Holistic Mental Health
Part 1

"Holistic mental health is an approach to healing that encompasses one’s whole being: mind, body, heart, soul & environment." -Traci Moore

Holistic mental health is a more recent buzz word, but in traditional cultures, it has been practiced for centuries. Unfortunately, in many Western societies, preventative medicine has not always been valued or practiced. In the most recent years, and after several millions of dollars put into research to "prove" that a holistic approach is a more sustainable and effective one, the mental health field is now looking into ways of supporting individuals in their mental health journey from a "whole" person perspective. 

This approach, of course, is not new. For centuries, traditional healers believed that in order to "treat" someone, whether it was for a physical or emotional ailment, a full evaluation of the person and their environment needed to be completed. This approach does not just treat the presenting problem only but the entire person.

There are several holistic approaches that we can begin incorporating today to help prevent and increase our over all mental health wellness.    


"Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to treat or prevent a disease." -Geoff Lyth

Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to heap alleviate a variety of physical and emotional conditions. It is grounded on the basis of the body mind connection which makes it a great complimentary practice to other healing methods.  

Below are some essential oils and their mental health healing properties:
