There are many opinions about how essential oils should most effectively and safely be used, many of which are based on tradition. Currently, three main regional models of use exist: the German model, the English model, and the French model. Each model is based on how essential oils were first used in a particular way.
- The German model is based on the power of aroma.
- The English model is a trans-dermal or topical method.
- The French model promotes the ingestion of essential oils.
The German model is based on the concept that the sense of smell elicits a faster response than sight or sound. Through the sense of smell, essential oils have the ability to affect our emotions. Aromatic use is highly effective and can be applied to any of the essential oils in moderation. Until recently, science has underestimated the influence aroma can have on our health. Numerous studies have been conducted investigating the effect of aroma to reduce anxious feelings, alleviate stress, and improve mood.
One example of the powerful effects of aroma is found in two studies that examined the effects of ambient fragrances on patients waiting for dental procedures. In the studies, patients were exposed to orange and lavender fragrances before their dental procedure began. Statistical analysis of the results revealed that in comparison to the control group, both orange and lavender aromas reduced anxious feelings and improved mood.

Emotions have the power to influence how we perceive the world—whether for good or for bad. We are often told that we are in control of our reactions, and yet in the midst of emotion, this can seem far from the truth. Yet it is possible to influence our emotions in a more positive direction. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy® oils, doTERRA Peace® and doTERRA Motivate®. Of the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy blends, doTERRA Peace and doTERRA Motivate are next to each other on the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy Wheel, but their benefits are completely unique.
