What is Aroma Freedom Technique?
Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) was created by Dr. Benjamin Perkus. A psychotherapist since 1995 and a Young Living Essential Oil enthusiast since 2001. He is trained in EMDR, EFT, NET, ART, Neurofeedback, and other Energy Psychology Methods.
Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) helps you reach your goals by clearing out blocks to success and joy. Using essential oils in conjunction of specific awareness steps that leads to powerful changes that recipients can notice immediately.
Our response to smell is powerful and automatic, that is why this technique works. Do you remember the joy you feel when you encounter a familiar smell from childhood? Perhaps freshly baked bread or cookies like your grandma used to make or perhaps you encounter a smell which triggers a bad memory. The power of smell can take you back instantaneously to any scene or event.
This is because olfactory nerve connects directly to the limbic system of the brain. This is where primitive approach/avoidance – safe/unsafe feelings are created. The Amygdala triggers the fight/flight/freeze survival response.
So when we smell the specific Young Living Essential Oils in the protocol and with a sense of awareness, something very predictable happens. The oils urge the amygdala to allow the image/feeling to fade or it allows a positive thought to arise.
At the conclusion of the session, you are left with positive action steps to welcome what appears in your life.
AFT may be experienced as a group or as an individual. The process takes anywhere from 25-50 minutes (time frame varies with each individual). Dr. Perkus has recently developed a 60-Second Aroma Reset Technique to help reset current stressors. The aroma reset connects you with your inner guidance of where you are and where you may need to go (a full AFT session or move on with your day).
