he or she experiences most often. Chronic anger, depression, anxiety, worry, jealousy, and all the other negative emotions generate a low frequency (vibration). Love, joy, and peace produce positive vibrations in your body.
Your vibration is impacted by everything around you through the principle of entrainment. Entrainment is the inclination for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. I mean everything from the food you eat to the people that are around you either raise or lower your vibration.
Second, scent has a powerful effect on our moods. For example, if you walk into a room that features a pleasant smell, you are more likely to be a good mood. Studies have found certain aromas can affect mood by eliciting a muscle-relaxing effect and can reduce stress in individuals. Scent also been demonstrated to affect people's work performance, behavior, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self-confidence, and physical and cognitive performance.
Therefore, by using essential oils, you can experience positive emotions that will raise your vibration. Consequently, support you in your manifestation process and to attract favorable circumstances into your life.
Here are some of the most common essential oils that affect mood and productivity (they all have medicinal properties).
Many other essential oils can help improve your mood and reduce anxiety and stress. These essential oils include but are not limited to frankincense, roman chamomile, ylang-ylang, patchouli, lime helichrysum, cardamom, bergamot, and the rest of the citrus.
However, scent does not work like a drug. It does force you to experience a feeling. Instead, the majority of scents work through our associations and experiences with them. That is, for a scent to elicit a response in you, you have first to learn to associate it with some event. While people within a culture often share common associations with scents, based on your life experience only you know what scents help you feel good.
That is why it is pointless for me to list all the essential oils that improve mood here. Whatever essential oil scent makes you feel good is the right essential oil for you.
Therefore, by becoming more aware of the way specific odors affect you personally, you may be able to enhance your health and well-being.
