I am Pastor Briggitte P. Brown, LCSW and also a Doterra Wellness Advocate. I help individuals find an alternative holistic approach to learn how essential oils can support their daily lifestyle.
It’s a plant-based approach I use Doterra essential oils in my practice, to set a relaxing atmosphere for those who come here. Aromatic use of essential oils is especially powerful. The sense of smell is a tool that can elicit powerful physiological, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system,
which is the part of your brain that stores memories and emotions. Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming.
Diffusing is one of the simplest ways to use essential oils aromatically. You can achieve the same health benefits by simply placing a few drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand, cupping it around your nose, and breathing deeply.
