential oils, survivors of trauma have a beautiful tool to live more emotionally balanced lives.
