Essential Oils

How Do Essential Oils Work to Improve Emotions and Behavior?




Essential oils are most effective when either inhaled (smelled) or applied topically over the skin.  When an essential oil is smelled (inhaled), a  chemical messages to the part of the brain that affects moods and emotions (The Limbic System). The limbic system is the center of memory and emotion. The oils can exert a powerful effect on mind, mood, and emotions based on what the body needs at the time.

Helping Hands Therapy Services only uses high quality, unadulterated essential oils. After extensive research, we have found that Young Living Essential Oils best meets the needs of our clients.  They have been tested for safety and effectiveness for use with children.    When appropriate, essential oils can be incorporated into therapy and wellness coaching sessions as part of a child’s sensory diet.

The Reconnect Collection

The Reconnect Collection was specifically designed to create a relaxing atmosphere,promote healthy sleep, and to support the focus of young minds.  These oils, when used in combination with a sensory diet, may support the sensory systems in children with sensory processing disorders such as autism, autism spectrum, and ADD/ADHD, or other developmental concerns.


The Reconnect Collection (Reconnect™, InTouch™, SleepyIze™, and GeneYus™) are designed to support emotions.  As a result, relax the mind, improve  attention and focus, and to help ground and unite the body, mind, and spirit with real life. The oils in this collection can uplift mood, help support a positive outlook, and allow the mind to react positively in such a way that the individual can “reconnect” with their environment and those around them.  Oils in this collection can also promote a restful night’s sleep by relaxing and calming the body and mind.  The oils also can help in releasing negative emotions, resulting in improved confidence and self esteem.
