13 Frequently Used Oils + Their Emotional Superpowers

Have you considered all the ways essential oils would serve you? Personally I have a list of over 100 ways sitting right next to me + so many of them I use, but thats not what this post is about. Its's about how nature can support the connection of our body, mind + spirit.


How plants can give us the medicine we need to guide us to connect with the inner part of us that is happy, healthy + thriving. The peace in us. The piece of us, that is all of us, when we let go of all extra stuff weighing us down. Too poetic? I've got one more.


WE can liberate our spirit + fly among the stars in our very own way right here on earth. We can tap into the essential life force within us + live from a place of vitality + freedom like a child can.


This is about feelings. This is about emotions. Tapping deep into the bullshit + doing the work to make yourself a better human. For your family you might say, but really for your goddamn self. You need this. And these little gems of light can gift you the tools to harness your inner strength + work through the moments that come up in life.


Nothing is as it seems, people all over are hurting + in need of love. Our capacity in which to love others is deeply connected to our capacity to love one's self. We need to cultivate a depth of understanding about who we are so we can be true to the force within us. It's a practice. An intention to be present with the voice within our heart + act upon it. To feel deserving + abundant. I believe miracles occur regularly.



If you struggle with this, know neuro-plasticity grants us the ability to reshape our mental wellbeing with our natural efforts. When negative thoughts or patterns are showing up in our lives, I deeply believe in pairing positive psychology with nature to initiate a shift.


One of my favorite people says, "Nature knows things."

And, she's right, it does.


So, with our emotional body in mind, I want to offer you a reference list of 13 frequently used natural oils you can turn to when certain challenges or negative seasons arise. These oils will support you to combat the negative emotions listed along with them. And give you the power to rewire your experience to be one of growth rather than represent stuckness.


As always, I only recommend doTerra. From my research it's the company I have chosen to source my essential oils from. If you want to purchase them through me, I would love to guide you along your journey.


For now bookmark this list, pin it to pinterest or more importantly share it with a friend you know is struggling. Sometimes, when we don't know what to say to help someone through a tough time, simply offering a productive solution like these can help a loved one move mountains within themselves.


So much love.

PS: to consider...


If you find you could benefit from one or more of these oils, let's connect.


The HOME essential kit is the top ten oils conveniently bundled into a ready to use aromatherapy kit with a diffuser for you. Plus it will give you access to the wholesale costs + our community of female leadership.


If you are wanting to use these lovies topically you may want to shop the AromaTouch diffused kit. It provides you with a diffuser plus a quality fractionated coconut oil to dilute your essential oils. Simply it offers an opportunity to explore eight of the top oils. This kit also varies nicely from the HOME essentials with three alternative oils. Those are Wild Orange, Balance + AromaTouch - some of my personal favorites!


To good vibes, good oils + good intentions.
