Recently I spoke at Peerfest, a peer-supported conference for people with lived mental health experiences. I was so thrilled for the opportunity. This is a slide from one of my presentations on emotions and aromatherapy. You can see the different categorize of oils (mints, citrus, spices, florals, herbs, trees and grasses) and the chemical constituents found in those particular categories. You can see how alchohols, ketones, monoterpenes, aldehhydes, phenols, sesquiterpenes, esters and oxides translate into uplifting, energizing, and so on! Some people like to use this chart to narrow down what kinds of oils they will be trying.
