Emotional Aromatherapy

What is Emotional Aromatherapy?


While scientists and psychologists have studied emotions for hundreds of years, this area of the human framework is still rather mysterious. Despite the confusing nature of human emotions, it is clear that they can directly influence our well-being and quality of life. Throughout history, essential oils have been found to trigger responses that can alter mood. Using pure essential oils, comprehensive research, and scientifically formulated blends, doTERRA® has created the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy™ System to provide users with unique emotional health benefits.



I would like to introduce to you six essential oil blends for Emotional Aromatherapy. These blends were introduced shortly after we had crisis and trauma in our lives. The unexpected happened and our whole world turned upside down. I was so blessed to have this kit with these oils. This morning I am diffusing Motivate so I can get all of my list done today. I call my list, love to get things done. I invite you to try these oils if you are suffering emotionally. It is hard to take care of yourself, emotionally, spiritually and physically and we can use all the tools we can to help us. These oils are a great tool to have in your home. Let me tell you about each oil blend and the emotions wheel.

How To Choose A Blend




  • Identify the emotion you might be feeling on the emotional aromatherapy wheel.
  • Select the corresponding essential oil blend that is right for you. (You may find that two or more blends are appropriate to balance your varied emotions at any given moment.)
As essential oil chemistry is naturally complex and each person is unique in their response to specific aromas, you may also personalize your aromatherapy applications by using single dōTERRA® essential oils from the aromatic plant families corresponding to the emotions found on the system wheel—naturally safe and simple.
A—Can be used aromatically
T—Can be used topically
N—Can be used topically with no dilution (NEAT)
S—Dilute for young or sensitive skin (SENSITIVE)
CAUTION: Do not use essential oils in eyes, ears, or nose. To dilute, use doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil, olive oil, or other carrier oil.
