Did you know if you are having trouble being creative, essential oils can help you? Yes, that is so true. Essential oils can boost creativity by stimulating specific messages to the brain to boost a positive mindset or relaxation, which then can foster a creative or artistic mood. It is often overlooked, but one’s sense of smell can be an important tool for creativity. The more times you experience a particular scent, the more you can connect it with a specific memory.
Experimenting with scents that make you feel positive, relaxed, or euphoric can then manifest a mental environment where your creativity can flourish. Try adding a few drops of your favorite blend to your diffuser while you work.
Testing our and experimenting with essential oils can be an exciting part of your day. Learning about new oils and blends can be very intriguing and helpful as you seek to be more positive and releasing negativity. The new feelings and emotions can begin to take place in their proper spots and evoke a newness in you. Romans 12:2 says, “do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (NIV).
Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something new and valuable is formed. It is the use of the imagination, especially in the production of artistic work. The normal stress of life, laziness, or being overwhelmed are just some of the reasons we fall into a creative block. When falling into a block, why not speed up the process of having those creative juices return?
This is where essential oils can play a role. Aromatherapy can be used in many different facts whether it be fore health, relaxation, massage, focus, and even for creativity. Essential oils work directly with our brains through inhalation and absorption. When we inhale essential oils, our limbic system, commonly known as the “emotional brain” is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormonal balance. This relationship explains how essential oils can evoke a certain emotion or mindset.
When applying the oils to the skin, heat or massage can enhance the absorption of the essential oils because skin is permeable, and the active ingredients are being absorbed through the skin. I only use Young Living essential oils because of the frequency and vibration used in them. The best oils to use for creativity are peppermint, grapefruit, black pepper, lavender, cinnamon, bergamot, lemon, and cypress.
If you don’t have essential oils, I recommend using something that smell wonderful to you. I don’t recommend synthetic fragrances, but you could take some herbs from your cabinet, or some citrus fruit and scratch the skin of it and breathe it in.
