Essential Oils for Grief

Essential Oils for Grief

“Essential oils can provide a great sense of support and relief when we are grieving. Despite what some may think there is not an oil that works for all grief and for everyone.”





 

“Grief is something that we all experience at one time or another. It seems that the words loss and grief are tied together. Grief has many faces. Loss of a loved one, loss of a pet, loss of a friendship, loss of a relationship, loss of a job… actually loss of anything that is important to you.”

“When we are in grief we usually feel it in our heart, and so it makes sense that the chakra that is most affected is the heart chakra. We hear people say my heart hurts, my heart has been ripped open, my heart is empty.”

“Essential oils can provide a great sense of support and relief when we are grieving. Despite what some may think there is not an oil that works for all grief and for everyone.”

“The first thing to do is to look at the cause of the grief. Grief over loss of a mother is quite different than loss over a job. So we always look at the vibrational relationship for the grief when choosing essential oils to help.”

Is it possible to hold all the grief in the world and not get crushed by it?

Great post! I have had to deal with much grief in my life, and I have had to work a lot on my anger management issues, to help get rid of all the grief, hurt, and anger. Thanks for showing that this is a real problem!

Everything Matters: Beyond Meds

To reframe what we’ve generally  been told about mental anguish and suffering by the mental illness system is a very important part of healing. Psychiatry makes out that the individual is sick. A much more honest as well as empowering way to view much mental anguish is to see ourselves as part of the web of life. Our despair is telling us something very real and valid. We should listen to it and pay attention and learn. Feeling pain is not a weakness, it is a capacity. We can learn to let it fuel us rather than cripple us.

From the Guardian a few days ago an article on the planetary crisis:

Grief is subversive

Everything Matters: Beyond Meds

I came across this quote on grief and thought I’d share it and then cut and paste my collection of posts on grief below it. Grief, like all the other difficult and/or dark emotions often gets pathologized, but it is an important part of life, without which we would not be human.

I would also like to suggest an idea for consideration. Much of what is labeled psychiatric disease is grief that has never been expressed or properly felt, or validated. If we have unexplored trauma, then it’s likely we have unexplored grief too. Some of us need to begin a grieving process that never started in order to heal. Some of us have a life-time of grief that needs to be allowed and experienced. We can choose to challenge our culture’s fear of grief and the dark emotions and begin to heal and turn it around.
