Emotional healing with doTERRA essential oils

Here's the link to an amazing presentation by Daniel McDonald about emotional and spiritual healing with doTERRA essential oils here. Daniel McDonald is the author of the book, Emotional Healing with Essential Oils.

I very much resonate with Daniel's message. He speaks about how essential oils not only heal on a physical level, but they also heal on emotional and spiritual levels as well.  Essential oils vibrate at a higher energy than the human body and help to increase one's vibrational level. 

I'm thrilled to find out about Daniel's work since I'm very interested in healing the whole Self: body, mind and remembering our connection with Spirit, and so I am very interested to learn that essential oils can help with this process.

According to Daniel McDonald, there are 5 stages of healing which take place in just about every circumstance:

1. Physical healing

2. Healing the heart

3. Releasing limiting beliefs

4. Increase spiritual awareness and connection

5. Inspire the fulfillment of our life's purpose

As we use essential oils to heal our physical bodies and ailments, an emotional and  spiritual healing can occur as well. Our bodies are being allowed to completely heal from the inside out, which differs from the medical healing that only addresses symptoms and doesn't always cure the real problem.

Some examples of how essential oils can help with emotional healing that is covered in the presentation include:

Bergamot 
- helps with self-worth.

Cypress
- supports individuals who are stuck or stagnant in life.
- can result in an emotional catharsis
- helps emotions to flow again.
- helps to release the throat chakra and give voice to expression of their emotions
- good to journal to support the flow of emotions
- put  it on the bottoms of feet
- inhale cypress oil 4-5 times a day
- placeon the kidneys (which is responsible for the flow of water in the body), water symbolizing emotions and helping our emotions to flow again

Geranium
-  "emotional healer"
- has powerful resonance with the heart
- good for infants and children

Immortelle

Lemon

Lime

Myrrh

Terrashield
- helps to ward off pests (not just insect pests), but also individuals who are "pests"
- it's a protective blend and would be good for sensitive / empathetic children who find it difficult to be in public places because they absorb everything around them (On Guard is another protective blend that would be good for this purpose).

Wild Orange 
- "oil of abundance" - supports the right brain (i.e., the creative brain); activates creativity.
- place it on the left side of the body.


Here are some more examples from the book...

Clove – “The Oil of Boundaries”

“Clove is especially helpful in breaking free of patterns of abuse by restoring the victim’s sense of self and helping them regain the strength to stand up for their needs.  Clove insists that we live true to ourselves and the Divine by establishing clear boundaries.”

Cilantro — “The Oil of Loyalty & Release”

Similar to Coriander essential oil, Cilantro oil invites us to live true to ourselves. Cilantro has powerful emotional-cleansing properties, which assist us in the process of “releasing.” It also assists us in shedding whatever is not in harmony with the True Self. By releasing what is incongruent, Cilantro encourages us to listen and follow our inner guidance.

OnGuard Blend –  “The Oil of Protection”

OnGuard protects us from harmful energies and influences. This blends protective qualities extend beyond the physical level by aiding us in warding off unhealthy connections such as: co-dependency, parasitic relationships, or negative “group thought.”

Thyme – “The Oil of Releasing & Forgiving”

Thyme empties the heart of negativity by cleansing feelings of anger and resentment. It increases our tolerance and patience for others. Thyme restores the wounded heart to its natural state of love and forgiveness.

Zendocrine Blend – “The Oil of Transition”

Zendocrine assists us in letting go of patterns or issues that no longer serve us. It is incredibly helpful when we want to make a serious change in lifestyle or break a bad habit.

    1. Good question - It refers to the base of your neck (cervical spine c-6 and c-7). I'll change the wording above so it's more clear. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cervical_vertebrae
