Essential oils have long been touted for their powerful emotional benefits. Our sense of smell is directly tied to the limbic region of our brain. This area of our brain is responsible for our emotions, memory, cognition, stress levels and more. When we inhale essential oils, the tiny molecules send signals to our brain that may help us relax, release negative emotions, help us focus, and more. There are a variety of essential oils to support emotions. Here are just a few of our favorites.
