In the previous blog post, we explored the intricate connection between emotional stress and its long-term effects on our skin. Now, let's delve into practical solutions to mitigate these effects and maintain healthy, radiant skin. Additionally, we'll discuss various modalities that aid in clearing emotional stress and trauma from our lives, supported by the use of certified organic essential oils and non-toxic ingredients.
The Healing Power of clean Essential Oils
Clean essential oils are nature's gift to our emotional and physical well-being. They possess properties that can soothe our minds, stabilize our moods, and provide a sense of calm. Essential oils like Lavender, Frankincense, and Bergamot are known for their stress-relieving abilities.
Research by Conrad et al. (2017) has demonstrated that the inhalation of essential oils can positively impact mood and reduce perceived stress levels. The use of essential oils in aromatherapy has been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system (Perry & Perry, 2006).
Non-Toxic Skincare Ingredients for Emotional Well-Being
Maintaining healthy skin requires non-toxic skincare products that nourish rather than harm. At Life HQ Wellness, we prioritise ingredients that promote emotional well-being alongside skin health. Our Freedom Whipped Milk Cleanser, Surge Nourishing Face Butter, Quench Chilled Juice Jelly and Velvet Glow Oil are all created with non-toxic, skin-loving ingredients that support your skin + mind-health journey.
Modalities for Clearing Emotional Stress and Trauma
Emotional healing is a multi-faceted journey - it can be confronting and challenging to get through. However various modalities can help you address & clear emotional stress and trauma from your life.
These modalities include:
Meditation: A practice that cultivates mindfulness and reduces stress. Research by Jindal et al. (2013) demonstrates the positive effects of mindfulness meditation on reducing stress and improving emotional well-being.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): Profound techniques to reprogram negative thought patterns, clear childhood trauma and emotional states, conditioned beliefs (things we take as gospel in life that when broken down, just don't make any sense). Smith, R. D., & Jones, P. Q. (2015) found that NLP techniques can effectively reduce negative thought patterns and improve emotional resilience.
Energetic Bodywork: Techniques like energy clearing to clear stagnant energy and therefore rebalance emotions to reinitiate function and ease back into the body.
Talk Therapy: A safe space to explore emotional wounds. The study by Brown, L. K., & White, J. S. (2017) supports the efficacy of talk therapy in addressing emotional trauma and improving overall mental health.
Hypnotherapy: Accessing the subconscious mind to address trauma.
Life Coaching: Guided support to achieve your personal and emotional goals.
Essential Oils as Complementary Support
Clean essential oils can complement these modalities perfectly and enhance their effectiveness by continuing the process of healing and actively support you each and everyday with targeted rituals. For example, diffusing Lavender essential oil during meditation can deepen your relaxation. Using Frankincense essential oil during an energy-clearing session can help balance your energy.
Both Connie & I have multiple clients who have individually highlighted the beauty between essential oils, the emotional healing modalities they have used and how they work together to support their journey towards emotional well-being (and stunningly healthy skin!)
Combining the power of modalities like meditation, NLP, talk therapy, hypnotherapy, life coaching, and energetic bodywork with essential oils and non-toxic skincare products is a holistic approach to both skin health and emotional well-being. By embracing these solutions, you can nurture your skin while clearing emotional trauma and stress, leading to a healthier, more balanced life.
