As a Nationally-Certified Reflexologist, I love to share with my clients the importance of taking care of themselves… not just physically, but emotionally as well. I am often heard saying “if you don’t take care of yourself, you will not be able to care for anyone else”! I have had to learn to take my own advice, and I believe that is part of the reason I am able to manage my Lupus successfully without taking the toxic medication often recommended. Do I still have issues? Of course I do! Life is messy and none of us is without some stress and chaos… it’s all about how to manage it, and that looks different for everyone. The information below are recommendations on how to enhance your overall health using essential oils for Mental and Emotional Health. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or want to know more about Young Living or Reflexology!
Mental and Emotional Health
Mental health is described as our psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It affects how we react with others and our environment, how we think, and by extension, the choices we make. We can understand, then, the importance of caring for our mental health at all stages of development.

Anxiety is the body’s way of preparing itself to deal with a threat or future stressful events. While this response is normal and happens as part of the body’s natural response to stress, this response can also happen at inappropriate times, or too frequently, as in the case of anxiety disorders.
Depression is a disorder marked by excessive sadness, energy loss, feelings of worthlessness, irritability, sudden weight loss or gain, trouble sleeping, and loss of interest in activities normally enjoyed. These symptoms can continue for weeks or months if not treated and can destroy an individual’s quality of life.
To put it simply, emotions are the way we currently feel. These feelings come in response to what we see, smell, hear, feel, taste, think, or have experienced and can affect our future thoughts and behavior.
