Cherie’s Emotional Wellness e-Class
with Dr. David Hill March 10, 2015 (90 minutes)
Cherie’s thoughts on emotional wellness:
We know that for millennia, humans throughout the world have been using plants for therapeutic benefits. I’m fascinated by the fact that there are over 150 references to herbs, ointments and essential oils in biblical texts. Earliest records of the Ancient Chinese, Egyptians, and Greeks also indicate extensive use of herbs, tinctures, oils and aromatic plants as integral parts of their medicinal practices and treatments. Plants have incredible components that science hasn’t even begun to tap into.
Essential oils are my favorite emotional wellness tool.
In my research, I have discovered that oils are powerful organoleptic therapeutic agents whose chemical profiles are diverse and concentrated, thus supporting both the physical and emotional constitution of the body. In this regard, side effects are minimized. The guaiacol constituent isolated in the The German Mummy Project (above) one example of a plant compound’s adaptogenic capacity. I think it is super cool that plant chemicals are selective and “intelligently” know where to go and what to do.
The oil (or life blood) inside the plant holds that plant’s healing properties in a highly concentrated form. It rises to the top of the leaves, stems or bark during a gentle extraction process. The plant has special physiology to protect its precious oil from predators, climate changes and other environmental threats. Over the years, I have loved using therapeutic grade essential oils for myself, my family and clients, not just for the aromatherapy benefits, but also for their increased potential to work minutely on the cellular level, due to their dense molecular content. They are exceptionally concentrated, making them over 50 times more powerful than herbs. Many oils have a calming and relaxing effect on the nervous system and carry a unique ability to lift mood & support body chemistry.
“Lift Mood & Support Body Chemistry”
When you look at this illustration of the olfactory bulbs (below), you can see that the nose is the only place on the exterior body that is directly connected to the brain. This connection provides direct access to the emotional seat of the brain (the limbic area).

Inhalation is the fastest way to access the brain
which is why snorting drugs and doing chemical inhalants are common for a rapid “high.” I say, why not get “high” in a therapeutic sense by nourishing those limbic structures with concentrated aromatic, natural chemical compounds? Aromatherapy accomplishes this. Oils have the capacity to help relax and calm emotions immediately and powerfully.

On the left is a chemical profile or Elemene–
just one of the many hundreds of constituents extracted from plants for health and wellness benefits. Some essential oils, like Frankincense, contain as many as 200 different chemical constituents. These individual chemical constituents, when combined, can create some seriously powerful compounds that enhance the structure and function of our body systems.
The chemical compounds contained in certain essential oils have the ability to directly impact limbic brain structures and affect neural activity. This makes me super excited about the powerful ramifications for emotional wellness. Studies and trials are ongoing at universities, wellness clinics, treatment centers and hospitals all over the world to employ integrative, complementary tools like essential oils. There are over 1,000 different worldwide clinical studies on essential oils at
Emotional Wellness Pyramid
from my book
demonstrates that what you perceive and believe lays the foundation for how you self-nourish (and hence, how yucky or great you end up feeling).
The “basement” of wellness – what lies beneath your health practices – is your past experiences, the way you perceive those experiences, and the beliefs you then formed because of them (negative or positive).
The “foundation” of wellness includes the
learned ability to listen to your mind, body & spirit and then to anchor your senses
– enabling you to receive a fresh, new outlook and mindset. You are able to calm and support your nervous system, relieve any resistance and actually FEEL LIKE eating right and exercising! (Oh, and you’ll sleep much better, too).
Natural practices like meditation, yoga, energy and emotional release work, homeopathic remedies, medicinal herbs and therapeutic grade essential oils often take more time and patience take out because they are not designed as a “quick fix” because they are going core.
LISTEN TO YOUR GUT
Nutrition is one of the first lines of defense for addressing any physical or emotional issue. Try to eat nutrient dense, fiber rich foods, like greens, whole grains, berries, legumes, seeds and nuts – adding clean protein sources alongside. I take a high quality trio of supplements -with 72 trace organic minerals, land, marine and plant oils, herbs and antioxidants- every morning and evening. They contain components to nourish the cells in the gut, brain and nervous system with optimum nutrition and protection. I have been using these supplements for almost 7 years.
(see Recommended Daily Habits section below)
It’s important, as we’re talking about mood management and emotional wellness, to address the GUT, or “second brain,” as it is referred to in certain cultures and circles. It is literally the center of your body and a hub of emotional function. Research indicates there is a strong connection between mood, behavior and intestinal health.
Probiotics, Cultured & Fermented
Foods, Omegas & Food Enzymes
are integral to gut function and support. They are necessary supplements to the American diet – I would say particularly for our “disconnected” children – those with gut/brain imbalances and poor nutrient absorption capacities. These dietary supplements have been shown to foster good gut bacteria, enhance digestive, brain and metabolic function, and promote nutritional absorption.
People with sad and anxious feelings and low energy would benefit by revving up their sluggish and toxic colons by doing a gut cleanse every few months. It’s amazing how the mental fog starts to clear after a good ol’ cleanse.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE
Gone are the days when we compartmentalized the body and only observed the brain when it comes to mental and emotional malfunctioning! Chances are, if you have a physical issue, it has had an emotional root for some time. Let us address the whole person – mind, body and spirit –
instead of just body parts!
On your journey to wellness, you cannot be an island. You literally need education and support.
That “learned ability” to be mindful and anchor the senses that I referenced above? It takes a village, people! (Well, not “the” Village People…they dissolved in the early 80’s, didn’t they?) But seriously, you need a community to offer tools, training, education and the ability to connect with like-minded individuals who are on your same journey.
As I could say all day long and shout from the rooftops, healing requires proactive immersion of the senses in a constant environment of positivity. What are you seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling and touching?
Be sensitive to the types of media, music, food, messages and people you are exposed to.
The “foundation” of my Emotional Wellness Pyramid (above) involves working to stay focused on powerful words, thoughts & statements through Sensory Anchoring and Mindfulness.
This is perhaps the most crucial component to your overall health.
My 3 Minute Mood Miracle (freebie) on my website’s home page includes a multisensory process
for quick mood shifting that encourages emotional release and restoration.
With essential oils, supplement and other natural tools, be consistent with their usage.
Think CONSTANT NOURISHMENT, particularly for the heart, brain and gut.

“These suggestions are not comprehensive, as there are so many more essential oils and blends that could be used, depending on the underlying health issue. However, less is more! Choose only 1 or 2 essential oils at a time and only 1-3 drops.”
BE PREPARED: Diffuse oils in your home and/or workspace continuously. Keep positive notecards and oils with you at all times and apply oils “as needed” throughout the day as tension builds or energy fails.
Continuously drink oils in water and be mindful of thoughts.
Does this take extra time out of your day? Is the “nourishment mindset” and extra self-caretaking worth it? Yes, and yes! Not only worth it, but absolutely PIVOTAL to feeling alive. Lifestyle habits and continuous self-care of the senses are ultimately what create and preserve health.
You don’t heal through observation or by reading about it, nor do you heal through over-dependence upon other fallible humans and established systems. You are the expert on your body, and your health rests ultimately in your hands!
