Aromatherapy on Grief and Healing the Heart

Feelings- sadness, anxiety, misery, heartache, blame, hurt, frantic, rage, fear, guilt regret, anger.

Thoughts- going over and over the past, going through the what if’s and if only.

Behaviour- yelling for no apparent reason, bursting into tears, talking to self as if the person is there, wear the lost persons clothes or jewellery

Physical symptoms- loss of appetite, lethargy, restlessness, sleeping too much, breathlessness, waking through the night or very early, hair loss.

How can we help!


One of the most important things we can do for people who are grieving is to give them a safe place in which to experience and express their pain. It very is important for the person grieving to be able to express their feelings and talk about their loss or traumatic experience. This helps one to feel supported and know that they are not alone and that they are being heard. Receiving comfort is so important for the grieving person.


Comfort is to soothe in times of distress or sorrow.


Take a moment to think about what essential oils could support yourself or another.


What essential oils bring a smile to your face, give you a feeling of emotional uplift and remind you of happy times and so on.


Remember essential oils are sourced from an abundant array of flowers, leaves, bark, woods, herbs, spices, fruit and more. They offer their own insights, transitions and healing.  As we make our way through different journeys in life these wonderful beauties from nature subtly integrate any changes taking place.


Self care is never a selfish act. It is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have. The gift I was put on Earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self, and give it the care it requires. We do not only for ourselves, but also for the many others whose lives we touch.


~Parker Palmer


Here are some suggestions of ways in which you can soothe your emotions, being mindful of the moment.


Sit and be quite breathing slowly and deeply

Have Aromatique Baths while playing some music that you enjoy listening to.

Use your Aromatherapy burners, room or body sprays, remember to choose oils that remind you of happy times and uplift your emotions, giving you courage and support

Take time out for you and your friends

Exercise daily, take walks on the beach or woodlands, hug a tree

Write yourself some positive affirmations

The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.


~Thomas Moore
