I love this question and if this is you then I empathize. Often times women come to me to work through and heal from PTSD and are looking for holistic approaches and natural remedies. Whether it's trauma, fear, anxiety, depression, stress, worry, or phobias, essential oils are a truly profound way to support a re-wiring of the brain and support new emotional responses. The reason for this is that the essential oils are lipid soluble and can penetrate the cell membrane and the blood-brain barrier. To explain how they work: The oils enter the sinus cavity through the nostrils where the tiny aromatic compounds are transported to the brain's limbic system where trauma/memories and scent are all processed in the same place. When we work together, we introduce various essential oils that trigger neural responses in the brain so you can begin to rewire your thoughts. For example, citrus oils typically elevate our mood, make us feel happy, joyful, and creative while the tree oils support us in being more grounded and rooted in times of uncertainty or want to calm our mind, relax or sleep. As a gut health coach I've worked with countless individuals over the years who have come to me for natural solutions to their mental health struggles. Happy to say, we've been able to turn things around using plant-based options so they could avoid the unwanted side-effects of medication. What you might come to discover is the joy of working with these precious gifts the earth provides and how easy the oils are to integrate into what might be an already busy lifestyle. Plus, you get to smell like a spa of your own design! : ) The truth is you can create a neural response in your brain in under 30 seconds. And if you're someone who happens not to be drawn in by scent, then there are other ways of implementing the medical grade I work with. While essential oils are not the "cure" they are a vital tool in the healing process for people who might be struggling w/ PTSD; inclusively, they have no side-effects and are extremely cost-effective. What have you been working with so far that has helped?
