I’m Done with today…
Ever feel like that? Most days? I hear ya. This was something that I struggled with on the daily as well. I often struggled with my moods, because of my diagnosis. I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality disorder (BPD). Which one of the things that go along with BPD is an inability to regulate moods effectively. I have also been diagnosed with general anxiety, panic disorder and an eating disorder. What fun!
If you didn’t catch my last blog about my life changing story with essential oils, I highly recommend you pop over and give it a read. Click Here. I want to talk more in-depth about the 1 oil that is my go-to essential oil. So by now, you should know what I struggled with on the daily, and what it looked like. Some of you might know exactly what I am talking about. Because it sounds like your story too.
So what is this 1 oil?
doTERRA’s Wild Orange. I know I know. You are probably thinking the same thing I thought of when my friend Ashley said the same thing to me. How can something as simple as an Orange change my mood? Feeling kind of skeptic? I was.
First off it’s not the juice from the orange. If that was the case everyone would be on cloud 9 with the amount of orange juice people drink. Plus the price of orange juice would skyrocket because there is this amazing health benefit. However, the essential oil comes from the peel. So if you have ever peeled an orange and seen this tiny little spray coming off the rine that my friend is the essential oil.
How does it work?
So I won’t get super sciencey on you. But when you smell it travels to our olfactory bulb. This is connected to the Olfactory Nerve, which travels up and is connected to the limbic system of the brain. This is the area of the brain that we hold our emotions, memories, where we control our heart rate and blood pressure. How cool eh? So have you ever smelled, for example, a pine tree and it reminded you of the holidays. Or a freshly baked apple pie that reminds you of your grandma? This is why.
There is different chemistry to each essential oil. Wild Orange is very rich in Limonene. Limonene helps with uplifting and soothing our moods. I really could make a whole other blog post on science and chemistry. However, I want to focus on the benefits of this one.
What Can it help with?
Wild Orange is used in Aromatherapy as a nervine and calmative. Meaning that it can help calm your nerves. It is also used in Aromatherapy as a carminative and antispasmodic for symptomatic relief of digestive discomfort. How amazing is that? So it can help our moods and can help with digestive discomfort.¹
Emotional Aspect of Oil
Wild Orange is known as the oil of abundance. Helps with feelings of drained, overthinking, workaholic, discouraged, and envious. Feeling more productive, hopeful, abundant, playful, generous, and creative.
It is known to open one’s mind and heart up to possibilities and to accept the goodness the comes their way. Reconnecting ourselves with a younger version of yourself it can help you feel fun and more spontaneous.
Allowing use to let go of a scared or fearful mindset to help with our manifestations allowing yourself to know that you are enough. Helping us release all forms of self-doubt and self- judgment.
What is the best way to utilize the oil for emotional benefit?
The best way to use wild orange for supporting your nerves and helping balance moods is through inhalation. My favorite way is to put a drop into the palm of my hands rubbing them together, cupping my nose and my mouth and deeply inhaling. That will help the Limonene work in the brain. You can also apply it topically, up your spine, pulse points. Somewhere that you will still be able to smell them when needed.
My favorite way to get the oils into the air is through diffusing with an ultrasonic diffuser. That allows to me continuously smell the oils and reap all the benefits emotionally.
