What is Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)?
AFT was created by Dr. Benjamin Perkus. He incorporate Young Living Oils into his practice and saw the power of aromatherapy. It is extremely powerful in releasing negative emotions and affirming our intentions. It is an excellent tool for adults, and children, as well as MLM leaders and Sales departments in setting sales goals.
Complex emotions and memory can be triggered by a smell, an aroma. How do smells trigger such strong emotions and memories?
The answer is likely due to brain anatomy. Incoming smells are first processed by the olfactory bulb, which starts inside the nose and runs along the bottom of the brain. The olfactory bulb has direct connections to two brain areas that are strongly implicated in emotion and memory: the amygdala and hippocampus. Interestingly, visual, auditory (sound), and tactile (touch) information do not pass through these brain areas. This may be why olfaction, more than any other sense, is so successful at triggering emotions and memories.*
The Aroma Freedom Technique is a step-by-step process designed to be learned and used by anyone who wants more freedom in their life. It is an entirely new approach to aromatherapy, one that uses the power of pure essential oils to instantly and irresistibly shift a person's mental state, mood, and ability to take positive action. Through this process you will learn how to identify what you really want in life, what is blocking you, and how to release these blocks in a matter of minutes. Then, you learn a daily practice to keep you on track.

A decade ago, Herz and colleagues at Brown University tested whether there was a correlation between the emotional intensity of a memory triggered by a smell and activation in the amygdala. Participants first described a positive memory triggered by a particular perfume. Participants then came in the lab to participate in an fMRI experiment.
