Comfort and Joy this Holiday Season with Essential Oils

Nov 29, 2017 09:40PM
The holiday season has a way of rattling us, no matter how determined we are that “this year is going to be different.” Family, finances, loneliness, shopping, depression, colds, flu parties and the overall idea that the month of December must be a Norman Rockwell painting, can bring us to our knees by the first week of January. Young Living has formulated many essential oils that target health and well-being, such as Thieves, Joy, Stress Away, Gratitude, Release and Sacred Mountain. Join Pam Snyder and Dr. Allan Tomson, at Neck, Back & Beyond, for their holiday event at 7 p.m. on December 7 to experience firsthand the magic of essential oils.

The fragrance of an essential oil can directly affect everything from your emotional state to your immune system and truly bring you greater health, comfort and joy. When a fragrance is inhaled, the airborne odor molecules travel up the nostrils to the center of the olfactory sensation. In less than a second, a scent has the power to activate a number of physical and emotional responses. Research shows that inhaling the pure constituents in these oils can stimulate these olfactory receptors and activate the brain’s limbic system which is associated with memory, emotion and state of mind. The sense of smell is 10,000 times more potent than any other sense (touch and taste must travel thru body nerves and to the spinal cord before reaching the brain).

Snyder is a Young Living educator who recently joined Tomson and their family of practitioners at Neck, Back & Beyond, bringing a wealth of knowledge through her health coaching and consulting work with individuals and groups.
