Help, Rose Essential Oil makes my heart race

February 14, 2014

Ok so being Valentines day and all I thought I’d share with you a rather personal dilemma that is Valentines Day related – well Rose related really.

You see every time I sniff Rose Essential  Oil (each and every kind) my heart starts to go crazy.  No, not in a crazy good way more of a ‘you are going to die’ way.

I have been trying to shrug this off as a bit too weird for the scientist in me- maybe it was a ‘one off’, maybe it was because I was tired, maybe it was a bad batch, maybe I just don’t like it  but to be honest I’ve had enough.

Rose is an extremely popular oil, über feminine and absolutely top-notch when it comes to its vibrational power.  It is supposed to be a heart tonic, an aphrodisiac and a calming and supportive oil – not one that makes you feel like someone has squeezed the beat right out of you.  I wonder what is going on…..

A quick flick through some literature shows me that there is indeed some science behind Aromatherapy ( I didn’t doubt that there was) and that it is entirely possible for an inhaled oil to make its way into the lungs before ending up goodness knows where – in my case somewhere that messes with my heart. However, finding out why and how this happens is not quite so straightforward.

Essential oils are complex blends of chemicals and I am pretty sure that there is a little ‘X’ factor that gets lost when one tries to calculate and plot their each and every move by pulling them apart. But there must be some way of getting an explanation for my unfortunate reaction to something that so many of you find so lovely?

Maybe I was traumatized by a Rose as a child?

Maybe the smell is just too overwhelming and vibrationally heavy?

Maybe it just doesn’t suit me.

Anyhow I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and will be popping this on my research ‘to do’ list for the next few weeks.

I just want to be normal.

Actually no, I don’t.

I just want to understand.

PS: Happy Valentines Day, just hold the roses.

    Very interesting! My best guess is you may have a pre-existing health condition (good or poor circulation?) that causes such a reaction. Similar to how horsetail is ok to use for most people unless you have high blood pressure, or ingesting too much apple cider vinegar can drop your blood pressure.

      Interesting theory! I have been recovering from adrenal fatigue so I wonder if it is that? I am going to delve a bit deeper….
