So how can oils help?
Whilst each personality type has it's strengths, it also has it's own pitfalls. Whilst I'm generally a fan of focussing on strengths rather than weaknesses, if you're aware of tendencies you struggle with, you can use aromatherapy as a tool to help support you and reduce the frequency you fall into those habitual patterns of negative behaviours.
No personality type has exclusive rights over an emotional state, so remember that whilst you may be a strong type 4 & 8, and want to focus on regularly using the recommended oils for that type, you can always dip into other types if you're feeling a little type 9 today.
Type 1 can be rigid workaholics, and as perfectionists, they may suppress emotional needs in order to get things done.
Oils that can help support emotional release are Copaiba, Geranium, Star Anise and the HD Clear blend. Oils that can help with feeling over-responsible/burdened are Ylang ylang, Arborvitae, Cypress, DDR Prime, Console & Rescuer.
Type 2 can burn out, and they are hypersensitive to the approval of others, especially those they truly care about. Oils that can support emotional burn out are Basil, PastTense & Breathe, whilst feelings of lack of approval may be alleviated with Bergamot or Beautiful.
Type 3 achievers are often plagued by a lack of self esteem. Catching negative self-talk early is key to maintaining emotional health. Oils that can support this are Bergamot, Cassia, Jasmine, Pink Pepper and Green Mandarin.
Type 5 at their worst can become withdrawn and disconnected from others. Oils that can aid connection are Marjoram, Cedarwood, Myrrh and Magnolia.
Type 6 can be prone to developing anxiety due to their hypervigilance to any impending (real or imagined) sources of harm. Oils that can support you in managing anxious feelings are Basil, Neroli, Serenity, Console, Peace and Calmer
Type 8 personalities are often stubborn and headstrong. Wintergreen and Oregano are fantastic supporting oils along with Birch, Aromatouch and Wild Orange for flexibility.
Type 9 peacemakers can burnout from emotional exhaustion. Oils that can support this personality type are Citrus Bliss, Motivate, Blue Tansy, and Black Spruce.
Obviously there's far more to each of these personality types than this very brief overview has covered, but I encourage you to purchase a copy of the Emotions & Essential Oils book (it's free on kindle unlimited!) and is full of fantastic ways to support your emotions, regardless of personality type.
If you want to purchase any of the oils above, just get in touch and one of our coaches will be happy to help make sure you get the best possible price.
p.s. for those who are wondering, yes, I'm type 4, 8 and 5.
