We were created to function as a whole.  The mind, body and spirit are inseparably connected and they communicate at a cellular level.Your body is made up of intelligent cells and their purpose is to restore health.

This means your body naturally wants to be balanced and whole. That’s how we were designed.

To better understand your body, you need to know what emotions are and how they communicate with your body.

Emotions are chemical molecules that carry information which binds and reacts with cell receptors.

These molecules go into the cell, impacting function and your behavior.

The cell receives molecules on one of its receptors, which function as sensors for incoming information. These receptors gather in a cluster at the surface of a cell, waiting for a chemical to attach a message. This new information is received inside the cell. This impacts your energy level, your behavior, and your mood.

It’s amazing to discover how emotions affect our health!

Because emotions are chemicals, they are not limited to the mind.

Emotions flow and are processed throughout the whole body! Science has revealed that there are complex neural-processing functions in the mind, heart and intestine. We have “3 brains” that are neural networks with independent memory and intelligence.  This means you can actually process feelings in each of these three places, not just in your head!

The mind is like a conductor, directing the body to feel emotionally and behave physically.  The heart processes the messages our brain receives in either a negative or positive way. The intestine responds accordingly, either maintaining health or creating illness to the rest of our body.

Ever had a “gut feeling”? That is an example of this process in action.

A biochemical reaction is occurring with every thought!  Negative reactions give conflicting messages, which disrupt internal balance.  This can lead to illness. When we think and feel something, a new belief is created.  Are you cultivating positive beliefs and/or health or negative belief and/or illness?

Essential oils are an incredibly effective tool for emotional wellness.

Because both emotions and essential oils are chemically- based, a powerful reaction occurs as they make contact within the body. Essential oils promote emotional purification. This means that they detox the cell and restore proper cell function.  It is fascinating how biocompatible essential oils are with the body.

Just one drop of essential oil has 40 million trillion molecules. These tiny molecules can reach every cell of the body within minutes!!!

Because they are chemically complex, essential oils encourage emotional and physical detox.  They help remove those conflicting cellular messages and promote cellular restoration.

They support receptor sites on the surface of our cells. This is one of the reasons essential oils do not carry side effects!

Essential oils are the “life blood” of the plant – helping the plant defend, nourish, and repair itself.  Essential oils have the same function in the plant as blood has to the human body. The quality and grade of an essential oil will determine its effectiveness. Certified Pure oils are the safest, purest oils to use for supporting the physical and emotional needs of your body.
