When Comforting Essential oils are needed.
By Penny Keay
Everyone, at some point, will need to be comforted. Whether they have been experiencing something in their immediate life or in a worldwide or distant event, folks will need to be comforted. It may be you or someone very close to you.
In today’s headlines, we hear of many unsettling events. They can be horrific, man-made attacks to crashing of planes, trains or even an auto accident.
The more common events may be from Mother Nature. Earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, tornados and flooding all of these can leave us needing comfort.
Comfort in knowing our family and friends will be okay. Once they are located, to settle ourselves, to deal with a myriad of emotions of what those involved have gone through or things we had to go through.
After any type of event or stressful situation, including a loss of someone close to you, whether caused by Mother Nature or Man-made, smelling various essential oils can help you feel more at ease and give you comfort to feel at peace.
Using essential oils around others may help them get relief without really knowing there are essential oils helping them. Essential oils may help with the depression that accompanies such situations.
Of course, there are other reasons to use comforting scents too. It is possible that you have had a hard week at work or even at home. Some folks have too many ‘irons in the fire’ and need to take a break.
Maybe your kids are having problems in school; they don’t want to do their chores or who knows what other minor catastrophe enters the room, they may need to be comforted.
Just being able to sit down in peace, relax a bit and enjoy some comforting essential oils will undoubtedly make you feel better. Even if it is just a few moments before you have to deal with the next tragedy.
Some well-known essential oils for just this purpose are:
Comforting Essential oils include:
