Wouldn’t it be nice to break old emotional patterns of worry, fear, and anxiety?
Do you find that your mind wanders to the past or the future more than you’d like?
At times it can be beneficial to see where we’ve been, and to have a sense of what we’d like to create in the future, but if your mind is constantly “chattering” to you it can interfere with your health, sleep, productivity, and enjoyment of life. If your emotions have decided to “camp out “in your head, creating unwanted, repetitive patterns and behaviors it may be the result of an imbalanced vata dosha.
In Ayurveda, vata is responsible for motion in the body. When it is balanced it promotes healthy digestion, creativity, and movement in positive directions. But when vata is aggravated, which is characteristic of the qualities inherent in this dosha, it can lead to anxiety, feeling scattered,unfocused, moody, and absentminded. Vata types often find themselves victims of sleepless nights.
Because essential oils effect our limbic system in the brain they can be useful in breaking cycles of behavior and restoring balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit. Because our sense of smell is connected to our limbic system essential oils can realign our moods, memories, desires, and appetites allowing for natural health and healing to occur.
- To balance fearful, anxious states try: angelica, jatamansi, bergamot, geranium, vetiver, or cedarwood.
- To promote and restore a sense of being grounded and centered try: angelica, eucalyptus, chamomile, basil, cypress, or rose.
- To promote sound sleep try: chamomile, lavender, mandarin, neroli, rose, or thyme.
- If you’re feeling moody try: benzoin, bergamot, clary sage, frankincense, geranium or rosewood,
By using essential oils to balance the body mind and spirit one can restore harmony in day to day living and reach the highest state of the potential, “Sattva”…..the place where we are meant to live and play.
