Combining with Essential Oils for Enhanced Results
Our naturopath, EFT practitoner has been combining essential oils and EFT for over 8 years in her private practice with better results than when clients decline the use of aromatherapy from her observations (Lezlie Cebulski, ND, EFT, RM) As there is a mind-body connection (or they are really one), pain often has an emotional component. Check out the EFT for Pain Script and combine it with an essential oil of your choice.
EFT & Essential Oils Together Enhance Emotional Release - How?
Essential oils are great for helping and healing physical issues, but also very effective for emotional issues. Despite that we know very little about how the brain works and are just starting to discover all of its incredible power, essential oils work very well with the brain. They affect the brain two ways: via the olfaction and via essential oil absorption. While recognizing and acknowledging the therapeutic value of the known chemical components in essential oils, they are also likely working in tandem with other factors. Certain essential oils work in therapy in certain conditions, and yet their effects cannot yet be explained chemically.
Essential oils help the body heal from emotional issues. As Valerie Ann Worwood (author of The Fragrant Mind) says, both are alive—“chemically, electrically, and in terms of infrared radiation” (Worwood, 11). In fact, neurobiologist Donald Kennedy did a detailed study of the difference between plants and animals, and there is actually very little difference, which is why it makes sense that essential oils can be so powerful.
Frequency, a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points, is within every living being, according to Robert O. Becker, M.D., who wrote The Body Electric. In his research, he discovered that lower range essential oils actually create physical change in the body, and high frequency oils create spiritual/emotional changes. The frequencies of essential oils reply to thoughts and prayers, and those frequencies can aid in many emotional issues.
How to Use Essential Oils for Emotional Healing and Emotional Freedom Techniques
There are many ways to use essential oils. The first thing to do is research—find what sort of oils are best for you. From there, begin with the art of smelling, as Worwood’s book proclaims. Take an open bottle of essential oil or a perfumer’s smelling strip (plotting paper with a smear of essential oil) in your hand and move in a circle about 6 inches underneath your nose. From there, inhale under each nostril. Be sure to focus and inhale deeply!
When using essential oils, remember that less is more! Doubling the amount will not double the effects, so use in moderation. There are not rules regarding the length of time for essential oil use—it depends on the person, the root of the problem, and other factors.
So, which method do you use? There are many different ones—you can use essential oils with a massage, in a bath, inhaling via steam distillation, or sniffing directly from the bottle. There are also diffusers, candles, room sprays, water bowls, humidifiers, and heat sources. What method you use depends on your requirements and circumstances. If you’re at the office, sniffing directly from your preferred essential oil bottle can be very helpful (for example, our Focus blend). Experiment and find what works best for you!
Proceed Using the EFT Script
By applying or using essential oils prior to EFT Tapping, resuilts are enhanced as the limbic system in the brain is activated (where emotions are stored), vibratory frequency is raised, and the emotional/energetic release from EFT is enhanced. This combination helps emotional repatterning.
