I want you to understand why using the additional tools are important and why certain essential oils were chosen. I will explain how best to use them to enjoy the full benefits alongside the Addiction Recovery Affirmation Cards (ARAC). The idea is to use the oils to gain access to your feelings, memories and thoughts that may be buried deep down and releasing them. Letting them go, making space for new positive memories, feelings and thoughts.
Have a look at the list opposite and locate where you fit in. Are you the person in addiction recovery?, are you looking for tools to get to that point? or maybe you are a friend/family member that wants a deeper understanding of what they are going through. These Essential Oils can be a tool that everybody can work with and they will fit into any space at home or in the workplace. If you are somebody who works or volunteers in the recovery sector then you will want to have a wholesale account for yourself as well as one for your organisation.
I have listed a few of the oils in the ARA deck with a little insight why they were chosen - I listed the ones that stand out for me and that I have worked with many times with great success.
They are in alphabetical order to make it easier.
